    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    Joy of receiving Airfix Phantom slightly tempered by the realization that the instructions really did show at least 499 stencils to apply....

    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    Put in an order for CA glue. Must be strong stuff, because by the time I got to the checkout there were some kits attached to them
  3. Opened the box to have a look inside and a quick read of the instructions. Instructions talk about plastic parts, resin parts and...what's this.... metal parts ? Turns out there's some photo- etch in there for instrument panels, steering yokes etc. And some of the most detailed diagrams of pilot & co pilot panels I've personally seen in a kit. So, quick trip online to the Big H to stock up on CA glue ( and a few more kits accidentally jumped into the basket !)... hopefully arrives before the start of this GB since the first bits requiring assembly are - you guessed it - the aforementioned instrument panels. Decals provided for Op Jiu-Jitsu 1 and 2.
  4. Decided to take the easy route and choose something that is well-documented as being in-theatre. Some historical background here : https://spyflight.co.uk/operations/#Jiu_Jitsu 1:72 kit from Valom

    Any Canadians here?

    I suspect you are more likely to find them lurking here aboots

    Airfix Catalogue

    Or you could nip into Sainsbury's and browse it in the magazine section

    Unlikely, it's already been done... What I will grump about is not being able to find any Cadburys Old Jamaica, or boxes of Hazelnut Whirls in the supermarkets any more.....

    How about a "What makes you happy" thread?

    I'm happy that the family is safe and house intact after the builders re-fitting a bathroom managed to cut into the main gas pipe with a circular saw.....

    Airfix for 2019

    yyy? (just kidding) New tool Buccaneer looks interesting. Wonder if that means a new tool Op Granby S2B boxing will be waiting in the wings ? Lots in the list to be happy about, looks like 2019 could get expensive.

    The end of days?

    Depends - did you have raised panel lines on your nails ?
  11. Hmmm... sounds like it's not the right place if you're planning on filling up one account, then opening another with a different email address, and expecting everything to still be there in 10 years time. Unless of course hypothetically one was organised and kept 4 accounts going concurrently so that all of them have something posted from time to time, and none of them get anywhere near the individual 1000 item limit......

    ++ Something Blue - Finished ++

    Finished. Decals were pretty horrible - Tamiya tape would have been better for some ! Probably a reflection on the age of the kit.
