I joined it back in 1978 - and I've still got my original copy of this poster (but with tatty corners from pins and removal of Blu-Tack!):

This dislike of beautiful chopper models is obviously catching!

 

Looking very good from here Bill :)

C'mon, admit it, she isn't and never was your girlfriend...

....you simply saw an opportunity to gratuitously re-post her picture! :yes:

beautiful chopper models

Back in the '80s, the local ATC squadrons provided Farnborough Air Show's 'manpower' for distributing programmes, brochures and various other items around the trade stands - as well as for the organisers, cadets could also be 'hired' to perform similar duties for exhibitors...

...the cadets had to have staff supervision, of course, and I remember spending considerable amounts of time personally making sure Westland's requirements were taken care of - which, of course, had absolutely nothing to do with the "beautiful chopper models" who'd been hired to man their stand for the week...😉

No

 

You really don't

 

 

Honest, most of the work I am doing now is to restore some kind of order to the mistakes of earlier in the build

 

:(

Sorry Bill but you are being way too hard on yourself. Its turning out to be a very fine model and that's an order from your Martian overlord.

The overlord can speak

I can respect the order but wow, it goes against the grain

 

I realise I see the grebbits when you all see the model but hey they are my grebbits and I can hate 'em if I want to

 

Thank you all for helping me get towards the finishing line with this

 

I can't hardly wait to get started on the Bilvedere...

 

Grey and Green it will be, so a bit like...

As above.  So why don't you? It's yours. I would be very proud of a singer with that sound and that lyrics for a country. Inconceivably (Danke Google!) here to write that line for my country in the 80' and now and probably forever (hopefully) :

A few more fettles have been fettled

P1010218.jpg

Basically Andy Deeley's Airwaves wipers are on now

 

And the controlling cables for the winch/hoist whatever dooberry

 

None of the struts in either the Matchbox set nor the Italeri set made sense on the model

 

P1010212.jpg

 

The cables are clearer on the first picture, doh...

 

The struts were mostly from Evergreen 0.020" rodding and after struggling with photos it seems the unit is slightly askew on the real Wokka so I do declare "THIS IS IT!"

 

The cables were from invisible thread painted in various metal colours to represent the metal-ish look of the real thing

 

On the left side I have begun playing with the windows

 

Yeuuukkk

 

Anyway it is wot it is

 

P1010213.jpg

 

It is even less impressive on the blown bubble windows, I promise you

 

Anyway I am off to have a look at the Bilvedere, should we have a fred of our own?

Bill - she's looking better than good in those photos.  I am looking at the same Chinook as you aren't I?

 

we can all be our own worst critics at times - didn't you just tell me that over on a Wessex that we must not speak of thread only a week or two ago?   

 

Keep plugging away - you're almost there.
