  1. Do take care of yourself - you nearly got killed! That's got to make a hell of an impact on you Richard
  2. It's a Sunday afternoon tradition in the UK. It isn't clear scientifically why donning whites and standing around in ritual patterns with bits of willow in a close mown field makes it rain, it does make the place lovely and green though How are you doing Brad? @BradG Richard
  3. Oh well, that explains it. English cricketers are famous for their rain dances Richard
  4. What -WHAT!! https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10700236 Arrgh - why!!!!! And do I need one? How much is it... Richard MORE: What's mysterious meat doing in there - it belongs in a kebab!
  5. I think the error is in trying to paste it as a link. That isn't necessary, just the plain text of the address Richard
  6. There's something wrong in this: [img]https://i.postimg.cc/3N6Gwv4D/271905659-271174475041786-5984115739575511035-n.jpg[/img] First off, you don't need the <[img]> tags, just the address of the image. I'm guessing you used the "Insert image from URL" button In Chrome, I searched for the image using the https address you gave. Opened the page, right clicked the image to get it's address. I copied that then pasted it straight into my post Posting images is actually easier than it seems from the various tutorials, you only need the image address Richard
  7. I can't see anything greyed out on the instruction sheet: https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/3/9/1/1019391-64-instructions.pdf I think that's how Roden usually identify unused parts. So it's may be the same plastic Richard
  8. And once again a build stalls at the painting stage. I'm losing count of how often this happens for me Richard
  9. I'm sending you a jumbo sized box of encouragement, Paolo - just in case I've had projects stall at around this point due to 'just one more thing' to fix. I'm sensing this might be close. So, if it helps, just grab a handful of encouragement from the box. You are doing great and I'm looking forward to seeing this one over the line Richard
  10. I'm 99% sure the graffiti was painted for the photographers, mostly at their request Richard
  11. So, does the image show a Pathfinder aircraft? Richard
  12. Can I ask about this again: That Lanc has got a streamlined lump underneath the fuselage - is it a coastal patrol aircraft? Richard
  13. On night raids, you'd have no chance of knowing where your bombs landed. On day raids, I imagine you'd be more interested in turning around and getting home I doubt many Lanc crews ever saw where their bombs landed Richard
  14. I have used cable cores in the past, I use reels of copper wire now as there is a bigger choice of sizes Top tip! If you cut the wire into useable lengths, say 6-12" long, you can straighten them with a couple of pairs of pliers. Grip each end of the wire and pull until it just gives (exceeding the elastic limit of the material). You'll now find the wire is dead straight Bigger wire, you need to hold one end in a vice Richard
  15. There seems to be a bridle attached somewhere around the rear wing struts Richard
  16. Maritime patrol Lancs? Richard
  17. More likely it's the lift raising the tip of the wing rather than dihedral (which I think is a static thing*) Interesting though, innit Richard *I'm probably wrong
