  1. I've just seen a trailer on YouTube showing that Disney are releasing a version of The Shepherd starring John Travolta. It looks like a winner!! I think a little bit of wee came out in the excitement!!! Take care all! Chris
  2. My father-in-law, Doug , wanted to play his part in WWII but because he was in a reserved occupation as an electrician, he was classed as essential to the war effort. Towards the end of the war he was then able to sign up to the RAF and went to Canada for his training flying Tiger Moths, Ansons and Cessna Cranes. When he came back to England he was posted to RAF North Luffenham, 102 Flight Refresher School for conversion training to jets as pilots were needed for the Korean War, maybe. Fellow member on Britmodeller @Ghostbase , his father was also stationed there at the same time and he had photos of his father and Doug and also a picture of the Spitfire F.22 markings. With this information and a picture of the Vampire I was able to complete this part of Doug's life. Regards Robert
  3. My next project is going to be my first resin kit. I picked this up at the WASMEX model expo swap meet. i have always liked Vampires and this really caught my fancy. Here are the deceptively simple instructions: A nice decal sheet: Of course it has to be the RAAF bird: The resin itself: I've handled resin before as details parts, but never a complete kit. It looks like a significant amount of time will be taken cleaning the parts up of flash etc. And on the main airframe there appear to be some pinholes that will need filling as well, you can just seem them in the close up: I know I will need to use superglue and be careful of any sanding dust, but any advice the collective could give me would be gratefully received. First queries: I will need to do some background reading on the colour scheme, I am assuming the cockpit will be black? Will there need to be any weight put in the front to stop it being a tail sitter? I am a bit worried it may be too much for the undercarriage. I was playing with the idea of semi-permanently mounting it on a base.
