  1. I'm probably going to have to do the same and switch to Gmail. Problem is I don't tend to normally use it much and my notifications are prioritised for Outlook. I know I can reset everything but it's just annoying. Outlook Support have been very poor over this.
  2. Wow! Looks like you are making good progress already! Kind regards, Stix
  3. Go on.........you can admit how many times you fell asleep! Hope it was useful. Hi Nigel. Thank you and I will try not to splatter you with too much paint! Hi Craig and thank you. The L version is a lovely kit to build - I think you will enjoy it. I made one a few years back in one of the MTO GBs. It goes together very well and looks the part when completed. So....this is what's in the box for this project: A few closer views: Small decal sheet: Sample of the instructions: And I have made a bit of a start. These are the parts I'm using first and the plastic bits and bobs have all been cleaned up - seam lines removed, etc.: Some assembly done: Then I started some painting!! Thinned, with water, Humbrol 93 - Desert Yellow - applied with a medium flat brush. This is after a couple of coats: It might be a while before another update as I need to do some more work on another project in the BoB GB. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
  4. Thank you very much Giorgio. Hope you are keeping well. Cheers Ozzy! Hi Charlie. that is very kind of you to say. Hi Nigel and thank you for your, as always, very kind comments. Hi Greg and thank you. Your Hurricane looks superb in the gallery. Well done. I suppose that's one of the benifits of painting the camo freehand with brushes - no masking involved! Hi Cookie. Hope you are keeping well and thank you for your kind comment. Well! Yes, I know I keep saying this but, time has been getting away from me again. I had intended to post some updates over the weekend but didn't get chance. Once again I have been finding the odd bit of time to work on this - plus start another build in the MTO GB! All of the time I spent on this over the past week or so was on the decals. Here you can see they have been applied and been given a couple of coats of Pledge - the newer version of Klear. As I usually do - where I could - I cut the decals as close to the printed design as I can - to try and minimise any silvering from the clear carrier film. They mostly went on okay - I only had to use some Humbrol Decalfix in a couple of places to get them to settle better onto the detail: For the fuselage codes I cut up the original Airfix decals and replaced the fuselage roundels with some I had in the spares box. Thanks to @Troy Smith's advice and @patmaquette getting there first - I was able to get the code letters in the right order on the starboard side. Next I need to add a bit more light weathering in places before getting some Matt Varnish applied. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
  5. Hi Dennis. Hope you are keeping well. Your Hurricane looks superb!! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  6. Hi Ozzy. Hope you are keeping well. Got to agree with the others - it looks superb in the gallery! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  7. Hi Nigel. Hope you are well. Wow! You are making quick and excellent work of your Hurricane!! It looks superb in its camo! Kind regards, Stix
  8. Absolutely superb Hurricane Greg! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  9. I am beginning to think Microsoft are not going to be able to sort this out. Not a major issue at the moment but I'm hosting GBs in a couple of months and the notifications are a good way to keep up with what's going on. Oh well.. ..
  10. Superb results Ray. Fantastic looking Hurricane! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  11. Absolutely stunning Spitfires Dave! Awesome modelling! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  12. Weirdly, Outlook Mobile Support got in touch again this evening asking if my problem had been resolved and asked me to do couple of things - neither of which made any difference. I don't have much faith in them being able to resolve this issue. Hey ho....
