  1. A couple more items have been added, most end Sunday evening (UK time)
  2. To share our experiences and learn from each other is what being part of the forums is all about as far as I'm concerned, I'm not aware of anyone ever trying to or be able to copyright a technique.
  3. All the above items have been sold, I've got some new items up this week, take a look here: Thanks for looking. Ant
  4. The Hawk your referring to wasn't actually in Squadron service, it was the station flight aircraft for RAF St. Athan (formerly the RAF's main fast jet deep maintenance base, sadly no more). IIRC there were 2 versions one with a Black Dragon on the standard Red, White & Blue trainer aircraft scheme and 1 with a Red Dragon on the later overall black trainer scheme.
  5. Hopefully the FB post will put to rest the negative posts and shut up the naysayers.
  6. I find my interest in all things Soviet and Russian has waned for the time being and would like to convert some of my stash into cash for future projects. I've got a small selection of kits but most come with aftermarket detail sets / parts all are 1/48 scale and are unstarted. See my listings here: Smer Sukhoi Su-7BMK Fitter, with Quickboost air scoops, Quickboost louvres and Pavla Ejection Seat Smer Sukhoi Su-17/22M3 Fitter, with Aires cockpit set and Quickboost air scoops. Smer Sukhoi Su-25UB/UBK Frogfoot 2 seater, with Eduard weapons pylons and Quickboost air scoops. GWH MiG-29 Fulcrum 9-12 early type GWH MiG-29 Fulcrum 9-13 Trumpeter MiG-23 Flogger B, with Aires cockpit set, Aires replacement ventral fin, Quickboost air scoops and Quickboost cannon barrels. Trumpeter Su-24M Fencer D with Quickboost dorsal air scoop. AMK MiG-31BM/BSM Foxhound with limited edition AMK upgrade set including die-cast undercarriage, tinted canopies, extra etch parts and additional decal sheet. Thanks for looking and happy modelling. Ant
  7. Lovely clean build, what's not to like.
  8. Hi Dave, If you look at the next picture in the sequence it shows a rear view of the same aircraft a split second after launch and it looks like more (certainly at least one more) GBU-31's on the opposite side.
  9. I accidentally sprayed the unprimed nosecone of an Academy MiG-21, and found they do adhere very well to bare plastic, although they do recommend spraying onto a primer.
  10. Yes AMK have already announced that the kit will have 2 sets of wings one with the open spoilers and dropped flap option and one for the clean look like the Tamiya kit.
  11. I've got the original The Small Shop set, and it does look like they now do other variations on a theme too.
  12. Beautiful builds of a beautiful aeroplane, I do love the Heller/Airfix kits, they don't fall together but treat them like a lady and they turn out very nicely
  13. Sincerest condolences from across the Atlantic, words can't express my sorrow at hearing this.
  14. I think you're going to be spot on:
  15. My moneys on a Black Lions jet next, or maybe a Red Ripper, perhaps even a Gunfighter, the again it could be a Vampire or Evaluator
