    Covid Jab

    My dad has jab his tomorrow (Monday). According to the mob in Edinburgh he's in category 4, whilst I'm in category 6. I await my blue envelope in bated anticipation!! On a light hearted note I've discovered that Glaswegians say "jag" not "jab" when they refer to getting a vacination. Up here in NE Scotland we've always said jab! Is there anywhere else in Scotland that says jag rather than jab? Mike.
  4. Judging from the latest Hannants e-mail newsletter I'd say that a bit of frustration is setting in. It does appear that the postal and courier systems are struggling with the change in relationship between the UK and EU to the extent that things are being returned or just plain disappearing. Doesn't look like they're going to risk taking orders from EU based customers until things settle down. Mike.

    What's your avatar?

    I change mine every so often, I think this is my fourth since I joined BM. It's Jean Bart from a mobile game called Azur Lane which is incredibly silly but quite fun to play! Her in game form: Her base art - that glare is very French, IMHO! Mike.
  6. I'll agree with Mark that the rearview mirror is a small thing makes all the difference - it just finishes the model off nicely. Mike.
  7. Very nice indeed, that's another kit to be added to the "to buy" list! I've been waiting for a decent IIb ever since buying "Hurricanes over Singapore" by Brian Cull and Paul Sortehaug when it came out. Mike.

    Airfix 2021...

    The two highlights for me are the twin stage Mossie and the K2 ambulance. I'm happy enough with that. Mike.
  9. Looks like I'm definitely going to have to get a few of these Airfix Spitfire Vc's! The only quibble I have with it is the shape of the spinner for the DH prop, it seems a bit too bulbous for the Malta and RAAF aircraft. Mike.
  10. Depends on what your screen shows - on my phone they look darker, on the PC, lighter. However the Mirage IIIB sheet I can Mk.1 eyeball and on that the IDF and SAAF markings are too light. Both blues should be darker and richer in tone than what Modelsvit provide. I have the 1/72 Isradecal Mirage IIIB/C decal sheet so for an Israeli aircraft I'm sorted but since I wanted to do the SAAF IIIB option the kit's "on hold" for the moment. Mike.
  11. That's certainly an odd claim - I have a copy of that photo in one of my books and Barham's definitely not in camo. Mike.
