  2. Just to update this topic (pity I can't change the topic title)... Kit now available on GumTree (I flat refuse to use evil-Bay after being scammed badly a couple of years ago): https://www.gumtree.com/p/hobbies-collectibles/academy-model-kit-12209-1-48th-ch-53e-super-stallion-u.s.-marines-version/1437526289
  3. You've probably all already seen this, but the floor-plans are now out on the IPMS web-site. Only Halls 1 & 2 are in use this year - and that includes the competition area! So it'll be a much-reduced show compared to normal; only about 2/3 size compared to recent years. Disappointing, but not unexpected.
  4. Very sorry you feel that way. It was not my intent. I thought we were just having "a friendly debate". But fear not, I will no longer comment on any of your threads etc.
  5. That would work! For a “badge” we’d probably only actually need the roundel with the thief-y bloke at max? Probably a bit late now though for this year???
  6. I just don't see it as a big deal whatsoever. But that's just me perhaps? You can get a Covid Pass in seconds via the NHS app on your phone. That same app also shows your Covid vaccination status (single-, double-, triple-jabbed or whatever). Right now for me, it's looking like Telford will come just a smidgen too early vs my third jab. But I may be lucky. Finger's crossed. And I have a lateral flow test (available for free from Boots if you ask) all ready, waiting for me to take it on the Thursday beforehand. I will be at Telford as usual this year. I'm staying in the Holiday
  7. As a complete Bandai convert, I am sorry to be the (lone) voice of dissention in the wilderness, but this is going to be very, very easy for me to resist.... It's Revell. Their accuracy and quality leave a lot to be desired. I already notice obvious seams across details parts where it will be a pain in the proverbial to fix, whereas Bandai had separate parts to cover the seams and make the end-result perfect. The odd scale just grates. Make it 1/72nd or 1/48th, but this strange in-between is very much going to look odd next to something that is more of a consistent scale.
  8. If you have Photo$hop (££££ ouch!), and a tripod, then you can do some clever stuff with "stacking" multiple images taken at different focus-points to get a really pin-sharp resulting image. But Photo$hop is real expensive....
  9. I use my Canon old EOS-750D DSLR with the EF-S 15-85mm IS USM lens. I must admit I don't have any sort of "photography area" or anything. It's usually just on the kitchen worktop (as it's coloured white and has good natural light). Plus I normally just hand-hold the camera and snap-away until I think I've done enough. Nothing scientific or planned anything.
