    The Sea Fury rumour thread 2

    I built the model featured in Workbench and as I understand it there will be British 500lb GP bombs supplied in the production kit. That was a change made after the initial test shots. Cheers Jim

    Revell London bus, Routemaster RML

    Call me a pedant if you like but why is a bus that goes from Dalston to Piccadilly Circus heading south over Westminster Bridge??? Something to ponder over the mince pies.... Cheers all Jim

    Air Intake Covers

    I use the metal foil that you get covering the lids of Gu deserts (posh eh!) - but I suppose any similar metal foil would do . It is just the right thickness to be able to be bent, folded and cut to shape easily. I will try and post up some shots of my Rafale B - which badly needs them to avoid the see through look. HTH Jim

    Deon If you can give me a heads up about when you might next go to Mid Sussex I'll dig this monster out of the loft where it is sulking in a box so you can have a closer squint. Having admired a lot of your stuff from a distance I think I have more to learn from you than you have from me ... but thank you anyway. Michaelvk - thank you for the nice comment ... means a lot from someone who does it for living ... I consider myself a shambolic amateur (well that's what I am really) . Now for a change of scene I'm just finishing the Klingon Bird of Prey ..... would anyone like some shots of that if I can sort me mouldy old camera out??? Take care guys Jim

    Hi Piero This is truly excellent.I am very interested in getting hold of the resin parts that you have produced to correct this kit. Could you PM me to let me know how I can do this? Many thanks for your help - keep going Cheers Jim

    The Friday Night Thread

    Friday night and once again the pub is empty! (Sidles up behind the bar and pours a nicely balanced Pomerol) Alright - I'll kick off. Where do you stand on putting in detail where no-one can see it. I have to say I never used to - but as I get older I find myself doing it more and more (in spite of declining optics). Just put in load of plumbing in the deepest recess of my SU 25 wheel bays. No-one will ever see I can be assured - but I know it's there and somehow that gives me a good feeling . Is it a waste of time or something to be applauded? What do you do and if you do it where do you stop? That was nice think I'll have another Cheers Jim

    Hi Robert Incidentally if you wanted to add some weapons Aerobonus (by Aires) are doing some really nice Soviet kit. I just got hold of some UB-16-57 Rocket launchers for my SU-25 - they are lovely. I'll be going this way again on my Russian aircraft Cheers

    Thanks Troy. I may have a go with the magnifying glass trick. I have just bought myself a photo booth - the eBuyer photo studio - for £15.99 - see Mike's "Bargains" thread elsewhere and that includes the two small spots. I am also in the market to trade up my years old poxy Canon Ixus for an entry level DSLR - possibly the Canon 1100D with a 17-85 zoom - although I can't see Santa arriving with that more's the pity - and I will have to forego a fair few kits. Thanks for the kind remarks and helpful advice - this is why I like being on this forum. Cheers Jim
