  1. In an interview i read McCampbell said that he usually carried either rockets or bombs when he flew. Does this mean Minsi would have had the bomb racks fitted all the time or would they be removed if rockets were fitted? Apologies if this is a simple question , but im not that clued up on aircraft weaponary. Ta
  2. Great. Thanks for sharing.Like most of us i have a real soft spot for monogram.
  3. Duxford. Its bigger and as others have said its a live museum , theres always something going on. I still really like Hendon. We went recently and they have improved the lighting , which makes it a different place IMO , much better than it was. Shame they took the battle of Britain display away though. Having said that , all of the planes that were in that hall are now in another hall so you can see them much more clearly.Wellington is now at Cosford.
  4. Excellent , thanks Guys
  5. They always make great trailers. I really must go this year , i havent been for a couple of them.
  6. Thanks Dave , thats great.
  7. Is this the right part or am i getting confused? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GMAC3201-1-32-SCALE-P40-EXTENDED-TAIL-HASEGAWA-P40-KIT-AFTER-MARKET/223253968161?hash=item33faf93521%3Ag%3Ao74AAMXQNo5Tanoz&_trkparms=pageci%3Abf2f7395-49ce-11ea-b3d6-74dbd180b048|parentrq%3A20aec94e1700a4b7fcb5306dffe7cd00|iid%3A1
  8. How easy is it to convert the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E to an M model? Just extended tail and the 2 intakes in front of the exhausts?
  9. Has anyone fitted underwing rockets to their Tamiya Mosquito yet? If so what did you use please?
  10. Looking Fantastic. I am just building the very same kit and i was wondering if i should paint the carbs and engine bearers? Can they bee seen through the UC bays do you think?
  11. Oh yeah in the past , about four kits in one stomping. It was incredibly satisfying!
  12. OK people , change of plan. I have been feeling that the fun has been disappearing from my modelling. I think the main reason is obsessing over details. This normally means hours spent on extra detail , that to be honest nobody other than me is going to see , or i the case of some areas not even see. With that in mind i have decided to start a new kit. and only use whats in the box. If its the wrong shape , or appears to need more details added....tough luck , straight from the box rubber tyres and all! Let the fun begin Right new kit
  13. Well i sold the ammunition chutes on as i had an offer i could not refuse. That aloowed me to buy metal undercarriage and metal rads. Cockpit is making progress. Im hoping to do alot more this weekend.
