    Revell Handley Page Halifax Mk.III

    I'm still trying to decide if I like it or not.

    Looks like a decision has been made. My model building shipmate has just told me he has a 1/48 Hasegawa Skyhawk to build next trip so I'll take my Hobby Boss version back. Does two people constitute a group build? Apparently there's a few issues with the kit but my head will be buried in the sand it it'll be built out of the box. Now if you had said Lego it would have been a bit more sensible.

    I'm not entirely sure what's going to be next Stuart. The Halifax was always intended to be a relatively slow build with no time limit for completion. I've got a small stash of aircraft I'm enthusiastic about building but I'm a bit indecisive which will be next. Next trip at sea's project is going to be something pretty simple as I expect the weather won't be that great in January, maybe a jet.

    Short Jokes III - Worst in the Series

    I've got my wife an artificial leg for Christmas, it's not her main present, just a stocking filler.

    Scott, Chris, thank you both very much. All information is gratefully received. Just for interest today 427 Sqn report.... 14/12/43 Weather: General fog persisting with calm conditions. In one of the thickest fogs which we have yet experienced, the environs of Leeming were engulfed in a "pea-souper" which curtailed all unnecessary Talking, let alone, all flying for the day; the fog persisting throughout the day and far into the morning. It's 0630 here and I'm just in from taking my youngest daughter to work, in the environs of Leeming it's calm, clear with a slight frost. Good day for Halifax work.

    Update time. I've got a thin coat of Mr Finishing Surfacer 1500 on the main assembly. The plan is to to spray some highlights on tomorrow before spraying the actual paint scheme.

    Thanks Mike. I need to get some of that, the last time I looked I bought satin as there was no Matt. Is this a wind up or a wind up?

    Good afternoon Paul. Thanks very much, slight correction, 3 x 1/72 but one hasn't been shown here yet. I'll keep you in suspense for the time being. I'd love a stab at the 1/24 but I'm having problems displaying what I already have and with a Halifax in progress and another Whitley queuing it's not going to get any better. TEEP? What's that and should I Google it? I have some micromesh in that range, thanks, I'll get rubbing!!!! (Gently).

    Thank you Dennis. White denotes inert practice bombs. I seem to remember practice bombs could be filled to produce smoke or a flash so crews could observe where they had landed so perhaps inert is incorrect?
