  1. You know, that sounds quite plausible. I'll bet there were some interesting meeting held when the error was discovered!
  2. To be fair, both reviews in Homebee's post do mention the white serials and the need to obtain correct, black serials. Trumpy's error is to have specified silver undersides, although why they imagine anyone would put white serials on silver is anyone's guess! I am sure that this kit will not be replacing the Airfix kit in my stash.

    What have you purchased / been given

    Hobbyboss 1/32 F84G Thunderjet from Ebay, 'cos I like F84's, and it was a very nice price! It was also somewhat misleadingly described as 1/48, which may have lessened interest in it, but I recognised the box art and looked further

    New Ship Related Releases

    Looking at those pictures of Dorsetshire on the HobbySearch site, either it wasn't photographed on a flat surface or it has a banana shaped hull!
  5. That's a beautiful piece of work and a cracking paint job. I would love to build the Naiad, she's a lovely ship,, but having seen the reviews and the size of some of the parts I'm afraid it's not on. Well done, that man!

    Spitfire pilot pistol

    That's an interesting idea, I suppose a downed pilot being threatened by a vengeful mob might fire a round over their heads hoping to keep them at bay until soldiers/police arrived who would probably be less inclined to lynch him.

    Possible 'phishing' attempt from spurious PayPal

    Yes, I got one of those. Just ignored it. Not that I'd know how to update my browser anyway!

    Movie soundtracks

    If you want an outstanding version of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, try this: Classic! The Ukes rule!

    Not very nutritious, but after six bottles of beer, who cares!

    Planning a series of dioramas

    You might find this short film useful for visualising tactics.

    Which version of Charge of the Light Brigade is it? Please tell me it's not the Errol Flynn version! In spite of the criticisms it has received, the 1968 version is pretty good. Trevor Howard is superb as Cardigan.

    What have you purchased / been given

    I was starting to come down with that syndrome, but I'm fighting it strongly (looking at my stash, not strongly enough! Miniart's interior models! Meng's T-72's!). To get away from Soviet armour I've just receive Copper State Models' 1/48 Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin. Fascinating aircraft and the Premium Edition which I got has a resin engine and metal exhaust pipes. Lovely! A nice size, too, not as big as the WNW kit. Although that would be nice too

    My eyes aren't that bad! Not yet, anyway.

    Airfix 2019

    I'd rather squint and spend my money on kits

    Airfix 2019

    In 1/48, of course.
