      Thanks Troy, Yes it is the same me.

      Neil has edited and deleted some of his posts to my search for a TR33 conversion, guess I'm not getting one from him.

      The site puts candles next to your name now if there is birthday listed,  as I was meaning to tidy up my messy posting on recce Hurricanes,(not my best work!)  I noticed them, wondered, checked and thought it might be a neat thing to do, seems it was :)

       

      Hope the Hurricane info was use,  I must see if Dave Wadman aka tango98,  has done any more with his Hurricane project... he told me that had 1.5 TB of data!   

      Enjoy your day

  6. Note, the Italeri Il-2 Shturmovik,  is a reboxed of the Accurate Miniatures kit, (and has been reboxed by Eduard, Academy and Revell)  

    Not as good as the Tamiya, but pretty good nonetheless.

    It can be tricky to assemble, 

    see here 

     some of the scheme in the Italeri kit maybe cobblers too,  the kit is this variant but metal winged,

  10. Hi Vadim

     

    this is where I left a posting about IPMS Mid Sussex,  looks like it's dropped off the page,   which  is why you couldn't find it (and I can't) though you may be able to  see further back.
