  1. Thanks for the hard work Sean. Sorry I can't help but its probably a bot rather than an actual dude. Prob best to disable new members for a bit?
  2. Yes, quite regularly nowadays. Ironically a Matchbox; https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=12448&p=albums&album=93596 Not a Matchbox; https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=12448&p=albums&album=73754 https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=12448&p=albums&album=84947 https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=12448&p=albums&album=84957 And another Matchbox; https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=12448&p=albums&album=13856
  3. Don't remember this, but I use scalemates where I can get a pdf of my stash. No help I know but maybe an alternative...
  4. Bump. Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone. (Or St Paddy's Day. Or just Paddy's day. There is no other version). The highlight of my day will be watching some of the WEC race from Sebring later. Go Iron Dames..
  5. Hi. I'm a bit of a stranger here myself. This place is a lot quieter than the old days, but still well worth visiting. I do try to spend more time building than on the net but it's a struggle.
  6. Looking for some crew figures in 1/72 scale, Hasegawa SH-60/UH-60 crew for my Airfix SeaSprite and Fujimi Sea King kits (3 sets needed) Monogram SR-71 crew for my Italeri SR-71 and Airfix U-2. Can buy or trade, have some nice Monogram F-4 figures going spare. Thanks Roy.
  7. I also plan to use a Matchbox kit as the first prototype but having built it before, and the Airfix kit too, I'm wondering if the workload to bring it up to a common display standard of my more recent kits is too big. I'm seriously considering scratchbuilding the prototype wing gloves on a Hasegawa early kit using the Matchbox kit as a guide. Or maybe a new tool Academy one, haven't seen one yet. If you use the Airfix kit it really needs replacing the fins, burner cans and main undercarriage (or at least wheels).
  8. To add to a couple of Airfix SH-2 and Fujimi SH-3 kits. I did a Hasegawa Seahawk back in the day and remember the supplied crew looked good. If you have some to spare I'll gladly take them. Not sure if the same figures are in the Black Hawk kits, I've never seen one. Thanks Roy
  9. Slightly off topic but has anyone ever tried 1/48 stencils on a 1/32 kit, and 1/72 on a 1/48? More in scale maybe?????
  10. I love your way with words. Thanks for the entertainment!
  11. Hi all, Dutch, that info is exactly what I was looking for. Many many thanks. Yes, the S-61N will be the Whirlybits conversion with Revell parts. And from Rod D, that means I can use the CH-3 VIP kit for the SH-3G. Yay! Am I correct in thinking the SH-3G is effectively the same airframe as the H? (My plan was the Airfix SH3D kit for the G). As for the Airfix kits, Hajo and Rod, well I have them so might as well use them. I can always use leftover bits from the Revell kits to dress them up. Besides, the SH-3D is a very early release so is crisply moulded. The HAR.3 not so much
  12. Hi all, I've finally got HS-9 decals from HAD on the way for my Nimitz collection which I intend to put on my Fujimi kit of the SH-3H. I'm assuming this kit will have all I need for a Sea Griffin's bird. However, I also have an old Superscale sheet 72-391 that has a Nimitz based SH-3G from HC-2. I'm not totally up on what the differences are between marks but I do have the following kits in the stash to mix and match from: the VIP issue of the Fujimi kit (no mark given, just SH-3), the old tool Airfix SH-3D, the old tool Airfix HAR.3 and two copies of the Revell HAS.6/AEW. One of th
