    What's your day-job?

    I did an a apprenticeship at BAe Hatfield then spent a couple of years on the development side of the 146,left to go in the Navy,sadly that didnt work out so ended up back at Hatfield and also Leavesden but working for Rolls Royce on engine test beds,brilliant job but missed the aircraft side of things so back to BAe and into the flight shed. Now at Cambridge on nights working on C130's and loving it.

    Why on earth you are sticking these bits on an old Airfix kit is beyond me,with your skills I would have thought a full scratch build would be childs play.☺.
  7. Hi Heather,have you seen the Modelart decals,they do a lot of French subjects. https://www.modartdec.com/mads-172.html One of the sets is for roundels of the period your interested in. Neil.
  8. I recall a magazine build that mentioned that the undercarriage bays in the wing are too far aft,not sure if that is correct or not though.

    Acadamy Stuart Tank

    Hi guys,I dug one of the above out of the stash as I have always liked this little tank ever since makeing the matchbox kit,have been doing a bit of research on it and I have read that the lovely interior detail is wrong for a british Machine.Is there a an easy way to improve it or am I looking at a total scratch build job.Any advice would be very welcome. Many thanks Neil

    Harrier FRS1 Falklands War

    As far as I am aware,nozzles aft,flaps up and gear doors closed,but the gear doors could be opened for servicing.Falklands war fit was one sidewinder per wing.
