Nice mojo reset going on there, Stuart. And beer and cats help!

Wow! Back with a vengeance, Stuart. (What, no Vengeance on the workbench?)
That FROG Tempest rang several bells. But I was mixed up - it was the Heller kit that I built a long time ago. Looks very similar.
Great to see all this activity.

Cheers,

David

It's really good to see you back at the bench, Stuart and best of luck with your new job. Plus a revision to your forum user name too - this really is a fresh start! Is that NT '262 being a bit of a pain to build?

Thanks Celt, but less of the skills - I don't have any, just 'happy accidents' :-D (I finshed the Hellcat a while ago - I need to post some pictures).

Thanks!

The Heller kit is a bit more refined than this in some respects, like actually having a cockpit and the back of the cooling duct open.

No Vengeance yet - I do have a Avenger? ;-)

Thanks Shaun - It's always good to have the mojo back. Especially today - I handed in my notice, and will henceforth take every oppertunity to stick it to my new boss before I leave in March (Please please please give me gardening leave!)

Yes the Sir T thing has been bothering me for a while - time for a change :-D

The Me262 is a bit of a mixed bag, It's a nice model that I'm sure will look good when done, but it has totally crap fit. I've had to use a ton of filler around the fuse and re-scribe everything. There is no way the cockpit and wing will fit as per the instructions and well - I've kind of run out of steam with it. ALL the wing joints need filling now but I can't be bothered at present - I'm working on the engines but the fit is about the same.

Time to start something new :-D

Cheers!

Stuart

If they don't give you gardening leave, just take a kit in to work......

It's a great feeling being able to move on from a crap job/boss, been there and got the t-shirt on that one :roll: Good for you but three months is a long notice period - hopefully they won't make it too awkward for you.
