  1. Putting all the technical stuff to one side, I think it's a great looking aircraft. It's quite an airshow performer too. Saw a superb display at Duxford a couple of years back. (In formation with a P-51D for some of it!)

    Aren't they 'tyres'?
  3. This is a great thread. Love the modelling AND the ongoing narratives.
  4. Exactly. I somehow managed to fit the engine upside down - obviously I misread the instructions. It was the Birdcage version and I do have the -A and -D variants in the stash too, so let's hope I don't repeat my error with them!
  5. I'm currently building one of their 1/48 P-51s, and part A-50 was missing. It's one of the two inserts in the front of the wing that has the gun muzzles. It had probably fallen off the sprue and got swallowed by the carpet monster, but I contacted Eduard anyway, fully anticipating having to pay for a replacement. But no, they sent me the sprue free of charge, which arrived in about 10 days - not bad considering the distance travelled. I'm not sure you can give better customer service than that...
  6. I’ve taken to listening to modelling podcasts while I model! I’ve only just picked up on them, so have quite few ‘back-issues’ to get through. ’On The Bench’ is the one I am currently ploughing through.
  7. Thank you very much for your efforts Kev.
  8. That was more squeaky bum time than a thrashing!
  9. Still find it a hoot watching the original footage from Episode IV before they overdubbed James Earl-Jones's voice over DP's David Prowse had quite a high-pitched voice with a West Country accent. No offence to folks from that wonderful part of England, but it isn't the accent I'd choose for an evil galactic overlord!
  10. John, I must admit I was hoping you’d turn your attention to one of Tamiya’s Spits after your magnificent Mossie! MJ250 in its hybrid NMF/camouflage guise as above is one of the marking options you get in the current Revell Mk.IX offering. I built it using other aftermarket alternatives, so I probably have these markings in my spares box. If I do, you would be welcome to them!
  11. I think those are the best figures I've ever seen. Just superb. (And the rest of the model aint bad, either!)
  12. Some lovely models there chaps. I remember my Dad building this kit back in the 70s and he enjoyed it. Spence Pollard did a beautiful conversion of one of these into a two seat version, which was at Telford a few years back. Was simply glorious!
