  1. Shortly returning back home to good old Blighty, (my 90 days are up and El Hefe says I must leave - before returning), and DO NOT TELL THE LOVELY YVONNE, going alone. The bliss of getting to the airhead a few hours ahead and not with 1 minute to spare. Finding a good spot to ogle the passing airframes and doing so, thus keeping out of the Stygian black hole of Dar-es-Salaam Calcutta that passes for a lounge. Boarding the flight unencumbered by multiple bags and sitting down to enjoy the inflight media, meal and snooze A quick walk through the arrival terminal. That first, second and third pints of real English Ale at the Victoria, Dunstable around about mid afternoon on Monday The cold. The (returning) snow. More beer. Fish and chips. Even more beer. ... Going to collect Yvonne from Heathrow 10 days later. Christian, shortly temporarily relieved from africa
  2. Just caught up. WOW!! For both the dexterity and attention to detail, but also the realisation of what it actually meant to be a ball gunner... Hope Mrs Fozzy is soon on the mend. Christian, exiled to africa, but granted a return home very shortly!
  3. Would that be schrage-musik? Looking good and IIRC the fit was as bad when it first came out 20+ years ago. Also a second vote for the top scheme - looks dead sexy!! Christian, exiled to africa
  4. Cheers Tony! Book now ordered and hopefully awaiting my arrival back into Blighty at Easter!
  5. Hi Tony, Was wondering what you were up to and very nice too! Guess they were up to same sneaky-beaky stuff that 100 Group were doing in Europe. Now just going to order that book. Christian, exiled to africa
  6. Well that depends. How much of a beginner are you and which AModels have you picked up? Some are 'easier' than others... They will be great for developing your modelling skill set. That might be some time/years down the road, but as long as they will be built then welcome to the start of your personal stash! Build the Hobbyboss kits first, and probably some other non-limited run models first and then have a crack. Christian, exiled to africa
  7. Many thanks Sven. An amazing bit of history. Now who does the decals? I am not a Phantom man per se, (I do humbly apologize ), but that looks very tempting. Christian, exiled to africa and lead astray again...
  8. No. 7 Light Buff ??? (A gloss colour...) Possibly No. 74 Linen + No. 26 Khaki ??? (Matt). Is wentzels still going? and Hobbybook Handeling at 23 Pipersgatan, (spelling...) Christian, exiled to africa och 10 ar vid Uppsala universitet
  9. IIRC French interiors were either chamois, a light buff brown, or blue fonce. Chamois = Colourcoats ACF 11 / Vallejo 70:917 Blue fonce = Colourcoats ACF 12 / Vallejo 71:091 Other paint manufacturers are available Having a look at the very few images available, which appear to be quite dark, I would go with Blue fonce.

  10. That looks great! Especially looking at the starting sheet of parts. So how do you use the sweet wrappers?? Christian, exiled to africa
  11. Cut off the end and replace with Albion tubing or heat stretched plastic tubing??? This looks like a lot of pain for Mike fun to follow, so I am in!and ordered! Christian, exiled to africa
  12. How the heck did I miss the first parts of this? Fozzy doing what he does best! So compo and green maggot laid in for the journey. As for that cryptic reference to yoghurt pots??? I think I understand... On-On, Christian, exiled to africa, (we have yoghurt pots!) and off to find the preceding parts.
