  1. Staying with the Falklands theme, 1:72 Shar / A4 dogfight double, and maybe a Pucara or Super Etendard re-boxing.
  2. Opening the box was very reminiscent of the "Stonehenge" scene in Spinal Tap !!
  3. Today's grump is just how incredibly tiny a 1:144 Lear Jet is .... the picture on the box end is bigger !!
  4. Not a grump, just an observation having seen the Shows thread: Happy for all you lot going to Telford, but with > 30k new cases a day there isnt a cat's chance in hell I'll be there.
  5. altogether now...... WAAAAH ITS NOT 1:72
  6. Written by an HR dept that think that people "experience" work instead of doing work.... Maybe because somehow we're monstrous dinosaurs if we expect the younger generation to actual COMPLETE their work ??!!
  7. It's the landing light off a Farley Fruitbat
  8. A cardboard box would be positively roomy compared to some new-builds !
  9. Very true. But yet it is a murderous pandemic that we are all being instructed to pretend doesnt exist and shuffle back into crowded spaces via even more crowded public transport.... Anyway, nudging it back to modelling... any new "low cost virus spreader" 737 kits on the horizon ?
  10. That was war-time. This is peace-time.
  11. As a former modeller while at uni (many moons ago) I'd say that the biggest thing you need to consider is.... how are you going to take your built models home ? I got by with glue, hairy stick, paint tins, scissors, and a repurposed nail file.
  12. Todays grump I cannot mention without straying into the dreaded "P" , but suffice to say I do not believe The Greatest Generation made their sacrifices for some jumped-up chekists to demand "covid papers, please" before entering a British public place.
  13. Watched it today, darn good film of the Battle of Kamdesh.
  14. Yes, it's called putting 2 kids through university
  15. Feel I'm in the wrong line of work ? Only every single day ! But then again the line of "work" I think I would be most suited for given the chance, would be "idle multi-millionaire layabout"
  16. So, it could be, you know, like , you know, worse, you know, innit ?

    Bright white ?

    Thanks Ray, nice looking Brittania

    Bright white ?

    Anyone do a bright white paint for brush painting ? Both Humbrol 22 & 34 enamel are turning out ivory / almost magnolia, rather than being snow white.
  19. Do you think the Hannants backorders have finally turned up ? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-58078100
  20. but...but...but..... you NEED a trolley to carry the twelve 9-packs of toilet paper you went into the supermarket for
  21. No, don't say Dusty has been "Eliminated" ! This is sad news indeed. RIP
  22. There's an undercart and round wheel-like things. The bit causing consternation at the moment is the nose. Whoever designed that bit had clearly been watching a bit too much Space:1999, as there is more than a whiff of Eagle cockpit to it !
  23. Having worked on it this afternoon, all I can say is.... you get what you pay for. Detail. Fit. Finish. Accuracy. None of these words are in the vocabulary of the manufacturer of this kit ! Extra care has been taken to position the ejector pin marks in the most noticeable and awkward positions. Comes with a nice stand though !
  24. Right, for the less-than-a-tenner group build I'd like to submit the Revell An-225 - wait, just kidding At the back of the stash I found this little beasty lurking : Bought it many years ago from the Big H for substantially less than a tenner.
