    And if you get really desperate I'll have my junior surgeons set with me, so arms & legs can be exchanged for desirable kits at a pinch!!
  2. Let's hope Didier includes the Blue cheat lines in the K2 low viz option. Not one of his strong points as I found in the Britannia.

    It's not unknown for us to put kits under the front table while people sort out finance, like go to the cash machine etc.

    The only trader that readily springs to mind that has special prices( judging from the tickets all over the stall) is Wonderland Models.
  5. Tell David to save me some decal sets, that will save me some disappointment.
  6. Jure the 100 post rule is still valid, and requesting a donation of, or payment for an item surely belongs in that section?
  7. This should really be in the Wanted section of General Discussion, however you require 100 posts to use that facility. If a Mod spots this they may delete it.

    Certainly not; it just means all the translators are in one spot
  9. Fair comment, most of the guys involved with Britavia are long gone.
  10. Hi Scimitar Just located my Britavia example, the instructions show the upper surface of the rotor blades as Dark Sea Grey, with Matt Black for the lower surfaces and Matt Yellow tips. hth cheers Chris Hold everything, this info only applies to WG688 on HMS Bulwark 1955. For WG724 at Lossie in 1961, then it's Matt Black on both surfaces with Matt Yellow tips. I won't go looking for my Aerodrom one in the depths of the loft today, to much excitement already.
  11. Aerodrom also did an example some time back.

    Take the plunge, you can always take your books with you and study on the Sunday if inclined. Jabba will make room for you on the table for a chat.
  13. Hi Gooney Help me out here. I looked at H but can only see BMA72010 ( Lancastrian conv) as a future release with no visible details. I notice Glen is also listing a Halton conversion as a future release(another one done by Magna). I'm holding some decals for Dave at Combat which I'm hoping to pass to Colin to-morrow. cheers Chris
  14. Hi Paul Glen's normally well researched, but with Combat now holding the Magna moulds I did wonder. I'm seeing Colin at Modelfest to-morrow, so I'll give him the third degree. See you at the Nats
  15. Excuse my asking ,but what do the drawings in Aviation News have to do with Blackbird Models?. Oh I see, Blackbirds produced a conversion now. Glen's possibly used the Magna moulds.
  16. Seeing this is quite eerie, I have just completed one of these this week. Unfortunately one of the undercarriage doors had gone walkabout but I had a second one to rob
  17. Those re-union decals also crop up on Super/Microscale 72-621.
  18. Hi Wm The Revell offering seems to be the only one I don't have. In the cave at the moment with Airfix. Trumpeter, ICM & Hasegawa(reunion boxing) variants in the to do pile none of which look like your example. Haven't seen any reports on this one but perhaps a request to the IPMS( Mig Sig) might provide information. Sorry I can't be more help.
  19. Looking at Scalemates it would appear to be Revells own offering
  20. Mike just had the message appear 3 minutes ago as I tried to go to home from Aircraft modelling (modern) it took me out of the forum completely when I tried the F5 option on it.
  21. Brilliant build Steve. I've just finished Mach2's Britannia, or rather it's just finished me. You almost got a call as the kit comes without any cheat lines, but I had some Magna ones in the box. See you at Telford.
  22. Mikey Just to clarify the measurements for the underwing serials are the individual item,the total length is 63 mm. Likewise the 105 on the tail is 10mm overall. I'm quite happy to let you do the upscaling. Chris
  23. Grief, your asking something. With my strongest glasses on I checked out the dimensions on the Magna decal sheet:- The letter A = 19 x 13 Serial = 19 x 12 x 2 Red Diamond =18 x 10 Number( In diamond)= 5 x 3 105 on tail= 6 x 3.5 x 0.5 All measurements in millimeters ( roll on the return of feet & inches). hope this is of some use. cheers Chris
  24. Now David of Combat Models has the Magna moulds I'm hoping they will eventually reappear given time. Having both the Beverley & Belfast in the stash somewhere the state of the decals are of concern.
  25. Shame it's not 1/72. Magna carried options for XL148 & XM105. Sorry
