  1. "Shipping". I guess the clue is in the name.... I guess the only option left if there's no sea containers left is to persuade some TV company to make a series about Ewan McGregor motorcycling to Japan and returning with a really large package from HLJ.....
  2. Didnt say it was a GOOD option, but if the alternative for the kit manufacturers in the east is a 6 month wait until they can get a sea container.... well thats a long time with no cashflow. Lets hope their domestic markets make up the bulk of their sales ! ps just noticed that HLJ do offer a surface shipment option...but it may take up to 4 months before something can be regarded as missing.
  3. That was an eye-opening read. The main question it raises is this : if containers are so expensive/ unavailable, is sticking it on the back of a lorry and driving overland from China an option ?

    Covid Jab

    Jabbed this morning with Pfizer. Various aches up and down arm, mild finger swelling. Waiting for the 5G phone mast to sprout out of my arm like a newborn Alien
  11. Thanks for the pointers. Yes, all those struts and braces could prove interesting !

    Happy for all you that have been offered one. Although supposedly qualifying for group 6, have still heard nada.....
  14. So what you're saying is.... Telford's full of ticks ?
  15. Something linked to Africa, eh ? How about this then ? Can't get any more North Africa campaign than the 'Desert Fox' himself, although purists might argue that I should be building a tank ! Complete with obligatory 'not started yet' pic :
  16. Following on from all these fine builds, it's the Airfix 1:72 Angel Interceptor from Captain Scarlet, inexpertly put together by a hairy ape with 2 left hands
  17. Ok I admit it, I was mistaken. We have been waiting impatiently for TWO (not one) years for A05170V ever since it was announced in the Vintage Classics range !!
  18. I think there must be a bug - its still showing the prototype Concorde as pre-order a year after it was announced

    VR Flying

    .... the sad news is once you've gone VR, there is no going back. Just an insatiable appetite for better and better headsets and an unfulfilled desire to flick those switches and press those buttons with your finger !
  20. haha its better than the previous attempt with the flash on ! Just trying to keep it in Harmony with its surroundings

    Just sleepless nights at the thought that one day I may have to set foot back in an office !
