Title: Swept Wing Meteor

Rooting around, I've got together these components. The main parts are from a limited run Meteor 8 kit bought ages ago. The swept wings are the outer wing panels from a Frog Sea Vixen. After my enquiry about the Meteor F5, lets see what I can do with my limited skills! Progress will be slow owing to other commitments....

Dear god, that's the Merlin Meteor!  I've a feeling he may have copied the original Frog F8, which despite it's age and primitive rivettyness isn't that bad.

Probably the ideal basis for this type of thing as the plastic is THICK!

[img  width=640]https://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s219/percy30/IMG_0109_1.jpg[/img]

Does anyone know how to make the images smaller? Anyway, started on the wings today. A lot of putty and sanding will be required!

When you put in your img tags, add a space and width= with your desired size (320, 480, 640, 1280, etc.).  640 and 1280 are usually good sizes.

So the first two pictures are:

Well, I've reduced the picture size to a friendlier value (thanks for the advice) and now to push on with the interesting stuff!

I open a big photo in Paint, then resize the pic there. Once it's resized, save it either as is or give it another name so you can keep the original.

Yes, I resize all of mine to 800 px wide and resave them with '-800' in the title so I know which one to upload.

Mine go camera to p.c. (to crop) to Photobucket, to Word and then site and I don't have to do anything. No idea why/how, but it sits me  :thumbsup:
