  1. Hello Giorgio. As the Germans like to put every english phrase or anglicism into their german language so why don't we vice versa. We have the right words for that: 1. Kater (male cat) 2. Dicke Birne 3. Schwerer Kopf 4. Brummschädel Mostly used after night of drinking, but also for everything else that went wrong in the head temporarily. So if that helps, you could say:" After my first vaccination I now have a dicke Birne. () Cheers PS: This works also in italian speech.
  2. Yep Tony, if you need a break, take another ride. Nothing is more worse than thinking "I have to do i't, because I must. Ahh, but it pains me yet again." It won't bring you the result you want to achieve. And other things can be fun and satisfy you till you get the mojo and lust back for modelling. All comes and goes in seasons. I can wait for the next HQ update. Cheers
  3. Yep Ced, you cannot begin to learn early enough! I expect some RFI's later this evening? Cheers
  4. Hello, in the late 70' in my former hometown, which was a small town, we had no real hobby shop. Only two or three household stores that had also model kits. a real one was in the next bigger city, which was 20 km away. Strangely enough as in my town there were only Airfix and Matchbox kits available and in one also Monogram ones. You could get Revell only in the city although the Revell of Germany plant in B√ľnde near Bielefeld was only 70km away. Airfix were about 900km away, Matchbox 650 km and Monogram 6800 km Cheers
  5. Hello, I'm also in for this one. First saw it with nine in my old Matchbox catalogue, but never built one. Only a B-17, ,a Lanc and the Halifax of the brown series, but that is long ago. The resin also looks very promising. This will be a nice addition to your great looking PB4Y-1. Cheers
  6. Hello Rob I'm in for both. Yep the side windows are an option but you have to cut them out in the staggered position. The engine cowlings look bad as the lack of the wheel bay details If you choose vacu clear parts, this could be of interest Not sure, if they produce it now: https://www.scalemates.com/de/kits/legend-productions-la7201-b-17f-interior-detail-set-academy-kit--406077. Cheers
  7. As above G. Nice work. Try and error will fix it and do in the end, I guess. Cheers
  8. Hopefully Ced, The main fire station is only 800 m away from my home. Maybe I should search there.... Btw I like the old ones of the 70-80 most in their simple classic fire red paint as well as the old german police cars in the fir/mint (later) green-white or just white colour. https://abload.de/img/img_225067eu.jpg https://abload.de/img/img_2238h78t.jpg Nice work with the fiddly ecthed thingies, but I know you will have the right tools for that. Masking looks also great. Cheers
  9. Nice to see it closed now Ced and a nice masking start. Also good to see the clear part reappeared. Mostly I don't have that luck and I'm a master of mislaying blue flashlights of my diecasts. Wherever they may go, when they ping away. Cheers
  10. Yep indeed, but I fear more the completely missing lower jaws flying around, if their heads don't fit to their helmets.
  11. Damn fine job of you all! Very fine looking one in red and black and a very nice diorama too. Cheers.
  12. Hello Ced,, no need to curse. I would have left them out anyway as they look fine on the macro and wouldn't be seen anyway. So, fine spare parts for other less detailed kits, where they would be more visible. Nice work on the turrets with a good metallic finish. Cheers
  13. Yes Ced, but I must admit that I feel a bit scared to see you work as a dentist. Especically when you get the right elan for a proper job during your work. Cheers
  14. Hello G. Of course I'm in for this. The good old Nato Diesel looks pretty cool in almost every scheme. Yep and the right and essential goodies for the old but reliable Hase kit and furthermore I'm very keen to see the a build of that Fine Mold kit. Cheers
