  1. No worries, No need for apologies either. I do use enamels but Colourcoats thinners speeds up the drying time. Cheers, Alistair
  2. Thanks Bertie but I use an airbrush, can't use a brush to save myself. Cheers, Alistair
  3. Thanks for the kind offer Chris. It's not the rigging that's the main problem. It's trying to get a decent fit on the Starboard Wing. If I can get something tomorrow I'll carry on but if not then i might just leave it and think about it later. I had thought of making it a wingfold on the Starboard side but looking at the joints i would never get the bits out without destroting plastic. Cheers, Alistair
  4. I think that's it, The PVA can cure overnight and I'll get some prettier shots tomorrow. Thanks for looking, Many thanks to Tony OD and Col for hosting this one. Cheers, Alistair
  5. Excellent work there. Looking rather good. Cheers, Alistair
  6. Ah but the bits are all painted and ready to go. The longest wait is for the Satin Coat to dry. Cheers, Alistair
  7. Getting closer, I feel. So, after a protective clear coat a light Flory Dark Dirt wash and some oil dot filtering was applied. The majority of the undercarriage was assembled and she's on her feet. Still to do. Final undercarriage parts and rear wheel doors. Whip Aerial, Flaps, Light weather to undercarriage, wheel wells and flaps. Final satin coat. Unmask canopy and Camera Port. Krystal Klear to Camera Port. Fit Nav Lights. Not to much to do. If I can extract the digit I may get it done today. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  8. Thanks Niall, I'll give it a go but everything I've tried so far has just made the matter worse. Not ruling anything out though. With a clearer mind tomorrow I may come up with a plan. Thanks Craig, I've put the thing through in the bedroom just so it's not staring at me. I'll see what i can do but It's not looking good at the moment. Cheers, Alistair
  9. A wee update. This could be headed for the bin. I spent 4 hours yesterday and 3 hours this morning trying to get an acceptable fit on the starboard wing and am finding it impossible. The wing spar broke when the cat sat on it in the box a couple of months ago and there is also a twist in the wings that is entirely my own fault. It's currently sitting on top of a cabinet in my bedroom with the top wing affixed with resin glue in the hope that this will be strong enough to allow me to correct the twist when gluing the bottom wing. If that works then I have a lot of work to sort the bent rigging and the various bit of PE that broke off during my struggles. I'll give an update tomorrow but at the moment I've really lost interest. Cheers, Alistair
  10. You're more than welcome. If anyone learns anything from this then I'm chuffed. Thanks very much Chris, both for your kind comments and very generous offer. I got the remaining rigging on yesterday and painted the locking handles red. I'm just waiting for the weather to die down a tad and I'll get a matt coat done on them. Edit: But as this has just arrived I may have some listening to do. Cheers, Alistair
  11. Looking really good. Don't listen to the above Philistine, there's nothing wrong with leaving the big stuff for future you. Cheers, Alistair
  12. Very fine work. I'm really enjoying seeing this come together. Cheers, Alistair
  13. Andy, If you're looking for a ready mix for anything in the future Colourcoats Buff is what I use. Apologies for the drift, Normal service may resume now. Cheers, Alistair
