Navy-ating Bucc's fizz - On the deck at last

Recommended Posts

Having watched a fair few hours of Le Mans (far too many according to Mrs R) this last couple of days, & seeing the temperaures at La Sarthe, I think all that Bill will want when he gets back is a darkened room & a couple of big fans (& a few or more ice cold cans I should think!)

Couple of days I'd imagine - best start tidying up!

 

...and get those cans in the fridge!

We're just going to have to be honest and say that there was a break-in while Bill was away, and that we found the place like this Keith.:whistle:

No I'm not back

 

I'm about to descend on a small but beautiful Normandy town for dinner

 

And mayhap a few tadlets of incahol

 

I see Joyce the char thought she could slope off for a day or so with me being over here. Tsssk

 

Anyway no worries, she knows I'll be back on Toosday, she'll prolly get her mate Gert in to give her a hand

 

Don't bother tidying up

 

See y'all then.

I'm sure that's what you said... in fact you were quite firm about it - you said the wings would definitely be folded. 

 

Must be a combination of exhaust fumes and incahol that has affected your memory.

No we haven't, he asked us to look after it, all we did was give it a tiny bit of a makeover.

As indeed he should! We had better get the Baroness off it first though!

If we paint it silver it will look like his very own Sontaran Spaceship.

There is absolutely no truth in the scurrilous rumour that I put Brian up to that remark even though I resemble it!

Poor Bill.  Off he goes for a few days to refresh his batteries.... squatters move in and desecrate his thread from a thing of beauty into kitsch nirvana .

 

 

the poor guy will be having kittens when he realizes what havoc the colonists have wreaked

I don't know about you Earthlings but on Mars we have a saying about being careful about what you wish for. Bill is just getting what he wished for. Anyway, methinks he will be proud of what we have achieved in his absence and on a shoestring budget too I would add.

At least they'll be useful for catching the toilet fish. Although after the Baroness has spent the afternoon there I doubt they'll want to go too close!

Another of the rare posts that I have had to like in order to unlike. The picture you have painted is guaranteed to give not only my delicate self but also my cat, who has read this as well, nightmares for weeks to come.

Considering my actual witless passage through life up to this point I am flattered by the promotion to full halfwit!

I didnt really mind what you did in here, but I just had to delve back to page 5 to find it

 

D'you call that playing the game huh?

 

 

he he

 

:)

 

Well its been quite hard to overcome the travel and sun lethargy but I have had a go

 

making the Gyron Juniors has been a simple easing-in to modelling again

 

Started with the Staedtler pen tube

P1120930.jpg

 

With fuse wire ridges added and slid into a convenient mould box with a plasticene header

P1120929.jpg

 

Oops looks like the ridges have 'sprung'...  Oh well....:(

 

Latex poured and resin-added-value

P1120923.jpg

Emptied from the latex

P1120925.jpg

 

With a tad of work that will do

 

It has to, I'm out of fuse-wire

 

So cast another

P1120933.jpg

A fair old bit of trimming to do but no worries here

P1120935.jpg

 

Mix up a few Vallejo metallics with a smidgeon of colour too, for sombrenessnesssness

And prepare to get the inner bays a nice white colour

P1120936.jpg

 

Still making progress slowly with the airbrake construction and nose wheel bay

 

Oh yes the ejector seat blank is coming along nicely too

 

Just had a thought, got to pick a few for the Coventry show on Sunday, must awa' for a wee lookin'

Nice work! Now you are back, does that mean we all have to behave again? Not to worry if we do as some of us have the Baron's thread to look after.
