Will do mate.

Apologies and back to you Geoff  ;)

No problems - and that sounds like a dam good idea. I always have a bit of a problem cutting very thin strips off the tape I have. Didn't know there were very thin ones available.

If I need to cut thin strips off Tamiya tape, I stick it to a sheet of glass first and then cut it with a ruler and a scalpel. The tape's got more than enough tack to stand being stuck on the glass and then peeled off again.

I have tried something similar, but with mixed results - I suspect I need more practise.

Well I have doubled the dose of meds and got some modelling done at last. I have done a Finnish Me-109E; the back story is that the Luftwaffe units in Norway got Bf-109 Fs from Africa (they really did and in desert cammo). So  their Emiles were sent to the Finns from the depots in Finland complete with the unit applied winter cammo, and air filters added. Should be ready for the Nats

Like the idea of Finnish 109E's.  If asked and off the top of my head I would have said "well they might have had some". Fool a few people  :thumbsup:

You now have me thinking of C or D series 109's (which I do have kits of) in Finnish or Swedish markings  :thumbsup:

I think an early -109 would look good in Swedish '38 markings with the FC on the fuselage ( the FC was/is similar to the A+AEE in the UK)

Started the Rat Bike, but it's not engaging me so onto the "Shelf of Doom" for a while. Started a Beute Panzer SU-85 but it's more real than a wif.

Well the Su-85 is sort of done, and I've started an Indonesian F-16/79 (Dam you ChrisP). Was sort of wondering about a Czech Kfir/Nesher. I have seen a Bulgarian one on here somewhere. So the Czechs did business with Israel in the 50's - why not a few Kfirs went t'other way???? Perhaps similar to Panther G's Mirage IIIC? :mellow:

Hmmm NATO Kfir's?  I say go for it! And Yes, Panthers Czech Mirage scheme would look good on it
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
