  1. My understanding was (and I could be wrong) that the Red,White & Blue flash was introduced with the '77 for the Silver Jubilee, and was retained afterwards modified with the 892 Squadron crest replacing the '77, if so that would date it to late '77 or '78.

    1/35 MRAP Experten Needed

    The soon to be released Meng Husky, looks like it may be worth waiting for:

    AS-90 SPG - Images of on Operations or Excercise Needed, please.

    You can try the Plain Military Facebook page, lots of pics of current Brit AFV's out and about on Salsibury Plain, and it just so happens that the latest post has more than a few AS-90 heading out on exercise, link below: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1412700309034179/

    What have you purchased / been given

    Received a Tamiya 1/35 Cromwell today from Jadlam, and I picked up some link to link tracks for it too courtesy of eBay. I'm tempted to go for a PanzerArt Turret & Glacis with Hessian net for it too.

    There is one for sale on Facebook at moment at £33 including P&P, I have no connection to the buyer, just noticed his post whilst browsing: PM me for the link.
  6. Let's hope that it's 1/350 and it's part of an air wing of a post war British carrier kit, it looks like an S.2 so that means Ark Royal, Eagle, Victorious or Hermes if my memory serves me right. Oh I've come over all wobbly

    RIP Dad

    I lost my Dad 18 years ago, and as the guys above have said, I still occasionally find myself thinking of and missing him. Cherish the good times, they will last forever in your memory.

    Where have all the Centurions gone?

    I managed to get an Aussie one from evilBay for £37.99 including P&P. It should be in my hands on Friday / Monday.

    Where have all the Centurions gone?

    Yep, I guess I'm not the only one that wants one.

    What have you purchased / been given

    I received the last part of my Takom Chieftain collection, the Mk.10, I've now got all 4 kits, and the way Takom have broken down the kit, I'll have a few spare parts left over to dress up the Tamiya kit currently crossing the workspace. I'm also hoping that Takom might see fit to add other versions like the ARV, ARRV or even the AVLB, now that would be a kit and a bit.

    Where have all the Centurions gone?

    I had spotted it at £2.99, since you posted the link it's shot up beyond £30, the sellers probably well happy.

    They've already done something similar to create the Chieftain Mk.2, it's a different upper hull and turret moulding to the Mk.5, 10 & 11 kits. You never know, they might go for it.

    You can message Takom direct through their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TAKOM-354803674728188/ When I contacted them about the missing decal sheet, I had a very quick and ultimately good response, just remember to make allowances for the time difference from where you are to China.

    Funnily enough, over the last couple of days I've been corresponding by e-mail with Takom over a replacement decal for my Chieftain Mk.11 kit, and having reached a satisfactory conclusion (US$1 for the decal + US$8 for postage), I took the opportunity to suggest that a Chieftain ARRV was a logical follow on. I'll happily take the credit if it ever happens
