  1. Bogus BT call

    When we moved house some 5 years ago we were given a recycled phone number. We were getting so many spam calls a day that I unplugged the phone. Never plugged it back in again
  2. How do I post Pictures?

    Awesome, almost a whole jasta!
  3. An amazing piece of work, especially with the lighting and mass of aircraft!
  4. What have you purchased 9

    Pet hedgehog ate a dog. The bloating and constipation was terrible.
  5. What have you purchased 9

    Many, many years ago I used to do a short commute to Sheffield on the train from Leeds. When it turned up that is. Eventually I got fed up with it being so unreliable so I used to drive into the city centre and use contract parking. Eventually I got a works car parking space so that was even better.
  6. Confused!?!?! Has someone had Scammells on sale?
  7. How do I post Pictures?

    That's a link to a web page, what you need is something that ends with .jpg or .png
  8. What have you purchased 9

    An assortment of Humbrol enamels to create my own washes, a 1/35 Stug IV kit and a 1/35 halftrack kit
  9. What are you reading?

    Heirs of the Blade; book 7 of the Shadows of the Apt series by Adrian Tchiakovsky. A great science fantasy series which for once contains a lot of originality and very little ripped off from JR Hartley JRR Tolkien, plus it has a touch of steampunk if you're into that kind of thing. I highly recommend this series for anyone into science fantasy.
  10. A GB sounds like a great idea, I would certainly join in with that one. I really like your Sea Vixen build
  11. Best Alternative To Acllad II

    I've used Vallejo Metal Color - aluminium - and was impressed enough to go order the steel. They airbrush straight from the bottle very easily. Flory did what I think is a representative review. One thing about the price is that while, yes, they are £6 a bottle, you are getting 32ml not the 10ml you get with Tamiya for instance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKtJ2sx3VJY
  12. Patton Tank Grp. Build We have our 25 but need more recruits

    That's a very interesting series of posts there Corsair, thanks I'm glad to see you got the new Tamiya M4A3E8 Korean Devil Sherman kit (box includes a GAZ Jeep kit too!), there's a reasonable OOTB* step by step build here + images of all the sprues for anyone fancying building it for the M3/M4 GB: * Watching it again, I've just seen that he does use a PE upgrade for the .50 CAL; I think it's the RB Models kit that he uses.
  13. Right then...an Academy SPAD XIII in 1/72

    Modelhobbies carry these for £3.16. Worth it just for use as a paint mule! https://www.modelhobbies.co.uk/shop/revell-spad-xiii-04192-p-18143.html

  15. a question about Zimmerit on tiger I tanks

    Short answer: put zimmerit wherever you would like it to be unless your representing a specific tank. Long answer: I'm convinced that not all Tigers had zimmerit on them: this is a picture of a Tiger, which I assume in on the Eastern front: it's definitely seen action(!) and there is no zimmerit visible on either the upper glacis or the front plate, even though zimmerit was chiefly to protect armour against Russian magnetic anti-tank mines (which didn't really exist anyway): This is a knocked out Tiger in North Africa(?), no zimmerit anywhere at all: I would have to (politely!) disagree with this; as a) a tank is rarely on a perfectly flat surface so there is never a truly horizontal surface, and b ), the upper glacis of a Tiger isn't actually horizontal!
