  1. Lovely, one of my favorites as well, I built that kit many years ago, probably when it was first released. Not sure what happened to it. In spite of the size I'd love to see it in 1/72.

    Making an Gloster Meteor F-3 from HK's kit...

    I would be up for an F-3 conversion from Paul, I bought his engine upgrade for the F-4 but have not built it as I would rather have the F-3.

    I hate the new software

    From my standpoint I really didn't see any issues with the upgrade but then I never used any of the ancillary features like subscribing to posts or whatever with the old software so I guess that's why. Everything seems to work smoother and is less laggy than the old at least at my end of the net.
  6. I have often wonder about the flak myself, I would have thought with the onslaught put up over large cities that it would have been literately raining shrapnel on the city below littering streets and surfaces but I have never read or heard anything along these lines.

    Model kit trading platform...

    I certainly would be interested, Most forums don't have the level of traffic that eBay has but I really don't want to do eBay ! While LSP is probably the busiest forum I belong to it is scale limited, I have listed some on other forums with only limited success mostly due to smaller memberships and traffic. Scalemates does seem to get a good amount of traffic so maybe that would be a good place to start. I seem to recall seeing an ad for a trading auction site a while back but couldn't find it went I went looking, maybe it was a Facebook thing.

    Social Modelling. Who does it?

    Not since my youth, my Brother and I would set up a card table in our bedroom and each assemble a kit over a weekend. No filler, no airbrush and quite often very little paint if the kit was molded in the right base color. Early on we used single edged razor blades for trimming parts and the only paint we had were the little square bottles from Testors and usually a very limited color selection as the dime store never had more than basic colors. Needless to say no masterpieces were created but it kept us out of trouble and sowed the seeds of a life time hobby, at least for me anyway. Now days I don't think it would work as I'm to easily distracted and would probably spend more time running my mouth than building.

    Great work, I wish I could have had the interior photos for reference when I built my Koster 1/48 scale kit a couple years ago.

    1/32 Mk XVIII Tse-Tse Mosquito

    Oops, my bad, I should have noticed the date, just wishful thinking I guess, Jeff, I have one of those and would love to find another one !

    Were those awards hung with Scotch control release hangers ? Those things are crap. My Wife loved them as no tools were required, for years after her passing I had stuff falling off the walls, often in the middle of the night. I think the last of them is gone now, never again !

    1/32 Mk XVIII Tse-Tse Mosquito

    I guess I must live under a rock, I thought Paragon shut down years ago and that was the reason their stuff sells at gold prices on evilbay. Do they have a website ? Google only linked me to a few vendors having minimal stocks

    B26 Marauder - LSP

    Heresy I know, but I would be happy to see a new tool one in 1/48, the old Revell kit is getting long in the tooth and a newer, better fitting and more detailed kit would be most welcome.
