  1. Looking good Alistair sir. I would probably sand the vortex generators , you need the profile... Still, you making your way through her. Keep up the great work. Stay safe. Simon.
  2. In 3,027 years time life will be really good or really bad. It's 5050. Simon.
  3. Well nice work there Giorgio, as ever. As for miracles, I still looking for the tail wheel leg.... Stay safe. Simon.
  4. Ughhhh, that is one problem when "Spraying " your markings on an uneven surface. Hope that your fingers get better mate. Simon.
  5. OK, this is where it gets to the fun part, masking... But the last bit added for now, the windscreen. First unmask the inners. The some TET to fix. I see filler coming. Finally, those drop tank stays all done apart from some bends. Stay safe. Simon.
  6. What would model building be like if you did not have to battle something? Thanks @AliGauld, @elger, @corsaircorp and @Hamden. Well, time for a short up date. Tail feathers blended in nicely, (I hope). I.P. and coaming fitted. And the Oil cooler "Scoop" added to. A bit of work there needless to say. Just a couple of parts to fit I think before the dreaded masking and application of the "Lie Detector" (Primer). Stay safe. Simon.
  7. Great stuff Ced, as for the stencils, unless you are looking through a magnifier does it matter. Simon.
  8. Great work there Giorgio, another fantastic Phantom to add to your collection. Simon.
  9. Those damn stencils can be a pita, even wearing an optivisor mate. Still a good save Ced. Simon.
  10. It is Alistair, though my eyes are still the same LOL. Thankfully no more bending/forming but still a few fiddly bits to fit. Simon.
  11. Thanks @AliGauld, @elger and @Hamden. While waiting for the tail feathers to set I decided to attack the last bits of P.E., namely the underwing stores stays. Yep that`s a 5p coin . The three circles had to be folded "Z" like. Before fitting to the pylons. They still have to be bent upwards but will wait until they have set.. I still have the other two to build/fold. Stay safe. Simon.
  12. And to you and yours CC, and I have a STABLE stash (Stash attained beyond life expectancy) Thanks @Bell209, @Hamden, @elger, @cobraleader and @AliGauld. Well, left overnight then attacked with some wet and dry (Wet) this was the result. Tail feathers assemble. And fitted. Leave those to set before maybe a swipe of filler? And yes, my camera is fully charged now, so better pics hopefully. Stay safe. Simon.
  13. Happy New Year to you and yours Ced. Good to see that you are at the bench again mate. Simon.
  14. Yep, that wind has got a chill to it, even down south mate. Once you get the lie detector on i.e. primer it will show any faults as always. Try and keep warm mate. Simon.
  15. Sadly Alistair the amount of plastic I removed/ sanded away sorting the seam out has come back t haunt me but.. we will see. Thanks @elger Well, I took the plunge and glued the wings on. My camera died so phone pics for now. (Camera battery charging) I left the inner trailing edge un glued after reading a write up on this kit, and does make for easier alignment. Leave that to dry now, and see what filling needs to be done. Stay safe. Simon.
  16. Hi folks, and a very happy New Year to you all. Thanks @giemme, @elger, @corsaircorp, @Hamden, @cobraleader and @AliGauld. OK, time for an update. Gunsight finished, as well as the IP + coaming, ready to fit. Started to make some templates for the Main U/C bays. I will transfer them to card later. A word of warning to anyone building this kit, make sure that this area is cleaned as it fits into the cockpit floor. I am sorry that this one is blurred but it shows the problem I have with fitting the wings. When sanding the fuselage nose area I removed to much plastic. Hence the lip, damn... When squeezed together there is still the gap, but removing anymore plastic is a no no, as the wings abut the cockpit floor and won`t go any tighter. Well, off for a cuppa now. Stay safe. Simon.
  17. So sad, the greatest player I ever saw. A true gent as well. Simon.
  18. Well Alistair, first of all Happy New Year sir. Great job done on the seat mate, looks well good, plus the other bits added/ removed. Let`s hope for a decent modelling year, work permitting that is. Stay safe. Simon.
