  1. Flying Legends 2017 (Updated 9th July)

    Fantastic photos btw. Where else could you see 3 mk1 spitfires , 5 hurricanes and a Blenhiem in the sky together?!

    I read that the Berlin express lost its canopy which then struck the tail.
  3. Zvezda Star Destroyer- Build #2

    lol thats fantastic!
  4. Well that was a cure for modellers block! This was a really fun build that took me back to my childhood when i used to build the tamiya bike kits and then my youth when i used to strip and rebuild my motorcycles. I have had so much fun i have bought some other bike kits. Kit was an easy build and considering its age still has so much detail in it and looks great. Right Ducati 916 next!
  5. For those looking , TJD Models in Kent have 2 in stock at £79.95. At least they did on Fathers day. www.tjdmodels.com
  6. Duxford Air Festival (More from Sunday added 02/06)

    I was really pleased with the display. The Norseman , Comet and mew gulls , Vixen and Rafale were the highlights for me. There wasnt many trade stands but MrModels is always a good stand. I bought a good kit from the Blenhiem society. I found the autogyro strangely fascinating.

    Fantastic replies. This has really widened my knowledge on the B-17

    That is interesting as Thundermug was douglas built.

    Wonder how long it would have taken to swap the wing. Im assuimg the undercarriage would have stayed with the wing. The engines were still the original one from Thundermug as they were olive drab.

    From what the paint guide says , the tail had been replaced too as it was a slightly different colour.

    Thanks guys. I'm sure read that it received a hit at the wing root. Could be wrong. I am surprised they swapped an entire wing.

    Im currently build the airfix 1/72 B-17 from the ground support set. The markings are for B-17 boeing b-17 42-38206 Thundermug. The guide says that the port wing was a bare metal one salvaged from another plane. The photos i can find show an OD wing. Anyone have anymore info on this plane please?
  14. Airbrush a must?

    Thanks Paul. I was thinking Vallejo actually. I know they airbrush beautifully
