  1. Abingdon IPMS Show

    Yeah, can you provide me with adrenaline/sleeping pills so I can make it between night shifts?
  2. IPMS Farnborough Modelfest 2017

    That was noted by several people as I went round, think something was said about there being a military event on or something? Still was a good show, and finally managed to track down the legendary Revell Hunter!

  4. IPMS Farnborough Modelfest 2017

    I may have missed it, but can't find what the entrance price is on the site? Not an issue per se, but would be nice to know!
  5. Airfix 2018

    Me too, in my 30's, but then living about 40 minutes drive from Gaydon, having a dad who owned a Marina (Or was it an Ital?) and having an interest in British cars myself, that may not be too surprising....
  6. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    I was thinking it looks like it belongs in a Latin American air force from the 50's/60's
  7. Cockpit photos of French interwar aircraft.

    Certainly more refined than google. And that MS.230 cockpit? Sparse doesn't cover it!
  8. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Was the Gannet COD.4 a two seater?
  9. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Would that not look better on the SR.177?
  10. New Ship Related Releases

    Complete with pre-whif aircraft The Furmer Mk.1 and Blackburn Squares according to the website.
  11. Cockpit photos of French interwar aircraft.

    Thanks for the tip!

    @Jan Polc If you want some Whif ideas, the SR.177 garnered interest from the RAF, RN, Germany and even Japan(!) perhaps that'd be a source for colour schemes. I'd imagine they're be similar to the Lightning squadron schemes for RAF examples, Dark Sea Grey over white for FAA examples, German colours may be Basaultgrau and Lichtgrau and I'd imagine all over metal for Japan? Though others more in the know might have a better idea. Perhaps with a pair of wingtip Firestreak or even (whisper it) Fireflash missiles might be an idea, but they might look too big and ungainly, you'd have to check.

    Woohoo! I feel a whif coming on
  14. There's generally less parts, some cockpit detail but not as much as say Airfix, little in the way of breakable small details, though there is the option to detail if one so wishes. Seems the Mustang has a fair few parts, others have less sticky out bits... https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/2/9/2/101292-28-instructions.pdf
  15. In that case can I offer up the Hobbyboss Easy-build range for him to consider too? Reasonable range, also contains a twin engine design or three, quite accurate (I believe their MiG-3 is currently considered the best representation in 1/72) and most important when you're 5, not that expensive at all. They are more simplified than most models, but don't overly suffer as a result of this. Below is an example from a well known web shop, which for some reason classes it as die-cast , other suppliers are available... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hobbyboss-Scale-P-51C-Mustang-Diecast/dp/B001ACDVI0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1504277424&sr=8-2&keywords=hobbyboss+easy+build Oh and here's an example I've done 2015-06-06 18.17.16
