    Yep, otherwise known as a 'Jockstrap' ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

    SC is too sweet for me, and prefer V&T to G&T.
    Can't get the smell of gin passed me schnozzle ๐Ÿ˜ก
    Pims #1 is also good. Tally Ho chaps!

    Temp here has collapsed 10ยฐC again, cloudy and rainy.
    Expecting 37ยฐC again at end of the week though, Phew!!
    GWS to Chris, cheers, Doug

    I assume you're referring to something sporting, rather than sartorial.
    Yup I do like a Stilton or Roquefort, with me Patum Pepperium and a nice glass of a rich red. The combination is pure gentleman's club. Wood smoke and red leather.

    Failing that, in this weather I am a Spatlese man. Or a cold G&T. I was given a bottle of Southern Comfort yesterday, by my daughter, bless her. I like that with a large piece of ice and a slice of orange, left to brew for a while.

    Off out to take Chris to the quack. in the hottest part of the hottest day of the year. Great!

    Hi Martin,
    I used a 'protection piece' as well, but only when facing fast bowling on a 'sticky wicket' ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ญ
    If it slipped around I just tightened the straps ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    'Old Mould'; Of course! A nice ripe Stilton or Gorgonzola. Not to mention Roquefort ๐Ÿ˜‹

    Canopy glue doesn't seem to have the 'lumpy' problem.
    I only discovered it, and other Deluxe Materials stuff, last year and up to now I'm very pleased and impressed with their stuff. Not cheap but they do exactly what it says in the blurb ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I tried using a protector piece, but it helped it slide all over the place.

    Ihave the first of those items.

    Old mould. Can't whack it. Better than mature Cheddar

    Micro Klear is that stuff that looks exactly like PVA glue (and probably IS) that model airyplane kitbashers use to glaze tiny airliner windows and such. it goes allegedly clear when dry, but is so bumpy a blind man can see it.

    the Olfa cutter is a compass cutter

    https://www.fredaldous.co.uk/products/olfa-compass-cutter?ut...

    you can avoid the pinprick by using a covering piece to take the point of the cutter. I did however pick up a compass cutter from

    https://www.theworks.co.uk/?q=Circle%20Cutter

    This has a covering piece to stop making holes in the work piece.

    Mornin' Martin,
    I haven't the foggiest what an Olfa cutter is, never had any Olfa to cut ๐Ÿ˜,
    don't know MikroKlear either. Can only say Canopy Glue worked great for me.
    Apropos NUTS syndrome; yep the quacks an' trick cyclists have given up on me as well๐Ÿ˜ One wanted to write a seminar around me I think!

    What U doin' muckin' about with 'Old Mould'? Eeeeh ๐Ÿ˜†
    More power to your scraper ๐Ÿ˜‰

    In the War on nuts, Doug, I declare you beyond help!

    I cut them on the narrow boat with an Olfa cutter in the end. He didn't notice the tiny pin prick in the middle of each lens. I have some canopy glue, but I haven't used it yet. is it any different really, from say MicroKlear?

    Got most of my Crash Tender fittings cleaned up while Chris watched her mama Mia on the telly. Being from old moulds they needed a fair bit of filing and sanding, but we got there. Some only need a slight scrape with a knife. Very hard white metal, which hardly makes your fingers discolour so I'm guessing lead free. You even get two resin navigation lights.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Re Portholes,
    Martin, I don't know how many dozen I did on my 1/72 53" destroyer, two rows in the hull plus superstructure, but that's why I AM NUTS! ๐Ÿ˜
    Since fibre-glassing the hull I now have to do those AGAIN! ๐Ÿ˜ก

    Hi John, yes I'm sure I saw that story on the 'Mayday - Alarm in Cockpit' series. A sobering tale, like the cheap 'forged' false pylon bolts that caused a 777 to loose an engine ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
