  1. A-26B Invader Cockpit (4416 for ICM) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby ICM’s new range of A-26 Invader kits has hit a sweet-spot with a lot of modellers of 1:48 scale, and there has been a flurry of aftermarket arriving to cater for the super-detailers amongst us. This set from CMK provides a replacement cockpit, and arrives in one of their standard yellow card boxes, with the parts inside Ziploc bags and buffered by the folded instructions. Inside the main bag are twenty-four parts in grey resin, although one part (the spare instrument panel backing) isn’t used. There
  2. I've retrieved one for you from the bin, but if you find another one lurking around, just report it for deletion, as discussed
  3. Spitfire Mk.I Early ProfiPACK (83152) 1:48 Eduard The Spitfire was the champion of the Battle of Britain along with the Hurricane and a few other less well-known players, and it’s an aircraft with an amazing reputation that started from a bit of a damp squib in the shape of the Supermarine Type 224. The gull-winged oddity was the grandfather of the Spitfire, and despite losing out to the biplane Gloster Gladiator, designer R J Mitchell was spurred on to go back to the drawing board and create a more modern, technologically advanced and therefore risky design. Th
  4. It has been irritating, and my last attempt to fix it didn't work I've got to get it sorted, but today I'm totally goosed from making a couple of shelves yesterday My brain is about as wobbly as a bucket of wobbly jelly today
  5. Tramway “X” Series Mid Type (38026) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd Trams have long been used for mass transport within built-up areas of larger cities, using rails set into the street and making a familiar dinging noise just before they run you over. They’ve made a comeback in some cities recently, but were far more numerous pre-WWII, and a lot of folks used them to travel deep into cities where the standard railways couldn’t reach before other cheap forms of mass transport such as cars or taxis came along. Soviet Russia operated these trams in their citie
  6. Not true! Someone asked me by PM around the time of my original post, so I thought I might as well save the information for future reference for those of a curious nature, and an FAQ seemed like a good way to do that
  7. Vallejo has a pair of rubber shades in their Panzer Aces range. 306 Dark Rubber and 305 Light Rubber, so you can make any shade in between, because if you look at any tyre it sure as heck ain't black
  8. RS-132 Ammunition Boxes (35795) 1:35 ICM via Hannants The Katyusha rocket launcher was loaded with a load of RS-132 rockets, which had their origins in the early 30s from a project to create a type of smokeless rocket of a standard type and diameter. The 132 was approximately 85cm long with a diameter of just over 13cm, and fins that projected 30cm from the body. It could carry just under a kilo of explosive of one of two types. The RS was high explosive fragmentation with a destructive range of 10m, while the RBS was armour piercing, although with minimal accu
  9. OK, on that humorous note we'll bring this one to a close, as 1) it's totally unsubstantiated 2) it's turning into a bit of a wishlist, and 3) everything worth saying has been said, so unless we get some actual substantiated information at some point in the future, It'll remain closed.
  10. PM me your email address you used with PayPal, and I'll see if I can find you. It's not much of a thank you, but if you've helped out, you deserve it
  11. North American F-100D Supersabre Collection Part.1&2 1:72, 1:48 & 1:32 Euro Decals by Fantasy Printshop The F-100 began life as a development of the F-86 Sabre with a more sharply swept wing to achieve supersonic speeds, but it evolved into a completely different airframe before it was accepted into service, being much more than just a supersonic Sabre. It fought extensively in Vietnam, then later in Air National Guard (ANG) units as well as some overseas sales. The last airframe flew in US service at the end of the 70s, with the overseas aircraft carryi
