  1. I'm glad you've produced replacement parts for the exhausts, a must have in my opinion. What were Airfix thinking about when they moulded those stepped horrors? This is a great remedy for easily the worst feature of the Airfix Phantom kit. Duncan B

    Iwata Hi Line HP-CH

    Carlo, I have the exact airbrush you are asking about and I model very much similar subjects to yourself and use the same paints. I use the HP-CH for 90% of my work including mottling on 1/72 Luftwaffe subjects. I also have an Iwata Custom Micron CM-C+ which cost a lot more than the HP-CH but I rarely use it as I find the Hi-Line can handle most of the jobs I want to do. I would happily recommend the Hi Line to you and think you will not be disappointed. I do not sell these products but am a very satisfied user of Iwata airbrushes. Duncan B

    East Riding of Yorkshire Model Show, 2nd September 2018

    I'm looking forward to attending the Show for the first time. A lovely part of the country to visit, hopefully your rain dance will be successful. As an aside, I will only have 2 tables on this occasion so will be bringing a limited stock however if anyone wants to see a particular kit from stock let me know and I'll bring it along. Duncan B
  5. Sounds like an interesting place to visit, show or not. Duncan B

    A boy called Sue, or Lesley or Marion or even Yvonne?

    My Boss when I worked in the Netherlands was a bloke called Anne (pronounced Annie) Jan Wind, he was Head of Engineering at the Firm. My Missus is Anne too but she knows nothing about engineering! Duncan B

    Telford 2018

    Not if I have my way, I'm trading at the Glasgow Show this year so will be trying to liberate some of that "Telford" money from him (and everyone else) Duncan B

    Today’s the day! IPMS Avon Show - Sunday 5 August 2018

    Looks like a great Show Duncan B
  10. That's a cracker, lovely. Duncan B
  11. That looks fantastic, really subtle weathering and wear. The HobbyBoss 1/48 Wildcats are lovely kits to make and are as cheap as chips. Duncan B

    1/48 Brewster B339 Buffalo

    I have to agree with the others, the colours look very good to me. You have done a great job on this kit, I presume it is the Tamiya kit? I will be tackling one very shortly but it will be built as a US Navy one. Duncan B

    Totally agree, our minds are more than capable of making up nightmare scenarios without the help of the Internet. Take each day as it comes and keep busy, there is no point worrying about something that is out of one's control anyway (much easier to say than to do but it is worth aiming for). Duncan B

    Yes that relief is quite a feeling, I bet you feel a whole lot lighter now. I had a similar scare earlier this year when my dentist told me I had something suspicious on my tongue. I had to wait 3 months for a referral, trying not to worry all the while. Turns out I have a condition called "Geographic Tongue" which sounds amusing and is, thankfully, totally harmless (if you discount 3 months stress and worry before diagnosis). It is a reminder not to take anything for granted and to enjoy every single day. Duncan B

    Condor 1/48 He178

    Nice job Derek. I tried building a 1/72 scale one a few years ago and didn't manage to finish it as the parts were so badly fitting. Duncan B
