  3. 1/350 British Nuclear submarines

    I'm fairly certain Mr. Putin has some friends with accurate plans!
  4. Info needed please, on MIDGES in Scotland.

    Chemist in Helensburgh used to have an effective lotion. Don't know if it's still available. Dave
  5. Always thought a great Whif would be two of these underslung from the wings of a B-52 as "parasite" fighters.
  6. Short SC.5/10 Belfast

    Hi Mike, I had some Gannets, Buccaneers and Sea Vixens from Shapeways in 1/400 scale. The Gannets with folded wings were pretty good! Most designers will re-size for you. https://www.shapeways.com/product/CH6BXAPZ5/buccaneer-faa-w-gear-x4-fud Dave
  7. Mine arrived last week, packaging a little damaged, but kit fine. Interesting to see all of the choices - decisions decisions!
  8. Just had a message to say mine has been dispatched. Hoping it arrives before the New Year!
  9. Hi, has anyone tried fitting the No. 2 Engine "S" intake? It appears to be very much oversize. Unfortunately, I found this out after I'd removed the front lip! It would appear that the external diameter of the kit "S" tube has been made the bore of the replacement moulding. This means thinning the kit sides to 0.25mm to get anything approaching a fit The engines, by the way are very nice! Dave
  10. £34 on Ebay - Welsh models comes out at £41! And the Pan-Am version only £28. Buy both, a little scratch building, and you can model both liveries! Simples
  11. Sorry, read your original post, and the answer is there Doh!!!
  12. Plenty on Google, and in full colour. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=HMS+Endurance+1967&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjy9fXX_MXXAhUELsAKHdwfCzIQ_AUICigB&biw=1280&bih=893
  13. What about Profile Morskie plans? They do both ships. I see both are available as 1/350 downloads at7.90 Euros. https://blueprintsofwarships.com.pl/350.htm#bb You could also look at their books, HMS Repulse is available in 1/700 Profile Morskie Volume 6, and HMS Renown in 1/350 Profile Morskie 34. Hope this is of some help. I found their book on HMS Exeter to be very helpful.
  14. RAF Hercules

    What are the options in 1/144 scale?
