In radiology I stabbed untold thousands of patients with needles, but we were always injecting x-ray contrasts [layman term is dye, but that is actually incorrect]. I give myself 2 shots of insulin a day, usually in my thighs. The needle gauge is 31, you cannot feel it if you do it properly. Butterfly needle sets were very common in radiology--Gauges 18-23. The smaller the needle, the more comfortable, but the slower the injection is, and it can affect the accuracy of the test. I always hated putting catheters in patients bladders and placing feeding tubes into the stomach. O U C H.

Hate catheters, particularly in the wrist. Too often when I slept the needle would bend, so my last visit they gave me a local and put it in my neck with 3 access tubes....now that was cool.

Needed a small op, but so comfortable.

Anyway...moving along, just want to bring you all up todate on the build.

I tried putting the other half of the Intakes on, but beacause it also has part of the fuselage molded in one it just would not fit.
So I decided to seperate the piece.



This needed a very careful cut (along the wobbly red line). The fuselage part fitted a treat, which means all I have to is sort out the intakes.

This is a crap model, but never say die. The gap is horrendous (sorry no photo), so I just plastered in perfect putty and left it to dry.
Now whilst I was sitting in bed, this morning, I thought about all the sanding I have to do.
This is going to be displayed on deck, and 90% of the time the intakes are covered...so FOD time.

I intend to make my own...I am not spending money on this kit...I will rob things in my miscellaneous box..that's it.

At the moment I'm working on these...



...I don't want that misile under the wing...it has to go.

Thanks for looking.

This is a dreadful model and wasting my time.

I've spent 2 hours to make the pylon and nothing fit, even the locating pins don't line up.
The black plastic is brittle and difficult to sand. I'm left with scratched that have to be polished out.

I wish I hadn't started this kit.

So I have decided to put this on the shelf of doom and concentrate on the Skyhawk.

I feel your pain DJ. I should have done that with my 1/48 Monogram 1976 F-16. I am going to put it in a plastic display box and let dust cover the outside of the box! Best wishes moving forward with the Skyhawk. Is DJ going on the shelf also??
