  1. -Thanks for your encouraging words, I will first try my hand with an "ordinary" Swedish glad, for now I begin collecting the necessary material for the Gauntlet. My main concern is about finding enough airfoilded strips for the masts andthe wind screen, but thanks to your demensionned drawing I can do the job. for the neceessary fuselage skin repladement, I have enough beer cans eager to give me their skin for the science ....
  2. - Very inspiring post, it gives me the idea to built my own, I have two ICM Glad. Mk I; Owing to cost of the resin Silverwings Gauntlet, I feel Iit could be possible to turn one of these into a Gauntlet at cost of some surgeonnery work and adding some parts as wind screen , gear and wing masts.and some blaked off eyes for the inside structure of the cockpit....
  3. - Excellent, not easy to built from the box, yours is a testimony of your skill to obtain this result
  4. - I've followed this post from the beginning, this triggered my will to build mine, but I'm facing a problem, not deadly be quiet, I have a set of masking for a Glad in winter cmouflage in Finland, but these Glads had all skis instead of wheels and my kit is graced with beautifull wheels (ICM RAF Mk I 1/32), so I'm in search of a whole set of skis, scratch building them is far above my capabilities owing to their complexity, so if ever, some one among you all had in his spare box,or in one to be built kit one of these days gathering dust somewhere in a stash, or the possibility to print them in 3D, I will gratefully accept his help, I didn't find any positiv answer in my surrounding and writing in Ukraine for spare today is not the best idea to have... So finger crossed......
  5. - Ones wonder wether it s a model or the real thing, those color photo really make the difference......
  6. Spassiba, the mounting of this very detailed kit is greatly helped by the tremendous notice of 40 pages and the quality of the resin, the clear part being in this material also -The photos are a bit blurred but sufficient to let appreciate the detailing level of the whole.The VERY clear resin parts can be easily worked with a dremel ( and a non shivering hand eventualy)
  7. - Extract from the assembly instruction sheet 40 pages showing the extent of the amazing details of the cockpits and rear gun turret. - Only the painting is required
  8. -Outstanding camo, those bloody German really wanted the skin of the poor modellers....Please Jeannot, gives us daylight photos with some of your nice cloudy backgrounds of which you have the secret......Those monochrome backgrounds are boring
  9. - In the days these Trimaster kits wefre realesed, they were the best on the market , I remenber having built an entire Tagjagd to me alone.....
  10. -Excellent.......They are irresistible......
  11. - It's a true beauty, The buckles facilitate greatly the task, seeing the splendid result you achieve, I've made my mind I will not use the photoetched rigging but buckles and wire system... -I'm eager to see your Strinbag... J.M
  12. - Thanks to you, Patch has found his refuge, I guess this goes with some fooding, be sure he will reward you with his indefectible friendship. -In the same way, we opened a free self-sevice. It's a great success for our "out-doors" -I can't tell wether they are migrants or not ? but they all belong to the same tribe with only two "caucasian". black&white "Kiki"like Patch, and an unnamed tigerstriped grey & white...we even have an hedgehog !!......., here three of them, but they are more numerous...." -With the restaurant, they can enjoy some shelters but not as sophisticated as Patch's one... In the Middle-Age we would have been sentenced as witches and burnt on the bonfire......with all these black cats.. -We have identified :, "Trumpy;" "Bo Jo", "Ourska", "The Uncle", "Cosette", "Ely", "Jack beau regard", "The Guard" ,probably the Great Chief, it seems to watch after the others, remarquably, he never eat before the others have eaten, sense of reponsablity or the certainty to have fresh foods ?.I won't bet....He probably noticed we are around there.....
  13. - As I do.......Sometime...but hushhhhh
  14. - Baby Ely and mother........I can't resist sharing with you this moment of quietness ........... (A bit blurry but I ouldn't be closer - sorry)
  15. - Nothing new about rigging your beautiful Glad Dunny?
  16. - The best tctics to grap a target - First: Observation phase.... Second: Cautious aproach march... -Third : Attack - Retreat..... - BEURK......... very strange smell these saussages.......... - Young Ely 2 monthes kitten .......
  17. - Something to remind us our young years. In those days, even AIRFIX was pleague with missing parts from time to time. With Marcel, my pal both beginners in modelling, having previously suffered this horrible and incomprehensible trouble, something coming from England could only be perfect, each time we bought a kit, we turn the first corner of the street, opened the box and made a scrupoulous inventory of the parts, if ever one was missing, immediatly back to the shop for an exchange of the box, dewly checked this time in front of the poor puzzled "dealer"...
  18. - Camo oustanding mastery, The Great Jaennot is back again......!
  19. -Uschi thread looks, to me, more réalistic than P.E parts, that don't ease my dilemma for my Glad to come...... Congrats for your excellents Stringbag and Walrus
  20. -Any troubles with P.E bracing,?
  21. -To illustrate my previous post, the bracing wires were made of fishing wire
  22. -Fishing wire has very interesting properties. I use it each time when I need some wiring, notably for antennas wires, and rigging at occasion.; It is sturdy and can be tensed without problem, this gives you a perfectly straight line, insensitive to humidity which means no slackness, can be easily fixed where you need with a drop of C.A glue, it is cheap and can be found everywhere,a reel is enough for your life you may find different thickness according the scale you are working, it can be slightly green or blue colored, or not, but you can paint it. In this case it may looks oversized, just use lower gauge wire. I often use it natural, at small gauge the color is unnoticeable, and remain perfectly visible, On the wrong side it has no elasticity but this capacity is not really usefull with this matérial... Just try it and make your mind......
  23. -I have Gaspatch models given for 1/32 metal buckles ,they look very small, I even don't know if a 0,8 fishing wire may go through and I have doubt about being metallic, hence strength , if some one knows more about these..?
