  1. I remember some of he aircraft used in the film were at Sywell.
  2. I get a sort of muffled 'ding' - which is not unpleasant. For what its worth - I converted to a Mac just over a year ago after messing about with pc's for years. It's not perfect, they are expensive and it did take some time to get my head around it, but I don't think that I would ever go back.
  3. got it now! - but it sounds harmless . No idea how to describe it tho'...
  4. What notification sound is causing the issue? Mine seems fine...
  5. Just realised I have enough 'Flying hours' for the Phantom and the Sea Fury. Woohoo
  6. Had binders for Airfix Model World brought for me as a Christmas pressie - Does anyone know if there is a complete set of indexes/indices for the mags to date?? - have found one set online but it only goes up to about issue 50..
  7. How cool is that!
  8. Special Hobby 1/32 Tempest, purchased by me. Taken away, wrapped and put under the Christmas tree by my wife!!.....
  9. The bottom ones I believe are the Airfix 1/32 British infantry support group
  10. I keep a few in cupboards and on shelves but as I lose interest in completed models pretty much as soon as they are built, I have sold a few through Ebay but also have given a load away to teacher friends who distribute them around the children in their schools - the kids love 'em...
  11. http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/defence/naval-pride-for-lusty-as-she-leaves-portsmouth-1-7715809
  12. Popped in literally for ten minutes - reason for the short stay was there's too much to do on Saturdays this close to Christmas... (apparently!) Didn't want to miss it tho' as had been to all the other Hamex shows. Still managed to pick up a 'want' for the stash..
  13. ..and what time is it due to finish?? - I can't get there til after lunchtimeish..
  14. Bit of a bargain picked off Gumtree today all at £6.00 each...... Airfix 1/48 Lightning F1 Lightning F2A TSR2 Jaguar GR3 HS Buccaneer S2B Grumman Prowler Canberra B2 Canberra B1 Eduard 1/48 Spitfire F Mk22/24 Airfix 1/72 Vulcan DH Beaver Revell 1/72 Shackleton (old Frog Moulds)
  15. Flying hours were made for this.......
  16. about time....:)
  17. A few snaps from the Valiant Air Command Museum and Florida Air Museum. http://s1209.photobucket.com/user/spfparker/slideshow/Florida%20aircraft%20museums
  18. That museum was on limited opening times whilst we were there so didn't get a chance to go and have a visit.. Think it is planning on opening up again for longer hours in the future..
  19. Halfords clear lacquer...?
  20. I attended a very interesting talk by Simon Owen - Airfix's Chief researcher - on the B-17 and Lancaster today. Sprues (or most of them) were there from the new B-17 and they looked very nice. Thoroughly recommend that anyone goes to future talks that are held if they get a chance. No 'scoops' but it was mentioned that the Wellington is ripe for a new kit....
  21. Airfix 1/24 Harrier £3 at a car boot and a Tamiya dambuster Lancaster for a fiver - also at a car boot.
  22. I can't see the free content on mymaths - it looks all subscription to me. Have I missed it?
  23. 5 Gazelles? and a Puma - sw over Northampton.
  24. B1 westwards over Northampton....
  25. There's been a few WW1 trench vignettes and dioramas featuring Masterbox figures so I thought I'd might as well add mine.. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc397/spfparker/DSC_1962_zpsdb5phvou.jpg
