Flashy parts & tackle mentioned in replies. Flashes his sword and screws things up. Wot sort of forum is this.
Tony bought by mistake a vacform it was back in the warehouse in days it was frightening.Nice work Laurie , I think the amount of flash being removed qualifies this as your first vac- form ! The cockpit looks 100% better and the decals are excellent , I used two six decals on my Britannia 737 and they were amongst the best decals ive ever used, so you'll have no problems with that part of the build at least !
Hang on Gerry & you may see a Laurie mess. Love the very flashy descriptive comment.Just caught up with this - marvelous job that you're doing, could well imagine what mess I'd make of it!
Certainly watching and hopefully learning how to make a flash model from a 'flashy' kit!!
Doubt that you'll make any sort of mess of this - you'll probably give us mere mortals a masterclass in how to create a silk purse out of a sows ear, quick as a flash!Hang on Gerry & you may see a Laurie mess. Love the very flashy descriptive comment.
Gerry are you Flashman from Tom Brown's School days ?
Thanks to you both much appreciated.
Probably goes back to the early planes, where the pilots seat was put into something that resembled a cock-fighting pitLaurie, the 'cockpit'...I mean the office console looks great...why is it called that? Is it because it has a joystick? The descriptives in the English language can conjour up double meanings.
The canopy decals saves masking.
Apparently not. But then perhaps not or could be or not at all or even made up supposedly scientific or even -----Probably goes back to the early planes, where the pilots seat was put into something that resembled a cock-fighting pit
Deviate at any time Richard on my topics quite happy & will join in. All I can say in the "cock" subject is Maquette's Herald is a "cockup".I know this is deviating from your Herald post but why the word 'Cockswain'. Might it be derived from the wind vane that had the traditional cockerel at the top that inspired such a word for someone who would steer a vessel direction as the wind blows...I'm just guessing here.
Anyway its interval time as we wait for Laurie's next post on the Herald as it looks a tough nut. I think all the kit gave him was the basic shape except for the instrument panel which looked like something I stepped on. And if what he's done with the added details to the cockpit has shown, I think we can expect goodies coming soon.
Thanks Mark I will get there.A lot of work in that one but looks like it's paying off, nice neat job on the windows
You are right Tim flashiest piece I have ever seen.I think you deserve a medal for working on this one! Just think, if the manufacturer could eliminate all that flash he could probably cut his production costs by 50% in raw materials savings alone!
Yes been practising on that. Rick. Printed ou on paper & practised cutting out the BIA bits. The B is the problem. Ordinary paper not so bad but decal paper is a little more difficult to get a clean cut. Think it will be scissors.Not to add more work....but if you are concerned about color matching the tail, why not paint it also and then trim the letters out of the decal sheet and place them on your perfectly matched paint job? Just a thot. Rick H.
