    Can't believe I've done it again!

    I did that with a Corsair just last week. My story is, "I decided to build it clean" and I'm sticking to it!
  2. Despite the trials and tribulations you appear to have beaten it into submission quite handily. Love the prose, too...Oscar Wilde meets Stephen King!
  3. Cool idea, nice builds and lovely backstory. Takes me back to about 1965 when my Dad took me to Biggin Hill to see a Lanc and a Hurri. Got a high-speed show from a Hunter, too, if I remember correctly.

    Old kits are OK.

    Nothing showing and your links only sent me to the Flikr home page. Maybe give it another whack... Sometimes it gets a bit cranky.
  5. I believe it involves making a deal with the devil!

    Mosquito PRIV

    Nice one. Don't often see them without the camo. That solid grey makes it look even sleeker, like an air racer. Just out of curiosity, why no squadron letters?
  7. Even the loo? Blimey, mate, where's the pilots tea mug? I've said it before and I'll say it again.... You ain't human!

    Looks to me like he had no choice, though, it sitting on a compound curve like that. Surely it's "polarised" so to speak and can only go that way up?

    Very nice indeed. And there's nothing wrong with your English! Let's see more, please.
  10. I don't know... It's no longer than the drive shaft of a Ford F600.
  11. Scratch built? I give up. Maybe I'll try macrame. Another California Cracker, Mr Moa. And another oddball... It looks like a model of a model, like the original subject was an old Kiel Kraft or somesuch rubber-powered semi-scale job about thirty inches in wingspan rather than an actual, operational aircraft.
  12. I realise this is an old thread but I've not bumped into it before... Thanks for the look into your splendid Aladdin's Cave. (Your wife must have a very good sense of humour!)
  13. Don't despair, Mr Gruntfuttock, we still have Just A Minute and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue so all is not completely lost! And Mr Moa, another beauty (that also appeals to my sense of the oddball).
  14. Great stuff. I've got to stop looking at the dioramas... The detail blows me away. I practically break my arm patting myself on the back if I can get a seat cushion painted without smudging all over the frame.
