  1. This morning I ordered from Jadlam Racing the Italeri 1/9 Norton Commando , which I assume to be a reissue of a Protar kit . They were advertising it at £53.85 , but I came across a discount code (JX44E59J) which gave 10% off , meaning it cost me £48.46 with free postage . Not exactly cheap for what is a far from cutting edge kit , but MUCH better than the current retail of £69.99 .
  2. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Looked in the mirror this afternoon and found I was being followed by a mk 1 Fiesta convertible
  3. Latest ones are the 1/24 Revell Monogram 2010 Shelby GT500 & 1/25 AMT Cobra . Both were on offer at Creative Models , so I figured it would be rude not to . Incidentally , usual excellent service from Creative - ordered on Thursday , delivered Saturday morning & , because the value was over 30 quid it was post free as well .
  4. Hobbyboss replacement parts

    As far as I know , they still are . Give them a ring or drop them an e-mail - their customer service is second to none & I'm sure they'll help if they can .
  5. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Saw a Mitsuoka Viewt in Crewe yesterday . It's a Nissan Micra modified to look like a Mk 2 Jaguar that's shrunk in the wash .
  6. RAF F-4 - teaching an old modeller new tricks?

    I'm pretty sure I can help you there - I'm pretty sure I've got a spare set of Xtradecals for a camo 43 Sqn aircraft in the early markings with the red/white/blue roundels . PM me your address & I'll send you what I can find . Cheers John

    Hi Al Here's a few answers Both the RAF machines are in the late 3-tone grey scheme . Here's a link to the options in that kit : http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10341050/60/2 Yes , HLJ are reputable . The paint you're thinking of is Xtracolor .
