  1. Werrs it to? On the eponymous Farcebook page of said Somerset town, "Langport - where it's to!" Cheers, Mark (Somerset lad exiled to Derbyshire!)
  2. Thanks, Tweener, the majority of Portuguese Moranes were indeed the MS.223 type with Gnome-Rhone 5Ba or 5Bc 5-cylinder engines. Six were built in France and 16 in Portugal. However, there was also one MS.230 with 9-cylinder Salmson 9AB engine and this is my subject, largely because it looks nicer! Cheers, Mark
  3. Thanks, Craig, that's hugely appreciated! Everything will be alright in the end, and if everything isn't alright then its not yet the end! Cheers, Mark
  4. Thanks for the extra information, that's really encouraging and good to know. Cheers, Mark
  5. Excellent! Welcome along! Cheers, Mark
  6. Hi Jack, Many thanks for this! I was thinking I would email Karaya and enquire whether the Jaguar engine could be bought separately. It sounds as if some of their engines have been available as AM parts. Given the Jaguar's widespread use, I would have thought it would be commercially viable as an AM part. Cheers, Mark
  7. Great work, Adrian, the camo' looks fabulous! Is that an experimental rudder? Cheers, Mark
  8. Hi chaps, many, many thanks for your replies, that's really good news that Karaya are still in business! Apart from the Flycatcher, I'd also like their Ansaldo Balilla (among others!). Great to know that they are very good kits, accurate and well-detailed, thanks, Paul. Also for the info on the instructions and struts! Thanks for the links to stockists, too! Interesting to know that some of Karaya's engines are/have been available separately. All very much appreciated, guys, thanks you! Cheers, Mark
  9. Hi @Steben, @Rafwaffe, @Paul Bradley, @Evil_Toast_RSA, welcome along, folks, glad to have you on board with this GB! Apologies for not having added your tags sooner, but I've been having a few issues with my internet connection. Steben: I do like the Renard R.36, and I think the khaki extended down the fuselage sides looks better. Hope we get through the Bunfight, as I'm looking forward to this one! Cheers, Mark
  10. Hi @Steben, thanks for those great colour samples - they give a great insight and reference into the Belgian khaki colour. Brilliant, thank you! Cheers, Mark
  11. Dear All, Has anyone on the forum built one of Karaya's 1/72 scale Fairey Flycatchers? I've done the usual searches but nothing seems to come to light in this scale. I'm wondering how good/detailed the kit is generally, and in particular the AS Jaguar engine? Also, is Karaya still in business? Thanks in advance! Cheers, Mark
  12. I've had my eye on those, it would be great to see one being built! Cheers, Mark
  13. Ah, that explains it! Likewise, then, I'll be waiting..... Cheers, Mark
  14. Still? Well that's a blow Looks like I won't be ordering direct, then! Cheers, Mark
  15. Beautiful work, Adrian, really inspiring! The finish is superb and you've captured the French camouflage perfectly. Excellent! Cheers, Mark
  16. Excellent! Is that the FSC Dujin kit? Cheers, Mark
  17. Hopefully I'll get this one finished! As for online purchases, well.....I keep checking back with Arma's website! Cheers, Mark
  18. Excellent point! That settles it, then Cheers, Mark
  19. Do they? I didn't know that.....yes, very tempting!!! Google search!!! I've also got their ML-KNIL Hurricane and Hawk decal sets, and I also managed to pick up a Dutch Decals set as well! Cheers, Mark
  20. Its absolutely worth every penny! Its a superb reference, and I for one have high hopes of ML-KNIL Hawk 75, Buffalo and Martin 139 as well as the Hurricane, of course. If I could find a Curtiss Falcon that, too, would be on the list! Cheers, Mark
  21. Thanks, Chris! Here's hoping to see it through to the end this time Cheers, Mark
  22. Hi Robert, It may be stretching the premise a little, but I don't see why not. Welcome aboard! Cheers, Mark Welcome along! You can't go wrong with a Viggen! Cheers, Mark
