  1. I know the work is more complicated to get a truly accurate Spey Phantom but in the end life's too short to worry about that. It's the general characteristics that I think are more important. But there are more ways to skin a ca..Phantom. Cees
  2. I am working on one already, the intakes are easy but the rear fuselage is a real pain in the petootie. Cees
  3. Hoho wait a minute! Tjeezz Jennings, you don't build models and now you are doing this?
  4. There is still the substantial wreck of a Dornier DO-215 nightfighter on mudflats somewhere north in The Netherlands. A large section of cockpit skinning and an engine are on display at our museum. The rest is still out there. But due to environmental issues etc. etc.
  5. Wonderful aircraft, legendary recovery and epic restoration. My wife and I once made a boat trip on Loch Ness, the water is very stange, black and very choppy that day. You really thought something was lurking beneath the waves. While the other tourists were looking for Nessie I asked the captain about the Wellington. He was very puzzled as people are only interested in the "monster". He happend to be a diver during the recovery and had some very nice stories to tell. I was glued to his lips you might say. Great trip that was. Although I didn't have time to look around for Nessie. Cees
  6. I think you should clear up rocking horse poo before that happens
  7. Didn't Squadron do a vacform fighter canopy for the Revell kit?
  8. I loved seeing it in the flesh Dave. And as I said to you I was amazed to see your previous build at the RAF Museum Cosford the friday before the show. It must be very nice for you to know your two Lancs are now on display at a first class museum. Now all you need to add is a Halifax Cheers Cees
  9. I built both kits and when put next to each other there wasn't much difference, until you looked closely. Horses for courses IMHO. Cees
  10. It's a good kit but the dihedral is a bit flat. Always love a Dutch Spit. Groeten, Cees
  11. Let's be careful about mentioning that HK will do 1/48 Lancasters or B-25's, as Neil hasn't made up his mind about those (he was inundated with similar questions on both days). Although it would probably be the most logical thing to do, that doesn't means it will happen. The future will tell. Cees
  12. Tom, Are you interested in some spare Revell Beaufighter parts such as engines and props? I have some and can bring them with me for you to have. Cheers Cees
  13. Ahh a Dutch Tiger Moth, tempted........ Cees
  14. It has progressed nicely, everything can be found at LSM. cheers Cees
  15. A Manchester, hmmm now that would be nice........
  16. I will be present both days manning the HK Models stand. So don't be shy and say hello. Cheers Cees
  17. Ahh, I wasn't sure it was Angelo or Steve Thanks Kev. Cees
  18. You can check out HL-10's (I think that is Steve Budd) build on Britmodeller where he shows how he did his own conversion. I am using his as a template for my own conversion. Although my FGR is stalled at the moment due to the Manchester. Cheers Cees
  19. Pup, You shouldn't believe everything you read......
  20. Wow, wonderful achievement. Really looking forward to see you scratchbuild a jet. As that wonderful Kim Wilde used to chant: " Just go for it!". Cheers Cees
  21. Come on Iain, The best thing to get your mojo back is to visit Telford and let those creative juices overwhelm you (or that could possibly be beer). Cees
  22. The problem with Neil is that he likes all suggestions. Such as the Halifax I casually mentioned to him Cees
