  1. Glasgow IPMS show

    I have received a mailshot from Wendy Myers of the Aviation Book Centre this morning to say that she will be in attendance at the Glasgow Modelfest on Saturday. Gordon
  2. Glasgow IPMS show

    I am looking forward to being at Glasgow. Not sure which traders are planning on being there but it is always a good show.
  3. A13 Cruiser Mk III/IV/IVa

    Many thanks for the links and the help Jack. That kind of information is exactly what I was looking for. The Crusader tracks are not the same as the A13 but for the Bronco 1/35th model they may just have to do. Gordon
  4. A13 Cruiser Mk III/IV/IVa

    While we are on the subject...does anyone know whether the A13 Cruiser tank used the same tracks as the Crusader tank because I am sure that replacement tracks are available for that model. It was originally an Italeri kit but has subsequently and quite recently been repackaged by Tamiya.
  5. Scale Scotland 2017 (Edinburgh)

    I like the Scale Scotland venue but I am a punter and not a trader. I think having signs above the vendors and the competition tables at chest height and demos done by guys like Adam Wilder and Kristof Pulincx is superb. The problem with the venue though is that the rooms can be very cramped and warm. Sometimes one needs to step back at a model show and take in all the kits and stock that each vendor has on sale and at Scale Scotland that is not possible. It might be sacrilege to suggest but perhaps they could make some rooms traders only and not have the club tables in there? Aside from that I really enjoyed the show and am looking forward to next year.
  6. Scale Scotland 2017 (Edinburgh)

    That's a bummer that Modelling Tools are not going to be at the show. Can we expect to see you up here for the Glasgow Modelfest in October by any chance? The last two years the Ingliston Park and ride was free and seeing it was a Saturday it was virtually empty when I turned up at 9.55am. It takes only about 5 mins to walk from there to the Hilton Hotel. I believe Adam Wilder is making the journey from the US again this year and Kristof Pulincx is also meant to be doing a demonstration. Both are fabulous modellers and it should be great to see and hear them both. Should any modeller from the South of England manage to find a cheap flight to Edinburgh airport that day then the possibility exists of coming out the airport terminal, walking the 200yds or so to the Hilton, enjoying the day at the show before walking back to the airport and getting the return flight back down south. Just a thought. Hope everyone enjoys the show - I am really looking forward to it.
  7. A13 Cruiser Mk III/IV/IVa

    I started building the Bronco A13 Cruiser tank with the individual track links and found the contact points between the links to be so small that they kept breaking and coming apart. The kit is in a half built state firmly back in my stash with a box that contains literally hundreds of track links. It is a shame because the rest of the kit is fine but until someone releases either a resin or white metal set of tracks for this kit then I am afraid I would place this model in the unbuildable class.
  8. Northern Model Show 2017 - now with trader and exhibitor list

    Is there anywhere I can see pics of this show?
  9. Northern Model Show 2017 - now with trader and exhibitor list

    Getting to this show by public transport would be made so much easier for me if the organisers could just switch it from a Sunday to a Saturday. Is there any chance of that ever happening?
  10. Scottish Nationals Perth - April 29th & 30th

    Hope all you traders make it to Perth ok. I come up on the train from Glasgow on the Saturday and usually get to show at about 10.50am (ish). Every turn round the halls usually results in me buying something or seeing something or wanting something that I have just got to have. Just how it goes at the shows I guess. Anyway hope everyone has a good one. Gordon
  11. Scottish Nationals Perth - April 29th & 30th

    Hi, Do you still carry all of the Ultracast ranges and will you be bringing them to Perth? Gordon
  12. Weapons Straps

    Hahahahaha! Find out the hard way did you? lol Gordon
  13. Weapons Straps

    Hi Mitch, Thanks for the advice re the foil from the top of wine bottles and weapons straps. What is Kneadtite? Is that the same as Magic Sculpt? Can I buy it in the UK? I have some Magic Sculpt and although I have seen and read of modellers using Kneadtite to sculpt figures it is not a product I have used or ever seen. Gordon
  14. Weapons Straps

    Thanks for the advice re: lead sheet and the link Mart. I do not have anything like this but it looks like the perfect thing to try. Gordon
  15. Weapons Straps

    Hi Chris, Metal foil from the top of wine bottles! I would never have thought of that. Need to take up drinking now. Thanks for the advice. Gordon
