  1. I've lost count of how many I've got on the go but I do agree with the post above, too many on the go becomes overwhelming. I find i can manage what I've got by making a list and prioritising what I want to finish, doesn't help being a slow builder either. Oh, and then if there happens to be some nice shiny new kit appear, that always throws a spanner in the works too! Eng
  2. Couple of quick pics of this beauty. Some lovely surface detail and panel/rivet lines match up nicely across the fuselage join. From my first look I can highly recommend this one. Eng
  3. Evening all, The Pave Hawk is now slowly becoming more widely available and via a well known auction site I've now, finally, got a Pave Hawk in my grubby mitts. Its a rather impressive kit indeed, not to mention rather big! Eng
  4. Thats absolutely superb Al, one of my fave light aircraft and in Euro One came... even better. I've been sorely tempted by this kit in the past, this is further temptation!! Nice one, Eng
  5. Good Afternoon, I can help you out here! Can you please DM me some contact details please. Eng
  6. https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/kh/kit_kh_50006.shtml Quick review up here for anyone who's interested in the Pave Hawk Eng
  7. Any sign of a release date for the HH-60G? Could still be tempted by one of these but seems to have all gone quiet. Eng
  8. Morning folks, Very strangely, and totally out of the blue I received an envelope this morning containing a hand written letter from Martin Garrett apologising for the delay in sending decals I had ordered a long while back, and that this had been due to ongoing family health issues. The letter was very polite and sincere, and the decals were included. Eng
  9. Looking at the pics above and the photo in the previous comment of the Saudi jet, I would say those guards could be fitted with the probe in the deployed position. We use FOD/Run guards when carrying out runs on the A319/320/321 at work, but ours are basically large wheeled cages that sit round the front of the inlet, the back edge of the cage has a cutout that the nose of the inlet sits inside and there's a clearance of about 6-9 inches around this to allow for the aircraft shaking around during the runs. Eng
  10. In terms of what happens next to the aircraft there will be a very thorough clean up and a whole raft of inspections and checks carried out to the engines and airframe a laid out in Chapter 5 of the aircraft maintenance manual. Its not impossible for birds to pass clean through an engine and leave absolutely no trace of damage whatsoever, I've seen this more than once, but something the size of gulls are at minimum have bent a few fan blades if not worse. If the bird has gone through the core of the engine and not just down the bypass duct then there will be a requirement for horoscope inspections to check the various stages of LP and HP compressor. Again the AMM will lay down very specific and clear limits for quantity of blades damaged and size of damage. Oh and as has been pointed out already the smell that disassembled gulls leave in a hot engine is something that will turn the strongest of stomach's! Eng
  11. Not experienced this personally but looks like the Tamiya Thinners may have reacted with the Klear I personally only ever use Humbrol Acrylic rattle cans for the final varnish coats, I know that doesn't help here but might be worth trying next time round. Don't bin the kit though. Rub it back and have another go at it, I've got a couple of spare Revell GR.1 decals sheets if you want one. Eng
