  1. Cheers Bruce,...... and wow,...... I`d forgotten just how good that model of yours was,..... that scheme is a beaut mate!! The 1/48th kit is different in a lot of ways,..... I can just see the kink in the cockpit side window on yours but it doesn`t look half as pronounced as the one in the 1/72nd kit looks to my eye,.... so maybe I`m over critical and I may get away with it after all. All the best buddy and cheers again, Tony
  2. That is a beaut Calum,..... and a wonderful tribute to two brave men, Cheers, Tony
  3. I was building the Hobbyboss 1/72nd scale `version' of this kit,...... I found the cockpit side windows to be totally the wrong shape and the engine nacelles very short,.....almost like they were covering single row Cyclone engines rather than Twin Wasps,...... it was bad enough for me to put the semi completed kit back in the box,.... is the 1/48th scale kit OK in these areas mate? Cheers Tony
  4. Thanks so much for this insight,....... I`m gob smacked!! No wonder the Fleet Air Arm is nothing but a helicopter force relying on the RAF to provide fixed wing aircraft for its carrier/s now,....... with people like that in charge. Their Airships who conducted the hostile takeover under Joint Force Harrier must have been sniggering into their gin and tonics back in the ante room! Cheers Tony
  5. I`d love Revell to do a C-130 Hercules to the same level as their Grizzly and Transall!
  6. Is it just me who thinks that they have missed a trick by not having 208 Sqn as the OCU rather than 207? Naval Eight was possibly the most famous RNAS unit of WW1 and since then as 208 Sqn has carved an impressive history right into the fast jet era. I hate this business speak that senior officers use these days,....... surely the lightning flash is a 617 Sqn emblem,...... not Lightning Force Branding?? Cheers Tony
  7. Seeing as the UK build the back end of every F-35,....... it would be nice if Mr. Trump & Boris could see their way to re directing the Turkish maintenance contract to the UK now!
  8. It is my feeling too,..... especially when it come to Tactical Airlift,.....paratrooping etc that we need another squadron`s worth of Herk`s,........ at the moment 16 Air Assault Bde is limited to parachuting a company strength unit at best,..., and that is if 47 Sqn can spare one of their overworked Herk`s. Cheers Tony
  9. That is good to hear,...... I thought that the main problem was the turbulent slipstream caused by the huge propellers which turn in different directions,........ especially when it comes to Sym. Sticks from both doors and blokes meeting and crossing over behind the aircraft. Cheers Tony
  10. You`ve done a lovely job on this scumbag`s aircraft! I read that he was also responsible for the death of fellow Czech`s after he returned back to the German`s too. I wasn`t aware that he had married a Mackem though!! Cheers Tony PS,....Ignore the stupid headline and the fact that it is from the Guardian,..... this article includes a few more details; https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2003/jun/15/paulharris.theobserver
  11. You`ve done a gorgeous job on this SHAR mate,........ fantastic model, Cheers Tony
  12. Gorgeous job Russ,....... I have this one planned in 1/72nd! Cheers Tony
  13. Looking brilliant this Martian,........ cannot wait to see what scheme you choose! Cheers Tony
  14. Very nice,.... it looks natty in those markings! Cheers Tony
  15. They both look wonderful mate! Cheers Tony
