  1. Mine have either been pick up (or deliver) only...... Models don't travel well but I'm sure with enough polysterene chippings there is a way!
  2. I have limited 'display' space and as I have little sentimentality for finished builds I have to move them on pretty quickly to free up a shelf. They used to get passed on to my lad (to destroy and then bin!) but he has grown out of that and I have sold a fair few on ebay - mainly to one guy who took loads off my hands in two or three transactions.. Recently I have given several boxes of builds to a Primary teacher friend who either sells them on for pennies at school fetes and bring and buys or gives them away to the kids - they love em!
  3. Why would anyone do such a thing!?!? Bonkers!
  4. Got three old Monogram and Esci 1/48th jets for a good price - happy bunny!
  5. Very odd decision indeed - how will that attract new subscribers exactly?
  6. I also got this in a charity shop complete with brand new radio gear for ....£8.00 Have to confess I sold it on an auction site for a lot more and that funded 'proper' modelling for some time..
  7. I have posted this before but it was my best ever haul from a Charity shop in one go.... and there were a few more in the same haul that didn't make the photo!
  8. Had loads of models from Charity shops in the past - most recent a 1/48 Revell Frogfoot last Saturday. Slightly off topic - but also a good place to look other than auction sites is Gumtree - I got this little haul just before Christmas for £6 a model- £72 the lot...
  9. 1/48 Revell Su -25 Frogfoot from a charity shop
  10. it's not what you are after but it may help..
  11. I remember some of he aircraft used in the film were at Sywell.
  12. I get a sort of muffled 'ding' - which is not unpleasant. For what its worth - I converted to a Mac just over a year ago after messing about with pc's for years. It's not perfect, they are expensive and it did take some time to get my head around it, but I don't think that I would ever go back.
  13. got it now! - but it sounds harmless . No idea how to describe it tho'...
  14. What notification sound is causing the issue? Mine seems fine...
  15. Just realised I have enough 'Flying hours' for the Phantom and the Sea Fury. Woohoo
  16. Had binders for Airfix Model World brought for me as a Christmas pressie - Does anyone know if there is a complete set of indexes/indices for the mags to date?? - have found one set online but it only goes up to about issue 50..
  17. How cool is that!
  18. Special Hobby 1/32 Tempest, purchased by me. Taken away, wrapped and put under the Christmas tree by my wife!!.....
  19. The bottom ones I believe are the Airfix 1/32 British infantry support group
  20. I keep a few in cupboards and on shelves but as I lose interest in completed models pretty much as soon as they are built, I have sold a few through Ebay but also have given a load away to teacher friends who distribute them around the children in their schools - the kids love 'em...
  22. Popped in literally for ten minutes - reason for the short stay was there's too much to do on Saturdays this close to Christmas... (apparently!) Didn't want to miss it tho' as had been to all the other Hamex shows. Still managed to pick up a 'want' for the stash..
  23. ..and what time is it due to finish?? - I can't get there til after lunchtimeish..
  24. Bit of a bargain picked off Gumtree today all at £6.00 each...... Airfix 1/48 Lightning F1 Lightning F2A TSR2 Jaguar GR3 HS Buccaneer S2B Grumman Prowler Canberra B2 Canberra B1 Eduard 1/48 Spitfire F Mk22/24 Airfix 1/72 Vulcan DH Beaver Revell 1/72 Shackleton (old Frog Moulds)
  25. Flying hours were made for this.......
