Most of the loto color code overspray/bleed areas will be covered by the Martini stripes.
Nice to see the Lego Falcon (below) Ashley brought along but left safely sealed in its box, much to Nigel's disappointment.
Lee: spent my time adding the Indy-tracks to this Gunze Sangyo PzIV f2 James: building the meng T-72B3 the torsion arms need a fair amount of cleaning up as well as the rams for the blade.
A 'Whippet' and is a hairs breadth from finishing.Todays work was all about the Turret Gun, Smoke Dischargers and other fittings.Mick: Tamiya Quad Tractor (an Oldie but Goodie) with the lower chassis being assembled and hand undercoated - we still have to graduate Mick to the 21st century regarding spraying models.Later, the track guards were fixed in place and the forward ERA Framing added to the front hull.Whilst all that was drying Andy also dug out his back-up build of the AFV Club M5 Stuart Tank for some minor additional works (no idea what he did this time).I still have fading of the nato Black to do, and I'll hit that tomorrow.Richard A: " 1st attempt at building an Amusing Hobby kit.Ashley: finished all the painting and decals on the WRC Ford Focus Nigel: started yet another 'challenging' kit with the RPM 1/35th scale MG-PanzerNest mobile pillbox.Vehicles over 10 mph prone to slipping and skidding.Car looks pretty good too!
Paul: has, this time, returned to the hull of the CV-90/40 build after his epic session doing the tracks.
Unfortunately Paul had to leave early.
Later he brought out the Indy Resin Tracks he had been doing.
Andy L: Decalling done on the Basler BT67 and, a start made on a couple of Mini Cooper 1275's.
He has done the finish painting, decaling and started the weathering too.Taking all and trying as many as possible on the day.Colin Chapman, the innovative design engineer, inventor and founder of Lotus, who always pushed the envelope, would be proud.The Tug was actually quite detailed with all the ribbing for the Hull as well as the cabin circus circus hotel casino & theme park expedia area and hull planking - this last part had Nige flummoxed as he needed to bend the wood and glue it as well.Wind, Snow flurries, more Wind and very confusing all afternoon but a vibrant and cosy room here today.The amount of time and care in fettling the parts for 5 bladed spinner is to be applauded.The poor chap was killed over Kiel in 45 in a Mosquito.
Today it's the Capstan winch which has a scary number of parts which seem to assemble really well.
