    Travel to Brisbane, Australia

    Gentlemen, Thank you all for your replies! Some great suggestions there (especially the XXXX and steak! ) I have a Saturday and Sunday to myself for any sightseeing before heading into work on the Monday so I'm looking forward to the chance to have a mooch around. I have plenty of sunscreen at the ready but not so sure about the shorts - my pasty milk bottle legs might put a few people off! Thanks again. Paul.

    Travel to Brisbane, Australia

    Hello fellow Britmodellers, I have now had confirmation that I will be travelling to Brisbane for a business trip in September. This will be my first trip to Australia so I'd like to ask the usual questions about any advice that anyone can give regarding the Brisbane area? - obviously model shops or museums (especially aircraft or military related) worth visiting would be a bonus! I'm really looking forward to the trip (if not the journey there) and any information that will help in making my visit even more interesting would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Paul.

    What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    Throughout this morning we have had a Dakota, Chinook, Jet Provost and a Spitfire over head, all at relatively low level - all departures from yesterdays RAF Cosford Airshow and a pleasant change to the civilian light aircraft that we normally get from Halfpenny Green!

    Monogram 1/48 Bell AH-1S Cobra

    Hi Jon, All of your hard work has certainly paid off, that's a cracking build of a subject that you don't see very often. Out of interest, I've been looking at the Archer rivets for a build that I have planned but there are so many different options with rivet sizes and spacing that I couldn't decide which ones to buy - would you mind sharing which ones you used for this build as the finished look of them works just right for me. Thanks in advance. Regards, Paul.

    Not over my house but at the office, the Qatar Emiri Air Force C-17 "MAB" (the one painted in the Qatar Airways livery) was at RAF Brize Norton for a few hours yesterday afternoon - it made a nice change to see an aircraft that isn't dull grey.

    The Lancasterflew over us too, I know that she was due to do a fly past at the Black Country Living Museum for their 1940s weekend which would explain she she's over us so low, It's an awesome sight isn't it!

    That will be ZZ172 that was being used for pleasure flights as a part of 99 Sqn Families Day yesterday - it did 3 flights out of Brize taking the same flightpath. I was lucky enough to have been on the third wave which would probably have been over you at around 15.00 ish. Fantastic photo by the way!

    C-17 99 Sq RAF centenary tail art

    There's a rather interesting tail art adorning an RAF C-17 for the 99th anniversary of 99Sqn, look forward to hopefully seeing decals coming in the future.

    Kinetic 1/72 C-17A

    This photo, according to people that I know is apparently an Airbus marketing image with the A-400 positioned to make it look as big as the C-17. Personally I hope that Kinetic do a good job of this cause I can't wait to get my grubby hands on it!

    Meng Mk.A Whippet

    This is truly outstanding. I am just putting the finishing touches to one of these and is really is a gem of a kit. I can only dream of getting a paint finish like yours Andy but seeing your work is very inspiring.

    Swordfish Mk I - 1/48 Tamiya

    A really nice Stringbag there - a type that we probably don't see quite enough of considering that there are some quality kits out there in different scales.

    Mig-29 9-12 1/48

    A great model, there are so many brilliant builds of Russian types around at the moment and this is another one - it's really tempting me to get some (more) of my hard earned out!
