  1. Thanks for the updates and behind the scenes work Kev! Iain
  2. This is a bit of a 'Rut Buster' project for me - I know very little about tanks, so it's stopped the 'rivet counting' creeping in and I've just been able to enjoy the process! Stickers on earlier today - and a few items dry fitted for artistic effect/morale boost - lots of detail painting - and weathering to come... Only change to kit has been to replace the awful suspension coil spring on the first road wheel with one I printed on my Mini 4K LCD resin printer. If anyone spots anything wrong, I really don't want to know - this is purely for FUN! Iain
  3. Great to see this being tackled - look forward to seeing it come together! Iain
  4. Thanks Jennings, that's what the avenues I've gone down so far appear to support. It's odd, because the site is all still live - and you can place orders. But no updates there, or on social media since 2019 (at least that I can see...). I used the site 'contact us' form earlier today and will give it a few days - then claim back through PayPal if nothing heard. Pity - I really wanted that figure!! Iain
  5. Ordered a 1:32 'Sir Percy' figure from them via their website in July and not seen anything yet. Have dropped them a line - but just realised the owner/founder sadly died in 2019. Does anyone know if they are still trading? Or have I inadvertently ordered from a dormant site? Any pointers appreciated! Iain
  6. Just placed an order for the Siskin, Flycatcher, Bulldog - and a Demon as I already have the Hart. Really pleased to see another run of these - I kept putting off ordering when they were available and then, well, they went OOP. Just dreading the possible Customs bill now when they hit the UK... Iain
  7. Great work Hercules - and a very attractive subject! Iain
  8. Love that - very nicely done! And Iain
  9. Affirm - next meeting Thurs 16th Sep I believe... Iain
  10. I wasn't aware of that one either! <makes note to visit one evening> Iain
  11. *Really* not sure at present - but, funnily enough, the topic of the Lightning correction parts came up yesterday with my good buddy Tim @wunwinglow whilst we were working on another project. I'll dig the patterns out again in the near future - but I got *really* burned out on the project - with so many corrections needed, and new ones appearing at every turn. I guess you have to make a decision/set the limits of scope at some point - I can't possibly correct everything, but may make parts available on the understanding that they correct most things and the rest is up to the builder. I'll ponder some more and give an update in the near future. Blue skies... Iain
  12. That's the version I'm waiting on too... Iain
  13. Nice work Max! I've not tried my cutter for that - but notes made... Iain
  14. After a long hiatus from the forums as I've been a little tied up elsewhere, my latest review: Noy's Miniatures WWII Luftwaffe Fighter Hangar (Inside) Set. The prints are 'flats', but the excellent graphics work creates a really neat effect that is ideal for model display, or model photography! Have Fun! Iain
  15. Cracking project Anthony! Iain
  16. Lovely build Mike! Iain
  17. Courtesy of Andy at Antics Models in Bristol - a box of goodies arrived during the week. I appear to be having a bit of a de Havilland moment (and temporary hop over to another scale): Iain
  18. Dornier was 'in action' yesterday as part of a review for something else I'm working on - so a bit of thread resurrection... Tail marking blotted out because I was also posting elsewhere - no comments re. that please as any discussion is bound to go off the rails! Background is one of Noy's Miniatures hangar interiors - writing up a review at present, but I rather like the results of a few minutes with a camera. Review to follow... Have fun! Iain
  19. That's encouraging to hear Patrick! Solidworks appears to be up and running on my PC - and the tutorials look excellent, so I'll be learning some of the basics over the next week, or two. Iain
  20. Apologies for being late to the party Kent - but just catching up on a number of builds - including yours. Absolutely beautiful build/result - and lots of really useful content in your thread that others (including me!) can refer back to when we build ours! Iain
  21. Love it Mike! Have one somewhere in the stash - and an MC202 - both lovely modelling subjects... Iain
  22. No real updates this weekend as I've mostly been 'kicking' the PC into some semblance of order and software 'currency' - and currently installing Solidworks - which may turn out to be a leap waaaaay beyond my abilities - but worth a go. In the mean-time - the fresh joints from the other day have been sanded - and filled ready for another sanding. Oh, and I might have found a way to add the side window glazings from outside, once the fuselage is sanded and primed. We'll see... Have FUN! Iain
  23. Just found this useful 360 photo of the 737-800 - most should be similar to the P-8A: https://www.alamy.com/360-degree-panoramic-view-of-interior-cockpit-boeing-737-800-image219446582.html Iain
