Re: E3G Sentry and more

Inspired! - confirms my belief that modellers never look at anything without thinking of a use for it in their models!

The E-3 does come up nice too doesn't it?

David Hart's Space Ships

The DSC-2: a Kit from the Dawn of Time makes a Spacecraft of an Alternate Future I’ve been making “What Ifs” for fifty years now. My proudest modelling moment was when Mike McEvoy mentioned my 1/72 1985 P.1121 (Take one 1/72 and one 1/100 F-105 . . .) in his “Tailpiece” column. Now, as a regular ex...

Re: Figureworld North (Easingwold, York) 2024

Lovely job Team T&E! Really sorry I couldn't make it (I really need to borrow Huw's Time machine) Used to do a lot of figures so would have been good to see. Great they gave you a bigger display space - as ever I see the Multi-Role Combat SIG rose to the occasion! I saw that 'Luft 46' diorama at...

Thanks Tim

As you say crackin' day out and to cap it off Huw took the trophy for 144 with his Javelin!

Magic roundabouts...Milton Keynes May 25th 2024

ModelKraft has moved to a new venue - still a school campus but lighter and airier than the previous and certainly easier to park. Catering was very good too, but due to the decision to get as many clubs and traders in as possible we were allocated only one six-foot table. Consequently only David an...

Ahhh....de Havilland May 2024

A number of SIG members visited the DeHavilland museum on Sunday for what turned out to be a quite delightful show at the recently re-furbished museum, home to no less than three actual Mosquitos. Amongst the wonderful museum aircraft were a surprisingly large number of traders and clubs. Terry had...

Scottish Nationals, Perth 2024

Once again the SIG sallied forth for the two-day Scots nats on 27 / 28th April. The Dewar Centre is an excellent location and we had ample space to eventually show no less than 315 models (plus another 20 or so on Alastair's club stand) something of a record I think. Special mention for Connor who n...

Re: Museum of first jets

Great display Yves! You may have spotted I have a liking for early jets - especially the German ones - The Horten looks futuristic even now. It also shows a recurring theme that 144 does so well - groups and collections. Right from our early days with Terry's British helicopter and Schneider trophy ...
