  1. I think the 1/12th Bently Blower,which was produced,was in that region of cost.Scale Models magazine ran an article on the process of design and production of plastic kits and included the Bently with costings.The magazine came out in the mid 70's if I remember correctly. Dave.
  2. Whats the parking like around the centre.Also don't click on the link from the SNSMS site regarding the Dewars link,unless you want to know about about payday loans!56 days to go.
  3. Yes,think that was stopped a while back,as a seller you pay the full percentage of the sold price including the p+p costs.
  4. Been retired nearly 6 years now,ill health forced an early packup of work,hardly built anything lol,concentration levels not brill due to illness,but still buying stuff,must stop,lol.Getting really peed off with the utter shite thats on tv,all these drama series that finish,but leave you in doubt as to the outcome,its so they can do another series! Angry from Leicestershire.
  5. To think I used to deliver the metal for them to make their figures when they first started.Wish I'd bought shares. Dave.
  6. These photos are from the Francesco Barracca museum in Lugo,just 'down' the road from Maranello.Well worth a visit.These photos were taken in 2013.
  7. 'A bit demoralising' is a bit of an understatement I think Steve,that is truly insane work going on there.Wonder what that yellow filler is? Dave.
  8. Didn't a female pop singer try to stop Peterborough FC from using the name 'Posh',which is their nickname. I know a particular gent who deals a lot with the former soviet union.A particular company was blatently 'copying' and selling products at a much discounted figure.The illegal copying stopped after a friend of his had several burly gents visit the copiers,they were armed with AK-47's.
  9. What I'd like to know is why they call people from Nuneaton 'Codder'?
  10. Holy schmoly,I think I need to go and lie down.Amazing work!
  11. Holy s##t,they are having a giraffe,and the utter bull that is their marketing spiel,are they politicians? Talking of how much,looked at a 1/200th scale Titanic and a detail up set that even includes resin figures of Lenny the goat and Kate Winslet,well that would be my pension gone for a month!
  12. Hi all,a question about magazine subscriptions that I have been wondering about for a while.What happens if you have taken out a subscription,and then the magazine company goes bust,do you get your money back? I know that taking out subscriptions can have certain financial advantages,cheaper mags and free postage etc,but as I have asked,would you be reimbursed for the magazine going under?I have been contemplating taking out a couple of magazine subscriptions due to not able to go out to the shops at present,but am concerned over possible loss of monies if the company is put into receiver
  13. Hi guys, thanks again for all the suggestions,but SWMBO came to the rescue.She put some acetone nail polish remover in a dish,soaked the file for about half an hour,scrubbed it with an old toothbrush,and it came out like new,brill. Dave.
  14. Hi,have got a problem with my diamond file.One side is clogged up with something that appears to be milliput putty,but I can't seem to shift/clean the file properly.Have tried a wire brush,but alas it doesn't clean it throughly.Any suggestions as to how to remove this stuff. TIA.......Dave.
