  1. As qouted by Michael Veitch in one of his books (either 'Flak' or 'Fly', I can't remember which) to the tune of 'As Time Goes By': The Barracuda two Will be the death of you On that you can rely No matter what their Lordships say It still can't fly Nice work on one of those almost but quite ugly aircraft that the FAA seemed to find somewhere. Good to see a post war scheme on one as well. DennisTheBear
  2. I've got the same kit, I've seen some photos from Katowice, but I never thought of doing this! Superb job and I love the weathering on the wings. DennisTheBear
  3. I remember building this kit about 1978 or 1979. It was the first one I painted in the 'proper' colours (well, the outside). Yours looks much better than mine, certainly. DennisTheBear
  4. That is an amazingly well done diorama! Superb figure, AFV, and base!! As others have said it really conveys the emotion of the subject in a difficult time in Chinese history. DennisTheBear (also known as Da Xiong)

    Nice Jugs!

    It is clear from some of those photos why the P-47 was so strong. They simply used sections of the factory roof trusses and put skins on them! Great photos, and some really tempting diorama possibilities there. DennisTheBear
  6. This is post 780 for me and I only recently was classified as an 'obsessed member'. After reading this I might just have to get myself one of these new-fangled Eduard Spitfires. DennisTheBear
  7. Ohhh, I have this very kit in the stash (present from my sister-in-law , the only person in my family who buys models for me)! I'll follow along if you don't mind. Can't wait to see the finished build. DennisTheBear
  8. Sorry, no WIP. Basic OOB, complete with interuptions from flood, famine, etc. DennisTheBear
  9. Cool! My daughter (the Little Bear) was eyeing off mine in the stash this morning for "daddy's next build". I think I'll follow along on this to pick up some tips. Mind you mine will have to wait until I finish my QANTAS Super Constellation. DennisTheBear
  10. Happy Birthday Humbrol! Still my go to paints for all things modelling. DennisTheBear
  11. Hasegawa 1/72 Kawanishi H8K1 Emily (with markings for one that bombed Townsville where I live), Tamiya masking tape, Italeri 1/72 C-119, two more Italeri 1/72 C-47 along with some MAVDecals for them (Rhodesian and Katangese). Some other kits and sundries. DennisTheBear
  12. Hmm, interesting discussion. One thought that springs (well, ok, with my expanding waistline more like slouches) to mind is whether the Lysander might have continued in use for its role as an agent delivery system, perhaps into Soviet territory. After all James Bond had to get there somehow. DennisTheBear

    Stash storage

    Oh fortunate son of our Antipodean capital, high 30s for only a week or two. I dream of such ease during summer. DennisTheBear
  14. Let me see...ahh...2 x Italeri C-47s, a Hobyboss Mi-4, a Mistercraft Magister (yes yes, but I needed one more for free shipping), some MAVDecals (for the C-47s), WWII propoganda posters, Korean War maps, barrels and boxes, and an Italeri C-119. All in 1/72 of course.
