  1. Put a face to your name...

    Hi Guys, I don't think I want to be a member, my beautiful Husband was, my Derek Burton, for many years. It gives me a kind of closure talking to you guys though, although I haven't got a clue what you are talking about. I remember the good old days, Dek trying to teach me about planes, me, sitting there, nodding, then asking him if he would like me to show him how to knit. We went to Silverstone on a couple of occasions, until it became way too expensive, I remember, the first time we went, man, was it raining, or what, but this Hurricane plane sort off went over us. I can not explain the emotion I felt, it was very powerful. I do like planes, but really haven't got the patience to build one. Quite apart from anything else, I have no idea how to put a photo on! For all the people who knew my Dek, please don't forget him. Greetings from his crazy wife, never a widow. Angie xx
  2. Buy & Sell Areas

    Hi Guys. It has taken a long time, and a lot of courage, to find this site and post this. I don't know how many of you knew my beautiful Husband, Derek Burton, he had a massive cardiac arrest on 15th December 2014, he, eventually, died on 24th December, he was braindead. My Boy was only 54, and it has been a hard journey, we were together for nearly thirty years. I have given stuff to charity, but in respect of his magazines, books and models, I hesitate, because I would like them to go to people who share his hobby. I will prepare a list of some of my Dek's stuff over the coming week. I will sell at a reasonable price, but all purchases must be picked up in person, cash in hand, I need to see that people care about his stuff. If nobody is interested, that's fine, I will keep everything, but I would like to think that some of his things would make somebody happy. I have got magazines from the 70's, etc, as I said, I will send a list. Whoever remembers him, please don't forget my Dek. Thank you. Angie, Dek's Wife, never a Widow x

  4. Airfix Blenheim Assembly

    So are we saying follow the instructions ? Dek.
  5. Red leading edge gun tube patches

    I agree with Simon in post #5, there are really good quality photos of Spitfires that to me show areas around the gun ports to be perfectly square with a perfect circle in the middle no evidence of a ridge on the edge of the red portion and no sign of a fired through patch. There is good photo of this in Sarkar Battle of Britain the photographic kaleidoscope on page 109. Dek.
