  1. Metric all the way... apart from miles and pints !
  2. Varies by subject - Harrier GR9 over GR3, but F/A-18 C over F/A-18E.
  3. On the aircraft front, a small number of 1:100 kits. An interesting scale... a 1:100 Tomcat is large enough to be detailed, while taking up considerably less shelf space than a 1:72. Whereas a 1:144 Tomcat is a tiddly PITA to assemble. Of course we now have the debate about when did the 'Tomcat' become a unit of measurement.....
  4. Without going into banned territory, I'd like to put forward that the chances of the public following any future public health advice are effectively zero after the Partygate and Wine Time Friday debacles. Back to modelling.....
  5. Judging by the pair of Apache gunships circling over South Rugby, the last thing I posted on BBC Have Your Say.........

    Great result. Makes the men's team look like a bunch of over-paid and undertalented primadonnas !

  8. Setting a very low (and dusty) bar. Built in the days when I didn't varnish models - tried to blow the dust off and a good portion of decal on the wing disintegrated !
  9. That cockpit is a work of art, especially in 1:72.
  10. Apparently this and the Vigilante were designed at the same time, and there was fair bit of information exchange between the 2 teams at North American Aviation....
  11. The eagle-eyed can see the horrible beige colour around the lid of the tin... And here's the model as it is today, resplendent in box-white
  12. Opened a tin of Humbrol 130 and slathered it on.... what's this ? Why is my model a disgusting dark browny beige colour ? A quick trip to Hobbycraft and a few tins of something I've never heard of before - "Revell Email Color" SM304 - and it's properly NASA white again. Now where did I put my sunglasses ?
  13. well, its standing on its legs and its not (yet) a tail-sitter.... score that one as a small win. Onto the next battle... boy does this thing not like Humbrol enamel ! First coat of white paint has left what can only be described as a "stretch mark" paint job ! Hoping coats 2-4 will cover up my ineptitude with a hairy stick....
  14. ... and the many American vessels (Navy, NASA and Starfleet !) called 'Enterprise' ..... ?
