  1. KFS would seem to be going on as the address has changed to a Brum address and they talking are about new products with the assistance of the orginial owner.
  2. It is very much where we are sadly but where the hell will we all finish up.
  3. I lodged in Barnstable (Newport) when I was at North Devon Tech 60/61. The Southern Region branch line ran from Barnstable through Braunton, Mortehoe, Woolacombe and on to Ilfracombe. The Barnstable to Lynton I think had a station near main one but it went from there North eastwards across the town through Pilton and then out roughly NE to Lynton twisting it's way across the countyside. Southern closed in it 1935 and it was auctioned off shortly after. The gauge was 1' 11 and a 1/2" (just under 600mm) so was very narrow gauge. There was yard/maintenance/ sidings in the Pilton area of Barnstable. The viaduct at Chelfhan is worth a good look at as it is a magnificent structure.
  4. A seller on Ebay has them for sale now for £620 +£10 shipping no indication of preorder. Deliver by 26/10
  5. Hi Lee, What paint did you use for the red please
  6. Training exercise ? They have another one now, repair the landing pad.
  7. I would agree 100% with you, just totally useless and incapable. I still cant get a refund from them.
  8. It was not installed free, you and everybody else pays for the cost in their bills as with the cost of going green with wind turbines etc. The companies no longer employ an army of meter readers etc which must be a big saving but, I have not seen any savings passed on to the customer. Also from what I understand alot of these meters for various reasons do not work as required and some have shut the supply off or even caught fire.
  9. The Tamiya Phantoms are not perfect by any means, but I suspect that most people who buy the Revell Phantom will not be aware or care of it short comings and will build it as it comes out of the box and enjoy it. That list of corrections has been around for sometime and is nothing new and some of it really picky. As a matter of interest I have several of both makes as well as the old 1/32 Revell Phantom made in to late 60's which some people back then made into reasonable example which is what modelling is all about? There are several on ebay at the moment and are priced at more than some of the Tamiya ones.
  10. Pity they did not take more care with decal sheet as the navigators christian name is Nigel not Angel! Its correct on the box.
  11. Magnifier is an offshoot of Trumpeter I think, the kit has no reference to Ford or GT40 to avoid paying royalities to Ford.
  12. Creative Models have these in stock for £59.99 at the moment.
  13. Is anyone working on or anyone have available any corrections for the first kit?
