  1. Apologies if this is i the wrong section, please feel free to move it. My son and I have recently visited the RAF Museum in Hendon after its recent make over and was rather impressed. Seeing the Bucc in close up again after many years (worked with them at RAF Abingdon) was very impressive. Looking at it just made me think that something wasn't quite right. The airframe in question is XW547 still marked up as 'Guiness Girl' I'd taken a few pics and checked when I got home. The powers that be have painted a veil over the young ladies chest!?! I could be wrong but if a museum attepmts to change history to spare a few blushes then what's next??????? Rant over.........for now
  2. Very nice indeed. I do enjoy making Monogram kits. Not as high tech as modern kits but normally very accurate
  3. Wow, stunning. I take my hat off to anyone able to make a model this good in such a small scale, great skills
  4. PITA it may have been but the end result is very impressive indeed, good skills
  5. Very nice! Can't believe I've been modelling some 35 yrs and I STILL haven't finished a Red!?! Must pull my finger out, thanks for the inspiration
  6. Very nice indeed, I had no idea that Russian aircraft had so many stencils! Really must invest in such a great looking model
  7. Stunning result! If this is the result of a difficult build then what on earth does a simple build look like????
  8. Very nice indeed, I really must get one for myself. A question if I may, out of the three, which did you prefer?
  9. Thanks for the info but I'm looking for USAF markings, not ones for the Marines. Thanks anyway
  10. Nothing listed on either site but thanks for the info. I'll keep looking
  11. Morning all. I'm currently constructing the Osprey in 1/48. Using the Blackdog set it will be a USAF CV22. Does anyone know of any decals for this version?? Any help will be gratefully received
  12. Very nice result, would lend itself well to 'what if' markings Oooooh Lord that X32 is just wrong!!!
  13. Very nice indeed. I've just started the 1/48 version with the Black Dog CV22 set. See them often out of Mildenhall and just luv the shape!!
  14. Very nice indeed. They regularly fly over my home in Kent. They're so distinctive even my kids id them long before they're visible!
  15. Very nice indeed. I see these wonderful machines most days over my home. We seem to be the turn around point for the Biggin trips here in West Kingsdown. They come to us, a few aerobatics and home for tea and medals!! Still have to stop and watch, one day perhaps................
  16. A 'training' of Hawks?? Must get out more! Great looking trio. Will a grey and an all black be joining them?
  17. For all those planning on converting the Tamiya D into a B, just remember this sage piece of advice, just after you finish your pride and joy, the model you just made will be announced as the next release, without the need to convert anything!?! Feel free to ask me how I know
  18. Great pair of jugs.............there, said it, someone had to Seriously though, excellent skills
  19. That looks great in Aussie colours!! These 'what ifs' really should happen in reality
  20. It's not embarrassing as it happens to us all!
  21. Very nice indeed! Who doesn't enjoy a Tiger Phantom?? Must indulge myself once my Mrs isn't looking!?!
  22. Great looking model of an extraordinary looking aircraft!
