    V 2 rocket being transported diorama.

    It doesn't get any better than that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All round brilliant from the landscape, the figures, the scratch build, not forgetting the paint which represent so many aspects of the diorama. Ian

    1980 issue Lancaster B111

    Its nice to see some further progress, I've stalled on mine doing the masking of the canopies. Shame about the etch but as they say "at least I know its in there" looking forward to seeing more Ian

    Amazingly I won both of these kits for just £11.50 plus the P+P. I have two conversions in mind . . . . happy days Ian

    I thought the same about the 45 pages . . . . . Thanks for the photo link. I think that clears that up. I shall look at the Airfix kit to locate the said division in the structure. thanks everybody Ian

    1/72nd Revell Halifax, Free French, Elvington 1945

    That camo looks really cleanly painted. Shame about the fin/rudder decal but surely not beyond hand painting ? I do believe the French aircraft had a lightly blue central on the roundel, pretty sure it is similar on the Elvington 'Halibag' Ian

    Yes, transport sections . . . I have seen that photo before so 'Thank you' for that but as I am looking at that photo it doesn't show how much wing root there is ?

    Had a look on Google for this one but no immediate joy. Can another body supply a diagram showing the 'Transport Section' for the Hurricane aircraft ??? many thanks Ian

    New 1/72nd scale Airfix Wellington

    Strange that . . . I have been using hum 33 for years, not the same tin, and recently used a small pot to paint two Lancasters by hand and I regards them as totally MATT.

    HK Lancaster ?.

    HK Models are pleased to announce the release of a 1/32 scale Lancaster BI/III Limited Edition plastic kit. With new tooling this astonishing kit includes EXTRA FUSELAGE AND NOSE SECTION in CLEAR PLASTIC giving you the choice of building the kit either using the clear plastic to highlight the incredible interior detail or as a conventional plastic kit using the detailed and textured grey styrene fuselage, nose and other parts. What’s in the box? • Two fuselage and nose sections – clear plastic and textured grey • Markings for 3 aircraft comprising R5868 OL – Q Queenie, R5868 PO-S Sugar and W4783 AR-G George • 23 Sprues – comprising 633 individual parts! • Comprehensive assembly instructions. The extra fuselage and nose section (clear plastic sections) will only be available with the first run of this kit and will NOT be included in additional runs so this really is a kit not to be missed! These are due to arrive in the UK in October/November. RRP for the kit! 'just'..............THREE HUNDRED & NINETY NINE POUNDS A Tad more than I thought it was going to be and as for the decal option . . . .

    New 1/72nd scale Airfix Wellington

    It looks to be a great kit, so much more far reaching than the previous Airfix offering. I shall be waiting for the MK III as they flew from my local station. The build certainly highlights the interior and I hope the turrets are also a vast improvement . . . I shall keep looking in. many thanks Tony for the demo, its great. Ian

    Plunge Moulding Tutorial: canopies

    Dennis YEARS ago I formed a turret from a length of wood to plunge and I thought it VERY basic but it worked. I wonder now if I could fill a canopy with AIR dried clay, let it set and use that to plunge ?? I am asking as I would like to know more about plunge forming rather than think about a vacuum forming machine Your thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated Ian
