    Really like your weathering you have captured that extremely well there.

    After the comment I would still be impressed with your model, well done there chap. Like it.
  3. F7F Tigercat Italeri 1:48

    Very nice rendition there, lovely model. I would very proud of completing to such a high standard. I must put one of these for my future builds.

    Very nice sea fire there, lovely and well done.
  5. Thanks for the bad bits about the GWH Mig-29, Redcap. Mine is just about to go in to the spray shop, so i’ll Watch out for the decals.
  6. Airfix - 2018 Release schedule

    Thanks for spending the time doing the list. It’s great to see when everything is coming out. I wonder how it will pan out though?
  7. 1/32 RAF Puma

    Glad you have noted that XW223 was the large sponson aircraft, good spot.
  8. Su-27 Flanker - FINALLY DONE!

    You have captured the inservice state well with that constrained weathering. A very well done.

  10. Aircraft zapped.

    Oh this brings back memories indeed. I remember helping paint Fly 230 on the underside of a Puma in about 1979/80 on a 33Sqn cab that was in our hangar 230 Sqn overnight just before the families open day for that year. As it flew in a 33Sqn formation the next day it quite clearly displayed the zapping to all when banking around. Sadly Zapping has become a thing of the past mainly for two reasons, the system dislikes such things and the general change of attitude/lack of moral.

    Thank you for sharing your photographs with us. I know that I must add going to one of these shows in Japan to my lifetime bucket list. Simon
  12. Thank you for your reviews excellent kit it is very much appreciated by all. How long did you take to build this kit? Nice reproduction by the way. Simon
  13. Puma HC-1 1:32nd scale.

    Sorry HL-10, Angelo I should not have looked at this thread, your Model of XW223 is well know to belong to certain Flight within 33Sqn and has always been since about 1978 and fitted with different main undercarriage sponsons and some other small details. So she has never been on 230 Sqn. Trust me, I know, sorry. Further to this all of the qiuilting on the inside of the cabin is in a shitty grey colour, unless you are modelling from 70"s then it would be a dull dark blue colour. Cabin seat belts could be either red but now are blue. All fixed panels in cabin/cockpit are Matt Black.
  14. You can easily buy 25mil insulation board and cut down to size.would also be cheaper as well. Choice of manufacturer all about the same. Just compère prices first.

      Hi mate, thanks for the reply

      ...so 25mm? would that be sufficient insulation? also would leave about 20 mil gap, would you have that on the inside or outside of the board?

      Biuld your shed as normal and buy the 25mm insulation sheets normally comes in 8 x4 then cut to fit in between the beams. Although not as good as 50 mm better than nothing. Further to this check that 38 mm is not availbile. And always ware eye protection when cutting with a saw i know.

  15. Abingdon IPMS Show

    Will pick up on the toilets when i get off my canal boat. Glad you enjoyed the show.
