  2. "I Froze my Brain up in Canadaaaaa"

    Right now, at 21:10 hrs., it's -20C with the light breeze making a windchill of -25C. Just waiting for February, when the real cold hits. Chris

    Thanks. Chris
  5. Airfix Typhoon - 5V X

    Nice! Did the base come with the grass on it or did you put it on the base? Chris
  6. Airfix Lancaster BII - 72nd scale

    Yes it would. Also look for pictures of late model Halifaxes and Wellingtons. These would most likely had the collectors painted black, too. Chris

    Couldn't get there Christmas Day but no problems Boxing Day. In fact, I was there just minutes ago. Chris
  8. Cleaning sprues

    Many years ago, at my workplace, we were required to wear safety glasses while out in the plant. There were boxes of little packets that contained cleaning clothes for the glasses. They looked just like the moist towelettes you get a fast food restaurants. I always managed to keep a small supply at home. Unfortunately I have run out now and I'm retired so do not have access to more. These little clothes were great for cleaning parts. Chris
  9. Airfix Lancaster BII - 72nd scale

    I'd got for a semi-gloss. You could try flat black, then rub it a little with your finger. the skin oil will shine it up a little bit. Chris
  10. Airfix Lancaster BII - 72nd scale

    Bristol Hercules exhaust collectors were not copper. They were steel that was heat-stained. In fact, on night flying Bristol-powered aircraft, the collectors were over-painted with a black, stove enamel type paint, to hide the hot, glowing collectors from German nightfighters. Chris
  11. Another test of Flickr

    Using the EMBED option. Okay, that worked. The EMBED stopped working on Britmodeller, even though it's hosted by the small host as ARC. Chris
  12. Cyanoacrylates - need advice

    I just use acetone-based fingernail polish remover. It's cheaper and you get more. Chris
  13. ARC Air

    As some of the old trees around the harbour age and die, they are cut down. The folks doing the tree removal are finding material inside the trees that got there as a direct result of the explosion. Chris

    Wow! I can't believe this famous cataclysmic event wasn't mentioned jn WW1 Events - this date in 1917. It was the largest man-made explosion before the the atomic bomb. Chris
  15. Black Friday Disappointment

    There was some unusual Black Friday excitement at our mall. http://www.fortmcmurraytoday.com/2017/11/25/fight-ends-with-man-bear-maced-mall-evacuated Chris
