  1. Have to say I dare you.... Best of luck with the recovery though. P.s Pink by any chance?
  2. First Airfix kit was the 1/72 F-111E Not airfix related though but does anyone remember the Tamiya Mini 4WD series?
  3. Jens, There's a couple over on Evilbay at the moment: Cracking finish on the kit too.
  4. I've quite a few hundred books on the S6 at the moment. Try looking at FBreader, although Kindle also have an app for the tablet.
  5. Chain Lube & Dot4 Brake fluid.
  6. To connect the airbrush to the can via the hose you have, you would need something like this: That screws on to the top of the Propellant can's to enable you to spray that way. The HS08 is a very cheap compressor, which is ideal to start off with spraying properly. I have had mine for nearly 2 years now and it still works as good as the day I purchased it (with airbrush) from Amazon.
  7. From watching this last night, they mentioned that the list of the aircraft had came from the RAF Battle of Britain website: I agree more of a specialist subject though more than general knowledge, but glad to see something else aviation related on the show.
  8. Hello, First foray as such into this area, I've had an idea for the past month or so formulating about creating a scaled down version of the Lexmoto Arizona 125 I have, with that in mind I have the bike at home so I could quite easily get all the measurements of the parts. Few questions though which I hope don't sound like they are coming from a complete newbie in this area. 1. How would I go about making the frame? 2. How would I go about making the suspension? 3. How would I go about making the tyre's and wheels? Engine wise, I know there are a few kits out there which are of a similar design, although they are for the higher "cc" bikes, I was looking at them and thiking with a slight bit of modifications that they could become the basis for the same engine as the one I have. The scale I would be looking at building it in is 1:4, and if the measurements I have are correct then it should work out like this: 1:4 scale Length: 205 cm long, 51.25 cm scale 1:4 Scale Width: 77 cm Wide, 19.25cm scale 1:4 scale height: 105.5 cm High, 26.37 cm scale 1:4 scale wheelbase: 137.5 cm real life, 34.37 cm real life. This could be pie in the sky at the moment as I have a few kits I need to finish, but I'm thinking about a long term plan of building this up, and possibly having some electrics on it working. Many thanks in advance John

  10. Was it by any chance by lcaerodesign or Airshow Models?

  12. Someone jogged my memory about this today, and a very rare version called the Farley FruitandNut came to mind, any idea on this version?
