    RAAF Beaufighter MkIc A19-54

    Nice, but why did you paint the engine central gear casings grey? In real life, they should be black. Airfix instructs you to paint them black. Just the very tip, next to the propeller is aluminum colour. Chris

    Edmonton Airshow 2017

    It was a little cloudy but not too bad. It was my 3rd Edmonton airshow in a row. Not sure if I'll make it down this year, though. Chris
  3. Prop pitch control? Chris

  5. Thanks, General. Are you sure about the larger, top central hole being for the oil cooler? These photos shows two intake pipes mounted above the baffle plate. https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205218611 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205208736 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205209964 Chris

    Edmonton Airshow 2017

    Was that the Saturday show? I only made it down to see Sunday's show. Your pictures are great. Mine aren't close to the quality of yours. Chris

    At the glacial pace I'm at, it'll be a while before I get to the painting stage. Chris

    Dornier Do17z

    Nicely done. It looks as though you have both ailerons in a down position. They should be opposite each other. One up and one down. Chris
  11. By the way, does anyone know what was the purpose of those baffle plates? You don't see them on every Pegasus engine. Chris

    Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.I

    Yes, they do look better with a little Future brushed on them. I just hope I don't go blind trying to remove the mould lines from the undercarriage legs. Chris

    Has the heat...

    Not at all. My hobby space is a semi-finished room in the basement and the house has central air conditioning. If anything, it's a bit cool down there. I keep the furnace vent closed in the summer and only open it a bit in the winter to keep the room warm. As it is, it only gets to about 12C there in the winter. I have a small electric heater for the winter days I go down there. Right now it's probably about 18C to 20C in my room. Chris
  14. Tony, on the photo from yesterday, where you re-painted the flat black, that the starboard engine was missing the air baffle that fits over the gear casing. Did you add that before you installed the cowling over the engine? Chris
