Thanks Leon, glad you like it :)

I'm also pleased (and a little proud) to report that I've been asked if Andy Goodall can post the build on the Wacky Website! Crikey...

So your fame is spreading Mr B, and well deserved too. 

Don't keep us waiting too long for the next one, what's it going to be then?

I finally got around to mounting and hanging the war birds. Bits at the ready:

Bits by Ced Bufton, on Flickr

 

This is what I wanted to achieve:

I'd bought a mixture of acrylic rod and decided that the 5mm would be the best - not bendy. I drilled a hole in the top of the frame:

... hung the Spitfire from some invisible thread:

... and realised the length wasn't important as I could twist the thread around the rod to adjust the position:

Note that the rear thread is hitched over the other bits to give me the required angle.

 

Hard to get a good shot but here it is above my desk:

Really pleased to be honest. What a pair of memories.

I dunno Ced

 

The picture is almost superfluous, they make the picture themselves

 

But anyway

 

 

Very fine souvenir of temps perdu  ;)

 

So to speak

Thanks Bill :) Of course, every time I look up I see the wheels too far up in the Harvard. Ho hum. Temps perdu? Relative of yours :D

Thanks Giorgio :)

Ced,

 

I totally missed this build-  some kind of brain fade.

 

I have just read through it.

 

Another great job with a context rich background.
