  1. My copy of this kit arrived a couple of days ago, almost completing my Conqueror line up. Having built four Amusing Hobby kits I've found they go together very nicely, the tracks being easiest I've ever put together. Can't wait to start this new one.
  2. I did say LOOKS light years ahead, certainly in terms of detail. It can't be any worse than the old iteration, which was not a pleasant build to say the least. The original moulds were lost/damaged, so there could never be another production run, so yes, it really needed a new mould. It's a significant aircraft in British aviation history, along with that of South Africa.
  3. Another of Airfix's new releases that will be finding it's way to Chez Haskell. Can't wait, Will be building it for my Dad, as he flew in one with Jim Mollison, (Amy Johnson's husband).
  4. Well, I wasn't going to buy any more kits, but this has hit the spot, big time. Will definitely be having this. It certainly looks light years ahead of the old offering.
  5. At last, what a fabulous looking ship and kit this is. Thanks for the review.
  6. @Norseman 3:16 I really couldn't say now. It's been a while since I reviewed them. Knowing Hobbyboss, the only difference will be in the decals. As to the price difference, that's a strange one and can;t tell you the reason why.
  7. MiniArt do a couple of sets with Harley Davidson WA's
  8. You leave the Fleet Air Arms premier fighter squadron alone. Better than being a jumper tucker. 🤪
  9. I really couldn't answer that, unless Italeri missed it off.
  10. One of my bigger lockdown builds. This turned out to be more of a problematic build than I had expected. The starboard hull was short shot on the lower bow which was fun to fill and shape. Used Eduards etch set for it and also the Eduard German ensign. The length of the hull made it a real problem when sanding and painting. Otherwise a surprisingly fun build once the hull was sorted.
  11. Welcome Dan. Whereabouts in Surrey?
  12. Thanks Terry. We were behind the Panther. Yes it is Atlantic models HMS Leopard as reviewed here.
  13. @Tony Whittingham I found the scheme in Coastal Forces book on Vospers. Many thanks for the nice replies. Sorry, no, I didn't do a WiP but will do on my next one.
  14. Many thanks Richard, I went for the dark grey as it seemed more suitable than the white specified in the instructions.
