  1. Star Trek Discovery

    I love it. It's very different from previous Star Treks, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Before it started I was fervently hoping it wouldn't be rubbish, and trying to prepare myself in case it was, but I didn't need to. Some episodes have definitely been better than others - there are a couple of weak ones, but there have been a couple of absolute crackers as well. Unlike some commenters, I really like the visual stuff, especially the Klingon ships and armour. It reminds me of the design work done on the Lord of the Rings films, where they really tried to create a coherent visual culture for each of the different races.
  2. Model of a model club display 1/12

    Brilliant! Very creative, and well executed too.
  3. Hello Folks from Papa4ways

    You're right: there are some very skilled builders here and you can learn loads. The trick is to be inspired, not intimidated. Dive in.
  4. Hello!

    I, too, look forward to seeing the Vulcan. It can be a challenging kit, that one, but it rewards the effort. Good idea to start on some simpler things and build up to your giant Spitfire - my Dad, another experienced modeller who's had a good few gaps in the hobby over the years, is doing the same with the 1/24 Mosquito.
  5. Primer for brushing

    Thanks for the review, Giorgio. I've taken to spraying my rattle cans out in the car park, unless it's raining, in which case I just put up with living in a cloud for an hour or so. The Vallejo primers sound well worth a try.
  6. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Maybe it's my age, but that's what I call a proper Ferrari.
  7. NT-33A Variable Stability Simulator

    Very interesting, and completely new to me. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
  8. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Spotted a tidy-looking Sierra XR-4x4 on the way home this evening. A blast from the past.
  9. Blue Steel Vulcans in anti-flash white

    There's a downloadable instruction sheet on the Fundekals website that might be useful for some profiles. Very nice decals, too. That indicates that 83 Squadron might fit your requirements as well, AND you've got a surviving airframe in XL426 if you want to tell an interesting story.
  10. RAF Blue Phantoms

    Ooh. Thanks for the heads-up!
  11. A re-introduction - it's been a while...

    Couldn't agree more on the Cold War front - machinery to stir the soul.
  12. Airfix Vulcan

    That sounds about right! I'm not much for aftermarket add-ons (don't have the budget, in all honesty) but I think some less murder-inducing intakes would be a good investment for the next one.
  13. A beautiful collection. Thanks for sharing these. Some real stunners and memories in there. The head-on photo of the blue Sea Harrier FA2 in the first collection is particularly atmospheric, and I've had two glasses of wine so I'd better stop before I get to the Tornados.
  14. PK-106 Buccaneer. A whif

    Interesting! I'm in. What's the plan ... or is that still classified?
