  1. Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Hood

    Lovely job Sal82.Could you explain how you toned down/weathered the wooden Pontos deck material? Dave.
  2. HMRC scam

    Just checked my emails and noticed that I had something from HMRC stating that I was entitled to a tax rebate of £382.00.Another scam.Tried to report it to HMRC by sending to phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk but my email provider wouldn't send it.Please be aware of this scam. Dave.
  3. 1/350 HMS Dreadnought

    Great work on those pesky cage aerials Nick,very impressive. Dave.
  4. Bogus BT call

    Yes,just had a similar saying my TSB account will be closed. Yes,the cat is involved with the 'Freak Brothers',but he had his own comic book series too,(4 I think)published called 'Fat Freddys Cat'. Dave.
  5. Bogus BT call

    Oh yes,had another perpurting to be from Google today,wanting to take control of the wifes computer,we don't have any account with them.As an aside I had to ring our financial guy up today and I happened to mention this to him.He said under no circumstances do this,another client of his lost £5000 when he did similar to some low life scamster. Dave.
  6. Hi Crisp, wonderful build and some truly great detail going on here. Just thought I might mention a potential problem,one that I have encountered anyway.Part C07,the tail plane is slighty warped,in my issue of the kit,hopefully this is not the case in all models!Then,if you want to pose the elevators in the down position,this is nigh on impossible as the kit stands,it needs some minor modification.Parts E08/09 which are the tail plane supports need the triangular piece(actuator?) filing down to accommodate the drooped elevator.I also filed down the locating lugs that fix inside the rudder to a round section,and also filed off the locating tabs on the tail plane,this I found allowed elevator droop. Hope this may be some help to you and other modellers building this kit. Dave.

    Leicester WH Smith had a load in last Thursday which is where I bought my copy.Popped into local WH Smith in Hinckley on Friday and they had just had a delivery of approx. 5 copies,but these were all gone on Saturday.
  8. Very good read and build this month on the new Airfix 72nd scale Phantom FG1.And to top that off,a build story showing how to construct a catapult deck section to go with the new kit.Most enjoyable issue.
  9. whittle

    Apparently its made from GRP around a metal frame.It was refurbished last year.It sits on the roundabout between Lutterworth and Rugby,only a 5 minute walk from the Fox Inn at Lutterworth. Dave.
  10. Is this the true value of a 1/72 Hasegawa Jaguar??

    Just seen this,incredible,and have you seen their negative feedback,2,388 in the past 12 months! Dave.
  11. Ah yes,what memories,built this when it was available with the C-130 Hercules kit.There is/was a 1:32nd model available from David Parkins Flightline range for around £100 that was produced in resin. Dave.
  12. Hannants?

    No probs here,logged in OK,but had a bit of a weirdish delivery confusion/brain fart/whatever!Ordered stuff from the them last Thursday,had a text saying would be delivered Monday 14th August.Had text Monday morning stating would be at my address between 10.50/11.50,arrived at 10.56,brilliant.Then had text Tuesday morning stating 'Sorry couldn't deliver order'!,then email this morning again apologising for non-delivery.I love modern technology lol! Dave.
  13. Yes please,that looks really cool,as does the rest of the build.Excellent stuff. Dave.

    Very nice Chris,but can I ask,what was the offensive armament and how was it deployed? Dave.(A land lubber!)
