  1. Good to see them again,they are an absolute masterclass and prove there's life in those old moulds yet
  2. This is making me more figittedy than waiting for a new suffix kid at Christmas as a kid! Please can we move across to current builds? That'll be like getting the decorations up!
  3. I don't think he's done a BoB, but @nimrod54 has shown what can be done with these kits in some amazing detail work. For nameplates, Fox Transfers seem to be the specialists https://fox-transfers.co.uk/etched-plates?class=1707&scale=2235 With a good selection of the fleet available, then if you want you can also track down replacement wheels, couplings etc. No pressure, but I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes along

    DIORAMAS I WOULD LIKE TO BUILD

    Red Feather Club is fascinating, both the website and the museum. If you're planning a trip, I'd suggest aim for the weekend of 16/7 June as they've a lot on ice the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the BG; surprised that's not on their website, but as I'm meeting two of the leading lights this evening, I'll drop a hint! Another things was that the runway went across the road on the eastern edge so everything stopped (literally) at take off time, but it was a big local event to go and watch. I very much doubt if there was anywhere quite like it for how cheek by jowl civilian and military were. I'd always thought of doing it in split scale to give some perspective, but to emphasise the proximity all in 1:72 is a good idea. Now all I need is somewhere for 95th BG decals!

    10th BM Anniversary GB Chat

    Oh the votes have started, I was enjoying the delay as I didn't have to choose between the amazing builds and diversity in there. And so many excellent threads that didn't make the finish line. Really a great GB, what's next? Oh, I've lost my mojo in the RAF build so hoping for a resurgence in the nostalgic Airfix in a couple of weeks. Laters everyone! Crumbs, only one votes?! This is harder than making the models

  7. Somehow I think this cost you more than £1.50!

    BM 10th Anniversary Gallery

    Porsche 910, tenariv 1:43 resin
  9. Strange but true! I've finished, photos in the gallery tomorrow all being well. Meanwhile, did you think of a number? It is indeed a Porsche 910, the original won the 1967 10,000 Km Nurenburgring in 1967. It the 1st time I've completed a GB - things are looking up Thanks to the numerous fellow GBers for all the support, encouagrement, distracting links etc. etc And more good hosting from, well, the hosts!
  10. I've splashed some paint around... But, the reviews are right! This isn't the most enjoyable kit out there. I can see that a lot of filler is going to be consumed by those joints, the instructions are vague, but then so is the fit in a lot of places. The plastic is decidedly odd - it is think but very pliant and I've inadvertently bent a piece in my hands! Hope to press on seriously soon, but it's a mojo sapper. Then there is the fact that I keep getting distracted by going back and dipping into Dad's set of Don Minterne's comprehensive 3 volume history of 73 squadron and all modelling stops for several pages!
  11. I'll squeeze one more pic in This Will convince me that I did fit one of the lens and didn't dream it come the morning. If there's no photo here, it's all very x files

    In playful mood, but actually respectful of local history; Horham was home to the 95th BG and the dispersals were remarkably close to the village. There are at least two tales of privy's (what is the plural of privy) having the doors blown away by prop-wash. I think it could be gone with a 1:144 B-17 and an OO railway out-house kit to give a fore-shortening effect. Main think would be to sort out the 95BG markings in that scale (or any scale!!)
  13. Next stop will be the gallery,so here's a parting one, the rear now finished,which is of course the view everyone had by the end of the race Drilled the rear light for some depth and clear fix over the top. As you can see one was better the other,but all good learning
  14. Are we allowed 2 galleries for this GB? Completed builds as normal for models and a second for the modellers!?
  15. That'll scare the carpet monster off,this may be the future of modelling: construction modelling that is
