  1. More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    I'm so embarrassed , I assumed that you were from the Nuneaton local to Coventry, I wasn't aware that there is a posh one somewhere. I've just done a fruitless search to locate the Shangri-La of which you speak and it must be just too exclusive to appear on common or garden maps. Now that I know that you aren't from the thousand yard stare capital of England (voted 'Britain in Gloom' winner, five years running) I feel I need to apologise. Excuse me, I need to update something:

    You'd be dead meat in that little namby-pamby thing. It would need to be something like this if you are to stand any chance: I believe it's a Volvo.

    What the hell is that? I tried googling it and it gave me: I think I'd rather be seen in a Skoda.

    I haven't got a problem with Foleshill Road, it's the delightfully named 'Wood End' and 'Bell Green' I avoid. 'Valley Road' and 'Deedmore Road' are places you only visit if you are tired of life. I think there are signs saying 'Don't feed the locals'.

    People who think that because I live 20 miles away, that I have a Brummie accent. That's fighting talk that is!
  6. Simply stunning! The first photos could easily pass for the real deal.
  7. What music are you playing ? Part IV

    Now that downloading digital music is the new way, being one step behind everyone else, I'm gradually replacing my LP's with CD's. That's why I'm playing them to decide which to get and the ones that I'm not that fussed with. Last nights conclusion was 'Yes' to all except 'Force Majeure'. Currently listening to 'Rubycon'. Lined up for later: Stratosfear Phaedra Encore
  8. How about a "What makes you happy" thread?

    Thanks for that Beardie, just had a look at the coming weather. I hope you don't loose any sleep over ruthlessly trampling on my dreams. (not really, I like it cold and bright, it's the dismal rainy days that get me down).
  9. Help with Whitley model please.

    It could possibly be this one: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/162781-korpak-010-whitley Which is from a Frog boxing. The only Frog instruction sheet I can find doesn't have the info you need, but it does confirm the versions that @johnd mentioned: https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/7/4/8/157748-51-instructions.pdf I can only suggest doing a Google image search for either the Marks mentioned or for 'Korpak Whitley'. Hope this helps.
  10. The Happy Birthday thread

    Happy birthday Rob. Are you doing anything special with your day off, or are you getting started on the new stash?
  11. 1/48 Yakovlev Yak-28P

    That looks fantastic. Want one!
  12. IAR 80

    The cockpit looks exceptionally good.
  13. How about a "What makes you happy" thread?

    Just had to Google that. Not to worry, it's not my job to weed the local park. (I just clear the bloody rubbish)
  14. How about a "What makes you happy" thread?

    The first Daffodils of the year. Spring has nearly sprung!
  15. Donations

    Brain came home today and so I was able to donate quite easily. When I tried the new donate button it gave me a new message: So I just used the old button. I think @Mattlow is correct, the way you have to enter the amount is counter intuitive in my opinion. Yesterday I tried to delete the '£0.00' and as my brain wasn't much of a help, I didn't just try to type my donation amount. The trouble is that virtually everyone else uses a blank box, so using something different is (again, in my opinion) likely to cause confusion. As my Paypal email is different to the email you have on file for me, I'll send you a PM.
