  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Northern Model Show 2017 - now with trader and exhibitor list

    Is there anywhere I can see pics of this show?
  4. 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?
  5. 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

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

    Hahahahaha! Find out the hard way did you? lol Gordon
  8. 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
  9. 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

    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
  11. Weapons Straps

    Hi all, I have been trying to get into 1/35th figure modelling recently and I am wondering what the best method for producing realistic weapons straps is? Thanks in advance for any help you can send my way. Gordon
  12. The Scottish National Scale Model Show is on at the Dewars Centre in Perth on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April 2017. The show website has now been updated with all the traders, clubs and SIG’s who plan to attend the 2017 show. I have no affiliation with any of the organisers but I am assuming the 2017 show will be the same set up as the 2016 one in that it will be spread over two halls again. All being well I hope to be in attendance on the Saturday of what is still my favourite Scottish model show. The website: http://www.scotnats.org/ Gordon

    I made it to Telford on Saturday and was at the very front of the queue of the non IPMS members. Probably saw all of you from this site but I was taken up with the stalls and the traders I am afraid. Was quite interested by the Zoukei Mura Phantom and what I saw on the Airfix stand for 2017. Not so excited by the forthcoming Revell releases. Woke up today with the usual post model show feelings of just wanting to build kits. There are so many models out there and not enough time in which to do them. Please waste no more of your precious time on this thread dear modeller, you have got so many kits still to build.

    Thanks for the updates Radleigh. If I see you then I shall come up and say thanks.
  15. SMW 2016

    Hi Radleigh, All being well I shall be there early on the Saturday morning and will be approaching from the M6 along the A5. Thanks in advance for your help.
