  1. Fortunately it’s an easy fix. Connecting/disconnecting the real things were a bit of a faff but was a source of mirth when you got the fattest rigger on the team to do it.
  2. I must be in a tiny minority, I think the QE, F-35 and the Merlin look rather smart.
  3. If Zvezda really are to produce a modern standard 1/72 Hercules then I am sure they will shift truckloads - a late 70’s early 80’s RAF version would top my list.
  4. Just a small point Andy. The instructions have you install the main landing gear D doors open as you have done, but on the real thing these doors are only open during gear extension and retraction. The only time they are open on the ground is for maintenance when they are physically disconnected from the actuator. She’s looking very smart now with the decals on.
  5. That’s not a forehead, it’s a fivehead! I had a look at one of these at model club last night and was surprised at how crude a short run kit actually is with lots of flash on the sprues, the surface detail looked okay if a little soft. It’s definitely not a kit that my skills could cope with.
  6. Preiser do a set in 1/72 & 1/48 that can be made to look quite convincing - they are rather pricey though. http://www.gaugemaster.com/item_details.asp?code=PR72409
  7. Christmas 2020 - Airfix are targeting a November 2020 release.
  8. If I recall correctly it was something like 6 million candle power. A myth going round the Nimrod world was a searchlight being struck while in a hangar that burned a hole in the hangar door! But I’m not convinced.
  9. I received my Airfix 2020 calendar today with the latest Airfix model world magazine with some new box art style pictures. A Javelin FAW9/9R, Phantom FG1 in Black Mike markings and B-25B launching from a carrier are some that are new to me at least.
  10. The side console decals are very basic but will do if the canopy will be closed. I would recommend waiting for the inevitable Eduard etch set or resin if you want super detail.
