  1. This one is being posted over at Large Scale Planes. So you may have seen it there as well. This is my fourth build of this model. I first constructed it when I was a teenager and have had a kinky sort of love affair with it since. While only mediocre in terms of fit and finish, the designers went all out in providing fantastically accurate cockpit, interior and engine detail. (At least to the limits of what was common in the early 1980's.) The chances are good you know somebody with one of these in their collection: The model depicts the 1973 release of the airplane. But I'll be doing my best to replicate the interior of a later 1977 version. Later, 1977 interior: This one is being constructed for a friend and he has a specific request as to colors. The bright blues would not have been my first choice. He also wants the ship depicted in flight with doors and cowlings closed and a pilot figure at the yoke. Thus, I won't need to go crazy with engine detail. The desired scheme but with a US N-number: Not perfect, but close. Sticky clear sheet used for instrument "glass". More detail to follow. But I've got to start with setting up the pilot figure with a more realistic posture. Cheers, gents!
  2. Thanks to all for their advice, both reasonable and absurd, about a Telford Visit. The tickets are purchased. The room is reserved. And all things be ready if our minds be so. I'll be getting into Telford a couple of days prior to the show. So long as the rain is anything short of torrential, I plan to take a train and do some hiking. But aside from these daytime activities, for what sort of pre-show shenanigans and model nerd gatherings should I be watchful? There must be an unofficial pub or meeting place for those attending. See you there!
  3. Greetings gents, Many thanks to the admins for opening the door. My modelling genres cover just about the whole spectrum. (I'm presently painting a dinosaur the size of a house cat. So there's that.) Oh, and Monty Python and Mr Bean might have been the most important contributions to Western culture since the English longbow and the battle of Agincourt. So there's that too.
  4. Greetings Gents, Hello from Colorado. I may be able to make it out to Telfod in 2019. What general advice could you offer about accommodations, pitfalls and "must see" items which might affect a first time UK traveler? Thanks in advance, John
