    The exact same conclusion that I drew Noel...…………..good luck with your build

    1/48 resin Gannet AEW3

    They were two completely different airframes, no way would a Gannet AS1-4 canopy fit a AEW3...…………...that's like trying to fit a Spitfire Mk9 canopy to a Spitfire Mk 24

    Hannants using my Sage 2 model is this normal for them?

    I disagree with you!!! I have posted material on the internet which has been copied/infringed...………………….once its copied and used by the perpetrators, that too stands a strong chance of being copied also, which in turn gets copied and so a vicious cycle continues, so much so, that NOBODY knows where it came from and who is the original owner...…………………...once you post anything in the public domain, you stand a strong chance of loosing it...……………….numerous photos of mine appear on Pinterest, duplicated over and over again by different people...………..I have had people ask me if they can use a photo or two for their club site or enthusiasts club...…………...only to find that those photos appearing world wide...…………...as I said earlier, I stopped publishing my photos about 5 years ago and still, when I use Google for research they appear before me

    This may give you some idea...……………...I suspect the crew are playing for the camera, but, I could be wrong...……………………..

    Hannants using my Sage 2 model is this normal for them?

    I have posted many photos on this forum and other domains over the years and been surprised to find my photos appearing on Google/Pinterest and many sites without credit, links or reference. At that moment in time I did not realise(as has been pointed out in a previous thread)it was open to public abuse. I have no issue with my material being saved and used by people personally on their computer, but when it used "worldwide" and credited to other people, I tend to draw a line. But what can I do? It was posted in public domain and is open to be violated by all wanting to. Since finding this out a few years ago, I have not posted any photos on the internet and especially this site, even if you post low resolution photos, their is software available to make good low res...……..so remember, unless you want your photos to go viral, think twice before posting

    Airfix Advent Calender - it’s back for 2018

    This thread, over the years has been a very popular thread to follow, in fact, looking back...……………….. by now this thread would be on page 10 or more with speculation, moans and groans...………….All I see is disappointment and people not taking any interest in the wonderful Christmas treats that Airfix are about to reveal on a daily basis……..Airfix really do not want an Advent Calendar do they? Shows in the amazing surprises as each day is crossed off

    Still buying 2nd hand kits at model shows?

    I am with Admiral Puff...…..seeing as we are both 72, I tried to stop buying about 5 years ago, but, have not succeeded...………..my stash is small, between 60-80 models(and still growing!) I go to shows intending to buy a model or 2 but for the last couple of years or more I notice my money goes on gimmicks such as rivet makers, special drills, the latest innovation in plastic glue, even replaced a lot of my worn out tools at last show, new snips, files, mitre board, cutting mat...….need to add an Airfix 1/48 Hunter to my stash, plus clear prop Gloster "Squrt" once they appear in the UK...………….then I think that will be it - unless temptation gets a hold of me...…………………..I personally think its an age/generation thing...…………..the older you get the less you are interested in, the younger you are, the more you need

    annealing photo etch

    I just turn to my gas cooker...…………….turn one of the hobs on and watch for the colour change...………...been doing it for over 30 years without problems...………….as above, I always use insulated pliers
  11. Well said John, about time mention was made of speculation not just this kit but many more that have recently been released in the past, Canberras and Phantoms spring to mind. I have been waiting to see a question asking for tyre pressures of various aircraft or what colour are the socks that the pilots wearing or likely to wear!!!!……………...I feel at times this site drifts way past the enjoyment of a modelling site into a technician site...………..I read a thread on sabre wings yesterday relating to air flow over various parts of the wing which tended to remind me of "Open University"...……..did my head in!!!!! I see none of this on other modelling sites...………...I look on this site as a Technicians site...………….I just build and look at reviews

    Airfix Advent Calender - it’s back for 2018

    Its not such a tease as previous years is it? Seems like they had to put something up as its expected of them and so they reluctantly put something up
  13. I thought it tongue in cheek also...………...bit like a text message if read wrong, umbridge taken

    Hornby Group (airfix's owners) half-yearly results

    Only by a small minority of people interested in 1/24 scale and then again, only by modellers interested in Hellcats and prepared to part with a very large amount of money...…………….I think they need to do better to catch the interested mainstream modellers
