  1. As far as I am concerned, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, wotsapp, pinterest plus a few others are social media, this to me is a forum for modellers................knit pick away and see if I care
  2. So, a possible release date would be..................................................................? Some of use do not use social media, especially Facebook
  3. Airfix

    Looking at the various threads throughout Britmodeller Dave, I cannot imagine anyone who is a member of Britmodeller ever even considering complaining about a defective Airfix kit - perish the thought
  4. The speed that this company moves makes me think Airfix will be re-issueing their Buccaneer way before Tan models even brings their Buccaneers out(even though the tools are lost or BER beyond economic repair)............how long has this been since this was first mentioned?(They first asked for help from BritModeller on this forum in September 2014)................reminds me of the Classic Airframes Fairey Gannet AEW3........advertised well in advance and never appeared
  5. Tanmodel announce a 1/48th Buccaneer.

    Due to the speed that these models are progressing, I think theirs more chance of Airfix bringing out their Buccanear before this one even sees the light of day.......................reminds me very much of the Classic Airframes Fairey Gannet AEW3..............advertised, yet never appeared
  6. As you say dave, simple errors, but I think if your the designer of the set you would tend to go cross -eyed after a few hours, especially if this is not the only sheet your doing and your desk or room is full of reference material for upto 20-30 aircraft..........at the end of the day...............as they say on here"I am calling this finished" he may well have intended to rectify the faults you mentioned and it slipped his mind........i have seen builds on here that they have called finished only to have it pointed out to them a decal is on the wrong way around or a particular mark of aircraft didnt have a particular part as the model period is out of sinc. We have some nice builds going on on here at the moment, but some lapse of memory makes them forget an item they were going to add or remove........same with the decal sheets........end of a frustrating day and a lapse of memory.. Thats all you can put it down to. I remember Model decal when they were notified or found out about an error that they usually added a little correction sheet to the next batch of printed decals........thats the good ole days kicking in..............either way, airfix made a nice kit with their current JP and the Xtradecal sheet goes a long way to adding a few extra variations to our collections
  7. TVs best characters

    Heres a link to one of my hot favourites..........................has to be a link in case it raises temperatures and the mods take it down!!!!!! http://nightflight.com/wp-content/uploads/ELVIRA-SHOW-2.jpg An old-fashioned style horror movie marathon, hosted and commentated on by the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira.
  8. Think you will find, this decal sheet is still the only game in town Dave until/unless somebody else brings a new sheet of decals out.............still enough schemes on their to keep me happy Is their nothing in the modelling world that is perfect without somebody finding fault with it?
  9. Loose ballast.

    Be very careful with how you use Blu tack? Its oil based and tends to leech after a period of time. Check out these sites if you dont believe me asking for solutions to remove Blue tack oil stains https://www.google.co.uk/search?client=firefox-b&dcr=0&ei=MxuDWqT7CJC2gQbD6oOYCA&q=remove+blu+tack+oil+stains&oq=remove+blu+tack+oil&gs_l=psy-ab. White tack is also the exact same recipe..............both leave stains and leech Some colleges and student accomadation have also banned it from being used on their walls due to oily stains that it leaves behind
  10. Big white triangle

    Its nice to see the hard work going in on this build. We hear so much about the troubles and woes with building the Airfix Vulcan (especially the wings)but rarely get a chance to see just what those woes are. Here we have the evidence of one of the ways to rectify that fit. Thanks for those photos and the remedy that you applied. Keep up the good work. At the rate your going building all these kits in so short a time, I do believe Airfix are going to run out of kits for you to build - have you set your mind on the next build?
  11. Just to restart this topic, had notification from Hannants this morning that the REVISED decal sheet for the Hunting Jet Provost T.3/T.3a/T4/ T51/T52 are back in stock. Ordered it an hour ago and its already in the post on its way to me:- LINKY https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X72291
  12. 11:02:2018 I see that their are some Cutting Edge 1:48 foreign decals on Ebay at the moment for the Hawker Hunter
  13. Paint storage rack

    Plenty to be had here also......................as you say " For small 'sets' of paints / washes / filters etc " https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_sop=2&LH_BIN=1&LH_FS=1&_nkw=nail varnish display rack&rt=nc&LH_PrefLoc=1&_trksid=p2045573.m1684
