    CANicoll got a reaction from MARU5137 in TELFORD 2019   
    I'll be helping to set up the SIG 32 stand on Friday afternoon/evening as well, and working a few shifts on Saturday when I'm not doing a bit shopping (VERY short list this year - but I say that every year.  I am luggage space constrained this year however - thankfully!).  The US Northern VA IPMS club folks are all staying at the Premier Inn at the top of the hill (not next to the train station).  I think we have about a dozen folks over again this year.  Telford is a much better show than our Nats, although Chattanooga this year was probably the best show we've had in the US in maybe three/four years.

    I'll be at the show on the HMH Publications stand, in Hall 3 I think. We'll bring our brand new book on the C-130 ! Very happy about this one, the first copies were delivered at my office just an hour ago. And I'll bring a Me-262 and Fw-190 A8/R11 in 1/32 for the stand. Feel free to come say hello!

    Im not sure about that, but I know if I didnt have to worry about money, Id be at Telford with you guys for SURE!   Its still on my bucket list, and I'm a bit sad I never got there during Iain's reign of 32nd Sig.

    CANicoll reacted to Phartycr0c in TELFORD 2019   
    I for one am gutted that Iain has stepped down. It has been a pleasure and I sincerely hope that his association with the LSP / 32nd sig continues in albeit a visiting capacity. 
     
    As a facilitator he has performed relentlessly with Talisman like properties.
     
    I look forward to the 32nd Sig / LSP stand continuing to be a regular feature at Telford under Roy's direction for the showcasing of the large range of aircraft subjects we are now lucky enough to have available to us as modellers.  
     
    I will certainly be attending Telford this year although my build count has not hit anywhere near the possibly overoptimistic levels I outlined on the first post for the navy theme.
     
    I will be bringing the Dambuster Lancaster Not a Naval subject, although water was involved .......

    CANicoll reacted to Jennings Heilig in What's the difference between a mk IXc and a Mk XVIe Spitfire   
    The short answer is: the engine.  The Mk.XIV had the Packard Merlin, and (AFAIK) all of them had the slightly bulged upper cowling.  The 'c' vs. 'e' is referencing the wing armament.

    CANicoll reacted to MikeC in What's the difference between a mk IXc and a Mk XVIe Spitfire   
    The difference is who made the engine.  Mk IX had a Rolls-Royce Merlin, Mk XVI a Packard Merlin.  There were subtle differences in the cowlings and some other details, but basically the IX and XVI were the same airframe.  They even had the same Supermarine type number (361).  If you're going to use a Tamiya Mk IX for a XVI, just don't buy aftermarket rocker covers with a "Rolls-Royce" legend.

    Well, that was a longer than expected absence!
     
    I injured my back at the beginning of July and sitting down for any length of time was excruciating for twelve weeks or so. The enforced horizontal rest has meant that life, work etc. has pretty much been on hold. Now I'm just about back on top of everything else, I can try to pick up where I left this build. Picking the positives out of the nightmare, it did give me ample time to think about where and how I do things - so gone is the board on the coffee table in my lounge, the dining table has been pressed into service and now does something useful rather than just giving me something else to keep dust-free (I live on my own, so no annoyed other half to worry about) and I now have a proper, organised space to potter about in.   Plastic sheet over the table so I can scribble notes to myself and wipe them away when done, white disposable paper sheet that is remarkably good at stopping tiny bits travelling too far, and storage on the left for major things that doubles as a pin board. I bought a couple of cheap tool chests (there's another one behind where I'm standing, next to a beer fridge) so I can organise the plethora of smaller tools, parts, decals etc. that don't need large shelves.  The sharp-eyed might notice that I'm already looking ahead to build no. 2.... 
     

     
    With little else to do other than plan and plot, the shelf of doom has swelled into a room of doom, lol.... I have enough in there now to keep me going for a good long while.  
     
    So. what progress?  Well, "progress" pretty much means stripping some of what I'd already done, because I wasn't happy with it.  The new spinner is much better - the stripe actually gets to the tip now, and ends in a reasonable 'dot'.  The prop is pretty much done and both have had a coat of satin varnish.
     

     
    I might give the inner rubber boots a glossier finish and/or treat the outer part of the blades to a tiny bit of leading edge weathering (it is supposed to represent a restored and cared for warbird, after all) once the whole thing is done, just for some contrast.  We'll see.
     
    Not much to show at the moment, but at least I'm back on it!

    Thanks, Chris. The muzzles are made by Master who do an extensive range including full-length barrels.  They're widely available via on-line stores

    CANicoll reacted to Dennis7423 in HK Models 1/48 B-17G!   
    Based on other sections of the kit, I believe this one was rather hastily built. However, a little putty and sanding, a little polishing and rescribing, and that join will disappear. Fortunately, it's on a natural panel line, so that helps things. If it builds like their 1/32 kit, it should fit together quite well! While their kits aren't Tamiya quality fit, they do fit together very nicely.
