  1. But the law may be same or similar
  2. Caveat, N.I. law can be different, You must allow a 'reasonable' * length of time after notifying the owners in writing Then it can be removed by you at their cost and moved to a safe place In no circumstances must you dispose of it nor bring it to harm whilst removing it Should it come to harm after you have place it in a safe place that is not your responsibility * 'reasonable' length of time is subjective but can mean a week, no less but more
  3. This company selling via ebay does acrylic paints matched to Humbrol colours. They have Humbrol 5 Dark Admiralty Grey https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154467526146?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110025%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.COMPOSITELISTINGS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20220405142716%26meid%3D35580c23c76148958670cbb5c02aef84%26pid%3D101506%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D25%26sd%3D203129507182%26itm%3D154467526146%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D4247815%26algv%3DAlgoIndex5SimRanker%26brand%3DHumbrol&_trksid=p4247815.c101506.m1851 I've not used any of their paints. I'm just informing
  4. The last few days were a round of filling & sanding the wing roots The frame behind the pilot was sitting too low so I remade it, the 406 has also received a coat of grey primer Frog would have you cut the wheels in half to thin them for 'wheels up' If you've ever built an Airfix Spitfire I they come with thin half wheels for 'wheels up'. I used a pair of those It needs tidying up I've started on the painting of the white and red stripes There is no reason not to. The painting on wings and rear fuselage will not interfere with me making the radiators
  5. Construction started a few day ago The fuselage as it sits today That tail extension needs filing down in diameter to fit and its end needs a hole filled Strangely on this issue of the kit there was no provision for stand. I'm tempted to make a hole for one
  6. Work has started First thing was to drill out the wings for the wheel wells Top, as Frog supplied, bottom, drilled out Construction of a cockpit is started
  7. Work has started, but nowt to show Cleaning up the parts, filling in marks et cetera
  8. I found out the Swiss MS406s didn't have the machine-gun bulges on the wings, so they had to come off (top, original below) Both tail plane struts were short moulded so replacements from HSS. The rear of the Morane is fabric covered, Frog has light lines here. A few strips of thin decal put on and under paint will represent the stringers under stretched fabric, It will be very subtle, but seen Main wings go on today
  9. Designing leather items and working out how to construct them. Almost always comes when I'm tired and about to drop off into sleep and I can do nowt about it until after 9 in the morning
  10. garnished with pickled smurfs
