  1. Thanks for the heads up, first thing I'll check when I get around to buying mine. Is this a relatively common Airfix problem? I ask because the only kit I've encountered this problem myself was also a recentish Airfix kit, a new tool Gladiator to be exact.
  2. I went drinking with the Beach Boys at the weekend, it was alright until I asked who's round it was.
  3. Supposedly they're still harder to rehome for a typically 21st century reason, because black cats don't photograph as well they don't appeal to the sort of people who like to plaster their lives over social media.

    The Weather,

    Doesn't help at night when you're trying to sleep though. I don't mind hot days, it's the muggy nights which go with them (at least in Britain) I don't like.
  5. I found that channel a month or so ago, my favourite is this noisy Husky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4E4l0P7rSk&t=167s She does cats too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy4e-R8FiR4&t=4s
  6. I wouldn't go quite that far, I do still like Eduard kits but yes, Cartograph decals are a major plus point when I decide whether to buy an individual kit.
  7. September's is now available, with a treat for Biggles fans: https://www.eduard.com/out/media/distributors/leaflet/leaflet2021-09en.pdf
  8. Orange merged with T-Mobile to form EE, 3 are a separate and unrelated company.
  9. There used to be (and might still be) a skip hire company in Leicester called T Watts Ltd.
  10. I asked my wife, 'am I the only one you've ever been with?' She said 'yes, the others were all nines or tens'
  11. It does seem silly and counter intuitive that we're advised to post miscellaneous modelling threads in a section labelled 'none modelling related chat'. If there's no appetite for creating a stand alone 'general modelling chat' section, maybe just amend the description of the existing chat section to eliminate the confusion?
  12. I have the Ferret in my stash, mainly bought for nostalgia value as I built one when I was a kid in the 80s, reminded me a little of Firefox at the time. When I eventually build it I'll go for a more interesting WHIF scheme than either of the 2 in the box though.
  13. Another Dalton fan here, in fact I'd go so far as to say he was the best Bond. I've never read the books but Dalton's portrayal seems to me a more believable interpretation of the psyche of someone who has done what a real life Bond would have had to do. I agree with that, certainly as a child/teen the Roger Moore Bond films were my favourites with their over the top gadgets, action scenes and silly humour, watching them again in middle age they're my least favourite of the franchise.
  14. An IKEA Pax wardrobe shell with glass doors and shelves is an option. Main downside over a proper display cabinet is, being intended as a wardrobe, only the doors are glass, everything else is solid. Shelf depth is 580mm and either 460 or 960mm wide depending what size wardrobe you get. I use one of the narrow ones (with wooden doors and shelves) as my stash cupboard.
