    gunpowder reacted to Radub in Wuhan coronavirus - everybody just calm down!   
    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!

    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.

    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?

    gunpowder got a reaction from MikeMaben in Go BIG or go home! Airfix 1/24 Mosquito....again...   
    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

    This has to be one of my favourite kits. I have built quite a few. After we lost our little Daughter i built one and sold it for charity , along with an airfix 1/24 spitfire , so i have a very soft spot for it. Both are on this site.  This one came courtesy of a facebook auction group and it came with Paragon , UC  set , exhaust set , and ammo belts. It also came with Radus belts , airscale instruments , brass gun barrels , fasteners and grils , and Barracuda Wheels , and for a fantastic price. I have just added to it with eduard interior and instrument panel , with plans to add the metal legs from SAC  and radiator from Eduard. I have the Tamiya 1/32 Mosquito so i can use that as referrence to scratchbuild some details too. This will be my own most detailed one so far.
    Im very much looking forward to the journey. I like the Tamiya 1/32 mosquito , its exquiset , but to me the Airfix one is a bigger challenge and it has more "soul".
    Stay tuned , this will be a long one....

    This is the gorgeous Bandai Millennium falcon. Built from the box except for me mounting it on a cctv mount instead of the  kit display stand. I love this model. The engineering on its is amazing , so much detail.
