    My main interest is in Post 1945 but I build most eras and types. Used to build 1/48 but now fully converted to 1/32 and 1/24 scales in aircraft and 1/35 and 1/16+ for armour.
    I also enjoy ship models in 1/350 scale, 1/200 is great but boy that's really big stuff!!

    Elan13 Miniatures 1/24 scale RAF Pilot WW2

    Fabulous! Another pilot figure to put on the list! When will we see some ground crew in action in any larger scales from anyone? Now we have more 1/24 scale subjects here and coming in the future we desperately need them. Armourers/Engine Fitters and a Radio Man would be a start! Hope someone is listening?

    Fisher models AD-5W Guppy in 1/32....Done!

    Stunning! Absolutely stunning! Can't wait for mine to arrive, this is definitely on my build list for 2019. Well done!!!!!

    Who will I see in Telford this year?

    Hi Chris, Iain is having a break this year from Telford so as Deputy SIG Leader I'll be picking up the responsibility for 32SIG together with Mike and Dave as my very able helpers. I also expect Ollie Holmes to be giving assistance along the way as will several other contributors who I'm sure you'll meet on the stand throughout the weekend. We will have some spectacular stuff on display this year, some on our 'secret' lists will be presented for the very first time to the public and other members! The theme this year is the celebration of 100 years of the Royal Air Force and this time there will only be RAF aircraft on display to commemorate that event. Looking forward to seeing everyone once again. Hope you all have lots of fun! Roy.

    Lancaster purchase

    I'm sticking with the HK Lancaster Mk 1 as it looks amazing, I could be tempted by the WNW kit but high cost could kill it for me! In the meantime, HB Liberators call as well, what to do first though? Happy days!
  9. Look's fabulous, roll on delivery.................!!

    Great Wall Hobby P-40B Tomahawk in 1/32

    I agree that it's great to see another manufacturer getting into LSP's. I expect more companies getting into the action over the coming years. The even larger scales also have enormous marketing opportunities for all subjects, so we shouldn't be that surprised that it's starting to happen now! I predict the biggest growth in the hobby over the next decade will be WWII aircraft in 1/24 scale, with 1/16 armour close on it's heels. 1/32 scale will become even more common place as a main scale too, just like 1/48 became many years back. These are exciting times, just wish I could live another 30 years to see it all!!!
  11. A nice metal undercarriage for the Revell Mk1 Spitty would be well received from me! I would think most modellers doing the kit or who have completed the kit knows how fragile it is once done. It's another idea in the bag for you to consider! Cheers.

    I guess this is all in our hands as customers of these companies. I will still be buying the HK Lancaster Mk I/III and will probably buy the WNW 'Dambuster' version as well! I can't see WNW deviating further from their chosen path after this new release, their WWI subjects have been great and very successful for the hobby overall. Let's support both companies and wait and see? I think Hobby Boss seem to be the one's to watch now IMHO!!

    The Cat is Back........F-14 Tomcat

    Lovely work, and great squadron markings to show off! VF-102 is one of my favourite squadrons, hoping to do a Superbug CAG bird one day. Well done!

    HK Lancaster.

    Personally, I don't think you can improve on the 1950's vintage film, I think it should be left alone! That's a holy grail now for a lot of people, however, I would like to see the story told of 617's next main adventure which was the attack on the 'Beast' aka the Tirpitz. Churchill was reputed to be terrified of the prospect of the vessel coming out and attacking the convoys, what a great story to tell and it should be told rather than repeating their most well known attack. Food for thought perhaps!
