  1. Never lie to a X-ray machine. They can see right through you... harry.
  2. I’m fairly sure it has 301s, but not 100% sure on that, the only decent part in Elizabethan was the part about the Tyger and the Virginia colony for me
  3. We did Elizabethan England fortunately, teachers where very helpful with that one (didn’t teach us the content) I’m planning on making XJ824 at duxford
  4. I found that History paper today to be exhausting, could have been worse though, the paper could have been on the role of women in Nazi germany….. The decals for the Vulcan are very good, built one several years ago and plan on another once I've settled in Duxford.
  5. How did the maths paper 3 go today? I found it alright I must say. Great work with the Vulcan, its certainly looking good so far. harry
  6. I looked into this aircraft, unfortunately though this a RAF version, though the colour scheme did come in handy!
  7. Tell me about it! Look ages trying to re-size them!
  8. Hi all, Here is my Douglas Dakota finished in SAAF markings. Having taken a break from britmodeller, I have recently gotten back into full swing. And with my 3 year britmodeller anniversary just gone round the corner, I thought I would share my most recent work. This project proved trickier than anything I have ever done. My main issue was locating a correct and accurate colour scheme for the time and period chosen. I eventually settled on Desert transport command, fixed with a North Africa colour scheme. Finding the correct shades of colour proved even harder, having only managed to get hold of 4 pictures total of such aircraft in North Africa at the time! Finally, the decals. While some of the original kit decals where used, ( this being the Airfix 1/72 Dakota) I had to virtually make the decals from scratch, nobody to date has made 1/72 decals for SAAF markings widely available on the open market ( atleast I know off). The decals where pretty straight forward once I got the hang of it, using GIMP software I was able to attain the correct shades of orange associated with the roundels at the time. The rest just fell into place! Right then, onto the victor I suppose! harry https://i.pos BFB7-31-F021-D5-D67-C.jpg[/img]
  9. I suppose I shouldn’t mention the competition we have on the 7th, the one with 70 members going
  10. We have the same sort of issue here in Dubai, though there is a shop called Otaku.me, try them out. I believe they do shipping in the Middle East.
  11. Spent the day onboard today and I’ll admit they’ve done a cracking job
  12. Found these in the collection if anyone needs them for a future build
  13. I think they gave up when they reached the Tornado... https://m.facebook.com/RoyalAirForceMarham/photos/a.359486217505045.1073741828.353862721400728/1601312156655772/?type=3&source=54
  14. My apologies Mike it's a bad habit of mine! Thanks Gents for the suggestions, I'll make sure to try your ideas, fortunately I picked up some 2 part epoxy filler while in the UK so I'll go ahead and use that! Hopefully the Tonka will be ready for the competition, I'll make sure to keep you updated. Now... what colour sceme should I choose?
