  1. HMS Belfast

    Great stuff. That is really looking good very nice workmanship. Matter of interest I remember reading about the Belfast and about the deck. Found information which rewards your artistic licence. Lack of camouflage The wooden deck was originally painted with camouflage patterns to prevent it being easily spotted by enemy planes. But the Admiral of the time decided that he hated the look of it so stripped it back to its original teak. Luckily the Belfast did not suffer any aerial attacks due to this purely aesthetic decision. https://londonist.com/2016/09/secrets-of-hms-belfast Laurie

  3. Tut how vulgar. The phallic outline

    Being born was mine. Less popular with some. But 2 sons 2 daughters seem to approve. Laurie PS to be fair I do not think anybody has moaned about the 2 episodes. The Air Authorities in the USA have said it is not within their remit.

    Agree wholeheartedly brightens up our world Mike. This is the problem with the EU. They just do not laugh at our fun and jokes. Must be all this salt air around us. Either that or we grabbed all the happiness and fun genes. Selfish again. I just like laughing. Laurie

    Yes I thought he perhaps our RAF type has a proportional issue. Although personal experience sometimes has a bearing on these issues. Laurie

  7. Tut how vulgar. The phallic outline

    As the English version was larger (well endowed I believe is the scientific description) this gives a real accoladiang first for the RAF. 35 miles long the RAF version not possible to photographic except from on very very high. But fortunatly traceable on radar returns. Loved to have been in front of the screen as monster appeared. Could have been a Mrs. Raf type on duty. Laurie

  9. Remembrance Day

    Yes sky wise a heleo. Whoopee.
  10. Remembrance Day

    The wonder is the children. They become quite unnerved by all of a sudden their parents standing still not saying anything. Their looks their thoughts what are mommy and daddy doing. Not speaking to me. Telling me to shush. Everbody standing around they are thinking this is not normal. Poor parents thinking why are they chatting so much. Laurie
  11. 1/48 Airfix Coyote Afghanistan

    Thanks for that Ian much appreciated. Actually one arrived last week. I am doing a Falklands Conflict diorama next so I will see how the first looks. First look it seems it will make a nice model. Been in touch with Richard HLBSC. Only problem with the Afghanistan one is that Richard said they fitted the bar reinforcement not sure I want to get involved with that. Laurie
  12. HMS Belfast

    Looking very good. a special for me. The Belfast was launched 6 months before I was born Work that out. Belfast is 79 years old. Past her recently on a mini cruise on the Thames. Still a little beauty. Went on her some years ago. Amazing they were using hammocks. Will be looking in Salmo. Laurie
