  1. When I saw it lined up all those years ago, I woukd swear it was original. The faded sand had tank grey showing through in places. Plus official photos of 131 on trials in the UK clearly showed one overall colour, I have no idea where the multi-colur schemes ever came into it. One pic shot in Tunisia clearly shows a Tiger in overall green.
  2. Very nice model indeed! The North Africa colours will forever remain controversial....pictures taken of 131 on test trials after capture only show it painted in one overall sand colour, and when I saw it at Bovington over 45 years ago in its original paint job, it was overall sand worn in areas with dark grey showing through. The 'Olive' colour finish on some Tigers of Pzbt 504 was supposedly Italian Pea Green.....
  3. Looks good! Perhaps they'll do a 1/16 Shot Cal at somepoint
  4. On a kit of this size, couldn't Trumpeter even get the bow shape right???
  5. The New turret is now available on pre-order from MigAmmo
  6. Glad the pilot is safe, and that they recover the wreckage ASAP. We need to know what happened here......
  7. Sea Dart was originally conceived to engage high flying aircraft, primarily Bombers and recon planes. Not low flying aircraft travelling at speed, and certainly not cruise missiles. However, the whole system including the radar underwent a substantial upgrade that made it much more useful....
  8. Yes they did...... must admit I hadn't noticed the Syrian Tanks were Tirans....
  9. New Takom kit no #5015 - 'A' Turret USS Missouri - WW2 config. Pity its not 'B' or 'C' with 40mm gun tubs.
  10. I believe Dark Admiralty Grey is the correct colour, but they vary! A friend of mine who worked on 4 x GR4s in storage at St Athan said all 4 had different colour cockpits.....
  11. I have the 11c in my stash, so very interested to see how it builds...
  12. A good way to see what's out there is to go onto Ebay, type in Tamiya 1/16 Jagdpanther then enter. If there is aftermarket out there, invariably at least some comes up. I see a Vogager etched set and some Aber stuff
  13. Possibly, but we had 3 x MC130s in the area heading in the opposite direction towards their usual low level training haunts in the Moors. This aircraft was on its own and came up as AC130. This was shortly after Biden had departed....
  14. I must admit I'm really keen to see how this stacks up against the AFV club kit. I intend to grab a shot cal for Xmas, I've always really liked and admired IDF Centurions, and fancy the AFV club 1973 shot cal or the amusing hobby.....
  15. That's looking really good for an old and venerable kit!
  16. A US Flat top? I was surprised the other evening when checking Donny Radar to see what was flying over North Yorkshire to find an AC130J heading south amongst the usual military air traffic. Had it been part of a protection force guarding the VIPs in Glasgow?
  17. Was a bit surprised to find there was a USAF AC130J flying in the York Area last night. Not sure if it was exercising with MC130J out of Mildenhall....
  18. That's a really nice model!! Towards the end of 1944 through to 45 who knows what colours Panthers really appeared in? Yours look really convincing!! Superb job!!
  19. Really exceptional models! Thanks for posting your pics of these.
  20. Panel line accent? What is that? A wash? Not come across it before?
  21. Found it on 4more. Looks good!
