  1. Karrier Bantam Domestic fire Tender. Help required

    Ian That may be the plan I have - at least of the base-vehicle. Let me check on the weekend (busy at hospital today and tomorrow. If it is I will scan and PM to you. Tim
  2. Karrier Bantam Domestic fire Tender. Help required

    Ian I believe Les Freathy built a model of one of these some time back. Also have a scale plan of the flatbed around somewhere. Tim
  3. SOUTH AFRICA - AVRO ANSON HELP…

    Hi all He may have been flying out of either Ysterplaat in Cape Town or Wingfield Naval Station. Both had Ansons doing anti-sub patrols. I have a book about the history of the Wingfield base and can try to see what there is to share if you PM me. The only other bases near the coast were in Port Elizabeth and Durban. ASAIK they only had fighter units and training flights, but there are other SAAFers on the forum who may be able to assist better.
  4. Help to identify vehicle, please

    The Milicast is a good option. There used to be a white metal kit out there too, but not sure if still around.
  5. 1/72 figures and wheels

    Airfix also do a soft plastic set of USAF ground crew. Still available as I got one for my son recently. Tim H
  6. RAF/SAAF pictures WWII

    Thanks Chariie Nice pics - really lekker. That one pic with Table Mountain in the rear is probably from either Wingfield or Ysterplaat. Tim H
  7. Help from the Coastal Craft aficionados needed.

    Thanks @seadog Tim
  8. Dear all Copy and paste from wrong post in Aircraft group. Please assist if you can. I am looking for some long out of print model-magazine articles and was wondering if any of the longstanding members may have these and be willing to scan and share. Battle magazine was a Military Modelling offshoot in the late 1970's and they had a great series of articles on Allied Softskins by Mike Coniford. I have no 1 to 10 and 12, but am missing March 1977 (no 11) and those subsequent to April 1977 (13 ff, not sure how many more there were). Any chance that one or more of you would have them and be willing to share? If so please OM/DM me and we can share email addresses. This is not copyright infringement as these articles would be less than 20% of an issue (about 3 pages each) and are not even available on e-bay/google or in libraries. Thanks in advance Tim H

    Hi Stuart Yes, the hull is fairly accurate if you read John Lambert's works. But this is the later hull. The Revell hull is good for the earlier boats, but the topside is not correct - wrong guns and side sponsons. The Airfix RAF boat hull is good for some of the MGB's. The older Airfix magazine and various Model Boats articles from the 70/80's give the details of how to do the conversions. I have some of them in hard copy and a few may be available as pdf. Email me via DM and I will see what I can find for you. Tim H South Africa
