    Never skimp on the light source! I used to have a Shesto/Lightcraft daylight task light, but I regularly had to change the tubes in it... I think LED is the better was, The Daylight Company have a few task lights in their range, I now have this one https://www.amazon.com/Industrial-Task-Lamp-European-Style/dp/B015GETB2M but it's for US/Japanese voltage...

  3. First time I've heard or read about this - is this a new-tool kit(s)? Or a rebox? Tried to Google it, but didn't come up with much either. J
  4. When the days slowly start to get that autumn feeling about them you immediately think: it must be time for Telford! Three weeks to go and show pre-orders are open in my web shop. With the Pound-Yen exchange rate going up and down like a yo-yo I've decided to increase the usual pre-order discount to 15% this year. Please select "personal pickup/show" in the deliveries tab and I will send a 15% refund back to you. New items at my table: A-3 Skywarrior "Version" canopies (very limited supply, be quick!) A-4B/C Nose Wheel Door F-4 Phantom canopy details for Zoukei Mura kits F-4 Phantom Stabilator Upgrade Set for Zoukei Mura and: my first full kit, the AG-330 Start Cart will be available as a pre-release in limited numbers and at a special price. A general note on pricing: nearly all Sterling prices have either been kept the same or rounded down compared to last year, again to offset the exchange rate fluctuations. According to the hall map, me and my friends from ModelArt have been moved to a centre isle end position, a bit unusual! You can find us in Hall 1, position G6 (more or less opposite Airfix/Hornby). Cheers Jeffrey
  5. Very very nice Andy! Will you bring this to Telford? GWH made some "interesting" (i.e. strange) design choices, such as the gear doors and the egg shaped tyres, but it's certainly miles better than the "shorty" Academy/Hobbycraft kit! And I love the colourful Japanese T-33 schemes. Just wondering, why did you choose International Orange and not a Dayglo orange? Cheers! J
  6. ...except in the kit they're not...The nozzles and wheels are the two weak points of this otherwise very nice kit. J
  7. Beautiful model and execution! And you eliminated the step as well. Really well done. Cheers, J
  8. I'm pretty sure a zero-duties trade deal relates to customs duties alone, it has nothing to do with VAT. I've just had a look and the import duty threshold was £135 in the UK. So the new regulations will only have an effect on larger orders. The VAT threshold is £15 and that remains unchanged. If you get "caught", you're still liable for 20% VAT plus RM's famous handling charge. J
  9. Different intake bullet (generator vs starter) on Navy vs. AF types and different cross sections between early and later Hasegawa tooling.
  10. I've made a few correction items for the Academy kit - stabilators, A/C intakes, correct early seats... I also made whole new tail section, made from a Hasegawa tail, extensively reshaped to match the Academy aft fuselage contour. I left it unfinished though as it will be a nightmare to cast and more difficult to install than the ZM shape correction parts. As the ZM tail has more detail than Hasegawa I'm now pondering the idea of trying to make a ZM tail fit to the Academy fuselage (even though we know the A. kit a bit too lean over the engine shoulders) just to get a decent B model...Or finish off the Hasegawa tail part. One day... J
  11. That's looking sooo good! J
  12. Looks very interesting indeed - but what is your reference re. the C-1 seat? TO my knowledge, the Stanley/Lockheed C-1 was used only in the F-104A, B and some very early C's and D's, relatively soon to be replaced by the upward firing C-2 seat. I don't think any G models were ever fitted for downward ejection - the C-2 was standard before the G came along. The canopy internals would have been visibly different as well. Is there perhaps a confusion between "early" and "late" seat relating to the early C-2 seat vs. the late Martin Baker GQ-7? Your picture looks very much like the C-2 seat. Cheers, Jeffrey
