  1. He's looking for 1/72 Dragon Rapide decals,specifically the King's Flight ones from the Airfix issue of the Heller kit. It's the ones for G-ACTT on the above sheet. I have them for him,but the problem is that Royal Mail are requesting that customers refrain from sending letters/parcels overseas due to a cyber attack cocking up their system. Has anyone in the Northern U.S(specifically Canada)got a spare set that can be sent to him via U.S Mail/Canadian Post at all? I hate to let anyone down,but we here in UK are really struggling to send anything internationally.
  2. Payment by Paypal only. Postage is £3.50 for under £20 and £5.50 (tracked) for over £20. Tracked airmail is a lot more. Offers considered - some of these kits are oop. All kits complete and unstarted - please ask questions before buying if anything needs clarifying 1) Brengun Yak-1 + Canopy Mask set £13 2) MPM (Special Hobby) Meteor PR 9 - £18 3) Airfix (Special Hobby/MPM) Meteor F.8 (wings + 1 fuselage half off sprue and Club token missing but otherwise as new) - £10 4) Fine Molds Messerschmitt Bf109K-4 'Hartmann' £18 5) AZ Models Bf109F-2 - £10 6) AZ Models Bf109F-4 - £10
  3. Another straightforward out of the box build Decals slightly out of register on the tail lettering but it kept me occupied and entertained for a few hours which is kind of the point
  4. From the old snap together boxing. Xtradecals X72088 56 squadron Firebirds decals - a few stencils etc. short Started a couple of years ago as part of a GB at the other place - afraid I can’t recall the name of the kind person who gave me the decals to credit and thank them Our good Laird has given me a bunch of other Lightning decals that’ll get good service on the 3D printed F155T types
  5. Please read carefully! All the kits are complete and unstarted. Payment by Paypal only. UK post is £3.75 for kits under £20 and £4.75 (tracked) for kits over £20. Tracked airmail is a lot more. Offers can be considered and ask questions before buying if anything isn't clear! Everything aircraft is 1/72 !!!! 1) Airfix Lancaster B.Mk II (the sprues have been out of the bag but otherwise like new) £26 2) Trumpeter Wellington B.Mk III (mark on box but otherwise like new) £24 3) Revell BAe Harrier GR.Mk 7/9 (ex-Hasegawa kit, the sprues have been out of the bag but otherwise like n
  6. Since I emntioned them in Warren's build I thought I'd add my Airfix Zeros here, just for comparison. Mine are being built straight from the box as far as the plastic goes, but I'm using a sheet from Print Scale to depict two aircraft from 7th December 1941. Naturally Pearl Harbour gets all the attention, but the Japanese attcked both US and British forces at several points across the Pacific that day. This is the sheet. The missing markings are in the next shot. My two aircraft are: A6M2 Model 21, 3 Kokutai No. X-108. Pilot - Tamotsu Yokoyama. Takao, Formosa, 07-12-1941.
  7. Yes, you can do an FB5 or FB9 with the kit parts, (some of which are naff such as the solid scissor links, compressor blades, seat and other bits) and I plan to do that; a camo one even though the Norwegian decals are different to the norm I'm not really a fan of HSS finishes. The seat is basic. Not wanting to waste money on an aftermarket for something that will hardly be seen a bit of milliput (still setting prior to fettling) to make back cushion Wheel bays and intake trunking on. Lots of CA and kicker Warpy wings
  8. In-between the hyperbole there is news of the schemes on the now imminent Austin K2/Y ambulance. Workbench Andy
  9. For some this lock-down was a good reason to build more models than ever before. For me was a disaster! I totally lost my motivation. Started many, finished none! I hope this one is the turning point. I intentionally selected a model that has not cost me a fortune, so if the lock-down depression hits me again, I will not hesitate to send it to its first real flight out of the window... Leftovers from PE sets have been used to add some more realism. I tried to put more effort on painting and less into adding more details
  10. Still no firm release date (winter 2021-22), but a box art and colour scheme. If you're like me you'll be thinking R+B again? It's been done to death, but I get it. It will sell by the shed load to modellers and casual punters alike and there's no denying a full set of AEAF stripes makes for a very fetching box art. There's bound to be more than one release so other options will doubtless be looked at (please, not more iterations of Clostermann's or McKie's mounts) and it's not as if I don't have a decal bank to fall back on.
  11. https://www.theworks.co.uk/search?q=airfix&search-button=&lang=en_GB Savings at The Works peeps like £30 for an Airfix Shack AEW saving you £14.99,that's 33% off RRP or £25 for a Wimpy Mk.VIII.

