  1. just fyi Tamiya Spit IXc is on eBay (new) for £90 shipped from a UK seller / or from Jadlam Racing direct from their website. pay £95 and you can buy them all day long so not sure where on Earth you are getting £120 from. Are you looking for the most expensive price to pay?
  2. I appreciate this may not yet be the finished article but interested in thoughts on the prop blades as they meet the spinner - just doesn’t look right to me. Overall impression of the smaller / detail parts after watching the video is that they look clunky, as if I’m looking at a 1/48 kit.
  3. That’s a joke right?? either way, the Tamiya 1/32 kit is the best Spitfire in any scale at the moment. Kotare Models LTD’s MkI in 1/32 later this year (the ex-WNW guys) has a realistic chance to eclipse it. Bottom line, Airfix has a very high bar to beat the Tamiya IX. I just hope for better plastic, better mould quality and better fit than their Typhoon and Hellcat kits. Let’s see!
  4. same here (again) @turbo how are things? any more progress on the build you can share with us? Happy New Year Nick
  5. what a list!! you are a machine!! amazing models too - quality as well as quantity. many thanks for sharing Nick
  6. That’s a re-tool, not a new kit
  7. Thanks - so the GWH kit *can* be used to make a 112 Sqn desert shark mouth then?
  8. but isn’t the windscreen / armoured glass config different for RAF birds?
  9. no this was recent, and something I saw on here cone on guys help me out!
  10. Who was make an F conversion? was it Scale Ordnance - the landing gear company?? am I making that up?!
  11. i too have the optivisor and it serves its purpose, but depth of field is measured in microns lol i think there's a reason surgeons don't use cheap sh*t bought of ebay / amazon - the proper stuff is many hundreds of £ / $ etc - lots of German optics manufacturers (moved on from Tiger tank sights to something more life giving than life taking! if you ever go in for an op, pray you don't see the surgeon wearing what we wear!
  12. OMG I had never thought of that! More to the point how come no-one else has ever mentioned it?
