I wish you all teh best for the future, it's been fun.

To all my good friends on UKAR, thanks so much for the support and encouragement over the years.

I've decided to quit modelling for the foreseable future. I'm not quite sure how I have come to this point, but I have.

Fond regards,

Alan

Re: Next round of Group Builds- Ideas?

The USAAF GB was supposed to start the 1st November and I posted that I wasn't able to run it and could anyone step in................. :tumbleweed:

I don't build aircraft so much these days, so I'll join in as and when a GB takes my fancy.

Not sure I have got this right. I wanted to show the tank darker than surroundings as the Panzer Grey is slightly coming through. Oh well, here it is. Pz Rgt 8, 15 Pz Division, DAK, North Africa http://i360.photobucket.com/albums/oo48/Le_Deacon/IMG_5563_zpsde7eb2af.jpg Cheers Deacon

Re: Matchbox Armstrongg Whitworth Siskin IIIA

People can be pretty snobbish about those old Matchbox kits, when with a little effort and skill, we can see they don't turn out half-bad. Think I must have built most of the range back in the day, when these kits were a whopping 99p each at our local toyshop. Never built the Siskin though. Did man...

Really enjoyed this build.

Re: New to modeling

I've always brush painted and airbrushed acrylics and see no reason for me to ever change to enamels. Then you can only be about 10 because those of us who'd have been doing this for half a century (aaaaaah) only had enamels or paints made using crushed blackberries! Nope, I just try to keep the da...
