  1. Now we're talking! Shaping up very well, Simon! Ciao
  2. Still, it didn't rain, so all was good Although, the amount of beer and wine that was had may account as a minor flooding... Successful surgery, I see - we can definitely call it progress! (I really need to look into those Berna clamps of yours... ) Ciao
  3. Exactly - no way! Top job on what I regard as a decals hell Here you NBS standard (Navy Bird Smooth, for the uninitiated) is at full display! Ciao
  4. Thanks John, I'm glad you like it! Cheers Thom, thank you! To answer your questions, here's a link at the clear resin I bought: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B08TBD8QXP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And yes, I use a simple UV flashlight. like this: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B072MGHYH2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&th=1 Just as a final update, last WE I went to Old Buck with @CedB, @Fritag, @The Spadgent, @perdu and @Terry1954 to deliver the model(s) (and visit Norwich points of interests, namely a few pubs ), so here she is alongside the wonderful Defiant that Steve built: and here's the ever growing fighters collection at Old Buck @CedB bombers couldn't be displayed, as Jim, the Museum curator, is in the process of moving all the big birds to a new Museum he's preparing (top guy, and restless ) Ciao
  5. Thank you, George! Much appreciated! See below for some Museum pics Cheers mate, thank you! Thanks Keith, glad you like it! Thanks @mullac2001! Thank you Cookie - so glad you like it! It made to Old Buck all in one piece, it was actually a very smooth trip - and we had a great time with all the usual suspects there Here it is, next to @Fritag's wonderful Defiant and here's the (ever growing) fighters collection at Old Buck: I couldn't take a picture of the bombers because Jim (for who doesn't know him, he's the Museum curator, top guy! ) is building a new (additional) Museum and is in the process of moving the big birds there. Ciao
  6. Oh for goodness sake! Those test prints are just amazing! Ciao
  7. Congrats on the show results, Bill! (and the sale, too... ) This Phantom is fully compliant with NBS standards, Pepsi can or not An absolute decals nightmare, and for this even more outstanding! Ciao
  8. I told you decals are evil..... Glad you were able to fix it, though Ciao
  9. Glad to know things are going in the right direction for you. Simon Definitely! Ciao
  10. Cheers Terry, thank you! Very much looking forward to get there! Glad you approve of, Keith! Way too kind, Alain - thank you! Cheers mate, thank you! Fingers crossed indeed! Thanks Steve! Cheers Bill, thank you Looking at this pic, it would appear the wire was there (courtesy of https://www.worldwarphotos.info, I will remove the photo and just post the link if this is infringing any sort of copyrights): Also, I don't think this necessarily contradicts what you mentioned above: the typical arrangement for a P-47D of that period would be the antenna wire connected from the fin to an insulator located just right of the antenna mast base, so maybe the different placing in this case was to improve compatibility with the British comms system. Of course, this is all speculation from my part, because I know close to nothing about radio equipment; I'm quite convinced I can see the wire from the photo above, though. Ciao
  11. Sorry I missed your comment, mate - thank you! Go for it, it's a great kit! Ciao
  12. Cheers Massimo, thanks! Good to hear from you! Next is completing my Greek Spook build Ciao
