  1. Blimey! I did exactly the same thing, and painted it with some Woolworths gloss paint my dad had in his shed. I bought it from Lewis's department store in Leicester in 1967(ish) for 1/9d. Then I discovered my local newsagents (Nutalls) stocked Airfix and my second purchase was a Tiger tank which I was shocked to discover has risen in price to 2/3d. I also read the intructions properly this time, and the decals were correctly applied. The price rise didn't put me off though, Woolworths was religously visited every Saturday morning to dispose of my pocket money. Still building them apart from the usual discovery of 'Wine, Women & Song' phase. Regards Rob i
  2. MikroMir may be your best option, they have a 'presence' on this site in the 'Shops, manufacturers & vendors' section. You could always try Mel at S&M models as he was intrumental in producing this current attempt for a 1/72 Canberra. Regards
  3. On the plus side, the boxing now contains more correct main wheels and the revised wing tip tanks. If the boxing does not contain the sprue with the engine intakes to accomodate the revised wing moulding, then that's just not acceptable. (taken from the Hannants website for Mikro-Mir T17) Have you tried contacting the manufacturer, or return the kit for a refund, as it's not 'fit for purpose'? Regards
  4. Would the 'Flightpath example be more appropriate? https://www.djparkins.com/product.php?productid=17744&cat=253&page=1 Regards
  5. I suppose Hannants could have purchased any stock that RAM models held, just like they did when 'Model Alliance' folded. Just a thought. regards
  6. Hi, Mel's eBay seller's id is 'mel_mbr_jhvu5pk'. https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/mel_mbr_jhvu5pk He also emailed me yesterday to say the shipping calculator problem has been fixed on his website. Regards Rob
  7. Hi, I'd already had an email chat with Mel regarding the ordering problem. The B6 will be available via his eBay account sometime next week, so i'll probably go down that route. Regards Rob
  8. The B6 is now available to order(!). http://sandmmodels.co.uk/product/british-canberra-b6-new-tool/ Just tried to place an order but the shipping calculator is not working. regards Rob
  9. Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Micro-Mir-72-013-English-Electric-Canberra-T-Mk-17-Scale-Plastic-Model-Kit-1-72/113348201773?hash=item1a64144d2d:g:j2wAAOSw-nRb3Xu6:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true Will wait for Hannants to pick some stock up.

    RAF Tornado GR1T

    WV908, Thank for taking the time, very useful. Progress is slow on the build ( too many fingers in too many pies!) As i'm trying to reduce the loft stash, i've grafted the front and rear end of an Italeri GR1 on to an Airfix GR1 centre fuselage (ala Airwork Ltd F3 debacle!!). I've also sourced a few decal sheets, so it will get finished sometime. Rob

    Hello, I made some for my BBMF Chipmunk (Silver/Dayglo scheme), and Arial Bold looked ok. regards Rob

    1/72 Harrier GR5

    Modeldecal set 100 has some 1/72 GR5 options and is available at Hannants. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MD100 Isn't the Revell 1/48th Harrier just a reboxed Hasegawa? Rob

  15. The reissued Typhoon kits (03952 & 03900) both have the same set of sprues in the box. The 'RAF' version has a lower parts count, as being a display aircraft, only the fuselage centre pylon is used for the fuel tank. Rob
