Dry paint and cold coffee. Need a fresh pot and a piece of pie.
It is indeed. Probably the most common brass model of all time! Multiple runs over the years with some 6,000 pieces being made. Glad you like the dome lounge . I am actually working on a pair of diners at the moment, but they are still in the planning stage. I have several decisions to make on what the finished models will look like!Very Nice, ALAN -- Is that one of the 1950? SF class? made by PFM?
Marvelous work on the diner!
It's what you call an "insider joke". The target hasn't answered, or he's gettin' p'd off with me pickin' on him to be the "Butt". I did soften him up with a nice airplane vid, so he shouldn't complain too much.Toot. I would ask you a “Penny for your thoughts” about the coin less subject but you know the case. Very nice pics you posted
Weathering hides a multitude of sins!Sherrel. Only you my friend would think that you mean Skittles right lol
Thanks to all you that threw me likes and complements.This evening I decaled a old Atlas O Boxcar I painted it last year one side didn’t turn out very well after I put the Champ decals on I gave it a light coat of clear the decals kinda had a reaction to it but I’m going to leave it. Take care

Supermarine was the name of the maker, they competed in the 1930's in seaplane racing, which is where the Spitfire grew from. The Mk17 in the video was indeed larger (longer fuselage, larger tailfin, not sure of the wings, because of the later, increased capacity, Griffon engine) also has the extra twin 20mm cannons fitted which I think were also fitted to some of the Merlin engined ones (smaller) to even them up with the ME109's central, through the spinner 20mm. As they came in to the air war late, their main use was shooting down Buzz Bombs, although as one of my English teachers (a Dutchman) who had flown them in that role, told us, destroyed his aircraft when it blew up and enveloped him in the explosion. They then developed the practice of flying up alongside, putting the tip of their wing under the flying bombs wing and flicking it off stable to crash it. Have read this in several accounts.TOOT - (RAY) I really enjoyed that Spitfire (supermarine whatever) - what a beauty. For some reason that plane looks larger to me than a "plain Jane" Spitfire - maybe just the angle?
