  1. That is a great finish and the extra details that you have added enhances the model. Robert

    2019 is the 50th anniversary of the moon landings. I am sure Boeing played a part in it and they have a Command module and Lander there. Robert

  8. Mike the checkerboards are still decals that I printed out on my computer, no way I could have painted those ! Yes it is 1/72 Thanks for all the likes. Robert
  9. Thanks for all the comments guys, very much appreciated. I used Revell Aqua Color Carmine Red 36136. Regards Robert
  10. Hi everyone, There have been a few F-89 Scorpions in RFI recently and this is mine that I finished for Telford. The kit is the Revell kit and I used the design of the original decals to print my own for the checks as the white had turned yellow on the decal sheet. Masks were created for the star and bars as the ones on the decal sheet were not well produced. Vallejo and Revell acrylics were used. Robert

    But it was a nice tradition that they started. Also as shown it is customer perception, Airfix started something that modellers looked forward to now it has been stopped and customers are wondering why. It is all about customer service which Airfix/Hornby should take a good look at if they want to stay in business. Robert
  12. Whirlybird??

    They are still around as they were at Telford. I picked up their price list for 2017/18 and the British Phantoms are still on there as coming soon. Robert
