    You say say it is a hat wearing female, but how do we really know that it is not you assimilating an Earth human for a meal?🍽
  2. I can't believe that no one has mentioned the two highlights of the 70's for teenage boys, Linda Carter as Wonderwoman and Trisha Yates in Grange Hill! Oh, the plasticky stuff looks good as well.
  3. Hi Chris, Are you referring to the reduction gear as the domed bit? Takes the drive from the crankcase and reduces the propeller speed to prevent overspeeding. If you want to see how a radial engine works there is a guy called Ian Jimmerson on YouTube who has made a wooden radial engine to show the basic principles, 'tis a thing of beauty! Cheers, Ian
  4. Front row, living the dream! πŸΏπŸΊπŸ™‚
  5. Looks like they vacuum-packed the propeller! Popcorn 🍿 now available from the foyer! Good luck at the hospital.
  6. Guinness and steak? They' need some proper food like Alt bier, Zigeuner Schnitzel mit Pommes und Mayo!
  7. That remark about the zip-line took me back to the 70's and my Flight Deck game. Land a phantom looky-likey on a bit of plastic! Grinning like an idiot just thinking about it! πŸ˜ƒ
  8. Popcorn 🍿 at the ready! I'm in!
  9. Ladies and gentlemen, Found this wonderful video yesterday and thought some of you may find it of interest. I love the fact that he made a radial engine from wood to demonstrate how it works! (Mind you, he didn't have to fit cooling fins! πŸ˜‰)
  10. Even worse than that, it was Bromochlorodifluoromethane! πŸ™‚ Banned by the Montreal Protocol in the 80's as a CFC, for most items it was replaced by halons but still allowed in aircraft fire bottles.
  11. Used to be blue for dry powder, black for CO2, cream for foam and red for water gas
  12. Thought PX-7 was Vaseline, PX-11 was the green gunge sprayed over gnomes during pres and pack and PX-24 was Wd-40

    Just wha is the plural of a Tardis? Tardiss, Tardi, Tardises? Is there a plural of Time And Relative Dimension In Space? πŸš€ If so, these guys wouldn't be too happy!

    Seventeen and a half short tons of potential in fact! That'd ruin the dinner party!
