Thread: Farmhand 90

Interesting site. I think the farmhand would easily be customised as Dusty

11/09/2013 21:48:14

Any updates? I'm tempted to get this to make "Dusty" from the new movie Planes for my grandson.

That's a shame. I'll keep watching for a bit before I commit to buying one.

I'm a Loadmaster instructor on the real thing, based in Seville. It is pretty impressive and I intend building the Tony Nilhuis version eventually.

Currently Building the Warbirds Replica LA7. It's the new larger 91 sized kit.

Very nice, my first foray into building. Highly recommended.

Thread: Not an easy morning

Some of you already know but my 18 year old son died in may this year in an accident.

I can tell you that there is no logic, no sense to the grief, guilt and loss the parents will be experiencing. But one thing that makes a huge difference is the support of friends and the knowledge that their child was loved and respected by friends and peers.

My sons funeral had around 400 people attend and we had cards and letters from hundreds more who couldn't attend or bear to attend, many expressing their grief in private messages. Bizarrely Facebook has been a brilliant place for young people to express themselves, something I would previously have shied away from.

If you feel you can show them that support then go, but no-one should think any less of you if you can't bear it.

Thread: What Warbird?

A big vote here for the Warbirds Replica kits. There's a video build of the LA7 on YouTube so you can see the build.

Quality kits at a nice price, bags of opportunities to add scale detail. Not ARTF and not a full bag of balsa build. A stepping stone between you might say.

I love the PP figures. If they are badly cast, he will usually swap it for you. As for small holes, I fill them with lightweight filler, or for bigger holes I use model filler. Some of the tiny holes go away when you prime the figure.
As for paints, I use Tamiya acrylics / Citadel (Warhammer) acrylics and paint the figure however I visualise the correct colours to be - whether accurate or not.
Thread: Black Horse Pc-9 lost on take off

Really sounds like a stall on take off. Identical to my leccy Seagull Sea Fury, also lost on its maiden.

If you go to the Nats you may get what you want at the Sunday morning swapmeet ! There's usually bargains to be had.

First warbird? Hangar9 P47 Thunderbolt.
Thread: Warbird Replicas Spitfire/Mustang?
06/07/2011 17:01:28
If you are set on a warbird the Hangar 9 P47 (60 size) flies like one, as does the WR LA7 I believe.

Get across to


And have a look there. He's done a few step by step builds of these kits, with the latest (LA7) being on video

Dear mods, I am using my iPhone and can't embed a link properly, sorry. Forgive me.

Thread: E-scale Supermarine Seafire
24/06/2011 13:46:48
Not so Tim.

I picked mine up today and it comes with a leccy conversion kit and manual which covers conversion.

Overall first impressions are good but the pilot must go. Now... leccy or glow? Seems a shame to cut the cowl, but leccy will sound rubbish on a Seafire.
Thread: Crab inadvertently owns FAA!
24/06/2011 13:43:09
Hi, a cryptic title perhaps, but as ex RAF (crab) the irony of my latest purchase is not wasted on me...

I just bought a Sea Fire, which with my Sea Hurricane (VQ) and Sea Fury (Seagull - needs refurb) means I now have 3 combat proven carrier born fighters Which is 3 more than the real Fleet Air Arm!
Thread: World Models Tucano 60 - Leccy or 91 4st?
24/06/2011 13:37:34
Well.... Money is sort of an object, in that if I don't need to spend it, I won't.

I'll run up the existing motor and have a think.
