    HK Lanc review

    If it is - as you imply - repeated behaviour, why should we have to ignore it?

    HK Lanc review

    If we weren't - all - modelling nerds, this site wouldn't exist: neither would after-market decals ... If video reviews give him the creeps, why did he watch it? Surely not just to be able to make an offensive post about it? I found the review helpful, and appreciate you doing it.

    HK Lancaster.

    Have we actually had a "test shot" (literally)? I thought we'd seen CAD images and (??) some 3D printing from those early CAD designs ... but no shots yet from any actual cut metal? I may be wrong though!

    Hannants Customer Service..

    The shop at Colindale (north London) is a separate enterprise: "The Hannants London shop at Colindale is independently owned." (from their website). Unless you bought your items from that shop (rather than the mail order Hannants in Lowestoft), I suspect that the "colindale" email address may not get you any result. The odd times I've needed to contact them about orders etc I use the sales@hannants.co.uk email address; they do / will answer, and in my experience definitely WILL sort things out for you.
  5. I really like - prefer - the look of the two seater v the single seater ...

    1/32 revell vs trumpeter mig 29

    Looks to me like there is a bigger gap on the real thing than there is in the plan ....????

    Trumpeter 1/32 MiG-29A - first Pics

    Now listed as available to advance order from Hannants (which usually means the arrival is fairly imminent, and reasonably certain ...), with a 10% advance order discount: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/TU03223

    Color for AH-64 Apache?

    Whichever colour you pick / can get hold of, I think you may need more than one shade / tint of it, for a "used" look (this is a Brit example, but I *think* the original paint colour is the same?):

    Xmas wishes???

    I'm sure that the OP can answer more fully than I can ... but in the meantime, for info it is a Fairey Firefly
  10. Is it (meant to be) a Bullpup?
  11. And my use of the word "polluting" probably came across as more confrontational than I intended to be; apologies for that.
  12. You do realise, don't you, that there is a separate thread on the proposed new B/N Phantom, where you could have posted your enthusiastic comments and wishes ... without polluting this thread with the negative comments about the Spey-powered variants?? There are quite a few people, including me, who don't think they are a "waste of time" ...

    Revell's 1/32 Tornado ECR Tiger Meet 2014

    Thanks guys for all of the advice plus very helpful pics on the use / don't use bits for an IDS rather than an ECR

    Revell's 1/32 Tornado ECR Tiger Meet 2014

    I'd like to piggyback on the OP's question, and take up your kind offer to "ask away" ... I too have the ECR version, being the only one seemingly available when I bought mine (at a good price ...); but I also want to build the IDS version. Just thinking about OOB for now, is there an idiot's guide (or if not, can you give *this* idiot a guide) as to: - which ECR-specific parts should not be used; - which IDS-specific parts (in the box, but presumably marked not for use in this case??) should be used; to make the switch to an IDS version?

    F-4E Phantom 57 th FIS decals

    I've always had a soft spot for 57 FIS and its aircraft: if you ever succeed in getting these printed, count me in for one please! (Though what I really want to build are a dayglo-marked F-89 and F-102, kit makers please note ...)
