Thanks Matt....

I think however for the next photo shoot, we need to get them both in Bikinis' draped over the bonnet of a Ferrari!!

Maybe we could get GIRLS too??

BTW, I have just run the new blades up on the LongRanger in garden.. I stopped though as it was bending all the hedges over!!

I LOVE the smell of turbines with lunch!

Been working some more on the longranger,
tonight i finished off the gas struts and have painted them,

Also re-did the wire cutter, we cut it down to 1/5 size and threaded brass tube through it and bolted it to top and neatend it up as it was last minute fitted prior to MHC comp last year and it looked a bit scruffy as commented on by judges in the static, it will be painted white over the weekend - need to get some white paint! it is now rock solid and looks very neat and tidy.
We then also fitted the bottom wire cutter again we cut this down to size, does look really good,

Dave machined up a couple of lock washers which he chamfered, very nice work..

Also I painted the hinges to the correct colour, so those that were in the blue stripe I painted blue, and those that were halfway between white and blue I managed to follow the blue line through the middle of hinge which makes it look very realistic.

It really is coming on now looking tidy with some further improvements, following the judges comments from last years comps.

We then did some work on his New longranger, again it was nice to see them both together.

Hi Matt,

i like what you did with the improvements on your wire cutter it looks even better, plus it's so much stronger looking. Good job i have been watching this thread for some time.

Nice looking Rangers Matt. Like the work youve done.

Looking at your pics has given me an idea for my wire cutter.

Sorry some of the photos were blurred, damn camera phone in artificial lights, nothing to do with Bell as this was not his home..

Have fitted the gas struts/dampers tonight, fitted all new screws on the cowling and painted them to match the fuse, and re fitted the brass inserts as some over time had stripped, we also tidied up a little more, and re touched up the white areas, it does look too clean now SORRY BELL, so when the weather warms up I will be re-doing the weathering with the technique Bell showed me.

Also added another coat to the door hinges so they match the colour of the fuse, it has been a well spent 2 weeks tidying it up.

I also need to get hold of some green to re do inside the cowling prior to adding heat protection around hot spot areas.

Dave took some better photos for me, thanks Dave

that comment could take the conversation down so many avenues

I remember someone recommending ebay, and the action men, but after reading Lens book he made the point often they would need to be cut down to size etc, so will have a look around on fleabay, and yeah i will report back matey..
Hope you are ok and working hard on that fine machine of yours

matt a blow up dolly sheep isn't very scale

ha ha, BAAA, i wont be flying in Wales, although i was up Snowdon at the end of last week,

I have been looking on Ebay, and put in a few bids, on some action men figures, as mine is 1/5th i am unsure of what the correct scale size should be, trouble is when flying in Nats thing like this get picked up on by the judges and if it is wrong, points will be deducted..

Len Mounts publication and scale biography made the point about with some you had to cut them down or lengthen them to get it 100% accurate, to be fair, i aint that botherd as long as they look close enough then i am happy..

I have looked back through some old/New threads that are filled with a lot of good info.

But trying to find a female one is proving to be a challenge.

Matt, Hate to see you struggling,
proving to be a challenge. this is always the case when you don.t have some one holding your hand

But trying to find a female one is proving to be a challenge.
Barbie, 11.5 inches tall, 1/6th scale, there are lots of outfits for barbie, you and james could have a lot of fun dressing them,

i am unsure of what the correct scale size
Download a dimentioned line drawing, divide the length, by the length of your model, this will give the exact scale of your particular model

I know my model is 1/5th, what i wanted to know is what size of figure would you use in a 1/5 model.. that is what's proving to be a challenge, I already have a barbie, and I was told by the judges at the nats it is the wrong size for my model.

Simple answer Matt.

Lets say that an average height is to be 5"8"
So that's 68" divided by your scale of 1:5
Your doll height should be around 13.6" tall.
