  1. Looking good, I was thinking of doing a similar diorama but was going to build my own custom terminal building using several for inspiration. Those at Shoreham and the old terminals at Jersey and Gibraltar (only because I remember its roof terrace when travelling to Tangier in the mid 60s) and maybe Heathrow North side in the 50s, would have been specific inspiration. Like others I will be watching this one with interest.

    IWM London Visit - is it me? Or what is the point..

    Presumably it wasn't their "finest hour" then, arguably one of, if not the most, important events of WW2 (if not the 20th century) as not losing that battle enabled all the others (in western Europe and many others elsewhere) to happen, losing that one and D-Day would never have happened!

    AZ Model Bf109F AZ7587 Question

    Hi All Just a question really, one of the schemes on this one is for AX-? as used by 1 Sq SAAF in Libya in 1942 The kit has standard RAF colour roundels but should these not have an orange centre with the unit being a South African one? Thanks Anthony

    Albatross, Get Your Albatross Here!

    Well the Don does have some lovely lines, particularly around the nose, but it was a truly awful plane, possibly the only one de H ever made? Have to declare a soft spot for de H as I worked at Hatfield, albeit in the restaurant at weekends and in school holidays although my father did 40 years there, for de H/HSA/BAe.

    Hmmm possibly the dh93 Don? Looking forward to the build on this as I have two in the stash (intend building them as an Imperial Airways one and a RAF one)
