Hello to you all.
Like Jack has let you know everything whas going over my head a time ago.

So im happy its going better and to be back here.
Regards Mark and thanks for all you support

good point, there are several reasons for the relative low price, one of these (not the only)
is that i thought of all those like me aren't able to paint figures (and i'm not interested to learn.....)
and maybe they aren't happy to pay high price with poor results.
In addition design and make these figures totally in 3D allows you to bring down the price of the master,
i believe that the figures quoted before by Aviattic are hand-made by artists of the sculpture
and i think have high production costs that affect obviously the street price.

Wow, you didn't waste any time getting into it ! I recommend using the opaque vacform canopy supplied as a guide to getting the fit right and to act as a sort of mask for the coaming - but you'll work all that out. I'll watch your progress with keen eyes !

Hi again Tim.
I've been thinking long and hard about your situation. What I do not know etc. Also I have been remembering my history as I began to fall ill, the confusion that set in motion and the later diagnosis.
I have just gotten off the telephone with a medical professional working in a haematology ward at a leading hospital here in Sydney. I wanted to make sure I remembered correctly, and get an idea of what a Dr must say. At least in Australia.
Often a Dr may take a blood sample and speak along the lines of what the Dr is trying to rule out. Often a patient will hear a word such as cancer and focus on that.
I am not referring to your wife or yourself during that appointment.
More often the case I am pleased to say people do not have cancer. Usually the eventual problem is usually treatable.
My experience to begin, was not that I was tired in the mornings, but rather during all my waking moments. Being that your wife has been tired in the morning first made me think she may be hypoglycemic.
First thing is you just await the first results. If there is something they again wish to check out, one of, or perhaps both of these tests will be performed. A bone marrow biopsy or a pet scan.
Bone marrow biopsies are usually quite fast and not overly painful to begin. Pet scans are time consuming but offer no pain.
Now these are but two of the tests that follow after the initial blood results. Different diseases have different approaches.
As I said earlier, there is no point worrying yourself too much at this initial stage. These steps can take time for them to eventually find results. In my case from April to September.
If your wife is standing and then feeling light headed and experiencing a loss of balance, that she may be falling over; these are known as a "postural drop". These are caused by low blood pressure. T avoid this, ask her to go from lying down, to sitting on the edge of the bed for at least 30 seconds. Breathe deeply, then stand and make sure she is steady before heading off.
Be careful not to throw the word, Cancer around too easily. And beware of those who do.
Again I offer my best wishes.
etendard reacted in Came in third!
The rundown in the Nov issue of FSM for 1/32 aircraft most wanted is:
1) P-51 Mustang A/B/C
2) B-24J Liberator
3) F-106 Delta Dart
4) F-101 Voodoo
5) B-26 Marauder
I can see the (relative) desire for a pre-D 'Stang but...for me....*yawn*
Same for all the large airscrew planes. The Hun series jets get little love in this world as it is. Time to change that.
The 1/24 most wanted was interesting as well:
1) F4U Corsair
2) F-86 Sabre
3) P-38 Lightning
4) F-4 Phantom
5) F6F Hellcat
I'm in violent agreement with the first two.

etendard reacted to desmojen in Silver Wings PZL 11.c
I thought some of you might like to see a few photos of my build of the Silver Wings PZL kit. It was built for, and has been featured in Airfix Model World magazine (October issue). I won't lie, it wasn't an easy build, but I can enjoy the challenge that was mastered, and am truly happy with the finished model. I added some rivet detail to the fuselage and a couple of very minor details in the cockpit, other than that it is as supplied by Silver Wings.
Hope you enjoy the photos,
etendard reacted to Dandiego in Scratchbuilding techniques
I have scratch built 3 different models. The first was crap, the second was pretty good and the third I am quite proud of.
Bottomline, you have to build to get better. And you have to start somewhere.
Start with something easy and progress to your dream project. Check out my 1:32 Skyshark here on the forum. I was learning every step of the way. You will too.
