  1. Well despite everything I thoroughly enjoyed the film, my weekly visit to the cinema is a sit back and go with it for couple of hours of relaxation, my wife who does not like "boys" films also enjoyed it, I could tell as she didn't fall asleep. Cheers Dennis
  2. The Spitfire pictured on the box of the Tamiya kit is in the standard Day Fighter Scheme. Upper surfaces are Ocean Grey and Dark Green and the undersides are Medium Sea Grey. The spinner and tail fuselage band (18") are Sky. Serial is in black (night) and code letters are Sky. Prop blades are black with 4" yellow tips. And the wing leading edges are yellow, the bands were 4" wide. Cheers Dennis
  3. Had a great day, as usual we went on the Sunday when it is a bit less hectic, the competition area was especially good, here is a selection of my photos, these are the ones that really caught my eye. Cheers Dennis
  4. Nice result, it looks great, I recently built the same kit and it goes together great. Cheers Dennis
  5. Well what a great day, up at 06:15 and off to Telford, managed to get in the car park at the International centre, this year we reversed out route and checked out the competition models first and the standard was amazing, photos to follow. The 32 SIG/LSP stand was very impressive, the revetments really blew me away, and here is the proof. I even had a chat with the boys and got to put faces to names, more photos on the way when I have organised them. Cheers Dennis
  6. A great story and a great build, nicely done. Cheers Dennis
  7. Great photos, can't wait to see them in the flesh tomorrow. Cheers Den
  8. This is the image from the Britmodeller thread that Photobucket has blurred. Cheers Dennis
  9. The Revell Hurricane Mk. I is ancient but builds up to be fairly accurate in outline and does look like a Hurricane, Revell in their wisdom modified it to look like a Mk. II but they only changed the wings not the fuselage length. Below is the wing with Mk.II ish bumps but still with Mk.I panel lines. I took the kit in and out of the loft a few times before building it, but in the end enjoyed the build, I do have few PCM and FLY Hurricanes but have only built the Revell kit so cannot comment on them. Cheers Dennis
  10. To get back on track here is a thread from Britmodeller on the IX/XVI. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234956022-spitfire-mk-ix-to-xvi/ And on on High back and low back differences https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234947633-differences-spitfire-mkixe-vs-a-high-back-mkxvi/ Cheers Dennis
  11. Nice one, I built an Italian 109 years ago but it did not look as nice as that one, nice recovery Cheers Dennis
  12. Gosh hearing all these different terms take me back to my days with British bikes, I'm sure my BSA A65 had BSCy (British Standard Cycle Thread) studs on the cylinder base, I remember getting replacement nuts from the local push bike shop. Cheers Dennis
