  1. I've used a couple of SMS paints and they are pretty good. I don't even bother to thin them they spray well straight from the bottle.
  2. I'm happy to see more kits and another manufacturer on the market but it's not doing much for me I have to say. I'm more of a Griffon Spit man but you know lets hope it sells well and they push on with other new kits. You'd get my attention with a 1/32 Fairey Battle though.
  3. This is a very nice kit, the detail is great, fit is near perfect and the decals are extremely nice, all 200+ of them. My only gripe is there was not enough room for me to get the nose weighted down, so I made up a little base for her to sit on. I really like Tiger Meet special markings and this is a cracker of a kit. It's painted in overall RLM 04 yellow, weathering kept down as she looked pretty good when on display. It seems this aircraft was kept in her tiger colours and put on a pole outside an airbase hanger.
  4. Yes it is bad, but I would like to pick you up on the statement that; hurricanes are getting worse because of global warming. There was a paper written a few years ago by one of the science academy's that the media and activists trumpeted and where much of this "hurricanes are getting worse" idea comes from, but the data they used was either flawed, or deliberately tampered with to arrive at the conclusion that hurricanes were getting worse. Long story short, they used data that removed any hurricane that did not cause economic damage. It was poor science and got thoroughly ripped apart. We face the same thing out here in Australia. We are constantly told that tropical cyclones are getting worse and more numerous, but a simple review of the numbers clearly indicates that the number of cyclones has gone down on average long with the number of severe ones.
  5. Always wanted to do a crashed aircraft, these day with all the engine detail coming in the box I might sell off some of my resin sets that I still have.
  6. No one ever went broke molding Focke Wulfs and 190's
  7. We in Melbourne just got harsher restrictions including a curfew. Now, please tell me how exactly, being locked at home between 9pm and 5am will stop the virus spreading? Does it spread further at night? The Premier also had a tantrum because some people gathered outside to drink some beers at a pub that was selling them as take away. The police were called, but determined the business and the people there had not broken any laws. However, this afternoon he banned removing your mask to drink beer. However I can still remove my mask to drink a coffee, or a cola. How petty and vindictive was that. Where is the science to say that drinking beer outside is more dangerous than drinking a coffee. They also closed skate parks for kids and banned using outdoor exercise equipment in parks. Really? Is the virus spreading in parks? No, no it isn't, in the next breath they were admitting that the virus is spreading because people are still having illegal gatherings like the 70 odd people who held an engagement party. So here we are, with harsher restrictions that are pointless all because some people didn't follow the restrictions already in place. Insanity, bloody insanity. Oh and if you were wondering, we had 20 cases today. In contrast, you guys in the UK are virtually free, despite having 20,000 cases a day. It seems Australia will never get out of the cycle of lockdowns and restrictions no matter how many people are vaccinated.
  8. Prime Minister just said that vaccination is not a path to end lockdowns, they are both to be used at the same time....well there's a great way to encourage people. Governments addicted to power, they will keep locking us in our houses no matter how many people are vaccinated, they just admitted it.
  9. I am not opposed to vaccination requirements to travel overseas. You are correct, it is nothing new, my dad tells me of having to get vaccinated against certain diseases back when he was travelling the world in the 70's. However what they are proposing out here and what is having to show your papers to get your hair cut, or visit a cinema or sporting event. Also some business' are trying to implement mandatory vaccination on their staff, which I believe could be illegal. It's certainly illegal to ask any health questions in a job interview, so I can't fathom how demanding staff be vaccinated isn't against the law.
  10. A vaccine so safe we need to indemnify the doctor from liability if he kills you.....yeh, that's really encouraging for people....yeeeesh. From what I hear from friends, you get asked 15 questions relating to your health and clotting now, which I think both my parents would fail. I am also opposed to this vaccine passport they want to introduce. What a good way to create two classes of people within society and what about those who do not carry a smart phone, like me.
  11. I ate a party pack of doritos today....that's how good a Saturday I was having.
  12. It's lockdown 5 in Melbourne although fortunately the panic buying seems to have stopped. I can barely be bothered getting out of my PJs all day at this stage.
  13. All I'll say is that no one ever lays on their death bed wishing they'd spent more time at work.
