  1. CedB did a WIP of the Airfix P.1127. The link is here. I hope it helps.
  2. Might I suggest that a request in trhe wanted section might turn up the required sprue from somebody who has not used it.
  3. When my mother-in-law stands in the nude she looks like a wall of whitewash. My mother-in-law's so fat she had to lose weight to model maternity frocks. My mother-in-law sent her photograph to the Lonely Hearts Club. They sent it back saying they weren't that lonely. I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport. My mother-in-law said to me “If you were my husband. I’d put poison in your coffee.” I replied “If I were your husband, I’d drink it!”
  4. Might I refer you to this link where Bill Matthews converts a AMT EC-135N (derived from the AMT KC-135) into a Boeing 720 in 1/72 scale. Starting with a KC-135 kit negates the need to fit a new nose as Bill did. And I love the reference in the article to Hilton Jones of Cardiff who combined a Heller 707 with an Airfix C-130 to produce a Vanguard. Now that's converting!
  5. According to my newspaper today, the helipad was repaired yesterday (Friday).
  6. I believe that when they rebuilt the Halifax at the Yorkshire Air Museum, Elvington, they used a set of Hastings wings as no Halifax wings could be found.
  7. And as I write this I expect there is somebody at MoD hunting through the military aircraft equivilant of Autotrader looking for low hours Pumas so they don't have to spend lots on new Puma replacement helos. Beancounters win as always
  8. They were on the shelves in my newsagent this morning. I left them there.
  9. I'm sorry to come late to the party, but I found this supplier by searching on the web. I bought 8 shelves for my two Detolfs, and I've just fitted one, and it looks fine. The shelf is acrylic, not glass and supports up to 3kg. I ordered them early yesterday morning and they arrived about 3.30 today. As the models won't be moving on the acrylic it shouldn't scratch up. One day Ikea will do an 8 shelf Detolf but until then, I'm sorted.
  10. I do hope his coffin is covered with a chequered flag - somehow it seems appropriate.
  11. I'm waiting for Oprah to interview the Airfix design team who will say "No matter how good we make the kits they're never good enough for some modellers"
  12. Or even spend about £20 on a book with photographs of the tank. I've looked in my meagre AFV library and in some you photos can clearly see the wheel bolts - all 8 of them on a wheel.
  13. Well as I have missed many copies due to them not being available in my newsagents, I won't be buying them should they re-appear there.
  14. Wait until they put the wrong gear lever in the Austin ambulance - guaranteed 6 pages minimum.
  15. My Cromwell IV and Cromwell VI arrived today from Jadlam (sharp price and quick delivery) and printed on the side of the box is "Made in Korea". I suspect that Academy have designed, tooled and moulded these for Airfix, especially going by the sand coloured plastic. Unless anybody knows different?
