  1. Very nice diorama. A lot of work. Pospki would have loved this. Just to be a pedant. Popski's Private Army was a separate organisation completely from the LDRG. The LDRG were more intelligence gathering. Pospski carried out some intelligence work but was mostly disrupting the enemy behind his lines in the desert and in Italy. In the desert he spent much time getting the British pro Arabs on side to rise against the Axis when the time came. Apologies for the history lesson. Laurie
  2. Tornado GR4

    Thanks for your time and info Motley. Very much appreciated. Did not get the picture. Appreciated if you would publish it. Many thanks. Laurie
  3. Tornado GR4

    Hi Julian Thanks for the info and your time. Got all three GR4 walk arounds book marked. Some great photos there. The detail is great. Fine views for the time I get to the effects stage. Thanks again. Laurie
  4. Tornado GR4

    Thanks Muzz. Su8re that is correct. Since receiving Nigel's reply above I have taken a good look at all photos I can find of the Tornado on the ground at Kandahar Airport. The only ones with flaps and slats other than closed were a couple with engineers servicing the aircraft. So thanks Nigel and Muzz for sorting this out. Laurie
  5. Tornado GR4

    Thanks Nigel. Studying photos it appears that a third have different options open. The rest all closed. Must look at the Afghanistan ones closer. Your point on sand is a good one. Thanks again. Laurie
  6. Tornado GR4

    Building a Tornado which will be as if in Afghanistan and on the tarmac without pilots on board. Slats and Flaps. Is there any position up or down, they would not be in on the ground as described above. Is there any combination of slats to flaps which would not occur on the ground. Any help most greatly appreciated. Laurie
  7. More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    What a cheek Beardie. Dereliction of duty, four kids 4 grandsons and I might say a wife. Supporting all in my eighth year. Plus because of that I will have to live until 100 (intend more) until some one clever like me is willing to take my place. Also has to be some one who is not grumpy. Which reminds me my wife is grumpy she is always complaining that I am always complaining. That is real grump. And what is all this about advancing years. and geezer I am none of those. Definition A geezer is a descriptive word in the UK which is used to define a mans characteristics. A geezer will be found usually out side a pub with a pint in his hand on match day. They commonly like football, scrapping, beer, tea, ....., (removed rude) and Barry white. Geezers often acknowledge other geezers by a greeting each other by saying geezer followed by a nod and a thumbs up. I know nuffing about all of that. Thinks I am having my first GRUMP. Wow I like it.

    I just hate gobbledegook. And I have just skimmed through 8 pages of it. Yes 8 pages. Laurie For those who know knot wot gobbledegook is or represents. A pool of scientific descriptions. Gobbledegook is the language used by goblins to talk NOW THAT SEEMS TO SUM UP THESE 8 Pages language that is meaningless or is made unintelligible by excessive use of technical terms. GOT THAT WRONG NO BODY HERE is INTELLIGENT ENOUGH FOR THAT language characterized by circumlocution and jargon, usually hard to understand: SAY NO MORE (FOR A BIT) Gobbledygook, or Gibberish, are synonyms of the word "nonsense". It's likely that wizards started calling the language Gobbledegook, because it sounded unlike any language they knew and seemed just gibberish in their ears. SO VERY TRUE Babbling incoherently, making no sense, Being completely random VERY GOOD DESCRIPTION> Unclear, wordy jargon. or pretentious or unintelligible jargon THIS MEANS RUBBISH language characterized by circumlocution and jargon, usually hard to understand YOU BET I like gobbledegook, I am a chicken chook, or is it a rook, I think I will now retire to my inglenook, before I get hooked on gob-ble-de-gook
  9. HC.4 junglie questions

    Not sure if this will help. Came from my collection when building the HC4 Laurie https://www.google.com/search?q=mk+hc+4+seaking+cockpit+pictures&safe=active&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=3JtX_52I9R_i8M%3A%2Ck9JclLiO-YmPQM%2C_&usg=__pNCIskVH_RZxRFGGEZvWv3KIdjg%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj9q5OYhpXZAhUSDOwKHekaBf0Q9QEIKjAA#imgrc=rRzPnEQ94k7F8M:

    1. LaurieS


      What are you going on about old chap ?  My apologies but I do not have your name.


      The comment I made was for the model maker. No intention of being rude to you or any other person.

      For the life of me I cannot understand how you construed I had been rude to you.

  12. Working Lift Bridge Diorama

    Well I have just happened on this article. All I can say is blimey. Do you sleep at night. Some very neat craftsmanship. In a past life I spent 50 years in the Architectural world. Admire your very crisp drawings. I spend a lot of time gathering information for my projects. You must have spent more than a few hours gathering information and producing the bridge in 2d before taking it on in 3d. Laurie
  13. HC.4 junglie questions

    Built a Seaking last year. Afghanistan type. Just looked at the little picture library I built. All the photos I have of the Seaking in Afghanistan have tinted ceiling windows. I used a back with dark green highly diluted airbrushed at 10PSI. Airbrushed the canopy on the inside face. Laurie

    I have to state that rather selfishly I did not think of submitting. I took a string of photos of a Sea Lynx which I will sort out and publish. Thanks again Julian
