Just thought... I've got the surgical knife, with new blade; swabs; mask; IPA. Why am I going into hospital when I could do a little DIY ?

Think I need to stop watching Dexter. [rofl]

The way the NHS is going in Wales that scenario is not too far fetched

Well just received the Neo by post and first thing I've noticed is that it has a good weight to it and the trigger button is not wobbly.

My gut feeling is that I like it, it feels more comfortable, and easy to hold. Will give it a try later.

It looks and feels like a far more expensive brush, Iwata must have made certain it is well made and engineered to put their name and a long warranty on it, and the reviews are very positive.
Let us know your thoughts on it after you have had a spray Nigel.

Those were the main reason I chose this one, without burning a great big hole in my pocket (makes doing all those extra nights at work worthwhile). Will look later for a nice cleaning set and one of those needle tip guards, that is open on two sides, making cleaning of the tip easier, whilst still protecting it. Bobby used one in one of his AB product reviews.

Just enjoying a nice cup of tea, in bed, putting some extra touches to my Minecraft world. I've had 1 night off and back in work again tonight and then weekend is a no go on modelling.

I use a crown cap on my airbrushes, they are great for getting up close for fine lines, but I still have to remove that if I want to get really fine lines, the gaps in the 2 prong ones vent the air and narrow the "cone" of spray and still let you get right up without fear of wrecking the point, I can't get one of those ones to fit mine, a shame because as you say it makes wiping the needle down while you are spraying much easier

Pete

Ps

Mine craft is great, my son has it on his Xbox and has made some amazing stuff.
It's the Hospital this weekend isn't it, I hope all goes well, will you be up and around pretty quickly or do you have a long recoup ahead ?

Thanks Pete To answer your question I can only say "how long is a piece of string?"

This is the latest photo...


have to sort out the fit of the canopy.
Just been adding a lot of weathering to the wings and quite happy with the result. This model has been quite an experiment.

Looking at the photo it looks very impressive.....just don't look at this model 'live'.[cool]

Can't wait to get back to a large scale, I can appreciate, now Pete, why you like them. [thumb]

The kit looks good. Nice to see it moulded in grey styrene, as opposed to the old Monogram brittle black plastic. Detail looks great and i'm going to boost it with a few Eduard sets and a nice set of metal landing gear. This has to be my all time favourite plane. I'm almost certain it's the one you saw at the Telford show.

They also got me another model plane with no cockpit, my son seems to think it's so cool. It is the new 1/48 MQ-9 Reaper Predator (Drone). The wingspan is an incredible 16" long, from wing tip to wing tip, and can carry a full weapon load (def need metal gear for this one, I can imagine the plastic ones will end up looking like Nora Batty's legs [rofl]).

If it is the same kit I saw at Telford it builds into a great model, great looking aeroplane

It's looking like drones are going to play a huge part in ariel combat in the future, I can't imagine pilots being replaced completely, but for bombing and recon I have no doubt they will be remote controlled
The predator is very cool looking armed up though, and that wingspan is massive lol !

Pete

Ps

Good luck with the op, and keep us posted on how you are doing

Nothing happening today and have just got some credit for my Tesco modem, so I can have a video link with my family in England and have a nose on what's going on in the forum. Sundays are usually quiet and i have a few photos to upload that I took on Friday morning, whilst the sun was bright.

I got a friend to upload them to my photo bucket to allow me to pick some and add them to the forum.

These will not be on this page as they are the final photos of the completed model, so check later for the Final Reveal.

Have to go back up to ward for my dinner. ..the ice cream and jelly is amazing! [thumb]
