  1. The one on my shelf looks not only high but distinctly bowed upwards in the centre.
  2. Having just used the nearby car park between the sports pitches and whatever the council calls what used to be The Nature Centre, probably the handiest car park once Tally Ho is full, it was £2.80 for four hours, £4.20 for eight.
  3. This is very local for me - sadly got lumbered solo with the kids for the day last time so it was out of the question, but hope to get there this time. Will look out for details.
  4. Everything Corsair says...but from the experience of my wife’s grandparents, consider being remote from medical infrastructure not just now, but in 5, 10, 15, 20 years (with luck). Before too long they had to move back somewhat nearer to “civilisation” as their dependence on medical access increased very significantly as they aged.
  5. ...one for modelling in and a spare for living in the rest of the time
  6. What a coincidence. We were on holiday in Wales that week, and were right underneath your Tuesday F15s for two or three laps, near Corris.
  7. I mean, a walk round would be challenging at this point...
  8. £40! The 747 Ed force one was less than that
  9. There’s been barely any contemporary F1 models in the last decade. Would be nice to have a few.

    Model Shops UK

    Well here’s a thing A new Bachmann retail shop! i wish them them luck but I fear this may be what Sir Humphrey would call a brave decision...
  11. I’m pleasantly surprised to learn they’ll come back. You could easily see Humbrol enamel being squeezed out as us diehard enamel users prefer more specialist brands, while acrylics become ever more popular especially with what newbies there are.
  12. Ah well being optimistic, perhaps they’ll be better than recent versions
  13. Ah, so for some reason not translated at all then!
  14. 52 is no age at all...
  15. One is built by a system in which man exploited man, and the other in a system in which it was the other way around? is there an rrp yet? I won’t use fascistbook
  16. I’ve just spent a very frustrating time trying to paint a small part, hampered by a sudden bad case of a trembling or twitching hand, which got worse the harder I tried to suppress it! Other than perhaps cutting down on the caffeine, does anyone have any good tips?
  17. It’s more work than is worthwhile and would need a donor GR1 kit you might as well build. For an interesting gulf war pairing, swap the external tanks between the two, as this was what they did.
  18. Can anyone help, what’s the name of the tug in the bottom right of the picture? And does anyone offer one in 1/72 ?
  19. It’s interesting how many of the most important British aircraft were developed either without ministry support or in some cases, in the face of opposition. We might have ended up trying to fight the Battle of Britain with P40s and Boomerangs
  20. Having read most of the individual memoirs and unit histories of British tanks that have been “kindled”, I’ve yet to come across anything covering armoured cars. They merit only the briefest passing mention in the tankers’ own books. Does anyone know of any good titles?
  21. I’ve never understood how the DH9/9a have been virtually ignored by manufacturers. Far more obscure WW1 types have been covered by several manufacturers each.
