A model is being touted on the internet at present and apart from the fact that it is going to turn out to be a very expensive model to complete (Free with first magazine type of thing) It seems a shame to me that it doesn't mention how many magazines have to be bought to get the total amount of bits and pieces needed.
Now the bit that is niggling away at me every time I see the advert is they keep calling it "The HMS Victory" When will they learn that it doesn't make sense to say "The Her/His Majesties Ship Victory"
I know even Brumas will tell me to get a life! Ah well I feel better to get that off my chest...
john bunyan... all very nice but guess one of the first things that made me cringe when reading the descriptions of the models,yes you have guessed it "The HMS Victory" How could they?
By the way we have an ex-Royal Marines butcher in our branch, I actually served with him at one time. His hands are like shovels, but he can turn out wonderful ship models with no training and all his bits and pieces are scrounged, we know where he developed the scrounging talent of course. But where he picked up the talent is any-body's guess.
