  1. I've just bought one myself and will be following your tips and tricks!
  2. Tom, did you forget to finish this again mate! I've been waiting for the updates!
  3. I had to bin myself mine, they were OOR and a bit water damaged I think.
  4. Standard in so much as it's different from a Wallace so I'm lead to believe, the Wallace PV6 was converted from the Westland Wapiti to serve a purpose which was to fly over Everest. The modifications included a different engine and prop to scrabble at the hugely thinner air at that height and a pressurised cabin for the observer but not the pilot as the most noticeable. The production/converted Wallace were different again in being armed etc. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westland_Wallace
  5. I don't think it ever did come to anything due to the deadening silence! Never mind, it was a nice thought. Coincidently does anyone know how much a sheet would cost to commission and if it would be financially viable to get some run off?
  6. Literally thread resurrection! Did this ever come to anything? I've just started a PJ Productions T.7 conversion and would love to do it in the Blue Diamonds scheme.
  7. I'd prefer to support Airfix and ensure they profit to reinvest into new kits then lining the pockets of some scalper.
  8. If you listen carefully you can hear their tears now! Absolutely despise scalpers and everything they represent.
  9. Well it is 2020 so I'm expecting a 1/32nd Hughes Spruce Goose to be announced at any point soon.
  10. It's green I believe, Armstrong Whitworth Siskin very similar as an example! There are a couple of other aircraft that have black uppers such as the Fairey III, Bristol 138, Westland Wallace etc and as far as I know it was often used on FAA aircraft such as the Blackburn Shark etc.
  11. Neil, I'm not questioning whether Mike and Co have been in Comms with HKM merely that it's going to take a huge amount of pre orders before any company is going to be willing to invest the vast sums of money required for a completely new tooling, no matter how badly needed it may be. A decent case in point being the Airfix Nimrod, people had said for years what a bestseller it would be, a year or two after launch and even up until a year or two ago you could pick them up for less than £18.
  12. I honestly think you'd have more luck trying to get Airfix to commit to up-scaling the new Buccaneer kits!
  13. Not included in the voting list but a Fairey Fox Mk.1?
  14. A few more nearly at the finish post! Frog DH.60 & Bristol 138 and a Matchbox Swordfish. The sharp eyed will note that the 138 is awaiting the decals to be sun bleached and it's main wheels attaching whilst the Swordfish is missing it's torpedo, lewis gun, windshield and tailwheel which are all waiting for me to add glue! Again not rigged but I'm working up to that and built mainly OOB less DH.60 roundels and the Swordfish decals . Painted with Halfords/Citadel rattle cans, Tamiya/Vallejo/Citadel/Revell airbrushed and brushed acrylics.
