  1. Not one for me but I'm pleased for Luftwaffe fans and 1/32 fans as there is now another new tool kit on the way Cheers Dennis
  2. Nice one, the Seafire looks great in French markings, I think the dog should be a bit moer excited and barking with the snake so close, our local dog used to bark to warn us when snakes were about when we lived in Thailand. The figures really bring it to life. Cheers Dennis
  3. What a moving story, thank you for posting it Dennis
  4. Must have missed the one about rivet circles, David has a good idea which should work but there is also this from MDC, if the size is right https://www.modeldesignconstruction.co.uk/accessories/100-rivet-maker-1-32.html Cheers Dennis
  5. Here is another thread on the patches, it mentions that if the patches were not available either nothing was used or as one poster wrote he had heard from an RAAF armourer that they used newspaper doped on. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/11379-raf-gunport-fabric-sealing-patches-colours/ Here is the late Edgar's comments on them. The patches were self-adhesive (rather like sticking plasters,) and were pre-coloured. As well as sealing, they were an indication that the guns were loaded and cocked. There is the famous photo, of WR-D & WR-C, in the desert, and the patches are blue. After application, the patches were (usually) sealed with clear dope; if you can find the photo of VB ZD-F, the darker areas, caused by the dope, can be seen round at least two of the patches. Edgar Cheers Dennis
  6. This is a really sad time for you and you have my condolences. No matter how prepared you think you are it is still a huge shock to lose someone, this thread takes me back to sitting with my father in law when he passed after a short stay in a hospice, he was 94 and had a really great life and he said plainly that he had had enough. This was back in 2011 and despite everything I'm filling up just writing this thinking of him. Dennis
  7. Lots of really useful information here.https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/red-tape-coverings-on-raf-fighters-in-wwii-t507542.html#p2668478 Here's a taster taken from a video linked in the thread, the patches are self adhesive on a gauze roll according to the video. Cheers Dennis
  8. Yes the kit wheels are a joke, for my next builds I got replacements from SEM Models for the original build I used ones of uncertain parentage from the spares box, as Kev said anything is better than the kit ones. Cheers Dennis
  9. That's a really nice build, must get back to mine ! Cheers Dennis
  10. Great start, when I eventually get to mine it will be a cracking reference. Cheers Dennis
  11. Looks good to me, I'm pretty useless when it comes to scratch building. Cheers Dennis
  12. Nice to see that they are consistent Cheers Dennis
  13. That's pure class Iain, sad in a way as it will be going to your client and not gracing your shelves, but you will still have lots of photos and the build thread and a happy client. Cheers Dennis
  14. Ah the wonders of resin conversion sets, i remember it well, but it's all worth it in the end, and it looks like you have it all in hand Kev. Cheers Dennis
  15. You really cannot have enough Spitfires and that is a great kit, and by the looks of it you are doing it proud. Cheers Dennis
