  1. At least my pre-order hasn't been cancelled so it should still be happening. Which is good as I've collected a few items in anticipation.
  2. I'm in! Dan Dare and vacform tips too! at the ready.
  3. Sorry for being so late for the T-34 GB, but 3 days ago I just have received a large parcel of Ukrainian UM 1/72 AFV kits including (among others) also the T-34 and SU-100.

    Could I join the pack still?

      I'm glad that you waited to message me. I've just got my computer up-and-running again.

      Yes please start a topic and wade in when you're ready. I've got to catch up after two weeks in the wilderness.


      Have Fun Comrade



  4. SBS have done a lovely resin engine and cowl set as noted above and now they have propellers to go with them https://www.sbsmodel.com/model/SBS-48064/bristol-blenheim-propeller-set-for-airfix-kit showing in stock as I type. Obviously could be applied to other 1/48 Blenheim kits if needed. For the Mk. IV Hannants have discounted their repop of the CA Mk IV https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CF4159?result-token=bwpWD and are showing a 1/48 conversion for the Airfix kit into a Mk.IV from Blackbird Models as a Future Release. Now I know there is 'history' between the two BMs but I kno
  5. Attracted by the magic word Ferrari I find gold! Been struggling with this colour for a very long time (I don't see red well). Not any more! The newer colour is just different enough so I can spot it a mile away, I have had several show conversations with people who insist the colour never changed.
  6. What a fabulous build Sir! Well worth the 10 year build. I'm relieved that another also realises the Beauty and Brains of Michelle, following the RAC Rally around at the time in the company of Lancia fans was worthwhile every time one of them shot past. Having missed all the earlier conversions I had high hopes for the new kit I hope somebody does a new Transkit for the Pike's Peak car. Those tyres look superb for 10 year old 3D Printed items, somebody was at the cutting edge!
  7. The 1/48 Tamiya kit allows you to relive that experience all over again. At least it means lots of shavings to make plastic gloop with. Very handy for making copies of fuel caps and such.
  8. Thankfully we do I have just received an e-mail advising that my Corsair etch and a few other bits are on their way. I've put the Mayor and brass band on standby to welcome this important arrival.
  9. You've both touched on the reason I think BM is the best model-making site around. Then we have Group Builds run by people willing to inspire others, honest feedback on kits that aren't quite as good as some others claim. OK so some GBs are run by idiots like this one but my heart is in the right place. I'm glad it got sorted for you Andy and it seems that the hull really fought you. I find incantations to be either excellent or rubbish. More than once I've needed several spells just to get back to my starting point. Never got to welding gear as my hammers live in front of the gea
  10. And, as if by magic, a shop an assault gun appeared. Nice paint work and a very clean build too.
  11. I second that emotion doing the fighting compartment on mine for practice and regretting that decision......
  12. The roof marking should be a white triangle base to rear with a solid red circle in it nearly touching the triangle sides. A lot of images get flipped by editors for Heaven alone knows what reason. We're fortunate as the driver's hatch is a give away from the front. Nobody can spot everything @Troy Smith not even you
  13. Glad you went with the green it's come out very well indeed. The bare metal tanks in Leningrad (or Stalingrad) are a persistent myth. Leningrad were very active in rebuilding tanks and adding armour and paint was available for the limited amount needed. The paint may have been patchy if applied by an inexperienced Comrade but I've found nothing that screams unpainted to me. You have done very well with the effect to break up the monotone. It looks pretty good to me.
  14. Wot he said. Nothing matters more than your health. Good to see a proper Frankentank making an appearance. My entry is a mere wannabe.
  15. We Thank You for this breakthrough in kit knowledge. I apologise if my remarks have caused distress to any kits or their owners Keep going srkirad a messy job but it has to be done.
