Oh Dear Admiral of the martian intergalactic fleet !

Do you think that I really need to be exited ?? :rofl2:

Maybe the result of abuse of Fonderie kits

Thanks to remind me the name of Bertrand, Pierre has met him again in Ransart !

Have a good night Dear Alien !

Sincerely.

This thread really has taken on some, how will I say it, "je ne sais quoi", perhaps even style. Thanks Martian & cngaero for my education this arvo, I shall happily reuse those words till people get sick(er) of me. :D

I love your Albatross Martian, though mine, when/if it happens will stay will buttoned up, I'm with Mr T on that.  :)

I've had my share of those words above of late, my MiL threatening to peg out but not quite getting around to it for 2 1/2 months now with massive disruption to our family unit, I haven't used sprue cutters in anger for longer than I care to mention, I really do go to work for a break, there now.  ;)

I don't know about the thread having a bit of "je ne sais quoi" about it Steve, more of a "je n'ai aucunne idee"!

I know, I have been getting away with having "aucunne idee" ever since I did my first WIP here!

As promised a few moments ago, I present the results of a fettle I managed to get in before a somewhat cold and very wet MVS patrol. :rain:

 

I began by cutting some lengths of 20 'thou plastic rod to serve as curtain rails and gluing them in place. The next bit was a bit more interesting. Above the windows there is some trunking which carried ventilation to the passenger seats. A bit like one sees on coaches today. This was constructed from lengths of .60 x .20 'thou plastic strip. Holes were then drilled in the appropriate positions and the vents cut from lengths of Albion Alloys aluminium tubing. To allow for positioning the vents in assorted positions as they would appear in real life, the tubing chosen was of a slightly smaller than the previously drilled holes. When all is painted up, I need to add a pearlescent up light between each vent. I already have a cunning plan for the pearlescent bit.

 

Anyway, enjoy the pictures and as always, thanks for looking.

Thank you Baroness. I have now gone from soaking to merely somewhat "moist". I dread to think what @CedB will make of that one!

Thanks Norman. I have to sort out the radio operator's equipment ( another opening for @CedB) and decide whether it is worth adding the luggage racks, they will be next to invisible, and the interior will be ready for priming. Then it will be back to cleaning up those joints around the wing leading edge intakes.

Marvellous work Martian, just marvellous. Seems a shame to close it up...

Thanks Ced, I am coming to the same opinion about closing it up. I have the pictures so it coms down to whether I think the build worthy of the digital photo frame plan I used on the SH-34. I guess we will have to wait and see on that one as there is still a whole heap of things for me to screw up!

I saw the title of this topic, as was expecting to see a build of a Grumman HU-16 Albatross flying boat?🤨

Sorry, De Havilland is the only flavour we have in stock at the moment.

Splendid work on that interior! I like the mesh in the luggage compartment - made me forget I was looking at 1/72!

Thanks Kev but you should know by now that its a bad idea to dangle daft ideas in front of me. I rise to the bait far too often!🎣

I have been in Oxford trying to sort out elderly parent problems. I would rather have been working on my model but this a case of life being an awkward bugger. ☹️

I'm sorry to hear that those health care matters are still ongoing for you Martian and send my best wishes for a satisfactory resolution. Please excuse my earlier flippancy.

Not to worry Tony, the medical side of things is moving in the right direction. Sadly however, there is no cure for "challenging" behaviour.
