Picked this up at the Bolton show yesterday along with a Revell B25J

The Mitchell is for Caracals forthcoming sheet for post war USAF aircraft.

They do this sheet in 1/72 nd scale as well with an extra aircraft on it, some really interesting choice of subjects in both the main scales.

I was nearly tempted by the Japanese C47 sheet but managed to refrain.AM9spO5.jpg

I had a lot of scraps of MDF in the workshop so spent a little time this afternoon making odds and sods to make my modelling life a smidge easier

Some clamps (need a bike inner tube to cut up for gripping elastic) from a free design by Makerdesignlab


Assorted depth brackets, models hanging up, for the purpose of.


Anti tail sitting props for when I put insufficient lead in the nose (i.e. always)


3-12mm in 3mm increments


Holding an EE Lightning at a more civilised attitude

I have never heard of that kind of paint before Leo 

None of you did. it's a Brazilian blend. Very good. It's made with two doses of "caipirinha"!:1562769345_laugh(1):

That sounds like a good idea, get merry while you paint :1562769345_laugh(1):

Cover very well and if he don't have the color you can send a sample and he does.

I suppose taking a fellow club member who is currently pretty much housebound out on a trip to a model shop was never likely to end well in respect of GBH to the old debit card, but hey ho!


As an aside, if you're ever in south west Suffolk, head into Long Melford and visit Model Behaviour, they're just off the main thoroughfare through the village (Little St Mary's) in St Catherine's Road. There's loads of tea shops in Long Melford, but we headed back to Sudbury and TTT Motorcycle Village to indulge our other passion. It's a warehouse type place with not only almost literally hundreds of second hand bikes, but also a very decent cafe area where all day breakfast was taken. A rather nice day out all in all.

i hope you are going to do it as one thats had a short holiday in the Ukraine :thumbsup:


you can practice your weathering lol



Always interesting to closely examine pictures like this to see how it was knocked out, obviously there is so much noise from Russia and Ukraine

on the Propaganda front to bolster opinion and support for their sides, this one looks like it has a tow cable fitted top the front towing attachment.

So maybe it broke down and was destroyed by it's crew to stop it falling into the hands of the other side. Either way it's impossible to tell if it was

in Russian or Ukraininan hands at the time as they both use Soviet era equipment, hopefully that is soon to change.

Thanks, that's given me an idea where I can put my 1/32 Me 262 when I get around to putting it together. :D

That was the year it was first built,bin modified over the last few years a bit though.

I'm getting my Finnish Brewster Buffalo Tommorrow, Jadlam Racing has never let me down, I'll dig into that as soon as it arrives, after my Thursday Morning 6k run of course.

On order I have another classic ship Kit and book combination on the way. As you can see, the box is rip torn, so the collectors didn't bid on it, so I got it for a reasonable price

as I'm building it. The parts are still sealed in the old poly bag.



and it has made up shrouds...yes.


The book is on it's way, and I'll give a brief on it in time.
