    I never knew Darth Vader made models, but hey it is kind of cool I suppose

    HB B24 discussion: AM and fixes.

    Perhaps the phrasing wasn’t so great but I actually appreciate Jennings’ post. i would like to know what mark is appropriate for said decals etc Let people know, and then they can decide for themselves, rather than just try to hide the truth

    Lancasters and Spitfires!

    Is the Spitfire set available in 1/32?

    Ok but don’t spend too much time doing it You should be devoting your time to a B-24 decal set

    The One That Got away 20/Jan/2019

    Nice. usually I can’t understand why people build old kits like this but the backstory makes it just seem ‘right’. even more so because I have one of my own versions of this to do myself - the last kit my Mother bought me before she passed away. enjoy your project. kind regards nick

    Airfix 1/48 Hunter released

    yes, but you of all people should know that's because it will only be bought by 0.00000000001% of the world's population!

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

    if anyone's interested, those academy Tiger kits are nice if you want a 'looks like a...', but not much else
  9. this will be kind of cool i must admit, and i'm not normally into Luft 46 must ask though - where are getting that White 3 was Marseille's aircraft? in all my years surfing the net i have never heard that before so not disputing, just wondering where I've been!
  10. scared to play in the big boy scale
  11. neither am i. plus for an E-3, it's the Dragon kit every time. I have built one Eduard 109 and that was 1 too many

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    I have exchanged a few messages with Profimodeller about replacement turrets for the Lib. I got the idea on seeing their H-22 (V-1) conversion for the Heinkel He111 H-6, which includes a new dorsal turret. They didn't know about the B-24 turret but seemed receptive, depending on demand etc So, feel free to message them on Facebook and chime in asking for turrets!
  13. That’s super cool information but as we all know 1/32 is a completely different kettle of fish to 1/72. the liberties with details you can take in the weeny scale just aren’t there in 1/32 in my view i cant see anyone doing that conversion, but *I can* see someone doing the ‘wings’ and rockets for a D version. happens to look a lot cooler as well

    wow! hard core! Looking forward to seeing this, and hoping that you are a manufacturer of the Bolton Paul turrets! Nick
