  1. I have one of those things.
  2. I used to visit him regularly, although unfortunately space was at a premium. AG Fry is now a hairdresser called Style Guru, not a kit in site!
  3. You could always get a taxi 😊.
  4. Like Steve I used to frequent MR & ME in both sets of premises until they closed in 2006 (Steve?). Goldings is a more than adequate replacement.
  5. Steve Hackett The Night Siren Haken Aquarius & Visions, all on vinyl.
  6. BMW Models, Haydons Road, SW19. Except I don't live in London any more.
  7. I bought one of those on Sunday and it also has a chunk missing from the lower starboard (I think) wingtip. I have the 26 BOAC sheet for it.
  8. Roden Super VC10 and Micro-Mir Argosy 200. Both 1/144.
  9. Excellent show once again, thanks to the members of Peterborough Club for organizing. Looking forward to next year 😁.
  10. I bought the Argosy kit at the Peterborough show today. Very highly detailed, given the scale.
  11. I bought the Argosy today. Lovely kit.
  12. There are also some ship kits, 1/600 and 1/500. The former look like Airfix Cossack and Daring reboxed.
  13. I took him! Being unable to gain access to any of the aircraft myself, Steve was armed with my camera and was able to take close on 100 excellent pictures for me whilst we were there, except in the Valiant, the reasons for which shall remain under the Official Secrets Act! It was a very long day, I was out of the house for close to 13 hours, roughly equivalent to the length of a Belfast sortie. It was well worth it and although I am going to need considerable recuperation time I sincerely hope that we don't have to wait another ten years for the next opportunity. Congratulations Cosford, a brilliant coup. We got there before ten but Steve was one of the of the last members of the public to gain access to the Valiant and it was after the official closing time when he emerged. Several of the staff told me that they had suggested holding the event over 2 or 3 days but management refused the idea. Maybe they will take heed next time 😁.
  14. I use acrylics exclusively now. As a hairy stick and airbrush user, I agree that Tamiya can be difficult to hand brush but I have found that thinning it a bit too much is actually advantageous, especially when using metallic colours.
  15. The Kitstarter Beagle Bassett has them! Such a shame that the scheme was a failure.
