  1. This year's Elgin Modelfair is fast approaching and is the "Premier Model Exhibition in the North of Scotland". It takes place in the Elgin Town Hall on the 3rd and 4th November with doors opening on both days at 10am, closing at 5pm on Saturday and 4pm on Sunday. Adult admission per day is £5, children £3, concession £4 with a Family ticket costing £12. A weekend ticket is also available for £7.50 each person. BlackMike Models will be attending again this year and if last year was anything to go by it'll be a fun weekend with lots to see. For more information visit the organisers website at www.elginmodelrailwayclub.co.uk Duncan B

    Last chance for pre-orders. I'm sorting out the stock that I'll be taking right now with an eye to loading the van tomorrow morning so it's time Gentlemen please! Duncan B

    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    Being lazy, I checked the decal box first. No joy so a full on deep dive into the stash was required. After much rummaging and opening of long forgotten kit boxes (I had to open them all because it would have been rude not to!) I found the kit containing the Mask set. PC can rest assured knowing he won't have to cut tiny pieces of masking tape for his Dornier. All I've got to do now is put this lot back the way it came out! It doesn't look like a lot in the picture but was 12 of those plastic boxes plus another 4 smaller ones (and that still left another 5 of the plastic ones still in the cupboard. I think I'll be on the next series of "Death Hoard, the extreme collectors". Duncan B

    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    I am just stepping into the stash. I may be quite some time! I know I have one so all I've got to do is find it. This is the fun part, I get to rummage through boxes that haven't seen the light of day in many years only to discover that it is actually in my decals box which is on a shelf right beside my desk (it's not the finding, it's the thrill of the hunt).

    Do you have a lot of small bulldogs in need of clipping? (just thought I'd get in there before the usual comedians) Duncan B (I wish I could play some Bullfrog Blues clips!)

    As I used to like to point out to my Australian co-workers, there's no difference except for the Vegemite's bad attitude. I never did figure out why those guys didn't like me though! Duncan B

    Doh! My spelling seems to be getting worse. I blame all the predictive Texas on these electronic contraceptions. Duncan B (never knowingly having choked on a chock)

    A very worthy use of the space. I hope the sale goes well and will have to try to pop over and see what I can be tempted by. Duncan B

    No chance, a gherkin once tried to kill me!! The tiny cucumber/terrorist got stuck in my throat and I damned near chocked to death. A rather large chap gave me multiple thumps on my back as I watched the world getting very small and very dark and eventually the killer gherkin shot across the mess deck! Duncan B

    Yellow Piant mix for U.S. navy biplanes wings

    I can recommend the Colourcoats colours. These paints are the reason I have become hooked on making yellow wings era USN Aircraft! Here's one I made earlier as they say! All the colours (including the roundels) with exception of the silver are from the Colourcoats range of paints. www.sovereignhobbies.co.uk is the home of Colourcoats Duncan B

    Cake? Duncan B
  12. Very nice as always. Hasegawa seem to have a habit of getting the decals wrong, I have a 1/32 G10 box where both the decal options are actually for ERLA Built G10s. Duncan B

    Rollie goes doodlebug hunting

    Hi Josip, thanks for your tip. I had intended doing as you suggested but ran out of interest in this one and just wanted to get it off my modelling table and into the display cabinet. i will experiment with some scrap plastic next time I have the airbrush fired up. Duncan B

    PM me, I think I might be able to help you out with your quest for a Nimrod! (I presume it's an Airfix 1/72 Nimrod sub hunter you are talking about?). Duncan B
