  1. What have you purchased / been gifted

    Is a 1:72 RC-135 big enough to carry him 6-10 counties ?

    1. Shrinking chocolate bars. Latest batch of Doubledeckers not much bigger than 'fun-size'. 2. 'Fun size' chocolate bars- oh no they aren't !
  3. Gnatty thread

    Nothing insurmountable so far, just slightly disappointed it hasn't been as simple as I was hoping for. It's one of those kits that you get to the end of, and say well at least it's over now, you made it, ....and OMG THERE'S ANOTHER ONE OF THE BLIGHTERS IN THE STASH !

    Got one of these in the stash, watching with interest
  5. Gnatty thread

    Slow progress, partially due to being maimed by the carpet monster... ( pulled muscle, can't twist round to pick dropped bits off the floor ). So far, this kit has been plain gnasty. "Starter Kit" my posterior- if I'd been given this as a youngster to get into modelling I wouldn't be making them now ! Seems to have been designed by someone with a particular dislike of modellers - eg glue the delicate breakable bits on first which just happen to be right where your fingers need to go to press the fuselage together.... Fuselage halves joined together, next up attaching the wings...which have been designed to pull the rear pilot out of the cockpit if you're not paying attention while dry-fitting. Wonder how I learned that ?

    This being a vehicle related rant, wouldn't a TOW be more appropriate ?

    Were they hobbit seats , or was it Mr Creosote's twin brother ?
  8. Road Trip! Visiting Coventry from Oklahoma

    Used to work with a bunch of people from Bartlesville, Oklahoma. It sounded like a slightly duller version of Coventry....! If he's driving, then there's always the Hannants warehouse.... just saying...

    Count yourself lucky she didn't then proceed to pull out a pile of out-of-date coupons for the checkout assistant to scan !!!
  10. Road Trip! Visiting Coventry from Oklahoma

    Being sent to Coventry ? You have my sympathy.... The Midland Air Museum sells some model kits, as well as having lots of 1:1 scale exhibits.
  11. ..and re-issued the Skycrane...

    Grr.. spam from Amazon saying they think I might be interested in an Airfix Nimrod for the bargain price of £157 !
  13. Guess I need to get saving for that An-225 after all !
  14. Broken down. Again!

    First time I've EVER heard the wide-mouthed-frog being described as 'decent' !
  15. Broken down. Again!

    Anyone else completely mis-read that as horse bound ? Back to the 19th century....
