The Great Hawker Named-After-A-Weather-Event Aircraft Group Build Time's Up +13

Good evening,

I have just received some magnets in the post courtesy of a very nice lady via Trade Me. Here's what I have in mind.


A piece of dowel cut to 42cm (the 1/72nd scale equivalent of 100 feet), a...ummm, I think they are 'sposed to go under furniture or sofas or something, both courtesy of Bunning's Warehouse, and a couple of magnets - one for the stick, one for the Typhoon.





Can't seem to find my super glue, so I'll try a hot glue gun from school. Certianly for the dowel 'n magnet. Not how sure that'll work with the model itself...and now is not the time for experimentation! I wonder if PVA'd do it...

Right, next step...get these school portfolios finished - they've gotta go home on Friday. Then we'll see what we will see...

Nick

  1. I sure hope it never falls off, looks a long way down ;)
    Looks like same size magnets that I bought at local hardware place.

    Looking forward to moer aeronautical antics.

    Cheerio,
    John.

    1. Yeah, it kinda is. One of the reasons I took the blades off the prop actually! These magnets are pretty strong though, so...I'm mildly confident.

      It's far more likely that I'll bump it and the whole thing, stand 'n all will tip over and come crashing down, probably on a delicate 6 pounder or a tank just bristling with easily breakable MGs!

    2. And way cool Zombie hunters too. Wonder who that hooded figure was at the end of season 2?
