Hi Ian


Yes not cheap but they do look good on certain models.
I havenít done anything on Manxman as itís on my work address bench which gives me something to build in the evening. I used to transport my models between work and home but I stopped a few years back after a disastrous accident where the model I was building got caught between two double doors in my barrack block at Marham and the upper works were ripped off. So I tend to keep one at work (Manxman) and more at home (Invincible and Tiger with the occasional bit of work on MV Norland).
More updates coming tomorrow night and Wednesday night providing I donít get called in off Standby.

Yeah, I kind of hoped Iíd get some work done on Manxman last week but the C-130J Hercules fleet had other plans- more bird strikes, recovery from lightning strikes, and a mysterious fault as to why the engines wouldnít start on one of them meant I was working 12 hour shifts swapping from line work to rectification work and back again! So inconsiderate of the great green flying skips! {-)


Hopefully this week will be quieter and the Manxman will be worked upon. :-))

If only it was that simple! :}
It turned out to be the mission control computers not talking to each other! At least it turned in to a Avionics snag instead of a mechanical one!

More like black square box out, replacement black square box in... followed by hours of functional testing! You certainly wouldnít want to mess around with two aircraft batteries (28v and probably four times larger than a car battery!) :-)
