  1. Hi SAT69, a good introduction to the breadth of the 1/72 and 1/76 armour world(s) can be had by a visit to Henk of Holland. https://henk.fox3000.com/index2.htm
  2. Hi Boneychest, how's the project progressing?
  3. http://sandmmodels.co.uk/news/ 2 Versions in the pipeline: #1 Dan-Air #2 RAF Queen’s Flight CC2 Mel doesn’t say on his website when these are expected to be available so I expect that we shall just have to be patient.
  4. I'm awstruck! I'm planning an airfield diorama which I'll be starting this year and although I've invested in some commercially available kit parts to make part of a 'T' shed I'd love to put a 'C' shed on it too - in partial relief as I've got some space but not infinite! How has your project developed? You obviously found some authoritative drawings and I'm truly envious of your skills with CAD and with the laser cutter. I'm dying to know how it has worked out. With bated breath.....
  5. Oh, and I forgot to thank TexanTomcat for bringing this to our attention - good spot!
  6. I wouldn’t worry too much about the “20mm” description; in my experience that can be a bit of a generality. T2 Hangars (there were four sub-types) were all 118ft wide. According to the calculator on my phone, 502mm (see Blotz website) is equivalent to 118.58ft at 1/72 scale. That’s near enough for me to be tempted to buy!
  7. Now listed on the big H website and expected March 2020 - not long to wait! Happy days! https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/VAL72142
  8. The conversion is still available as far as I’m aware. Try ‘Flightpath’ or djparkins.com.
  9. Standing by to be corrected (haven’t got my log book to hand) but iirc XT281 was on the strength of 237 OCU at Honington in 1981.
  10. Hi Trenton guy, - just looked at the Air Graphics website and the Wasp conversion CS-07 is there now.
  11. I had hopes for the Bedford RL. Now having seen the pictures above, the cab shape doesn’t look right. The front windows on the real thing are not in line but angled in a slight ‘V’. The front face of the cab on the model resembles that of the RL-based fire appliance at Retford that Barry Wright (BW Models) produced in 1/76. I think I’ll hold on for the RL that Milicast are planning to release this year; I expect that’ll be more reasonably priced too.
  12. With apologies for the failure to provide a link (not sure how to on iPad - must get more tech-savvy) there it is on Hannant’s website. Due July 2019.
  13. Well my airliner recognition isn’t up to much but I’m not too convinced by the pictures chosen to illustrate 144131-02 (Airbus A-321?) and 144131-03 (Airbus A-319?) or is it me?

    EE Thunderbird

    Hi Colin, There's now a 3D printed 1/72 scale Thunderbird available from 'printedplanes' on eBay. The model is offered with or without the trailer: the version with the trailer is at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-72-Thunderbird-Missile-Trailer-3D-Printed-Model I have one on order so I can't comment on the quality but I already have a Bloodhound from the same source and cannot fault it.
