Title: The Aft Cabin: The Captain's lost whifs-The Captain's Conundrum of Clutter
Post by: Captain Canada on January 19, 2015, 07:00:03 pm
Lost, forlorn, and otherwise forgotten whiffs of days gone by. Some will be from the old site, others unseen, others never finished.

First off, remember the 'old days' when you used 35mm film ? That's right, we put little canisters of film into our cameras, and that usually gave us up to 24 tries to get a decent pic ! Afterwards, you took said film to be developed. Sometimes you waited hours, even days !

Here's a few prints I found the other day.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v729/buzzhemply/DSC_0570_zps25fa7a67.jpg) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/buzzhemply/media/DSC_0570_zps25fa7a67.jpg.html)

A single seat Voodoo fighter. I had envisioned it all camo and such but took the easy way out and painted it like a 104 from Germany in the 70s Air Div days. Hasegawa 72nd scale RF bird.

Matchbox F-104 as an updated CAF bird.

Another Matchbox kit I think. Was supposed to be a wild weasel.

A collection of Arrows from the old shack. Not sure how they all ended up.

An Attack Tutor. Or Tutor Attacker. Why not ?

My old Super Lanc. Another one that was never really finished. Made from the 48th scale Tamiya kit. Used the props from a second kit and the fins are scratch built.

The Sea Whirlwind. Airfix kit with Merlin engines and props from some old P-51B models I had built way back when.

Thanks Nils ! I have a few boxes of half starts and RW builds and such. I want to photograph those as well, for posterity. And then maybe break them down into components for future whifs or sharing etc.

Great work.  :cheers: The all-green Voodoo looks cool, as well as the lo-viz Tutor.
And the Sea Whirlwind with the original nacelles is a nice comparison to my conversion with full Mossie engine pods.

I just wish I had even a picture of one of my better models or dioramas. Like the one of the CAR (Cunningham Anderson Restorations) shops where there were old well worn race cars from NASCAR sitting out back stripped down and worn, in the stripping shop being disassembled, the engine and driveline shop, the body and paint shop and the reassembly shop plus some out front ready for their new homes. All in 1:24th scale. All in a three foot by four foot display.
2nd wife got it all from tiny cast pistons and rods to the two hauler trucks.

Title: Re: The Aft Cabin: The Captain's lost whifs-Another Voodoo
Post by: Captain Canada on January 21, 2015, 08:35:04 pm
Thanks again guys. I found another Voodoo in the cave it was on the floor for some reason. Cats, kids. Anyway, I'll post a pic tomorrow.

The automdioram sounds pretty wicked ! Too bad it's gone. No pics survived either ?

Hey look ! I glued one of the tailplanes on last night. It once had landing gear and a HARM under the fuselage. I hope to fudge the gear doors back on and add the missile, and hang it up in the old room.

I find it interesting that I had the same hunter/ killer idea for both the 104 and the 101.

Post by: Captain Canada on February 14, 2015, 08:56:00 am
Here's my idea for the twin seater. It was always going to be a low-level anti-radar bird, competing against the CF-104 community for supremacy down in the dirt. I  did some measurement using the Revell kit with the rotating door, and it seems feasible. A load of four Mavericks in the door, and then a rail with a triple ejector holding the bombs as well as the big Standard or whatever they call it.

Too much ? Not enough ? Just right ?

Thank you sir. I have fund a few of the bits from that Sea Whirlwind, so I hope to restore it as well. It will need new landing gear and props/ spinners. Maybe contras from the Shaks.

A suggestion, as I have seen that the Voodoo is the Matchbox kit with the retrofitted box camera nose: why not hang a pair of big HOBOS or Paveway GBU under it, making the camera a 2nd generation sensor turret (A.k.a. Pave Moon 2.0?)

Yessir Stirling X I think. I'd have to go find it again. I have a story I need to write before I post the pics. I've been putting it off and putting it off. I take writing seriously. Too seriously. Every time I start I over think it, think it's goofy, edit, add / delete details and then quit.

Like everything else I should just do it and get over myself.... :banghead:

I love the US CF-100 in SEA camo.  Someone here did a profile of that I have it saved, picked up the kit and got the replacement interior from Obsureco.  Just need the bomb load and then get in a SEA painting mode.

I used to be the same way when writing books. Do it, read it, re-do it, edit, re-write. Then I just wrote it out, editede for spelling and sentence construction then sent it to my test subjects to read. Now I have a small but happy group of readers that are egging me to get the first book published. Working on book two.

Check the parts box for a couple of Phantom inner pylons. Attach them in front of the main gear and you'll have a good place for the Mavericks.

As alluded to in my regular blog, here's a few pics of my conundrum. I do believe that a large home is conducive to clutter.   :banghead: As is borederline ADD and whatever else goes on inside ones head. A busy life with diversified hobbies probably doesn't help....

Here's my little table where I do most of my work. As you can see, stuff everywhere. Kits recently purchased, spares for the GB, never ending Harriers, bits to support the eventual dio and photo shoot....

(http://i722.photobucket.com/albums/ww226/Axo_Smash/p1_zpsbcoapl6d.jpg) (http://s722.photobucket.com/user/Axo_Smash/media/p1_zpsbcoapl6d.jpg.html)

Turn to the right and through a door and were into the junk side of the basement, utility room / hockey room. Here is my main book shelf, and old curio cabinet and my Grandfather's Hurricane. Plus other assorted junk.

Now, if we turn around and head the other way, looking from the curio cabinet we see the hockey room, or Dyte Hall as we call it. The boy does all of his stick drills here, and when it's cleaned up he can have three or four friends and a goalie going at it. I bet a million slapshots have been taken here

Take those two F-18s and make your own X wing F-18.
The worst part with such a large box o' stuff is where to start.

Hmmmm...X-wing eh ?

I was hoping to take a pic of each one, and then somehow sort them out afterwards. Still a couple of boxes to go  :thumbsup: Already a couple I'd like to fix up, like that B-17.

IIRC someone on another site used the front portion of a B-29 in a 50's style spacecraft.

I like the look of the PRU blu comet.  What's the canopy form?

Lots of feedstock for future Whiffs there, those that aren't already Whiffs of course.  ;D

Thanks guys ! I think it was from a Mustang or an early generation Harrier.

Thanks Cap'n.  Looks more Harrier than Mustang to me.

Panther's camo Blackbirds got me thinking about my old build, Bluebird and the Pink Lady. One for each of my children.

Cheers guys. As I recall, the Bovrils were there for SuperTom. I was sending them down to States for him as they didn't sell it here.

I look at this topic again today, sorry, and I am puzzled by this beauty.
Is this a DH Comet single-seat fighter? So nice! :wub: :thumbsup: :bow:
(If confirmed, we must warn our Comet expert) :unsure: ;D
