  1. but on the otherhand
  2. There's a big conference of beer producers. At the end of the day, the presidents of all beer companies decide to have a drink in a bar. The president of 'Budweiser' orders a Bud, the president of 'Miller' orders a Miller Lite, Adolph Coors orders a Coors, and the list goes on. Then the waitress asks Arthur Guinness what he wants to drink, and much to everybody's amazement, Mr. Guinness orders a Coke! "Why don't you order a Guinness?" his colleagues ask. "Naah. If you guys won't drink beer, then neither will I."
  3. Good grief ! I think I first built covered the plastic in Britfix 77 around 1960. That is indeed a trip down memory lane. Lovely work thanks for posting
  4. So that's a couple of years you've been building then Welcome aboard Jindy..hope you have a sense of humour or that's me off to the naughty step!
  5. Hello Ed and welcome
  6. which can be flexible (Too late again !)
  7. My mate got back to me earlier and thanks you for the excuse to look through his 20 odd books and countless magazine articles on the Buccaneer. Unfortunately he can only find references to it being allocated to RAFG units which we already know. He has no record of it being issued for use on Navy Buccaneers. A book written by a test pilot briefly mentions trials of it at West Freugh but there is no photograph. He will continue to look as he assures me that he has got almost everything ever published on the Buccaneer (including some very interesting reports on the S50 but alas no mention of them using it either)
  8. from Blackpool or Edinburgh
  9. A young woman in New York was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. She went down to the docks and was about to leap into the frigid water when a handsome young sailor saw her tottering on the edge of the pier, crying. He took pity on her and said, "Look, you have so much to live for. I'm off to Europe in the morning, and if you like, I can stow you away on my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you food every day." Moving closer, he slipped his arm around her shoulder and added, "I'll keep you happy, and you'll keep me happy."The girl nodded yes. After all, what did she have to lose? Perhaps a fresh start in Europe would give her life new meaning.That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love until dawn. Three weeks later, during a routine inspection, she was discovered by the captain."What are you doing here?" the captain asked."I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she explained. "I get food and a trip to Europe, and he's screwing me.""He certainly is," the captain said. "This is the Staten Island ferry"
  10. Do real people close their eyes and slowly eat chocolate? SWMBO was watching something and as I passed I saw an advert with what looked like a twin engined Herc dropping a parachute. In the interests of science slagging off adverts I will now have to keep an eye out to see what (insert expletive of choice here) that was.
  11. its snazzy boxers and
  12. Lovely model Glynn. Fond memories of them low level up here.
  13. Interesting to see them side by side. There couldn't have been much elbow room in the 'tub'
  14. by stupid adverts during
  15. Depends on how much display space you have. Using the Lancaster as an example, the 1/48 one will look impressive but take up a lot of space. The 1/72 one can be built into an equally impressive model and take up less. Although from the magazine articles it appears that 1/48 is taking over the world, there are still a lot of us working with 1/72. (lets see what that stirs up then)
