Shivers i have missed so much - i see Dave is 2 up already!!

I have been following with the odd bit of modelling and very little time to post. Dave, Mick, Marcello, Ron and Fernando lovely builds. all very exciting and odd subjects to a tracky person.

Work for the month is opening up so i have more time, this weekend i made some progress on my Gull. I started with a preshaded frame:

And managed to get some yellow onto it. I decided the fade yellow i bought I was nice for the non-metal areas (for all I know this aircraft may be all metal construction anyways and decided to go with some straight yellow I already owned for the metal/solid bits. Hopefully the two yellows will look interesting with some preshade showing to break them up.

I had to fix a seam to on the cowl joining (post the above photos), and one I had re done the preshade and one coat of yellow by nozzle snapped off with the thread in the body of the airbrush L. New nozzle and removal tool on the way from blighty and a $25NZ iwata clone being shipped from trade me (kiwi ebay), so tools are down fro the time being. Looking forward to sealing and getting the deals on to this little beastie – this may not be my last wingy thing!!

Keep at it guys

Good evening all and thanks to you all for forming up in the Mess in such an orderly manner.

I haven't been idle, just away doing another course so I have been peeking in but unable to comment. Some MAGNIFICENT work going on, (I'll comment more over the weekend).

I have made a start to the Swordfish. Taking it away with me actually saved me a few quid in the bar. The pictures however, are on my phone and are not of the best quality, so I will get them downloaded and cleaned up and then hopefully post up progress tomorrow.

Chin Chin,
