Its coming on CC - getting their quickly now...    

 

Watch out for the canopy.  On my Skua the canopy was narrow and needed springing out.  I glued a rail of plastic to the inside edge of the fuselage opening to form a small ridge and let it set hard.  When I added the canopy I stretched it over which aligned the outside of the canopy just right.  I clamped it down hard to set.  However I stretched the Pilots sliding section to far and cracked it so be careful...

 

I have my Skua displayed next to a Sea Gladiator and two BoB Spitfires, it dwarfs them all.  But in another bay in the display case I am trying to fit my BPF group which consists of a Seafire III, Firefly I, Corsair II and Hellcat II, now that I can tell you is a tight squeeze and the Seafire is tiny compared to everything else...  - to misquote an old adage - You get into a Skua, you strap on a Seafire...

Harry Potter has made its way here too..

I wanted to call Usgär… But the vote was for Sirius !!

So I call my revenge and nicknamed Sirius Cream !!

Or Padraïc O' Flaherty !

HARRY POTTER!!!!!! - Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!

 

 

Fionn mac Cumhaill (sometimes transcribed in English as MacCool) was a legendary hunter-warrior of Irish mythology. The stories of Fionn and his followers the Fianna, form the Fenian Cycle (an Fhiannaíocht), much of it narrated in the voice of Fionn's son, the poet Oisín.

 

Fionn met his most famous wife, Sadhbh, when he was out hunting. She had been turned into a deer by a druid, Fear Doirich, whom she had refused to marry. Fionn's hounds, Bran and Sceólang, born of a human enchanted into the form of a hound, recognised her as human, and Fionn brought her home. She transformed back into a woman the moment she set foot on Fionn's land, as this was the one place she could regain her true form. She and Fionn married and she was soon pregnant. When Fionn was away defending his country, Fear Doirich returned and turned her back into a deer, whereupon she vanished. Fionn spent years searching for her, but to no avail. Bran and Sceólang, again hunting, found her son, Oisín, in the form of a fawn; he transformed into a child, and went on to be one of the greatest of the Fianna.

 

So that's your Irish connection - no shamrock required...

Thanks Grey !

Sooo That's it, thank for sharing the great story !

Years ago, I spent some times Learning about old Irish stories.

I get there as an example

https://www.shannonheritage.com/Craggaunowen/

And got to paid a visit to the first boat to reach the U.S...

May be before the Vikings did it !

Stunningly, I get in a castle in Ireland where a Community of nuns from Belgian were living for years !

They came up there to help at the time of the great famine.

I'll save this story in my files.

Thank again !

Hello Dears,

Some news from the Roccies !!

WP_20190205_21_00_38_Pro

Exhaust bored and glued in place ! Such a big bore for a little engine is quite surprising but ….

Oil cooler is on too

WP_20190205_21_42_03_Pro

A bit of finishing and it will look good !

Now the turret !!

WP_20190205_22_39_21_Pro

The bracket in front of the guns is very fragile, so I drilled and add a peg

Then I also started to work on the machine gun breeches, it was too flat regarding of the real thing !

Oh and Look, that's the way I will show myself in the airport and any other metal detector !!

WP_20190205_14_47_40_Pro

Did you carry a gun Sir !

Sure a 1758 silex pistol !! :rofl2::rofl2:

So, have a great modelling time !!

Sincerely.

Hello Dears !!

Here's what is looking like a cunning plan….

WP_20190317_21_43_00_Pro

But a really Dicey one...😰

And then the S:poo:....

WP_20190317_22_48_21_Pro

The drying rocket launcher fell on the silver paint…. :deadhorse:

Hope that St Patrick will forgive me, That's quite a great job… No mention of the swearing….

But I get a relief then..

WP_20190317_22_47_06_Pro

The fit is now perfect !!

I think that the glue is responsible since I tried it before and it was looking fine !

Luckily, I glued one side only...

WP_20190317_22_46_54_Pro

Then I was looking for my guiness and see !!

WP_20190317_20_28_17_Pro

I think that the Irish wolfhound was also eager to have a St Padraig break !!

Have a great modelling time !!

Sincerely.
