  1. 1:72 Lynx kit questions

    Daft question alert ...RAB? Anyway no manpower so its all a mute point ....maybe thats a good thing....thats a whole different debate and not for this forum....i really must try and get some pics of my dodgy efforts on here.
  2. 1:72 Lynx kit questions

    I can say from experience ....that there is no incentive to hold stock....coz there isnt an awful lot example if you have so many helicopters x then you have x plus the bear minimum extra. Canibization is a logistics solution these days....and dont get me on split pins....j dont know if you are ex service but its hand to mouth these days.....gen dit

  8. 1:72 Lynx kit questions

    Dave,you would be suprised what is or at least was knocking about prior to SDSR....the thing that springs to mind is a 'Phantom only' telebrief test set used on SK mk4 even had an 892nas local serial number etched out on it....30+ years after the navy lost them....GPMG gate mount...was doing a survey of them using drawings marked for Whilwind and Belvedere....all this new fangled stuff aint what it used to be
  9. Airfix 1/48th Merlin

    Hmm possibly but since we don't do eagle bases anymore and operate out of a mob then it may as well be sky blue pink....under the current climate I think we should be grateful that we have the RAF's cast offs...but that's another subject. I think you are probably right plasto ...just right for coming in from the sea on a DS day to launch steely eyed bootnecks and let'em do their stuff .....etc. etc. It could of course be the cheap thing to do...paint or engines ..paint or gearbox .....paint or well you fill in the blanks
  10. DH Sea Devon C Mk.20

    Nice ....but its short of another two engines lol....oh no that'll be Herons....the admirals barge had particulary comfortable seats.
  11. Airfix 1/48th Merlin

    Hmm they would been i mk3s /mk3i depends which way you wanna spin it...interim mk3 with folding(occasionally) head but not folding tails....hence interim
  12. Sea King HU 5

  13. USAF F-5 Aggressors Part 2

    I love this....perhaps we can put some colour in to UK aircraft.....hmm no chance ....variations of grey for a change
  14. Airfix 1/48th Merlin

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the merlin mk 4 and 4a will be grey just like the mk2....looks ok ....only not green someone said it was to reconnect with our amphbious heritage....the cynic in me says its cheaper.
  15. USAF F-5 Aggressors Part 1
