    Airfix 2019

    But they also do 24th don't forget... A big Viggen in splinter camo now i'd buy that for a dollar!!
  2. Yes I saw that, then it disappeared...... maybe it's something they let slip
  3. Lightning F6 24th please..... But i'd take a big Lanc as well Or maybe a glass nosed two stage Mossie in 48th or 24th......
  4. Just acquired a couple of these amazing kits, The CB750F and GSX1100S Katana, and as good as they are they show their age with the chrome plated bits and oversized cables etc My Questions are 1, Is there any non destructive way of removing the chrome plating from the engine pieces? 2, Is there any cables and pipes that have a more realistic appearance, I'm particularly looking for stuff that resembles Braided oil cooler and brake lines. 3, Also has there ever been any aftermarket stuff like alternate wheels, exhaust systems or suspension parts, Tamiya themselves produced "Hopped Up" versions of their 1/12th scale kits Regards Rob.....

    Grand Slam -urban myth?

    To give you an idea about blast damage, if you remember the damage caused to the center of Manchester when the IRA bomb detonated in 1996, it was calculated that it was 3300lbs and that was a Semtex/ ammonium nitrate fertiliser explosive not as effective as the Torpex that the Grand Slam used, it contained just over 9000lbs of that explosive one of those going off on the surface would create huge damage across a very wide area...

  9. Hornby selling one of the SLA prototypes for the big Tiffie, with added Car-doorness....... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Airfix-Archive-Hawker-Typhoon-Stereolithography-Prototype-Model-1-24-Scale-/201413931241?hash=item2ee534b0e9
  10. I'll be able to tell you tomorrow, as mine hopefully arrives then, the Airfix Mossie is brilliant, but I expect the Tamiya to be superior, but the Airfix one has been out for 7 years, and it still holds up well. But i'll also compare it to the big Airfix tiffie which I expect will run it close.... I may even get the glue and paints out......
  11. Splendid work Sir! looks real...

    New Tamiya 1/32 d.h. Mosquito FB.VI

    Deffo a Bomber/PR variant on the cards as it looks like the Tamiya have engineered a break in the fuselage immediately ahead of the strengthening band... And looking at this view, although I can't quite see enough, but it appears that everything immediately ahead of the firewall in the nacelle is separate indicating that maybe twin stage merlins are in the pipeline aswell...
