  1. Had a bit of a binge from Hattons pre-owned sale and got the following: Eduard 1/48 Airco DH-2 Profipack Eduard 1/48 Roland C.ll Profipack Eduard 1/48 Albatros D.lll O.A.W. Eduard 1/48 Fokker D.Vll(Fok) Also, from Ebay at a good price Mirage Hobby Halberstadt CLll early version. I wasn't going to make any more biplanes.
  2. Thanks, that sounds as though it makes sense. I'll look out for Martin; Streetly's books as well. I remember reading about the cockpit side window lower halves being painted in 'A Thousand Shall Fall' by Murray Peden, but, annoyingly Mr. Peden didn't elaborate or any other paint jobs!
  3. Out of interest, would that also apply to the B-17s used by Bomber Command, I'm thinking of the Fortress Mk.lll here.
  4. Unless the soldier looks like this, I'm not particularly interested
  5. If you're going to Norfolk, it would be rude not to take a trip across the border to Lowestoft, wouldn't it?
  6. Received this week: The two A10 Cruiser Tanks were from One35Scale.com, part of their May deal, if you bought two they were half price, so £60.00 for both, something it would have been rude to ignore. The Meteor from Ebay a bargain at £16.00.
  7. I'm not a huge fan, to put it mildly, of photo-etch, particularly if you have to fold it, and rigging biplanes is another thing. I love First World War two-seaters, but the rigging That being the case, why on earth have I just bought a MIrage 1/48 Halberstadt CL.ll?
  8. Yes, shame there won't be any more. Anyway, here's another clip:
  9. Outstanding comedy from Father Ted (it made me laugh anyway!)
  10. Lots of both. Since all the pits and factories in the area have closed Barnsley has very clean air. No money, but very clean air.
  11. Splendid work! The Victor is my favourite of the V-bombers, such a beautiful aircraft.

    Thunder Strike

    Excellent work! The Thud looks really good in RAF colours.
  13. I'm not sure how accurate their research is, but Xtradecal sheet X72319 has two Mediterranean based aircraft, one Malta based 217 Squadron in EDS Grey/Dark Slate Grey/Azure Blue and one, unit unknown Mediterranean based, in Dark Mediterranean Blue/Light Mediterranean Blue/Azure Blue.
