A drop of Revell green/grey acrylic rubbish in a small square box FGS

Looks adequate for down in the hole

Bracing to add tomorrow, mess bar is open again

lovely job on the MRGB Bill.   I'm just catching up after a few days away and it's always nice to see a perdu post or two awaiting

I hope it's all worth it, but it's only a game anyway isn't it?

 

:)

 

I'm about to build up the framework next and luckily a purchase I made earlier this week dropped through the letter box

 

I like those little machine drills with the Archimedial twist but they are intrinsically very weak so the thinner ones usually die in no time, flat

 

Looking into the 'bay' ready to buyer placements for all my broken ones I came across these

 

Since I and probably the rest of us has a large number of the wider ones but few littler ones I was chuffed (extremely pleased Giorgio) to see I could simply buy a bunch of only one sizes to save having lots of un-needed big ones lying around

 

My 0.03mm drill set

Who needs big unuseableones huh?

At least a picture (of the drills - you can never have too many teeny drills) that I can see!  Or am I the only one for whom most of Bill’s recent pictures show up as the Postimage equivalent of the Microsoft Blue Screen of Death?

 

For the record, not even I would add rivets in 1/72...

 

 

[Apologies for prolonged absence of late; I have been very busy at work, but have also suffered a serious Mojo Failure for some reason - I just cannot get myself going on (of all things) my Lynx build.  There are stirrings of a cunning plan to get me going again, but it will probably be away from the Lynx-fest.  Watch this space.  Well, not this one as in Bill’s wobblecopter thread, but the general BM area!]

Snap, an issue there me thinks.

I hope that issue has now been dealt with

 

Working with my tablet screen this morning, dealing with the drills as it happens meant I clumsily offered Postimage the opportunity to delete an entire gallery

 

And before I could play catchup/stop it did just that

 

This was in a different Gallery

 

And I will be far more careful forever more

 

Crisp we had got the general drift of your mojo depletion, it allus comes back tha' knows

 

I am happy to wait

 

Maybe we can collaborrate on a Lynx with BERPs on it

 

Me in little , you in ginormous

 

Tek tha time!

Braced for action

P1010061.jpg

 

There  is a complex set of levers and braces, brackets and tubes around here

 

I am sticking with this

 

The Airwaves set has a set of swash plate pieces that will sit tidily over the top of these

 

I cannot see any sense trying to replicate this

Good God - that really underlines what a pitiful amount of power those guys were trying to fly with.  A Seaking tail rotor gearbox isn’t much smaller than that thing!

Superb catch-up Bill. :thumbsup2:

Can't for the life of me work out why this particular aircraft seems so attractive but you are making it even more attractiver attractivy I like it even more.

Seconded. That feeling of security when one snaps.

Tha knows there's a reload available.

I went through that during March/April, together with some serious business with work and travel. I'm on the way back now with a few projects recommencing, so lets hope you can do same!

Well no of course, no sense at all in trying to replicate ................. you would do it rather well though methinks .......... just saying.

Like what your doing with the main rotor gearbox, your attention to detail takes your builds to the next level as well as being very informative!

Well Martian, if you say so...

 

Anyway up...

 

Remember this?

 

I was a bit concerned because I seemed to have cut away too many millimotors of plastic just at the back of the miniturtle back

 

just here

P1010471.jpg

 

So I took time out to plan and plot a new bit just for there

P1010109.jpg

bent a piece of 0.080" polycard into a curve then cut a slice out of it large enough to set into the gap

And put it in the hole I left before

P1010110.jpg

 

This looks fine now so I can get on with fitting the new upperworks to the lower fuselage and begin adding the Airwaves etch to the engine grilles with Gator's Grip

 

More later

NOTES TO SELF

DO NOT PAY TOO MUCH ATTENTION TO THE ATTENTION SEEKING VOLUNTEER 'SUGGESTERS', THERE IS A RISK THAT THEY ARE ONLY DOING IT TO ADD CONFUSION

 

This was not expected to happen but as I looked at the photo on screen something occurred

P1010111.jpg

 

I picked up the model intending to do no mo' than fix the gaps between the halves, as you do, when the flat uninteresting and totally wrong for any version of H-19, S55 or Whirlwind said to me "CUT ME"

 

Out came the Minidrill and bits and off came the bottom front of the engine cover

 

There is a semicircular cover around the P&W inside there, so not an awful lot of stuff to add and this is intended to be rudimentary visuals only

P1010113.jpg

 

Tidying the hole ensues...

 

As does removing the lozenge shaped other part of the hole, looks as if there is a heat exchanging dooberrie inside that

P1010115.jpg

 

Some bracing and framework too nae doot

 

P1010116.jpg

 

Elusive searching has begun

 

Yes I did cut it out before extensive research so I cannot ONLY blame you lot for egging me on

 

dammit, must be my fault after all

 

ciao

The most natural next step I would say. These things are best not left undone!

 

And I just spied an Auster Antarctic box in the background there, something else coming soon or a past project perhaps..........

Ah yes Terry, that would be  this one

P1110147.jpg

 

P1110144.jpg

 

Finished a while back and now the 'property' of the Army Aviation(?)SIG and displayed by them at Telford last year along with the Scout I also donated

P1110385.jpg

 

P1110382.jpg

 

This did not have any Airwaves stuff aboard except the rear bulkhead

 

Both were old builds in here, beggared if I know how to find links for 'em sorry but there are better pictures than these taken when I was trying to work out ways to transport them...

 

As for the H-19, if further proof of my lunacy was required I suggest I just provided it  :(

Nice Auster and very nice Scout indeed. AS11's too. Must get to doing a Scout and a Wasp myself one day soon but have been patiently waiting for first the much talked about Freightdog Wasp in 1/72 (I have seen the masters), and then the even more anticipated S&M Scout and Wasp both in 1/72 and Wasp in 1/48 and Scout in 1/35 ................ but its all gone quiet again ........🙄

 

You are not mad Bill, just devastatingly keen!

Yes Terry I saw and was allowed to handle the masters but the production of clear resin glazing's difficulties seems to have killed a very promising project

 

I am not sure whether the S&M ones are basically the Freightdog ones restarted

 

I got pee'd off waiting so I made my own

 

If you want a Nimbus or two let me know, I might find a casting or three

 

Or four, I do not expect to make another now in 72th scale

 

After I made the Scout I had a break then decided to make the Wopse, when I did that I made castings of the primary bits, jet pipes and compressor stages in case...
