  1. a question about Zimmerit on tiger I tanks

    i will stick my neck out and say flat horizontal plates probably didn't have zimmerit, as it was supposed to prevent magnetic mines from sticking to the metal plate, if you've got the mine on to a flat horizontal bit gravity is in your favour.
  2. Self Loading Rifle 1/35

    Yes, there is a big hole in market for Brit cold war period stuff other than tanks, need soldiers and soft skins. Be nice see an Austin K series truck too, that's all that seems to appear in my Dad's REME National Serice pics from his time in Germany.
  3. Hesco barriers

    Get some pe mesh and bag of model railway ballast and make your own?
  4. Cats, they're taking over. Part 2(?)

    Our 3 legged old lady finally lost her long fight with FCV today, the other 3 in the family seem a little lost without the matriarch to boss them around.
  5. Best Bandai Star Wars kit

    I'm going to say of the kits I've built so far the ones I've enjoyed the most are the various trooper figures. The one I would not recommend to start with is the Y-wing, all those small pipe parts, what a nightmare to get in. Be prepared for breakages.
  6. Cats, they're taking over. Part 2(?)

    Yup, at least two of mine have done that, Fallen out the bedroom window on to the conservatory roof and then come straight back in and did it again. Think they must have enjoyed the slide down the roof. One (no longer with us) has even done it whilst drunk! He used to like drinking the water out of the blocked garage guttering, great until autumn came and the apple tree would drop windfalls into the pools where they would ferment.
  7. Help me assemble a stash (1/35)

    ah, pork scratching built, for the what if section then
  8. Help me assemble a stash (1/35)

    but can you build a whole animal from the "stash", or just cutaways?
  9. Help me assemble a stash (1/35)

    i'm finding the title of the thread itself funny! Surely if you assemble a stash, you just end up with a collection of made up model kits??
  10. Thunderbird 3 replica

    I wonder if it's the same one that used to be on the front in Blackpool up by the pleasure beach?
  11. What's With The Red & White Nuts???

    Hmm, I don't think you could remove the red nuts and have the rim explode off, as soon as you'd start to loosen them the air would begin to leak and you'd know your being a nominated for a Darwin. Though if any of you feel like demonstrating it's possible to remove the nuts and have the rim explode off, please post the video so the health and safety audit can use it.
  12. Cats, they're taking over. Part 2(?)

    No It's human feline hybrid.... I for one welcome our new feline overlords. What do you mean new, they've been our overlords since at least the time of the pharaohs!
  13. difference between MERDC grey desert variant and reddish variant?

    You mean like all those colour photos in the section at the bottom of the menu to left of the screen on that website?
  14. Cats, they're taking over. Part 2(?)

    I am groot!, says the cat.
