Re: Not The Way To Social Distance at Airports

Surely the highly skilled ground crew should have put chocks in front of each set of wheels to avoid the aircraft running away after being sat in the same place for 3 months whilst leaking brake pressure? It's not rocket science, is it? Being "highly skilled" ground crew myself, i have to say that ...

I believe it is now the whole of the UK. Fines for Scotland have been set at (the slightly random figure of) £480 I think, although fines in Wales and NI have not yet been established. Its only random if you dont know the mechanism on how that figure is calculated. I was once told, but not somethin...

Re: Edward Colston statue removal,your views.

Its a tad disingenuous to say that people dont know about Edward Colston and the way he made his money. There has been enough coverage of him over the last few years for many people to, maybe not name him, but link his name to his shameful part of British history, something i remember covering as a ...

Re: Revell 1/32 Messerschmitt Bf-109K-4

Really nice as usual Derek. Everything seems in more realistic proportion the larger the scale - hard to explain. As a 1/72 builder, i struggle at times to get the subject looking right in a picture. Always put it down to how lenses work at different focal lengths and grabbing a bit of distance usua...

Re: Air brush and Compressor, recommendations please

Andy,
I can only second what Seamus says as it was his fault that i bought one of the 130s originally, then moved onto a 116C.

As for compressor, i have one similar to the Bartsharps with a tank.

Re: 1/72 Airfix Lightning F2A

Blackbird, the paint was Alcald II but cant remember which one!

Fumbles, thank you very much. There are flaws along the way with this, but if there was one kit that got attention along the way over the last year, it was this as i tried to get as many of the flaws hidden as possible.
