  1. Very nice work so far Bob. Now I've caught up you can carry on with updates.... either here or out the front when I'm watching the wife gardening.
  2. Thank you! The penny's just dropped re. the black nose. I think I've got my JA's mixed up with my AJ's.
  3. Thank you Werner. It's 1/72, I actually thought I'd put that in the title, obviously not. As for the black nose, maybe I made a mistake.
  4. This trips project completed, it must be almost time to go home. Speaking of which that's when the pitot tube will be added. I can't see that surviving the journey intact.
  5. It's standing on It's own two (five?) feet now. Not far to go.
  6. Adam, for half of the year I do my modelling on a ship in the North Sea. The only thing I have with me which isn't on your list is cotton buds and cocktail sticks. This is the little compressor I bring with me.
  7. Thanks Steve. One day I'll do a 1/48 Viggen in splinter camo.... but not yet.
  8. Thanks Terry. I don't know if this particular aircraft looked like that but I found a photo online of a close relative that did so went with that because it looked interesting.
  9. Thank you. Yes, time. That is a bit of a problem, I know exactly what you mean.
  10. Thank you Terry. I think the intake solution was more luck than judgment but it worked. This is where I am now. You can probably see some PVA on the bottom edge of the canopy. I did two dry test fittings prior to committing to superglue and they were both a perfect fit. You can guess the rest.
  11. Thank you. Apart from the intakes it's been pretty much plain sailing. I'm sure you'll enjoy yours when you get round to them.
  12. Angles of Attack, An A-6 Intruder Pilot's War. £7.55 on Kindle + £38 for the inevitable Hobby Boss A-6E TRAM Intruder.
  13. Thank you both very much. Another update will hopefully follow later today.
  14. Here's me thinking it was the ships WiFi to blame. Glad I didn't complain to the IT Dept. ashore.
  15. Thanks very much. I'll check that anti collision light out, I can't remember if there's one or not. I usually leave that kind of thing to near the end. Update time, upper surfaces painted, I've tried to get a bit of subtle variation on some of the panels which may or may not show up on the photos.
  16. @LOX @exdraken Thank you both very much. Getting some paint down now. The underside has had a coat of Mr Color C11. Prior to this the whole model received a base coat of Mr Color C137, Tire Black. No particular reason for it being Tire Black it's just that it was the darkest colour I have the most of with me.
  17. Thanks Christer. You've never built a Viggen? Nooooo. This is how it's looking at the moment.
  18. Not exactly over my house but my daughter sent me this, (I'm at work). An Osprey flying over Middleham Moor, North Yorkshire.
  19. Forwarned by @drake122 about the problem fitting the intakes I decided to skip ahead and take the bull by the horns. The problem, that will not fit where it is supposed to.... Problem solved with the aid of a sanding stick... Superglued into position, a tiny bit of filler and a sand. It still needs a bit more tidying up but I think that problem is solved, now the airbrakes.
  20. I thought it was going too well, thanks for the heads up. I'll try and do what I can in those problem areas.
  21. I'd better explain what appears to be a random spraying of black. Because the light isn't that great in here I sprayed the cockpit walls black before spraying them grey so I could see what was doing.
