  1. Telford Shopping List

    Didn't have anything in mind for Telford , until I saw that the Thunder models Scammell tank transporter is imminent, so will probably now be on the list. Andrew
  2. A few NAVY birds

    Thought you meant Royal Navy , but never mind , they look great all the same , a credit to your skills. Andrew
  3. Airfix Buccaneer S.Mk.2, 1/48

    Very nice build indeed , well done.
  4. IPMS Avon Show - Sunday 13 August 2017, Thornbury

    I will second that , a first class show and a great day out , looking forwards to next years show , always a highlight of the show calender. Many thanks and congratulations to the organisers
  5. IPMS Avon Show - Sunday 13 August 2017, Thornbury

    Last year Tesco seemed not to open until 10.00 am , perhaps Sunday trading rules apply.
  6. Spot of the day!

    Yesterday , on the road from Hereford to Brecon , a red 1950's Chevrolet estate towing a modern caravan , not something you see every day . Andrew
  7. Oldest kit in the stash?

    Oldest kit in my " strategic reserve " is probably the 1/48 Tamiya Lancaster, that I bought at an IPMS Nationals at Donnington Park about 25 years ago at least, cost about £23. Along with the Paragon Lincoln conversion it will be built one day. Andrew
  8. Scamell pioneer breakdown tractor

    There's something not quite right with the cab of this model , not figured it out completely yet , but the main fault is the windscreen . It should be rectangular , but the kits screen tapers at the sides , which is definitely not correct. Andrew
  9. Any models shops in Wales...?

    Nothing in Brecon , except Clarks , a very nice toyshop which occasionally has a few models. There is the Abergavenny Model shop, not very big ,but carries a nice range of modelling products .
  10. Spot of the day!

    A nice looking Jaguar XJS in blue , reg. N2 XJS , in Hereford
  11. Modelling RAF aircraft, c.1943

    I remember seeing a similar collection some years ago , also made by a serving RAF airman , they were carved from solid wood with canopies carved from solid pieces of perspex from real aircraft canopies. Paints came from RAF stocks and could therefore be considered authentic. I often wonder where these models are today. Andrew
  12. Games Workshop Purity Seal aerosol varnish - problems

    Yes Jon , I've had the same with the last tin I bought , never had the problem before.
  13. What is in a name?

    Neither , the Hunter was either powered by a Sapphire or an Avon.
  14. What thickness plasticard?

    you need card that's fairly substantial for bulkheads , so I would use at least 30 or 40 thou at the minimum.
  15. Spot of the day!

    A very nice W registered yellow Triumph 1500 in Brecon today , you don't see many of those these days.
