  1. 1/350 HMS Meteorite

    Nicely done Stuart, the little additions make all the difference to these kits. All the best Chris
  2. Has anybody heard from, or know anything about TonyTiger?

    Ive not heard anything from Tony either, will watch this thread for updates. Likewise i do hope he's OK, great guy to chat with. All the best Chris
  3. Elon Musk For President Of The World!

    Yes his car and astronaut was straight out of the film Heavy Metal, who's opening scene is an astronaut getting into a corvette stingray and driving it all the way back to earth from a space shuttlle, through re-entry to a parachute landing and then driving home. He's just going the other way. Chris

  5. What have you purchased / been gifted

    Well wee hours of this morning won a Cottage Industry resin 1/32 model of Fulton's Nautilus, a submarine demonstrated to the french on the river seine in 1800. Bargain at £21, should have been £57! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nautilus_(1800_submarine) All the best Chris
  6. RN C Class submarine 1/144

    Hi all, heres a small update. All the frame have been cut-out, finally positioned, squared off and glued the best i can. The deck has been cut-out and glued in place, which helps give it a little better rigidity as the acrylic rod does flex slightly. Next im going to concentrate on the rear rudder and dive planes, working from the aft, forard. Heres a photo of were we are. All the best Chris
  7. USS Pegasus PHM-1. 1:200

    Great review Dave, i must admit this is a model i am sorely tempted to get being a little offbeat, having seen your 1/350 one. All the best Chris

    Hi Baron, New one on me LOL Mel should have had a world war 2 midget submarine on his arm. anyway heres a link to the kit mentioned https://www.specialhobby.eu/en/our-own-production/special-armour/biber-trailer-1-72.html?cur=1&force_sid=9do23pv09vk7rq9run09178523&lang=1&redirected=1 Chris
  11. 1/18 Batpod with Catwoman

    Gents i cant disagree, Catwoman was a joy to paint, getting the skin tone and the leather tone right. It took a few coats to get the suits seat right, thats my excuse anyway Chris
  12. RN C Class submarine 1/144

    So it begins, first up is to mark out the frames, reducing the overall diameter by 1mm, allowing for sheeting of the hull. A notable thing to do is to mark the cross on the frames, as this is needed for alignment in regard to the deck casing. With circle cutter in hand ive cut out 8 of the 15 frames so far (see end photo) and spaced them on a 3mm dia acrylic rod. They are on loose at present, will square up and super glue in place once all frames on. All the best Chris

    Just won a 1/35 trumpeter Stryker with mine plow £25 bargain. Was looking at the AFV club one but found out you have to buy an add on for the plow springs and chains, which are included in the trumpeter kit as standard. All the best Chris
