    I will take you word for it. Oh! don't expect everyone to read everything.

    However, I still stand by my judgement...... I had your photos of the figure copied on a 14GB USB and I made several hard copies of them. I had some of them enlarged, especially the one showing the figure from the side which shows him well leaning backwards.

    I had the photos scanned at a friend of mine who superimposed them on an computer generated grid. The grid clearly shows that the backward lean is not a natural pose. By placing values on the grid the computer will be able to calculate the 'true lean' and your figure showed that you are off by 5.08 impex degree which when calculated to the relative coherent true gravity it give the figure an unnatural pose.

    Now, just to show that I not only comment but also give you the soluation, I went further to calculate the inert proximation of the gravitational pull from the top of the head (this being calulated and reduced ti suit 1:35 scale... which was a pain to get it correct!), to his lower lumber support. In short your figure should be moved forward just a tad. In engineering terms... .02 degrees forward and -.23 degrees to the left.

    Thank me at the club study

    Mr J. Fenech, thank you for your observation. Such analysis were in fact taken into consideration. I see you are a man of true science to have noted such complicated variables. I did not mention them because I know that Ray has no idea about science or the effects of gravity.

    However, to answer your question. Humidity was the main major factor because this induces low pressure pertaining a considerable amount of weight in terms of downward weight over pressure equals gravity squared. This means that Ray's figure, as I said earlier had an incorrect lean....... however, he seems to have friends in the right places because he managed to get a license to get away with art. He called it 'artistic license' ... and god know how much he paid for it.

    In fact, Ray... it's so relaxing and boring that we have to make comments about a figure vs balancing to make it a bit exciting! bounce

    No he will not get mad, it will be an excuse for him to put in more posts and keep increasing his massive amount of posts.

    ... where is he anyway? scratch ... maybe in his shed correcting the backward lean on the figure scratch ... Telford is creeping on him slowly slowly.... so while we are having fun building pages of hijacking posts... he must be oblivious to all this Shocked

    I WISH Bri Evil or Very Mad 

    Waiting for the putty to harden a bit as I've just added the coat "tail" to rest on the wing pale 

    What a bloody STRESSFULL TASK, with the LVG here & weaving myself thru THE FRIGGIN RIGGING & applying talcum powder to the bare minimum so to protect the clear varnish Evil or Very Mad 

    Infact I'm going for a walk in the meantime so to RELEASE the "toxic waste" in my blood system Sad 

    Won't start painting until tomorrow the least Sad 

    I'm on Leave till Tue next so would be able to finish Lt.Weymar till Wed next pale 

    To MarKo & Noel.......throw all your MUD at me Twisted Evil  It Will Only Make Me Stronger lol!

    Ray.... next time make him stand next to the plane! Cool 

    I'm, sorry you're stressed out....... but in my heart I know that you are a strong man and you will make it through. One stroke at a time and you'll get there..... I mean with the brush Wink 

    Look forward to the painting posts!

    Really looks nice with the plane! Veru! Prosit!

    the plane looks excellent! Question: What's that little propeller next to the wheels?

    Ray, mela you did not dig the rigging into the coat?

    Since he does not post anywhere i need to hijack your thread to tell Joseph prosit for the lovely work he did on the plane, it is looking magnificent in the limited view we have. It would be great if he could post some more pics of it.
