  1. Got that completely wrong on the H&S, I have the Ultra not the Infinity……
  2. Peter , I found on the ZM the canopies stayed in the open position through just good fit tolerances. It also allows me to close them up if I want to change the display……..I bought myself 18 months ago a H&S Infinity with 0.2 & 0.4 needles, just works effortlessly, I know they are entry level but works for me on a budget…….
  3. Stunning, congrats on two brilliant builds……..
  4. Tom, now that’s what I call a large scale model……..hope you have a big enough display case……..
  5. Peter, I rarely find anything on eBay these days but now and again you find a bargain……..the kit was amazingly difficult to find over here, reckon I bought the last one………..it’s on it’s way……
  6. Craig……..unbelievable…..superb……….words fail me…..
  7. Stunning Tom, we need to see a size comparison for this behemoth….
  8. Ron, I was wondering about your schedule as well, I can’t keep up with your builds………can we have a synopsis…….please….
  9. Stunning John as ever, for homemade decals there are impressive….congrats
  10. You’re right Ernie, drag racing or hot rods never hit the mainstream here. I grew up in a very rural environment and we had none of the those shenanigans……also in the UK engines of the time were pretty much standard 4 cylinder normally 1200 to 1500cc so no large lumps……….remember the Mini was 850cc …..
  11. Thanks Ernie, haven’t been TOS but I can imagine……..John whatever you decide, if you do commit it will be a work of art….
  12. For a change I have something to share, a good deal on Evilbay all three for the cost of one of them at RRP. I think Eduard have discontinued them though…..now to get the kit to put them on……..
  13. Mike, how big is your magnifying lenses, those bits are tiny, looking forward to an IM project….
  14. Both look stunning Peter, I did enjoy the ZM method of construction, maybe I should do another….
  15. Very nice Jerry, really clean build. I wanted to do the late -3 with the more traditional intermediate blue and plain stars…….but aggrieved at paying a third again for less decals and exactly the same kit…..
  16. Does anyone know if there exists early US insignia masks, just the star, no bar….. the F4F-3 comes with yellow wings scheme and the later version is another £15 more 😬…….so if I could find masks it would be good, spent nearly all day on this
  17. Nice haul Carl, even nicer to have a LHS so close……..but oh so dangerous…..
  18. Gaz, hats off to you for your perseverance on this one. I’ve binned a kit but this one would push me over…..
  19. Love to see your build Matt….
  20. Hans…….l, wow what an opener……congrats……love to see more of your work……
  21. Years ago, I reckon early 90’s when I was dabbling again at modelling I bought at a show, this……….together with this book. If I remember the guy wanted some ridiculous low money for both bits…….. somewhere I still have this as I remember trying to use it on a Monogram Wildcat………the book will be useful in the coming build…..
