Re: Quickbuild British armoured cars

As a general note it would be great to see AF extending the full range of quick build kits rather than duplicating PSC/other manufacturers releases. To be fair on the guys at Armourfast... they were first & others then followed them! Also, again being fair, unfortunately, whilst modellers & gamers ...

Re: Aerials

The problem with hard aerials is that you can bet your boots as to who will be the first one to get attacked by them & it won't be the person who (as Sarge831 is hinting at) some Oik wanting to pick up your creation! Also, I've seen stretch sprue used, but this (as are many other "hard" suggestions)...

Re: Welcome all!

Hi Bart,
For details & photos of existing kits & to purchase them, you need to go onto the main Armourfast website.
There's not (that I know of!) a Facebook group, yet... it's taken Tracy long enough nagging to get me back in the saddle with moderating the forum :lol:

All we ask is to respect each other, and us, of course, and treat this as a place you would like to call home, for your Armourfast modelling. If you have any problems with other membe...
