  1. Lovely work Tony, glad to see you building again. Hope your health has improved.
  2. Growing up between Leeds and Bradford meant some happy hunting grounds for the teenage Fox. The ones that spring t mind re the Merrion St Model Centre in Leeds, plus the shop that became Beatties when Beatties were great. Lots of Monogram, Frog, Revell, and Tamiya, things I couldn't get in my home town, though there was plenty of Airfix.. Carters in Bradford was where I got my first Frog boxed Hasegawa, an F-100D and a SAAB Viggen IIRC. Every other shop seemed to have kits in and there was of course the many branches of Woolworths. However my favourite was a shop in Horsforth, which combined wargaming, figures and plastic kits. Sadly I can't remember the names but the lady who ran it was lovely and her husband had flown Blenhiems against the Japanese.
  3. Another cracker y0ung sir.
  4. Brilliant work.
  5. concur with ringing them. I have always found them helpful when called directly.
  6. Thanks for the comments chaps
  7. That's a really well executed model, the assembly and finishing are top class. It is a difficult kit to get right, ask me how I know, and you have!
  8. I bought this kit on a whim at an RAF Waddington Air Show about 4 years ago and it has languished in my stash ever since. Discussions with my SIG members have led us to agree to display at Telford this year so our theme may well be New Zealand in 1/144th. My first entry is XH562 as zapped by the RNZAF when at Ohakea on a visit from its base in Cyprus. Nothing subtle about the the rather large Kiwi Roundels on the sides. The kit is by Great Wall Hobbies as is an absolute joy to work with, everything fits and I had to use absolutely no filler at all, which must be a first for me. The whole thing only took about a week with the longest part being masking the camouflage pattern on the top. I used asset of Fundekkals as all the necessary marking are included as are markings for another 20+ Vulcans. The instructions for the decals are downloaded from their site and are excellent, there is an awful lot more data than you would expect on a set of decal instructions and even surpass the old Modeldecal sheets. My only issue is that I think the nose wheel leg is too long giving the finished model as curious nose up attitude. I must remember to peel the window masking off !
  9. Far too much time on your hands. A lovely piece of work Ian.
  10. Far too much time on your hands, Ian. Lovely work once again
  11. Lovely work. The rigging looks really good. I read of your loss in the Dh91 Thread and add my condolences and hope all goes as well as possible in the circumstances.
  12. Another of my military vehicles in 1/48th. This is the Italeri Opel Blitz, which I believe to be a different kit to the Tamiya offering in the same scale. Tamiya have re-boxed some Italeri kits but I don't believe this to be the case. It is a nice kit a bit more fiddly than the Tamiya offerings but he main drawback is the rubber tyres. I've teamed it with a previous built Tamiya 20mm flak gun to represent a Luftwaffe AA unit in Russian in 1941
  13. I think they were by Ray Lamb?. Lovely to see them and they are really well presented.
  14. Too Much Time On Your Hands, young sir. Lovely work and very interesting review of the qualities of the decals.
  15. Lovely work and it is nice to actually see a completed Tante Ju
