    Looking at that built up, the nose is too skinny. The canopy is wrong too. I will have to do something about that.

    I've just had a nice lie down, thank you. I'm so glad I drink neither tea nor coffee, or watch idiots 'act' on the idiot box. I have a nice, calming, theraputic hobby called plastic modelling.

    I have 2 in that boxing, and 2 more in Hasegawa boxes, and a further two built with the fighter bomber nose, plus more conversions and Bentwaters decals. 4 Kitty Hawk, 1 Monogram with C&H conversion, and 1 Combat Wings 1/32 scale monster. Do you think I like Voodoos?

    Not something you see everyday. On holiday in Uzbekistan, these were common as minibuses/taxis in outlying areas. The main roads are tarmac but side roads are all compacted earth, almost chalky in appearance. Anyway, this is the 1/35 AMG short run kit of the 'Bukhanka' 4x4 utility bus. There is an abundance of natural gas there so many buses run on bottled gas. The roof rack was scratch built, and I have tried to show the appearance of a well used and abused bus in everyday use.

    When you shorten the splitter plate, file it back from the front edge, not the back.

    I have mine delivered by a proper milkman at 72p per pint full fat.

    That's not milk, it's watered down distemper. Supermarket 'homogenised' is unfit for human consumption. As for skimmed or semi skimmed.

    NO! Cut the front off up to the line of the tape. The intake must be at 90 degrees to the fuselage. Discard the red shaded areas. You may need to file the lower lip to reprofile it as per this picture.

    Cross checking the references, yes. The intakes need shortening where you have taped. The type IIIC intake of the 2 seater extends further forward along the fuselage. Don't forget the reduce the length of the splitter plate too.
  17. I think this should be 'leaked' to the likes of Southend News Network, and Suffolk Gazette. It will be all over the BBC and Daily Fail like an embarrassing rash.

    We have more than a few 'asylum seekers' you can have too.

    The IFR probe was alternate black and yellow bands. From the nozzle, starting with black, there were 7 black and 6 yellow bands. This was certainly the case for the single seaters. The canopy interior frame is black, The internal front edge of the canopy bow is grey, the release/locking lever is yellow. The nosegear bay is unpainted aluminium. The nose gear uplock jaws are red. All gear doors are red inside.

    Coming along well. Suggestions have been made about joining the fuselage into full length halves, to eliminate the step created by adding the nose and tail sections to the completed centre section.

    Thefts from Shows

    Anyone caught red handed should be marched around the venue so everyone can have a chance to memorise him. He wouldn't last long at any future venue as regulars get to know each other, and we are nationwide.

    The '5 a day' has no basis in science. It was a slogan dreamed up by the California Fruit Growers to try and boost sales. Advertising pure and simple.

    That is excellent news. May you stay clear of it in the future.
