  1. Hunting around for the B-wing release date I came across this little thing, ok I'm not interested in the 1:144 X-wing more the Death Star tile pieces. http://bandai-hobby.net/sw/jp/products/death_star_attack_set.html

    New 22" Eagle Lab Pod

    I'm still trying to fathom why Round2 are not selling the standard passenger and the cargo pods as standalone add-on kits and for that matter why they don't sell a naked Eagle.

    How to break superglue bond?

    stick it in the freezer, the cyano should go brittle and then be snappable.
  4. Is this the same 3 legged kit that has both large landing gear doors the same even though they should be handed? If it is then I'm surprised they fit even that well.

    a question about Zimmerit on tiger I tanks

    i will stick my neck out and say flat horizontal plates probably didn't have zimmerit, as it was supposed to prevent magnetic mines from sticking to the metal plate, if you've got the mine on to a flat horizontal bit gravity is in your favour.

    Self Loading Rifle 1/35

    Yes, there is a big hole in market for Brit cold war period stuff other than tanks, need soldiers and soft skins. Be nice see an Austin K series truck too, that's all that seems to appear in my Dad's REME National Serice pics from his time in Germany.

    Best Bandai Star Wars kit

    I'm going to say of the kits I've built so far the ones I've enjoyed the most are the various trooper figures. The one I would not recommend to start with is the Y-wing, all those small pipe parts, what a nightmare to get in. Be prepared for breakages.

    Help me assemble a stash (1/35)

    but can you build a whole animal from the "stash", or just cutaways?

    Help me assemble a stash (1/35)

    i'm finding the title of the thread itself funny! Surely if you assemble a stash, you just end up with a collection of made up model kits??

    Thunderbird 3 replica

    I wonder if it's the same one that used to be on the front in Blackpool up by the pleasure beach?

    What's With The Red & White Nuts???

    Hmm, I don't think you could remove the red nuts and have the rim explode off, as soon as you'd start to loosen them the air would begin to leak and you'd know your being a nominated for a Darwin. Though if any of you feel like demonstrating it's possible to remove the nuts and have the rim explode off, please post the video so the health and safety audit can use it.
