  1. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    Hi Phil ans All Just found a Matchbox Phantom in my stash and I have measured the EMI pod and it is 110 mm long 15 mm in both height and wide So it looks as if Airfix has the right sized pod
  2. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    HI Phil and All group members You were very lucky to have had the extra parts in your kit Can you tell all of us out here if the EMI recce pod is as large as the old Matchbox kits pod as this was the wright size compared to the Fujimi offering which was way to small and very round. Geoff Arnold

  4. Hataka Paints

    I have just been given two sets of Hataka Blue Paint sets for Christmas and are if any of you out in the group can advise me of any problems with these paints They state that these paint are optimised for brush use but do they require thinning or any other prep before use
  5. Shackleton spray paint

    Hi Lord Riot Have you tried your local Halfords they can mix the colour that you want I have had satin Gray mixed by them in store all you need to do is quote this BS number BS381c 638 as 300ml cost £15 to mix, the paint is acrylic, but I do recommend you use there plastic primer just in case. and the primer will cost about £7 you will have enough paint left to do a couple of more small to medium models Geoff Arnold World Helicopter Sig IPMS Telford
  6. Are you serious, Hasegawa?

    Hi All Again Just looked at Hannants web page and they are selling the Orion at this time for £69.99
  7. Are you serious, Hasegawa?

    Hi All I have been modelling for longer then most some 50 years and remember in the early seventies Hasegawa kits were competitively priced because the importer AA Hales used to import them (without the box around them) and boxed in the UK by the importer as this was cheaper (they could get more bagged kits in each box) without a lot of wasted space around them for example the Lockheed P3a Orion cost about £9 compared to today's price of £60. I am aware that prices have risen in the intervening years but I do agree the prices of these kits is well OTT and the importer should think about consider doing this again. As the import charges are less for incomplete items.

  14. Yet another Shackelton question.

    Hi Richard and all I was a Survival Equipment Fitter from 1969 to 78 and I believe the seat harness were the light brown in colour similar to that used on the Lincolns, in about 1964 when I was a cadet I remember them also on helicopters, later the harness were medium blue webbing, and starting in the mid seventies started to appear using Black webbing.
