    How do I post Pictures?

    Yes i also have a Flickr account! When i am in edit mode on this forum, i paste link, and within a second the link turns into a photo and you cant revert and its hard to delete the photo once placed. Ive just realized... when i paste the photo link i copy and paste the link at the top of the browser (https://www.flickr.com/photos/1548888....... Etc etc). While it seems you are pressing "edit" and copying the URL link and hence you have the size settings. I never tried it this way. Also i never had problems with the "Flickr text" like you and others do.... Ok i just tried the new way.

    How do I post Pictures?

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO POST PICTURES AS A LINK ONLY, BUT WHEN PUBLISHED, A PICTURE SHOWS UP? I remember a few years ago when posting from photobucket only a link showed up. then when published it shows the photo. Its really annoying that pictures fill up my screen when i'm writing a thread and if i dont press space after posting, i will not be able to post under it.. It used to be easier and concised when posting links and writing under the photo link.

    Fouga Magister - 1975 Airfix

    The sink marks in the seat are in an awkward position so fill and sand. i thought id get away with it when i scratch build the seat belts and cover the spots! Panels and sticks in place. Lead pellets were used as nose weight. Finally we have a TINY Magister. It will need a lot of sanding and some filler. I must be carefull not to touch the panel lines and rivets. I forgot to mention... i WILL NOT re-scribe the model. I hate rescribing and i am bad at it!
  5. Over the past 2 years... I've developed a 'thing' for building OLD vintage kits. 1:72 kits. I like the fact that they are so small, take up small spaces on the desk and they are simple to build. This is the second 1970s kit I'm building. One was the Airfix Super Mystere, while others were re-boxings of old kits (Heller). Since my last 3 models were French aircraft in French markings... well... might as well continue with another French! This will be the third model in 'Patrouille de France' markings. For a 1975 kit i think it's pretty detailed! More panel detail than 80/90s and 00's kits for sure! Lovely rivet detail which I hope will not get buffed down. White decals seemed to have yellowed SLIGHTLY. unfortunately I can't find replacements. Shall I leave them facing the sun?? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MD.450 Ouragan - Heller 1:72

    You are absolutely right! they are too thick and dark. I used the Trumpeter scriber and i find its too wide for a 1:72 model. My wash might have been too concentrated & in contrast with a polished finish. I have a tendancy to press too hard when scribing and pass over the same line too much. ive learnt my lesson. next time light passes.

    MD.450 Ouragan - Heller 1:72

    Yes i had to rescribe it ALL. Yes it is from the PDF team. This kit put me off Heller...

    MD.450 Ouragan - Heller 1:72

    thank you all It looks great from a distance, but full of flaws in close up Next up (after some 1:48 builds) is a 1:72 Fouga Magister. Not Dassault, but still French!
  12. Dassault MD.450 Ouragan The Dassault family Left to right: Super Etendard, Super Mystere, Mystere IVA, Ouragan. Next up? 'Patrouille de france' Mystere & Ouragan.
  13. Wheels bays painted aluminum. Unfortunately... this model was a "tail sitter"! My only option was to place a few lead pellets into the gear bay. IT WORKED! This is the way i do it... Wheels broke off so to strengthen them i had to drill holes and insert copper wire. Hole drilled into wheel bays...and... The drill bit came out onto the other side!!
