  1. Hey Guys, I am currently building the 1/24th Airfix Typhoon and have found a good tip. If you wish to display the gun bays open I have found some ammo belts that may be better than the kit. Live Resin 1/16th scale .50 cal ammo belts are the same size (give or take 0.1mm or so....) as 20mm rounds in 1/24th scale, check the pics below: I am going to give these a go, laying the belts out on the wings in a re-arm state. I got them for just over £5 on ebay. Oh, and I haven't started a WIP thread as I don't really have anything to show as yet. Once I have something done I'll post some pics. Cheers, Chris.
  2. I'll be there both days on the IPMS Swindon table. New credit card at the ready!
  3. Cheers Guys, Jeroen, tracks are from Friul
  4. Got this done at last Trumpeter SU-152, metal barrel, Eduard PE set.
  5. Back from my US trip, and I did find a very cool museum to visit, the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, north of Dallas. A great place to visit with some superb WW1 aircraft, all flyers! Enjoyed wandering around for a few hours! I took loads of pics, a few below. If anyone wants to see the rest, here's the link to my Photobucket album http://s1181.photobucket.com/user/alpine00/media/Cavanaugh%20Flight%20Museum/DSC_0112_zps37058e5c.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Chris.
  6. The kit rocket heads are not as pointed as the Mosquito kit parts, Airfix seem to have fixed that issue. However they are still a little basic OOB so these AM ones will be a great improvement. The doubled up rockets will indeed look cool Doogs Chris
  7. Guys, Just found these. Metal and PE rockets from Profimodeller. They look sweet! http://www.profimodeller.com/detail/p24001-us-uk-hvar-rockets/ Chris.
  8. Nice start mate. I'm planning on starting mine maybe next week so i'm watching with interest Chris.
  9. Hey Guys, I'm in the US at the moment on a business trip, working in Fort Worth, Texas. Any of you Stateside guys know any good museums or attractions (of the military type) to visit in my downtime? Cheers people, Chris.
  10. Love that 410 Rick. There is one in a museum not too far from me in the UK at Cosford. If you need any particular detail shots let me know, any excuse to walk round there and I'll take it! Chris.
  11. Paid full price, a penny short of £100. I couldn't help it, it was just there......
