  1. A little 748

    Superb resin build.Really captures the character of the Budgie.Unusual livery too.
  2. 26 decals Britannia.

    "Look at life" also produced a short film called the car has wings featuring a BUAF Carvair.The only blooper being the Rolls Royce dart soundtrack as the ATEL98 gets airborne! Back to 26 and the Britannia, I would like to see another Redcoat sheet this time for G-AOVS, The huge R on the fin being in a Red circle, perhaps including fictional "Redair titles" as worn by the aircraft for the BBC drama series Buccaneer.As already mentioned Air Spain would be a nice addition.I remember seeing One of their Brits at BigginHill after it had been purchased by IAS for spares use.
  3. 1/72 Airfix DC-3

  4. 1/72 Airfix DC-3

    As for aftermarket accessories for the Dakota I personally would like to see in 1/72 and 48th not only seats but Transair style landing gear doors and Engine cowlings with the gills open.Whilst in wishlist mode how about decals to build examples of Ruskin Air Services,Harvest Air,Northwest(G-AMPY circa '86)and Rig air aircraft?
  5. 1/72 Airfix DC-3

    Very nice AP.Cambrian upgraded the cabins on their Dakotas during the late 1960's and reduced the seating from 34 or 36 to 24.The single seats IIRC were on the port side.
  6. Phantom F-4J to an F-4J(UK) ~WIP

    Having looked at the link I wonder if OxfordDiecast produce a Sherpa minibus........
  7. Phantom F-4J to an F-4J(UK) ~WIP

    Yes, I had read somewhere that one of the fleet did not have the Empty(never realised that) housings fitted.I knew I'd burn my fingers if I started dabbling with fast jets! I have to agree with your previous comments IP I am very much just an assembler of styrene and have little interest in exhibition or competition, I take my hat off to those experienced and skilled individuals who do. Happy and smooth progress with your F4 build Sam,looking forward to seeing it.
  8. Phantom F-4J to an F-4J(UK) ~WIP

    Many thanks,Phil that was a lightning fast response.I've been looking for an age at some sprue photos on line and was getting double vision trying to spot the parts!

    Can anybody with knowledge of this kit please advise if it includes the intake mounted Radar Warning receivers as carried by the 74 Squadron jets? Cheers Guy
  10. 1/72 Airfix DC-3

    Sadly I very much doubt it, Mike, unless anybody else knows differently.Despite the almost limitless liveries civil subjects do not seem commercially viable(No pun intended)The Airfix release filled a gap but I for one still await the definitive Dakota kit. Many of the Esci versions of the DC 3 kits had seats included and a cargo door plug that contained the single airstair door.If one is modelling a 70'ds or later operators airplane then the seats from the Airfix Skyvan are ideal.
  11. order status

    I too am awaiting an order placed Eleven days ago.I've had no response to a polite enquiry regarding my order.Buyer beware.I'll certainly do some better research prior to ordering goods from organisations I have not dealt with before.
  12. Rubber tyres

    Many thanks for your reply.As I am increasingly using acrylics I'll try the paint and wash methods.Previously lightly scuffing the tread with fine wet and dry has helped too.
  13. What a super pair of regal whispering giants.The big vac form is a real show stopper especially considering it was built a while back.The Roden model is a beauty too.I think I am right in saying that Monarch is the second oldest UK airline still operating under its original name(Notwithstanding it's .com rather than airlines these days)The oldest being Loganair.
