  1. Beautiful work. I've always admired the Frog kit as a great example of what they could do well. I have one in the stash just for the building of it as I'm not particularly interested in the aircraft or period.
  2. Tempted though the German reviewer did a test fit which wasn't good at all.

    Pilot Figures 144th Scale

    Aeroclub released 1/144 whitemetal cold-war pilots with IIRC Mk4 MB ejection seats many moons ago. They occasionally pop up on ebay,

    Aldi Airfix starter kits .

    Expect to see them all in next year's SMW Kit Swap for a pound more.
  5. Not an everyman kit though. The engine is a nice to have, but will probably double the price of the kit.

    My local clasic car show

    I was at smaller one in Shelley the same day
  7. They are actually both by the same author. Shocking how many reviews (not just these) have missed the white underwing serials and spurious colours.

    Macchi M.5. Fly. 1/48

    Cor blimey! I think the water is maybe even better than the amazing aeroplane.
  9. Dam, you're good at mecha too!
  10. Cheers Ali, duly ordered.

    Photobucket images are back

    Ruddy typical I recently applied the ~original hack to 30,000 posts on our forum
  12. Hurrah a Centaurus for my Fury... OK it's not a full super detailed engine but I guess not much beyond the piston heads is visible. BTW the mock up image is a bit blurry, though the parts image below shows some nice details.

    Model Factory Hiro 1/43 Alfa TZ2

    Wow, the metal parts especially the tubular framework looks amazing. The detail would be excellent if it were 1/24. I steer clear of 1/43, 1/32 limits my ambitions. Basically you can get anything you want in 1/43 for a price and I would be destitute and homeless within the year!

    Airfix Classics Launched

    It's the kits that had relatively short lifespans and now garner collectors prices that I'd like to see for us who actually want to build the dam things. I'm mainly thinking of the the car kits that didn't last beyond the period the actual vehicles were on the road. Cars have limited appeal and kits like the Vauxhall Viva and Victor are probably not worth the effort, but the Capri, Jaguar 420 and Mercedes 280 SL are still classic cars may still find a market.

    Airfix Wimpy for 2018

    Despite the wing being on fire it really doesn't look that dramatic. Looks like they could be having a BBQ
