CC, you’re talking in tongues again…. This message has now been forwarded to Bletchley (again) for the cipher boffins to work their magic. I await their response with some trepidation.

I just try to stay politically correct...

You did'nt remind our Puffin mascot ??

I think that there is no need to remind you about the goats....:evil_laugh:

Both 2 are necessary to a good nasty corner party....:evil_laugh:

, back in the real world.........

 

I have managed to get all the outrigger structures and gondola struts painted on the two Takom kits. Although this was a time consuming process using a good old fashioned hairy stick, I found it both therapeutic and nostalgic. Why? Because I chose to break out some of my original Airfix paint for the job. Partly because the range seemed to have the colours I had in mind and partly because it was a trip down memory lane for me. Once I had cracked open the tin, the smell of my childhood hit me and I was that five year old Martian again. Before starting I made sure that the kittens were asleep as I felt I could do a better job without their "assistance".

 

The P Class is now ready for decaling but there is a small amount of remedial work to be done to the paintwork on the Q Class following the repair to the control surfaces mentioned a few days ago.

 

Thanks for looking.

One additional requirement for a return to childhood modelling would be a small transistor radio tuned to radio 2 which would emit an atmospheric interference  "whistle" all evening whilst I was listening to "sing something simple" and the shipping forecast.

 

Aah, happy memories!

White spirit lifts the spirits! I know just what you mean. The Zeppelins are looking beautiful.

Ah yes, many a school night spent listening to the whistling, phase-shifting Tony Prince and Kid Jensen hamming it up, sponsored by Peter Stuyvesant, flogging cheap coffin-nails.....some nights you could even get through a complete song!

Childhood, that time of innocence......mine was Methylated Spirits, bonfires and freshly poured tarmac....not all together you understand, as this could result in chronic indigestion, but rather, each savored (or in the case of meths, drank)  individually.

Both sky-sausages looking absolutely superb in those subdued colours and tones now Martian. Your therapy and nostalgia is certainly our gain.

Don't forget the oranges at half time!

 

The kittens were sufficiently quiet today for me to get stuck into the remedial airbrushing on the Q Class. If I can get in a decent session on Monday, decaling can commence.*

As clever as an anvil...Or an oyster.... A blue one of course....

And sometimes, he got his mind upside down and get back in predator mode....

Very cute CC (the cat, not you!). The Akron/Macon kit is way in the future as; a, there is no room on my bench because of all the Zeppelins I am building and b, because as some of them clear the bench,I would like to do some non-airship builds as well.

As for the Humbrol aromatherapy, This morning I opened a tin of No12, copper, for a bit of detail painting on my Vanship build.

I was instantly back decades & painting Beaufighter engine cowlings, as per the destructions. It was wrong, but we didn't know it back then.

Yes I remember it well. That was exactly the image you cast when stood proudly on the poop, beard flapping majestically in the salty breeze, scanning the beaches for miscreants terrorizing the tourists in the shallow end. All you needed was the oversized harpoon and 200 ft of hemp to strap yourself to them and reel 'em in. Sadly they knew where the bolt holes were and disappeared before engagement was possible. I'm still deaf from the loud hailer!
