    gunpowder got a reaction from GDW in DeAgostini Millennium Falcon 1/1 scale, updated 9/19   
    This is the Deagostini wall mount. I wasnt sure at first but once it was up , and my half finished falcon on it , i was sold!  It has quite a good range of movement on it. It looks great in the stairwell though. The nosecone is a shapeways 3d printed one. It was one of the cheapish but looks great.

    gunpowder got a reaction from ChuckD in Thoughts on replicating this oil staining on a TBF Avenger?   
    I sometimes put a small blob of very thinned tamiya rubber black and then blow it up close. It looks like a proper oil run.

    gunpowder got a reaction from D.B. Andrus in Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A ..........blimey finished one.   
    This lockdown situation gave me a little more time to do some modelling. I have given up on 1/32 and 1/24 i think. I keep buying them , then loads of aftermarket , starting them , getting bored with them and selling them on. Time for a change. I want to build good quality models , that actually fit on a shelf. I will not be using aftermarket if i can help it.  I have been getting more into the Pacific Theatre and so have decided to go with planes from that. I will be sticking to Accurate miniatures or italeri , Tamiya and Hasegawa. I really dont have the patience for poor fitting kits anymore.
    This kit has really bought the fun back into modelling. Beautifully detailed and easy to build. I have a great time just building from the box. The problem is i think i need the rest of the F4U line now!
    Apologies for pics i took them on my Iphone

    Follow WHO and ECDC advice. Ignore anything you read on forums and social networks, no matter how "credible" it seems. We need to stop panic and disinformation. Stay informed!

    gunpowder reacted to PhilB in Wuhan coronavirus - everybody just calm down!   
    Not saying that it shouldn't be taken seriously.
    Like seasonal flu should be but isn't.
    Where did the permanent damage thing come from?
    Not heard that it's more infectious either as haven't heard that.
    Seasonal flu is currently more dangerous because it kills more people.
    Simple maths.
    I'll repeat this is a serious situation but not a cause for panic.

    gunpowder got a reaction from MikeC in visiting london this april RAF museum vs Imperial war or duxford?   
    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.
