  1. Commercial rubbish. He sold out with that one.
  2. The only music I've listened to for about 30 years is "My Grandfather's Clock" by Val Doonican. After hearing that, there is no need for any other music.
  3. Looks great but your images are 4000 pixels wide and 4MB in size and thus load slowly. They will display far more quickly and take up less bandwidth if you resize them to about 1000 pixels max dimension and substantially below 1MB. I'm not complaining, just passing on useful advice that is available elsewhere on the forum

    Those Lockdown Blues

    Grays, Chadwell St Mary then Workington for me. That was a bit of a culture shock

    I spent my early years not far from there, and I must say that Pistea is much more appropriate than the correct spelling of Pitsea!
  6. It's because each photo is very large - 6000 × 4000 pixels and about 4MB. If you want photos to display quickly and not clutter up the webosphere, keep them to about 1000 pixels in the largest dimension and well under 1MB each. I'm not criticising, just trying to share the good advice that's set out elsewhere on the site
  7. Absolutely fantastic. Too many excellent details to really single one out but the 'wear' on the headlight bezel is just perfect.
  8. Indeed @Mr Mansfield - but a magnifying headset has a lens for each eye so depth perception is kept as normal. They make a huge difference...
  9. Hello and welcome!
  10. This has been a great project to follow. I can't wait to see how you tackle the wings and engines. Because you won't be able to stop yourself, will you?
  11. What a thoughtful idea! He/she is lucky to have a friend like you. I don't have any experience of Herpa kits, but snap-fit models are generally good for beginners. When all's said and done, it's civil and it's KLM so I'd say go for it!
  12. Before you attack it with chemicals, try leaving the assembly in the freezer for a day or so. That should weaken the bond, then a bit of gentle manipulation will often result in a clean separation of the parts.
  13. You're obviously a fast learner - that's all looking very good
  14. Like this. Copy URL (in this case " https: //i.imgur.com /6pZS9Hk. png" but I've inserted extra spaces to stop the board automatically showing the image) and then paste it into your text without the additional spaces. And this happens: Like magic, isn't it
