  1. Thanks so much. The Lightning is a highlight of the year for me. Everything just worked. This is part of the reason I gave it this particular scheme. He absolutely fell head over heels in love. Sat in the Vulcan Bang Seat beside her and just stared for ages. East Fortune is one of my favourite days out. It's a wee gem. Cheers, Alistair
  2. My thoughts exactly. Cheers, Alistair
  3. Hi Jason, I left the wings until later as I was thinking about photoetch flaps but have decided against them so have pushed forward with them. I kind of followed the instruction sequence at first. We'll end up roughly he same though. Cheers, Alistair
  4. Today I finished off the fuselage masking. The Radome was fitted, if you can call it a fit. On perusal of walkround pictures the join between the Radome and the fuselage was quite visible, so I put some Mr. Surfacer on and a short time later nipped off the excess with a cotton bud and Self-Levelling Thinner. When I got back from shopping i gave everything a very diluted spray of paint. I
  5. Thanks so much. Cheers, Alistair
  6. Got to be buttered what is a chin for. Cheers, Alistair
  7. Hi Chris, Thanks very much. It's starting to get there. Cheers, Alistair
  8. I've fancied this kit for a while so I'll hop on board if that's alright. Cheers, Alistair
  9. Sorry, there's very little to update today. Some clear bits glued and masked, some Maskol applied and some more fiddly photoetch applied. I feel like I've done nothing much but been at it for ages. Time consuming stuff. This may be the last update for a few days as I'm back to work tomorrow. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  10. Hi Tony, Many Thanks, I intend to keep pushing through until the bitter end. Cheers, Alistair
  11. Not much done today. I've sanded the Mr. Surfacer back and everything feels very smooth but only paint will tell. These arrived in the post today, so no excuses any more I will need to give the photoetch flaps a go. I know that a parked Shackleton had flaps up and bay doors open, so this, if it works, will be unrealistic. But hey-ho. These also arrived so I will need to remove the digit and get the Tornado finished. Thanks for looking, Cheers, Alistair
  12. Looking really good. The undercarriage is particularly splendid. Cheers, Alistair
  13. Tamiya Thinners work perfectly well with Tamiya paints. What I usually do when I don't need a mix is fill the new bottle up to the small lip line in the glass with X-20A and give it a good shake/stir when I want to use it. Pre-thinned. Not had any problems with that method yet. Cheers, Alistair
  14. Well, I didn't want to say anything in case @The Spadgent popped in but now that he has... You're no relation to Lady MacBeth at all? Sorry I was told to mention it. Cheers, Alistair
