  1. As far as I'm aware, it just clears the unread flag on new posts. I have accidently clicked that a time or two instead of the " Time Period ( Since my last visit ) " and lost the new stuff. I then proceeded to use up my store of Anglo-Saxon profanity. Chris
  2. Some reading: https://boxartden.com/reference/gallery/index.php/Modeling-References/Aircraft-Profiles/Britain/WW2/Fairey-Barracuda-Mk-I---V https://www.scribd.com/document/173010201/Warpaint-Series-No-35-Fairey-Barracuda Chris
  3. They could and did carry bombs under the fuselage. They were fitted with US 1600 lb. armour-piercing bombs when they attacked the Tirpitz in Norway. Chris
  4. Are the bombs for under the wings or under the fuselage? Chris
  5. To be honest, I didn't check on the start-up sequence of a Lanc. I just remembered that I have a Pilot's Notes booklet. As for the wiring set up, I only vaguely understood what you said. Other than very basic wiring knowledge, that may as well been printed in another language. It's looking good, though. Chris
  6. You should check on the usual engine starting sequence on Lancasters and your engines are rotating the wrong direction. Otherwise, a bold and ambitious plan that's looking good. Chris
  7. Though I haven't been there for a couple hours, it was still working for me, way up here, on the Backside Of Beyond. Chris
  8. Nice! I like the way you've painted the upper turret base. All the pics of the first release show the lower area unpainted/left clear. Do the new instructions call for this or was it just you doing it right? Chris
  9. If flying night-time missions then the suppressors would be fitted. The suppressors were removed from aircraft that were flying daytime missions at the end of the war. Chris
  10. I use this modified sewing needle in a pin vise to apply superglue or Mr. Surfacer, especially if only a small drop/dab is required. Chris
