  1. We are keeping an eye on this as events unfold. Chris is still poorly and in intensive care at St George's Hospital, Tooting. Four individuals have been arrested and charged with perverting the course of justice. This has been gleaned from local newspaper reports and some contact with people who know Chris. IPMS Farnborough have sent Chris a get well card and we will try and arrange visits when he is able for them.
  2. I've had old Scale Models article from 1979 in my possession since new.These pictures from the article are syill very usefull.

    OV1 Mohawk.

    It looks like it was caused by a high speed stall during a rolling, climbing manoeuver.

    Many traders will be claiming they are offering show discounts - and many do. I might be on the lookout for some up to date and more portable compressor equipment for airbrushing. My current set-up uses a large and very noisy garage compressor which would be nice to replace with something more modern and quiet. I may also splash out on some RP tools. Regarding demonstrations, they are often held at individual stands - sometimes linked to the various model magazine and book publishers. They can be quite informative. A few years ago there was a room set aside for some demos which was quite good although I don't recall a similar set up in more recent years - unless I missed it. There is so much to see at Telford that it is easy to miss a lot of what is going on. .
  5. It dates from around 1974/75. At that time, Airfix produced some real crackers. Contemporary kits worth looking at in the same vein are the F-80 Shooting Star and the F-84F Thunderstreak. The only issue that some modern modellers might not like are the raised panel lines.
  6. No wonder the laminar flow principle was found to be rather useless in practice.
  7. You will probably be overwhelmed.
  8. I get the impression that the "customer" wants a "cartoon" of a dog fight rather than a realistic portrayal of one. The customer is not Roland Emmerich by any chance?
  9. I have the Italeri Vb in the stash. I might actually build it some day.
  10. Very nice. I've always read that this kit was a bit iffy regarding shape and detail. However, your';s looks fine.
  11. I only ever went to it twice - once in 1990 and again this year. The only reason I didn't go too often is because out of deference to a harmonious home life I always rationed my model show visits to about four a year. Sadly, as some of you might know, my wife passed away earlier in the year and as part of my coping technique I decided to try to get to more model shows. Southern Expo was my first for 2019 and I really enjoyed it.
  12. Amazing result considering it's a vacform. I thought my Airfix Wellington build (1985 to 2017) was a candidate for the slowest build in history. I was wrong.
  13. Sad to hear that this could be the last Southern Expo for a while. It's one of the oldest established model shows on the calendar. Hopefully, it will re-emerge in some form eventually.

    I ran into trouble with a Northern Ireland banknote at Greenham Common in 1976.
