Glad to hear the news about the dog, and sorry to hear about your roof.

We have a barn needing a new roof (12-15000), which contains 3 1/2 large round bales of hay which have to be kept covered to keep them dry.

Like the 'Winders.

Did heavy rain spared you ?

We receive more rain in 3 days than in 2 months....

I'm glad to live on the top of a cliff...

Fingers crossed for your hay...

sincerely.

No it didn’t, but I don’t think we had as much as you. We are also glad to live near the top of a hill but our fields are very soft with lots of mud around the gates.

Stay dry.

Hello Dears,

Not a lot done yesterday but she start looking like a 1965 Phantom...

IMG_20210715_210417 IMG_20210715_210400

I'll let the paint drying thoroughly before more masking...

Nooo Seriously, in fact 2 more days of evening work will protect my paint...:whistle:

Beside it, I started another tedious job....

Painting the edges....

What an idea Sailors !!! They surely did'nt think of the modelers....

Have a great week end Gents !! 

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

Here I'm with a bit of a problem...

Maybe, the Toom Maestro will give an advice... Huh, it's you @giemme

I have to respray on the wing because I fell short of paint...

Please Gents, if you see something wrong, tell it ...

I'm not satisfied, but I did'nt see the reason....

Then, as I get to the LHS to buy some H315....

Yes, I did it again...

I'm helpless.... No rehab for CC....

IMG_20210723_214843

Seeing how the parts are prepared...

We will have some different versions in a near future...

What do you think about ??

IMG_20210723_215130

Take care.

Sincerely.

Looks like the wings need one more thin coat to blend in the pre-shading properly, CC. Very smooth paint job, though  :clap:

Sorry to hear about your roof CC. I read the news about a lot of floods in Europe. I sincerely hope you’re ok over there. Is there no way you can claim on house insurance?  😔 Splendid news about the hound however. 🐶 The phantom is looking good. I concur with Giorgio that the wings and tail could do with another few light passes to blend them a little more. 
A new red box too I see. 🤪 I almost caved yesterday and bought three kits. (We must stay strong brother) 😩🤪😜

I think the ‘summer’ weather has been much the same over the whole of Western Europe- abysmal! We’re starting August here with a forecast week of rain, roll on autumn I say.

I’m hoping for a slatted wing version of the F86 but I won’t be holding my breath.

Hello Dears,

Well, I'm not really present these days, but my father has a serious health problem...

He's now in palliative unit, waiting for a call from the hospital for a month today...

It's tiring and though to live with...

Some evening, I take my modelling stuff to the kitchen table an do nothing...

Then, I have to emptying his house, a Huuuuge load of work...

Hence, I'm burned out... Plus the family burdens...

Well, enough crying over myself...

Masking a lot and ..

The Toom received some white paint...

IMG_20210817_220602 IMG_20210826_201328

More to come soon !!

I'll try at least !!

Take care

Hello Dears,

Playin' Wack a mole again....

Now, I'm struggling in Wheels !!

Luckily, mines stay quiet....

IMG_20210923_230838

Now, I use the fuse extenders from the Monogram Skyraider...

The Monogram Mk 82 are wrong, so no regrets at all and one more Frankenkit of a bomb....

IMG_20210923_230842

Stay safe Gents, let's keep carry on !!

Hello Dears,

I treated myself a bit with something VERY unusual...

IMG_20210927_165157

Then, there are no more doubt about my Phabulous Phantom (I talk about the bird, not my rendition of her)

IMG_20210926_234017

Too tired to move my bench today, invited tomorrow, soooo, see you on friday !!

Sincerely.

Stencilling a Navy Pahntom is a hard task, but we'll worth it - keep going and think Zen,  CC :winkgrin:  :D

Hello Dears

No, no, I did'nt fell asleep on my Phantom, let's say that, stencilling is almost done....

So, as in this TV show... I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored.... And so on...

Cannot reproduce it here.... Young ears are around...

IMG_20211017_011235 IMG_20211017_011219
