  1. Indeed. Back in those old days when this thread started, there was much more substance to threads, they were more informative and contained useful information. Now, threads simply deteriorate into slanging matches containing bad grammar and spelling - goodness knows, some threads need serious sub-editing. No, I no longer subscribe to threads - they just aren't the same as in the old days.......

    This one deserves double popcorn. I have this kit and am anxious to see what you make of it before I dive in.....!

    Indeed - all it needs is a blue glow......!
  4. Great Nephew .

    The moral of the story is that this young man actually has an interest in modelmaking - not necessarily to build them himself, but to enjoy them nevertheless. It is an encouraging starting point. Perhaps a move forward in the model making direction would be an Airfix Quick Build kit joint build, progressing to simple starter kits if the results are encouraging.

    Cheers, Seamus! If you ever get the chance to visit the States, try to build your trip around the Miramar air show - LOTS of Marine stuff there.

    Cheers, Paul. It is a small event, but growing, and I am hopeful that there'll be even more interesting stuff in future, given that there are two F-35 bases here in AZ.

  9. A small 'air event' at Flagstaff Airport this morning, attended by, amongst others, the US Marine Corps' HMLA-369 'Gunfighters' with their mix of UH-1Y and AZ-1Z helos.
  10. Have we lost the Battle of Britain Hall at Hendon

    Stop being the Voice of Reason, Matt - it'll get you nowhere.....
  11. Island Vis (Croatia) RAF monument

    No worries, glad to help! Croatia has a fascinating and complex history.
  12. Island Vis (Croatia) RAF monument

    Karlo - my wife's father was from Tugare, near Split. We visited relatives there in 2013, and I've fallen in love with the country. Beautiful place, lovely people. Jure - check out this Wikipedia article about the first Battle of Lissa (1811) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Lissa_(1811)
  13. Island Vis (Croatia) RAF monument

    Viš has a long and storied connection to the British military, including a period where the Royal Navy was based on the island during the Napoleonic Wars, culminating in the Battle of Lissa. During that period, cricket was introduced to the island, and there is now an annual competition for cricket clubs from the UK and Croatia each summer. The Royal Navy also had an MTB base there during WWII and as you've read, the RAF based squadrons on a makeshift airfield in the centre of the land. Post-war, the island became one vst military base during the Tito era, and only in the last 25 years has is opened up to tourists again. It's a place I wanted to visit during my trio to Split in 2013, but we never made it. Next time......
