    Revell 1/32 BAe Hawk T.1A

    Those seats look really great. Whilst your there don’t forget the bag on the bulkhead behind the rear seat. Google it and you’ll suddenly notice it. I just did paper mache and paint when it was dry. Steve.
  2. What a stunning build and I have one of these in the stash to do an RAF 7 Sqn aircraft. Your build is inspirational and I will come back to it when I start mine in the new year. Steve.

    Fisher's F9F-2 Panther

    Very nice indeed and as others say the instant connection with the film is inevitable. Steve.

    What is this? a Drop tank I think

    I’ve got a bit of a nose panel of a crashed ETPS Hawk in the garage (great for colour matching) and the antenna that sits above the canopy on the T5 ETPS Lightning, which I acquired when it was being decommissioned. NB - I’m doing the 1/32 cab at the mo and I may not be using the Big tanks...... Steve.

    Black Friday kit sales

    Haven’t really looked and unless it’s well advertised I think there is a high potential for the sale to be missed, although I’m not sure how much the frenzy is taken up by our hobby, especially over here in the UK. Steve.
  6. For me it’s that time of year when I’m more reflective about life than I ever am. I am ex-RAF and spent 24 years in the mob having been made redundant in 2010 finishing as a Chief Tech. I spent 9 years in Northern Ireland on 14 Int as Comms support, going back into blues at RAF Waddington. I then spent a good few years attached to 264 Signal Sqn at Hereford going overseas I support of the SAS & SBS (Delta force & Seals to our US members) at various locations where Hercules and Chinooks were used. As an ex-member of the UK forces I feel very humbled at the thanks “we” all get from taking part and choosing a Military career path. I tend not do do war stories or medal count. It’s a choice and we can leave at anytime so shouldn’t expect recognition. But to those of you who say thanks -THANKS Steve.
  7. Agreed, I dropped by to say high, spoke with Royboy as everybody there was gassing with the public. Splendid effort on the Lancaster and the Tornados’, purely as I’m building one at the mo. Royboy if you remember I had made hardly any purchases at the time, I changed that, by eventually buying the Land Rover Lightweight & the Bloodhound = £242 Steve.

    Airfix News Just in from Telford: 1/24 Hellcat!

    You can visualise John Wayne callsign pancake in that. I not that big into props but I think it’s a good choice. Steve.

    New HpH DC-3 Pics up!!

    Me too, I could not believe it was £600. I’m not prepared to pay that. Steve.

    Scale Modelworld Telford 2018

    Well I had a good day and all I’ll say is those Lancs are massive. Chap on the HKM stand said the first 1500 will have the option of clear or non-clear fuselage but they will be around the £500 mark. Steve.

    Aires Cockpit Fit Issues???

    I’ve just done this with the Aires pit on the Revell Tornado to get the nose wheel well to fit. I took it into work to use the air powered tools. But same as you they need to be made to fit. Steve.

    I must be a grumpy old man

    Subject knowledge is the key, if they choose to find out. Most can’t be arsed. Steve.
