    Typhoon tranche differences wanted

    Chris, you could you you say that Typhoon tranche is the equivalent to F-16 blocks' Steve.
  2. Hi folks, is there somewhere that lists the tranche differences for the Typhoon if I wanted to modify the 1/32 Revell kit (twinseater) Steve.

    If not Modelling.. Then What?

    Sharpening my psychotic thoughts and adding to the ever increasing kill list when the civil war starts, if the big wave one day doesn't come. alternatively I seem to have become a gardener, I haven't got the foggiest what things are called but people seem to comment on what a fantastic garden we have, I'm also very lucky it's big enough to loose myself whilst something is drying or pretending I can't hear my wife calling. I think I may be turning into my Dad. Steve.

    Modelling on back burner

    Wow tuff times years ago we wouldn't have talked about it but it's a good thing and a bit of release for you. I watched a programme called 24hrs in A&E and an elderly gentleman went in for an operation and didn't make it. The piece to camera was by one of his sons who said he'd written a letter to his dad saying thanks for the childhood etc, this knocked me for six and I thought it was a brilliant idea. I was inspired to write to my mum & dad (now in their late 70's) and wrote on decent paper with a proper ink pen. I actually got carried away and completed several pages probably saying more than what I would have done so in a conversation. It had my dad in tears and subsequently he wrote back at Christmas about his life and I thought I knew my parents but the letter revealed so much more, I still have it now. Do something similar if you think it's appropriate and if your reading this post don't start that next kit do it, it's very humbling. Steve.

    IPMS Salisbury Model Show 2018

    I got there about 9.20 and the car parking was nearly full. I thought it was well attended and I had a wallet full of cash but didn't spend anything other than entrance fee. I thought some of the prices of kits (1/32) was top draw asking prices so I didn't purchase them, so turned my attention to the club displays, some fantastic builds out there, the 1/24 Typhoon with spinning prop, the weathered 1/32 F4 Marines model and the excellent displays on the Salisbury table itself, plus others........ The only downside for me was leaving when somebody in a burgundy Audi A4 parked in front of me and must have been 2 inches from my front bumper, luckily one of the marshals guided me out. Steve.
  10. Yes Boman great photo and those bombs. Steve.
  11. Hi folks, im typing on the iPad and don't know how to copy a photo to BM. Anyway I'm looking to identify the bombs carried by an early Tornado at Farnborough when it was painted in the green/grey with LAG undersides. The bombs are black with red noses & tails but the look quite svelte to be 1000lb'ers. Has anybody got any concrete info on what they are, Selwyn, your on........... Steve.
  12. I saw a couple for sale today at the Salisbury show and I had a peek in the box, I was surprised on how big the wing span was for a 1/48 kit, it's actually a decent size although I didn't buy one. Steve
