    The Worst Ferrari F1 Car

    Very nice modelling but far from the worst F1 Ferrari. The 1973 B2 / B3 and the 1980 312T5 spring to mind as far worse performers. And certainly the "double floor" concept was tried again by Ferrari on the F310 and Torro Rosso on the STR6. Also very interesting to know it's been rereleased by Fujimi seeing Modelers kits are so hard to find these days at least in this neck of the woods.

    Hawker Henley TT

    Thought I had a photo of the Formaplane kit I nearly finished back in 1986 but couldn't find it. From memory it was still in gloss but had decals applied so maybe got up to matting it down but then life got in the way ..... Also jolting the memory was the plastic - very strange feel to it and when sanding the main parts from the sheet i didn't notice that the line I was sanding to was self forming so my fuselage parts ended up being a bit skinny. I think I tried to fix it a bit by card spacing and filling but can't recall if I eventually got it to match the plans or not. I used the vacuform canopy but added the framing from very thin card and painting. Also there was an article with some good photos in this : Hope this helps.

    A350-900 to A350- 1000 fuselage extension sizes

    Was searching to see if anyone had had a go at making a -1000 out of two -900s and could only find this thread. Interested in any discussion as to how to go about making a -1000 given the published changes for example :
  5. Are you sure you didn't use them on one of your other Group Builds?

    Airfix B737-200C Finnair Cargo

    Hey Ray do you want to sell or swap something for the kit's Ansett decals if you aren't going to use them? All of my -200 boxings are old and don't have those decals and if I ever get around to doing a -200 it'll be an Ansett one.

    Boeing 737 STGB chat

    I'd like to join this STGB too. Scale will be 1:144 but have no idea which type or scheme yet (but will probably be the Zvezda kit if doesn't present any difficulties and I can get it in the next few weeks) and scheme probably an Australian Airline (of some real or WIFF description if allowed of course). Then again if the P-8 for the RAAF looks the part and there is an easy conversion for it I might give it a go ...
  9. Enjoying this build too. And yes does look like an odd scale Typhoon. Makes you wonder what the 138B airframe must have looked like being a two seater and with the Kestrel intended as the engine.

    In case people don't know You really know what you are talking about referencing The Tortoise and the Hare as legend has it that you were there at the first telling of it by Aesop ... (Part of the Peanut Gallery / Cheer Squad looking on with interest and knowing that you'll get there ... eventually!)

    Short Belfast - Australia

    And if you ask Cairns Airport what the situation is this is their reply : Good afternoon, Unfortunately we are unable to pass on any information regarding the Short Belfast. Thank you. Lots of talk on various Forums but no one has started any sort of Fund Raising to try and save "him" so sadly it looks like we Australians are the ones who are going to get the "blame" for not saving "him".

    Handley Page Herald

    The Specification I read added up to 43 inches from : "Fuselage length increased from 71 ft 11 in to 75 ft 6 in and maximum accommodation rose from 47 to 56 seats." and I have just reread the article and in the text says : "Handley Page launched in 1960 a further improved version, the Series 200, which was lengthened by 42 in (107 cm), with corresponding increased weights, allowing up to 56 passengers to be carried" talk about confusing! 42 must be right as it's also the answer to "THE" Question.
