    What the Hell is Bit Locker ?

    I have Home version and no BL …. Whoop, whoop ! I feel sorry for you with this headache . Robert's post above sounds good . Could prove once and for all. Otherwise a PC fixer is your best bet or at least give you a "known for sure" remedy over the phone .
  3. Great job.. Whirly decal made me laugh. Didn't know what that was at first .. Bet that was fun ! Well done , very clean and neat looking That rain gutter over the pax door ,decal looks a pain too.

    What the Hell is Bit Locker ?

    I went in to control panel/system and security .. I haven't got Bitlocker , searched control panel ,nothing . I'm on windows 10 . I don't want it but why haven't I got it ? Am I looking in the right place ? I just want to make sure I haven't got a chance of getting this problem .

    Airfix 1/144 727 Fuselage Crease

    Having zoomed that photo right up , I realised that the job I was working in 85 was on the lap joint about a foot lower than the skin kink . You can see that quite clearly on that pic . The kinked / shaped skin is one piece.

    Airfix 1/144 727 Fuselage Crease

    This zooms up Click on Large and go to 200% . Quite pronounced on this one and looks sharper than your kit .

    Airfix 1/144 727 Fuselage Crease

    The top skin is over the bottom skin and flat ish but it does change section below that lap joint and not a crease as such , shaped . The thickness of paint can wreck the effect and white is harder to make out . The rivets were invisible and took some finding . The 727 has the same upper fuse as the 707 but different lower fuse , the 737s had a different lower fuse to both. Best view is on the NMF American Airlines first 727s in the AstroJets scheme (Red Lightning bolt cheatline )

    Airfix 1/144 727 Fuselage Crease

    I've drilled out hundreds of 3/16 Csk -DD rivets out of that lap joint on that section change to get the corrosion and remove the anti fret/interface Melonex tape between the joint on a Dan's ex Japan Airlines 727-46 G-BAFZ … I wished they didn't have one but I was stuck with it and was a pain . Luckily the Dan-Air guys decided to strike and I ended up on ex Northwest 707-351C and American -323 in the snow unluckily ! Lasham Jan 1985

    Telford 2018

    Thanks very much for taking the time to put these up . great shots . The models are stunning. My favourites are the Cutaways showing structure and components ,esp the stripped back Mossie, Both Yellow Wessex and that Spey engine with all the detail . Aircraft servicing scenes . That WNW Lanc is something else BTW. Too much to list really . Thanks again ! Edit I forgot the monochrome Spitfire dio which is brilliant and quite tricky to get right I should think , great idea.

    You're scaring me now . I've got a Lenovo LT . It's been good as Gold and, connecting with Oak , hasn't missed a beat in 3 years . If you are locked out your stuff isn't lost . You can remove the hard drive and plug that in to a External Hard Drive Docking Station . If you can't get hold of a External Hard Drive Docking Station ( I have one , under £10 ) any Computer repair shop can retrieve all the info off there you want to disc or another device using the USB for about £5 ish . That would also mean buying a new Hard drive and all the hassle that goes with that That works if the Hard drive crashes too , no idea how it works in a Docking Station but not in the laptop. Hopefully it will be okay . What a pain though . Docking Station link . It's ace BTW https://www.ebuyer.com/229065-startech-external-hard-drive-docking-station-satdock25u

    Peter Jackson's new film announced yesterday

    That was very well done and when it went from B&W to colour the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. The war is here boys . I couldn't believe the clarity, colour and all the textures jump out. I don't think I've never seen actual war footage as clear and detailed as that . I agree what a great job . It was riveting . Glad I recorded it . HD sound shook the room .
