  1. Hawker Sea Fury FB11

    I picked up a Sea Fury yesterday , no evidence of any short-shots or defects apart from a couple of very minor sink marks on the U/C doors , so I'm very happy with mine. Andrew
  2. Spitfire Mk.IXc question...1/48

    The bulges over the wheel bays are I believe a post-war addition and would not appear on war time aircraft. Andrew
  3. Star Trek Discovery (Beware, possible spoilers!)

    Hi Trevor , That link refers to the DS9 Defiant , the ship referenced in Star Trek Discovery is the earlier USS Defiant { NCC-1764 } , the ship that disappears into an interdimensional rift in the original star trek episode " The Tholian Web ". Andrew
  4. Cruiser Tank A10.

    The colours are definitely wrong in the instructions , SCC15 didn't appear until April 1944, the colours shown are probably Light Bronze Green No 22 / Light green G5 and Middle Bronze Green No23 / Khaki Green G3 , these being the most common colours for tanks in 1940. Colours mixes can be found in Mike Starmers articles on the MAFVA website Andrew
  5. Your Plans for Modelling in 2018

    Finish something. Andrew
  6. Jonners' builds for 2017 - Not a bad year this year!

    great builds Jonners Andrew
  7. Qatar Buys 24 Typhoon

    Interesting developments in Qatar , over the last few years they have bought Rafale , F16 and now Typhoon , they have gone from about ten first line fighters, to about one hundred of three different types. Andrew
  8. RAF Sabre F.4

    No RAF sabres had natural metal undersides , they were High Speed Silver ie. painted aluminium

    I picked up the Thunder Models Tank transporter kit at Telford , looks very nice indeed , although I've only started the trailer yet. Andrew
  10. Falcon 1/48 Supermarine Swift

    Nice model , you got to love a Swift , now if only Airfix would give us one in 1/48.
  11. Stalks on the mudgaurds of scammell pioneer?

    Width indicators , set to width of widest part of vehicle, to let driver know if vehicle can fit through narrow streets. Mostly seem to have been fitted to later vehicles if photographic evidence is to be believed . Andrew
  12. New airfix 1/48 Mustang,

    Hopefully later releases will also come with a cuffless prop .
  13. Gunpowder . . .

    Watched this saturday , a bit gruesome in places , but then again the punishments are historically accurate , so can't see why anyone should object. Television should educate as well as entertain and I can't see any reason to gloss over these events just to protect the sensibilities of a few. Andrew
  14. Airfix 1:72 Tilly

    The Airfix "tilly" is a Standard or at least is claimed to be. Andrew
  15. Scimitar F1

    The EDSG is supposed to be BS381 640, was in the local Halfords looking at the paint for a close match when one of the staff approached and offered to help , when I explained what I was looking for he said " I can mix that for you , we can do BS standards if you have the code " , so next thing I know I'm the proud owner of a spray can of EDSG, it doesn't seem a bad match either. Thanks everyone for the very kind comments . Andrew
