Would that be a British Standard Dollop or a Metric Dollop?  ;D
I had  exactly the same thought! Or perhaps our revered compatriot uses Apothecary's  Measures.

British Standard obviously Kit. I think the metric equivalent is the "Dollopi" not sure about that but I seem to remember it being used in some Euronorms * that were prating on about standards whilst I was gainfully employed.

I think our US cousins use the short dollop ?

Oh how I miss the daily delights of Euronorms and Commission Journals  :rolleyes:

Progress  ;D

Hurricane now just needs to be varnished which I'll get done on Monday hopefully and then her clear parts adding and she's done.

The P-72 is coming along. Started painting the upper colours today and at the moment she looks a tad bright but that will settle down once the second colour goes on.

Started on another Airfix Hurricane Mk I fabric wing  :thumbsup:. I just wanted something to work on whilst finishing the P-72 and I didn't want to get into any involved builds until after Telford. Which will probably be post Christmas as Telford can leave me a little "modelled out" at times  :mellow: This one will be out of the box but Greek.

Regarding the Hurricane one thing I would advise is to get as much assembled as you can before painting as the tolerances are very tight and even a layer of paint can play havoc with ease of fit. I used Maskol on some area's for my current build and it helped quite a lot.

Really threw me there Jim (lucky I lost weight  :rolleyes:) and then I realised you were commenting on the Oriental Dollop  ;D

Oriental Dollop  ;D

Oriental DoRRop!   ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Well the Hurricane is almost done. I got the canopy framing done today so she just needs a couple of bits and bobs finishing and she's done in time for Telford.

Probably won't get much more done between finishing her and Telford and then I normally suffer a bit of a hiatus post Telford for some reason ?  :-\

Hangover perhaps  :drink:  ;)

More like it being the focal point of the model year, lots of walking around, lots of looking at decent models, lots of chatting and inspiration, so post show many tend to chill out and then its the start of the Christmas season  :party:. Things dont really get back to normal till the new year, as even if you get the mojo back your just too busy elsewhere to put it to good use.

Spot on I think Geoff. Once back from Telford I do need to start thinking about Crimbo
