  1. Ahh, apologies, well for a start you may want to look at Airfix 1/48 Afghanistan vehicle and figure sets, some of them include a Gimpey although the cost just for a gun is a bit of overkill. Check your PMs
  2. The GPMG or 'Gimpey' is the gun..........that's what it's called, standard issue for the British military.
  3. Roman Legionary walks into a pub, sticks two fingers up at the barman and says: 'Five beers please..............'
  4. Another size comparison, this one with a pair of size 10/44 feet
  5. It's a 255mm/10 inch ball, approximately..... ....I need a bigger table
  6. Wow, very nicely done indeed! The window tint is very effective as are the small details. Will have to add it to the list, I'm just starting the Dragonfly Hr3.........
  7. Excellent work Cadman, so much detail.
  8. That is a beautifully done and very neat model. Hmmm....Gabrielle Drake...string vests.......NURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Following this Dads, really nice work.... ....apart from the lack of Larkspur
  10. Hi Folks, I haven't pulled my bow for a good few years and having had a good rummage in my tackle this morning I came across a couple of tubes of this: https://www.quicksarchery.co.uk/superbasket/product/1851/LK45+Saunders+Arrowmate+NPV+Cement%3A I'd forgotten I had it, it's a MEK based clear gel with a fine applicator for applying flights and feathers to arrow shafts. When I get chance I'll test it on poly and resin but it could be a good alternative. Apologies if this has already been posted. Cheers, Derek
  11. Sorry, late return to this and Karl, you are quite right. Originally, when Imperial Airways sent their requirements, Handley Page designated the aircraft as HP42 and HP45 to reflect different interior arrangements, props and engines....however, in practice the aircraft were simply referred to as HP-42E or HP-42W Derek
  12. Of the eight HP42s built four were meant for 'Western' routes, i.e., Europe, and had full four bladed props. The 'Eastern' routes aircraft, Asia and Africa, had the split two bladed props to allow the aircraft to carry spare props. An excellent collection of photos !!!! Derek
  13. Hi Kev, The flaps on all Dove/Devons are the same, with two settings of 20% and 60%. If you mean the tail end then the aircraft has asymmetric elevators.....the right elevator had a rounded end, the left elevator was truncated. This was done to prevent buffering in flight. Looks odd but is one of the characteristics of a lovely looking aircraft... Cheers, Derek
  14. Hi Kev, Marvelous job, looking good. Check your messages... Cheers, Derek
  15. Sorry Kev, those are the only engine photos I have. I could sort out some line diagrams from the service manual if you need extra detail. Cheers, Derek
