  1. Watching with interest, as me and the Missus are currently sat in the garden trying to design our new garden room/work room etc. Rick.
  2. Hendon it was! Changed quite a bit since my last visit. Well worth the visit. Cheers all. Rick.

    I'm down here for "Lost Evenings" till the 20th. Anything model related down here? Anything else worth seeing? Rick.
  4. After contacting Jadlam a new clear sprue arrived safely in the return post. Excellent service, as usual! I also purchased the 3D Kits World cockpit set too. Looking forward to this build! Rick.
  5. The undercarriage legs on mine seem to be fine. I will contact Jadlam about a replacement clear sprue though, I'm not too happy about the cracked side screen. Rick.
  6. Mine look fine, but there's a small crack on one of the side panels. Hmmm. I may try for a replacement, but it'll probably disappear under some Klear. Rick.
  7. Mine was on the mat when I got home! Thanks Jadlam! Rick.
  8. Brilliant Q! This is the reason I hang out on BM! BTW, no idea, never noticed if there's a difference after about 1.2million miles of driving many different cars. But I will say, I tend to change both at the same time anyway and I don't have much success with cheap ones. Rick.
  9. Vallejo is really nice and smooth if used with W&N Flow Improver. It does need a good key though, or it can rub off until fully sealed. I avoid MRP as it's like gnats pee and doesn't cover well. I know that may raise a few hackles, just my own experience with a 1/35 tank. It's fine if airbrushed over a similar colour Tamiya (that's thinned with lacquer thinner). But then you may as well just use Tamiya.... Rick.
  10. BBMF. Left Gloucester about 40mins ago. Sounded wonderful! Rick.
  11. Pick and mix from the vinyl and CD collection!
  12. Visited one in Malvern and two in Cheltenham yesterday. Thankfully vinyl here is very much alive and kicking and the turntable has never not been used! Rick.
  13. Various, Record Store Day! Too much money spent.... Rick.

    Interesting reading. I've just checked my purchase history and have seen I hardly ever use Ebay anymore. I guess it's time to move on and cancel my account. PayPal was the only safety net for me (Well, it isn't great, but better than them having my bank details). Thanks for the Heads-up guys, one less thing to worry about. Rick.

    The Weather,

    I live in Upton-upon-Severn. Nuff said... Rick.
  17. Keep up the good work Frank! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-55634508 Rick.
  18. Heng Long Tiger 1 upgraded metal Chassis from Forgebear Tanks! Torsion bar suspension too! Guess I'll be busy for a few days... Rick.
  19. Having used the TomTom for a few months now I can honestly say it works fine, but.... It's flaky at times and has had to have a couple of factory resets. There was a big update about a month ago and it has now settled down somewhat. Most of the vehicles I drive have the ability to mount my phone and use Google maps too. Most of the time they choose the same route and give similar timings. TomTom does tend to pick up the traffic sooner than Google though. In hindsight, I would have spent the extra £80 and got the TomTom with built in SIM card. Most of the issues stem from Bluetooth connection tech. TBF, Bluetooth has been a terrible throughout it's life anyway and should be avoided at all cost! Oh, a note on TomTom support, terrible! The information to get it to work was via the community, not TomTom themselves. Cheers chaps. Rick.
  20. R3DNO53! https://fr24.com/R3DNO53/2662dc09 Rick YEAH!!!!
  21. Blimey, that's odd! You can get the pods anywhere over here. All the main brands sell their own. Even Tesco's have a good selection. Cheers for all your suggestions chaps. I'll make a decision tomorrow. Rick.
  22. Thanks Chaps. I've not taken the plunge yet, but will soon based on all your suggestions. Nice one, I'll try this if needed. Rick.
  23. Oh Man! These are good! Keep em coming Chaps! Rick.
  24. You've got to post it on here if it's good! That's the deal! Rick.
