  1. The Typhoon is looking great Giorgio, and more useful build advice as always. Stay cool my friend.
  2. An airventure indeed. Great stuff as always PC, glad you all made it there (and back). The Lancaster is looking awesome, the turrets alone are worthy of their own build thread, complete with fraught tales of the Mighty Procopius.
  3. Another worthy addition to the ceiling Ced!
  4. That looks amazing Bill, two icons in one build: Spitfire and Merlin.
  5. So sorry to hear about your Dad Bill, condolences to you and your family.
  6. Amazing pics Rob, glad you had a wonderful time on Malta, and nice to see you back at the Spitfires.
  7. The string incident was worth it, if only to catch another glimpse of your office ceiling Ced, one of the top aviation attractions in existence. I'm planning a trip just to see it - I mean Telford will be nice too.
  8. That's lovely Rob, and I'm stealing your recipe for painting the exhausts, and the use of blu-tack on the tip of the props.
  9. Bah! I've never seen Future clump like that, and mine has sat in the desert for quite a while (it does tend to get a little cloudy though - but still dries glossy clear). Phooey, that's a bummer Ced; thinner recipe addendum duly noted. The glossy black turned out fantastic though. Oh, wholeheartedly agree with water based acrylics working just fine over fully cured enamels - I often use enamels thinned with white spirit as a primer and paint water based acrylics over it. I always wait 24 hours or more between the two though, just in case.
  10. I've never managed to spray Humbrol acrylic successfully, but I know that the mighty @Procopius has, perhaps he has a trick or two to share.
  11. Malta quinfecta! Fantastic Rob, they even had the good sense to name the Spitfire 'Rob'.
