  1. Excellent news! Will be in the market for a couple of these.
  2. Krupp Raumer S

    That is truly stunning. Fantastic work.
  3. Trumpeter E-10, Aachen, Spring 1947

    Fantastic. Love these late war what-ifs.
  4. I'm a disgrace...

    My word. That's beyond shocking! I have exactly the opposite problem every time I go to model shops in the Far East. The only good thing to come of it (apart form a stash rapidly approaching biblical proportions) is that I'm highly skilled at packing as much into a suitcase as possible now!
  5. 1/72nd Nanchang Q-5 from Trumpeter

    Looking forward to this one! Saw a couple flying over north Shanghai a couple of years ago
  6. Oldest kit in the stash?

    Got a boxed Frog English Electric P1 that must date from the late 50s, not sure if it classifies as truly being in the stash or just being kept for posterity though.....
  7. The Hobby Box Uckfield closed

    Sussex Model centre has a small collection of kits plus paints and other sundries. Morris models used to specialise in railways but haven't been there for a number of years unfortunately. Couple of others I know of in West Sussex: Bognor Models, their website has a good selection of kits but not visited them yet. Gaugemaster/The Engine Shed at Ford station, excellent selection of railway models plus a few Airfix and Revell kits as well.
  8. Favorite Britmodeller topics

    Any of them providing they don't involve endless discussion on: Revell boxes Hasegawa prices Trumpeter/HobbyBoss accuracy The F-35
  9. Red Arrows

    You sure they're not already reserved by the MoD? They'll probably be replacing the hawks with these
  10. Airfix parts service.

    That's fine, but then you have to question why they are still offering a replacement service then. Surely stop it altogether as the current situation where there are occasional spares, some supplied FoC, some charged etc., seems a right mess.
  11. Elefant

    I can't comment on the Tamiya or Italeri kits, but I have the Dragon kits of both the Elefant (6465) and Ferdinand (6317), both look very detailed in the box, typical Dragon offerings. The Elefant comes with moulded on zimmerit but has the DS 'rubber band' type tracks.
  12. Non-Kits

    Would love a model of a Spartan Arrow as my grandfather learnt to fly in one.
  13. Going off topic a bit, but I don't think I've seen an F-8 in a US low-viz scheme before! Nice.
  14. What have you purchased 8

    Just picked up two 1/35th bargains here in Shanghai, Meng's King Tiger and their T-72B3. Cost about £35 for the pair!
  15. Exercise Open Gate 1978

    Superb stuff. Many thanks for sharing.
