  1. Su-27 Flanker - FINALLY DONE!

    Probably the most accurate in outline of the early 1/72 Flanker kits, though Ken Duffey ( @Flankerman ) will be your man on that. I believe the Hasegawa's fuselage was too wide and the Italeri's nose was too big.
  2. Scimitars and Sea Venoms - Colour film

    I've seen that video. It seems to be one of a number on which the commentary sounds as though it is generated rather than spoken. You get some odd rhythms and pronunciations, e.g. meegee for MiG. At least, they've always been migs to me.
  3. Spitfire Mk 24 80 Squadron RAF

    Smashing model. I think that particular airframe was the Mk 24 option in the 1/32 Matchbox kit.
  4. Spitfire Mk 24 80 Squadron RAF

    454 MPH according to the Wikipedia article on the Griffon Spitfires, climb to 30000 feet in 8 mins. Oh, Michael louey got there first!
  5. Monogram typhoon

    I think you're right on the Monogram tailplanes and that the first mainstream 1/48 kit of the Typhoon to have the Tempest tailplanes was the sharkmouth boxing of the Hasegawa kit.
  6. Elon Musk For President Of The World!

    I'm not sure if Musk believes it himself, but he seems to have persuaded people that we can set up a sustainable community on Mars by putting a million people on it by 2040. I think we'd have to terraform the place in the process and I can't see that happening in a hurry.
  7. 1/72 Testors B-2 Stealth Bomber

    Well done indeed, l'm sure it fought you. I got mine as far as painting and the application of some decals. I recall sanding down a lot of steps with 320 grade wet and dry, when perhaps I should have deepened rebates. That was about 15 years ago. Maybe I might finish it now.
  8. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    I came within a few inches of that with the F-104 at the museum in Ottawa once.
  9. More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    Had to look that up I'm afraid. I suspect I'd find it rather harder to learn off by heart than Three ha'pence a Foot.
  10. More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    I live in Kenilworth - up to a point. It's the meeting point of Terenure, Rathgar and Harolds Cross in Dublin.
  11. Japanese Lear

    That's a splendid job, and the images would fit well with Hasegawa's packaging.
  12. Looking at the model here I'm reminded of a competition aerobatics aircraft
  13. RAF Ordnance of the 60s & 70s in 1/72

    That's right, the F.6 boxing with the 111sqn/Swiss options had 8 sets of 2 rockets.
  14. Airfix Sea Fury 1/48

    Interesting. It's as if a section of the raised ridge on the mould acted as a dam. My new Airfix Phantom had a short-shot which took a sliver out of the trailing edge of one of the tailplanes. I suppose all-in-all I'd prefer not to have to make good that kind of defect as it's a bit of a distraction, but it won't stop me from buying the Sea Fury. I've already planned how to fix it in my mind even though I haven't got the kit yet.
  15. HP Victor K2 1:72nd scale

    That's a fine result indeed. Good to see you persevering and succeeding with it, whereas I recently scrapped the one I bought in 1984, when I saw how Airfix handled the wingtips on their B.2 and figured that a K.2 was planned.
