  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
  15. Is this some kind of 1950's term for a back seat fumble? I mean... I like my stash as much as the next man but that is taking it a bit far
  16. “Shhhhh! There’s still 2 or 3 days charge on that. Where’s the harm?” he typed on a phone on its knackered 2nd replacement battery showing 29% and falling rapidly.
  17. Clever would assume I actually get them done without making a mess of either. Let’s see how it goes by Monday. As it stands at end of play today Now to make dinner (pizza, sweet potato fries and salad) & catch the highlights of the Kilmarnock game
  18. I’m going to have a bloody good go at the Lightning as well. Shack is mainly together and I’ve stopped for the day so I’ll do some filling when I start again first tomorrow then turn my attentions Lightningwards. Hopefully get them both done with the Bank Holiday Monday
  19. A bit of an attritional slow stage in today’s day 1 of the TdF but the Shack is going apace Minestrone with an instruction sheet tablecloth Cockpit was devoid of details so I’ve scrabbled about in the decal spares and busied up the dash before sticking the sides together Not glued the flying surfaces on yet but looking something like a (very large) plane
  20. Looks like they got the better of today’s weather
  21. Sub assemblies going ok, finale of the cycle race was a corker Short intermission to make some minestrone soup for lunch and fish about in the spares box looking for flat transparencies to cut down to replace a couple of missing pieces (don’t you just love old kits)
  22. Reminds me of the graphics in the Gameboy Advance Wars game series (turn based battle strategy) - nice!
  23. Already run into that issue with mine. Short break to check other builds and rummage in the spares box for some flat transparent bits to fettle into shape
  24. Back at the bench armed with coffee and some fresh chocolate chip and hazelnut cookies. La Course cycle race running on the laptop beside me so my Saturday looks set up nicely
