  1. Aye up Wez, Tamiya do a very nice 1/48th Firefly Ic which can be had for around the 20 to 25 quid mark. Plastic Soldier Company do Vc Firefly's in 1/72nd which are not too pricey. 2 per box I think and are intended for war gaming so detail is a bit basic. Nice models can result with a bit of work though. Regards Steve

    Aye up Martin, Hoping your on the mend and on the way to making a full recovery. If you get to the Hudders/Halifax show next Feb we will have to meet up for coffee and a natter. Regards Steve

    My dad used to have a 1275 Traveller in metallic purple. Once took 7 of us plus a small dog and luggage on the roof to Skegness! Gawd knows how it managed it

    On the Elland Road Interchange yesterday was a rather large bright red Ferrari. Did some googling and it was a Ferrari FF. Don't generally like Ferrari's but this was rather nice! Tend to see a fair few Tesla's down that way too. Regards, Steve

    Aye up. I believe that the overalls were black and a black beret for Royal Tank Regiment crews. Hussars wore a beret that was a deep cherry red in colour. The RTR wore a coloured cravat that identified which squradron. Cant remember what the colours were though. Im sure someone with more knowledge than me will provide the right answer. Nice work so far. Regards. Steve

    BBC Drama headline (didn't believe it!)

    If its not on over Chrimbo i reakon it will be Easter next year. Chances are they'll still be busy doing the CGI jiggery pokery bits. Looks like the time period has been moved from Victorian to Edwardian too by the looks of the soldiers uniforms.... Regards. Steve

    After a fair bit of research I went for a Nextbase 512gw. As Gorby said, they are easy to fit and remove due to the power going to the mount and not the camera. Some good deals on at the moment hence why I got it Regards Steve
