Iíve had several projects lately where the paint job has given me fits. Usually involves crazed paint. Sometimes involving a different paint over another or sometimes a second coat of the same paint. Just random madness. Makes a guy want to scream.

My old HP printer, the first one that I started to print decals with, not the one that expired last year, gave very similar results, with distinct 'banding' of large colour areas. It seems there was no solution other than to throw money at the problem and buy a newer, better printer.

I don't know enough about them to say if laser printers are more likely to produce better results than inkjets I'm afraid. Mu gut feeling, having seen some laser printed results, is that they are better at doing that.

Thanks!
Instead of winglets, I have considered a biplane layout, with short span as well:


But that would be too much close to a model I already made, 1/72, see http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,45223.30.html

If I ever get a Boeing 727-100, I'm doing it as the D.B. Cooper Hijacking aircraft of Northwest Orient Airlines.


Someone did a decal sheet for that aircraft, maybe Drawdecals? Of course you'll have to build it with the aft airstairs down.....  ;) ;D

This afternoon a naval Lynx flew up the Thames. Strangely it had a radome under the nose and what looked like a German cross on the side.
Why would one of these be over here?

I know they are up for replacement by either a new Lynx Wildcat, the H-60 or the NH-90 soon. http://www.defense-aerospace.com/articles-view/release/3/196738/german-navy-to-replace-21-sea-lynx-asw-helicopters.html

Saw it going back out to sea this afternoon. Maybe there's a German Navy ship out there and the captain was off to a jolly night out?  :cheers:

Forgot to mention the London Air Ambulance we saw landing in Parliament Square on Tuesday. Dropped in very sharply and took off 20 minutes later.

Has to be it! Cursed. Most of it probably my own fault but there were more than a few things that I've done in the past with no problems yet went wrong on this build. Ah well! I can't wait to get to the next one. Each one of these I knock out is more stuff learned and more practice and sciencing done.

Time to make a racing airliner.   :wacko:

Late afternoon very low near Shobdon airfield, an RAF Airbus Atlas; I assume playing games with the local special forces

Damn, that would be nice.  ;D

I need to start playing the lottery ever so often on the off chance I win it.  ;D
