  1. I’ve not had any ax to grind or sure what the previous history has been but am surprised at the turn this has taken. If soliciting donations with Britmodeller as a non-profit org within the UK aren’t there legal standards and best practices you could point people toward as being in line with? If, as in this thread, donors or prospective donors ask questions isn’t there a duty from the fundraiser regulator to avoid ambiguity in answering?
  2. This is were I had gotten to by close of play yesterday Will resurrect when I’m less knackered
  3. Probably, yes - I can get so far with the P roundels but later types would need those different options for A&AEE etc.
  4. My wishlist and general direction is in this thread More in the direction of things which haven’t been kitted elsewhere
  5. I’d certainly be interested - have been doing some 3D printing of such research machines at 1/72 and being able to coordinate the decals would be useful
  6. Erm... that last push is going to be postponed. Not feeling great today so will pack everything away and come back to it when I feel a bit more myself
  7. Calling it a day with some paint starting to go on. One last push tomorrow https://flic.kr/p/2jBAGxF
  8. Not looking likely that I’ll get the Lightning done - a bit of a fight on my hands with the Shack today with motors needing drilled out to fit the prop shafts and some distortion of the parts. I hope to live up to the high standards of historical accuracy set by the box designer Some jiggery-pokery today trying to paint the white section, prime other bits and fill others. Constrained time is meaning any bit that isn’t drying is fair game for other work to happen
  9. A 3D printed version of this one (in addition to the F-106 kit in the stash) was my thinking.
  10. *With the big caveat that this isn’t professional advice* Probably about on a par - I’d treat both with respect and minimise my exposure with a solvent capable mask, good ventilation and gloves. The printing resins aren’t a million miles away from those you’ve had cure in your mouth if you’ve had white UV curable dental fillings but you’d not want to have a few of those a week. Modellers tend to be a bit lax about 2k PU resins and materials. Isocyanates etc. I tend to treat them with much more caution than most both because my Dad spent years happily model making in sheds surrounded by balsa dust, cyanoacrylates etc. and dismissing concerns about ventilation but now has absolutely knackered lungs & very limited life expectancy.
  11. Just to note that simple evaporation can be harmful for some materials without needing them to be aerosols and that even short individual exposures can add up to cause cumulative harm and sensitisation. I’d absolutely err on the side of caution
  12. This thread is written by an expert in the field and links to safety advice
  13. It'd certainly make the UK half billion investment in that OneWeb satellite internet company a bit more explicable if it were a global reach, multiply redundant, high bandwidth comms for this kind of thing
  14. Pretty much the same argument is made about replacing Trident and the jobs it'll create/protect - we'd save a lot of money by just paying off every worker with a generous gold plated lifetime pension to keep schtum and just say we built the thing but it is very very stealthy
