  1. What has one finger and is very demanding? A ransom note.
  2. My nephew came to me and told me that he had a part in the school play as a man who has been married for 25 years. "Never mind," I told him. "Perhaps you'll get a speaking part next time."
  3. I suggest your LMS owner is at best behind on his facts, at worst telling porkies, 'cos all of that is a pile of crock, I'm afraid. Airfix/Hornby has NEVER had a £350 minimum order, and in recent months it has been lowered from £300 to £100- ideal for small shops, and a most welcome change in policy -and lower than Hannants' minimum order. Yes, even the Big H has a minimum order for traders. Furthermore, I've never had to order 6 or 8 or 10 of a kit from Airfix. In multiples of two yes, but even that has now been removed for higher value items. And I can guarantee that Hannants prices for traders are not cheaper than Airfix. Not at all. I have been very critical of Hornby where I've felt it has been necessary, and while I still have one or two niggles the people now running the company seem to realise that they need to work with independent retailers rather than treat us as an encumbrance. As a result things have improved greatly in recent months. I've got good stocks of red boxes, direct from Airfix and via wholesalers. Not everything is available all the time, but that's part of the game.
  4. Apparently, so I found out yesterday, my great-great-great-grandfather was on the Titanic. And as far as I know, still is.
  5. I went to see a clairvoyant today. I knocked on her door and she shouted, "Who is it?" So I left.
  6. It is on their discontinued list, so get it while you can.
  7. A bit unfair, Mike. Many people don't have lots of money to spend on their hobbies.
  8. These things do happen (RAF Germany 1982: Phantom 1, Jaguar 0), but the account suggests to me that by joining up with the RF-4 at the tanker and then following him to the exercise area Dorsey knew exactly who was flying the Phantom and what he was about to do, and indeed made that decision twice as the first missile failed to launch.
  9. Tamiya have a brand loyalty beyond anything else in scale modelling, even more than Airfix. Suggest to some 1/35 builders that they try another brand and you'll be looked at in the same way as if you'd outed yourself as a worshipper of Satan. This is sad as I think Tamiya are in danger of becoming reliant on their back catalogue and being overtaken by the likes of Takom or Meng, young whippersnappers who are building good reputations for themselves. And when you consider that Tamiya's Mk.IV Male is third best after the Meng and Takom offerings, both of whom have gone ahead with other marks, Females, Tadpoles and Hermaphrodites, to say nothing of other tanks of the period, it's not hard to see why.
  10. Somebody threw cheese at me today. It wasn't mature.
  11. I thought I was good in bed. Until I realised she has asthma.
  12. Behind every angry woman is a bewildered man wondering what he's done now.
  13. Hey, Spookytooth... Your chicken certainly fears no evil as he walks through the valley of the shadow of death.
  14. Has to be Irish Air Corps for the Marchetti. Spare slot, did you say? XR244 Auster AOP.9 by Martin Schofield, on Flickr XP820 de Havilland-Canada Beaver AL.1 by Martin Schofield, on Flickr XX654 Bulldog T.1 by Martin Schofield, on Flickr G-BVSD Sud-Aviation SE3130 Alouette II by Martin Schofield, on Flickr K4972 Hawker Hart Trainer MkIIA by Martin Schofield, on Flickr G-AZWT Westland Lysander Mk.IIIA by Martin Schofield, on Flickr Just one or two thoughts...
  15. A few kits is one thing, but I have seen clubs with several boxes of stuff for sale and/or piles on top of the table, and happily not paying a trader's fee as they are exhibiting as a club. I'm fairly sure I know what the result would be if I brought along a dozen kits for display along with my stock and tried to argue that I was an exhibitor rather than a trader. It's quite simple: you want to trade, pay a trader's fee like those of us trying to run a business.
