But realistically Mrs_PR19 won't be getting any better, it's a condition that slowly deteriorates and we'll just have to stick it out.

As we say Downunder, "Bugger!"   Look after her and yourself, Kit.  Our thoughts go out to you.

OK, cause of demand I am using my special super powers as moderator to grant a two week extension to the Sci-Fi Group Build.   There will be no extensions after this.  This means that the Group Build will now cease on Sunday 15 October (Pacific time - my time - the real time  :thumbsup:).  I believe that is Sunday 14 October on the other side of the world?  Willing to corrected for that.

British Plastic > Chinese "metal."


Dolla sto' hacksaw is a pile of junk but it got the job done. I won't go into details, but the thing is poorly made and even just sawing on plastic was dulling the piss out of the teeth.


That said!!! I got the things cut loose and now the wing halves have been glued together and even had putty applied to the one area on each that needed it.

Fuselage is also together after filing away burrs and testing for fit. It goes together well and the design drastically cuts down on the visible seem on top! NICE! I'll have my hands full with putt on the bottom side of the wings so any bit of help I can get is appreciated.

No real plan of action on this one...  I just wanted to get started, and I have.

Wait til you guys see what I have in store for the paint scheme... not only the scheme, but the method itself... stay tuned for that. It ought to be a real hoot!

Perhaps put some "pusher" type turboprops on it and turn it in to a Marineflieger Maritime Patroller. Extra lumps and bumps and a mad boom out the back :)

I reckon the Fleet Air Arm guys that helped them set up might have even suggested a version for the a British MPA  :rolleyes:
