  1. I know what you mean John, my memory can be shot at times LOL. But the notes added does help others. Keep up the good work sir. Simon.
  2. Excellent work Giorgio, for ever looking at refining those little details. Simon.
  3. I have just read through this thread John and have to say what a delightful read. She looks great too. Simon.
  4. Thanks @ModelingEdmontonian and @Hamden. A few rough spots were soon erased with the trusty sanding block before another coat. Leave again to dry before masking up for the Dark Green. Stay safe. Simon.
  5. One very very very nice Mustang you have built there Giorgio. Well worthy of placing in a museum. Big pat on the back for this one mate. Simon.
  6. Thank you sir, she has had its faults (caused by me) but she is getting there. Not as smooth as it looked, there was some rough spots that needed a swipe with a buffing pad. They always look better with a splash of paint on them. Thanks @ModelingEdmontonian, @dogsbody, @shortCummins, @john-w and @Hamden. Undersides masked. Then laid down some Dark Earth. Leave to dry before proceeding any further. Stay safe. Simon.
  7. A nun walks into Mother Superior's office and plunks down into a chair. She lets out a sigh heavy with frustration. 'What troubles you, Sister?' asked the Mother Superior .. 'I thought this was the day you spent with your family.' 'It was,' sighed the Sister. 'And I went to play golf with my brother. We try to play golf as often as we can. You know I was quite a talented golfer before I devoted my life to Christ.' 'I seem to recall that,' the Mother Superior agreed. 'So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?' 'Far from it,' snorted the Sister. 'In fact, I even took the Lord's name in vain today!' 'Goodness, Sister!' gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. 'You must tell me all about it!' 'Well, we were on the fifth tee...and this hole is a monster, Mother Superior - 540 yard Par 5, with a nasty dog leg left and a hidden green....and I hit the drive of my life. I creamed it. The sweetest swing I ever made. And it's flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted...and it hits a bird in mid-flight !' 'Oh my!' commiserated the Mother. 'How unfortunate! But surely that didn't make you blaspheme, Sister!' 'No, that wasn't it,' admitted Sister. 'While I was still trying to fathom what had happened, this squirrel runs out of the woods, grabs my ball and runs off down the fairway!' 'Oh, that would have made me blaspheme!' sympathized the Mother. 'But I didn't, Mother!' sobbed the Sister. 'And I was so proud of myself! And while I was pondering whether this was a sign from God, this hawk swoops out of the sky and grabs the squirrel and flies off, with my ball still clutched in his paws!' 'So that's when you cursed,' said the Mother with a knowing smile. 'Nope, that wasn't it either,' cried the Sister, anguished, 'because as the hawk started to fly out of sight, the squirrel started struggling, and the hawk dropped him right there on the green, and the ball popped out of his paws and rolled to about 18 inches from the cup!' Mother Superior sat back in her chair, folded her arms across her chest, fixed the Sister with a baleful stare and said... 'You missed the f'n putt, didn't you?' Simon.
  8. OK, no messing about, on with the Sky XF 21. A bit blurred that one, sorry. Leave to dry before masking I suppose. Stay safe. Simon.
  9. Thanks @giemme and @Steve Coombs. Yep, paint on its way, soon. Primed. Coffee now, then some Sky I think. Stay safe. Simon.
  10. Well I hope it is, that`s what it said on the box LOL. Thanks @ModelingEdmontonian, @Hamden, @shortCummins and @AliGauld. Well, this morning I was finally able to do some modelling, namely mask and prep for priming. I am using the wheels up U/C doors as masks. Stay safe. Simon.
  11. Nice detailing there Giorgio, as per norm. Good to see her again. Stay safe. Simon.
  12. A Doctor was addressing a large audience. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?" After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake." Simon.
  13. It`s called "The Model Shop" just North of New Road Junction, not sure whether Magic Toy Box is still there though. Simon.
  14. A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water. As the bartender gives her the drink she says, “I’m on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it’s today…” The bartender says, “Well, since it’s your birthday, I’ll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.” As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, “I would like to buy you a drink, too.” The old woman says, “Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.” “Coming up,” says the bartender. As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, “I would like to buy you one, too.” The old woman says, “Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.” “Coming right up,” the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says, “Ma’am, I’m dying of curiosity, why the Scotch with only two drops of water?” The old woman replies, “Sonny, when you’re my age, you’ve learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.” Simon.
