    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    This may help clarify B2 OR B2A................or in fact only increase confusion ............ https://www.pprune.org/archive/index.php/t-258880.html

    Vacuformed canopies turned yellow....

    Check out suggestions mentioned on this site 8 years ago..........................
  4. Hmmmmmmm quality over quantity.................be very, very careful? I notice that as each build progresses your becoming very fussy? You will find something you dont like about the kit and scratch build a part...........Oh, you already have? You started on the Vulcan with the intakes and before you knew it, you were chopping and changing parts all over the kit. Its happening more and more on your builds, your gaining experience and before long, mark my words, people will be asking you for advice Your getting to know all about using your Airbrush, how to make decals, "Gloop".................the list is endless...........nice to see you asking for advice, using it and actually photographing your build to show people step by step that your using that advice given to you. Those photos are helpful to many modellers, new modellers coming into the hobby as reference for when they come to build that kit...........so, in a way, you are already passing on advice to fellow members. Well done
  5. Keep up the good work, the problem with my builds is I have lost interest and prefer to watch people with enthusiasm building, I have a 1/35 Accurate Armour Humber 1 ton with a 25 pounder and limber on the go, 1/35 Firing Line lightweight Land rover, various Centurion Tanks, Saladin, !/25 KFS daimler ferret............and many more, mustnt forget the !/48 RAF Sabre plus the Frog Gannet with a wingfold going on, plus 2 1/48 Wyvens, one with wingfold, one without...all on the go................mojo slide away, but I do enjoy watching various builds. I am retired now, so I think its having ALL THE TIME in the world to build kits which may have done it. I am not a river counter, but I can spend hours modifying a kit, just havent the patience to paint them............well, keep building, I need something to read and follow

    More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    new members who want to buy and sell on this site and are aware that they are unable to until they have reached 100 posts(I think) All of a sudden that persons icon appears like machine gun bullets down the side of the page..........I noted about 8 earlier on - one after the other and to reach their magic number they put anything in a post to get that magic number up............one word or two is the sentence that they can string together........one post will say "nice" the next post will say "Brill" next post will say "incredable" next post "brilliant paint job" and it continues..........all these posts posted as I said like machine gun bullets - all the space of 5 minutes...................I find it insincere and patronising........all for the sake of getting there post quota up
  7. Think I am a little slower............I am building a wing fold for a gannet, in that time, hes built those four, plus a Vulcan!!!!!!! Well done

    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    Still going to be a lot cheaper than the Aeroclub Vulcan(I think the last sold for about £250 to someone in the USA).........and it will also upset a few collectors of that kit If it is 1/48 we may start to see Aeroclub vacuform Vulcans creeping onto various auction sites

    High Speed Siver

    I used to post photos on here at one time, but stopped when I accidently came across some which had been stolen and posted on various websites worldwide.............its quiet a shock when you type in searching for an item and when the results appear, you see a completely different web site, hosting your pictures

    KFS 1:24 Land Rover Series 2A Ambulance

    I still have 3 KFS kits in my stash also, just finishing the Ferret and about to start the half ton lightweight Land Rover. Now when I drove these Land Rover Ambulances in BAOR and Northern Ireland I recollect all the side and rear windows were tinted black...............possibly a black marker pen may get you out of trouble. Does Howard mention in his instructions that they should be tinted?
  13. Tools...............sell the tools to anybody wanting to buy into or adding to their range. It happened with Frog(Novo and others), Airfix(dapol have many of their tools)and a number of American companies long since gone. Many of the tools for Rover they were shipped out to the Far East(MG Springs to mind and plenty of other brand logos)......I watched the low loaders taking as much machinery out the works as they could
  14. Sound very much like asset strippers to me.............

    Books or Magazines?

    Hi - Their was a time I used to buy 4-5 magazines at a time, thats when they were cheap, but your doing the right things, no brand loyality.......I dont go by the cover as usually, the inspiration that gave you the insentive to buy it, may only be a 2-3 page article. i tend to BROWSE in the shop at that very moment and assess whether its of use to me............I can now go 3-4 months without buying a mag which means at todays prices means I save about £20 and I can buy a book or two with more flesh on it..........I try to ovoid cheap book shops, such as "The Works" usually they are reprints on inferior paper and some of the photos are very, very blurred, so, I check out Ebay for an original. If you want tips........tips on anything(not just to do with modelling)your friend is Youtube............you actually get to SEE how to carry out the action, not by one person, but many, many persons who think their method is quicker and easier than the previous person and you can try ALL the actions out and chose which you think suits your style, I learnt soldering, painting, airbrushing, white metal casting, resin casting, ................you name it, its on their, also, as an aside, learnt how to repair misted headlamps on a car, wallpapering ceilings, wiring a house, plumbing, carpentry....................................its a mine of invaluable information................just type in what your interested into the search bar and a mine of information unfolds in front of you - just to give you an idea...................I types in painting canopies and heres the result - Good Luck
