    Airfix 2019

    To be honest I do think the big news at Telford this year will be 1/24 scale. Going by past results, think left field and fighter size and you won't be wrong. Me 262 Sea Fury Meteor Also I can see the 1/48 range being extended by subjects they have done in 1/72. Dick

    Trouble with new Aztek A470 Airbrush

    I had one of these for over 10 years. Had to send it back a couple of times and got a new one as a replacement. It got to the stage where I was soaking it in neat Acetone to clean it out as it kept getting clogged up. Went out and bought a Harder and Steenbeck Infinity 2in1.... It was like going from a Model T to the top of the range Rolls Royce. I can do painting now that I could only dream of with the Aztec. Dick

    Diesel cars

    An aside question regarding speedometers. In my Tiguan I have an electronic dash ..speedo and rev-counter are all part of a "tv screen". in front of the steering wheel. Is the speed read out more accurate than the "normal" dial types found in most vehicles? Cheers Dick

    Diesel cars

    Please don't forget the EGR valve …… cost me over £700 when it went loopy on my 2 litre diesel Golf plus ; at around the 60,000 mile mark. Ouch !! Then told by my garage to use Shell "V-power" that put the running costs into orbit. On the 2 litre petrol (4WD) Tiguan I'm getting 30-40 to the gallon, still works out cheaper. Dick

    Diesel cars

    Went from a Golf plus, 2 litre diesel to a 2 litre Tiguan mk. 2 petrol. Best move I have ever made. Learnt the hard way with the diesel. Did not like short runs at all. The Tiguan ……… 4 months after purchase there is still a big, big grin on my face every time I get in it. Dick
