Shredward, I think we all knew that Mike's, "I thought I'd start on what will effectively be an 'out of the box' build", was nothing more than a classic one-liner on his part. Other such historic examples:


"I am not a crook." - Richard M. Nixon
"I did not have sexual relations with that woman." - William J. "Bill" Clinton
"There's not many Indians over that rise." - General George A. Custer
“What hump?" - Igor

Oh indeed Mike, another classic. There are just so many, we could (and should) start a thread just for folks to list some of their favorites.

No no, some last words are most definitely one-liners.

Hi all,
Now the Macchi M.5 model is finished I'm going back to continue working on the Port Victoria PV.7 'Grain Kitten'.
It'll be a totally different mindset as the Macchi was one of the largest models I've built to date and the 'Kitten' will probably be the smallest model I'll ever build in this scale.
It's another resin model and will doubtless have the usual challenges of a 'limited run' kit.
The main areas that take the time are usually the cockpit and engine.
However, as I've already finished the cockpit and there is no visible engine to speak of, the build shouldn't take that long to complete - we'll see,

Mike

Hi all,
The four wing support struts supplied in the kit do not have internal support rods, as the upper wing, although solid resin, is small and therefore light weight.
Normally I would use the kit supplied struts. However one of the struts was missing the locating pin at one end.
Possibly it could have been drilled and pinned, but I decided to replace all four struts with micro-tube and internal support rods.
As before, I used the 'Strutter' tool to create aerofoil sections from 1.2 mm diameter micro-tube with internal 0.5 mm rod supports.
The rods were soft soldered in the aerofoils sections,

Mike

Carrying on from RAFLouvert's earlier post I have found the following:

“Stopped.”

That was the last word spoken by Joseph Henry Green (1791-1863). The English surgeon spoke that word upon checking his own pulse.

This next one describes how Robert Liston achieved a 300% mortality rate in one operation, and a couple of other surgeries he also did (this is definately dark humour:

In the days before anesthesia, speed was at least as important as accuracy when doctors were performing surgery. The longer a patient had to endure the pain of being cut open and cut apart, the less likely he or she would survive the procedure.

With that in mind, surgeons trained to perform their ministrations as quickly as possible. One noted surgeon, Robert Liston (1794-1847), could amputate a limb in under a minute. Once he removed a 45 pound scrotal tumor in four minutes. Prior to the surgery, the owner had to carry it around in a wheelbarrow.

There is a fine line, however, between expediency and recklessness. Once, while operating on a patient’s leg, Dr. Liston, in his haste, cut off the fingers of his assistant. He also slashed through the clothing of a spectator. Not only did his patient die, but the assistant and the observer both developed infections from their injuries and died, resulting in the only known medical procedure with a 300% mortality rate.

On another occasion he amputated a man’s leg in a mere 2.5 minutes. His precision was a little off, though, so he also managed to remove his patient’s testicles.

One time he noted a pulsating red spot on a boy’s neck. Convinced that it was nothing more than an abscess, he pulled a knife from his pocket and lanced the spot right there, puncturing the carotid artery. The boy died within seconds, but if you want to see the artery, it is on display at the University College Hospital in London as Specimen No. 1256.

Wow - some surgeon.
Interesting if gory history there and quit enlightening while I'm sat here eating my bran flakes biggrin
The guy who had his family jewels cut off tried to sue the surgeon, but eventually lost the case.
I guess he really didn't have had a leg to stand.

Hi all,
The four wings struts have been test fitted.
Now it's on to making the four fuselage to upper wing cabane struts,

Mike

Very nice Mike, and right out of the box too. biggrin

To the previous post by Rugbyfan1972 about Dr. Liston and the court case that no doubt followed:


Injured in a botched surgical procedure? We here at Giggleberry, Cojones, Clockweights & Nads believe that you should not have to suffer further due to the reckless behavior of an over-zealous doctor. That is why our personal injury attorneys are ready and waiting to nut up on your behalf. We’ll put the “profit” back in your lost profiteroles and make sure those responsible are held accountable. We guarantee you a full coin purse in compensation for that klackerless sack, and if we can’t get it, you don’t pay.
