  1. I got a bit excited for a moment, I've not been taking an interest much for a couple of years so thought I'd missed something. I'm not sure you're right about the Zero though: metal-winged Browning-armed Hurricanes, Wildcats/Martlets and P50 B/Cs haven't had a definitive model made of them, in 1/72 at least. With the Zero, we have Tamiya and also the Airfix example. It does look like a Japanese type but maybe something in need of a new moulding. Someone mentioned above that the Val hadn't been represented well...
  2. If fully fuelled, that was the theory. I seem to recall there was a photo to back it up but don't have the link, I'm afraid.
  3. I really appreciate the one-piece engine cowl, even if the exhaust pipes are attached. John.
  4. Great link, thanks. Love that part of the country.
  5. Well I knew that some Defiants with Merlin IIIs had six stack exhausts so it wasn't entirely unreasonable. Just wrong, as I can see now (I'd have probably noticed myself if I hadn't started on the ale early). Probably...
  6. Oh dear. Hook, line and sinker! Thanks for putting me right. John.
  7. Evening all, I've been wanting to build one of Al Deere's Spitfires for a while and found some 1/72 markings for KL-B P9398 in my transfer box. Now, I undersand that was probably P9390 in reality, but in searching for photos online, came across this. Six stack exhausts. Any idea what I could use for these? Thy don't look much like those fitted to Mk.IXs J. PS The last number of the serial is indistinct in the photo. Any thoughts?
  8. DH propellers were heavier than Rotol ones. On Sea Hurricanes this helped to compensate for the weight of the arrester hook. Don't know about Malta Spitfires though. John.
  9. Was just about to type, "been using BM all day and still haven't had one!" You can guess the rest.
  10. Lovely model. You say it went together with no issues at all, does that mean it was fine with the recommended weight in the nose? John.
  11. So, my leader has become involved and her foot has definitely been put down. DPD are collecting the box later today. So the answer to the question, my friends, was to buy a smaller printer. John. PS Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm sure they'll come in handy next time I go rogue.
