  1. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    Tim, I think you should put your TSR2 Build up on BM. No-one is going to disrespect it and all the help and advice you may need is on hand. Anyway I like seeing TSR2 builds. Martian
  2. Most memorable film scenes..

    I think you have things a little muddled Seahawk: I usually do the oppressing! Martian
  3. I could Randy but those scum at Photobucket has deleted all the pictures. If there is anything specific you need to know re the TSR2, PM me as I still have all the research I did for the model. Martian
  4. Airfix QC issues strike again. Defective Sea Fury kits.

    I checked my two kits, the fins were fine but the bulkheads on both were short shot. Well, I say short shot but on closer inspection, the missing seat mounting bars look more like they have been ripped from the part. I am lucky in that I have the experience to replace the missing mounting and probably can make a better part than Airfix can mould, but there will many, beginners, juniors and casual buyers who do not have the necessary skills. What I find more worrying is Airfix's poor attitude to after sales service. In any process that involves human beings, sooner or later things will go wrong and Airfix would be better served and gain more respect by acknowledging this fact and coming up with a better response than more kits are being produced in May. Martian
  5. Catching Pictures in the Air

    This is looking so good that I think the interior needs the patent Martian digital photo frame idea. Martian
  6. This is looking highly impressive! Martian
  7. Westland Sea King HU5

    Its going to look fantastic with the decals on. Martian
  8. Marvellous plastic surgery on those airbrakes! Impressed of Mars
  9. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    She is looking ever more splendid Bill. So much so that I can feel that I am going to have to build another TSR2 in the near future. You are a temptress Sir! Martian
  10. You have GOT to be kidding me!

    Clearly he has never seen my bluglecruncheon! Martian
  11. You have GOT to be kidding me!

    I can pop back to my LMS on the Red Planet and still get it for less. And that includes fuel for the Haunebu! Martian
  12. Which Kit Should I choose?

    Forget about the competition, other than the date of course. Build whichever fires your imagination the most. I used to worry all the time about the competition and not enough about what I was actually building with a very poor success rate. The moment I started building something that inspired me and concentrated on that, my strike rate improved no end. Remember, after the competition has come and gone, it is you that have to look at your model. So, yes build and finish it to the best of your ability but do so primarily for yourself You will have a lot more fun that way. Martian
  13. An Airfix classic - Let the Battle begin....

    For all it's inaccuracies, I love this old kit and look forward to seeing what you make of it. Martian
  14. 1/72 Buccaneer S.2?

    Very effective interior. Martian
