  1. If the rest goes as well as you've painted the dress, it should look good.
  2. What! Surely it can't just be to protect the carpet? I seem to recall you have a large garage or out-building so couldn't you use that for modelling?
  3. Mac is short for 'Machine'. Obvious init? Nice work so far Mac.
  4. Wow that's a beautiful model. @Vaastav will be pleased you chose an Indian scheme.
  5. Nice work Gareth. It's bigger than I thought it would be.
  6. Excellent. I said you could do it. Well, I think I said that. Maybe I did maybe I didn't but I definitely thought it. Think I did.
  7. Nice photos Milan. Do you know what this is?:
  8. Thanks for the photos Leo. it looks like another excellent show.
  9. Exceptionally good Mac. The mottling is just right.

    No aircraft

    Would be for me as well. I've eaten my way around several NT orchards in the past. It's a shame more of the properties don't harvest and sell them on, rather than leave them to rot.
  11. It is definitely off centre. Thanks for the video - that helps with my build.
  12. What I want, what I really, really want (damnit that bloody song ). What I'd like does tend to vary over time, the ones which seem to persist are a decent (and preferably affordable): 1/48 Hampden (I'd even be willing to pay the new Airfix/Tamiya type prices for a good one). More 1/48 WWI/pre WWII military vehicles. More 1/72 or 1/48 civilian trucks from the steam age to the late 1960's (when they started to look boring).
  13. Apparently it's not an easy build but the Special Hobby Sunderland gets good reviews: https://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=13624 Again, not an easy build, the ACE kit can turn out okay with care: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/ace-72432-fv-622-stalwart-mk2-6x6--1015501
  14. Those sea forts are fascinating. Such a shame they are being left to rot away.

    Another Tiger I

    Nice progress Leo, it's looks a very detailed kit.
  16. Yes it is a very good kit…..with minor issues. The whingeathon continues. The doors aren't separate parts (another of my many pet hates) although on a Scammell they are really easy to cut out if you have a razor saw. This is where the one of the minor issues comes in….if you cut the bottom of the door on the outside of the part (front cab sides) the inside doesn't match up. Don't cut from the inside line as it will make a mess on the outside. Again, it's easy to rectify – with a thin strip. Elsewhere on the site I mentioned that I wanted to tart up the
