  1. Lovely model. I have a few happy if cramped hours in these. My vote for your next model would be the Skylark 4 and it would be interesting comparing your 1/32 build to my 1/4 scale one
  2. Oh, superb sir. A pal mentioned this build to me and as I only pass this way occasionally I thought I had better come and take a look. This is modelling at its' best.
  3. Sorry if this touches a nerve. And there I think you have hit the nail on the head, the fee is not proportionate. And that is why it has been commented on, again, and in the case of the Ninak it is something like 20% of the whole. Also one cannot compare 25 years ago with today as the global market is so very different. I appreciate these companies cannot provide a service without a cost and that is why I said I factored in the charge and VAT so it was no surprise. It still does not stop me thinking that £11.25 is a disproportionate cost for a single item of such low cost and is excessive. Just my opinion. And nothing to do with people being dissatisfied, I think we are all extremely happy with our bargains and very happy with the overall cost.
  4. My Ninak has just arrived, apart from damage to the box the contents are in perfect condition and complete, they have even included a very nice SE5/SE5a Squadrons book. Chuffed doesn't even describe it. I don't think it is that people are never satisfied but like others I for one cannot see the justification for such a high fee, I think the fee is extortionate. Overall I am more than satisfied, I knew there would be VAT and a fee to pay which was factored into my decision to buy. I have had a very good deal and as I said I am more than happy.
  5. Saw this last Thursday, a thoroughly enjoyable film, I didn't think it was as good as Prometheus but it answered some questions. On the other hand it raised some more particularly when you look at the timeline from Prometheus through Alien Covenant to Alien. To me it doesn't quite add up and as the film has only just been released I don't want to explain it here and spoil it for others. Certainly an interesting revelation. Do I want to see it again, yes I do.
  6. It's a wonder the flying debris didn't hit the tail.
  7. This is really the only modelling site I frequently frequent and I am grateful for the effort put in by Mike and the crew. Time is precious enough without trying to spoil someones fun. Good luck bringing the perpetrators to book.
  8. Wow, this is truly inspirational, I love the way the build evolved to end up with a Mk.VIII. I am in awe that it is brush painted and the weathering that has been achieved. This kit is excellent value and it just shows what can be achieved when someone like Tony gets stuck in. Fantastic.
  9. Truly amazing and awe inspiring work there. I love the way this really is a work in progress making changes as the build progresses. Lovely.
  10. Arrived this morning Duncan, well packaged, many thanks that's cracking service and the postie played his part too. Now for a cup of coffee while I open the boxes
  11. Well, I have just defected. Cancelled my Hannants order and placed one with Black Mike Models. I quite like the way Duncan is involved on Britmodeller and has kept us informed of the progress of the shipment of Wingnut Camels. Hopefully 2 Camels will be winging their way south bound to the Potteries in the not too distant future.
  12. I'm sure a rough belly landing to a shot up aircraft would do further damage. Besides aircraft did continue to fly with one working aileron and even with no ailerons!! I can't remember the name of the pilot but a Lancaster returning from a raid lost both wing tips and ailerons in a cu-nim cloud, the pilot managed to control the aircraft using rudder and differential throttle (can't do that with a Spit though!), he took three attempts to land the damaged aircraft safely. Looks good, I look forward to seeing the finished diorama.
  13. Oh my word! What a superb collection and fantastic pictures. Thank you for sharing your passion so we can all enjoy. I'm going to be spending some time browsing your website too.
