  1. FAO the Moderators, I would like to ask if it is possible to announce a fund raising appeal on belhalf of an historic aviation memorial charity? If so, would you allow me to email or PM me more details please so that if permitted, it can be done within forum rules.
  2. Good job I hadn't read this at 3 am on a night shift- I'd have come to the same conclusion
  3. Of late, had a gaggle of military copters of late and the occasional flight in and out of Gamston airport, which is about 3 miles away. However I worked on a nightshift, finishing on the morning of the flypast for the 75th of the crew of "Mi Amigoes" at Sheffield. I didn't go to bed when I got home though, I stayed up for an hour or so to watch the form up.
  4. I thought about the Mk III for ease- but I'm thinking about the challenge of a Mk 1, using the Tamiya kit as a reference. (Ultimately I'd love to aquire a 1:1 T7 and back engineer it to a Mk Ior MkIII- but I can dream)
  5. I know it's not something thats out there yet to my knowledge, not so much a rumore - more of a subtle hint to the aftermarket manufacturers. Ok, I'm nutty about anything 616 sqn and as this year sees the 75th anniversary of the Sqn becoming the 1st to operate the type- I'd love to build something special to commemorate this. But would it be viable for someone out there to produce a conversion kit please.
  6. If you don't already know, a flypast of 10 military aircraft are due over Endcliff park at Sheffield in memory of the crew of B17 "My Amigo", which crashed 75 years ago with the loss of all 10 crew. It is due to fly over at 8:45 am.
  7. No not this one- to much of an aircraft preservation nut to do that. The worst thing I did was to play heads and tails with an empty aircraft pallet with a 10k Henley and come up tails.
  8. I know they're not up to days standards, but back in the 1980's they were my main choice for 1/48 scale aircraft. So I'd love to get the Devestator and AV8A Harrier for kick offs🖒
  9. Just asking if you would do Decals for a series of 626 sqn Spitfires & at what cost please?
  10. After a stint in the RAF as a Movs Controller (Movers to those in the know). In 2004 I took on a new & current career with Ambulance service. So instead of the logistics of loading C17's, C130's, VC10's & Tristars with freight and Passengers, I now load A&E ambulances with poorly people.🖒
  11. Oh how I keep threatening to scratch build a 1/24 lunar module🖒I have the old Monogram 1/48 one as a basis for taking measurements from.
  12. I don't see a problem with Airfix doing 1/35 scale from another manufacturer. In the late 1970's the released both 1/32 and 1/35 MV's. I built the Grant(1/32), Bedford QL gun portee and thier Dodge 1/35 MV kits- which I believe were by a company called Montex- all of which were marketed by Italeri. All the big names have done it over the 45 years I have been building kits. For me the only concern is that if they are from the Acadamy range, will the prices on par?
  13. There is a colour photo of a Gamston based T10 which was one of the decal options for the Italeri kit (coded Y7-J). This one appears not to have the over wing windows.
  14. Just read a list of 991 nominees for "the face" of the back of the new £50 note. A quick glance has revealed at least 3 aviation related. Sirs ;- Frank Whittle, Patrick Moore (Astronomer and RAF Navigator) and Stanley Hooker are all on the list🖒.
  15. I agree with what you say, but considering that the UK is still in austerity, the release of a new 1/24 SCALE kit shows that Airfix seem to have faith in a brighter future. I just hope that is the case, and we are seeing an upturn in fortunes. The effect of what happened to the Airfix US market in the early 1980's is something I don't wish to see again.
