  1. A pair of Airfix Hawks in 1/72

    Tomo beat me to it, but I was was going to post up Hello Hello, I'm Back Again, but decided it was a bit un-PC Strange how excited a mortal can get when the gods add to the greater understanding Far more delicate than the PP offering if memory serves Box On Strickers
  2. Airfix 1/72 Blenheim Mk I

    Morning from old South Wales Nice job with the 'pit seams, and engine covers, better than mine! I chickened out on the canopy masking and bought my way with a Peewit mask set, very good by very fiddly. Just a thought, but the RAF decals supplied with the kit are for a Butterworth based aircraft, which if my O level geog hasn't failed me is east of Suez, so would the AckEmmas be attired in trop get up? Just a thought.... Nice idea about the dio tho Note to self...more grass Regards Strickers
  3. Airfix 1/72 Blenheim Mk I

    Morning from Old South Wales, just completing this one, and you might consider the following:: The instructions would have you construct the cockpit tub and rear fuselage as separate sub assemblies. This will give a step above and below the leading edge of the wing that might be difficult to eradicate. I joined the cockpit sections to the rear fuselage halves before mating the halves together, which allowed me to minimise the gap. Also I attached the engine covers to the exhaust ring before fitting over the engine, this should ensure that you have no gaps in the engine covers, but you might have to reduce the diameter of the engine is smidge as I did. Apart from that and seat belts up the pointy end and a seat for the rear gunner mine was OOB and looks tidy Strickers

  5. Seems to be a few threads that are getting close to to their denouement and authors are deciding to rewrite the chapters much to the amazement and pleasure of the onlookers and followers. The bar is so high I can hardly make it out from down here. Box On Strickers

  14. I'd forgotten about the Airfix HKGMP (Hokey Kokey Gas Masked Pilot) and TJE (Thin Jimmy Edwards)! I see you've not painted the handlebar mustache on TJE....perhaps because it was a full set or nowt in the Fish heads? If this one is to go skywards then perhaps TJE could undergo minor shoulder lowering? Or bum reduction Fettle away me old son Box on Strickers
