  2. Best and Worst Model Kits You've Ever Made

    hi ALL , gunna write about Kits that have'nt bin produced. Has any one made a Conversion set for a 1/48 DH-9A ? The closest Kit I have come across is the RODEN 1:48 DH9C the Passenger/ Air Ambulance Aircraft I have'nt gorn into the Specs of a DH9C compared to a DH 9A ........ the Fuselage difference is obvious. And yes, I bought a WINGNUT NUTS DH9A ..... the Bees Knees ! cheery "modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156

  4. Best and Worst Model Kits You've Ever Made

    hi ALL , if you really want to have a grizzle about an Aircraft Kit that cannot be fixed it's the GRAFIX Spitire (both 1/72 & 1/48 ) the Wings were made back to front it even shows the error on the Instructions, Anyway I built it as per Instructione' did really good paint work/custom Deeecal application I showed the completed model to an "Expert" on Aircraft.....he did'nt pick it ! .....went off in a huff when I explained , I bought (2) the 2nd I chopped up into a pretend local Fire Spotter Aircraft...even gave it a Victorian Aircraft Manufacturer Name....some believed me ! g.g.m.s. ! Has'nt hit the Comp Tables yet . cheery "modellin' " mumbas ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156
  5. Best and Worst Model Kits You've Ever Made

    hi ALL , if I read that Someone has moved House , I'll scream !...... we don't care ! A bad kit is only the Modellers inability to carry on reguardless ......it's only pretend ! How does the Modeller handle stuff in real life ?... . " take their Bat 'n' Ball ? " Geoff F.T.G. 3156
  6. hi Spookytooth , yes, I have heard that the Sunderlaland was called the "Porcupine " by the Germans as the AIRCRAFT was very hard to approach without bein' stung ! A Pig squeels when approached and bothered the Sunderland said nuthin' and keep its Enemies at bay. .......... sometimes for hours or until the Attackers were runin' outa Fuel and had to go Home . There were no 30 second engagements ! Geoff F.T.G. 3156
  7. hi ALL , the Sunderland has NEVER bin called "The Fyin' Pig " by the Crew, NEVER thought of their Aircraft as a "Pig " more of an Aircraft that they knew would get them through ALL the XXXX that wot was shot at them ........ and git Home .

  13. When dispatched means dispatched

    hi ALL , have you tried other Tracking Sites ? The question/sus that a Post Office stalls mail..... could be true A few weeks ago I ( eventially!) recieved the Items I had ordered from a Seller 13kms up the road The small parcel had taken (11) days to travel to my address ! The Seller had posted the package on the day he had stated. This incident is NOT the 1st time tardyness from this P/O has occured ........ is there angst between the Post Office Clerk and the Customer ? and here's me thinkin' all the "Little Nepolians " had passed on ! Geoff
