    Glucosamine and Chondroitin?

    There have been some serious trials in the US analyzing the benefits of glucosamine and as one of the posters previously stated, placebo patients got as many “benefits” as the people taking the real thing. I used it for about 10 years and stopped taking it as I felt I was taking it just out of habit with no notable benefits. After stopping I noticed no difference whatsoever. Wish I’d kept the cash and used it to help extend my stash! FYI, apparently paprika is one of the “flavors” of the month regarding helping joint pain...

    Make the others jealous

    Yes buddy! 10 for the 109 50 for the TA152 60 for the HE219 I did a double take when I saw the Zoukei Mura kits sitting there. HOWEVER there is 1 caveat here. In my excitement to snaffle these kits I failed to notice that the HE219 did not (unlike the other two kits) say COMPLETE on the 60 quid price sticker! I’ve looked through the box and maybe 30 percent of the parts are off the sprues but have been carefully put in resealable plastic bags so I’m pretty confident it is complete. A little preparatory painting has been done to some of the cockpit components but that’s about it. I’ve done a bit of research since getting the kits and I think I’ve saved at least £150 quid (maybe someone can confirm this). I suspect the aftermarket alone is worth at least £50..,

    Make the others jealous

    No pics I’m afraid but yesterday I went to a local charity shop and picked up the following : Revell 1/32 BF109G-10 Erla Zoukei Mura 1/32 TA152 Zoukei Mura 1/32 Heinkel HE219 Uhu (this also contained extra paint masks, resin wheels and 2 different sets of aftermarket decals). All for the princely sum of £120! I think I got a bargain...

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

    What's with the sarcastic emoji mate? You could have made your point without it. No wonder lurkers like me are reluctant to participate in threads

    Seems a little disengenious doesn't it?

    I think that was a standing figure though wasn't it?

    Dissapointed to hear that Airfix are breaking with tradition where 1/24 scale kits are concerned and aren't supplying a pilot figure. I read on another forum that they estimated it would cost up to £10,000 to get a figure sculpted and they weren't prepared to add that to the production costs.

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

    Hi everyone, long time lurker who finds the builds in this forum very inspiring (if not a little intimidating!), have finally decided to get my finger out and get involved. This announcement leaves me a little dissapointed tbh, I will certainly get one as I do like the hellcat, but if the agenda was "let's do an American plane this time", I can think of others that would be far more appealing : thunderbolt, lightning, dauntless, devastator, kittyhawk, sabre , phantom et all. I wonder what made Airfix think this particular kit would sell as well as say a Thunderbolt for example? Cheers, Chris