  14. So here's where it starts, an original boxing of the Airfix Vixen and on opening the bag after buying this from @Gorby a few months ago I am very pleasantly surprised the plastic is nice and hard, panel lines are fine on first looking I'd put this on a par with the 48th scale lightning and 48th scale Spit 22/24 which I still consider the high water mark for Airfix. Mark had put an Eduard Zoom set in the box (thank you). I looked and the eduard set didn't include any seatbelts and on looking at the Airfix seats they are good in fact very good for injection moulded seats they aren't a patch on r
  15. Airfix Bristol Beaufort 1/72 The Type 152 Beaufort was a product of the Bristol Aircraft Co to a pre-war spec. for a twin engine aircraft capable of launching a torpedo. Superficially similar to the Blenheim, the Beaufort was found wanting due to being underpowered and although something of a mainstay with Coastal Command, aircrews did well to survive a tour of ops flying them. The notable aviation author and historian Roy C. Nesbit used to run regular articles in Aeroplane Monthly and I found his tales of ops on the Beaufort (and other types) very fascinating. His variously published boo
  16. Here's the finished article, my reminder of a nice day out... 🙂 And it's goodbye from me... Cheers, Dean
  17. Hello everyone, I'm thinking about making a weekly update starting now! The idea is to let you know about any new stuff we've had in, any future news and any bargains. New Stuff! - This week we saw the first batch of the all new tool AZ Models Bf109E. There's 3 different 109E-3's and an E-7/Trop to start with. They look a similar quality to the earlier releases of the Bf109F/G and K, so should be decent kits - https://mjwmodels.co.uk/az-models-172--kits-524-c.asp Future Stuff! - We've updated the future release categories on our website. We've updated the selection of Airfix
  18. A bit of a chore here and there but happy enough that the result looks adequately Spitfire shaped
  19. Got this in a pile of Amazon freebies for reviewing. Was going to enter into the under a tenner GB as it cost me nothing but figured that it wasn't in the spirit of GB. BRXM Review here Nothing much to speak of, apart from everything fits beautifully, IP decal perfectly matches raised details, nice. Fuel filler and spine landing light not OOB. Gunsight glass was replaced with rounded one after these were taken. Under primer

    The MiG

    Back in the day I recall building Airfixs Top Gun MiG. I loved it, built it with their F14 offering. So naturally jumped at the option of having another go with the re-release. I went in expecting little, and I wasn't shocked. The fit is ok, not a lot of flash on the sprue, but some detail has been lost. However, the fit needs sanding back a fair bit. OK back in 1986 for a young inexperienced modeller, but now...    Barely any pieces, and it was together in about 20 minutes, give or take a bit of sanding. You can see where the sanding efforts have been 
  21. So, as you all know, this is the only item I possess that comes under a tenner (it was the subject of hot debate and lively discussion on the last episode of Vaastav Tonight) . However, I have ordered a Roden Camel for 750 rupees (appx. £7.5) through contacts in Ukraine, so that maybe part of this as well. It won't be done immediately, as I currently am making a Tiger.
  22. Ahoy Campers Even though I love my cars and bikes and bangy things, I do have a soft spot for ships and have quite a number taking up space in the cupboard I know very little about ships, (probably why I haven't built more and I have no clue how to do water), so you'll have to bear with me on some of the terminology Lifeboats and the RNLI have a special place in our family. My Grandfather was involved with fund raising with the RNLI for many years. He was a Master Carpenter, and built most of the Lifeboats in 1/10th scale (IIRC). Here's a pic of his Severn Class Sad
  23. Weather is a bit too wild to be taking pictures outside so you’re going to have to live with dodgy lighting As I’m only keeping one built model at the moment this is straight onto ebay with all proceeds to NHS Charities https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/313322897392
  24. A slippery slope bad-to-worse Tracking a build all in verse Relying on @Walrus Who’ll reply and enthral us Though others may call for a nurse
  25. Simple kits cobbled together straight from the box - nothing exciting really to note about either. Both made at request of a bloke who’d bought some of my completed models. Filled a couple of days of grim weather .
