    Tamiya 32nd Spitfire XVIe aftermarket

    Having done one all that is really needed are the following if you are not super detailing it. New door ………. Barracuda New rocker covers with the Rolls Royce name on them ……….. Barracuda New tyres for main wheels...…..Barracuda That's it...…. the kit is that good. I had the same difficulty with decals and used what was in the box...… could have been better. HTH Dick
  4. Did one of these some time back. It's a great little kit. You have done a superb job. Congrats. Most people when they see it on the club stand say..... what the ******************* is that??????? or words to that effect. Really gets their attention. Cheers Dick

    Hornby moving back home

    Hornby are moving back to their old premises in Margate and being "upgraded". Good news for all. https://theisleofthanetnews.com/2018/11/29/hornby-hobbies-bringing-offices-and-showroom-back-to-its-traditional-margate-home/ Dick
  6. Many thanks for your kind comments and likes . Much appreciated. Dick
  7. This is the fantastic Tamiya 109 G-6. In the markings of JG54 . Oblt. Wilhelm Schilling, February 1944. The only item I have added is an Eduard seat harness. Decals are Tamiya and they are miles better than what they have done before. I cannot exude how much I enjoyed doing this kit. It's like they have taken one of the 1/32 scale models and scaled it down. IT'S THAT GOOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It does what it says on the box. Is there room for AM items … well really no except for the engine and seat belts. For around £30 it's a belter. Anyway on to the pics. Please feel free to comment etc. Thanks for looking Dick

    Just how dangerous is our hobby?

    I have one major health hazard when it comes to this hobby...………………….. when SWMBO finds out how much I have spent over the month on plastic and paint. Now that is life threatening ……………….. Dick

Very simple and basic, but looks like a Wasp. The markings are for 706 NAS. July 1971. Hope you like and please feel free to comment etc. Thanks for looking Dick
