I do not recommend that you put your but plug on the heater:rofl:

 

I fail to understand the connection with what I said. What is a 'but plug' ?  It's okay if you've been on the special brew, I understand.

I think it's 2 fold thing

 

- UK vs Yank terminology

- Context

 

Probably not something that that should be Googled honestly

Isn’t there an in-progress with pics out there yet?

 

Collin

There are a few going, both here in the multi-engined group build forum and over at large scale modeller.

Sorry Tony! It’s probably just a Scandinavian thing. We call it humor.....

But if you do, use two T's.  And make sure there are no kiddos around or you're on a work computer.  :rofl:

Hence my reference to [Danish Carlsberg] Special Brew  - or maybe you just export it and don't drink it!

 

I still fail to understand the connection or joke, beyond juvenile puerile humour. But I'll have a glass of what you've been boozing then maybe it might make sense. 

 

Cheers

How about this for a suggestion?

A new topic on B24 fixes and aftermarket?

The new brass U/C inserts are coming out, Iain has identified the am B17 wheels are good to go and things on here are just getting tetchy with sense of humour failures and dissecting the merits of various manufacturers.

I think this one has gone stale and we need a new, fresh start for those building the kit which is now far more relevant.

:)

 

Oh yes, I didn't need to google it...................ooops.

:lol:

I think Squadron may have been first up with their resin wheel replacement AM.  Both wheels and brass legs I think will be necessary on this bad boy (among other things of course).

Aside from getting stronger gear and wheels, has anyone figured out where they are going to put the necessary weight to set it on its gear?  I’d almost rather do it gear up hanging from the ceiling and avoid the issues altogether.  Also get to extend the ball turret that way.

Good point Dave.

 

I have often thought of how to display these new larger kits.

 

Is it going to be more acceptable to modelers to hang projects as apposed to storing in a case?

 

There is the dust issue, the stress on the components, and just the way they are hung to look professional.

 

Museums hang full scale aircraft, why couldn't we in a way that looks good.

Hey Dave,

Check out 1to1's B-24 build. 7th pic down, he put some led under the floor and ahead of the firewall - HERE.
