  1. Thank you Our Ned, I’ll see if I can get a back issue
  2. Afternoon all, Anyone else had a Bucc with mould issues or "short shot"? Had this one arrive earlier and its missing a large chunk of the lower RH intake area right back to the double tabs for the location of the compressor face part. Have emailed Airfix Customer Service with some pics and requested a new part so will see what happens. Eng
  3. First of all thank you to everyone throwing there Bucc knowledge into this superb pot of info, awesome stuff. Quick new question that I cant see having been asked already, but please ignore this if it has. On Xtradecal sheet X72307 theres a lovely Navy Bucc XT277 from the 60's in an experimental "Squirrel Grey" scheme. Does anyone know what this roughly equates to in modern parlance or have any specific info on the colour used? Initially I thought it looks very similar to med sea grey but comparing it to the example on sheet X72308 its darker, possibly closer to the modern camo grey. Any thoughts? Eng
  4. Thats a stunning build This kit is very buildable, I wasn't going to get one until the RAF variant arrived but I cave and haven't been able to leave it alone..... ....then I ordered another one I liked it that much. This confirms that my second one will defo need to be EDSG over white. Superb work and a finish to die for, absolutely gorgeous. Eng
  5. Hannants Xtradecal sheet X72308 has XX895 in the grey scheme with the "eye" Eng
  6. I've lost count of how many I've got on the go but I do agree with the post above, too many on the go becomes overwhelming. I find i can manage what I've got by making a list and prioritising what I want to finish, doesn't help being a slow builder either. Oh, and then if there happens to be some nice shiny new kit appear, that always throws a spanner in the works too! Eng
  7. Couple of quick pics of this beauty. Some lovely surface detail and panel/rivet lines match up nicely across the fuselage join. From my first look I can highly recommend this one. Eng
  8. Evening all, The Pave Hawk is now slowly becoming more widely available and via a well known auction site I've now, finally, got a Pave Hawk in my grubby mitts. Its a rather impressive kit indeed, not to mention rather big! Eng
  9. Thats absolutely superb Al, one of my fave light aircraft and in Euro One came... even better. I've been sorely tempted by this kit in the past, this is further temptation!! Nice one, Eng
  10. Good Afternoon, I can help you out here! Can you please DM me some contact details please. Eng
  11. https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/kh/kit_kh_50006.shtml Quick review up here for anyone who's interested in the Pave Hawk Eng
  12. Any sign of a release date for the HH-60G? Could still be tempted by one of these but seems to have all gone quiet. Eng
  13. Morning folks, Very strangely, and totally out of the blue I received an envelope this morning containing a hand written letter from Martin Garrett apologising for the delay in sending decals I had ordered a long while back, and that this had been due to ongoing family health issues. The letter was very polite and sincere, and the decals were included. Eng
  14. Looking at the pics above and the photo in the previous comment of the Saudi jet, I would say those guards could be fitted with the probe in the deployed position. We use FOD/Run guards when carrying out runs on the A319/320/321 at work, but ours are basically large wheeled cages that sit round the front of the inlet, the back edge of the cage has a cutout that the nose of the inlet sits inside and there's a clearance of about 6-9 inches around this to allow for the aircraft shaking around during the runs.
