  1. 85 is a silk black. Adding silver to a black will give you a shade of gunmetal - that might be ok for the engine parts Use 33 matt black and gloss varnish or 21 gloss black with a matt varnish But for tyres and men's boots I use Tamiya Rubber Black Or Revell 09 Anthracite - but with that I've found some pots are almost black and some are more a dark grey
  2. Not necessarily so; the Stahlhelm came in 5 different sizes, the Brodie and Adrian came in 3 different sizes. Haversacks / bread bags, British and German WW2 came in at least six sizes. I have leather patterns for common WW2 pistols, eg Colt 1911A1, Webley, and P08, and for each I have at least 3 different sizes overall though the internal size is the same for each weapon. Going back a bit; the common 'Brown Bess' musket came in 5 different lengths and the 'Baker' rifle came in 4 different lengths. I've also seen Kar 98s of different lengths

  8. Here is somat to interest you and confound you. Spring Fever I study history, in the perspective of the ordinary person. I read books by historians but I also read original manuscripts and books from the 12th century up to the recent past On odd thing I've come across is writers describing people having 'Spring Fever' This 'Spring Fever' is often mentioned just we would mention someone had a head-cold. It happens, then passes. But this 'Spring Fever' is mentioned from the 12th century right up to the 1930s A person, usually in the writings the
  9. People are complaining that there is too much coverage by the BBC of Prince Philip's death https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56703437

But to be really sure I think I need to buy more Matchbox kits
