  1. Working Lift Bridge Diorama

    Hi, I was stationed in Singleton and used to drive that way passed it but I crossed it on my many trips between Sydney and Townsville via that road.I can remember waiting for it to close and finding it quite narrow. I am off to google maps to refresh my memory! I'm to busy with work at present to model so at least I can watch your mastery! cheers Rod
  2. Working Lift Bridge Diorama

    I seal foam with watered down white glue, sometimes use plaster & then seal with white glue.Loving watching the build, I use to drive over that bridge often. Cheers Rodney
  3. A pair of Blue Tits would be nice! I've got the Owl and the Woodpecker. But I would settle for a new tool 1/72 Mosquito, RAAF decals preferred. Cheers
  4. I'd be up for a Proctor and Vega Gull in 1/72. Any chance of a Miles Merlin in the future? Cheers Rod

  7. Kon Tiki

    Hi, I'm looking to build a model of the Kon Tiki. There is a Mantua kit 1/18 and some out of China 1/16 (on ebay). I can't find a reasonable set of drawings, does anyone know of any? (what I have found on the web so far is pretty crummy.) If I can source scaled drawings I'll scratch build it, if not I'll look at an existing kit. Has anyone had a go at the Kon Tiki.I loved reading about it as a lad and want to build a good quality model. Cheers Rodney

  12. Hi, Building 6 Autoblinda's, one is an AB41 from Centauro Armoured Division Tunisia 1943 I have a set of Armo decals (Africa 1941-43 part 2) the crummy instruction sheet is a b&w photocopy and its impossible to discern between the colours.The vehicle is either overall panzergrau (Humbrol 67) or Dark green (Hu 30) or Sabbia (Hu 102) There is a Churchill III 25th tank brigade Tunisia 1943 which is one of the above colours different to the AB41, and Carro Commando M40 in the same colour as the AB41. Any assistance appreciated. Cheers Rod
