    Hi, Blackbird models do a 72nd scale set of mosquito two stage engines currently out of stock though, please see below the link for their web site http://www.blackbirdmodels.co.uk/mosquito-two-stage-engines-72-1290-p.asp Can also be brought from Aviation Megastore but also out of stock https://www.aviationmegastore.com/mosquito-two-stage-merlin-engines-bma72004-blackbird-models-bma72004-aircraft-engines/product/?action=prodinfo&art=133499
  2. Hi Gimme Shelter, Love the idea of a second hand hearse. Nicely pimped up, resprayed red with our club logo on the sides and bonnet . A warning sign of If you can read this sign you are too close. BACK OFF! Models on board. Or a second hand ambulance, that comes with a lift on the back, even easier to load and off load.

    This might help reference the build https://modelingmadness.com/review/preww2/gb/burstwal.htm http://www.arcair.com/Fea1/801-900/Fea870-Wallace-Singh/00.shtm http://wingsofintent.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/everest-expedition-westland-pv-3-pv-6.html Radial Engine http://www.cmrmodels.co.uk/Radial-engines+wheels72/REW72002.html Hope this helps. Good luck with your build
  4. That's where his friends come to the fore, if you have followed his build on the Imperial Star Destroyer and also saw it on display at Telford it took two of us to transport it from the car to the Club Display. The specially designed and also made box by Gimme Shelter was so large it took up most of the boot, with the rear seats down , of the MG ZR that we used to transport it. Leaving very little room for John and our suitcases. Also the journey took longer than planned as there was no way that i the driver of said vehicle was prepared to risk excessive braking, so that any risk of damaging the model was kept to a minimum. Never been so glad to get to the end of a journey in my life, the relief was immense when the box was opened to check for damage and there was none.

  9. Thunderbird 3 colour?

    I found this brand as an alternative Hycote Peugeot Seville Double Acrylic Spray Paint 150Ml Xdpg503
  10. Thanks Mad Steve, spot on, have looked and Zero paints do the same Hemi Orange colour with the Dodge Charger on the label , so will be placing an order shortly.
  11. Hi all, Does anyone know what paint/ colour I could use on the body work of the MPC 1/16th Scale Dukes Of Hazard Dodge Charger, the sites i have looked at says the actual colour is "1975 Corvette Flame" which they suggest Testors Hemi and Huggar orange. As I am UK based I don't think i will be able to get hold of any Testors aerosol paint. so any ideas ? Also if anyone has built the model and can offer any advice it would be gratefully received. I know that I have to scratch build a rear seat as one isn't included in the kit. I'm currently watching the Dukes Of Hazard series to make notes for the build, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
  12. No Charge for Tables, No Charge for Parking and no restriction on Club members exhibitors. Go on you know it makes sense.

    Just looked at the Bovington web site. The entrance price is £14.00 and as many visits as you like or a year. They want to charge any additional modeller after 5 £10.00 plus VAT which is £12 and no extra visits I expect . You might as well buy a normal ticket for an extra £2 and be able to visit as many times as you like. I don't know why model shows have started doing this as it doesn't bring much more revenue. We worked it out after our Modelfest held in September and came to the conclusion the extra revenue was so minimal that it just didn't justify time and effort. So we decided that Clubs attending our show would never be charged for any extra members after that magic number of five.

    I spoke to one trader at Middle Wallop Shoe yesterday and he was mentioned that he was undecided at the moment due to the two day commitment. I hope that both days will be well represented as I was speaking to a friend yesterday our concern that one day would be well supported and the other not so much. That wouldn't be good for Bovington or their visitors, hopefully we as modellers could come to an acceptable agreement on which club covers which days. Even if that is the case it still would be a bit of a disappointment if there is a lack of traders on either day. This really is turning into a real conundrum .

    Chis57 Your guy is a little wide of the mark you couldn't have a model show with just traders as it wouldn't be a " Model Show," then the clue is in the title. Traders rely on the modellers more for their income. Little Johnnie or Jessie visiting with Mom/Dad or both will see something they like on a Club display and may get bought the kit probably even just a starter kit. Not much income for your average Trader no matter how many attend. Modellers will attend with a shopping list, bulging wallet if they are lucky and an eye for a bargain. Lots of income for the trader. Can't have on without the other for a good show.
