  1. well my wife has talked me out of this project bit exspensive for a "Toy" her words, and talked me into the 1/72 scale Bandai perfect Grade Millenium Falcon, as she is a semi Star Wars fan. will defintly get this one up as a build on here hopefully, will be painting this up and using the above mentioned hairspray method and will really go to town on the weathering and details. My Biggest decision will be Landing gear up or down. Mad Larkin
  2. Long time Lurker, rare poster, but I'm coming up on my 40th Birthday, and mid life crisis. I'm looking at buying and building the M16 Gun Carriage from Trupeter, now I have read a few reviews and realise this kit has a few minor flaws. so i would like to get reference material, spare parts and tips to try and make My M16 better than just plain old OOB. also advice on painting this beast, would like to do a Winter Camo, also I don't have access to an Airbrush, so id like to know if it is possible to paint this with brushes and rattle cans. My birthday isnt till May 21st so i have a bit of time to get things organised, will be making a dedicated file to put this info in so electronic files and pics would be really good Many thanks Richard
  3. I only have to wear those boots for 4 months at a time trust me they aren't comfy or decent at all. RFA chef,
  4. Has anyone else seen the Dragon 1/35 scale AT-AT and have any better information than that on the Dragon website. all i found was a picture, no measurements or anything so no idea of sizes or anything?
  5. So its been a long time since i started this topic and now i have need of it again. I recently moved back to my Dads ( Temporarily) and dug out of storage my Dragon Wagon, now i also have a Load in the form of a Panther Ausf A from Tamiya. what my question is, would the trailer skids under the load be left in place while in transit? Thanks in advance Mad (Richard)
  6. Seen it and OMG how cool. any ideas as to the Scale on the Hasbro Falcon. would help to find after market parts
  7. Thnx MadMonk, Mike hadnt reviewed the exact ones i was looking for, but i did find them in there. hopefully getting a couple of the level 3 kits for x-mas. which i will build OOB and possibly if i can talk the missus into letting me borrow her nice camera, and do a build thread for them. but that will be after the big move in the new year. Mad Larkin

Of course im not gonna use the paint brushes from the kits but the paints and kits look quite nice. nice to get back on BM after so long away at work. Mad Larkin
