|Thread: Out of office|
Welcome to Sofie and congratulations to both you and your wife. Now you have many happy family years ahead to look forward to.
|Thread: Man Jin Kim painted figure|
Congratulations, what a really super prize to win. The figure looks great, you are right to be well pleased.
|Thread: Passing on the Baton...|
Thank you very much for your good wishes. It will be at the end of this year that I will work with Tom Cole, the current editor, to learn what needs to be done to take over as Tankette editor for 2018, as it goes into its' 53rd year. In case there are any others still unfamiliar with it, Tankette is the magazine for the members of MAFVA, published 6 times a year. I was honoured to be asked to take it on and am really looking forward to it.
|Thread: The New Contemptables Society or the "D'you mind if we don'ts?"|
Having seen for myself how much work you put into the project (as well as the external trenches) I am really sad to hear the project has been scuppered, it was coming along so well. All the best to you and Russ along with your helpers for all the work you put in.
|Thread: Spots on Facebook|
The Morris C8 with 25pounder is included in their new catalogue for this year, but not the CS8.
With reference to the Tracked Rapier, unfortunately this is not a plastic kit from AFV Club, but a resin kit in their Hobby Fan range I understand.
|Thread: TYPE-89 Japanese Medium Tank KOU Gasoline early. 1/72|
This looks very nicely done, and interesting for being a small scale Japanese tank kit.
|Thread: The Battle of Britain|
Well, you've got me with that sky scape alone, magic Best of luck for the project.
|Thread: Spots on Facebook|
As a fan of all truck kits, these look good, thanks for sharing.
I also see that Riich Models are venturing into 1/72 armour and have announced both the M109A2 and the M109A6 Paladin. Only box art but nice to see them venture into the smaller scale.
Bit more here.
|Thread: British A9 and A10 Cruiser Tanks - new models announced|
Yes, one of these would be good to go with the Scammell Transporter.
Yes, both Gecko and Bronco have announced an A10, though they are different kits. As per my news (see link above) I understand the Gecko kit is a 100% new tooling, and will include interior detail as well as a crew figure, though as already mentioned, we have yet to see any plastic as it isn't due to be on sale until summer as I understand.
The first two armour kits plus the figure were indeed announced about a month ago, the news today is of two more tank kits, bringing the total to 4 now.
|Thread: IBG 1/35 Scammell Pioneer SV2S|
I haven't seen the IBG kit but lots of room for differences it seems. You might be interested to see this photo showing a line of 4 (2 petrol engines and 2 later diesels) and plenty of differences to see. This was taken at the main REME museum collection at Borden back in 2008
|Thread: A very sad day for the family...|
Yesterday was a rather tearful day, especially when telling our children about their gran, but I'd like to say a huge thank you for all your kind messages, they are really appreciated.
Last year my mum celebrated her 100th birthday. Today, at the age of 100 years and 8 months, my mum passed away peacefully. She had a remarkable and long life, being born when the Battle of the Somme was just 1 month old. Now however, she is finally at peace. God bless her.
|Thread: Get well soon Mike Durnford|
Get well soon Mike.
|Thread: HMS King George V passing the North Cape,heading for Murmansk.|
Excellent Just goes to show what you can do with smaller scale models too.
|Thread: 2017 Anti Aircraft Group Build (AAGB17)|
Carl, Bobby, both of you are doing fine jobs on the 88s, which are coming along nicely.
One I have been working on sits quite nicely under the banner for this group, the Patriot launcher from Dragon. Built so far, so paint next when I can decide which scheme to go for (desert sand or European camo)
(you can see more photos here if you are interested)
|Thread: I've got this unknown item|
