    Can you believe this???

    I’m ex-RAF although not an engineer, but from mates that were we never had armed aircraft in a engineering hangar environment. QRA and HAS’ are different mindset. This has got human factors written all over it and it will come out in the investigation. I was in on the build up briefs for the London Olympics and initially Typhoons were going to be based at Boscombe Down, but in the end it changed to Tornado F3’s. It proved a nightmare to have a safe point of aim when they were being live armed, Salisbury, Porton Down & a new housing estate right outside the fence. In the end they decided Beacon Hill was the only option with a dual carriage way going over it. With regards the F-16 perhaps the gun was being zeroed in!. A good friend of mine ejected the fuel tanks on a Harrier GR5, which you shouldn’t really be able to do with procedures, but he did Steve.
  3. I’m doing the 1/32 Revell Tornado at the mo. Construction of the tail planes has show that one sides trailing edge is lovely and thin, but the other sides trailing edge is vert thick. How can I thin this out without creating a wedge and loosing all the detail. Steve.

    Hey I was just looking at these on my weekly eBay search, unaware of your thread. Watching with interest and feedback please. Steve.

    I’m not really into WW1 stuff but judging from the reactive posts on here it’s a big thing them doing something else. Either way I like WW2 aircraft but like some others here I simply couldn’t justify the cash. I tend to buy second hand stuff to keep the costs down but I suspect after the honeymoon period these will still demand a decent price tag. I’ll be content to look at others at model shows that will dictate whether I’ll get one or not (probably not). Steve

    Well I’m looking at doing a Belgium aircraft, so it will be interesting to see which one to purchase along with those decal recently posted on here from France. Steve.

    CH-47A Chinook Trumpeter 1:35

    I’ve got one in the loft, I’ll think it can stay in bits for the moment, as my wife would not be best pleased Steve.

    Looks really great. Can you put up a photo with something beside it, to show the size of this thing! Steve.
  10. Don’t know how I missed this thread, upon the first read I think I read 8.in one go. Steve.
  11. I’m just starting the seats in my Airies cockpit set and I’ve noticed that some of the etch is brown tarnished. Is this normal as I’ve not noticed it previously on other applications. I’m not convinced it a prepainted item as there is untarnished bits alongside. Steve.

    do you keep all of your finished models?

    My smaller scales (less than 1/32) are in a box in the loft. My 1/32 stuff is on display in the garage or in the local aviation museum. When I run out i’ll Look at more shelving. Steve.

    Mirage IIIE References

    Sorry to highjack the thread, Mark, is it any good. I’m planning on a 5 later in the year. There are a couple on eBay in the US but the postage kills it plus import tax. In the UK I found one for £40. Steve.
  14. Hey your right about the lighting, night time model show = could be the next great trend....

    Omani Hunter, Call her done!

    I’ve just stumbled across this, don’t know how I missed it!. It looks absolutely splendid and you can visualise it doing 400kts at 10ft. Steve.
