  1. Fantastic find, Mark, thanks for sharing. I trust you are well? Nick
  2. That’s fabulous. Otaki is responsible for my love of 1/48. Found the Spitfire in a department store back in 1970 I think it was. It seemed the perfect combination of 1/72 Airfix and 1/32 Revell that I was used to then. I was amazed by the sharpness of the moulding but unaware / ignorant of gullwings and fabric ailerons . . .

  3. And I’ve learnt something today as well.
  4. It's gorn! Disappeared . . . There used to be a tab at the top giving a list of all members in alphabetical order but I can't see where it is now. Sorry, my mistake!
  5. Welcome aboard. Not a waterborne craft modeller myself; there are some very clever modellers here who will have plenty of advice and knowledge between them to help you on your journey. Nick
  6. From another Britmodeller? You’ll see an ‘envelope’ icon top right. Clicking on that will take you to your ‘in box’ where you can read and reply to messages. If you want to initiate a conversation (or send a PM) just click on that person’s name or avatar. Or look in the list of members. Nick
  7. Hi y'all

    Inquiry about purchase of 1/48 Airfix Merlin w-windshield repair


  8. And you have to see Cosford museum just down the road from Telford.
  9. I didn't have any problems with HGW positive rivets when I used them on my Airfix 1/48 new tool Hurricane. They are difficult to see in certain conditions but then so are the real things. Catch the light correctly and they look good to me. I also believe that a polish to thin the top coat allows some of the silver to show through the paint. Nick
  10. Nice idea! I picked up my third Tamiya 1/48 armour kit for the year, the M20, from Parabellum at the IPMS Avon show last weekend. And did I mention that I got the Fighting 48th! Crab conversion a few weeks back?? Nick
  11. No idea why it isn't around and I've been looking for a while. Scored one for a tenner at the Avon show over the weekend though!
