  1. It looks lovely, but sadly not for me. I once bought a Flyhawk 1/700 Derfflinger and it frightened me so much I had to sell it on
  2. Always glad to see a Spitfire, and that's a very nice example. Well done!

    Too much money, too little sense. Dave (who wishes he could afford a holiday at that price!)

    Airfix 2021...

    Probably we'll get the Merlin engined Wellington, as we know Airfix are planning this, and as a personal fantasy, a Manchester. Not likely, I know, but I can hope!
  5. Very nice build, the Fortress does look in the Bomber Command scheme. I have one in the stash that I'm going to do as an aircraft flown by Murray Peden, author of 'A Thousand Shall Fall'. I've got the ORB from the National Archives, all I need now is get stuck in!
  6. Great piece of work! I'm a Zulu War bore enthusiast and I have to say that is a really well executed diorama, those Beneito figures are very good. I remember the old Cliff Sanderson figures released by Hinchliffe many years ago and the Norman Abbey diorama that I saw exhibited at 'Under Two Flags'. Well done!
  7. Kelvin McKenzie was one quoted as saying that when he was the editor of one of the red-tops (can't remember which one), it was h is job to sort the wheat from the chaff, and print the chaff. Whatever sells.
  8. New Revell 1/72 Junkers 88A1 from Ebay. Ebay very nicely gave me a £10 voucher in compensation for an order I didn't receive, so the Junkers cost me £8.99 post free. Happy!!!!!
  9. What a beautiful job! I've got one of these in the stash and would love it if it turned out half as good as yours. Sadly I know it won't!
  10. Well, if anyone can afford good lawyers I would imagine it would be the Stones. Good luck to 'em!
  11. I have been known to dismantle kits, usually by throwing them against a wall. Never tried reassembling them afterwards, though.

    Oh, the irony!

    Quite so. I have seen the gravestones in Rottingdean churchyard, some years ago when visiting the area. They are not located where they can be seen by the casual passer-by, and they don't appear to have caused offence in nearly 60 years. My opinion of the archdeacon could not be posted here.
