  1. I feel duty bound to mention that N3180 flown by Al Deere did not have the completely half and half black/white undersides as shown in the Eduard instructions (and as also appeared in the old Airfix 1/24th scale kit), our research for the Southern Expo 2010 decal sheet unearthed a photo which shows the front under nose cowling and rear fuselage was silver. Easy enough to replicate as the markings are still OK.
  2. Sadly Southern Expo will be cancelled. It is not something we wanted to happen but as we've all noticed events have overtaken us. Farewell Hornchurch
  3. I'm not expecting a 2021 Southern Expo
  4. Dear all I'm pleased to announce the dates for the Southern Expo model show for 2020 Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March 2020 Sadly this will be our last show at Hornchurch as the centre we host in is being replaced with a new one which has a much smaller hall (half the size), we’ve looked for other suitable venues and at the moment haven’t been able to find anything, so we will be drawing the show to a close for the foreseeable future. The show will be held at the Hornchurch Sports Centre, Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, Essex, RM11 1JU 10am to 5pm Saturday & 10am to 4pm Sunday Entry: Adults £3.00, Children £1 & Senior Citizens £2 Open Competition (Sunday only) – the Senior competition is being sponsored by Models For Sale (http://www.modelsforsale.com) All proceeds will be donated to St Francis Hospice. The 2019 show raised a total of £3,000. For further details Visit the website at http://www.southernexpo.co.uk/ Or email us at SouthernExpo@tiscali.co.uk
  5. Indeed, sad news. Regis was always a familiar face at Southern Expo and the Nationals (Scale Modelworld). Always a pleasure to deal with him.
  6. That was the Spitfire I flew from Biggin Hill, totally worth the money if you can lay your hands on the cash. It was nearly 3 years ago and still have to pinch myself that it happened. Must re-watch the video they take of you in the back seat to remind myself.
  7. It was some years ago. Not that I'm trying to defend Xtracolour at all I would think if you've bought the paint in the last few years it should be OK
  8. It was a faulty batch of metallic paints as far as i know.
  9. There was a "dodgy" batch of Xtracolour metals which exploded on opening. A friend of mine had a similar experience when opening a tin of aluminium. Thankfully it was only the workbench that got hit.
  10. Great to see the decals we produced put to good use. Well done Must get around to producing some more at some stage, it might happen you never know
  11. Bison Decals did a set 1/35 Suez 1956 ( 1) - British Tanks -35119 http://www.olddogmodels.com/decals/735119-bison-decals-1-35-suez-1956-1-british-troops-35119.html (I have no connection with OldDogModels, it was found using Google looking for "Bison decals Suez") Cancel that just re-read your post, sorry no other information. You could try emailing the owner of Bison about any references he used - sales@star-decals.net
  12. Yep, Jays are the only place left. We sold out some time ago in both scales. We still have 1/32nd ones if any one is interested.
  13. We could only find a picture from the starboard side so couldn't confirm the code letter sizes for the port size, we provided both so the modeller could make their own mind up. http://samilitaryhistory.org/vol013dt.html This link above shows the code letters for the starboard side.
  14. They "might" have been inspired by the research we did for these decals we issued a few years ago but are now sold out except in 32nd scale. http://www.southernexpo.co.uk/images/2010Decals/Southern%20Expo%202010%20Decal%20placement%20sheet%203%20Spitfire%20Mk.IA%20K9953%20ZP.A%20+%20R6835%20XT.W%20Inst.jpg
  15. Hi Mark Those 3 are the only ones for the moment. There may be plans afoot to do a new sheet for the 2016 show, I will announce here as and when we have more information. We would certainly like to do more sheets it's just a matter of time for the research. The next release (if it happens!) is likely to be Battle of Britain time frame again). Hope this helps. Regards Peter
