  1. In the thick of it onboard HMS Valiant during the vital Battle of Cape Matapan. A sad loss. but what a full life he had.
  2. Absolutely love Bovington. Travel over 500 miles to get there and have to be dragged out at closing time. Best of luck with the new venture, be safe and be excellent! Cheers, Ian
  3. 2019 was a very good show in the new venue, but social distancing is impossible. Sad, but prudent to cancel.
  4. I don`t know why the link isn`t working but it isn`t. Typing `Amusing Hobby Shot Kal` does the trick.
  5. Amusing Hobby 1/35 IDF Shot Kal Alef # 35A048 (emodels.co.uk) Interesting. But didn`t the two extra turret machine guns come after the 1973 war as a response to the guided missile threat? I stand to be corrected and I`d be interested in any pics of the `73 war showing this three mg arrangement. Cheers, Ian
  6. Still a nice kit, even though the core gubbins are marked 1985. Tamiya built them to last. Still got crisp detail. I`ll be following this with enjoyment. Cheers, Ian
  7. Excellent, invaluable assistance again, thank you Dads203!!! Cheers, Ian
  8. Thank you very much gents, that is exactly what I needed, thank you. Cheers, Ian
  9. Thank you Dads203, some excellent assistance! I have sought out Wogga`s build and it is just the ticket, as well as being an exceptional bit of work. Very much appreciate being steered in the right direction! Cheers, Ian
  10. Thanks for the replies. I have no idea about this subject matter, but it was the radio relay FV439 vehicle with the masts etc stowed on the roof, that I was going to model. Ptarmigan Triffid/Radio Relay FV439 - Military Scale Models - HMVF - Historic Military Vehicles Forum I understood, possibly wrongly, that the Wavell system was fitted to a separate vehicle designated FV435, with a large box structure to the rear of the hull, so started a separate thread for that. I was looking to do both, but I know next to nothing about either. Thanks again,
  11. Hi all Info on this vehicle seems very hard to come by. Internet pics all seem to be from distance and all the wibbly bits seem to be covered in tarps. Any source out there for more on this vehicle? TIA Ian
  12. Hi all I`ve Googled the FV439 and got back some helpful pics. I still think I need an education and better pics if I`m to model one. Is there a go-to site for info? Am I correct in saying there were two main types with the difference being the generator housing on the roof? TIA Ian
  13. I have been informed that Academy still catalogues the Warrior as available and delivery is expected at some point in the future, out of model shop`s control. Which is fair enough in the current climate. When they turn-up-they turn-up; I can wait, got plenty to be going on with.
  14. You should visit, it is an excellent show. A big loss, but entirely understandable and wise decision.
  15. You`re spot-on; I`m wanting a basic Warrior from late eighties/nineties and that seems a whole lot easier/economical with the Academy kit. Academy still list the kit on their website which is why I asked the question. I shall wait and see....got plenty time on my hands and a long build queue. Thanks for the assists. Ian
