  1. Gambling

    Definitely ban it, I've allways seen gambling as unwholesome as smoking and drinking excessivelly. I think there should be strong taxation and rules to defend the poor sods who get mixed up in this. Banning would only push it off shore via the internet I'm afraid.
  2. Tamiya Prince of Wales

    I've just had a look at the MK1 web site and they do a wooden deck for POW but no complete upgrade set, at least as far I can see, so that recommendation is no good, sorry.
  3. Tamiya Prince of Wales

    I've just finished a Tamiya KGV in 1/350 using the WEM set and I wasn't that impressed. Int he future I have Academies Warspite to do for which I have a set by MK1 Designs this looks head and shoulders better than the WEM set but of course I haven't buit it yet, it's also cheaper thant he Pontos one though I think not so complete/overkill I would certainly consider a set by MK1 designs.
  4. What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    Not as sweet as the Lanc.
  5. flightradar24 picking up RAF /military movements !

    Just seen Lanc over our place (Upton on Severn) good stuff.
  6. Another Denial of Service Attack

    Beggars belief why anyone would seek to do this to a 'fun' site.
  7. What paintbrush brand is recommended for a beginner?

    I remember doing this for public display at road scheme meetings, good days hours of filling road and verge up trying to leave no joins.

    Where did you here this?
  9. I think you have enough room for a set of ruts/track running parallel to the wing, especially as the carts would be either hand or, I supposed, water buffalo propelled and fairly compact. Dave
  10. Looking the biz now cambridge well done. How about a cart track for the left over triangle? You could try the static grass and have tracks as extra interest. Dave
  11. Hi, lovely diorama evolving here. I think that the earth banks would have a foot worn path along the top and be more vegetation covered. And may I also give a vote for the sisal string, I've used it, to my own lowish standard, for stream side weeds and it works ok and being a natural product it has nice variation built in for free. As the rice is hand planted it would be in 'rough' rows so a freehand approach would work well, I would be inclined to pre drill the hole (seconds with an archimedes drill) then pop whatever plants in, also the bottom of the paddy fields would, I think, be fairly flat and not massively textured due to them spending at least part of their life as semi self levelling mud.
  12. HMS Crocus - Revell 1/144

    Wow, just right beautiful model.

    That was definitely a bit of a surprise. Allways enjoyed the total war games. Interesting to pit Glaswegian wrestlers against some history buffs.

    Well the out put is top class in quality and quantity. I hope, as far as modelling is concerned, when I retire to be in the same position.

    Blimey, wonderful products. If you don't mind me asking is this a near full time occupation as your production must take hundreds maybe thousands of hours annually. Well done Dave
