  1. All this Lightning discussion is soooo tempting me to break out my second Echelon Lightning!
  2. Congratulations Stefan, a lovely Lysander! I was surprised when I saw one in the flesh just how big they are.
  3. I think Iain may have posted this some while ago, but it’s worth another look, especially for those of us who were ATC cadets.
  4. I’m struggling to think where to put my Border Models Lancaster when, if, I build it!
  5. But what if it crashed on its maiden flight?
  6. Thanks Ali, I’m in! Looks like my prayers are answered!
  7. Oh yes please! I always like ailerons, rudder and elevators to be separate if possible but no big deal if it causes complications in design, production or price. The Silvers Wings or Lukgraph prices demonstrate what the kind of modeller who is your market is happy to pay. I’m certainly one of them. PS I’ve also flagged this up on Britmodeller to garner more support.
  8. I think if you and young Tim got your heads together Iain, you could come up with a winning money-spinner here!
  9. Probably Guy, there are fuselage cross sections etc but I’d have to study them in more detail. I’ll post some more pictures of the plans asap.
  10. Sarik Iain, mine are 1/24 scale.
  11. I've haven't ruled it out completely Guy but by 'eck it would be a challenge!! As an ex-ATC cadet the Chippie was my first experience of parachutes, stall turns, loops and rolls so yes, it has a special place in my heart. Not to mention that it was made by de Havilland. There are a couple at the Old Sarum museum which isn't far from me so gathering detail info isn't too difficult. I just wish Airfix did 1/32 scale though, 1/24 doesn't do it for me in the slightest.
  12. I have a Tigger “Chipmunk” too, if we’re talking the very basic vacuform offering. In my opinion it’s not very good, I’d rather scratch build one. These drawings which I’ve recently bought highlight just how much work would be necessary to make something presentable from the Tigger one.
  13. Yep, spotted that on the review…..Kev’s a lucky bloke!
  14. I know Spits are the “glamour boys” but Hurricanes have so much more character!
  15. There's a lot of deserved excitement right now about the imminent issue of the Revell Hurricane and the Kotare Spitfire, but another plane which is on my bucket list is the Chipmunk. Robin Koh produced a resin kit which looks lovely. I emailed Robin last week enquiring if it is still available but had no response to date, anybody else any knowledge or thoughts?
  16. I can’t speak for the Spitfire because I haven’t watched any, but the Lancaster ones are excellent. Bryan Atkinson has done an immense amount of research such that he’s able to explain thoroughly the operation and siting of just about every major part of the Lancaster, this one for the navigator’s station. Finding one leads to the others.
  17. Thanks Troy, can’t say I understood ALL of that on first read but it’s great to have it on record for later consumption!
  18. Looks like a real winner for Revell…..and Radu of course! I can see a lot of interesting builds being done, LSP is going to be a lively place.
  19. Looks fantastic and includes, I think, a trop filter? Win, win!
  20. As a future builder Mike, I’m purely interested in the overall visual appearance; if there’s a dihedral that looks right, that’s good enough for me. The minutiae really doesn’t worry me.
  21. Superb and impressive in every respect, many congratulations Piero!
