  1. From a Porthlevener living in Helston, I'm honestly not sure if I'm offended or if I agree entirely! Glad they managed to get out safely after putting it in a hedge
  2. I managed to get some from Mike's Models a couple weeks ago but they now seem to be out of stock of black. I heard the distributor was expecting some end of Feb, bit it's still showing out of stock everywhere so I guess not.
  3. https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-48-avro-lancaster-b-mk-i-hk-models/ Plastic looks ok to me. Still need to see if it fits together before I buy.
  4. I'm really coming around to getting one of these. When I got back into the hobby a few years ago it was with the allure of building a Lanc, so a new tool 1/48 is very tempting. I've seen their 1/48 b17 though, so I'm on the fence until I've seen how it goes together.
  5. Model kits for less have some Gotha's on the way according to Facebook.
  6. Phantoms have never done anything for me. I don't understand their appeal but I know I'm in the minority. But £100? Ridiculous.

  10. Even less forgiveable that this isn't new. I don't remember where, but I read this week's ago. I think it mas maybe from airfix responding to a question on Facebook.
  11. Considering it was originally due early 2019, I wouldn't hold your hopes u.
  12. Honestly, doesn't look like they have to go too far to beat the zvezda kit from what I've seen of it.
  13. Many say kitty hawk chopper kits are their best, and aren't plagued by the problems found in other subjects.
  14. I think you're being a little harsh. what I hope this has over the older kits is fit. If it goes together well, for the average modeller that'll be great. "you need to add cockpit..." is strong words. Yes, the kit lacks details in these areas but there is no "need" to add anything. I'd be happy to spray the cockpit blue and lay down the decals. Its not a part of the kit I'm that bothered about and if I ever put out pictures of my work, it won't be what anybody else sees. Infact the lack of cockpit detail is mildly attractive as I won't feel a need to concentrate on the parts of a k
