I'll be slowing down myself because as of today my 2 young princesses come and visit for nearly 3 weeks. :D :D :D I only get to see them every 3 months and usually only for a week, so this time of year is extra special.

09. December at 11:56:04

Michael Hickey Yes, can you believe I only paid $8.99 US for it and only $12.99 US for the Challenger 2 another Trumpeter kit. Both from lucky models the decals for the Abram cost more than the kit. ;)

Can we expect one of them on your bench in the near future?

Michael Hickey not till after next month or so. I have to finish the F-14 and all the weapons, carts and vehicles to go with that. But I'm really itching to do some armor, what about you scoring 2 free Leopards that's lucky.
09. December at 16:22:37

Holger Kranich Yep, that was really luck for me!
I got a message on FB and a guy i know from school asked if i´d like to have them. And after lunch he came to my office and he said they are for free! :) :D
I immediately offered him a coffe and a cigarette! But i dont know if i will put it on my bench in the next time, we will see...

I like reading your comments on the various albums that guys post. You always have an encouraging and positive word to say, so much better than reading. "Good one" or "Nice Job" . The immediate effect is instant and long lasting.

Good on ya mate LOL :)
07. December at 13:43:36 Share Permalink

Michael Hickey Thanks Kerry for noticing, I try to say more than just a couple of words as I feel it's more encouraging to the builder if he/she hears a bit more about their build. :D
07. December at 20:15:58

Kerry COX Exactly right Mike. I think you have noticed that I try to do the same. And at times, I'll bet that you have felt quite humbled by some comments you have received at times.

Better something nice than "Your a dork, get off" or similar LOL.

Cheers mate.

Kerry COX Hey Jules, Thanks for your comments mate.

I love this "Instant messaging" we have here.

I have just had a look through all your posts on albums mate, and not finished yet, but I am super impressed wit all you have done.

Cheers and "Don't go near the yellow snow" LOL

Mike. I noticed your bang handles and If I can make a suggestion here, I will give you a way of making realistic pull handles out of black and yellow cotton, twisted together with PVA glue until its like a candy bar twist pattern, and let dry. When dry, cut the length you want and the look is exactly the same as seen in real ejection seats. I will post an album of some of the ones I have done.

10538
Michael Hickey Thanks Kerry, I read somewhere you did this for your handles and I gave it a go but I'm just a mere novice and couldn't get them to look like the expert ones done by yourself. I guess I just have to keep practicing and then I'll get the knack of it, I'll defiantly give it a go on my next Cat. ;)

Michael Hickey I think I'm going to take the handles of and try again, I think they let the seats down. :S
05. December at 01:41:25

Kerry COX Mike, I am glad YOU said that about the handles because after all the stunning work on your engine and the trolly and everything else you have done, the handles were leaving a spot on your sheet. !

The key to making perfect cotton ones like in my album is a pin vice.

There is some weight to a PV and you put the end of the cotton threads into the jaws and tighten the jaws on the cotton.

The cotton should be no longer than 12 inches, then smear the pva all down the length, get it really wet with the stuff, then, holding the other ends with both pieces of cotton at even lengths, let the pin vice hang down like a plumb bob and then spin the PV between your fingers like you spin a top until you see a "barbers pole' appear, then when you have all your twists done, you then set the whole thing aside in a straight line under tension to prevent it unwinding while it is all twisted up and let it dry long enough to handle.

In the sun is best.

when it is dry enough to touch, release it from the holding devices you may have used to keep it from unwinding while it was drying and you will see it gently start to 'untwist' a bit.

when all the 'untwisting' has stopped, cut a length off, drill a small hole where you cut the plastic one from your ejection seat, big enough to take the tip of the newly made cotton twist, dab the end of the cut length in some super glue and put it into the hole you drilled and repeat the same process for the other end of the "loop".

As simple as that. DOH !!!

Michael Hickey Thanks Kerry, I'll give it a try and show you guys the results.
