I'm undecided if I should do these as the same aircraft/markings to show the difference or if I should do different aircraft. Either way both will be done as T4's to show the difference between the two versions.

All the best.

Greg

Looking very well here Greg. I feel that way about the UH-1

I thought it was about time I did an update on my workbench so here is the state of play at the moment.

All the best.

Cheers for the cudos guys.

I don't know what's happened but my mobile is showing me pictures that I posted and the computer two different ones. Please can someone let me know if the last two pictures are a Jetstream and Stearman or a couple of in progress shots of my Cessna build?.

All the best.

Greg

Cheers Iggie.

For some reason I can see the Jetstream and Stearman on my mobile but the two Cessna pics on the works computer.

All the best.

Greg

Well whatever you can see they're all nice builds Greg.

I've sorted what ever the problem was. I deleted and re-posted the pics.

All the best.

I have been tinkering in the loft again. I decided to do a bit of spraying. Out came the Matchbox Phantom. On went the dark sea grey. Also on went the paint splatter and lumps. The paint was good and well mixed. The pressure correct. Suufice to say a complete strip down of the spray gun and with my magnifying glass I found a minute fleck of old dried paint inside the nozzle. One hour of modelling time wasted. I managed to correct the problem with the F4 as the paint was dry (thank godness for acrylics) and then went on to get paint on the Jet Provost. Time to get filler on the Cessna then last coat of blue onto the DC9. All in all a productive session. Pics to follow.

All the best.

Greg
