    Spitfire Mk Va

    I wondered about that too, and found this on the Airfix site:

    Battle of Britain Model squadron - RC

    Without wishing to trivialise the actuality of what happened to real people in the BoB, this does look like it is tremendous fun... I really, really want an RC Spit and cockpit view goggles and a few mates who have similar kit to play with!

    HMS Queen Elizabeth/Big Lizzie

    Sailors getting tanked up on shore leave? Tanked up sailors getting into a ruck? Who'd have imagined such a thing? Must be a slow news weekend if they have to report on traditional leisure activities...
  4. I was tempted by the Atlas V and launch gantry, but I think I'd need to be Oogway from Kung Fu Panda to be able to get into the correct mindset for that! I've got a Darth Vader TIE fighter to do, and my eldest daughter (16) is into Marvel stuff so I got her Captain America's shield and Mjölnir to build, in attempt to distract her from her phone for a few hours. Somehow, I think I might be on a loser with that plan... Although, the sense of achievement when you finish one of these things is not inconsiderable!
  5. Ooh, Sulaco and Hunter Killer!

    MiG Alley

    Love that diorama, it's so kinetic and evocative, you can just imagine a split second later when the ejector seat pops out, very cool indeed.

    World war two, movies and tv-series...

    Is anyone watching Battle of Britain: Model Squadron on C4? Top German and British RC model flyers re-enact pivotal dogfights from the BoB...
  8. I bought a few of these tiny kits on a whim a couple of weeks back, and this is the first one I have ever assembled. I reckon this kit scales to about 1/1375? You really do have to be able to achieve a Zen state for these, they're sooooo fiddly... Sorry about the 'phone pics. This is how it comes, on 2 "sprues" Chu' So'wl' One wing about 3/4 done... Getting there... Underside detail Finished! I'll admit that this thing was nearly launched at warp factor 9 bin-wards on more than one occasion, but I'm glad I stuck with it!
  9. Nice repaint, I'd buy that for a Dollar!!!
  10. Does it have a Han in a slab?

    Thanks Roy, no problem with the watch pic, unless it's cluttering up the thread.

    Let's try again, there was a padlock icon on the thumbnail, so I messed about with my privacy settings... Woo hoo!
