    Many more kits than I will ever build....

  1. Is this the true value of a 1/72 Hasegawa Jaguar??

    That price does seem "slightly less than truly competitive" (that's how a government body would describe it, anyway)... I wish I could afford to buy kits at these sorts of prices. Chris.
  2. Loaded for Bear... or not?

    Just my personal preference, but I think ALL aircraft look better with the kitchen sink hanging off them. Others may disagree, of course.... Cheers. Chris.
  3. German Tiger crash

    A very sad event. I'm would take a guess that all German Tigers are currently grounded, pending a more comprehensive investigation. Chris.
  4. Very nice work - a real tribute to your build and paint skills. Thanks for sharing with us. Chris.
  5. A great set of images, my friend. The mission markings on one of the Hogs tells a story on its own. Looking at the shot of the damaged A-10 reminds me of a photo of a Hog that crashed in Iraq some years ago. The impact of the wheels-up landing had caused the barrels of the cannon to come loose and they were sticking out by one or two feet from the front of the aircraft. That landing must have rattled the pilot's dentures a little... Thanks for sharing with us. Chris.
  6. Buck Rogers - 1980s Stylee

    Just watched the "disco" scene...... "Would Sir like some cheese grated on to his cheese?" Holy Moley, they were very different times in them days. Chris.
  7. There goes the neighbourhood, it's another bally swagman!

    Welcome to BM, Richard. Have a great time here... It's a very friendly place to be. Cheers. Chris.
  8. Photos that say it all

    Skeletor won't be too happy if he does......
  9. My missus is awesome

    That's a very inspiring story. I wish you both the very best. Cheers. Chris.
  10. Photos that say it all

    "If it buys da naughty undies, vee can kill it....." Now that is a truly NICHE fetish, if ever I saw one. Cheers for sharing with us. Chris.
  11. 1/35 U.S Gun Truck Diorama

    A great diorama and a real tribute to your build and painting skills, my friend. Cheers for sharing with us. Chris.
  12. "Com'on, Let's Go!" diorama

    Excellent work and a great example of telling a story visually. Thanks for sharing with us. Chris.
  13. Dunkirk movie

    I've just been to see the new Dunkirk movie and - although it was very well-made and produced on an epic scale - there were a few aspects that need some comment. A. Tom Hardy's Spitfire - who had any idea that a Spit could glide for (what seemed like) 10 minutes? Also, just how much ammo did that Spit carry? I thought that early model Spits carried a maximum of 12 seconds ammunition, but I would estimate that our Tom was carrying between 40 and 50 seconds worth..... (Yep, I'm only too aware that only a military nerd like myself would be aware of this anomaly). B. Soldiers on the beach. I would say that there is never more than 1,000 people on the beach at any one time. Is this because Chris Nolan has an aversion for using computer-generated imagery to enhance his movies? Surely the beaches would have been much busier than this if they had 300,000 troops to move? Don't get me wrong, it was a good film of a very important subject and you should give it a go. Cheers. Chris.
  14. Superb work here! I've always loved how filthy the 1960's US navy fighters sued to get in the field..... Those were the days, now long gone (sadly). Cheers. Chris.
  15. Hello from the USA

    A very warm welcome to BM, Ed. Have a great time here. It's a friendly and informative place to be. Cheers. Chris.
