  1. I’ve put my wife’s details in. See how long she can hold her breath for whilst landing in the sea
  2. My old WO was an ex-operator and a lad from my work went for it and passed. Turned up one day day tooled up and big hair. He was a ginge so probably made him stand out even more. My biggest regret of my service career was not applying for it to see if I’d got what it takes. Hey Ho.
  3. Thanks everyone for the resurrection. Tony I thought so even painted on lamb chops and a gringo
  4. Tremendous and looks every bit a Cosworth. I’m of an age where these were the racer of the day, and if you’ve ever been lucky enough to see and hear them in anger……..
  5. Years ago my CEO was collecting wooden floor panels in her SAAB cabrio. Yep you guessed it she had a moment as put the roof up = straight through it. I made sure I got mileage out of that one.
  6. I used to have both of these kits but my skills aren’t good enough for cars, so I sold them on and brought a big diecast car in the Texaco livery. Think I’ve been lucky as the price has gone up over the years. I had a cossie back in the day and religiously followed touring cars when these were competing. Still got all the dvds and good times of racing.
  7. So your going to buy one then. Your kidding yourself and the inner you has already made your mind up, probably like the rest of us.
  8. Hi folks just scanning the TV guide and noticed this. Smithsonian channel (ch276 Virgin) at 8pm. Never know might be alright, says it’s a first aired today program.
  9. Come on get back on it. It’s because of this build that I was inspired to do my Puma which I recently finished. Couldn’t do a Chinney as that’s blatant copying
  10. I put a strip of cleat stretched sprue just aft of the bomb bay on mine and it’s also not immediately obvious at first glance.
  11. What a great model that is. I really wish they’d do those Sqn decals in 1/32.
  12. Great model there mate and it’s different to the red/white ones your going to see.
  13. Finished the build and now placed in the RFI.
  14. Hi all. This I purchased this kit a couple of years ago at Telford when I had an idea of building a NI fit cab. As usual with my builds I build memories, having done 3 tours in Ulster starting in the 80’s these along with the Wessex are pinned in my memory. Moving on I wanted the boxing that had the PIP filters and the tiger meet boxing it was. The kit itself was obviously a design of the day so moaning is fruitless although the quality of the clear part is shocking and I feel I definitely got the Friday version. I wanted to add a bit of detail to the kit as I think for the pose I had in mind, too much would be on show. My original idea was a flyer with the 3 undercarriage legs lowered, a gun mounted and a Santa Clause in the other door. Alas I couldn’t find a suitable candidate so another option was chosen. Plan B was a 14 Int photographer hanging in the door way and I found a 3D printed figure on the bay in 1/32 scale. So the build pressed on and through research and advice from guys on here and on PPrune I modelled this cab of 1563 Flt which was part of 33 Sqn from Oct 94 and just prior to the application of the 2 tone green. The MRB are actually straight as the look slightly drooped in these photos. The whole disc is removable but the kit is mounted on the pole. The nose antenna were replaced with 0.28mm rod and looks quite well in this scale. Anyway I’m rubbish at photography but I took advantage of today’s sunshine and here we go. Build log is here 869E6AB0-A3D5-4738-8816-7ECCFAA46188 F74CCD14-2E19-46C9-9B44-4C515994B3F0 BF416798-7E39-4113-A388-F43D837EC97C 51852B87-275F-4B27-AC04-ED865CCE3436 7BD2D1F6-4D07-4739-8190-DF9332194839 B8AB78AB-D2FA-445A-9EAE-428FF4C9E3FE 5ECB3F9C-CF20-484D-A09A-6DF948084B91 4578ABA0-39B6-4EEA-8EA2-0E5C01394CA8 B907009A-F66D-4C72-A1D4-A9E64DEED7E3 6FFBCCD2-2008-49ED-88D1-B3D33AF877F2 6586A696-8DB6-47DE-9D88-7C2307470AF5 45E17CA2-DDD1-44D8-8309-6000ABB4C7D5 23B776BC-29C3-4A6B-9818-750FEE686E79 AA6E6796-6082-41E1-B64D-546DD06AF658 8397A977-8C37-4E69-A794-4874792698B3 5ECB3F9C-CF20-484D-A09A-6DF948084B91 My thanks go to Pete in Lins, Jabba, Rickoshea52, Benbow, tarlucan, Sammy da fish. I’m sorry if I’ve missed you out but it’s been a great example of everyone chipping in. I’m calling this one done and I’ll have a break before starting the next project. Thanks for watching, Steve.
  15. With the Cossie, you could leave it on its roof and make a Dio. I suppose that’s where most ended up. I crashed mine, still mentally wear a black arm band some 20 years later
  16. Well back off our hols and these have arrived. 6mm for the mount, 1mm for the MRBs’ & 0.28mm for the nose antenna. Hopefully get bench time this weekend. 463E8FD9-CE37-40DF-AD62-DBA2ECD1C07A
  17. I managed to acquire a 1/32 Fisher Sea Fury T20. I’m very chuffed as I wanted one for ages, so plans for this already.
  18. Yes. Knowing you it will be built in a week and look tremendous. I’ve given up already
