    Driving in France

    When I was driving in France last I had to bring my own single use breathalyser(x2) if you do get challenged by the local constabulary for being under the influence.
  4. Very smart looking Thud for an older kit it brushes up well.
  5. Has anyone happened to have had any dealings with an online model shop Neko Models(www.nekomodels-maquetas.com) in Spain, either good, bad or indifferent? I found their web site and they have a few items that I am interested in but as I have never had dealings with the company before I am wondering if any one in BM land has? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Vincent

    1/72 Hawker Hunter conversion question

    Thank you gents for the prompt and very informative reply's, I was right to ask here on the on the forum. 1903flight, a scan copy of the SAM article would be very welcome indeed, I will PM my email if you don't mind. David Womby, Yes please, a copy of the set instruction for the fuselage cuts would be great, I will also pm my email also if you don't mind. Thanks again gents Vincent
  8. Hi Folks, I am looking for some assistance from the BM membership at large in identifying a set of resin parts that I found in an old Airfix 1/72 Hunter FGA9 kit that I rediscovered recently while doing some random stash diving/sorting. I can’t remember where I picked the kit and conversion set up but probably from a member on the forum. The parts are in a cast in resin and consist of two replacement wings(w/o dogtooth), a smaller bore jet pipe and what I take to be a fuselage insert plug(about 3mm in 1/72) I suspect the parts are for a pre Hunter F.6 (possibly a F.4 or F.5?) but I am hoping someone can confirm the producer of the conversion set, which version it so for and if anyone knows of any instructions for the set? Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers Vincent

    1/72 Academy KB-29P tanker question

    Hi Greg, Have a look here if you are interested in picking up a set of the decals for the 1/72 Washington(1/48 & 1/144 also appear to be available) http://www.coastalcraftmodelsuk.com/air-craft.php?page=2 Regards

    1/72 Academy KB-29P tanker question

    Thanks for that, apart from the bomb load not being included, the KB-29P Tanker and the standard B-29A appear to be the same plastic, perfect. I had picked up the 1/72 Air-Craft Models Washington decals before sourcing the kit hence the original question. The roundels scale at 78 inch, 54 inch & 42 inch diameter(actual diameter is 28mm, 19mm & 15mm respectively) Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated, KB-29 tanker kit now ordered. Cheers Vincent ....and just realised that I should have posted this in the cold war section instead of the WW2 section, sorry!
  12. Hi folks, I am interested in building an RAF Washington Bomber using the academy kit and was wondering if anyone know if the Academy KB-29P tanker kit contents can be built as a standard B-29? Thanks in advance Vincent

    Airfix Me262 - a look in the box

    Thank you for the in box pictures, very much appreciated. Interesting to note that the main camo scheme shades listed on the instructions no longer appear to be available on the Humbrol website (discontinued?) Why do Airfix quote humbrol numbers on the kit instructions when their sister company no longer stock the relevant shades?
