Ernie, get a copy of Revo Uninstaller (the free version should work fine) and run it in moderate mode

13/06/2018 09:13:11

What might help (but it's a bit hit and miss) is to right click on the install file and go to properties. Click on the compatability tab and tell it to run in XP mode. You may have to do this on the .exe file after (and if) it installs

Some nice shots of a restored P51B with the Malcolm hood here

I know it was the High Speed version but I posted the photo because it was the only one I had where the Dzus fasteners could be seen.

I had a look at the photos in Profile Publications and there's no hinge on the cowl. Both top and bottom seem to be fastened with Dzus fasteners (two rows of five on each side)

I'm curious as to what makes them 'professional' models (maybe he paid someone to assemble them for him)

Singapore Post is notoriously slow, but there is another problem. Once the package leaves Singapore, tracking is done by the Royal Snail and the first you will find out from them is usually a postcard saying that you owe them VAT on both the original cost and the postage, plus a 'handling fee'

Any time I used 'Live Chat' it was about as useful as a chocolate teapot. It's based (I believe) in the Philippines and has no direct input into any of the warehouses; they rely on stock answers (they're able to read tyour order status) but that's as far as it goes

Thread: Ebay sellers...

Same here =- there is junk but there are also bargains. You have to know what you're looking for and either assess it from the pictures or contact the vendor. I've bought new and used items including a new 40W CO2 laser cutter and a second hand Fermi fretsaw (for a bargain price). I've never had a problem and I know that if there's a hiccup I can rely on paypal/google to sort it out.

Moral is - if it looks like junk or overpriced, then it probably is

Peter - he's referring to a post which was deleted.

Thread: Warbird Replicas Bf 109 club.
11/03/2018 20:18:56

That's a standard 9 pin D Sub connector (it was very common back when computers had serial ports).

That's the point Don - they didn't do a throw in - just grabbed the ball and straight back into play.

10/03/2018 16:17:21

Next week is rose planting time :D

But can someone tell me when the rule about stepping into touch to catch the ball was changed? I watched the Scots step over twice to catch an incoming ball. When I learnt to play you did NOT hold the ball if you were over the touchline (it's the same as stepping into touch - isn't it?)

Some nice shots here (I do believe the flying shots of the Harry Tate are faked though)

Thread: Balsa USA Sopwith Pup 1/6 scale
02/03/2018 03:27:34

Simon, if it's any use, I uploaded a collection of Sopwith factory drawings to hippocket some time back. There's detail you wouldn't believe (and would never see anyway) but stuff like instruiment panel, the (removable) pocket watch (apparently this was a very popular item if the pilot forgot to take it out after landing), thew pilot's seat (16 SWG 'armour plate' ) and so on.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow - we've been plagued by injuries.

Thread: Somebody really slipped
23/02/2018 20:39:34

I think the pen pusher in the Finnish aircraft registration office may have had one too many when he allocated this one

Oh Dear

I slipped and said Czech (OK) instead of Finnish (OH) I must have had one too many as well blushsad

Would being born under Ophiuchis make one officious?
