  1. Thanks @Dr. Quack, @giemme, @AliGauld, and @Hamden. The good lady is OK for now, she has a few more tests to do but things are moving in the right direction, for now. Thanks @elger. Right, some washes done then some matt varnish X 86. I am not that happy about the finish, I may give it another coat , not sure. Anyhow, have a great evening peeps. Stay safe. Simon.
  2. Well Alistair, I have just caught up with this build, and you have seemed to of whizzed through it fast than a Porsche mate. Looking quite resplendent it her Yellow coat. You could not miss her... Stay safe Simon.
  3. Something had to be done about them, it was getting quite annoying, but they worked. More than welcome Johnny. Thanks @elger, @Sturmovik, @Biggles87, @Dr. Quack, @Hamden and @shortCummins. Sorry for no recent updates but things have been a bit up in the air so to speak. The SWMBO has had some poor health so the bench has been second thoughts in my mind. Glad to say the she is better now , as such with appointments arranged with the consultants. She as always sends greetings to all. Well, time on the bench. Gloss varnish out W/S Gloss. Cockpit and wheel bay done. Tyres as well. Then out with the Yellow X 8. Prop tips and spinner. Next!!! Alcad Black Primer for these parts. Canopy. Windscreen? Cockpit coaming . And some P.E. , grill and brace bar. Let that lot dry before the next job, washes.... Stay safe. Simon.
  4. What happens when you drink 10 oz of Magnesium Citrate? I'm glad you asked... 12:05 pm: It's time. You shotgun a 10 oz bottle like it's a lukewarm PBR. It's suppose to be grape flavored but it's becoming quite clear that whoever led the R&D team that day has never actually tasted anything grape in their life. You are already regretting this decision. 12:06 pm: You eat a handful of chips, It's going to turn to liquid form before it even clears your throat but you don't care. All is right in the world at this moment. Hold on to that. You're about to enter a very dark period in your life. 12:37 pm: First sign of life. The pressure is growing. You already have 5 lbs of impacted crap in your colon and you basically just drank the "safe for humans" version of Drano. You feel a poop coming on finally. You think it's time. You're wrong. You get a little snake turd as a teaser. Take note...this is the last semi-solid thing you will see leaving your body for the next 24 hours. 12:57 pm: That little science experiment you got cooking is about to reach it's boiling point. Your stomach is angry now. It hates you...you can feel it. You have exactly .3 seconds to make it to the nearest toilet but you can't run... NEVER run! You pray to god there is enough elasticity in your butthole to keep the gates closed 5 more steps as you start to preemptively undo your pants to save valuable time. Almost there. 3...2...1... 12:58 pm: Sweet Mary, mother of God...is this real life? Your cheeks barely hit the seat and all hell breaks loose. The crap/ water mixture you've just created comes out with such force that it actually sprays the back of the toilet bowl at a 45 degree angle thus deflecting it in every direction but down. Is that blood? False alarm. That's just the remnants of a cherry pie you ate at Thanksgiving...when you were 5. The smell is horrid...the sound is frightening. You try to clench whats left of your butthole to soften the blow but it's not working. The whole house just heard your liquid fart as it gurgled out of your butt. 1:06 pm- 8:30 pm: Everything's a blur. You have crapped out everything you have ever eaten since the day you were born, everything your ancestors have ever eaten since the early 1800's, and your butt now feels like you have a flaming hot Cheeto and the tears of a thousand Jalapeno seeds stuck in it. You're now curled up in the bathtub crying because you have to remain within arm's reach of the toilet at all times. You have the poop sweats. You meet Jesus. 8:37 pm: You're broken. Your butthole is broken. Your spirit's broken. Life as you know it will never be the same. But...tomorrow's a new day. You're going to wake up, throw on the only remaining pair of underwear have and you're going to run up to Walmart with the last shred of dignity you have left...and buy yourself a new toilet brush. You've earned it. Simon.
  5. It is looking quite sturdy on the wings Tom, and lots to add as well. Nice work sir. Stay safe. Simon.
  6. Seems a very busy time with the decals there Giorgio. All looking good though. Stay safe. Simon.
  7. An elderly man went to his doctor and said, "Doc, I think I'm getting senile. Several times lately, I have forgotten to zip up." "That's not senility," replied the doctor. "Senility is when you forget to zip down." Simon.
