  3. Hi to all Contact Resine resin accessories have finally arrived for spinners, propellers, controls surface, wheels: the original part (propeller) Now I'll take care of correcting the compressor filter instead: here you can see how the filter was cut with a rounded shape: and here as proposed by the Trumpeter kit: let's proceed with the Kintsuglue modeling paste that will allow me to model the p
  4. And one side more than the other.
  5. Looking good! That is a dark green but I think you are right to go with what the guys who research this stuff think. All of our eyes are biased by decades of whatever color the model kit box illustrators decided to paint with. Same deal with the pale gray Zero that is so common in illustrations and never existed in fact. I'm not looking forward to those outside jobs - the season starts in a month or so here and I'll lose 2 or 3 weekends to picking up leaves and clearing out the garden for winter. Once it starts snowing, more modeling time will be available...
  6. Surely WNW would have rejected the kit with this warp issue, maybe they did? If they had stayed in the game and released it as such, they'd be called Warpnut Wings?
  7. Engine with its initial coat, and some work on the Sutton harnesses. These are the PE ones supplied with the kit which don't actually need to be that flexible because I know from experience how thick and unyielding the leather sections are! And a little "in-cockpit" entertainment of one of my training flights!! PS Should you have the patience to watch most of this, ignore the last 7 minutes or so because my Go-Pro fell off my helmet!!
  8. Not much in the way of modelling has been happening as I've been busy on outside jobs which need to be done while the weather is good, but I have been plodding away. First up was to get some paint on the undersides which was NMF on the real thing, I can't imagine that it was polished so I went for an aluminium colour, in the end after airbrushing some samples I settled for Xtracolor High Speed Silver (X038) and was pleased with the finish. It does not show up very well in the photos though. Next up was some careful masking and making a handle on the undersides so I could hold
  9. I gotta admit I was skeptical about Tom's view that the extreme wear at the wing roots was caused by escaping battery gasses, but after looking at the photos above, I think he's most likely 100% right. Still, the idea that all this corrosive stuff was free to roam about unchecked inside the wings gives me the willies because of the damage it does over time. But, if you think about it, all the mechs were concerned with at the time was making sure that their airplane was able to get to the target and back on that particular day. Nobody was concerned with the long game. Leaks and drips and cr
  10. I will be watching this Ryan! Do you have a specific tank picked out? Cheers, Tom
  11. Excellent progress! The silver and green cockpit is very distinctive. Yes, it is exciting when major parts start coming together at last! Alain
  12. Step one complete. Some of the seams, bolt heads, etc I will clean up after drying. g
  13. She is a big girl, that is a 1/35 Jeep resting on the upper hull.
  14. Here are some reference books I have on the subject.
  15. I got it to work but I had to click on the link which opened the image and then copy and pasted.... How is this better?
  16. Thank you for all this gentlemen. All excellent suggestions. I was looking for a one-volume history, hopefully more recent than Chris Shores’ book. I should have been more clear. It was meant as a thank you gift for a friend who is Finnish, and involved in aviation and the restoration scene. The one Brad suggested looks good, but it’s listed as unavailable. Hopefully I can find one in Finland or Europe. I’m always amazed by the depth of knowledge on this site. Thank you! Richard PS: Have to get the Caudron C.714 book for myself. An enormous book dedi
  17. I think I've finally figured out this particular edge case now. It seems that you're copying a rich text URL from somewhere, which contains hyperlink formatting. The forum software sees this as a generic URL, rather than a link to an image, and so only gives you a URL, rather than an embedded image. Using the 'Insert image from URL' feature gets around this, but the secret to avoiding it in the first place is to make sure you only copy a plain text URL. The main way to tell the difference is that if the one you're copying already has an underline beneath it, then it's rich text, rather than pl
  18. red Dog is correct: you just use the 'Insert image from URL' option once for each image you want to insert. But to answer your question, I think I've figured out this particular edge case now.

  19. Looks good Kev...........I agree that any trepidation I have re: a build usually goes away the moment the main parts all start to click together, and you can see some major build hurtles clearing. Looking forward to more!
  20. I've fixed them by using the 'Insert image from URL' feature, available from the 'Other Media' drop-down menu at the bottom right of the post edit window.

  21. Thanks, Kevin. What did I miss in the posting?
  22. So far (for me) open your hosting site left click your image, click copy come back to this sight, click paste and that’s that....hth?
  23. Late to the party I'm afraid, but happy birthday Maru (and other fellow LSP birthdayers); I hope that you continue to enjoy creating memories with your family in lovely Fiji. Kindest regards Derek
  24. I have gotten the lower wings to a point where I need the fuselage to align some details, so I have started on the fuselage. The seats are mounted on two rails running through the fuselage. The seat backs are aluminum and the rest is wood, except for the control stick assembly. The basic fuse sides. Don't know why these links are showing and not the pictures?
