  1. He's loving it mate, keeps him busy and its just fuelling his desire to join the RAF when he's old enough. Yes, that would be a great idea if you could find the markings for the JU88 and build that one - I did consider it at some point but for whatever reason (like most of my plans haha) it just fizzled into nothing. Good to hear from you too, if you ever fancy a pint just give me a shout!
  2. Cracking work mate! Incidentally i remember the Javelin at Perdiswell, and my lad goes to 1017 Malvern. If you fancy some more interesting local stories, a JU88 crashed on Malvern Golf course in 1942 after being attacked by a Mosquito. And a Spitfire crashed near Jennetree Lane, but i don't much about that one to be honest. Just goes to show, look hard enough and WW2 had an impact pretty much everywhere.
  3. Thank you. And thank you for reminding me about the milestone... That crept up on me quickly, where the hell did the last 30 odd years go!!??? Now to decide what to build! I quite fancy doing a kit released in that year, but how would i go about finding this out? Is there a handy list anywhere of Airfix kits released by year for example?
  4. Now this sounds interesting, count me in please! November 1979 is where i'm at, now off to start finding a good project!
  5. Excellent! Seeing this has stirred some memories from way back when i was about 9 or 10, this was the first kit i ever built - Might have to track one down for old times sake. Nick
  6. Lovely job, is this the recent new tool kit? I'm a bit out of touch with whats what these days!
  7. Awesome. And yes, a Hurricane to the same standard would be very welcome!
  8. Hi, currently working my way through a very enjoyable Spitfire build and at the painting stage. I've printed off some very helpful masks to aid me with the camo, but i'm a bit stuck on how to temporarily 'stick' them to the model so i can paint. I know i could transfer them to Tamiya tape, but i don't have enough to hand right now. I've had a thought that i could possibly dampen them a little with water to 'stick' them on, but can anyone see a problem with this? Otherwise i could use Humbrol Maskol but i'm not sure i trust that going over Tamiya acrylic.... Any thoughts on my ramblings would be very much appreciated! Thanks, Nick
  9. That's looking fantastic Steve, Revell seem to have done a great job with this one, as are you. Looking forward to seeing more!
  10. Lovely job, did it go together well? I've got one lurking in the stash that i keep thinking about building.
  11. Nicely done! I really think Airfix got it right with the little Zero, its a great kit to put together. Seeing yours has convinced me i need to build more!
