  1. oh i don't know - not quite 100GBP on E-bay! Extra for decals if you want to build a USAF version!!!! Way too much for me, sadly. Is that a pre-release price or 'real' price - Anyone know? Jonny
  2. Yes, it is a shame the Gladiator has been relocated, and clearly not displayed as well as previously. The last time we visited Malta - in 1990, I think - I saw the Gladiator wings at Takali and one of the staff I chatted with seemed confident the fuselage would soon be transferred to Takali and stay there, thus creating a complete Gladiator. Takali is a SUPER Museum, I think, and like many 'smaller' ones the staff there are real enthusiasts and know about the exhibits. Progress, I suppose it's called! Jonny PS Sorry, I didn't mean to hijack a very g
  3. If you don't mind a little more travelling, don't forget Tangmere! Super museum with knowlegable volunteer staff. That's if you haven't already been ... . HTH, Jonny
  4. Very nice, too! There's me wondering what to do (tidy up my cave and sort out the stash, or actually start to build something), then there's you with these very nice models, COMPLETED! Well done, happy New Year! Thanks for sharing, too. Jonny
  5. Really super photos, AD210! Thanks LOTS for sharing them. Jonny
  6. You could do a lot worse than have a look at TonyOT's build of this kit in WiP. He started it December 14! Hope this helps, Jonny
  7. I've been 'promoted' - well, all of Hertfordshire has - to Tier 4 which appears to rule out my usual Early-New-Year Duxford visit. The last time I went the Stephenson hangar gallery was all closed up. Good to see PA474 there again. I'd like very much to see any more photos you care to share, AD210. Thanks for sharing these - really good ones! Jonny
  8. Kev67 ... Do you mean '3M 471 ...' ? I Googled the 'M3 ...' and the 'hits' were all for 3M, as indeed were the Ebay ones too. It looks good, I've just ordered a roll ... only 33 metres but should last a week or lots! Thanks for the tip. Jonny
  9. For what it's worth (not a lot, probably), after a day or three of 'NO 500' or other odd messages, today I've had 3 or 4 of the 500 ones. No big problem, just refresh and everything's normal. Weird or what? Jonny
  10. It's just happened again. 11:35-ish morning December 12. UPDATE, The posting appeared OK and a minute later I was out of BM, replaced by Google!
  11. To me too, unfortunately. I *think* I've experienced it before, some time ago. On this last occasion it appeared immediately I logged in. No big idea - more an irritant than show stopper. Windows 10 with Firefox. Both regularly checked for updates, etc. Jonny
  12. Nick ... Your modelling to date looks great. You could save yourself a bit of trouble by buying an Xtradecal sheet X48144 - one of Bader's 242 Sqdn Hurricanes (V7467) is featured - along with 4 other BoB Hurricanes. It's currently out of stock at Hannants but their website indicates it'll be back soon - or you could try looking at a certain well known online auction site! Hope this helps, Jonny
  13. Hi, Harrygt40 ... One other idea came to mind ... IF you can find someone with an unbuilt 1/72 model TSR2, ask if they can have it copied using 3D printing, scaled up to 1/48. Sadly my knowledge of 3D printing is limited to watching a demonstration at my local Computer club quite a while ago now but it migt be feasible to reproduce the part you need by this means. Welcome to Britmodeller, by the way. You'll find it's a mine of mostly expert help and advice! HTH, Jonny
  14. Not sure I like this approach. Not only does it affect newsagents by not supplying them with copies to sell, but MA Publications apply a quite high 'Post-and-packing' charge. I only realised when I started to buy the November SAMI. Sorry, but I abandoned the whole thing. SAMI is usually quite good but not, in my view, worth over £7 a pop.
  15. I was at Duxford yesterday too. It seems that that it was the last 'airshow' of the season, and the only show I've managed to get to this year. Like Alpha Delta 210 I've splashed out to sit in N3200 (with camera too!) next month which will be the 3rd Spitfire I've sat in! One must hope that something will fill the hole in the Duxford calendar left by Flying Legend's departure. Yesterday was the first 'showcase' I've been to - I hope it won't be the last. There were LOTS of aeroplanes out in the open and the flying show was good - no-one's fault that the weather wasn't exactly
