  1. bijou bumpette
  2. Looks like I'm going to have a stop over for a couple of day there fairly soon, so is there a good shop or museum I can just 'happen across' as the family will be in close attendance? Thank in advance. Andy
  3. Looks like the turret fairings are fixed I can't see any parts for the lowered position..
  4. Lovely work, and a cracking finish. I built one last year and had problems with the fit of most of the camera windows, I wondered if this was corrected on the second boxing,?
  5. If true it doesn't seem sensible to cut down outlets that cater for the casual modeller. I have used Fenwicks a fair bit when working in in Newcastle and Winsor so that two less places to buy kits.
  6. Lovely work and I especially like the filth on the belly tank
  7. Watching this with great interest as I won a Heritage Bulldog in the Raffle at the Southwell show last year and have been tempted to start it.
  8. That's another beauty, remind me again who has too much time on their hands? I agree that the old Monogram kiis are great fun to build and are very good replicas, most of which have not been surpassed to this day.
  9. Have they been spotted in the UK yet?
  10. This is my latest attempt, it is the Tamiya IIIN converted via the Belcher Bits conversion set to an early model. The set was a joy to work with all errors are mine. Just waiting to buy a commander figure, probably at Huddesfield in February. Thanks for looking.
  11. Already signed though only minutes before you posted and I too have met him and said thank you. Cherish them while we can
  12. Still no Hunter, nevermind, just the Stuka and Walrus for me, oh and a Camper Van and maybe another Defiant and a Sea Huricane. So nothing really. Oh wait that's half the defence budget spent already, blooming good job they didn't announce a Hunter.
  13. Blimey, I heard it had gone to Waitomo but didn't know that had happened. Maybe a stop on the next trip? Happy days.
  14. Beautiful Kahu. I like the war load and the pilot looks so natural.
  15. The 1/48th scale Alleycat Vampire is fabulous, if a little pricey.
  16. Looks fab and right up my street for both a civilian and military but the postage is a killer. I once had coffee and cakes in one converted to a cafe at or near Waihi Beach in 1997(?).
  17. Not just me then, I had the same issue. IIRC the colour was mixed locally and called Benson and Hedges Gold as it was supposed to match the cigarette package.
  18. The Scooter looks fabulous, I used Tamiya Gold on mine for the same reason.
  19. Ooooh two Safe Air options, excellent news
  20. Great to see an RNZAF machine.
  21. Great selection and standard. My favourite is the Pink Panther.
  22. Glad to get something right for once . Doesn't happen often. I visit Boyes in Scarborough and Brid a lot don't often go into P and S, the scary woman puts me off. Merry Christmas Adey
  23. I didn't expect to get this one finished this year, it is an old Monogram boxing of the F-80C which I picked up at the kit swap at this years' Telford for the princely sum of a fiver. It is pretty much straight from the box with just a aftermarket seat and Aeromaster decals for 49-806 0f the 36th FBS/8FBG in Korea. Thanks for looking
  24. Gunner from the Hannover or Roland?
  25. It is Ok , much more accurate that the Hobbyboss kit though probably not as easy a build. The port gun bay door is meant to be posed in the open position so it doesn't fit too well if you close it up and the spilt front and rear fuselage needs some tender loving care. I do rate these old Monogram kits highly in many cases they haven't been surpassed for shape. I'm doing am F9F-5P Panther next..
