  1. Hunter conversion kits

    Great thread! How about the Odds & Ordanance T7 conversion for the Revell 1/72 kit, that built up into a nice T-bird, but think its OOP now sadly. Cheers Simon
  2. Buccaneer S2B

    Thanks fellas, I knew I could rely on this forum to clear that up! Yes, 020 was done up in a retro scheme wasn't it. RAF Buck it is then Cheers Simon
  3. Buccaneer S2B

    Hi all, Quick question, i'm currently building a 1/72 Revell (Matchbox) Bucc S2B and its coming together better than expected to be honest. I planned on doing a FAA overall EDSG scheme as I have the right decals and love that scheme, but now dawned on me that the FAA Buccs didn't have the bulging bomb bay - or did they? The one at the FAA has the bulging bomb bay, so did the FAA use S2B's or was it just the RAF? Thanks in advance! Cheers Simon
  4. Hawker Hunter XF442

    Lovely job on the best looking jet fighter ever - and yes, I can confirm the chapter about this in Hunter Boys is well worth a read! Cheers Simon
  5. Thats excellent! Great work on the props!! Ive got an old 1/100 East German Plasicart kit of a Bear and have plans to do a similar thing with a Tamiya 1/100 Lightning at some point - although moving props is way beyond my skillset!! Thanks for sharing. Cheers Simon
  6. Happy days :-) I must have been at that gig then as I remember the Phsyco surgeons supporting - thats the only time i've seen NMA in thier home town!
  7. Great stuff! I was a bit later, first gig was Exeter in '85 most recent Norwich last year. I saw them in Bradford Uni in 88 - what band did you drum for? Apologies to everybody else for going off topic
  8. Cheers for the kind words Simon & gamevendor. And you're right, horrendous slaughter - I guess one tiny bit of good came out of it in that at least the British Army tried to learn from it in WW2 and not make the same mistakes again. Cheers Simon
  9. Same to you John, we're not the only two either :-) I love that song and the sentiment behind it! I only came back to the hobby when I started building kits with my boys, got hooked again!! Ive always had bit of an inner conflict on being 100% behind the values of NMA and an interest in military stuff, but I was born into an RAF family so its always been there. I have massive respect for people who have served the country, it just the people making the decisions that sometimes need questioning but better not get into politics here lol!! Do you still go to gigs? Cheers Simon
  10. Thanks for the kind words - never gave the height of the trench a thought until you mentioned it so a good shout to stock up on sandbags! Cheers Simon
  11. Thanks and respects to your Gt uncle Mike. I think Masterbox (or is it ICM) have done a great job with the figures on this set. Cheers Simon
  12. I think its fair to say some of the early gigs were a bit lively I hit my peak in the late 80's early 90's doing the sleeping rough bit, but still managed to get to 3 gigs on the last tour!! Been to York quite a few times but never been that lucky!!
  13. Brilliant - my first gig was Exeter on the No Rest tour in 85 - I took my eldest son to see Justin on the solo tour in November and he was blown away! Our paths may have crossed at some point! Cheers Si
  14. Cheers goggsy, and well spotted, you must also be a fan to spot that?
  15. Cheers Badder, its good old Norfolk garden mud mixed with PVA - bit grainy but I'll work on this for my next project!! Thanks for the comments, I've only recently got into dioramas again, just got a bit bored of building aircraft and fancied a change! Simon
