5.0 out of 5 stars Toot Toot Thomas saves the weekends, 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once more Amazon have amazed me with the speed of delivery.

The product has been purchased with my grandson in mind, he loves playing on his parents tablets but as far as his Gramps (that's me) is concerned he needs some quality time with me, and who better to spend it with but Thomas.

I decided that I could not wait for him to come and that I didn't want to disappoint him when he turned up so the only thing to do was to unwrap the package and make sure it was suitable for Gramps and Grandson time.
With bated breath I slipped the disc into the machine and settled down to ensure a thorough test was carried out. The joy that lit up my face as the familiar tune sang out and assaulted my senses. The thrills and excitement that washed over me as our little blue friend and the other engines chuffed around on their adventures. 1 hour later I knew I had made the right choice, while he is with Gramps no electronic mind stealing beeps and boings oh no weekend visits will be filled with toot toots on the screen and re-enactment of Thomas adventure on the island of rug.

Thank you Thomas, thank you Amazon another young mind shall learn the value of play.

One very happy Grandparent is now anticipating a Happy Grandchild.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new mold kit from Airfix, 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent kit for those looking for more detail than 1:72 scale affords. The model goes together well and has some nice touches.
Decals for 2 desperate planes are included, but you also get enough spare parts to enable you to build at least 3 varieties of this craft and with a bit of research I think you could build 5 versions. Well not build you can only build one version but five choices.
The cockpit is nicely detailed and offers enough scope for a decent representation of the real thing.
The plans are nice and clear,easy to follow.
You get diagrams for two paint jobs, but remember you need glue and paint to complete the kit.
Came well packaged and on time.
A good price for a great kit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Biased and unbalanced, 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh dear, a book I was looking forward to reading but the authors own views come through too strongly. If your going to write history it should be about presenting the facts and not opinions. Far too biased on the royalist side, doesn't give a balanced account of the situation leading g up to the execution of the king and then seems to relish in the hunting down of those who signed the paper.
I for one won t be looking for further works by this author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much fun, 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dalmax Men's Morris (App)
Didn't enjoy at all SO never makes a mistake unlike a human opponent would and so you have very little chance of winning a game. I have and do play thus against real people and know how much fun it can be. Thus to my middle d misses the point of board games, should be played with people not cold machines

Another adult western, written well. Good fun read, there are loads of Gunsmith books so even if it's not high literature there is a market for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit for the garden, 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what I wanted. Was sick of having to scramble around in the bushes to get other people's rubbish out of my garden. This does the job brilliantly, is long enough to get at this hard to reach spots. The head swivels to give you different angles of approach to the offending object. It is robust and I don't foresee any problems with it.

Came well packaged and on the date it said it would.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling adventure for both sexes., 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb book, I bought the kindle version as my paper copy is a little battered. In a time where fantasy/adventure books are all in a similar vein this stands out head and shoulders above the dross.
At its heart is a love story and not just any old love but true love, it's also about revenge and friendship.
If you haven't seen the film read this watch that and then buy a copy to give to a friend everyone needs true live in their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Airfix at its best, 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just finished this superb little kit, and would highly recommend it to any modeller.
The level of detail for thus scale 1:72 is top class and reflects well on Airfix as a company going forward. Thus is the fabric Mk 1 version of this plane and you get parts to build 2 different versions. Some parts are very small and fiddly ie: the landing gear and detail in the wheel wells so maybe not for a young first time modeller, but it does give you the option of having wheels raised so you can ignore that problem. If you have wheels raised some kind of stand will be needed to display the finished item, unless of course your going to fly them on your ceiling.

Paint and glue will be needed to finish off the kit and you get plans for 2 paint schemes and 2 sets of decals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Kit Very Neat, 15 Feb. 2016
Just getting back into model making after years and years away. Decided on a whim to do this wee beastie and wasn't disappointed in anyway. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The fit of the parts was excellent, I chose to sew the tracks together and not use heat to seal them but that was a personal preference and not a criticism of the model.
Be aware some of the parts are really small and the use of tweezers is recommended to position them correctly.
You will need a decent cement and good brushes/paints to complete the kit, but if your getting back into this hobby you knew that anyway if your new then you will be ble to use them on your future projects.

All in all very happy, will do another when my skills improve in a different paint scheme.
