  1. Not strictly true that comment https://www.whiteensignmodels.com/
  2. 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)
  3. 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
  4. 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.

      Don't look at it as loosing a relationship but gaining modelling time!

    Interesting Photo

    I thought P-40 too, it does look to have a greenhouse type canopy like a P-40N and the rudder shape is about right

    Interesting Photo

    Maybe it's just me due to having AdBlockPlus and Noscript etc running but i don't see the specific photo you mention, just a gallery of images I think i found the one you refer to, it's no 99 of 111
  7. A few more added Arii 1/32 '58 Daihatsu Midget '67 Fairlady 2000 Airfix 1/24 Aston Martin DB5
  8. Add another Doyusha 1/24 Aston Martin DB5 to the mix, can't share pics as copyrighted and cannot find pics elsewhere. It's a racing type model with ABS body, metal chassis and parts and rubber tyres. Here's link to item i spotted http://lascm.com/Slot-Car-Museum/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=6692
  9. Should have used the Revell Trabant 601 Universal kit, paint over the rear windows to make it look like a van and apply some letter decals for Trotter Independent Trader signage. Never mind it not being a 3 wheeler.
  10. No plastic kit of Robin Reliant available, there has been a suggestion made to Revell which they have accepted but it needs support before we can hope to get one. Here is the link to go to to give support, only 125 likes so far http://ideas.revell.de/ideas/item/4891/
  11. Just added the 1/16 Revell VW Karmann Ghia to the stash so the 1/16 Italeri Mercedes 300SL Cabrio don't look out of place. Am in a bit of a dilemma as to what next though to join them, 1/16 Revell VW Beetle or wait for the 1/16 VW Samba Bus? Update with pics of latest purchases
  12. Just got the Italeri 1/16 Mercedes Benz 300SL Cabrio today which is probably a repackaged Revell 1/16 kit. I haven't found a 1/16 cabrio older than the Revell so anyone know the kit origins? The shell has similarities with the Gakken Gullwing but thats where the similarities end, all the sprues are laid out differently so cannot be based on that kit.
  13. Italeri 1/16 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Cabrio just arrived today, the largest car in my stash now.
  14. I would doubt if it'll be totally new tool but could be. I'd assume they would use as many parts from their Honda S800 kit as they could with new tool Honda S600 parts where required
