    BBC news

    Am I reading right that, currently, it's a solely British project?
  2. Here's one with the whip aerial... Here's one with the extension... http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/photo/000659391L.html I think this is the most similar to the Airfix black scheme. And here's the original further down the page (picture three?) http://ulsteraviationsociety.org/shorts-tucano-t1-g-btuc Sems to be a mix of black and white depending on the year/wind/phases of the moon
  3. From memory, they're only suitable for the red and white version in the box, the black version needs a little bit of plastic rod on one or two of the aerial blades to be accurate, though there is also a third option with a small whip aerial instead of a blade, but I can't remember the colour scheme. Best bet is to Google it and go from there, typing in the ZFxxx should help narrow the search
  4. Please tell me a minesweeper variant is in your future plans?!
  5. Watch out for the aerials, the ones supplied are not the ones on the actual aircraft. Really must get on and finish my one!

    What if WW2 never happened?

    That said, he had hoped that a prolonged war in the west between France, Germany and the U.K. would leave the USSR as the dominant power. Makes you wonder what would've happened had France invaded Germany soon after the invasion of Poland, or the western front in 1940 had gone on for longer...

    What if WW2 never happened?

    I think I might have said this on another site, but I suspect Uncle Joe might have been tempted to waltz into Europe à la C&C: Red Alert... Still, very nice job, what's next? Silver Whirlwind?

    Harrier GR.1

    Re: the new GR.3. Apart from the the too short tail, I believe it's meant to be a rather nice representation of the mark. Though as with any kit opinions vary!

    Knowing how you love to get your hands a good tool Ced (fnar fnar) have you looked at getting one of these to help with your centring issues? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0012RQG94/ref=asc_df_B0012RQG9452652534/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22110&creativeASIN=B0012RQG94&linkCode=df0&hvadid=226606326869&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4366771107717444658&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006515&hvtargid=pla-579180014632&th=1&psc=1 Other retailers are available....

    Spitfire Mk.22 x 2 - Airfix 1/72

    I realise I'm now two pages late, but there is still a company that makes the original Mithril Silver. Under a different name to prevent a court case obviously... The Coat d'arms range, other retailers are available and they seem to be a very reasonable price if you look around. https://www.blackhat.co.uk/coat-darms/7791-2/

    From Failure to Failure

    There, just corrected things for you If it's any consolation, I live in the most expensive area in the U.K., with one income stream, working for the NHS (No I'm not a doctor). I feel your pain and often wonder how I manage to survive month to month
  13. Since I'd imagine yours would be in plastic I wouldn't give up! Not everyone likes to/can work in resin....

    posting images from Flickr

    I use the Flickr app via my iPad, apart from a hiccup on the site when I was trying to post yesterday, that still seems to work as ever it did.
