  1. Saunders Roe SR.53 reference thread

    I must admit I wondered that too. These are definitely the real thing.
  2. Still a way to go but they're looking a lot better. Chin straps, bayonets and buttons are still needing doing and no doubt I'll find something else.

    SR. 53 SR. 177
  4. Did keeping allied scouts drab give a real advantage?

    Don't forget the reconnaissance aircraft camouflage of PINK. Example (and yes I know its WW2) Not exactly drab is it.
  5. Further progress has been made. Swords in scabbards are painted. I think the next step will be chinstraps. Still a way to go.
  6. Thank you all for your comments

    Is this any good for you?
  9. Everyone has their way of modelling. I've seen fully painted sprues of figures which I still don't understand as when they're cut off they have to be trimmed and retouched. I remember those days of 9d for an airfix kit too. 2s for a Mosquito and 2/6d for a Lancaster
  10. At this scale it's much better to paint before assembly Jim. Cavalry are impaled, horses and Infantry I blue/white tack onto bottle tops for handling. Some will drill into infantry soles and insert a hot wire to stick into a cork. Zvezda are widely regarded as the top manufacturer of plastics however they've now stopped manufacturing so grab what you can while it's there, WIGIG. Strelets used to provide odd little figures ( to my eyes) but of late they are producing some very presentable Napoleonic boxes of marching or advancing. which is what Infantry do a lot of. The newest in production I think are must buys of Infantry "at ease". Worth a look Example
  11. Production has restarted on these. The ones that need water bottles now have them and nice shiny ones they are too. The uniform.
  12. What miniatures did you purchase lately?

    Two boxes of these added to the stash. Painting will recommence this evening to get the Pavlovs finished
  13. Waterloo Uniform references

    Incidentally Peter, Did I mention I have three boxes of these marked up for painting this winter. Nine Hussars and three Uhlans / box. They should make a good little group.
