  1. Oh, no idea. I’ve recently just gone through the process (UK) and it was fine. Drop them a line on the contract us or speak with a human, unless you’re happy with what you managed to do. There is a 16 part tuition video and I’m on #9. It’s not that daunting as some are only 6 mins. I’ve got it somewhere I’ll drop you a link.
  2. Here you go https://www.autodesk.co.uk/products/fusion-360/personal
  3. Bootneck linked me and I’m one #1 of those tuition videos. I’ll have a 1/32 Jag by the end of the week…..
  4. Wow maintrack, that’s a blast from the past. I was rummaging through my childhood bit box and found a C scale Tornado ADV conversion!.
  5. Excellent I built their thunderbird missile and the quality was top draw stuff.
  6. Ho folks, my wife bought me an Ender 3D printer for Chrimbo and I hadn’t dropped any hints at all, it was an inspired guess. I’ve set the printer up and have printed off a couple of things from the other thread listing go to places for STL files. This has got me comfortable with the machine whilst we’re still only days in. I’m now looking at the next step - how to create my own thoughts into design. So with the info above I’ll source that program and watch the videos. So brace yourself there will be questions. I predominantly do 1/32 kits and have a couple of ideas for years which now feel achievable.
  7. In the time you’ve built this and I now see you’re doing a Blackbird, I’ve still not sprayed my Sea Fury although the paint has got closer to the bench from the airing cupboard. It does look bloody good in those colours and you don’t see many built. Very nice indeed.
  8. I’m on Chastise by Max Hastings. Came recommended and so far 60 pages in, it’s good.
  9. I’ve put my wife’s details in. See how long she can hold her breath for whilst landing in the sea
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks everyone for the resurrection. Tony I thought so even painted on lamb chops and a gringo
  12. 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……..
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. What a great model that is. I really wish they’d do those Sqn decals in 1/32.