  15. After trading for 60 years the Fratton Model Centre is sadly closing at the end of the month. Fratton Model Centre is set to close after trading on the high street for over 60 years. The model shop in Fratton Road, previously known as Fratton Bargain Shop, has been open since 1957. Brian and Ann Salt are planning to retire, while intermittently attending trade shows across the country. Searches to find new owners failed to materialise. Mr Salt, who bought the shop from his father in 1995, and owned it since, said even though it was time to go despite his emotional attachment to the shop. He said: ‘I’m upset that the shop is closing, and regular customers are not going to have their source of supply for modelling materials. ‘It is a bit upsetting, and we open seven days a week so people can have what they want when they want it, What makes this a bit ironic is that they bought the Waterlooville Model Centre`s stock when it closed back last September. This means that now we have one so so model shop in Portsmouth left soon. Simon.
  16. Well folks, not a lot to report in since last here. But with just a little bit of masking left to do she is ready for priming, that`s when all the faults show up. Oil cooler, intake added landing lights plus canopy masked. Stay safe. Simon.
  17. Sally, a blonde, goes on her first camping trip. Her husband, who was a Scout Leader, was sick so she volunteered to take over for him for the weekend. She got everyone together and assigned different duties to each scout. Gabby was responsible for the food supplies, Mike would be the cook this trip, Johnnie was responsible for their maps and making up a time schedule, Tim was to decide on their events, and to fit them into Johnnie's schedule and Sally would test all their equipment before setting out. They arrived at Big Moose Mountain and everyone was excited. They arrived right on schedule and were getting ready for their first event – hiking up the mountain. But first, they wanted to get something to eat. So Sally asked Mike if he would prepare the meal and, of course, Mike said he would. About 10 minutes later he came back and told Sally, "I can't make the supper. I can't light a fire with the matches you brought." Sally replied, "I can't understand that. Those matches should be perfectly fine. I tested them all just before we left." Simon.
  18. Jolly well done Giorgio, another masterpiece created. It`s given me some ideas when I build my P 51k , soon. Looking forward to seeing her in RFI. Stay safe. Simon.
  19. Looks wonderful Tom, as you said on the final stretch. Stay safe. Simon.
  20. Oh sugar, I suppose it happens to the best of us Tony. That or spraying air brush cleaner instead of paint. All looking good from here other wise, Stay safe. Simon.
  21. A married couple at a Zoo walk past a gorilla enclosure. Says the woman: 'Mark, Do you know that gorillas are the only animals which resemble men in their behavior? Look, seeing that no one is looking, I'll expose one of my breasts 2 it & see how horny it gets just as men do.' Mary then exposes one of her breasts, and, sure enough the gorilla gets excited and grabs the bars of the enclosure as if it wanted to break free. 'See,' says the woman, 'Now, I know why you react the way you do; men can't control their animal instincts just like gorillas can't.' Says Mark: 'Now expose both breasts and let us see what happens.' The woman exposes both breasts to the gorilla and it gets very excited and is now desperately trying to escape from the enclosure. Says Mark: 'This is incredible, now, pull your skirt up, turn around and expose your bum and let us see what happens!' The woman pulls her skirt up, turns around with her bum to the gorilla, which by now ,was extremely aroused, breaks free from the enclosure, grabs the woman and starts yanking the clothes off her. The woman yells: 'Mark , what do I do now? Please, help me!' Mark replies: 'Now, tell him you have a headache and you're not in mood ... Let us see if Gorillas and Men are the same.. Simon.
  22. Gary Brooker, pianist and vocalist with Procul Harem has died aged 76. I had the great joy of working with him on several occasions and all I can say is that he was a very lovely person to work with. I have a personally signed copy of "Salty Dog" in my collection and think that I will have to give a spin. RIP Gary. Simon.
  23. All the best Sir, I hope it all goes well. Simon.
  24. Looking forward to the pics Giorgio. Nice save by the sounds of it. Simon.
