  1. Good stuff Ken Looking sweet!
  2. Better still you could put it on a pole in the garden and when the wind blows the propeller turns round and the crankshaft system you made will make your little helper dude hand crank start the engine. You know like those things with a windmill that make the little man chop wood like billy-oh. You could make a fortune selling them to garden centres. They would fly off the shelves
  3. I said a bad word when I saw pics of the model Roughly translated by the Internet Friendly Translator App, it was "I say, that is rather good!" Totally stunning work, Joseph!
  4. Thinking about it probably the most costly kits I had were the among the cheapest. They were the dogs of plastic that cost me my sanity!
  5. I always thought it was called that because it's a pantomime?
  6. This imho is the most important thing about scale model kit building. After having fun. And after not making too big a balls up of the kit. But definitely the most important thing after that is knowing that it's there. Otherwise we could leave all sorts of things off and where's the fun in that?

    Come on all of you big strong men Uncle Sam needs your help again He's got himself in a terrible jam Way down yonder in Old Iran. So put down your books and pick up a gun We're gonna have a whole lotta fun! And it's one, two, three, what are we fighting for Don't ask me I don't give a damn, Next stop is Old Iran And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates Ain't no time to wonder why, whoopee we're all gonna die
  8. Sounds very Northern that. Eeee...it's a reet grumm'un t'neet lad! Would be nice to do the Intruder and Corsair in those markings but I couldn't source the decals. For those that aren't aware I should have said that this was taken in 1976 during cross carrier ops with the USN as part of Ark Royal's bi-centennial anniversary tour to the USA Hence the "King Alfred's Navy" tag on the fuselage. (Filmed for the "Sailor" documentary) BTW I can't remember which thread was discussing the merits/demerits of the Fujimi kit and the newer Airfix kit. The Fujimi kit has recesses on the splitter plates, which is incorrect. If you click on the pic, and then enlarge it, you can make out some horizontal bands but the surface is flush If some one can point me to the thread I will comment there rather than distract from Richard's build thread. Heaven forfend that we ever go OT on BxM
  9. For a long while the most expensive kit I owned was the Hasegawa 1/72 Lancaster which was £32 , a Christmas pressie from Ma and Pa. I've gone up to £40 more or less a couple of times over the last two of years. I don't keep a tally but I think the Thunder Scammell Pionner Tractor being my pinnacle at around £45 and I will have had a discount on that. Thanks to Ma and my sister for that one.

  11. Sure thing. I'm sure I used to have a better res version and you could actually read the names My brother was NAM and is in the pilot's seat If I get a better res pic will upload hope it is of interest
  12. Nice one Richard I'm looking forward to when I finally get around to my brother's Phantom and having to put crew name stencils on the intake plate beneath the cockpit
