Thank you Dear Spad !!

Hello Dears,

Part of the new problem is already solved by the PE fret ...

:evil_laugh:

Since I bought this decal sheet for another reason.... 

IMG_20200313_103103

I feel a desire growing irrestibly...

A little voice in my head is coming louder... Saying... Buy another Walrus....

Would'nt she be nice in silver ???

I must thank our Dear @Martian Hale since I receive it...

I just share some beers...

Hope to bring a smile for you all !

Have a great confined modelling week end !!

Sincerely.

Is the PE worth getting CC? I only ask as although I don’t drink much these days after a cannon ball and a few brothers I went looking for the original boxing like yours but couldn’t find it anywhere. Then my LMS had it by chance at the original price. Apparently the email tells me I paid for postage. 😯🤔🤫🤗

Glad to see you picked this up again and your fix for the drooping tail plane is quite crazy but worked out so phew. 

Since last time I posted on here I have managed to get an original boxing too, got it from the Battle of Britain Museum in Hawkinge last year, I do love going there.  

Ooooooooo Are you planning a Hawker Nimrod what with the decals and the Airfix Fury in shot???

Keep up the good work

All the best

Chris

Hello Spad,

Yes, Hey ! I got a kind of a frenzy when I was in Telford... I bought the 3 PE frets, Exterior, Interior and seatbelts.

Both 3 are worth the price even it the interior one is no longer visible once the fuselage is closed...😔

Seatbelts are specials on the Walrus, so, it's usefull...

If you have to choose one, it's the exterior one, and then the seatbelts...

@BS103 has bought it too, but later...

 

Hello Chris, 

The Nimrod is on her way...

I'll make some resin parts for the Fury, the Nimrod and the Spanish Fury, the thread is in the WiP forum...

I did'nt get in Hawkinge yet, then I feel sorry that the BoB ekhibit has been removed from the new RAF museum in Hendon 😢

 

Thaaaank you Roger !!

I'll try to get her to the finish line this time, Then I need some ASV aerials....

I'll look in my other kits !!

And Hooops, second Walrus ordered... No cure for me Alas !!

 

Sincerely.

I'm almost born in my grand'Ma's pub…

And I spend a lot of time in this pub when I was a kid…

My parents keep a pub in the '70 and then again in the '90

I worked more than once in pubs and restaurants

And now… It's my daughter who get a job in the soccer club's pub…

That's one hell of a lot of coincidences CC! :rofl2:

 

Divine madness on the tail droop, though would expect nothing less from your good self. 😁

Hope all is well with you my friend.

Indeed, wait !! My taste for strong beer is may be an atavic "curse" ???? :cheers:

Thank you Dear baron

I still managed to get out of covid field of fire... to date...

But Still, I go to work day after days...

Wifey is stable, no worsening, I suppose that we can thanks the god for that !

The doc say that it can take 3 weeks to a month to get rid of it...

But she's not contagious...

I'm a bit torn these days, danger outside with my customers and danger inside too...

It mean no real rest and respite...

Thanks for the kind words 

Sincerely.

Thanks Alain. I’ll have and early morning look around the virtual model shop for P.E. 😇 did you order the silver wings kit this time?

 

ps. Just had a mooch at the BIG H. The exterior fret. Is that the one with engine wires? What does it give apart from those? I can add wires. (Probably🤪) also there is the bomb bay set? Would you recommend that? 
aaand while I’m here the is a lovely set of HGW seat belts instead of the Eduard ones. Do you happen to know if they’re any good?

Heelo Spad,

I did my own wiring if I remember, but all the plates and supports are fine... See

IMG_20200419_120719 IMG_20200419_120726

I ordered any one Shagbat since I have my Markings, so, I don't know wich one will pop in...

HGW seatbelts are splendid, but I almost get a nervous breakdown when I used it on my Corsair

This stuff seem to have its own life dedicated to puzzle modellers...:bangin:

I hope this help.

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

A kit that breed .... Part III

I let this lady down for a while, mainly because my fixing of the droopy tail unit create another "need a fixing"...

As this year is a year of cleaning up the bench...

I bought this...

IMG_20210414_212839

Now, I have some good templates...

IMG_20210414_225038

And no longer have to ponder about wings folded or not.... 

It will bear a Pre war silver paint, Do we dare to call it High Speed Silver in this case ???

Another amazing comparison...

A Val is as big as a Walrus....

Apologies to all the Valerie reading this...

IMG_20210414_225255

More to come soon !!

Have a great modelling time !!

Sincerely.

Good for the seatbelts, I will now order a second set...

We modellers certainly get proficient at smuggling stuff in!!! I have one that should be arriving any day for a replacement tailplane unit missing from another kit, SWMBO is aware , just not aware that it is a whole kit!!!

An Aussie Shagbat too - even better Alain! I am, however, concerned about sharkmouth business. It is April and we still have no Airacobras!

 

Cheers,
