  1. Valiant Air Command

    Great museum - some really interesting exhibits there.
  2. Airfix 2018

    Would they have had to go all the way to Seattle to scan it tho? There are other ones closer to home.. And there's not a lot of room around it for the technical scannng equipment - if it has been scanned that is - guess we'll find out in good time.
  3. Airfix 2018

    If it has to be bigger than a HE111 there's not a lot in the MofF that, IMHO think, would fit Airfix's wishes - other than Airliners, B52, B47.... could be a Concorde - but not sure how well the original 1/72 scale one (with all its faults) sold.
  4. Airfix 2018

    From Seattle MofF - must be the P38 ...but it was dangling from the ceiling in the summer....or a P or B47! OR.... how about a 1/72 Boeing P8 Posiedon - they build them there....... RAF's newest...

    Wandered into a shop selling diecasts this morning and spottted a Tamiya 1/32 F-16C Thunderbirds boxing..... I think I must be going mad 'cos I actually thought about it for five minutes before paying the £40 the shopkeeper was asking for it..... Also picked up LS Bede microjet BD5 and BDJ

    1/144 Revell Ryanair 737 (how difficult is it to make a P8 Poseidon out of one of these....?) and an Antonov 124 Ruslan. Also a couple of wooden sailing ship kits - I know not why....except they were only a couple of quid each . All from a car boot.

    Hi All Looking for some hints and tips re-model shops and places to visit when we drive down from Seattle to San Fran in the summer for our hols. Have identified a trip to the Boeing factory and also a couple of other aviation museums in Seattle and also the Spruce Goose on the way down but any other recomendations would be appreciated . Have to pick the best of the museums as havng the family with me I won't be able to go to them all!! Steve
