  1. Not that this is of any use at all but you may come across some from heritage aviation in the uk but stear clear of them like the plague, they were cast from the terribly shaped and sized Hachette partworks Lancaster , just thought it worth mentioning what not to get..... you could buy an HK lanc and have open merlins on the lanc and cowls on the CASA...? Depends on what absolute level of accuracy you require ....
  2. Ignore this https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Tow RagAND MY PLEASURE
  3. if you are going to insult people, get the insult right. tow rag...… NOT toe rag a Tow rag is a rag that sailors used to wipe their dirty backsides with after ablutions, that was then tied to a rope and towed behind the boat to: A . get it away from the crew and B. clean it in the water …….hence ..TOW... Rag..
  4. could you run us through your statement.. the kit is massively out of proportion in many areas? what areas? how massively? examples and evidence please..
  5. Those remaining, hopefully more than we think...
  6. Great episode, i dont think the next 4 episodes will be about the battle with the dead, i thinkthat will take up the next episode, the nextthree will be dealing with Cersei and her and Euron and their army both land and water.......
  7. For all the hard work that this kit is ( and you are doing a fantastic job of it) i think the depth of thegearbay is excellent and it looks to potentially have the best most accurate gearbay of any hornet kit, to the point where i want to build it just to work on the gearbay as you have,,... brilliant stuff
  8. Would have thought you were aware of the level of detail inside, firstly as you paying £ 700 quid, and secondly as theres lots of infor all over the net aboutthis kit, cant say ive ever heard anyone complain theres too much detail in a kit... HPH wont make you a clear part as it needs a different mold you could leave the bits out if you cant see them....... or just build it as it was meant to be built...
  9. Lovely piece of work, well done indeed, wish that was a kit in 32nd!
  10. Ditto, great work, although who doesnt love a nice steam locomotive ....
  11. The only reason People cant do something is because they never try, some through lazines, some through lack of adventure. Anybody that has a go at something and pereveres will eventually succeed if they put effort in , i only mentioned my job as a way of pointing out that i work for a living all week (i could be a bin man, its not the point) and my spare time is too precious to spend making stuff for others. no one is good at making models straight away on our first attempt, you get better the more you build practice makes perfect, waiting for someone else to do something will teach you nothing and advance your skills not one little bit, dont look for entreprenurial spirit in others, find the adventrous spirit and effort within yourself im not better than anyone, and there are far far better on here than i , but i can assure you its because they have put more effort in than me and done more and tried not because they were perfect at it immediately , or waited for others to defend them or do it for them.
  12. Im a modelmaker and solved it exactly as i said it could be done, i modelmake for fun because when i get home from working on real aircraft design, no momey in the world could buy my spare time and i dont care to use it making parts for other people...
  13. Problem these days is that most in the hobby are just kit assemblers and painters and not modelmakers , the clear parts are an easy fix with a little milliput to take casts, polishing of said cast and vac or plug molding, trimming and assembling said parts to whats left of the trimmed off part is tricky but good results can be had . Its not just modelmaking though, these days everyone wants an instant fix with no effort... patience for others to produce whats needed or effort yourself is the only answer, bemoaning the fact that others havent done what you wont or cant but need is a strange show indeed..
  14. Because some people misunderstand things or mis measure things and its quite the best approach to take everyones opinion with a pinch of salt until i can see visual proof for myself, im aware of what a stuka should measure lengthwise, both a b model and d/g model etc but there have already been misunderstanding here with nose length which isnt in question, in my earlier post on this thread i made a feature of saying im happy to beshown ive missed something and that the op may well be correct but want to see vidual,proof, not someonene throwing dimensions around who initially thought thekit was scaled wrong and didnt suffer a dimensional error...
