    Spanish Dornier Do-27 ?

    Hi, mate..... Some years ago, that question was asked in a spanish modeliing site, no longer existing.... For what it's known, no special meaning, just a kind of "nose art". Some sources go further in this matter, and claim it to be the "motto" of the liasion pilots from Ala de Caza nº 12. There's an old saying here in Spain, for those who work hard with no rest, its said that "trabajan como chinos" (work like a chinese). Those little planes were always ready for service, doing all kind of works, from liaision, light transport, delivery van, fire fighting, reconnaissance, VIP transport and so. But that's just a spurious theory. Anyway, just the first 50 planes entering service with the Ejército del Aire were Dorniers. From L9-51 onwards, they were spanish built CASA 127. Best regards...!!
  3. Thanks a lot for your kind comments, gents.... To be fair, those old airliners have some kind of glamour around them..... Best regards.

  5. There must be something about those old kits that, whenever I see one of them so beautifully built as yours, makes my heart go faster...
  6. Yes, with great pain and struggle......some Mr. Decal Setter was needed...
  7. Hi all. Please, let me show you my lastest finished kit. It's the old Italeri's Junkers Ju52/3m, in airliner colours. It's actually a comission build, ordered by a gent whose father used to fly these planes regularly. He wanted an OOB kit, with no weathering at all. I've finally managed to build it in a few evenings. He's going to take it away next friday morning. I hope you'll l IMGP0001 by Arturo Navarro, en Flickr IMGP0005 by Arturo Navarro, en Flickr IMGP0002 by Arturo Navarro, en Flickr IMGP0004 by Arturo Navarro, en Flickr

    It's a beauty. I don't usually like choppers, but yours is soooo nice.....
  9. Hi, Sergey:

    I'd like to order your Hunting Percival Provot T.1 kit, but I'm from the Canary Islands, and don't want to take any risk receiving the kit with the wrong canopy...Is there any way to order it straight from you, or shall I order it from any retailer, and once checked if the canopy is wrong, asking for a correct one from you...????

    We don'r have any hobby shoop here in Tenerife stocking MicroMir products, so must rely on online orders.

     Best wishes....

     

    Arturo Navarro.

  10. Hi all.....just wanted to give you a brief update about how the N3PB is making progress. If things don't get messed, this weekend the kit will be ready for mouldings. That means that in two/three weeks we'll be able to ship the first 10 preordered kits.... Here you some pics of the master parts, hope you'll like them.

    Vote Grump!

    My grump of today, eeerrr, my EVERYDAY's grump....: Those stupid, cheeky drivers who leave their cars with the emergency blinkers flashing, never mind if they're disturbing other drivers, on second row, in front of a garage entrance, on a crosswalk, on a disabled only parking spot, bus stop, taxi park, whatever........YOUR EMERGENCY LIGHTS DON'T GIVE YOU A LETTER OF MARQUE FROM THE KING. I don't mind if you're going to stay there "just a minute" or the rest of your stupid life. Your car is disturbing other drivers or pedestrians, worl champion chumps...!!!
  12. Dear Moa, I'd like to ask you, to beg you a favour: Please, stop posting those bauties. Everytime I see one of them, my blood pressure rises up like a firework in Guy Fawkes' night, and I suffer from cardiac arrythmia. TIA and best regards....

    Primers

    I always use good old Humbrol enamel as a primer. Usually light grey.....It works for me, and as they say, "if it works....." Vallejo primer...????? run for your life.....I've never used a WORST primer. I use to build resin kits, so sometimes you have to cope with lots of tiny bubbles here and there....then, using Mr. Surfacer 1200/1500 works fine....but I use actone to thin it, it won't attack the resin. Always remember to polish it with very fine grade wet sandpaper...!!! Cheers....

    Vote Grump!

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that.........Some time ago, being unemployed, I stayed at home and did the house work, and I really enjoyed doing it. I don't mind doing the cleaning, except for some tasks that I've got completely forbidden by SWMBO.......laundry: I can't get closer than 1 meter to the washing machine, last time I did I mixed different kinds of colours, materials, etc...turning mots of her underwear into a pink mess..... On the other hand, my spare time is almost spent at home, building scale models, or at my local hobby shop, building scale models....Except the mandatory saturday evening trip to our local irish pub, I love staying at home. Maybe because I've developed a visceral rejection towards the human specie??????? My wife says that "I am an antisocial sociopath and a grumpy premature oldman".........
