I don't think decals will cut it as I want it to look like its written in dirt with a finger.
As I have been weathering it with heavily diluted acrylics i'm hoping I can use a toothpick dipped in thinners.

Hmmmm, yeah.  That'd work.  Nice logo. :thumbsup:
I'm planning some RFDS whiffs into which it could also be fitted.
Congrats 'dude.

I finished the Dog Jeep yesterday.
Plan has always been to glue it to a piece of slate along with some figures in order to make a display base for my Chad Grach.
The aim being to enter it into expo in a few weeks.

And then I picked it up by the corner of the slate not shown in the pics...

...which snapped off depositing the whole thing onto the concrete floor.
Surprisingly, while many parts came loose (weapons, UC doors, jeep body) there was no irreparable damage other than the male Dog Squad soldiers head which I couldn't find.  Shows how tough the Su-25 is... ;)
It's all back together now but when the pylons came loose they took paint with them which will be tricky to touch up invisibly so it might not now make it to expo.

Other than that I have started work on a new, huge storage/display unit on wheels using (as far as possible) surplus timber I have left over from other projects.

Having dinner at a friend's last night.
Clear sky,  85% moon with a 22 halo around it and Jupiter within the circle.

I'd replace the Mercury with a Hercules or a Taurus at the minimum.

Thanks Gents. The initial route to Republican Spain from CZ was via Estonia then ship to Bilbao. Later some were off loaded in France and had to wait for the border to be opened. The other route was via Istanbul in Turkey and then ship to Barcelona. Thanks to Gerald Howson.

Regards, Steve

Swap Shop / LF: Airfix 1/48 Merlin Instructions
« Last post by silverwindblade on Today at 03:10:55 pm »
Hello all - I have recently been blessed in receiving a complete and unstarted 1/48 Airfix Merlin helicopter. Unfortunately, the friend I traded it with doesn't have the instructions ;__; would anyone of the fine people on our forum be able to scan in the instructions and e-mail them to me if they have them, or if they have unneeded ones lying around, I'll happily turn over some beer tokens for mailing them my way.

Thanks very much!
