    What have you purchased / been gifted

    Delivered today, for a little diorama I have planned with a USMC LAV-25 2018-05-14_04-13-39 by antdphillips, on Flickr

    I guess thats why I have so many started but unfinished projects on the go, the mojo goes into hiding part way through a build and I get distracted by something else. Welcome to the hypertension club, it's surprising how many of us are in it, I know what you mean about finding time to exercise, I work an 11 hour day including time spent behind the wheel commuting, its very difficult to find time in the evenings especially as my almost 8 year old daughter insists on her Dad doing bedtime, the lighter evenings do help now that Summer is almost upon us, Hope you find the mojo soon. Happy modelling Ant

    Hi Granto, Any progress with this one, I've been somewhat distracted by a couple of Land Rovers that have parked themselves on my work space, but hope to get back to the LAV's soon. Happy modelling Ant

    Greetings from North Wales. The Welsh one.

    Another welcome from the Southern part of God's own country, down here in Neath.

    Congratulations on beating what is regarded in some circles as an almost unbuildable kit, like you I built one a few years ago and had to beat it into submission, lots of shimming and filling to get parts to align. That being said there's not much else out there and it does look great when finished.

    Fab paint job and the cam net looks the biz too
  8. Consider this followed , I've recently picked up this kit (and its Bulldog brother) I know what you mean about the ejector pins although to be fair to Takom a lot of them are placed where they'll be hidden from view.
  9. Those drawings are the dog's danglies Crisp, they look utterly marvelous.

    Hi Granto, I just noticed that some of the links to your photos don't seem to be working. Your builds are really are coming on a treat and the your WIP photos have been a big help with my builds, incidentally, my twins have become quadruplets, along with the original Italeri TUA and Mortar Carrier, I also had a Trumpeter LAV-C2 and this week a brand new Italeri LAV-25 turned up. The age and relatively soft detail of the Italeri kits compared to the comparatively new Trumpeter kits is readily apparent, I'm tempted to start a build thread of my own. Cheers Ant

    That was quick, just noticed Hannants have the new Eduard sets for this kit and voila the Interior set includes a gunsight: https://www.eduard.com/store/out/media/49878.pdf Very strange how Airfix missed this though.

    I forgot to mention, that Airfix have given Steve aka our own NAVY870 a credit in the instructions along with Roy Sutherland, I can't think of 2 more knowledgeable guys than them.
  13. I'm in, following along to a Crisp build* as usual. *or a not quite yet build in this case

    The Sea Fury rumour thread 2

    A quick perusal of the instructions tonight confirms that Airfix have not included a gun sight, this was mentioned in the Airfix Model World test shot build a couple of issues ago, I was hoping that Airfix might have rectified that but it appears not, an absolute schoolboy error, but I'm sure Eduard or Quickboost will soon rectify that anyway.

    The Sea Fury rumour thread 2

    I'm not sure I will be able to resist until then, but Mrs P works on a Saturday so I don't need to be so secretive about another new arrival then, and can gratuitously fondle the plastic to my hearts content
