  1. I can't see any problems uploading to PB, as the test image below shows; however your post is about 2 hours old so they might have fixed the problem if there was one. Mike
  2. I have noticed that someone liked this today but some of the links were broken. Although this review dates back to 2010, I feel this is still a nice little conversion set to make a C-2A Greyhound from the Revell E-2C Hawkeye kit. I have repaired the links so hopefully all the images are now visible again. Mike
  3. There is a site purely dedicated to Japanese forces and their equipment and tactics. The site is J-Aircraft and is just the site for all your research needs about Japanese Army, Navy and Air forces. Check out the various menu items or ask a question. Some of the members are Japanese and have a thorough knowledge of the Imperial Japanese military machine. Mike
  4. This is a very important point that Laurie makes. The 'glue' is liquid resin and will remain in a liquid state until it is exposed to the UV light. which makes it harden almost instantly. It is no use as a glue for sticking something like layers of plastic etc., as the liquid needs to be exposed to the UV light. Any area within the layers that the UV light cannot penetrate will mean that part will remain liquid and not bond. I like the UV resin method, especially when filling small holes because, once it has set, it can be filed, sanded and painted to match its surrounding material. One area that I have found it really useful is for glueing/bonding canopies. The resin is clear therefore it also acts as a filler and blends any gaps between the fuselage and canopy. It can also be used as clear glazing for small window apertures. Mike
  5. Do we have a UK supplier for buying Gauzy nowadays? Mike
  6. They were on TV tonight, in the repeated series "The Good Old Days" from 1977 Mike
  7. It's not my scale but that Revell 1:72 PT-109 looks a real bargain at under £12 Mike
  8. Great photo's and thanks for sharing. It is interesting to note that the camouflage, which looks to be the same pattern, is actually different on each aircraft. This means that I would have to pick a particular airframe and get a full set of photo's for it if I wished to make a model of a camouflaged F-4. Thanks again. Mike
  9. Shapeways provide a free set of tutorials plus free software on how to produce a 3D design for them to print. Link is HERE Mike
  10. There are some decent views of the wheel alignment in the Walkaround Section here.
  11. Prague has about 10 model shops within a short radius of the centre, most accessible via the public tram system. The two main ones in the centre are MPM and Bilek. Mike
  12. My daughter (a nurse) has been badgering me to start doing some exercises following my heart op last month. Whilst watching an old edition of TOTP 1983, I came across this exercise and thought "I'd like to give this a try!" Turn up the volume! Mike
  13. If it is a 737-800 then that will be good news, I've been looking for one for a while. Any links on that release? Mike
  14. Happy memories of Culdrose, based over at 'B Site' with 848NAS in 1970. Thanks for posting the photos. Mike
