Some kind of a very special AAA battery

Recommended Posts

I hope you have plenty of filler in stock, it looks like you are going to need it. I looks like Miliput looms large in my not too distant future as well. :(

I think so !!

Not to mention my second roc !

I'll select the best trailing edge for the folded wings one !

The best leading edge for the AAA battery !

For such a large gap I tend to use bits of plasticard !

Thank for the kind words !

Take care Dear ETI and have a good modelling time !

Sincerely

CC

Before settling on the amount of filler you need, you need to take a look at the wing unfolded.  

 

I have yet to fit mine to my Skua but I strongly suspect that the fixed upper wing surface is not going to fit too snugly.  I am going to try fitting the wing outboard sections (mine will both be unfolded) to the lower centre section before fitting the upper inboard panel.  When I'm fitting the upper inboard panels I'll fit it to work out which side will be easier to fill..

To have to filler one Roc may be regarded as unfortunate; to do two looks like masochism!

Of course oh Dear Tentacled one !

But now ! You know me ! so is it really astonishing ???

I have my blue Chimay in the fridge for my modelling session of this evening !!

Tamiya make the putty for my Kits

Chimay make the putty for my soul (if any !! :rofl2::rofl2:)

With 2 fonderie on the go including a transparent Sikorsky....

Masochism can be considered as an option !!

But I will not start the Skua that soon.... The Barracuda is waiting :whip::whip:

I start to think about a costume for SMW 2019 :evil_laugh::evil_laugh:

Hello @Martian Hale

Hope that your R-5 is a little bit better than this one !!

 

WP_20171125_19_48_51_Pro

Mine will not be finished tomorrow for sure !! :coolio::coolio:

Scratch building is "de rigueur"

Quoting a movie title and the corresponding Iron Maiden song

" The emptiness of the poor fonderie chopper "

That's a manner for me to say "Where did i put my fingers once again !!"

That's modelling, if not, where would be the pleasure ??

Sincerely.

I did warn you about Fonderie kits but clearly you had had too much of that Belgian rocket fuel you were carting about the other weekend! :cheers:

Hello Dear ETI

Did'nt bought Fonderie kit since I became a member of BM !! :crap:

However, would the Fonderie Halifax in Telford have been cheaper, and I should have bought her !

I think my Dear ETI that we are the same king of seriously minded sober pals !!

I can resist to anything but the temptation !!:thumbsup::guitar:

Are you going to start that Alizé any sooner, c'm on and join the fraternity of the Fonderie scratchers !

Ok will bring on more rocket fuel for SMW 2019 !!:evil_laugh::evil_laugh: and we gonna be sober of course ! like any @Martian Hale can be !

Sincerely.

The Alize will follow the Tracker on the production line. I have quite enough trying to destroy what little is left of my sanity as it is. Wibble.

It's appreciated - we've got some younger members, and I'd hate for that awkward question about those words to be as a result of visiting our forums.  I'm a bit of a recreational swearer myself, but on the forum I always keep it clean :)

Hello dears,

Raaaah 8 days without modelling, I became nervous and start scratching and itching myself...

I get in Germany with SWMBO for a lecture...

Aaaaand we get snow...

 

WP_20171210_14_25_07_Pro

In the middle of the day, snow still falling and Niederwambach is a tiny village in the Westerwald..

13 Kms for getting in the hotel, on tiny road covered with compacted snow...

That's the image of the relief

WP_20171209_19_32_24_Pro

Very good hotel !!

And indeed a very german meal for replenishment after a hard day !

WP_20171209_20_23_23_Pro

Witlock gulash with pear and a delicious cream with some berries

I mean this one

WP_20171209_20_25_21_Pro

Lord !! Believe me, I licked the bowl...

There surely was white chocolate in it, it was really delicious !

Then in the room, I can place a bet on the favourite TV show of the designer of this lamp !

WP_20171211_07_44_51_Pro

Ok dears, today, I need plastic... and glue... and paint.... Aaaaaaand Putty :huh:

see you later !

sincerely.

Will finish it tomorrow surely !

27807180839_24481fdee5_b.jpg

Hello Dears,

I'm glad with a pair of Roc wings !

I selected these ones for the folded wing example

Since I think that I did better in thinning the trailing edges

24805528527_fcd614549b_b.jpg

I will now finish the 2 last wings for the almost built Roc !

Goooood, Will be at least a Roc this year !!

Sincerely !

That was a joke O Dear great tentacled one !

Look, the first Roc got her wings :sad::sad:

39520611784_26ed589274_b.jpg

Having the right dihedral is not easy at all

Everybody need some .357:rofl2:

39520611754_686b21c84b_b.jpg

Some putty... You bet Dear Martian !!

39520611824_dca256474a_b.jpg

I need some comfort, and I received another special tip from a Customer !

A very rare beer, look...

39520611864_6547761a24_b.jpg

The sixth and rarest belgian trappist ! available only at the Westvleteren monastery !!

They will not sell a full box of it ! The only one that is still brewed by the monks !

39520611884_f19a839f3b_b.jpg

West Vleteren, A beer that Roc ! Sorry about that the Roc bantering was in bad need when one saw this ...

26358883138_4e05b127d4_b.jpg

Or that...

26358883128_15e59a9370_b.jpg

What a luck the next Roc will have folded wings :evil_laugh::evil_laugh:

Ok Dears, Good bye cruel world seem "De rigueur" now

Well, See you later for more of Rocities !!

Sincerely.

Hello dears

Someone say "Plenty of filler !!"

Hit the road Jack, crying over the slits of the wings is fruitless !

Here I go ! Plasticard, CA glue And FILLER, war is declared !

39635346644_f5290cdc65_b.jpg

And the other side ! No jealousies...

39635346654_f86d0394ec_b.jpg

And she will be silver doped....

That will be pretty funny indeed !

Wish me good luck, think that it will help !

Hello dears,

guess what ??

This evening I did made some sanding :rofl2::rofl2:

I also tried to insert the engine in the cowling and Kerplunk !! :raincloud::raincloud:

40343440232_c7d2d1317a_b.jpg

The cowling broke up, I make a mistake when gluing that :angry: exhaust staks, I suppose that the exhaust ring has skidded a bit and got out of center.

I also managed to break up the triangle that get in front of the engine.... The frame is 3 time bigger than the part.... Sooooo, I also repair that

But I start to collect some anger and start swearing too

And Then....

40343440202_25b17c72fa_b.jpg

I glued the deck in lowered position, everything went smoothly, I let the glue to cure and saw that.

Time to stop any modelling for today....

A shot of rum and go to bed....

Have a very good modelling time, at least better than mine, seem to be easy to do :emo:

Sincerely.

Delighted to see the Roc again; less delighted to see the gaps, since I have a Skua in the stash and assume it will have similar challenges...

seemingly yes, since my second Roc is gone the same way...

But as the wing will be folded, I don't really care :evil_laugh:

Thanks for the kind words, still I must install a gunner in the opened turret

Promise to be fun too, I will need more Lamb's :banghead:

And the Bucc is still running on, I search in my stash for a suitable engine to insert it in the S1 air intake.

Have a nice modelling time too !

I hope that our Dear Martian will restart his own Floatplane Target tug !

Sincerely ! Yep 4 Rocs in the same time that will be just crazy !
