  1. Stuart they are working on this as well, watch this space. All the best Chris
  2. Update, Ken received kit quickly. came flat packed in padded envelope with flattened box ready to be built. The seller is my main source for Mikromir and ive never had any trouble with them. As to the kit it comes as the final configuration X tail with a 7 bladed etch prop and a 6 bladed prop (made up of 2 3 bladed etch parts). The moulding is nice with crisp panel lines, another pioneer from Mikromir, keep em coming. With the two versions of the Parche on the way and a 3rd undisclosed US Nuclear boat in the offing (praying for an NR-1 or Ethan Allen) All the best Chris
  3. Just had delivered from the states, from JT Graphics the DLM Photo etch for Quonos one as in Star Trek the undiscovered country. The detail is exquisite, cant wait to slot this build in, have my K'Tinga waiting in the wings. All the best Chris
  4. Im there for the weekend on the West Middlesex stand, along with Panzer Vor, set up on friday, displaying sat sun, look forward to putting faces to names. All the best Chris
  5. A new submarine release from Mikromir 1/350 American submarine USS Albacore (AGSS-569), very nice to see the daddy of the tear drop shape. Just bought mine from evilbay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-350-American-submarine-USS-Albacore-AGSS-569-Mikromir-NEW/392403953393?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 All the best Chris

  7. Heres Dragons 1/350 Improved Los Angeles 688i with launching Tomahawks The kit went together reasonably well with just a little filler required, hand painted with humbrol enamels and satin/matt cote. Always a challenge to photo blacks with different sheens. All twelve VLS (Vertical Launch System) doors open, i decided to show the tomahawks in different launch phases, starting with; 1) compressed air ejection from silo to surface 2) rocket motor air launch 3)cruise missile engine takeover with wings deployed. Surprisingly the kit had a textured walkway surface on the top which greatly aided depiction of this. Anyway heres my pics. All the best Chris
  8. Another cracking job Ken, well done, nice to see more RN boats. All the best Chris
  9. Cracking job Christer, for your first submarine well done, welcome to the dark arts lol (submarines and sci-fi). All the best Chris
  10. Simply stunning, i can hear the blue danube playing, cracking job and lit to boot. All the best chris
  11. Cracking job Pappy, a great mod to show of the Surcouf's turret and plane. All the best Chris
  12. A big thanks to Nick and the crew, a great day was had by all. This show is one of my favourites, the warm welcome, lots to see and buy. Again many thanks for a great show, West Middlesex left loaded with goodies and lots of smiles all round. I personally nabbed a scarce submarine kit, from the bottom of a large pile and scooped a 1st prize in the competition. All the best Chris.
  13. Cracking job Ken, a nice deviation from all over shades of black for RN submarines, the DSRV's are a lovely addition in 1/350. All the best Chris
  14. Hi my solution was to build them all at 1/2500 see link, the only omission was the NX-01 as not available seperately, wasnt coughing up £100 just to get it. Personally if 1/350 not possible go for the AMT 1/537 smoothy TMP or WOK, the later ones have over done panel lines., would also sit nicely with revells 1/600 from DS9 trouble with tribbles version that they try to fob off as original series, which its not. And of course the JJ Abrams 2009 Enterprise and not forgetting the original AMT TOS, the Discovery version of the Enterprise is due out shortly at 1/2500. All the best Chris
  15. For space saving, i photograph the box art, recycle the box and save the photo to my computer to add to pics of completed model. At one point i did save the box lids but after completing a hundred odd models i found it took up valuable storage space for the stash and displaying models. Chris