  8. All looking great from here Alistair. Nice work on the engine too. Keep it up mate. Stay safe. Simon.
  9. All looks well Alistair. The P.E. can be a pain but worth it at times though. Stay safe. Simon.
  10. In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the mystic delivered grave news: "There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just be blunt - prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year." Visibly shaken, Laura stared at the woman's lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands. She took a few deep breaths to compose herself. She simply had to know. She met the fortune teller's gaze, steadied her voice, and asked: "Will I be acquitted?" Simon.
  11. Thanks Alistair, we did too. Thanks lads, a bit of a problem coming up. Cheers John, hope all is well with you and yours. Thanks @elger , @shortCummins and @Dr. Quack. Well folks, sorry for the late reply but life rears it`s ugly head again. These Eduard kits are great but their locating pins are very small and make things a bit frustrating to say the least when trying to dry fit the cockpit . So. You can see the size of the pins ( Look at the one on the upper engine cover. So my plan is to add some tabs to make lining up a bit easier. Plastic strips. Then fitted wit C/A . I will leave those to set before trying them out. Well it`s peeing down again so no spraying but hopefully tomorrow? Stay safe. Simon.
  12. Nice work there Tom, easily explained to for us luddites. Stay safe. Simon.
  13. A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. He seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested. The case came up in court. The Judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself. The man replied... "Well your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition. She sat under a sweets sign that said, "The Double Mint Twins are Coming" and I grinned. Then she moved and sat under a sign that said "Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling", and I had to smile. Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said "William's Big Stick Did the Trick", and I could hardly contain myself. BUT, your Honor, when she moved for the fourth time and sat under the sign that said "Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident".. ..I just lost it......."CASE DISMISSED!!" Simon.
  14. All looks good from here Alistair. Yep, we paint and glue parts into builds that hardly get seen at all, but you know that they are there... Stay safe. Simon.
  15. A lot of paint going on mate. Busy, busy. All looks good from here mate. Stay safe. Simon.
  16. Go for it Giorgio, they even have marked out where the gun bays go on the upper wings. If you wanted to add them I suppose. Cheers Alistair, slowly getting there , see below. Thanks @shortCummins and @Dr. Quack. Right, work on the rear of the cockpit. Rack, tank and brace installed. And then populated by the equipment. Oh, numb nutz here though he had finished the U/C bay but forgot the bottom panel. Now fixed. It`s also part of the cockpit floor too. Leaving things to set for a while, with just a couple of bits to add to the cockpit later. Well tea is cooked all bar the Spaghetti, yep Spag Bol. Stay safe. Simon.
  17. Fine work on the old S.Bag. I like the finish on the "Dickie" seat behind the pilot, great job. A bit of "Poetic" Licence does the job here and there Alistair. Stay safe. Simon.
  18. Thank you Giorgio, it is just stuff I am learning from B.M. Cheers Alistair, luckily I some brass rod left, my model shops have now closed, the nearest one is a 10 minute train ride away. Thanks @Hamden and @Dr. Quack. OK folks, pressure bottle added to the U/C bay. Ready for varnish/weathering. Now the seat belts. Well, not great, but viewed from above will be passable. I suppose I can get on with the rest of the cockpit now. Stay safe. Simon.
  19. Well, you got badgered into doing a "Stringbag" mate. Lovely stuff. I will watch from afar as they say. Stay safe. Simon.
  20. And there is more Giorgio. Head rest painted Red Brown, as per instructions. While that dried, gun barrels fitted. Then back to the seat again to remove the masking gel applied earlier. Just the seat belts to do, which I am a bit nervous about, but what the feck. Stay safe. Simon.
  21. Cheers lads, thanks @elger and @Hamden. Well, at last some time at the bench. Replacement barrels cut from 0.5 mm brass tube ,internal dia 0.3 mm, near enough for a rivet counter I suppose. Seat armour paint XF 1. And the equipment rack was re-coated with XF 62 Olive Drab. Just a few more bits to do before I can finish off the inners. Head rest painted and seat weathered. Seat belts fitted. Etc , etc. Stay safe. Simon. Seat belts fitted
  22. As you said Alistair "She is on her feet" and just a few bits left. Nice work mate. Stay safe. Simon.
