  1. Visited east Kirkby today , and picked up a secondhand airfix 1/48 walrus……..which was nice. Even better when I opened it to discover it had some eduard sets and some resin wheels!
  2. Its actually a really nice kit other than the rivets. i quick pass with vallejo putty and a coat of mr surfacer and things look alot better. Would have been great if it hadnt have had them in the first place though.
  3. Whatever they make i hope they put the riveting tool away.
  4. Mine came today from hannants. its kind of a mixed mag. Theres some really nice detailed parts but the kit is spoiled a bit by the rivet detail which is way overdone. It should all be better under a coat of mr surfacer , buts its more work. It doesnt help that the finished model will be silver. It is nice to have a 1/32 Vampire though.
  5. Spending £550 on the border Lancaster....
  6. The Gripen looks tiny , must be like a real sportscar for the pilot!
  7. I think Nigel says it wont fit , and i also think its a bit flatter in profile.
  8. Bravo , beautiful photos. I love them all . Didnt realise there were 3 wasps airworthy. The Seafire is beuatiful.
  9. Yes...I did have both wingleader books , but after getting fed up with my HK lancaster i sold the kit and the books , telling myself i wouldnt build another 1/32 lancaster. I then caved in and bought the Border kit............but no longer have the books! D'oh! Curse my butterfly mind. How i make decisions on a daily bases is anyones guess !
