  1. A bloke was admitted to our local hospital as somehow (hmm...) a golf ball had become lodged up his bum. Apparently it's gone up a fairway. Simon.
  2. Sprayed some XF 62 Olive Drab. Time to chill before those stripes.... Stay safe. Simon.
  3. Thanks Alistair, I am concerned about the bigger ones though. Thanks good sir, no decals for the stripes included so... Thanks @elger, @cobraleader, @Dr. Quack and @Hamden. Well after a couple of days off back to the build. More masking, this time the anti-glare panel. I have still to mask the stripes though. Stay safe. Simon.
  4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-65108130 Sad news, one of those nice guys. Simon.
  5. It`s that waiting part that can be annoying Alistair but you doing a great job. Simon.
  6. Damn, I thought you would have finished it by now Alistair. But you are doing a grand job on her. Simon.
  7. I have a H/S airbrush 0.2 / 0.4 and was wondering whether there I could fit a 0.3 needle and nozzle ? I have a couple of Chinese 0.3`s but they have seen better days. My Sparmax 0.4 is great for priming/varnishing but a bit heavy handed for laying down camo etc. T.I.A. Simon.
  8. Thanks @AliGauld, @giemme, @elger and @Hamden. OK, I removed some of the masking around the exhausts and found some paint creep. I am not worried as there is bound to be more somewhere. As I said earlier, those decals. Printed by Fundekals, they seem to have quite an amount of carrier film plus quite fragile too. This could be fun when I come to apply the rest of them Anyhow a pic of the prop. They did not turn out to bad... Well, the wind and rain turned up so I have put a halt to the spraying until tomorrow. Also I want to let the white dry thoroughly be fore masking. Stay safe. Simon.
  9. You can never trust over spray Alistair LOL. On with White XF 2. Then some Stainless Alcad 2 ALC 115. Second coat of white. A bit blurred again, damn. Let`s wait for that lot to dry before the fun of masking for the black. Stay safe. Simon.
  10. Thank you lads, a bit annoyed with my self about the finger prints. Thanks @elger, @Hamden, @Dr. Quack, @cobraleader, and @The Spadgent. Well, masking was the first task of the day after doing my chores (What chores?) thanks a cold beer... There is a different colour to the surrounds of the exhausts, masked ready. Sorry a bit blurred. And then I did the area for the I.D. stripes (No decals for that) (more on the decals later. Time for some spraying now. Stay safe. Simon.
  11. I thought it spectacles , testicles, wallet and watch!!! Simon.
  12. Alistair , she will be finished by the time you go back to work LOL. Simon.
  13. Four older men are walking down a street. They turn a corner and see a sign that says, "Old Timers Bar - ALL drinks 10 cents." They look at each other and then go in, thinking this is too good to be true. The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, gentlemen? “There’s a fully stocked bar, so each of the men orders a martini. In no time the bartender serves up four iced martinis shaken, not stirred, and says, "That's 10 cents each, please." The four guys stare at the bartender for a moment, then at each other. They can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced, with the bartender again saying, "That's 40 cents, please.“ They pay 40 cents, but their curiosity gets the better of them. They've each had two martinis and haven't even spent a dollar yet. Finally, one of them says, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime apiece?" "I'm a retired tailor from Phoenix," the bartender says, "and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery Jackpot for $125 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime. Wine, Liquor, beer it's all the same." "Wow! That's some story!" one of the men says. As the four of them sip their martinis, they can't help noticing seven other people at the end of the bar who don't have any drinks in front of them and haven’t ordered anything the whole time they've been there. Nodding at the seven at the end of the bar, one of the men asks the Bartender, "What's with them?" The bartender says, "They're retired people from Florida. They’re waiting for Happy Hour when drinks are half-price.” Simon.
  14. Thanks lads, "Silver Machine" it is then. Thanks @elger, @Memphis, @Dr. Quack, @cobraleader and @Hamden. After allowing her to dry for 36 hours (other things cropped up) I had a food look and found some roughness around the wing roots. But when handling her I saw some finger prints on the underside. Not visible here but they are there. So a quick rub down of the affected areas and spray over. I am now leaving alone again to cure. Which means finding something else to do... Stay safe. Simon.
  15. Those bits you added look great Alistair. Amazing now how kit producers are now adding the dunny!!! Simon.
  16. An Englishman walks into a pub in Wales and orders a pint. As the bar goes dead silent, he's uncomfortably aware all eyes are upon him..... "Where are you from?" says the barman; "You sound English.." "I'm from across the Severn," he replies nervously. "What do you do, across the Severn?", "I'm a taxidermist." "What on earth is one of those?" "I mount animals." "It's alright boys," shouts the barman "he's one of us!". Simon.
  17. Nice bits Alistair Fnar. She should great with that lot added, especially with the amount of glazing around the office. Stay safe. Simon.
  18. Cheers @AliGauld. OK got carried away on the last post forgetting that I had to do the undersides, numb nuts. So here there are. Canopy. A bit blurred, sorry. And finally the pylon(s). As they say, patience is a virtue, so will leave alone for the night to gas off. You all have a peaceful time . Simon.
  19. Thanks @AliGauld, @giemme, @cobraleader and @Dr. Quack. Well, masking time is here again. Now time to spray some Polished Aluminium ALC 105. Flaps. Canopy. I have still to put down a second coat but I am happy with what I have done. Stay safe. Simon.
  20. Ah Alistair, a Marillion fan, I saw them at Castle Donnington, supporting ZZ Top. Love the "Fish " era. Simon.
  21. Thanks lads, see below. We will see Johnny, the varnish is still slightly tacky so I am leaving alone for now. The next colour on will be Alcad2 Polished Aluminium. Thanks @elger, @cobraleader, @Hamden and @Dr. Quack. Well , as I said to @The Spadgent the varnish is still tacky so I am leaving the masking until late on, maybe tomorrow. So I did a few little bits. The rudder, still got a blob, damn. But not this side though. Landing flaps also got a second coat after being given a quick rub down. And the U/C legs got a dab of silver. Not happy about that but will wait to see when dry. That`s about for now. Stay safe. Simon.
