  1. As a diversion you could try these John. They are well made models by Airfix all new moldings using a top calss plastic. They go together well. I found them a joy to build. Airfix Herrick range. Landrovers, Coyote, Jackal, Quad Bikes, Warrior. To go with those the Merlin & Lynx Helicopters. The Merlin is a superb build. Laurie
  2. More progress but this time sorting which and what go on the pylons. Thanks to Nick Greenall, reply above, with all the info. supplied I have made up this list. The remainder of the pictures are of the weapons listed. Laurie http:// http:// ]http:// http:// http:// http://
  3. I prefer to build them rather than collect them. Laurie
  4. Nick that is great news and very kind of you to spend the time. Very grateful and I am sending a PM. Laurie
  5. Calm down people. We are all here to help each other. Laurie PS and have a little smile.
  6. Mike put it in a container of hot water. Obviously you need to hold it with a towel but it will then squeeze out very well. Putting it into a micro wave may actually dry the stuff. Laurie
  7. I spy the Trilander. Mainstay of the travel between Jersey, Guernsey and Aldreney. Aurigny Airlines. Retired now. The famous one was JOEY a children's character. All painted yellow with a bright red nose and eyes painted on the front . A business man is looking after her and being kept as a museum piece in Guernsey. Matter of interest : Latin names Aurigny : Alderney Sarnia : Guernsey Caesarea : Jersey
  8. Not only the Viscounts.Jersey used to have a number Vickers Vanguards landing here. From memory there was only just enough runway for them. My first trip on an aircraft was on a Dakota 1962. Remember it well. Up hill to your seat and you virtually ran out of the aircraft when leaving. Called a DakMaster. Early March. The captain came on lot of bangs on top of the aircraft. The thumps on the fuselage, he said, are chunks of ice breaking off the wings. Hells bells first flight. Oh well another sweet from their basket given out to ward off ear ache due to pressure. Still it was better than London City Airport. Manic. Once and no more. Laurie
  9. Not by any means saying you are wrong Gazza but I just cannot remember a Comet in Jersey. I came to live in Jersey in March 1962. Perhaps it was before that date.

  10. Live in Jersey Paul and that is a great look back into the past.. To pick one. The Dart herald. A great aircraft. A lovely looking aircraft with its Daddy long legs Great with those long legs and the wings on top of the fuselage they could land with a higher wind speed that the Viscounts. Laurie PS I think it is a Dart Herald there was also a Dutch Aircraft with the same configuration a Fokker Friendship..
  11. Whoops no I have found that the PW IV were only used on the GR MK 9 Laurie
  12. Thanks for that advice. Seems my Paveways11 will have suddenly become Paveway 1V. Laurie
  13. My is that really you Paul If so I am mightily impressed Yes agree. Laurie
  14. Building the 1/48 Hasegawa and need guidance/confirmation that I am going to get it right. This is after a lot of investigation I think is correct. These are the weapons I have and below is the configuration. THE ORIGINAL NOT CORRECT NOTE original removed as being inaccurate. Thanks to Nick Greenall Leader Harrier Special Interest Group IPMS(UK) for all the information he supplied to enable me to produce the following. http:// Laurie
