There are better exact scale modellers than me, Fred Harris (ex replicast) from Southport, Adrian Gosling at Speedline and others but what I seem to be able to do is get models of fa...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

The word will get around so here it is direct from the horses mouth. I have sold my large Partially finished model of Crusader to Rich Marsh who will make a good job of it.

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Richie. I am a member of the UK model submariners association and will ask if there's any kits of that one.
I have an Radio control British WW2 S class with my own design dive system and a Russian Akula again with my own design RC system. Good fun.
Do you want a static or RC model?

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

I have been reading this thread with interest. Good stuff! I was about13 years old, 60 years ago, and an avid train spotter living in Ashington Northumberland. I have never forgotten the sound of a Deltic approaching at speed on its way South. It was 'Lancon Paddy' . Tremendous machines. Like many ...
