  1. Of course, I never listen to my own advice, I just glue the fuselage sides together then force the cockpit bits in... resulting in popped seams, re-glueing, filler and, much swearing.
  2. Vintage Airfix Kits

    The 1979 Hurricane I is, if I recall correctly, accurate (although lacking in detail) and is certainly easy to build. Likewise, the Spitfire Vb and Mosquito II/ VI/ XVIII.
  3. The interior looks good Ced. If you had asked, I would have suggested glueing the fuselage halves together, after a dry-fit to work out how much sanding the cockpit bits needed to ensure there isn't a gap, then inserting the cockpit bits after the glue has set. AZ models can be a pain but you need to remember that you're the bloke who did a splendid job of the Airfix Gosling.
  4. What have you purchased 9

    There will be no photographs (sadly) so you'll have to take my word for it and it isn't pub-based (oddly) Splendid work Ced.
  5. What have you purchased 9

    No, I'm forming a kazoo orchestra.
  6. That Seaslug launder looks very delicate. Is it 3-D printed?
  7. A well-executed model in an unusual scheme (as usual). E-boats were used in the Mediterranean too so it's not too great a leap of imagination to suspect that black-painted Wellingtons were used to deal with them (or is it?)
  8. That's very nice. Did you use the Mk10 kit (without the fin fillet) or a MkX (and added a thimble nose)?
  9. There's an exercise going on in St. Martins Plain near Folkestone this evening. So far there's been a Chinook, a Merlin and an unidentified smaller helicopter flying around.
  10. What have you purchased 9

    They aren't Christmas presents.
  11. Hello from Kent

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
  12. What have you purchased 9

    Twelve kazoos.
  13. It was an 'interesting' decade to live through, that's for sure. Yes and yes.
  14. After playing the National Anthem. I recall watching a lot of this as a boy: (I recommend watching this to the end because there's some very groovy music in it. Repeating it 2 or 3 times will give you the authentic 1970's BBC experience.)
  15. You mean, it's too early to be seeing such fine figures of men. Whilst we're on the subject of British accents, how about this?
