    Finemolds Last Tomcat Baby! 1/72 F-14D

    Was glad to help. I have a 1/48 VX-9 sheet and guess which kit that is going on when its released. Robert
  4. Let's hope that they have used the suggestions when they first arrived on the scene from the UK IPMS show a good few years ago, which has shown no results so far. Robert
  5. Now do l finish my Hobbyboss one or park it never to finish it ? Saving up my pennies this is too good to miss. August 20th seems to be the release date according to the information on ARC and also and also extras ? http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/303452-148-tamiya-f-14d/&do=findComment&comment=2911384 Robert

    Airfix 2019

    Just going back to prices of current Mossie kits, if Airfix was to make a new one l would think the price would be more in the Beaufighter bracket i.e. over £20 so more than the Tamiya kit. OK if it is a 2 stage Merlin that would encourage sales so modellers would pay more. Robert

  8. Being short run a lot of cleaning up was needed then goes together well once the parts are seen to. The canopy needs a good polish as well. I also replaced the Firestreaks from the spares box. Robert
  9. AZ model of the SR.53 at the time of the 40th Anniversary of the RAF. Kit painted with Vallejo acrylics and pitot tube replaced with a needle. Robert

    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    Wonder if it has been 3D printed as there appears to be lines on the jet pipes when the picture is blown up and this would account for the not to clear details. Robert

    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    Hopefully we will see more pictures at the upcoming Shizuoka Hobby show in Japan. My guess is that it is 1/72 and due for a Christmas 2018 release. Robert
