  1. Further to this (I haven’t actually asked him) but Mrs Lawer’s friend’s dad was in school,in Seaton (aged 7) in 1940 and saw a “nazi” plane almost at rooftop height. Now it’s a couple of miles as the crow flies to the harbour so there may actually be an eye witness to this....
  2. Not model related but I only looked at this GB today and happened to be speaking to the Mrs tonight and her friend is tracing back her family tree. Her grandad (Francis William Fisher Pirie) and quite possibly great grandad were killed in the raid. They were in the boiler makers club.....

    B26 question

    Hi folks, so pre-started a revell b26 and there’s this hole with nothing in the instructions the hole on the left. from the few starboard photo’s I’ve seen this is not there. I assume it’s a crew entry door but should I fill it in?
  5. A few months back I *bought* one but then the seller sold it to someone else because I took 15 minutes to pay......
  6. well it's been a while since I posted pretty much anything on here..... even with the extra amount of modelling time due to covid (although I've been back at work for the last 2 months) I haven't got *that* much done. Managed to get a 1/24 airfix ju87 finished which had sat on the shelf for nearly as long as the typhoon. So progress from nearly 18 months ago (can;t believe it's that long!): Had a bit of a heart stopping moment with the decals. Got them on easier than I thought (due to their size!) and a few coats of microsol then once dry another coat of gloss coat. Well didn't all the large decals bubble up......thankfully seem to have settled down... There's a stencil on each wing just outboard of the outer canon ejection port which says "check firing circuits before connecting leads" (presumably for rocket fittings) and when I came to gloss these one was missing. For the life of me I could not find the little bugger. Checked the brush I'd used for the gloss coat and even the blue roll I'd used to remove excess liquid. After some time of trying to convince myself I'd actually applied it I gave up and went downstairs. Mrs said to me "what's that on your forehead"?......I'm sure you can guess the rest Anyway not too much more to do. Piping in the wheel bays is the main thing. Made up the MLG legs - not too convinced they are going to take the weight.......
  7. It would seem not. FE431 (as on the link you posted) on Eduard's site seems just to be the cockpit parts : https://www.eduard.com/Eduard/C-47-Skytrain-interior-S-A-1-48.html?listtype=search&searchparam=fe431 whereas the set you mentioned (49431) includes both (as you said): https://www.eduard.com/eduard/c-47-skytrain-interior-s-a-1-48-1.html?listtype=search&searchparam=49431
  8. According to Wikipedia 45 P61-A1’s were built with the last 7 of those without turrets. on this page http://www.forgottenprops.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/p-61_black_widow.html it lists them and yours is the 43rd of those so by my reckoning no turret.
  9. Hey Steve, Hope you and family (and everyone else for that matter!) are OK in these strangest of times. I’ve currently got 5 builds stalled at the mo. Keep the faith brother! Ian

    Ode to Mr T

    Found an email someone sent me in 2002: Every time a church bell rings, Mr. T pities a fool. Mr. T speaks only when necessary. His main form of communication is folding his arms and slowly shaking his head. And regardless of the situation, he is always understood. Mr. T pities fools because even fools deserves their daily dose of vitamin T. Mr.T once punched Chuck Norris at the exact moment he roundhouse kicked Mr.T in the chest. the result was the 80's. 23. That's the number of people Mr. T has pitied in the time it has taken you to read this sentence. On the A-team, Face , Haniabal, and Murdoch were all masters of disguise. Mr T didn't have to wear a disguise. The bad guys didn't recognize him out of fear. Mr. T. does not break wind. He destroys it. Mr. T invented fools. Realizing the magnitude of his folly, he then created Pity. Despite popular belief, Mr. T in fact ended the civil rights movement by getting on a bus....all caucasian people moved to the back. Mr. T is allergic to doorknobs. That's why he can only kick through doors. Mr. T's pity for fools is used by mathematicians as a demonstration of the concept of infinity. There are only four horsemen of the apocalypse, because Mr. T is going to walk. Mr. T's edition of the VH1 show 'Where Are They Now' was the shortest in the show's history. It was 10 seconds long, and consisted of a black screen with the words "Right Behind You" written on it. Behind every great man, there is a great woman. Behind that woman is Mr. T. Mr. T is not black. It's just that the sun is to afraid to shine on him. Mr. T once bit off more than he could chew. He ate it anyway. Mr. T once pitied the sun. An ice age followed. Mr. T puts the laughter in manslaughter. Mr. T was fired from the Psychic Friends Network for always predicting pain. Despite popular belief, if there is a fool in the woods, and nobody is around to hear his jibba jabba, Mr. T is still able to pity him. It took five women 2 years to give birth to Mr. T. Chuck Norris once challenged Vin Diesel to an arm wrestling match. Mr. T won. Mr. T once owned a beauty parlor called "I Pretty the Fool". No matter what anyone asked for, they always receieved mohawks and a heavy dose of pity. Mr. T never actually learned to drive, roads simply move to be where he is. There was a time when Mr. T didn't pity fools. That time was called never. Mr. T cannot be killed by conventional means. The only known method to destroy him is prolonged exposure to jibba-jabba. Mr. T once won the Olympics. All of them.

    Airfix 1/24 stuka

    Folks, does anyone have (probably the newest boxing) the above in their stash? need the product code off the little white sticker on the box. i know it’s A18002A but there’s more info on the sticker. cheers! ian
  12. Oh I have MANY questions like this that if anyone were to ever to do a kit builder’s version of “fact hunt” (10 points if you get that!) would be included!
  13. I just had a quick scout on mr google and I came out with something similar.... oh my - some of the discussions you can find about it though.......
  14. Folks, whilst walking dogs a thought crossed my mind a few days ago. for anyone wanting an educated and informative question look away now.... So, a Hawker Typhoon has (had) a max all up weight of 13250lbs (according to wikipedia!). Now what would that equate to in 1/48 (surely there must be a formula to work it out)? Obviously dividing 13250lbs by 48 gives you 276lbs which certainly is not right. As I said a pointless and banal question but it's stuck in my head and as such other important information has had to make way...... Ian
