  1. What a cracking job you have made of this famous Fortress Eric and your collection is lovely,...... they all look superb and the attention to detail is simply brilliant, Cheers Tony
  2. A great job on an iconic aeroplane indeed,....... I wanted to grad one of these myself but I missed out,...... and all of that rigging would have scared the hell out of me anyway!! I love the base and also the comparison with the nice little Bristol Scout,...... superb job,....... as Robin says,..... you`ll have to have a go at rigging them,...... they will look even better!
  3. Very nice,..... I had a feeling that you just might go for the RNAS option,.......
  4. Excellent job mate and I second your comment re Danish women,...... I thought exactly the same when I was there with the Army,...... then I went to Sweden for the day,..... WOW! There are some VERY lucky lads living in Scandanavia!! They are very patriotic too,.... which was nice to see. Love the Merlin, Cheers Tony
  5. Cheers Colin,........ 1/72nd?........ really??........ well that is nice of you, thanks. I have built one of the 1/72nd vacuforms and have another to build,........ the first was OK for its day for me,........ I`ll have to get around to building the second,....... but remember to put in a wing spar as the first one is very,...... well,...... floppy!! I never got to see an operational Hastings unfortunately,..... but have met plenty of people who operated,..... and operated from,.... them. Thanks Keith,..... good luck with your 1/72nd kit,..... I think the plastic on mine may have gone a bit fragile,........ I hope yours is better.
  6. Very nice indeed,...... we had one go over the house pretty low a few nights ago,...... very distinctive noise,..... I`ve yet to see one yet!
  7. Thought so mate,..... cheers for confirming it. A nice whiffer with a yellow or white outlined code on the fin maybe?
  8. Just found this beauty Vincent,...... WOW,...... you have done a fantastic job,...... I love the added details and the interior!
  9. Thanks Mark,...... I was hoping against hope that Airfix might announce one this time,....... or a Beverley,...... but it wasn`t to be sadly!! Great memories from Abingdon back then eh,...... I was just too young and lived in the wrong part of the country anyway!
  10. Thanks Ray,...... and I did the same re ordering the kit!! I never got to see one fly, but I love RAF transports from those days and I bet Singapore was a very different,....... and dare I say fantastic place back then?
  11. Excellent Roman,..... and I love the scheme,...... both models are lovely mate.
  12. Thanks mate,...... and nice one,..... oh I do hope that you sent them some photos of the Coastal Command ones too,..... especially the ones with the red titles on the white cabin roof! A couple of nic e Suez aircraft too,..... maybe get them to change their blue? Thanks mate,..... yes I was impressed by those leading edge decals too and spot on,..... a bigger Valetta,.... but without the step in the cargo bay! Bugger to get over carrying a 100lb Bergan and a parachute I`ve been told. Thanks Steve,..... just imagine a RNZAF one in your collection!!! Thanks John,..... yeah nice big tail dragger,..... yummy!! Thanks Vincent,...... I built the Welsh Models kit ages ago when I first got into vacuforms,....... it was a nice kit,...... but this is very nice indeed. Yeah loads of schemes and I did wonder what it might have looked like in the Dark Earth/ Light Stone scheme,..... a definite whiffer! Thanks Keith,..... it is well up their with my favourites too mate,..... yeah Iwould grab one soon,..... the Beverleys and Argosies seem to be riing rapidly in price? Thanks Djordje,..... glad you like it mate. Thanks mate.
  13. LOL,... Hiya Dave,.... looks like we both jumped in here at the same time!!
