  1. Hi Badder. Lovely to hear from you. I hope you are keeping well in these strange times. I know what you mean about struggling to keep up with things. The past year hasn't been as bad for us as I know it has for some people, but my work started back up from early May - last year - despite being in the main lock-down period. As my role includes Health and Safety I was heavily involved with getting our place up and running - even before May - while I was working from home. I was travelling on trains when I was one of about 3 or 4 passengers onboard - and this was was on London bound mainline trai
  2. Great idea Ray!! And I have never seen that Livestock set before. I will have to look out for one! When I used to build exhibition model railways I always used to include some animals for the kids (and a lot of the adults!!) to spot. Animals always add another level of interest to a scene. In one of my exhibition layouts I had a bull chasing a man who was scrambling up over a fence. That always used to raise a smile when someone spotted it! Kind regards, Stix
  3. Wow!! That's really looking awesome! I am very impressed by the weathering on the sides of the lower hull. Fantastic use of texture and colour. This is already a beautiful looking Panzer III! Kind regards, Stix
  4. Hi Ozzy. Happy Sunday!! Well your afternoon of fettling yesterday has really paid dividends!! You have captured the atmosphere of the scene beautifully! I must have a go at adding a building/structure to one of my scenes at some point. I really like how the elements of your vignette work together. Kind regards, Stix
  5. Hi Nigel. You've done a great job with your Hornet. Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  6. Hi Nigel. Hope you are keeping well. Well I'm sure your son's friend must have been absolutely delighted with his birthday present!! That's a really beautiful Buccaneer! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  7. You have really done a beautiful job with your Pz.III. Very impressive. I'm looking forward to seeing it with all the finishing touches in place. Kind regards, Stix
  8. Hi Ned. I was a bit concerned that you find your gloss varnish tends to cause you problems. Can I just check - why are you applying the gloss varnish - especially if it causes you problems? Are you applying it all over? Is it for the decals? I must admit I only apply gloss varnish on aircraft builds as the decals for those tend to be larger - there's more of them compared to most tanks - and there's more chance, on the individual decals, of areas of the clear carrier film being difficult to remove. Regarding the latter - wherever I can, I use a scalpel blade to cut away all the clear areas of
  9. Hi Ray. Hope you manage to get the information you require. Kind regards, Stix
  10. Hi Dennis. Nice work with the thread/rope. I always think stowage looks 'right' when it properly held down by the rope. Lovely job. Kind regards, Stix
  11. Hi sardaukar. Great to see you have been able to do some work on your build and well done on getting the camo on! Kind regards, Stix
  12. Hi all, Great to hear from so many of you that you are ready.....or almost ready......for this GB when it gets underway! There's some good looking kits mentioned and I can't wait to see them being built. Out of the kits I mentioned earlier in this thread - these are the two I'm planning on building: I will build each in a thread of it's own. @Corsairfoxfouruncle - Hi Dennis. It does I'm afraid - unless the cost of the kit and the decals is still less than the equivalent of a tenner. If the decals are

  14. Hi @Rob S, @Scargsy and @Ozzy. Thank you for signing up to support this proposed STGB. I have added you all to the list in my first post in this thread. It's already in the bunfight at the end of the year - now we just need to get as many people voting for this GB when the voting starts in November! Kind regards, Stix
