  1. Great work Giorgio, nice mod on the drop tanks. And you are right, some P.E. does not look right. Stay safe. Simon.
  2. Abe and Esther are flying to Australia for a two-week vacation to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces, “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning and we will attempt an emergency landing. “ “Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach. However, the odds are that we may never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives!” Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane lands safely on the island. An hour later Abe turns to his wife and asks, “Esther, did we pay our $5,000 PBS pledge check yet?” “No, sweetheart,” she responds. Abe, still shaken from the crash landing, then asks, “Esther, did we pay our American Express card yet?” “Oh, no! I’m sorry. I forgot to send the check,” she says. “One last thing, Esther. Did you remember to send checks for the Visa and MasterCard this month?” he asks. “Oh, forgive me, Abie,” begged Esther. “I didn’t send that one, either.” Abe grabs her and gives her the biggest kiss in 40 years. Esther pulls away and asks him, “What was that for?” Abe answers, “They’ll find us!” Simon.
  3. The boss asked Mark to start the presentation with a joke. He shared his paycheck as the first slide. Simon.
  4. Good to see that I am not the only idiot on this site. LOL. Nice work as usual Giorgio, looking forward to the next instalment. Stay safe. Simon.
  5. An old Fiat breaks down on a remote road. The driver discovers he has no signal so he can’t call for help. He decides that the only thing for it is to start walking. Just as he is heading off, a shiny new BMW stops next to him. “Hello, are you having car trouble?” The driver asks. “I’m afraid so.” The driver of the Fiat answers. “Tell you what, my car is strong enough, I’ll tow you to the nearest garage!” Says the BMW driver. The Fiat driver is overjoyed at this, and together they couple the little hatchback to the BMW using a rope. As the BMW driver gets in, the Fiat driver asks him something. “This is an old car, so please drive carefully.”. The BMW driver nods his head. “Just honk if I’m going too fast!”. With that, he gets in and they drive away. They drive for a while when suddenly a Porsche races by them. The BMW driver doesn’t like this blow to his ego, so forgetting that he has a car in tow starts chasing the Porsche. As they race down the road, they pass a farm. The farmer looks at the spectacle and walks inside. “What’s the matter with you? You look like you’ve seen a ghost,” his wife says. The farmer replies: “I just saw a BMW and Porsche racing, and an old Fiat honking to get past” Simon.

  8. Well played sir, a very nice rescue of the canopy. Damn good what you can get nowadays. Stays safe. Simon.
  9. Slowly lads but getting there. Right then, some modelling done at last! The missing part in the main wheel bay made. And then quickly painted with some XF 4. Oil cooler glued together and dry fitted. Rear cockpit rack painted. And the seat was given a coat of XF 62 Olive drab. Not worried about the roughness , there is some Mr Neo Masking fluid under it. Stay safe and cool. Simon.
  10. Smooth paintwork Alistair. BTW they are I.D. Stripes not Invasion ones. Stay safe. Simon.

  12. Thanks @giemme, @Hamden, @Biggles87, @AliGauld and @elger. Well, sorry for no posting but mojo was lacking. But today I got back on the bench and did some more. The I.P. coaming lights added and just need touching up. I.P. itself had the rudders added and ready to fitted to the coaming. Seat masked ready for some Olive Drab. And the cockpit rack/frame was readied for the same colour. Every one stay safe and cool. Simon.

  14. Just caught up Alistair, fine work. Those annoying seam marks can be a pain but you got there. Stay safe. Simon.
  15. Absolutely stunning Tony. All the above posts say it all. It has been a pleasure to watch this project unfold and a learning curve as well, all those "Black Arts". Looking forward to the next project, whatever it may be. Simon.
  16. A wealthy man and his wife are going to a function, so they decide to give the butler the night off. However, a couple of hours later the wife was bored, so she leaves the party and goes home, only to find the butler sitting alone at the table. She orders the butler upstairs to her bedroom, where she locks the door... "Jeeves," she commands, "take off my hat." Jeeves promptly obeys. "Now, Jeeves," she says, "take off my dress." He obeys. "Now, Jeeves, please remove my underwear." Breaking into a nervous sweat, Jeeves complies. "Now Jeeves," the wife says, "if I should ever catch you wearing my clothes again..." Simon.
  17. Looking good from here Giorgio. Have a great holiday mate. Stay safe. Simon.
