  1. Phil Evans


    Terry has put up a new kit news update, which is good to see
  2. I see that Wingnut Wings have 2 new boxings in their series of aircraft of the aces on pre-order. 32605 Fokker D.VIIF "Hermann Goering" 32608Sopwith Snipe "William Barker"
  3. USAF Air Defence Command had a program called College Dart to provide TOPGUN type training.
  4. I see that the 32068 F.1/Dr.1 (early) has what looks like the artists draft of the boxart. It looks very different and it could be Voss and 56 Sqn.
  5. The boxart for 32069 Fokker Dr.1(Late) and 32051 Handley Page 0/100 is on the Wingnut Wings website
  6. www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234920753-valient-and-blue-steel This was a previous discussion on the topic (yes, I know I need to learn how to post links and images!)
  7. Hi James I reckon the serial number of the Horsa is PW656 as noted next to the aircraft type. Edit- If it is PW656 it was written off on this operation according to the Aviation Safety Network (www.aviation-safety.net/wikibase/140605) Good luck exploring what I am sure is a fascinating story Phil
  8. Don't forget the Samson recovery vehicle. Good reply about the Royal bit as that is a bit of a pet peeve of mine but I can easily understand how confusing it looks from the outside. Like you say, the Navy is Royal, the Airforce is Royal so why wouldn't people expect the Army to be Royal?
  9. Hi Ken, Did you make any more progress on this? Phil Evans
  10. Grey Matter Figures did a 1/24 scale Rotol prop and spinner Cheers Phil
  11. That looks really good, I reckon I'll see about getting one. The interior should have been silver paint rather than bare metal. It was that stupid stuff that would rub off on your boots really easily and then be a sod to get off your boots. Cheers Phil
  12. I used the address on the side of the box a couple of times a few years ago. I sent them 3 International Reply Coupons each time (I got them from the post office). There was no acknowledgement but the parts arrived a long time later. I'm not sure if there are such things as International Reply Coupons any more or who told me to use them in the first place. They will need the boxing reference, the sprue letter and the part numbers on that sprue, that's assuming Hasergawa still offer the same service. I hope this is of some use Phil
  13. There are photos of a Sherman ARV (13/18th Hussars?) on a landing craft prior to D Day with a motorbike strapped on. I guess they did it where the mobility of the motorbike was compromised by mud in the case of the Germans or going through deep water in the case of the Allies.
  14. It could be equipped with Oboe or Gee equipment.
