  1. Monsieur Sweety! (hope Monsieur @Laurent is not jealous ) Your work is awesome! Always wanted to have a good picture of the exhaust manifold scheme in the Corsair; found out the Tamiya 1/48 kit didn't have them, and when I found the REXxs ones, they were comprised of only the three portions of the exhaust protruding under the engine cowling Will try to fashion the reindeer's horns with some wire plastic insulation. Yeh, me will... à votre santé Welcome to BM. dr(Unk2)
  2. 3-A-305 was my uncle's mount when attacking and sinking HMS Ardent on May the 21st, 1982. You know this is what modellers building the 1/48 Hasegawa A-4B kits have never understand me saying. The kit nose looks WAY too stubby for my taste, and it's like one is to modify and lengthen it in order for it to look like in the real aircraft. This is how the Hasegawa nose piece compares to that in the plans you used to your mod. Y'see...? It's as though you needed not only to lengthen it 4-some milimetres but also turn it upwards a couple of degrees. And what it's more, if you ever looked to the Hobbycraft 1/48 A-4B kit, you'll see that the nose is spot on - were it not for that awful windshield/canopy in it. What do you think? Cheers, Unc2
  3. NNNNNNOOOIIICEEE...!!! Really impressed by the finish and look on this Scooter warrior. You know what, Alex? I bet you could make this bird look even better if you scrapped the paint off the base of the windshield. Congratulations on a work very well done! Cheers, Unc2
  4. Oh, that's what the bread is stuffed up the turkey's butt for... But has it got to be alive? I could always stuff it thru the other end if not. And if the turkey's got to be alive, then it's the sheila who's going to do it. Oh, yeh she is... Cheers, Sadistic of Martian Unc2
  5. Sadistic... I mean, what shove bread up a turkey's rump for? Do they expect to have some smoked bread in return...? Anyways, that Hobbit breakfast has stirred the gastric juices in my stomach. ¡Rico! Yeh, it did... Cheers, Unc2
  6. Djordje, hi Did you happen to modify the nose on the Italeri kit, by chance? It's impressive how good it looks. Cheers, Unc2
  7. Oh, well; life goes on. I've wept non-stop in my corner ever since my last input above, three hours ago. Now I've got some swollen eyelids just like those in elderly Robert Mitchum used to have. Thanks, Diego. Cheers, Unc2
  8. Only one option for the Chilean birds? I was expecting hi-vis Chilean markings even for the T Mk72s... -----> <----- Yeh, me was, Diego. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED! Cheers, Unc2
  9. My sheila has stated: "CC's grandpa might as well have passed as Robbie Williams had he lived nowadays..." D'ya want me to spank her, my mate? As for the look of "they're" compressor fans on the Kinetic kit, I've scored each blade on its leading edge with those wonderful GSI Creos 0.10mm chisel blades in order to separate 'em from the leading edge of the following blade. Then I filed down the width of each blade so that there's light between each blade, for which I needed to devise a 0.5mm sanding stick. Be careful with the ring braces on the fan. Cheers, Unc2
  10. Yeh, that might have as well been the case had Mike not stepped on my popcorn on his way in... As for the brew, I should have wiped it off the floor with my hair like Homer Simpson did with his spilled Minoxidil Uh-huh... but then again, so is with that new-release Kinetic kit anyway... You're doing a nice work, Andy! Keep it up that way. Cheers, Unc2
  11. Ah, well, Martian. No offence, then little sister's off the hook, I infer? Everyone's so indulgent to her, I wonder why... Yeh, me does... Cheers, Unc2
  12. Outrageous! That lil' lass making fun of the General...? How dare she? I've just found out about it when the notifications popped up, Andy. Making it on my back, and making the lil' cousin a part of the crime. She's having both her wrists slapped. She ought to better up her Photoshop skills before she goes posting such inflammatory stuff on my behalf. I shall ne'er leave the computer online when Astrid is dropping in on us; ever! Apologise to both Martian and Andy. Cheers, Unc2 PS: Those are very nice pants, Melchie.
  13. Andy, It's going to be an awesome build, you'll see. Howdy, Mike That was all mine. Considered picking it all up from the floor - especially the brew - but then I thought it was going to be quite an embarrassing show for anyone entering the thread. Cheers, Unc2
  14. My pleasure, my mate. I took the file to a stationers in order to print the whole 8 files in 1/48th scale. Wish I could work those computer programs you do, but that's out of my league, unfortunately. Hey, Ranger! Of course you can; no need to ask. Just drop me yer addy and up they go to beautiful Carrollton (the Squadron.com town!) What kit are you planning to use them on? Well, the A-12 ain't my bag, to be honest with you, but that's exactly what Serkan is doing on this thread. Cheers everyone, Unc2
