    Is anybody alive in here? Is anybody at all in here? Nobody but us in here Nobody but us. ((c) Sting, I think)

    Very nice forest! Kirk (Apologies Håkan - it's just my silly sense of humour. I struggle to find anything more to say about Vitaliy's splendid build other than "More of what Håkan just said".)

    Looking great!

    Maybe, but I'm willing to bet he can't build a decent Tornado for toffee! Kirk
  5. Fantastic hijack Chewy. Great explanation, and I just about followed the maths. Three cheers for engineering. Hip hip...
  6. Good luck. And thanks for the info. I clearly need to go to the bottom of the class and do much more revision as I didn't even realise that the Rotodyne was mostly an autogyro... I'll follow the YouTube documentary link when i get a mo! Kirk
  7. I'm enjoying this tremendously too - particularly the distinct lack of faffing. To drift a little off the topic of the build, what was the physics behind the ram jets on the rotor tips? Presumably, the rotor is limited aerodynamically to subsonic speeds (I half read something complicated about rotor blade motion by John Farley once...) so does all the complex plumbing offer efficiency advantages or what? Confused of Hove (actually)

    Looks very good! Kirk
  9. Auxiliary intake doors if we're being precise. They allow the Pegasus to get enough breath when it's not moving forward fast enough for the big holes to do the trick. Nice idea for a diorama, by the way. Very sad sight though.... They're supposed to be sat in commandeered supermarkets waiting to do the thing they do when all the runways have rendered all the other fast jets useless. Ah well.
  10. You're welcome. After all, this is a fantastic model and your skills are awesome - so we can all wait as long as it takes until service is resumed...
  11. Good to see this back on the bench Hugo.

    Each pit you make gets better and better. This looks fab. Are the side consoles really just decals? Kirk

    No problem Vitaliy - I'll take a look. One that is for certain is that one of the T-shaped pins is from the ejection loop handle - I'll try and find a list of the others. Kirk

    Vitaliy, don't forget that the number of pins present in the block of safety pins on the right hand canopy frame will be determined by the state of the aircraft. They are only ALL found there when the aircraft has a pilot in the seat and the engine is running. If "safe for parking", the canopy detonation pin would be in the manual detonation handle rather than in the block. I can't remember what every pin is (I think most are from the seat) but I may have a note somewhere if you would like me to check. I think this is the first time I've ever seen anyone include this detail on a model... Kirk
