The F-86 is currently in repair depot after losing a battle with Catzilla. It has a broken off drop tank and a badly cracked canopy with one of the poor ground crew losing both arms an a foot! The other guy is hard at work though.

The Follow Me Jeep faired worse though with almost total destruction and the driver decapitated. 

I really need to fix them some day.

However, Congrats, really good builds !!

Sincerely.

Looking good, CC - looking forward to some primer going on! :clap:

 

Ciao 

I still have to add some bits in main wheel bays...

And then adjust the rear canopy since I altered the "Hunch" to include the complete resin tub....

It was deemed impossible, Sooooo, The only thing I was left to do is actually doing it....:giggle::giggle:

I think that I'll use the AK glossy white, I tried it and start to love this brand of paints...

Sincerely.

Okay Gents, it is not the Rhine river...

Hi CC, Phantom coming on well, nice looking river, nice looking Lorelei, looks like spring coming on well, summer now I guess, things looking up? :) 

Take care,

Steve.

Second re-start and I’ve still missed them so far.

I do like the Demon, and I have the Grand Phoenix version somewhere, so I’m expecting to pick up some tips.

 

John

PS: shouldn’t there be a dog in that photo, looks like Mrs CC is holding a leash.

Me again.

Looking at the seat with your Demon, it looks like an American type and if you are building it as a -2 you’ll need a Martin Baker Mk4. If you don’t have one lying around I’m sure I can find a spare that you can have.

Hello Steve,

In fact, we are in our seventh month of winter.... 

We've had a few sunny day, we've had a walk in the forest, following a tiny tortuous and steep river...

IMG_20210603_152952

Weather was fine, we then get to the hotel, rain again....

On the following morning rain during the breakfast... We took a trip to the river Ambleve where my Loreleï take her stance....

Get back to the car on our way down, Complete thunderstorm...

We get in a brand new museum, While we were visiting, another gale came down...

IMG_20210604_134850

See, a wet Panther....

We then just have a little respite, ate an ice cream beside the river Ourthe...

Get in the car on our way home under heavy rains....

Seriously, should we really believe that we are on the eve of summer ???

Hello Mr G !!

So, if you approve the interior of my F-4B, it's a relief for me... 

Good weather ?? See above .... Some sunny moments is more precise...:rofl2:

Hello John,

Thank for the tip...

AZ and Grand Phoenix are the same kit in fact

I'm doing a VF-61 (Nooo seriously ??) FJ-3M in fact 

We get a bit of time out my Lady and me, so the dog were at home with the teens....

Then, the terrain was not a good one for them (not better for us but...)

Sirius is too old, Nokya is wounded and we finally know what's going on with her...

And angel is far too tiny and she hate water....

So no leash but her tiny pocket for survival items, A cell phone, a bottle of water and a pack of fags....:rofl2:

I have the Naval Fighter serie for the Demon... It's helpfull...

And Shhhhttt, I think that I will at least receive a second F7U.... 

It smell Cutlasses for 2022....

 

Well Gents,

A bit of plastic now ??

yesterday was a Jolly Roger dedicated modelling evening...

IMG_20210605_214633

I fixed my scratched part to the rear of the cockpit...

A bit of cleaning up and it will be good, the canopy is now closing well !!

IMG_20210606_002034

More to come soon, I think the Tooom will be the next RFI, but there is a british pony closing in behind...

So, Who knows ???? Breathtaking is'nt it ???

Have a great end of week end...

Stay safe !!

Hello Dears,

Evening work week again, but yesterday, I've been lucky enough to find this old kit....

IMG_20210711_110514

Seeing how @hendie found it funny, I've had to try it by myself..... :frantic:

More to come soon... Seemingly my 1/48 comet has landed at the LHS....

I hope you all enjoy a Farniente sunday.... Modelling is obviously included in the niente of farniente....

Sincerely.

Primed and some paint sprayed in fact...

Not before 2022, I have a promise to keep up...

But it smell like twin tail building thread in some months...

And a crazy one ... Have faith...

Vampire bashing.... Both Hobbycraft and CA....

That will perhaps please both @The Spadgent and @hendie

Obviously, one of them will be turned up in a Sea Vampire.....

 

Working on the 'Winders too...

 

IMG_20210714_233700

More to come soon !!

 

The bad new is that continuous heavy rain falling down...

Old CC castle with its rotten roof is suffering a lot....

Buckets are placed in the some strategic places....

I have to find 40.000£ quickly.... 

 

The good new is our Great dane has a complete recovery from her stroke...

Thanks to the continued efforts of Mrs CC...

See you later...

Sincerely.

CC
