  1. 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.
  3. Dam, you're good at mecha too!
  4. Cheers Ali, duly ordered.

    Photobucket images are back

    Ruddy typical I recently applied the ~original hack to 30,000 posts on our forum
  6. 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
  10. Italeri have just re-released it as a double boxing with the X-35 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1135115-italeri-1419-joint-strike-fighter-program-x-32a-and-x-35b

    Westland Puma

    I think that bump under the rear fuselaglge should be a round observation window. It there in the Airfix kit.

    Short SC.5/10 Belfast

    This is the one Welsh Models large RAF aircraft kit that I decided not to get, now I find myself reconsidering.... Grrr!
  13. I would highly recommend this book to modellers and model kit manufacturers. Very good scale plans of all the aircraft. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Schneider-Trophy-Seaplanes-Flying-Boats/dp/1781551790
  14. I guess that was Pavla's plan when they released their S6 (in plastic and a resin kit!) but then stopped there I've built both the Karaya SeaLion and Gloster IIIB and have most of the rest. CMR did a nice Curtiss R3C. I want to see the ones not so far available.... I forgot to add the gorgeous Gloster IV
  15. I really hope this is the start of a series of Schneider cup racers. Please consider options for the earlier S.6 and S.6A variants! But I'd dearly love to see the S4 and S5 in 1/72.
