I’d have been in dead shtuck if it’d hit the Jindivick!  :D

Isn't the drone supposed to be the target? Now I'm confused. (Doesn't take much)

I think the Jindivick's were often used to tow small target banners  or flares out the back, rather than be shot down themselves ............... saves on more expensive Jindivik expenditure I guess, although I'm sure some were used as direct targets also.

 

As for where and how @Martian got his "bit of Jindivick" therein lies the puzzle!

The Earthling is correct, Jindiviks were only shot down for special trials.

Oh dear

 

not sure about this for a good idea

 

 

 

What's he doing?

Damn it looks like he is cutting resin

Ah yes I thought he was, I doubt if this will be a good idea.

 

What do you think?

It is of course this item I got my stickys on earlier this year but I am having doubts, I bet you think this is because I want an hour or two off fixing Walter for the Fleet Air Arm.

 

Now I am less certain about the idea...

 

 

Oh bugger

Now he has done the bottom bit too...

 

But what do I have to do here?

Trust thin slices of resin to pop out when needed?

 

I am scared.

Thinking of form over function G, the shapes look closeiesh and definitely closer than my Frog FAW2

 

Surely its only 'fitting' and any 'old tyme' tool setter and ex toolmaker should be able to get there eventually when fettling the tooling.

 

For info, I still have the part restored Frog kit to fall back on if it all goes titzup.

 

Anyway cant stop, I'm still HU5ing whilst I get down dirty with exhaust covers for on deck parking style modelling for now.
