    I need a new car. Recommendations please!

    Thanks for the advice. I vaguely had a C class Merc in mind before so those suggestions help. A neighbour has a Volvo V40 and I always liked the look of it but when I was car hunting last time I could only find white ones and I really didn't fancy that. However, I've since realised that they have manual handbrakes and electric ones are much better for a bad back than I thought they would be! Funnily enough, I've always fancied one of those but hadn't realised the prices had dropped that much. There's a fairly expensive design fault on them as well (which I can't remember), however, most cars have one e.g. the 6 speed gearbox on the earlier Insignias, clutch on the Rover 75's and so on.

    What are you reading?

    Just finished the latest JK Rowling / Robert Galbraith book Lethal White; 4th book in the Cormoran Strike series. It's OK I guess but it would help if the editor could actually read English as there are some seriously bad errors along the way. Edit: whoever gave JK a dictionary for Christmas needs to be shot.

    Any British Modelers here? Advice about Telford

    They think it's the 70's and there's some minstrels in the next field?

    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    This week's very small haul: A 3m airbrush hose An airbrush cleaning pot Some No.15 Swann Morton blades.
  5. Be very, very careful buying through AliExpress. It's a well know channel for counterfeit goods.

    Your artillery gun is the M109; probably the Italeri kit built as an E4 variant. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/italeri-246-m-109-self-propelled-gun-e4-g-a1-a2--141754

    Airfix FW190A Quickie

    They are fantastic pieces of kit but I just don't understand (apart from sheer greed) why they are so expensive! Anyways... That's a lovely build you've done there and a great paint job.

    The Real Color Debacle

    Do you work for eBay customer services by any chance? If you'd have bothered to read the many other posts where he said AK had told him it would be OK and then they completely ignored him (including deleting the YouTube video and the associated comments where they stated this) then you might not come across so poorly.
