  1. Completely agree with everything! ' A bit of a challenge' is an understatement as I also gave up and have one of these partly built and set aside as 350-odd parts is just too over-engineered with an interior that can't be seen anyway. If Revell want to put that much effort into the interior detail, then why not give us an alternative clear transparent port side fuselage half, so it can be seen?
  2. Okay well yes, but that would be a start and Micromir would need a bit of encouragement! Also they are supposed to be working on a 1/144th Hastings, which would certainly float my boat as an acceptable size.
  3. Jees...I thought I would follow this thread but I'm losing the will to live!. 41 Pages with many irrelevant posts and still this Lebanese SM79 has made little progress in the best part of a year! How long will it take?
  4. An early Aifix F-1A and T4/5 two-seater resin conversion set + Aeroclub accessories currently on E. Bay .
  5. A 1/72 VC10 would be just too big for me! I have already run out of cabinet space and just pointless putting it in the attic,built or unbuilt. Currently having a cull on my stash. An Andover would be an acceptable size though, with alternative fuselage rears for a HS748?
  6. Have built a few of these over the years and the kit still looks good after all this time, Nice job!
  7. I have Kodachrome slides of the 1 Squadron Hunters taken at West Raynham in 1968 and they are all HSS underneath and the top camo is in GLOSS finish.
  8. Very good. As a wee small lad, I remember the Fairey Ultra LIght chasing that lorry down the runway at the Farnborough show in 1959 and landing on it. I think it was supposed to simulate a ship's landing pad when they were trying to sell it to the Royal Navy.
  9. Very nice! Now where do you put it? It's a big model!
  10. Superb! Did the two AVRO 504s fly together?
  11. I have just acquired the Kiwi version, but am not interested in the decals as mine will be finished with the Air Decal sheet as the King's Flight Fox Moth, G-ACDD. It doesn't matter which boxing you get, as all versions are covered on a standard sprue. It is going together very nicely. The scribing on the wings makes me think it's almost a copy of the FROG DH60 Gipsy Moth's wings?
  12. Magna Models make (made?) a resin kit in 1/72. I was sorely tempted at the time, but thought 'where would I put it'?

    Comet C4

    Yes, the Comet C.4 was the RAF designation for the Mk.4C.
  14. I recall as a kid that Sugar Puffs also had a series of small airliner kits in the early 60s - I recall a Comet, Boeing 707 and DC-8 at least. Does anyone remember these? Re the Kelloggs Corn Flakes airliner kits, the Viscount and Viking are close to 1/400 scale and I have built a few as they fit in with my 1/400 diecast airliner collection, although the Viscount fuselage looks a bit long.
