  1. Thanks Maru, know you are a good guy, thanks for contributing
  2. This may or may not make others jealous, but it was a big thing for me ... a massive thing, love my Live music as most here will know and even above our Scale Modelling passion ... Pink Floyd is a big passion, it was arranged that me and 5 other friends go down to see the Australian Pink Floyd show at Glasgow on Saturday ... Few of us have seen the real Pink Floyd before, but some hadn't and this was mostly my arrangement getting things sorted for gigs ... all was sorted, all was good ... but oh wow I was told at last minute another friend had tacked on a greet and meet package for us ... and
  3. But back on topic, do enjoy the spirit of occasion and would like to add one more kit for this years Raffle ... have always donated 2. And i thought it was us Scotsmen who were supposed to be tight Adding a Trumpeter A-7E Corsair II with quickboost resin seat too.
  4. 2 items put aside for our raffle this year ... and of course count me in please. Trumpeter Swordfish 1/32 Mk.1 as one entry Also How to Build Tamiya's 132 Mosquito FB. VI by Brett Green (mint condition) magazine as second entry ... its a mint edition.
  5. My favourite and my decal sheet for it already, bought the sheet for my Trumpy P-51B but put the kit up for sale on ebay last night (minus this decal sheet) I can wait for the ZM kit in confidence it will be much better than Trumpeters
  6. To those from Airfix in the know, what happened to their glass nosed 1/24 Mosquito ... was it ever on the cards, down to sales too perhaps, looks like its still a good seller to me for 1/24? What I'd really like to see is a glass nosed Tamiya 1/32 Mosquito, really thought that would follow on as their Zero/Spitfire/Mustang/Corsairs did ... but it hasn't, same with their 1/32 F-16 possible logical additions, just no fathoming out Tamiya at all At this point I'd like to see Tamiya release their 1/32 Thunderbird F-16 one last time ... kicking myself for the chance of buying one at its rele
  7. Outstanding work on the model and its case.
  8. Yup, really like Interstellar, its one of those movies that creeps up on you, dont own it yet but will soon, love to keep a library of great films almost as much as I like to have a stash of great kits ... Interstellar is up there in my personal Sci Fi list of greats, Contact (Carl Sagan) too ... I really hope Rendezvous with Rama can be made into a good movie some time soon too.
  9. Yes its Brett Greens addendum I've printed out, thanks Mike.
  10. Seen some Sci Fi stuff featured here so hope this is appropriate Love good sci fi, must admit never got into Star Wars and still cant (as much as I've tried too) but serious known on current physics like 2001 does I really enjoy, Kubrick was brilliant, love his work, way ahead of its time and his time too on this project, Ritchie my Cat roars his approval too Watched this back to back on 4K yesterday and then straight again with the commentary track, it never gets old for me this film.
  11. As regards the original Dragon C-7 instructions ... I must have the earliest boxing with poor instructions that Artful mentioned, just opened my kit for a look again and found out a correction for the original instructions print out I'd downloaded somewhere (probably here?) completely forgot I'd done that! Was considering selling this kit before the news of the Revell re-boxing became more widespread (mostly because of a corrected instruction sheet they will probably do) but really dont need that now, by time I sell my kit and Ebay take their cut it would be saving nothing at all I guess? besi
  12. I was just going to suggest the real thing might have had a bulkhead there, but never considered the tail weight aspect either that could make the model sit on its nose wheel properly either, hopefully you can get a replacement correct part. This is an all resin kit ... right?
  13. Heh, seen Rush live on the R30 tour at Glasgow, awesome ... now we're really going off on a tangent, but I'd love if they did one last tour, I would be there come hell or high water. Bringing it back on topic (somewhat) I wonder what Airfix's next 1/24 all new release will be? if they go Japanese I hope its a Val or Kate ... and I've said it before really wish Airfix would switch from 1/24 to 1/32, they make some good interesting subjects and their recent kits in this scale are top quality, doubt that will happen though. Seriously considering the Hellcat as a one off diversion from m
  14. I think its Wednesdays Hasegawa G's are out of favour or is it Thursdays?
  15. Thanks Guys, yep its definitely a Tornado tank, it was GR4's flew in this area (near RAF Lossimouth) and it must have come from one those aircraft, RAF Tornado's did fly from RAF Leuchers air base near Dundee, they were GR1's though ... an almost different Aircraft again and that base is/was well down south from where i live ... this tank is from an RAF Lossiemouth Tornado GR4, no doubt about that ... unless it was a visiting Aircraft that got scrapped here. I'll have to have a dig in my Revell IDS box for a look (thanks Iain) I've got just about every aftermarket part for that kit to tur
