  1. The irony being the MiGs were not bare metal but aluminium power suspended in clear lacquer.
  2. BAE Systems Hawk 100 Series 1:72 Airfix The Hawk 100 is the next generation Hawk following on from the original Hawker Siddeley Hawk. The new hawk has more advanced avionics, the provisions for more weapons, all contained in a redesigned fuselage with a new wing. The Hawk 115 (CT-155) was ordered by the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Hawk 127 by the Royal Australian Air Force, and the Hawk 128 (or T.2) by the Royal Air Force. The Kit This is a re-issue of Airfix's 2008 new tool with extra parts to reflect the Hawk 100. The kit
  3. Interesting article https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/extra/jDOe2y9Tbo/boeing-737-max?fbclid=IwAR1dUOr-wthWDUChw5AuNwtktk4KHRDoqtE63_anHy8eoo2Y-_mGy6igltI
  4. 2021 is looking busy but Im sure I can do this one Julien
  5. Im sure I can be tempted. I still have this one to build at some point
  6. Sounds like a true gent. Every toy store probably had someone like him back in the day. Sadly missed from todays retail world in most places. I recall living in Hong Kong (My dad was in the Army there) the local hobby shop sold mainly kits from Japan and was the size of a small bedroom but packed high with stuff. The elderly Chinese gent who ran it spoke virtually no English but would always take time to point out new stuff, let you look in the boxes etc, and point out the slightly older kits which were more in budget.
  7. TBH I dont think they need to, so from their point of view why do it
  8. Italy & Greece were places I would never ship to due to the unreliable postal service there. That being said I recently ordered a couple of items from Italy with no problems. RM is still your best bet a couriers are more expensive
  9. The only thing you could use those Matra pods for is displaying in front of the aircraft.
  10. Supermarine Sea Otter Mk.I "WWII Service" 1:72 Special Hobby (72429) The Se Otter was developed by Supermarine from its famous predecessor the Walrus. As a longer range Sea Plane the main difference is the arrangement of the engine from the pusher as seen on the Walrus to the more conventional puller. The Sea Otter was the last Sea Plane to be designed by Supermarine, and the last biplane to enter service with the RAF & FAA. Despite the prototype flying in 1938 it was not ordered until 1942 with only 292 of the nearly 700 ordered being produced before the end
  11. Mirage III EA/EBR (72063) 1:72 ModelSvit Sacré bleu! If you have not heard of the Mirage III where have you been? The Mirage III is one of the most recognisable aircraft to emerge from the Dassault Aviation stable in post war France. The Mirage III grew out of French government studies for a light weight all weather interceptor able to reach 18,000 meter in altitude in Six minutes and able to reach mach 1.3 in level flight.
