  1. Was in Hamleys Regent Street yesterday and they 30 - 40 on the shelf at £28, so there is still plenty around.
  2. You make be on to something with the herc - possible in 2021? My source has stated that it is in the design stage. Now is the question is are we both getting the same information from the same person or different people?
  3. or a comment from someone who had been to Airfix and seen the list............
  4. So at a recent club meeting, the rumour from along the North Kent coast was that the 2020 release list is confirmed........ ....Advice to all assembled modellers was to off load your 1/72 Vulcans.... Personally, I would not expect a new 1/72 Vulcan until 2021/ 2022, with a tie in with the 40th anniversary of the Black Buck Raids... I am hopping for a 1/72 Wessex, and in view of some recent art work, prospects are looking positive
  5. should have painted them red and issued them to the Red Arrows to replace the Hawks.
  6. So cutting up the starboard fuselage and wing also started painting the cockpit.
  7. Welcome aboard all. Sorry for the delay in updates - very busy at work, plus had some issues with leaking pipes, involving a stay in a hotel. Finally given up on Flickr, I can no longer access my account on a mobile device. So now trying Village Photos. started marking out were to cut... Now to start the cutting... More later (hopefully)
  8. So can only access Flickr on a desktop browser for now, so images might be slow in appearing . The base Airfix kit that I will be using: Sprue short of the Airfix plastic: I am sure that the Airfix C-47 will be a popular choice for this group build,so I leave the Airfix Shots at one. Now for the contents of Alley Cat set: A set of Instructions, colour profiles and a small decal sheet: If I am completely honest, the instructions appear to lack a bit of detail, so I will proceed with caution. Right now for the resin parts. seating with the components to change the airframe: The resin parts look nicely cast and the Minion and cannon already have the brass tubes cast in the to them: The props, including a jig for assembly - a nice touch. The final parts are the clean resin for the windows (the main cockpit glazing was broken during shipping, so will need be carefully repaired), a small etch set for the door airflow deflectors and the numbers aerials. Looking forward to getting started on this next weekend.
  9. I will be joining this GB either a AC-47T Fantasma of the Colombian Air Force. The Basler BT-67 is a remanufactured and modified Douglas DC-3; the modifications designed to significantly extend the DC-3's serviceable lifetime. Not just a case of adding new turbo prop engines, but the forward fuselage is extended to keep the centre of gravity correct. The wing tips are also modified, as are the ailerons, elevators and wing tips. From Jet Photos https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8073362 I will be using the Airfix Douglas Dakota boxing as the base kit and the Alley Cat Models Basler AC-47T Fantasma conversion set. Images to to follow shortly, once I can get into my Flickr account.
  10. Finally looks like I am making some progress. Whale interior completed... And on Junglie - cabin seating finished. hope to finish the cockpit seating tonight, almost there, some touch up of the paint require....
  11. You could also watch Chanel 5 @ 6pm tonight - Red Arrows Kings of the Skys. What about humbrol 196 for the undercarriage? Or is the too light?
  12. Making very slow progress. With christmas over with, have been working on the cabin.... Removing the ejection pin marks on the inside of the fuselage. Progress on the HAR3 cabin and cockpit. the cabin seats are now ready to go in, so these should goes in this evening. The HC4 cabin is painted, but need to add all the seat belts from the etch set before I add the seats.
  13. While trying to finish off the beaufighter, have made some progress tonight on adding the etch to HC4 and have started the HAR3, which will not have any etch added to the cabin. The airfix insturctions call for the cockpit to be grey, where as this is true for the cabin, but I think the cockpit floor should be black?
  14. Only just come across this will be following. Looking good so far.
