Thread: RAF100GB STORM WARNING! Tempestuous times revisited
27/01/2018 21:23:20

Hi Andy,

Nice to see this one nearing completion thumbs up​ My uncle Rex flew these with 5 Sqn on the North West Frontier in 1946. He tells the (amusing) tale of his first flight in one as a chapter in the book 'High Flyers' which was published for the 75th Anniversary of the RAF.

Hi Chris,
Tankfest is a superb show and well worth the visit but do remember to book tickets beforehand while they are still available. In recent years they sell out beforehand and you can't buy tickets at the gate on the day(s).

If you are in North Devon then you might like to try the Cobbaton Collection near Barnstaple, and details are in a feature in the Museum section from when Jay Wilkins visited a while ago, see his report here. Also near here, close to Braunton, are Saunton Sands, where the D-Day landings were practiced. Scenery in the area is first class so plenty to see in any trip.

As for RC Boats, then try the website and forum of on of Mil Mod's sister magazines, Model Boats. There is a link on the bottom of each page of this site but here is a direct link for you.
Hope that helps

Hi Bob,

As the others have said, sorry to hear about the ongoing health problems but I wish you well, With all the knowledge you have built up I am sure you will enjoy some building whenever you can. thumbs up

Hi Si,

I always like a small scale build wink 2​ and you've done a neat job with this one. UM do have some interesting subjects in their range (the Sherman with Aunt Jemima mine rollers comes to mind). Best of luck for your planned larger scale version. thumbs up

Hi Richard,

I'm a bit late in on this one but a super project and it looks like you are off to a good neat start. Great way of displaying the Walrus, and I look forward to following along with this one. thumbs up

I had a couple of new ones arrive this week. A Vietnam era 1/32 A-iJ Skyraider from Zoukei-Mura, which is a stunning kit, packed with

The other is a recent Trumpeter release, their 1/35 SA-13 Gopher. Again, lots of detail but having got it, not sure when I will build it, simply thanks to finding 111 individual track links for each track run and each track link has the two guide teeth to be fitted to each link - so making the tracks alone means 666 pieces! smile o

Adding the map and display case has worked really well, I am not surprised your colleague is pleased with it. Nicely done. thumbs up

Hi Bob,

Happy birthday first of all. cakebeerthumbs up

That's an impressive present from your mum, I guess it proves mum's never want their children to grow up wink 2​ and I am sure there must be a comment about 'size' in there somewhere but I'll leave that thought for now. smile

Best of luck for what will be a huge build (hope your garage is big enough to park it next to the car when builtsmile p)

Thanks Dave. For a relatively rare beastie, there is a surviving example that used to be at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland, but is now I understand at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, with the US Anti Aircraft Artillery Museum collection. thumbs up

Si, Thanks for your comments too. Yes, the Modelcollect range has some really nice kits in, well worth adding to 'that' list.wink 2

I have always had a soft spot for artillery models, and this one is not the big 1/35 Takom kit, but a recent 1/72 release from Modelcollect. Builds nicely, just with a base coat of colour on it so p
