  1. Nice to have you back. I’ve missed my regular instalments of modelling genius...

    F-4M/K Phantom II RFI - Matchbox 1/72

    That conjures up images I really don’t need in my head at this time in the morning... do you have a shelf over the bath or a table at the side? Love the Phantom. I think my it may kickstart my mojo to build another Airfix version when it is released later this year!

    Kids and the future of modelling

    As a parent, I ran a model club at my daughter's primary school for a few years until a change of job made it all but impossible. The school provided some starter kits and basic tools for the first term and then the kids were encouraged to continue with a model of their choice for the rest of the year (parents were quite chuffed as it added an option for a Christmas present). At the end of the each year we staged a model competition with the teachers choosing their favourite model (without knowing who had built it) and clubbing together to provide a small prze for the winner. Both me and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it and we managed to get away without having a teacher present in the room although there was always one close by. If anyone has the chance to do this I would heartily recommend it as it is is great for the mojo and there is nothing better to remind us why we all started this hobby in the first place than to see a youngster proudly pointing out their orange and blue striped Spitfire to even prouder parents!

    Convair B-36 Peacemaker - Revell 1/72

    Looks stunning but I think I'd start wearing a hard hat when you walk underneath her!

    Brilliant - another Mossie and I'm in early this time.

    Mosquito PR IV - Finished

    Lovely and, as I was expecting, about ten times better than my attempt!

    You mean you’re not flying in it??

    Convair B-36 Peacemaker - Revell 1/72

    Sorry I’m a little late... but I have been following from the beginning. Your natural metal finish looks superb. I even watched Stategic Air Command last night to see how accurate your model was - I reckon it’s actually better than the models used in the film! I did show Mrs BtM the pictures - particularly the one with the Stirling - she was impressed but unfortunately I can’t actually publish what she said when I suggested one would look good in the spare room but it can be summed up as ‘NO’!!

    1/48 B-70A

    I think I am going to enjoy this build. Had you thought of making a stand for it and using it as a coffee (or dining) table??

    Driving in France

    I’ve already had the pleasure of a French speeding ticket in a hire car a couple of years ago but thanks for the reminder!

    Going Dover to Calais and then down to Disneyland (haven’t looked in a map for that bit yet!) Thanks to all for the information and advice.

    Driving in France

    We are driving down to Disneyland In Paris in October and I was wondering if there was anything special I needed to carry in the car (other than the family!) It is a long time since I took my own car to Fance (20+ years) but I vaguely remember that you needed a hazard triangle and spare bulbs but I am not sure if that is still the case, if you need anything else of if I was dreaming in the first place. Any advice would be great fully received as ever. Brian

    MH 60 Academy SeaHawk. 1/35 scale.

    I think you have missed the low pressure oil feed pipe to the centrifugal wingding on the port engine. I really can’t believe the level of detail that you are achieving on this build.
