    No, if you want a 0.3mm, you may be able to install a 0.3mm   Sparmax needle but I haven't tried it, 


    Cheers Paul, I have a Sparmax 0.4 and not bad as I said, plus a couple of 0.3 Chinese copies which are seeing their limitations but will have to wait a while until I can gather enough pocket money .

    If the Mrs lets me.


    Once again thank you for your prompt reply.



  2. OK, time to take the tape off and see what a mess I have made of things.


    From above, does not look that bad.




    Port side too.




    Nor starboard.




    Tail end, could be better.




    Need to adjust the starboard anti glare a bit, to straight.




    Port wing needs a little bit doing to it.




    Starboard not bad.




    This looks ugly.




    A touch up her I can see.




    And here too.




    And here.




    And here too.


    Well I am happy in some respects annoyed with myself on others.


    I am going to leave alone for today and see what I can do over the next few days.


    Stay safe.

    I would hazard they turned out very nicely.

    Good luck with the rest.




    Thanks Alistair, I am concerned about the bigger ones though.

    Painting the stripes- way to go! :clap:


    Decals on the prop look good to me too, Simon :clap:



    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.

  4. 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.





  5. 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.

    That's a serious amount of masking.

    Good luck with the spraying.






    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.

    Looking rather nice.

    Great save on the rough bit and the fingerprints.

    The re-spray looks very effective, Simon :clap:



    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.

  8. 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.”

    A very nice “Silver Machine” 🪙🐎

    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.

  10. 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!".
