    Serious question

    My niece married a fellow named Wolfe. On our Christmas Eve celebration we were waithing for them plus their child and the question came up: are the Wolfes on the way or are the Wolves on their way? If their surname happened to be Goose would the Gooses or Geese be on the way?

    Hornby Group (airfix's owners) half-yearly results

    Just a quick observation from across the pond here. My local Hobby Lobby (a chain crafts/sewing/home decor store) has more Airfix kits on the shelves than I have ever seen in one place in the flesh. Apparently the Airfix folks are indeed pushing into the US market. Hobby Lobby offers a 40% discount which means my P51 and P40 were both bought for well under $20. That puts Airfix kits in the hands of the masses. Both of the kits are well molded, and have first class packaging and instructions. Just from watching the stock these kits are in fact moving. Cheers to Airfix for building a foundation! (I need also to point out that prior to these kits hitting our shelves Airfix kits were not widely available in our admittedly meager collection of hobby shops. The several 1/48 and 1/72 kits plus the 1/76 battle diorama sets that are no doubt compelling to those used to Revell US stock only.)

    KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    How about some 1/48 IJN IJAAF bombers to compliment the Ki-48? I’d love to see a G3M “Nell” or a Ki-67 “Peggy”. A Yokosuka E14Y Glen might be nice too...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    And a Sherry after dinner sounds perfect too.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Now that sounds good! TBH we sometimes overdo it and wind up in a vortex of gluttony that pulls everyone into a state if mutually assured misery. Add to that every family has someone who wants to add something exotic to the mix....

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow American Britmodelers! And a happy Thanksgiving to all you other ungrateful heathen!

    My Next Build

    I’m thinking you should hang around in the armor section they (we) use a ton of filter techniques that would really work well. Basically hit it with very thinned paint to give everything a washed out look.

    My Next Build

    You know building it up and weathering it just like the one on display would be interesting

    Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk Vb

    Heaps of styrene shavings... every type of clamp known to man... brassy bits... and she’s one of the prettiest girls to take to the sky.... I’d say we have a stunner in the works!

    No Guns,Just God's Glory

    Very compelling diorama. It’s sobering to think how many men of the cloth paid the ultimate price on both sides.

    Spot of the Day Part 2

    I definitely admire his commitment to it. As parts have rotted away he’s fabricated his own. Keep in mind this thing is road legal!

    Ki-45 Toyru “Nick”

    Thank you Greg! I’m going with a dark grey for the panel washes. Weathering is going to be minimal on it too.
