  1. Amazing stuff! Kudos to both Fritag and Hendie. Impressed of Mars
  2. I would tend towards the white light myself on the grounds that similar problems tend to beget similar solutions. Martian
  3. Sadly not. I refer the distinguished Earthling the response I gave @Navy Birdthe other day: "The reason for this is that the Time Lords of Gallifrey have a monopoly on Tardis and all other time and space travel related gear. I personally think it is part of a cunning plan to get twenty four months building time for their models between the annual Scalemodel World shows at Telford. We know they attend because K9 tried to do unspeakable things to my leg one year!" Martian
  4. Marmalade is so cute that I have gone all broody. If Mrs Martian could give birth to kittens, the Council would have to put us up in the largest mansion they could find. The model is coming together very nicely as well. Martian
  5. Do you think your brain will behave now as a result of the talking to? I hope not! Martian
  6. Why not turn all those bits into a Vogon Constructor Fleet ship? Look, heres some plans for you as well: Helpful of Mars
  7. Not just yet Ian. The beer will have long since gone off before more plastic worrying takes place, let alone completion. We would have to drink it to prevent it being wasted. Hang on a minute! Martian
  8. I'm so sorry Alain. I went through the same thing last year. and I really feel for you. If you need to let off steam, feel free to contact me. One of the very few things I am good at is listening. Martian
  9. Your efforts continue to meet with our Galactic approval. Well done that Earthling! Martian
  10. I was going to say the same about myself until Mrs Martian pointed out that the reverse is true when I have been eating too many baked beans! Martian
  11. Evil child! So would you with maybe a few extra rockets attached. Martian
  12. Thanks Jeff but it's not out of anyone's league. It just look complicated. The hardest part was drilling holes through the booms. The rest was easier than threading a needle. Thanks Alistair but as to not having the ability, I refer you to the answer I gave the member for Oz. Thanks Pete. Not to worry about the hay fever season being over, the raiding brewer's drays in Lincolnshire season looms ever closer! Thanks Loren. The fibromyalgia is always there but every so often one gets a bad bout of it. Cheers Steve. Cheers Ian. Thanks Terry. Thanks Colin, I hope you back improves soon. Martian
  13. Having got this kit with all the accessories I could lay my tentacles on and seeing as Mrs Martian bought me the kit for Christmas with the proviso that it didn't just stay in the stash, I am extremely interested to see how you get on with this. The ship was never fitted with her funnel cap so I'm not so sure that Trumpeter have got it so very wrong. I do stand to be corrected on this point though. Nice to know Eduard are so customer focused. Martian
  14. I think I might have overdone things a bit when General and Lady Melchett visited the other week as I have had a bad bout of fibromyalgia which has kept me away from the bench a lot. Still I have now got most of the rigging done, with just the rigging for the controls left to do. Most of my time over the last week has been spent making good where I have removed traces of the wires that passed right through the upper wing. This has been the very epitome of tedium but I should be OK to mask up the wing ready for remedial airbrush work. The lines you see hanging loose are the control lines for the ailerons, there will be just about the last items to get added to the model. I decided to use a couple of wicker seats from Barracuda Models and these are in paint as we speak. I have to keep reminding myself not to forget that engine I bought for the build! Thanks for looking. Martian
  15. This is of course possible but the cost of the equipment far outweighs the savings on postage. The reason for this is that the Time Lords of Gallifrey have a monopoly on Tardis and all other time and space travel related gear. I personally think it is part of a cunning plan to get twenty four months building time for their models between the annual Scalemodel World shows at Telford. We know they attend because K9 tried to do unspeakable things to my leg one year! Martian
  16. Postage works out about £1 per mile. Which, I am given to understand, compares very favourably with US Post overseas rates. It's still cheaper for me come and collect my kits in person though. Martian
