Great start Ted I have set aside 4 hours a day for the next 4 months to make sure I dont miss 1 single episode mate. Cancelled my SKY subscription and told the Kids not to bother coming home for dinner until January, so you will as always have my undivided attention.
Cheers 
Gary

That is true Gary, we love Ted's threads but we only have around 3,000 more comments before he finishes his build!!!!! Oh well the rest of the world will have to subscribe to Sky whilst we enjoy "Ted TV".....priceless.....

And ted tv is exactly why I have purchased a small tv station and will soon be broadcasting via an old old Chinese satellite! I will feature the antarctic bikini squad and reruns of Julia child in between WIP posts. To get off the ground all I need is $50,000 from 10,000 dedicated fans (per month) to launch the satellite into low orbit and pay the rental fees! Spread the word!! Thank you for your patronage.

Although I think Kenny is right and I have the pilots side consoles switched, the dry fit with fuselage was OK. have to dbl check with the ejection seat but I will trim consoles if needed. I thoroughly welded them to the tub and clamped them overnight! Monday was busy with family business, so hoping to get to the bench later today??

I don't think the consoles will notice at all once you trim them Ted, not much can be seen in the cockpit and did you say you were going canopy closed on this one ? If so definitely nothing untoward will show ! As for Tedtv can I suggest topless weather girls, it might put a light hearted spin on the Sharknado reports that you have over there

Nigel that looks cool. Can only imagine how much that must have cost to build though.

that R/C is spectacular! wow. those guys amaze me.they do dole out some serious $$$ to do that hobby. I used to build the tissue covered balsa planes back in the day. all free flight--no motors or R/C.

Pete, yes, I will have closed canopy and pilots so everything will be kind of smothered in. topless weather girls? Hmmmmmmmmmm. you got the sharknado covered with that kit you built just before the Phantom GB.

 my poor mom fell and broke her arm yesterday. head of the left humerus [upper arm], non -displaced, no surgery needed, just a sling till it heals. I am her nurse and the prognosis is GOOD. I am going to sand, prime, and AB her later, then the weathering. kidding. love my mother and have been caring for her the past 12 years. just another hurdle for us together. We are mother/son but also good friends.

NOW.........working on the ejection seats a bit. started by breaking one side of one of the seats! ham fisted clod!! each seat is 8 parts and together they make a pretty nice looking seat. no after market. checked the fit in the tub and its a go. I did criss cross the pilots consoles but no fit problems due to my error. hope it does not cause a crash!!!






on to the next seat then back to the tub and getting it painted.

one small instruction sheet omission. no co-pilot stick shown in any step, but there is a hole in the tub floor in front of the copilot seat, & the part K27 is a cockpit stick so I glued it in. the seat goes in with the stick in place. now the co-pilot is feeling better!

Nigel--thank you!

Flying left must be related to US NASCAR where they only turn LEFT. LOL

I shoot the pictures with my new smart phone--its the 2013 Galaxy S4 Zoom. it has a 16MP  CCD and the lens is a real 10X optical zoom, not a digital zoom. the camera has about 30 pre-set settings from macro to fireworks, as well as 1080 video.the camera also has image stabilization built in. I may try some video later? I think that the real secret is using a LOT of light over the bench? two 100 watt swing arm lamps about 2' from the tabletop, plus a 4' two bulb daylight fluorescent fixture directly over the build area.

I process [crop, color correct, brightness/contrast/mid-range, resize] in Adobe Photoshop elements 9. that is also what I use for the montages and titles, arrows, etc.

Ted,

Thanks for that info on Photoshop, I like the results.

You are building the F 4, it's not quite an instruction sheet omission. The part, K27, is listed as not being used as the co-pilot doesn't have a joy stick. Other versions of the Phantom that are going to release do have one. It's looks strange for there not to be one, and I questioned it at the time.

I managed to find photos of the cockpit on the following link..

If you are having the model with canopy down, and pilot figures, then leave it in Ted.

Nigel,
thanks for clarifying that! shows how much research I did not do [seriously]. GREAT reference photo.I saw a hole in the floor in front of the co-pilot seat and was positive I had to stick something in it. Shut up Pete!! LMAOWROF
