Thread: Totally off topic (travel in SW UK, model boat shows?)
14/01/2018 12:57:55

Much obliged all!! Maybe we can somehow get to TankFest and the Chickerell Steam & Vintage show.

I wonder whether us Colonials can access the Royal Signals Museum or if you need a UK passport? I think I might have been able to get one once upon a time (both my parents were born in the UK during the war) but I've never pursued it.

Non-military suggestions especially welcome... I might be able to get my parents to drop me off at one place while they go somewhere else, but my mother's interest in such things is absolutely nil. She's very interested in the Elizabethan period for what it's worth.

I have my eye on a used bookstore in Plymouth with a couple of titles I could buy through abebooks... but if I could avoid paying postage? Though the weight of "souvenirs" is an issue, good point Paul!

I had no idea about T.E. Lawrence's house, or Clovelly, or Cobbaton!

Places did visit way back in 1991: HMS Belfast, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Salisbury Cathedral (I'm pretty sure)

Very much obliged!

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Every time I go away my momentum to model gets reset to 0. And I decided to start over on the rack for my Matilda because I looked at it and it was a sorry mess. I hope to get back to it soon - I now have a little sheet of iron and some magnets to hold things in place which I'd like to try. EXCEPT that I just pulled something in my shoulder and visited a clinic today about it.

Aaaaanyway the above has nothing to do with this post whatsoever. face 20

After a chance comment my father made, when I was planning to go to a live vehicle event, I am now planning on a trip with my parents to the UK this June, with the only focal point being TankFest at the Tank Museum. We would otherwise be roaming through Dorset, Devon, and Cornwall.

My dad makes scale radio-controlled boats now, but he doesn't participate in any online forums. I was wondering if anyone knows of such? I am looking to find out if there are any RC model boat shows at that time in the area.

Also, any places you particularly like in those areas? I know there's a lot, so what about anything a little off the beaten track?

Thread: I say, you down there, we have a problem, any chance you can help us out?

Hey, just stopping in - that is a great model and your work on the ice is fantastic.

Ripping yarn, too :D

Super interesting choice of build! Will watch it with interest.

Welcome Ralph!

This is a great and super friendly forum. I'm sure you'll fit right in. And I don't think ever seen a judgmental comment about any of my dumb questions so I suggest you fire away!

Pete, are you making Max's interceptor?!?

I have watched Fury Road more times than anything else released in the past 10 years...

Thread: Another shop to close
01/12/2017 12:37:27

That's a terrible shame, Simon. Rent is definitely something to be considered - it's why the only model shops in my city are in an eastern and much less fancy district.

Too bad he couldn't keep on in a different location.

I'm planning a series of 64 vignettes showing various stages of the narrative of Hoffnung's "The Bricklayer's Lament"...

Had a package notification yesterday and I could NOT remember what it was for! ... A small tool for small scratch building. Note the dimensions!

The mm measurements at the corner go right to the corner which might not be good (prone to damage) if it wasn't made of metal.

Very much on the small-scale production end - 1/48 resin - can you guess what this conversion kit is for? I'm just tickled pink that Mike Belcher has finally made it! I thought this was a dead project. I hope I can pick mine up from him this week and save on postage.







It is a conversion of the Tamiya Cromwell to the postwar Charioteer tank destroyer! Really nifty.

Paging Peter Day... Peter Day to the painting forum!

(I use Vallejo Model paint with a bit of airbrush thinner, but I don't have wide knowledge.)

Just back home. Seemed to be even busier than usual. Some real eye candy around. Met quite a few MilMod members and enjoyed a chat and a laugh. As usual the car parking was a $*&£(*7!!!!! angry 2 The Telford Centre car park was full by 9.30! Got what I wanted and also a load of stuff I didn't even know I needed until I saw it face 20

Sounds like a great day, and a promising one for the hobby, jimbo!

Hope to see pics of your haul shortly

Hi Bobby,

I feel like anything I can say would be inadequate, but I know you loved Teddy and I'm really sorry for your loss.

I think post-WW2, but other than that, I don't know.

Hi Steve, you're most welcome! I read Tramp and other books by Forbes in the 1980s and that's how the author's name stuck with me.
