I've got to ask this as Darby has changed his avatar back to Terry-Thomas. When reading Darby's posts does anyone else hear Terry-Thomas in their head? I hear Gert Frobe when his pic is his avatar!

Am I nuts or does everyone do this?

on topic; delivered today a new-to-me very vintage heavy duty Singer sewing machine

Haven't even had a chance to open the package to get the serial number so I find out just about when it was made

Now that you bought new ones, your sure to find the old ones.

I had a moment of unashamed extravagance which will probably be followed by a vague but prolonged feeling of guilt:

... and this; not a purchase as such but a present from my friends Jamie and Gill at Sovereign Hobbies:

So for the first time in many years there will be an armour build in my future...

 

Cheers,

Not so much purchased but given to me by my mate (and boss) Andy.

Now I may be able to replace those rivets missing along the spline of that Rhino I am building/destroying.

Please could you report back on their accuracy and ease of use?

 

I got my Blackbird Models ones out of the stash the other day. They weren't banana-shaped but it isn't too easy to work out where to cut the nack of the upper nacelle.

 

Haven't done any cutting or cleaning up yet - not in a Mosquito phase at the moment as I'm doing a tour on Tempests - but comparing the resin nacelles to yer actual Tamiya, there's a clear length difference so they look to be bang on the money.  

 

Ease of use - the cut line on the nacelle is the firewall and comprehensive distructions are provided.  Not saying they're foolproof, but I doubt any modeller with a few conversions under his belt should have any difficulty.

Very useful, thanks. Just need to find some cheap Tamiya kits now.

Bought a cheap pricing gun from that Brazilian website. Promptly broke it when replacing the roll of labels after 1 hour's use. Ho hum, cheap is as cheap does, that'll teach me (I doubt it).
