  1. Bf me109 fuselage center line

    Hi, getting round to putting all the small bits on the 2 Airfix BF109E'S ,wing guns ,etc . 6 tiny bits to each model ,does anyone make replacements in brass . I know there are guns available .I had to use a razor saw to get them off the sprue and one ariel mast broke ,can still use it . I think a complete set for each model kit of these tiny parts would be a great idea . PS ,are seat belts in 1/72 a bit of a pain or are they ok to work with ?
  2. Bf me109 fuselage center line

    Hi ,looking through an model making magazine there was an article about building a 1/72 109, in the article he says that 109s had a center line panel line running along most of the top and the bottom of the fuselage having spent long time getting rid of the seam lines on 4 1/72 109s i am a bit peeved to say the least . Had a look on the interweb ,most models of 109s show no such line . Any views on the subject would be helpful.

  12. Hi ,when did Frog start including a picture frame in with their kits?I remember you built the model then cut the picture from the top of the box. Can't remember which kits i built ,it was Frog that did it wasn't it?
  13. Very nice ,you mentioned losing small parts ,you could try £stretchers .They do 5 little plastic boxes for under a £1 . And the other pound shops do bigger boxes as well.

  17. Police Officer "So let me get this straight ,all this rubbish you have taken is for use in making dioramas ?" Badder "Er ,yes officer " Police Officer ,turning away and shaking head "Why Do They Always Come On To My Beat ?" As always just joking . I might give your idea about Bricks a go .
  18. Hasegawa Spitfire 1/48

    Hi ,i was reading the Hasegawa history of the Spitfire V111 in the instructions sheet ,they say that the Mark V111 had a lengthened Fuselage ,does that mean the kit is accurate ?

  20. Hi ,re Sea foam ,can you buy it in GB ?,and your barbed wire ,is it home made ?Still got to finish putting plaster on my where are you going diorama . I tried making a small bush using a dried grape vine(?) ,it looks a bit like a Monkey Puzzle Tree ,didn't stick many lengths of fishing line to it before i but the Basil on it.
  21. Saw a bit of a programme on the al (sorry can't spell the rest ) news channel about the apple stuff made in China ,about one % of the prize of an iphone is the cost of making it . And the poor Chinese sods that make them are so over worked and stressed out ,some of them have killed themselves .
  22. Hi ,you left a sad comment on one of my posts ,please explain why i am sad to use old model kit boxes to store 

    my unmade kits ?

    I haven't got a lot of storage place ,so anything i can do to make room helps ,not really into the collecting part of the hobby if that 

    what you mean ,all my kits will get made sooner or later.

      Hi, only sad that you couldn't find your Revell kit, nothing else. I should have removed it when you said later you found it, as I have now done. Take care.

  23. Italeri 1/35 LVT-2 Amtrac

    Hi ,finally got round to putting the .50 right .Then the left side track broke in the worst place ,on the front sprocket . Oh dear ,i said to myself ,getting the track off manage to break the front sprocket off along with that jet sort of thing at the back where the water comes out . Also two of the grab handles on the sides ,and the top roller . Getting sick of having to go back to finished models to repair them . Going to repair the track with CA ,having first brushed some Tricky Stick on .It helps CA stick better ,used it before on tank tracks . Ignore the hidden content thingy ,nothing there clicked on the wrong thing
