  1. Agreed; David Bowie is an absolute legend; his influence can be heard in many bands; like the vocals in this one:
  2. I love Nick Drake, lovely photograph
  3. Good to hear from you Rog Hoping that you are not still in lockdown One of my stepsons is at MIT; suffered the vast lockdown last year, brief reprise in this tiny island of relative safety, known as ACT; then went back to Vic; into lockdowns Stay safe, you and yours; I hope that you can get some modelling done to pass away the indoor hours. Long recovery for me, so model building and music will be the therapeutic measures employed; once discharged from this fine Hospital. All the best Remember; wear a flask TonyT
  4. Hi! I am also in Canberra. Northside in my case. Welcome on board! This is a great community, lots of fun and a better group of people; you will struggle to find. I used to be on here a lot more, but my health took a dive. Hoping to be here more soon. Currently in The Canberra Hospital. My poor health means I have never been able to meet up with e.g. @Romeo Alpha Yankee, however, hospital visitors are currently very welcome, hint hint Looking forward to seeing your builds. As soon as I am home; I will be starting a build. Possibly a Gulf War Tornado. All the best TonyT
  5. Had no idea that there was a 1/24 kit of the Alpine. It looks fantastic. Great start with primer and colour. Watching with enthusiasm, Rally number plates? Good luck with the build Anthony
  6. Looking good Adrian. The Magna kits have a lot of resin, heavy, but interesting subjects. Im searching my memory for the correct name; but it also reminds me of a Polish Pre war prototype. in fact, one that may have flown right at the start of the war. PZL P-50 Jastrzeb maybe. Have a vac form of that by Broplan stuck with a friend in the UK… One day Keep up the good work Adrian; I see sanding sticks in your future…
  7. Thank you for the kind welcome back Adrian…. Its a long story but all going ok for now. Your Letov looks great with the paint and decals on. Such a big span on these birds. I hunted out the ‘AB Model’ kit today, then went to look at his website. Lovely models. Plus he has restored real railway wagons; is clearly a real artisan. Well worth a look for the variety of Letov variants and an incredible looking Farman Goliath. The end is in sight with this one Adrian. Really nice work Best regards Anthony
  8. Looking forward to this This is a kit that I have wanted for some time; as you say, there was an HMS Ajax version. My grandfather was on Ajax at some point, I’m told: Really want that boxing. However, seeing it made by anyone will be a treat. Good luck with the build Anthony
  9. Hello J-W Thank you; it’s good to be back The NA50 looks superb; I never knew that it existed. It will look great in Peruvian colours. I’m not sure, but maybe the Peruvians used the Curtiss P-36 too? The NA 50 really looks like the Boomerang from this end of the globe. Can’t wait to see your build. I will dig out my Academy kit and the decals. If it’s not too late, I will make a bit of a start tomorrow. All the beat Great to be back, thank you for the kind words, Tony
  10. Great to see you building this kit… I made it around 17 years ago. in bed! How I ever got all those struts to line up I will never know. it looks great Adrian you are doing a lovely job. For the radiator it the front, you can make a nice feature if you go for it. Rub a little pencil graphite into it after painting it with metallics. If you would like to see a photo of my dodgy attempt from years ago; think I have one somewhere. Also an unmade ‘AB Model’ with the KP Kit as the base, but resin bits for a different engine; a prototype of some kind. Keep up the good work; it looks smashing so far; that jig is very clever. All the best Tony
  11. Hello Is it too late to enter the Group Build? I have an Academy 1/72 kit and some funky French decals. Possibly a war in Algeria subject All the best TonyT
  12. Well done Dave, that really is a beautiful model that you have made. I love the Bristol information leaflets in the frame; a great way to display it. All the best from Canberra Inspired by your build. Tony
  13. Hello Pat, My sincere apologies for the lack of contact. Two years from hell. I know that my record of being in group builds is poor now. However, I have a lovely Matchbox Mosquito, right here by the side of the bed, ideal for this. Please could you consider putting me in? Also send me a message - I'm not quite myself and not very good with IT at the moment. It would be great to catch up with you. All the best TonyT
