  1. Regarding the sabotage of slave labour built machinery; during the rebuild of the Maybach engine for Bruce Compton's ( 'Combat Dealers' ) Panther tank, it was found that one of the intake or exhaust valves had a bevelled relief machined into the stem, which would have caused catastrophic failure when the end snapped off.
  2. Thanks for the interest and replies Tony, I'll keep waiting : ))
  3. Hi Tony, thanks, yes I saw that link and posted it in the original post, but having heard about this kit some time ago I was suspicious that perhaps the magazine series never got past issue 7?
  4. Apparently offered by De Agostini as a monthly series build. Has anyone ever seen one in reality? For some unknown reason I have a fascination with this aeroplane, and would would be keen to build a 32nd version. Here are two links from the net, from what I can gather there are 24 issues, but only 7 available? http://mavzolhobby.com/store/deagostini/legend-aviation-scale-132/
  5. Thank you for the great photos! Pardon my ignorance, but why did the RAF clip the blades?
  6. Beautiful, love the paint finish!
  7. Received my sets safely John, first impression; there's a lot of it! Thank you once again for doing this, best regards.
  8. Both sets ordered, "Happy Christmas to me!"
  9. Thank you for the replies! I like the look of that PCM kit, I will have to invest in one!
  10. Pardon my ignorance, but is there, or has there ever been, a conversion available in 1/32 for the Hurricane prototype? Such an attractive aeroplane.
  11. Many years ago there was a Belgian ( I believe ) TV series that featured Thunderflashes. I cannot remember the name of the series unfortunately....
