  1. I am not sure if this is the correct place to put this but it is a bit of a niche question. I am currently looking to make a model of (part of) RAF Harwell. I currently work on the site where it used to be and am trying to find old images of it. There are some out there but nothing beyond a few tentative ones where they are not sure if it is or isn't Harwell. I was firstly wondering if anybody had any better photos of the place, or secondly are there any better places to look for photos. I have found aerial photography of the airfield when it had concrete runways, but I would like to find something from when it had grass runways, which was most of its existence. Also, any information anybody has on the area or the site it would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hello there! About to start a new project here and I thought I would share every step with you. I have the intention of building all the new Tamiya kits that come out and I finding a way to integrate them into a (hopefully) cool diorama. The first kit in line is the Tamiya 1/48 SS-100 German Heavy Tractor. The build of that kit will be available soon on the thread for military vehicles. I made the decision that this diorama would take place at the Bologna airfield in 1944 because it is possible that the particular SS-100 I'm going to build was stationed there along with the recon Me109's of NAGr.11. So I had a SS-100 from a Flak unit and an me 109, now how to integrate them into an appealing diorama. Well, here is what I came up with so far, tell me what you think of it. Pretty packed scene, have to see if it's too much in the end or not. I'd be glad to recieve any criticism from any of you and will post future updates here once the diorama gets going. In the meantime I'll be giving regular updates on the German Tractor build on the other thread. Kind regards, Jack
  3. It was only recently that I came back to plastic models since my childhood as I have my own children now and they are into planes. I've built a few of late and I really needed somewhere to stick them (as well as their bedroom ceiling) and as I have never made a diorama before, I felt it was about time I gave it a try so here goes. Bear with me as it may take me some time as I work full time and have 2 young boys to entertain. I value opinion at any level so please feel free to comment good or bad. The theme is a generic WW2 fighter base/Airfield around early summer 1941 and is going to be as much about developing different techniques and processes as I go along. Hope you enjoy how this progresses. Deano
  4. Hi all, I've just got a small query concerning airfields in England. Would a Spitfire F Mk. 22 be seen on the same airfield as a Gloster Meteor? Thanks in advance, Cam
  5. Hi All Looking for a bit of help from the diorama dudes out there. As most of the kits I build are of WW2 Aircraft I often like to present them on their own base depicting a stationary Aircraft parked as most were on Grass. Currently I will use a Landscape mat then apply PVA and sprinkle on a static grass dusting to break it up ,it looks ok but is a bit of a pain to do and seems to shed bits as time goes on. Surely there must be a better way , perhaps a mat all pre done that simulates a grass airstrip and not a snooker table , I found this online http://www.polakmodel.com/en/vyrobky/main/Meadows-type-A/and it looks perfect but they don' t ship to the UK. Can anyone recommend a product or a better way of achieving this effect. Thanks In advance
  6. The Toyota G series of trucks was built in huge numbers by the Japanese with the GB alone amassing 19870 units between 1938 and 1942. Hasegawa first released this 1/72 version complete with Hucks Starter in 1978. Unfortunately it's noted as 'retired' on their site but it pops up occasionally from the usual 2nd hand suppliers. I was planning on starting it in a week or two but plans change and out it came ahead of schedule. So is it worth building?...lets find out..
  7. Merry Christmas, everyone! I was just looking around the web for possible candidates to fill in the GA parking stands on my prospective airfield apron. The A320s and 737s were catered for, but what about some Cessna & Co. in 1/144?... I came across a couple of online shops offering 3D-printing services which already have a good portion of aircraft, vehicles and airfield equipment in their portfolio: http://www.shapeways.com/search?q=1%2F144&s=0#more-products There are many items ranging from helicopters to WWI fighters, from Etendards to AMXs, from Tucanos to Lynxes, from firetrucks to access steps/ ladders and dinosaurs (it takes a bit to go through the couple of thousands of lines) and I am not commenting on the prices, but should you "require" a certain subject - like me with the Citation Excel and, say, some Skyhawk - then it might be worth a look. *** The other shop is click2detail: https://www.click2detail.com/store/c27/1%3A144.html Here, the product range might be a bit smaller in 1/144, but very much worth a look given the aircraft subjects aaaaaaaaand ... ...the 1/72 Global Express and 1/72 Sentinel R.1 [incl. markings by DRAW Decal] kits Apologies if this has been posted before. I did a quick search upfront but found nothing
  8. Hi there can someone help me please... I wish to create a small piece of RAF Taxi way / Airfield for my Vulcan over in WIP. I was thinking something simple tarmak, bit of grass. but can anyone give any tips or things I might wish to include. Cheers Rob
  9. Hi, Does anyone know what the dimensions of the circular dispersal points on bomber command airfields would have been during world war 2? The reason I ask is that I'm trying to complete a diorama of a bomber command dispersal point but I can't find anywhere on the internet any info or pictures that would help and I was hoping that somebody on here might know. Many thanks, Rich
