  1. Enjoyed most of his books, Rendezvous South Atlantic always brings tear to my eye. Calm waters sir.
  2. Its a smashing little kit, I've built two of them but am too scared to contemplate the AA paint scheme, so good luck. I did some representative rigging as well. I'll be watching this one with great interest
  3. In the Sheffield Hobbycraft it is the reverse of newish Airfix, Spitfie 1s, Hurricanes, Defiants in 1/48th and Whitleys, Jet Provosts etc in 1/72nd( I didn't really look at the 1/72nd stuff).
  4. Thanks to the guys who did the hard yards organising and running a great day. It is much appreciated.
  5. Nice work and good to see the Polar Bears represented in model form.
  6. Exactly my reasons as well IanC. Yes I think a lot of the Tamiya figures are undersized and two dimensional but the chap from the Dingo is one of their better efforts IMHO. Remembering also that there is no exact size for humans and diet/rationing etc means that people were smaller. If I stood next the chap I used to work with you would think I was 1/48th scale and he was 1/35th
  7. Still fabulous work. Most of my cars got thrown out when I was at school, my mum was quite ruthless when she cleaned!
  8. Fabulous work brings back lots of memories, I had this as a Christmas present too many years ago. One thing, surely its either a Morris Oxford or an Austin Cambridge not an Austin A40
  9. Take care mate. Plenty more model shows to go to once you are a bit more mobile.
  10. looks a very interesting project, I'll pull up a chair. If the Belcher conversion is as good a conversion as his armour ones I've used recently, it will be quality. Hope you are going make it to Huddesfield on Sunday
  11. Looks fabulous, glad I could be of service.
  12. My latest AFV is the lovely Tamiya 1/48th Humber. As always the fit is excellent but the marking choice is very limited. Mine is a machine of the 49th Reconnaissance Regiment in Northern Europe in 1045 and the markings were hand painted. I used some Red Zebra stowage and the commander is from the Tamiya Dingo. Thank you for looking
  13. Very cunning, I'll certainly give it a try, when I make mine. Ventura decals is assume?
  14. Lovely build and finish, and I like the way the folded wings show off the target tug stripes. Do you know how he blanked out the turret? I've been contemplating build a TT for a few years and have been stymied by turret plating.
  15. That is an unusual Meteor, nice find on the scheme and the model is up to your normal excellent standards. Must drag mine out of the loft and get it started.
