  1. Past hour
  2. Impressive collection. They look great displayed like that. The B-2 Spirit lurking at the bottom is my favourite though - it's just not of this world!!
  3. This must be a mistake. It was released long ago.

  5. Thanks for your replies. It looks like Copydex is easy to get, but I've read that it has a fishy smell. Anyone know if that smell goes away when it dries, or are you let with a smelly model?

  7. You can see from this unofficial photograph that they were not confident in the Apollo Command Module at all -
  8. Hi mates I'm planning to build my Eduard rebox version of the titled kit. Before starting I searched several finished kit pictures online, but found the Revell F.3 nose looks very weird. My first assumtion is, the nose cone is too long compared with real life pictures. Just curious if any one else has any research result to prove my observation? Or any real life measurement to evaluate the Revell kit nosecone? Thanks all in advance.
  9. Bits bashed into submission (or carefully adjusted) allowing close up: Gunsight painted and small cooler assembled: Spoked wheels or plain do we think? Spoked ones are nicer.
  10. Not a huge helicopter fan, but I'm here for the pure nostalgia. I probably built one in the distant past (it looks exactly like the kind of kit that would have been all that was left in the local newsagents after all the Spitfires and ME109s were sold ). Also if the nose is anything to go by I may learn a thing or two about modelling as well.
  11. Impressive build and impressive collection of USAF heavies.
  12. Is Gripen a new tool? Different plastic for A and C versions or just different decals?
  13. These things happen, when building my pup I decided to attach the exhausts to the cylinders form memory and of course they are on the wrong side, it's probably the only LHS LeRhone in existence. and no I didn't correct it as it's almost invisible with the cowl on.
  14. Count me in. Probably with a Skyhawk, but you never know what else might catch my eye.
  15. I’ll be a little late starting as going on a cycling holiday at end of February
  16. Ah well at least I asked. Milliput it is then. Sec gets some new tentacles Fairly pleased with my efforts just need to match the colours a bit better and we're there. Funny must be metamerism in action, the two look much closer IRL)
  17. Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) & AZmodel (AZ) 2020 catalog - programme are online Source: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235010228-kpaz-central-discussion-questions-answers/&do=findComment&comment=3565762 V.P.
  18. No jig yet; that will follow if/when the prototype works. As it happens, initial impressions suggest that the tip of a pair of Tamiya PE pliers is pretty much the perfect size for the front upside down V. There is a second upside down V and an upside down U (actually, more of a Pi) to come. And they are all different sizes. In reality, however, my drilling is unlikely to be that precise over 15 fuselages (much of the strength will come from the fact that these upside down Vs have their feet embedded in 0.3mm holes drilled in the fuselage), so the technique is as likely to be ‘bend to fit’ as make 45 identical upside down letters. You will never hear me describe my erstwhile steed as a “chopper”. But no need for any scratching in the chopper area. This is not because the ointment is working, but because the kit includes a couple. [I am tempted to say “that’s enough Viz humour”, but who am I kidding?]
  19. Oh! I'm glad to see this one alive. The primer brings out all the lovely detail. It really is stunning. Can't wait to see it painted. Kristjan
  20. A brand new DVD of the 1983 movie The Keep by the director Michael Mann. Apparently this is the first time it has been available on DVD.
