    Grump Britain replacement

    That's not going to involve frost on the moustache is it?

    Spitfire Stencilling I have not seen before

    Is this the image? I'm looking at the odd bit on the top of the rear canopy section and thinking that it's a new one on me. Edited to add; Internally armoured windscreen,round rear view mirror,fully blown sliding canopy portion,cut here marks around sliding canopy portion,light coloured squadron code letter.Could this be a post war Mk21?

    Spot of the Day Part 2

    My apologies for butting in chums but, The Morris Minor Club met at Martin Dales this evening.All of these were gloriously perfect paint jobs which I was keen to admire.And then there was this one The Harlequin.Brush painted,runs and all,on a barely prepped body.She's proof that there is still a sense of humour in the world of preservation.

    Just had this warning from Mozilla.

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-windows-xp-and-vista?as=u&utm_source=inproduct I am an XP user.I will not be replacing my machine until it breaks,this has a lot to do with being a cheapskate. How do I stand as a daily user of this website.Am I potentially problematic or a threat to site,and other users,security?

    Viggen LIDARed at Newark

    Nope,you're all barking up the wrong tree.It's going to be the launch item for the new,hitherto unannounced,Eduard range that will go by the name of "Properjob". It will be the correction set for the Esci Viggen in 1/48th scale.There are noises about a 1/24th set as well to compliment the,also unannounced, long awaited and much anticipated Starfix new tooling.

    English Electric Lightning - did it splash a C130?

    Further to my earlier post I was discussing this again with Rick a couple of weeks ago.His end of the tale remains the same as related elsewhere in this thread,he only brought up the subject because someone has been fishing around for information with a view to content for a book. And yes,the man is alive and well and over the problems he was having back in 2013.
  9. That paint job is truly breathtaking.Well done old chum,be proud of that.Very proud.

    Model Paint vs Hardware Store Paint

    I've used Berger gloss and undercoat several times,airbrushed and hairy sticked,with no problems and good results.The same stuff as I've used on skirting boards and doors,same tins in fact.I haven't fully explored emulsion paint yet but my local hardware shop will mix shades to order and have a paint chip scanning facility for colour matching.
