  1. I personally refer to the list of paints on this website, no membership or login required http://www.exclusively-jaguar.co.uk/2016-news/january-2016-news/general-information/
  2. Another alternate history could be that the British re-engined the Spitfire for tests and found it was superior to the Merlin so reverse engineered and produced the DB engine in large numbers equipping many aircraft.
  3. I have Microsofts Windows Defender and Avast Anti-Virus running all the time, never an issue. I do the additional scans using Malwarebytes.
  4. Thats not right. One firewall but you can run as many anti-virus as you like. I have 2 anti-virus running at all times with no ill effect plus another i just use for scanning to be triple sure.
  5. Thing is you can run just one firewall at a time and multiple anti-virus programs. I certainly wouldn't ever just rely on one anti-virus program yet i do know some that do along with the standard MS firewall which only blocks infected traffic one way (inbound) supposedly. Bare minimum people need a firewall that blocks dodgy doings inbound and outbound, plus at least 2 AV programs running scans weekly.
  6. At least you can view it and can message over items you're interested in, i'm sure that section was unavailable to people with less than 100 posts at some point.
  7. It's on the toobar above message box where you write. B = Bold, I = Italic U with line underneath = Underline and S with a line through it = Strikethrough
  8. Now, if only they'd get around to releasing the 1/24 Renault Estafette
  9. VAT is usually payable on used goods when sold by a trader or company.
  10. Not strictly true that comment https://www.whiteensignmodels.com/
  11. Not been adding much to stash of late for various reasons but old habits die hard. These have been accumulated over several months. 1/24 Tamiya 24132 Nissan Skyline 2 door coupe GTS 25t Revell 07361 BMW Z1 Revell 07382 BMW Z8 Heller 80768 Citroen Fourgon Type H Heller 80760 Citroen Mehari Heller 80759 Renault 4 GTL 1/16 Heller 80795 Citroen DS 19 (60th Anniversary twin kit)
  12. They probably have but what gets forgotten is the company has been sold on several times since the moulds were made and each company thats bought Airfix seeks to recoup what they paid first and foremost. Pretty lucky i'd say that Airfix are releasing something other than Bf 109s, Fw 190s, P-51s, Spitfires, Lightnings, Harriers etc
  13. Am back after a hectic few months. 13 year relationship ended, moved house, got new job etc. All is going well at last.

      Glad to hear things have improved, it can be a long dark journey. I ended mine last year, it will get even better.
