  1. Ha, I'm doing exactly the same with my Airfix Buccaneers - currently building the RAF machine first to hone my better work for the Senior Service!
  2. Tagging along for this one as I've got the RN FG1 that I'm hoping to tackle in the near future.
  3. I take it back then, if they're willing to churn out a relatively obscure - yet severely under-represented - subject like the Defiant in different scales in quick succession then anything's possible
  4. Cracking effort, you've done a really nice job to depict a loco that's seen its fair share of use.
  5. You'd think that it must be on their radar considering how often it gets mentioned on here and elsewhere but... from a marketing perspective, would they release a kit in 1/48 so soon after doing it in 1/72? The S2B only hit the shelves earlier this year, though admittedly that was because it was delayed from 2020. I'd wager that we'll have to wait a little while longer, though I'll gladly be proved wrong! Have Airfix set a precedent (in recent times, at least) of releasing the same subject in different scales in quick succession? If they have, I suspect it must have had elliptical wings
  6. I missed that, I was too busy trying to work out what the aircraft that was blurred out on his screen could be. They're definitely trolling us with the F35s now, there were at least two in different scales within one shot this week.
  7. I'm in. The default choice would be a Viggen, though could do something Swiss.
  8. I'm in. Undecided what I'll build but the Hellenic Air Force lends itself to some interesting subjects.
  9. Sounds like a great idea. I'm probably leaning towards the civilian side; maybe the Italeri Ford Transit or Miniart beer van, or something railway related. Either way, sign me up.
  10. What a beast. Great job with the undercarriage, it certainly looks like it's straining under 20-odd tonnes of Soviet air superiority. Terrific pics too
  11. Really nicely done. Certainly get the impression that the engine would sound as rough as the paintwork! Inspiring stuff
  12. Very tempted to get one of these, I'll be interested to see how it goes. That's a very smart scheme you've earmarked too. Good luck!
  13. That's a brilliant finish you've achieved there. Very inspiring for a fellow hairysticksmith
  14. If we're talking 80s synths then Swede Dreams (Are Made of This) by the Eurythmics would be pretty apt...
  15. I'm in. I've written to Santa and if I'm a really good boy then there might be a Modelsvit Mirage coming down my chimney next month...
  16. She's really looking the business now. Never seen those markings on the underside of the tailplane before, every day's a school day!
  17. Paramjit has spoken on the Flory Models channel a few times about how Eduard has set the benchmark when it comes to tooling. They know.
  18. Given how popular Eduard's Desert Babes Tonka was, I wouldn't be surprised if conversations have been had regarding giving the Bucc the same treatment. Fingers crossed.
  19. Sorry to hear that @ERK. She was looking great and you were making great progress - I'd be still faffing with sanding and filling within that time span. Do what you feel is best, it's only a hobby after all. Hope you find your mojo again soon
  20. Ha, I missed that one. Bizarre. Love the JCB idea BTW
  21. That's pretty much most modern TV documentaries in a nutshell. Information and detail is often shunned for fear of losing viewers. Instead, a narrative with fabricated tension is preferred. And once you've whittled down the endless previewing and recapping you're left with barely 30 minutes of actual content. That said, overall I've found the series interesting and it's nice to see some famous brands undergoing a revival. Though I do think the F35 is quite clearly a red herring, Hornby will have had control over what could be seen. I'm pretty sure that in some of the other episodes there have been objects and sensitive information blurred out around people's workspaces.
  22. I've been drawn to this kit with the new reboxing and its attractive decal options, so I'm pulling up a chair and breaking out the snacks
  23. I'd be interested to see how that goes together. It's a nice looking engine.
  24. I would have thought that the Dapol Evening Star counts as big. I'd be tempted because I'd love to do a grubby 9F, though I'm sceptical about how the moulds have faired as they're practically as old as the loco itself.
