  1. Sometimes you have to bring 'em out Steve Guys thanks but... That piece is now festering away under a coat of Humbrol filler whilst I try to restore the true cross section of the window to roof section I filed the plastic to the profile, then sanded and buffed it then polished it back to clear I'll put some pics of that stage in later but this morning is going to be a though time with files and Micromesh Wish me luck, I'm going in...
  3. Oh bugger Lost a post again I have been working on the window slot and have been using eihrsc as well as sihrsc to clean up the very hard CD case plastic With the piece in the vise I used both to flatten the edges And open the tapered (inevitably as a result of doing this as a second guess) slot out to parallel see? Soon sorted on the day Soon ready for the glue guy to finish his break and get some work done Ah yes here he is There is a little excess glue down the back of the fuselage which I hope will polish out later, as you see Humbrol Tube glue rescued from an Airfix Starter kit This might have been the Gnat* I mean at least not before tomorrow, it is Tuesday Tonight is Toby Carvery night for a change Yummy *Must build that one day soon
  4. As you will all realise I was hoping it wouldn't come to this but it has The window positions have been saved from the original positions and a chunk of CD case clear plastic is being produced to replace the missing bit The holes were measured up, as well as the windows marked on the plastic. This should be OK This however looks as if it will be OK This glazing looks OK to me, we'll see when the nose is ON
  5. We hope Colin We hope Pity they had windows innit! Yes I'm on it, soon get there
  6. Me too At the front, over there Good start Ceb, Ced ,Cel, Cad er yes Ced
  7. Agreed, I usually use German Grey instead of black Both in Tamiya and in Vallejo they work well that way I understand that night is basically a very very very dark blue with odds and sods of other tints within it Nick Millman will probably be able to put me right on that
  8. I received one of those lathes in the post last year (thanks mate, an amazing gift)* A more than toothsome morsel and now I know there is youtube I shall have at it I need to learn the skills of the bead lathe, I expect this to be more readily assimilated than vector drawings Crete Amazing looking place Ced thanks for the travelogue And look at that Minoan red paint, Walpamur could have used that long lasting pigment for trade paint huh Lighting? yes superb DO do a RFI You might be pleasantly surprised at the results, after all WE LIKE IT!
  9. Is the original exactly like the new one above? which means it isnt the original because I did an edit in the thread I cannot find the original anywhere in the postimg. gallery
  10. As it has disappeared into the vagaries of Win 10 and Postimage I took the shot again (here again) for your references of course However it doesnt even look like that anymore I didnt like the junctions between clear and solid so... Off with its windows, port side at least I intend trying strips of bespoke CD case plastic I know it responds well to polystyrene glue so... Watch this space Later after I come home from 'club' this arvo
  11. I'm getting it too on a tablet I think it was photographed with my phone Further investigations proceed
  12. Although similarly ignorant I would say the HS does indeed indicate the unit marking for the Annie It is most likely to be that but that doesnt help if you needed to check a particular machine's individual letter But you already have that dont you
