  1. I just checked and the last time I posted was 2006. there are a lot of new names, and thankfully a lot of the old names too, I've Spent most of the day (don't tell my boss) checking out the forums catching up on the posts of those who have gone and the ups and downs of some of your lives. It's good to be back home..... but why the heck is the Moai Vincent thread still going 😀
  2. I dealt with them a year or two back, no problems at all. Shipping was fairly quick and well packaged item. regards
  3. Some great shots Ken.. seems you're getting very handy with the DSLR. regards
  4. from Bloomberg.com Hornby Plc (HRN LN): The maker of Scalextric model car- racing kits, and Revell AG, a German model company, may be among potential buyers for privately-owned Humbrol Ltd. (48319Z LN), the owner of Airfix Ltd., the London-based Times said, without saying where it got the information. The shares rose 1.25 pence, or 0.5 percent, to 261.75 pence. regards
  5. yep, i agree £100 for the TSR is making people lots of cash. I thought about putting my Buccs on Ebay, i bought the complete airwaves set for mine. Wonder how much that would go for
  6. It's not a blunder, there are two kits, two sets of instructions and a decal sheet for the 5 different variants. It was meant as a limited run. And it's already £15 over what i paid for my mint copy. That's a good return for gathering dust. :P

    heres one, try the various manufacturer sites, the may have more. this one is from LM. LM engine photo
  8. As the description says, this is not a good trader alert, but i thought it should be posted here. I really cannot describe how humbled i am by the generosity of our very own "Breadboard". Hal has gone the extra mile for many of the ARC community, and today i became on of those people. Hal, from the bottom of my heart, i thank you, i am truly grateful for your gift and it will be taking pride of place in my modelling room. I have purchased a frame in which it will be housed and displayed along with the plaque that describes where it has been. Mike(Waco), i am extremely grateful for the ef
  9. Nice Typhoon, Number 3 Squadronseems to be operating a few aircraft in this scheme. Nice. :)
  10. I would welcome some feedback guys, as many already know Leuchars was difficult this year, mostly because the sun was out all day, not something that usually happens :D
  11. Interior done, fuselage halves joined, other bits and bobs on - sprayed with Mr Surfacer to fill the awful bits. The Gnat is also nearly done. I have been spurred on a bit by this GB. Pics of the Gnat soon, here's the Hawk so far. regards And for the Gnat, i managed to screw up in getting the lightning flash but i'll sort it with stock decal sheet. It's an old and tired moulding, but with some work it looks ok(ish). Canopy still to be done, the plastic has some crazing, so i'm wondering if i should do a vac one. Seats are awful currently contemplating making new ones from scratch.
  12. I'm going to use some artistic license because, just like F16's There are no two the same. Barley Grey looks way darker than this one, although in the air it looks similar :blink: Raf Leuchars had a single seater and a twin seater on flying displays both were different. example
  13. Along with my Hawk 127 i'm thowing in a Folland Gnat i'm actually building fo someone else. I have been making great progress this week with both. regards
  14. Whilst it might be fitting to open this up to all models, i have to agree that it would be pertinent to restrict this build to aircraft only. Once the position is clearer regarding the Airfix/Heller/Humbrol situation then we could consider a tribute if need be, but i am not against the idea of a complete catalogue group build if the powers that be are in agreement. regards
  15. I'm in BAe Hawk 127 RAAF no 79 Squadron, basically oob. regards
  16. I'm having the same problem. There are a few good websites that have some good images, but nothing that is really detailed. Doo a google image search and see what comes back. HTH regards
  17. I agree with you Jack, well done Anthony. Congrats on your 1st place
  18. Not very exiting i'm afraid but here it is.....
  19. i got mine today, there is a lot of detail inside on the floorspace, tiedowns etc, an the rest doesn't look too bad, let me get some pics up for you. regards
  20. Wonderland Models in Edinburgh( 0131 229 6428) has the Gulf Spirit version, for £9.99 at the moment or at least they did have. I'm sure i saw them the other day. Better than the 16.99 that hannants charge. They mail order too. regards
  21. Whilst not up to the standard of some of the other 1/32 builds here in the recent past, i thought i'd post my effort with this debateable kit. I've only had to deal with a dodgy intake, but the rest was ok-ish. I knew there was a lot to this kit, but if you've never built an Academy 32nd kit, be prepared for lots of work :wacko: anyhoo, theres still loads more to do as can be seen in the pic, that includes my FOD covers :D PS, weegie if your'e up for a beer soon, let me know when you are free.
  22. I have that boxing too, and i know where i can get another, do you think that's overkill regards
  23. We're talking paint....right Start at one side, continue in a steady line until you reach the end of the object and release. Repeat ad-nauseum. When it comes to weathering, its spots and mists(from a distance) regards
  24. RN Seaking doing a Search and Rescue over the Firth of Forth, probably a diver getting into difficulties. The only photo i got was from miles away.
  25. Gary, I've got some courtesy of another ARC'er , let me find them and i'll post em up. regards Here you go, take what you need. Pic 1 380k ish Pic 2 900k ish Pic 3 900k ish
