  1. Painting a 1/72 B-36 without going bankrupt...?

    Another way is to use Tamiya AS-12 Bare Metal Silver (which is probably very close to car silver paint, only more expensive ), with a dusting coat of Alclad Chrome for added shine without breaking the bank.
  2. What have you purchased 9

    Three books by Gordon Corrigan (with thanks to @sinnerboy): Mud, Blood and Poppycock: Britain and the Great War Blood, Sweat and Arrogance: The Myths of Churchill's War The Second World War: A Military History I may be some time...
  3. Lyn Macdonald

    I blame you for the fact I've just bought three of his books. Actually, thank you for the recommendation . And thank the maker for Abebooks, or I'd be in the doghouse...
  4. How do i restore transparencies?

    Or a nail buffer - here's one as an example, although you can probably find them cheaper elsewhere: http://www.boots.com/beauty/nails/nail-tools/boots-4-way-buffer-block-10111164

    Many thanks, Nigel. It sounds lovely!

    Yum! Just out of interest, what dressing do you use on the nectarine salad?
  7. George - very, very glad to hear that Mattie's going to be OK. As for the seatbelts... I would have taken twice as long, and they would have been covered in glue fingerprints. Excellent work.
  8. B-17G Aluminum Overcast

    Thank you for these!
  9. Pet hates.

    I have to agree .

    To be fair, the "rule" (as I learned it) was a little more extensive, and makes a great deal more sense: I before E, except after C when the sound is "E", or when used as an "A" as in neighbour or weigh.

    Excellent! A lovely model and a nicely different scheme. Most impressive
  12. The closest we were going to get to any kind of real Lensman adaptation was with J. Michael Straczynski writing it, but that folded in 2014. From Wikipedia:
  13. I couldn't believe my ears

    My emphasis, but it was there in plain sight. At no point was it said that the customer was "hacked off", merely "chastened". So, all appears to be well.
  14. Excellent photos - thank you for sharing them!
  15. New Forum Software Update

    But, they've integrated Edge so deeply into the version of Windows 10 installed on Surface products that we have to tell those same customers to not use Surface or Surface Pros, as even if they use another browser, Edge will still break some standards-compliant functions. It's absurd. Linux on a Surface device - okey-dokey
