  1. Looks great. How is the kit? I had the mcfarlane figures one a while ago but i always fancied building this. I love Sleepy Hollow , its where i got my username from!
  2. I just got the airfix 1/48 canberra with a view to doing the grey and dayglo t4. I know that the kit has mistakes , but it will be easy enough to fit another seat alongside the pilot and add an extra control column , but how different is the nose profile compaired to the T4 please? Thanks
  3. This arrived in the post today. Lovely!
  4. I just received a Minicraft 1/72 Martin mariner from ebay , from the US. No customs either!! whoop whoop
  5. The strange thing is , when i build Sci fi kits i always build them the the landing gear up , but planes with the UC down!
  6. Theres some here https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/martin-pbm-5a-mariner/nasm_A19730270000
  7. Thanks Guys. I have started the Tamiya p-38 and thats a sublime kit , but they are just quicker to build and easier to store than 1/32 1/24
  8. This lockdown situation gave me a little more time to do some modelling. I have given up on 1/32 and 1/24 i think. I keep buying them , then loads of aftermarket , starting them , getting bored with them and selling them on. Time for a change. I want to build good quality models , that actually fit on a shelf. I will not be using aftermarket if i can help it. I have been getting more into the Pacific Theatre and so have decided to go with planes from that. I will be sticking to Accurate miniatures or italeri , Tamiya and Hasegawa. I really dont have the patience for poor fitting kits anymore. This kit has really bought the fun back into modelling. Beautifully detailed and easy to build. I have a great time just building from the box. The problem is i think i need the rest of the F4U line now! Apologies for pics i took them on my Iphone
  9. Nope creative models in cambs.
  10. Ok thanks. It must have been done at the factory as the decals were in a sealed bag.
  11. I have just received a hobbyboss 1/48 hellcat and the pictures on the box have had the rising sun kill marks scribbled out. The same goes for the decals which is really annoying. Now I can understand the swastica , but now the rising sun??
  12. bad isn’t it. He has zero feedback I have 2300 odd all positive. They are so geared towards buyers it’s redicilous
