  1. Lovely build, I love the subtlety of the weathering, really looks like it has been through the mill. Hopefully one day someone will do a Super Mystere in 1/48 or even 1/32. That would make a good 'twins separated at birth' display.
  2. Thinking and praying for all those who have lost loved ones, a terrible event. The only thing that will beat the awful people who do this is to remember those who have lost their lives with dignity and respect and not let the fear and hatred of the terrorists who carried out this atrocity change us. Echoing comments about social media, why would anyone want to share such images?
  3. Thanks Maru, Downloaded and a good read. Cheers Adrian
  4. Had no problems with the landing gear on mine, from what I remember I glued everything together into the wheel bays and then painted to get the strongest joint possible. The delicacy of the folded wings, well that's a different story........
  5. Hawker Hunter is to me the most elegant of all the jet fighters but I'm biased having lived close to a operational base in my youth and been awe inspired by the fly-pasts performed by the OCU. Probably won't happen because of the already excellent Revell one in 1/32, but one can never have enough Hunters in ones life.
  6. For me it's different scales for different types of plane. Single engines fighters - 1/32, twin engined 1/48 (with the exception of the Mosquito) and anything 4 engined in 1/72. Space is the main reason although a 1/32 Lancaster looks tempting!
  7. Second Huberts' comments regarding the museum in Krakow. Where else in the world will anyone see a jet powered, crop dusting bi-plane PZL M-15? A case of the replacement not being as good as the aeroplane it was intended to succeed. Krakow is a beautiful city (one of my favourite places anywhere) so I'm sure you'll have a great time.
  8. I remember one of these from my helicopter top trump card game. From memory it was beaten in every area by every other helicopter.
  9. Bit out of the way but Bristol aero museum aerospace bristol is worth a visit. Also of a slightly different theme, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Durdle door and Haynes motor museum are well worthwhile visiting. Where ever you go, hope you have a good time. Adrian
  10. Excellent, really feeling the need to go again to get my post RIAT aeroplane fix, thanks for posting
  11. Hi Jeff and Carl, Hopefully this link will work: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spitfire-DVD/dp/B07D544FP7/ref=tmm_dvd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1531923296&sr=8-1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spitfire-Blu-ray/dp/B07DFRKHTP/ref=tmm_blu_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1531923296&sr=8-1 They are UK links but hope this helps, Cheers Adrian
  12. Saw it last night in Bristol. I'd agree with Shoggz above, really excellent documentary and very moving in parts. The closing aerobatic sequence was beautifully filmed. The documentary stitches original film, parts of 'the first of the few' and modern footage but has no CGI (for me thats a good thing). The film does use various marks of surviving Spitfires to tell the story throughout the second world war. By far the best film I've seen at a cinema in a long while. It will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in September (pre-order placed 5 minutes after getting home from the cinema).
  13. Saw it during lunch hour at work and thought it was excellent. Not quite as lucky as my son who got to go with Air Cadets to see it live and to have lunch at Horseguards parade. Group build for RAF 100 is an excellent idea. May even persuade me to get out my Hobby Boss Spitfire.
  14. Thanks all, the Cessna is an amphibian with main wheels that retract into the bottom of the float, lovely aeroplane and absolutely immaculate. One of the highlights of the day. Maru, yes the RCAF had both the Hornet Special scheme and a standard line aircraft alongside a C130 in the statics. Can't wait for RIAT, 4 days of aeroplanes (and sunburn).
  15. Hi Maru, ask and you shall receive, a couple of sneaky ones from Weston as well, the Whirlwind just looks such a happy helicopter and did really good work when in service. I remember them well from RAF Chivenor including seeing one jump started at our local school when one popped in for a visit and it's battery went flat. Hope you enjoy, Cheers Adrian
