  1. Revell 1/48 F-15E with bombs

    “Novice building skills”? I’m going to ‘reverse bookmark’ and ignore your future builds when you become good 😉 that’s stunning work!
  2. Do you get to keep the 40ft shipping container it comes in?
  3. Roald Dahl's Gladiator...

    There was a magazine article on building it in 1:48 (I think) somewhere recently, possibly Scale Aircraft Modelling as it or Airfix Model World I generally buy. I’ll try and see if I can fInd which issue it was later.
  4. Italeri MH-53J Pave Low III

    Italeri were showing a release of a MH-53J Pave Low III for release in 2017 earlier this year. It’s never shown as pre release on Hannants website. Looking at Italeri’s website it shows as out of stock. Has anyone actually seen it anywhere in the world, or have any idea when/if it’s coming?

    I thought you meant MP’s from Westminster - visions of Boris Johnson trying to confuse Johnny Foreigner
  6. TVs best characters

    Roddie McMillan and Robbie Coltrane are both distantly related to me!

    Gordon Jackson as Cowley in The Professionals
  8. Airfix 2018

    Surely that’s a typo? Shouldn’t it be 5/119th?

    My late father always decreed ‘proper snow’ to start when measured in feet not inches. On 1948 when he came home from Germany on leave to Galloway in S W Scotland, the town he lived in was totally cut off by blizzards so all physically fit men were ‘requested’ to assist with snow clearance of the railway line. The plan was to have men cutting steps with the front men at the top and working down to the track. As the story went digging snow was warm work so he took his army battle dress blouse off as he worked, suddenly one his mates called out “Mac, yer jacket!” He looked round to see it where he left it - on top of a telegraph pole, luckily the snow was so firm he walked along the drift bent down picked it up and carried on digging!
  10. Some help with English towns

    Nothing wrong with that - I’ve spent many a happy hour at the Victoria Ground watching the Pools courtesy of a mate who was kit man there, until he moved to Boro. Always a great laugh getting off the team bus and seeing people thinking who the **** are they! Free coffees too 😀
  11. Qatar Buys 24 Typhoon

    It’s the old Premiership football conundrum - what to spend all our money on?....
  12. Pet hates.

    Or snowing heavily. Usually owners of sliver or silvery grey cars, never the bright orange or luminous yellow ones
  13. Reputation Number

    See in Cambridge you’d need several heaps, it’s cheaper to take parking tickets than pay for a full day parking
  14. Some help with English towns

    County boundaries are great, often something obvious like a river. Where I was born (Stockton On Tees) the County boundary was a railway line - one side Yorkshire, the other other County Durham. I was almost a Yorkshireman, a close shave I remind a Yorkshireman of my acquaintance regularly by calling him a Southerner.....
