    Assistance with 1/72 scale Warrior build

    Light Stone is one of the wartime colours (like Sky, Dark Green ans Medium Sea Grey) that found its way into the post war BS381C. Xtracyrlix and Xtracolour also do it. Same colour as used on RAF transports in the late 60's and early 70's.
  2. Lovely work on the Attacker, I know what awaits me when I pull mine from the stash. I hope your father improves, my mum is 92 next month and a constant worry and so I can appreciate your concern.

    The ever so slightly miffed thread.

    Thanks Steve, not sure about Halifax/Huddersfield as it falls at the same time as my 65th, but hopefully will be there. Gradually getting better, just tired more than I would like and I have to watch how much I can drink. Alison sends her regards and how is social services?

    The ever so slightly miffed thread.

    Well at least in my current state of health, I am being cut some slack. Mind you Mrs T hates shopping and so not really expected to enjoy the 'experience'. Thank you everyone for your comments. It could have been a lot worse and Mrs T and I were thinking back to when if you had a PE, it meant two weeks in hospital with a syringe driver full of heparin and daily blood tests, before several months of warfarin with weekly at least blood tests

    The ever so slightly miffed thread.

    Slightly miffed that the pulmonary embolism and the infection that provoked it has left me so tired that I am going to bed about half eight when that is normally my modelling time. Getting a little bit done in the day, but not as much as I would like. Mrs T says I am improving and my appetite is coming back, but I am annoyed that I am not 'right'.

    Airfix 1/48th Hawker Hunter F6

    Very nice looking kit, although not my scale, I just hope Airfix have some nice 1/72nd scale stuff for the next year.

    Things to do in England when you're Ed[ward]

    YAM is worth seeing if you are in Yorkshire, but is a bit of a trek otherwise. Distances in the UK can be deceptive, especially once you have come off the motorway (freeway) system as most country roads still follow medieval field boundaries and by US standards tend to be narrow and guess where most airfields are. BTW the BBMF is at Coningsby and the trip round is interrupted by the roar of Typhoons taking of and landing. The village church also has one of the earliest mechanical clocks in the country that still works from the early 1600's. The reasons most of the small museums shut in winter is because UK winters tend not only to be coldish (I know temps might look better than US), but there often is not a lot of sun around and it is damp and they cannot afford a lot of heating. If passing through you are welcome to visit as we are off two motorways.

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    IanHX, weight not a problem and discussed with Mrs T who is well used to dealing with stuff like this and was with me when the consultant came and thanks for raising a potential issue. Bentwaters81tfw. I am sorry for you loss and I recall the old treatment. Today the blood tests and use of contrast CT has made a big difference in diagnosis and even using warfarin tends to be better. One of the issues from 35+ years ago was on of diagnosis before a clot detached and formed a DVT or worse. The more modern anticoagulants do seem to much better designed. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    Further to me grump on not feeling well because I had an infection. The good news is that the infection is now much better. The bad news is as a result of all this, I now have a pulmonary embolism, this was diagnosed after blood tests yesterday followed by a CT scan today. Could be worse as in the old days you had to stay in hospital with a heparin infusion and more recently had to have warfarin that required, at first, fairly frequent blood tests. Today the modern drugs require much less supervision. Could be happier.

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    A double grump: 1) For the past week I have been ill with a bacterial dental problem with a viral upper respiratory tract infection. I have felt terrible and had a high temperature. Today I am feeling a bit better bit completely exhausted as last night was the first decent night sleep I have all week 2) Indoor fireworks. Mrs T and Miss T went a did some Christmas shopping this morning and came back with some indoor fireworks. My past experience with these has been underwhelming, but Mrs and Miss T are easily amused. My 'favourite' is the volcano. Not so much Krakatoa, more like upturned paper cone that spews forth a substance not unlike earth worm casts. I am seriously grumpy at the moment.

    RAF P-38

    I have one on the go at the moment and it does need some care in assembly and is not for the faint hearted. It is a good idea to write the part numbers on the parts needed for the RAF variant as you get different radiators and engines. Also as the mouldings are short run, there needs to be care taken in parts preparation. Mine is currently stalled as I am proper poorly as they say up here.
  13. The 1987 Gloster book is a reissue of a title published in the 60's with little updating. Some of the titles in the Putman range have errors in that they were written without the benefit of up to date research. For example the Avro books labels the 720 photo as being of the airframe rather than the mockup.

    Fortress Mk.I Camouflage

    That's fine, these things happen. A well known local artist in Sheffield (who BTW is a modeller) went into an art dealer, because one of his paintings was for sale, to be told that the price reflected the fact the artist was dead. The local artist soon put him right.

    Spitfire in The Train (1964)

    My copy is on my computer and I have no idea where it came from. It is on Film4 at 16.00 on 23rd November, which is probably not much good to you in NZ. YouTube and Google play will let you download for £2.49 in the UK.
