  1. Thanks Harv. We Aussies are a little self deprecating towards ourselves. It is our culture. This differs from America which lacks this. In general Americans are positive towards themselve. And very hard working. Where as me, an Aussie would rather watch the cricket. Oh and drink beer while watching the cricket.
  2. Last night I spent 4 hours carefully studying photos of Franks and Tonys. I copied directly from photos. Not from one aircraft but from a collection. Every bit is actual weathering. All weathering is by pastels and Prisma and AK pencils. I prefer the Prisma due to being strong. I love AKs but they break, I can no longer use the smoke pencil. I have to lighten the gun smoke. You can see how it is way too dark. This is an experiment. Trying not to use an airbrshush. (It is interesting to learn how people think about their models. For example, I was talking to a modeller in a store. He told me he doesn't like weathering because he will buy the model once and doesn't want the danger of ruining it. Fair enough. Me, I don't care.)
  3. I also love my Iwatas. What I find interesting is that I prefer both my Silverline and HPC Plus over my Infinity and Custom micron. The Silverline is beautiful and has a safer nozzle than the Infinity to protect the needle. The one advantage the Infinity has is the exposed needle point which allows one to wipe it more easily, but in so doing puts the needle point in a position to be damaged.... I still have a long way to go before I can use all four at their optimum potential. Including my lovely little Badger Sotar. Which incidentally a similarly exposed needle point.
  4. I think he was just squirting them. School holidays, bored and nothing better to do. The Custom micron cost nearly $700.00! The needles were also destroyed. I had to replace each. The kid also lost the rear section of the HPC Plus. Chris had a second hand one. Had he not it'd be too expensive. Better to simply buy a new one. But all good now. I had an Infinity and Silverline, plus the top Badger as back ups. I can't complain. I am always prepared for the worst you see.
  5. So here is my modelling plan. I quickly complete my Tony and Frank. All they need is gear connected and radio wire. It should take a day. Given how few parts and the fact I fell head over heels in love with it upon opening the box, the HK Meteor will be next. I just placed an order from Hannants. Eduard interior. Eduard seatbelts. Eduard mask. Master pitot tube. Xtradecal Meteor F-4 Overseas operators #4. The package should be here in 2 weeks. It looks a great kit and even has a nose weight. Hopefully both my new friends end up benign. If so it is only the liver damage. The massive damage is the most scary. I reckon I can talk them into giving me a transplant. Easy! I get both Iwatas back next week. I used H&S on the Frank and Tony. I will use Iwatas. Unsure whether to do NM or camo. Camo takes too long.... I will likely do a metal job. I am so glad I don't have dependents. That'd be tough. Thanks guys.
  6. All I know is this. The stock gets flown to you like a butterfly, and stings like a bee at the register. IHTH.
  7. Hi guys. I had a good night's sleep. I dreamed of completing my Frank. It turned out really nice! I must try that. The rest of my dream was me attempting to rig a camel. Yesterday was a bit rough. I am in again next week for further tests. I will be okay. I've seen worse!
  8. I have no idea what really happened. Apparently it had made it's was right up to the trigger. Everything was frozen stiff. Chris at Iwata had to use pliers to open everything. He had never seen anything like it. He wss gonna send everything back yesterday but I asked him to wait until Monday. I will take photos. This is what happens when one loans things out. My mate wanted to compare Iwatas to his Badgers before purchase. No good deed goes unpunished.
  9. Check this out. One of the results of my drug trial. There were 600 in all. 599 were on it 12 months. Due to the seriousness of my case, the doctors requested an extension. The trial cost was $25,000 USD per month. Happily the company agreed and my case was extended. This extension was 7 months. I want everyone to understand further tests may prove me well. Fingers crossed. Possible cure derived from the experiment.
  10. Thanks mate. It remains to be seen if there are treatments. I am very respectful of science and scientists. I was lucky to live amongst scientists for quite some time. Every day my respect grew. Indeed science and those who practice it have proven the greatest achievement of human kind. Sadly much science is thwarted and attacked by other human creations. None of which gave us medicine, flight, space travel etc etc. The past appears fearful of the now. Strange how the human world works.
  11. With regard to opening credits. At least as of episode 2. Thoughts?
