  1. She's a beauty mate, nice work Cheers, Stew
  2. Looking good Alistair, but I fear perhaps you better brace yourself to never see that interior again once you close up the fuselage Cheers, Stew
  3. Rob, I recommend you squeeze your blob of superglue onto a) an upturned milk container top or b) the underside of the aluminium foil case of a used tealight, saves you getting dried lumps of superglue all over your cutting mat Cheers, Stew
  4. Good stuff Johnny Back in the 70's my uncle had a couple of radio-controlled cars; not this one, indeed I'm not even sure they were Tamiya's. He bought one round one weekend and raced it up and down the farm track next to our house. And that's how he learned that Jack Russell Terriers will chase and kill anything Cheers, Stew
  5. That looks great Crisp, but it looks like fiddly work, how long has each section taken you? Cheers, Stew
  6. I've had a couple of those in the last couple of weeks (I live on the top floor of a tenement); my Dad always said that they were Queen Wasps looking for a new nest site, though what knowledge he really had of pancrustacean hexapod invertebrates generally I'm not sure - suffice it to say with the use of chemical weapons the two that visited me were dispatched pretty damn quick That's a rare bird these days, good haul mate Cheers, Stew

    Covid Jab

    When I got mine last Saturday the nurse specifically said that as I was getting Pfizer this time, I'd be getting it next time too - I don't think they mix and match Cheers, Stew
  8. Thank you gents The Blu-Tack wheeze is particularly helpful with the ICM CR.42 (or indeed the Gladiator variants they produce) as the struts don't attach to the wing with the usual 'peg and hole' attachment points but with recesses in the wings the same shape as the tops, or bottoms, of the struts. I do prefer to use poly cement for this sort of thing when I can, as much as anything for the increased adjustment time that it allows if required. On Saturday @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies was kind enough to swing by on his way to Perth with a couple of sets of masks for the code numbers
  9. Click on the dropdown arrow next to your name on the bar at the top right of the screen, choose "Account settings" from the menu, then click on "Edit profile" at the right-hand side of the screen: the top box on the next menu is "Member title" and you can put what you want in there, within reason, of course It's not as complicated as I may have made it sound... Cheers, Stew
  10. I did find a few jobs to do yesterday; first, adding the cowl flaps and masking the yellow portion of the cowling: I know I said I prefer my kits 'buttoned up' but the cowl flaps are the one area where I always seem to make an exception... I don't know, it's a weakness, but a harmless one I also plugged the strut-attachment recesses in the underside of the upper wing with Blu-Tack, to save myself having to scrape the paint off and allow the use of poly cement to attach the struts when the time comes: As the squadron commander, Edu
  11. I was thinking the same thing Grzegorz, also I think for the Balkans campaign, weren't yellow cowlings and rudders used as theatre/tactical markings? Also, much as I hate to be that grammar pedant: "New Stuka bears its teeth" Oh, Airfix Cheers, Stew
  12. Looking good Alistair Hope the aches and pains subside enough to get the paint on for the weekend Cheers, Stew
  13. Beautiful ... and so shiny! You did well not to get your reflection in every picture giving the scale away Cheers, Stew
  14. Indeed, there is some fabric-effect detail along the area in question, but I hope not enough to interfere with the adherence and conformity of the masks; at least it's not rivetty aye, there's the rub Thanks, Jamie, for attempting the colour match for me After a moment's consideration I realised I wanted a blue to match the blue on the kits squadron badge decal, as I don't feel it within my grasp to repaint the blue area of the badge to match the codes. Fortunately it seems no-one at present can say for sure what the shade of blue originally used was beyo
