  1. 1/18 Spitfire Mk. XIVe - Race #80

    I feel extremely privalidged to have watched this build bit by bit. To think it is awarded the best model in the world (for that is what it is, really) should have been no surprise, but, it is truly wonderful to see a britmodeller wip receive the ultimate accolade.
  2. That nose looks quite odd the 1st RAF photo
  3. Strange helicopter over Bruges today

    Cheers. I will feed that back
  4. Hello all A friend is currently in Bruges. when at about 4pm UK time today she spotted a chopper with a large underslung load consisting of a large hexagonal frame, about twice as big as the aircraft. She did send a photo but it is of such poor quality it is not with posting. Nothing was showing on flightradar24 at the time. any ideas?
  5. Tiger Moth to Fox Moth

    Hello John Hope you are well. Yeap, I am still around and following this. Cheers Andy
  6. Aerodrome alumnae...?

    I used to be on Aerodrome as well, but I think every modeller who was on there have migrated to using the forum on WW1aircraftmodels.com
  7. RAF Fairford to become operational once more!

    my mistake for mentioning the runway length and for things to go off topic. But only by a tinsey winsey bit mind
  8. RAF Fairford to become operational once more!

    Is that Lechlade per chance?
  9. Large scale Jaguar (car), due in June.

    ooohh you got me! Thought you were talking about the jet!
  10. RAF Fairford to become operational once more!

    Hands up who thought the runway, being the longest in Western Europe, would be deemed too short for RC135 operations? Reading the document in full it would appear the overruns are going to have to be upgraded to be included in the available take off distance of 27/09.This would confirm the concerns re RC135s operating from Waddington. I dont think the basing of RC135s will affect RIAT. It didn't affect Mildenhall Air Fete, and RIAT (or IAT as was) continued when 11SG with the KC135s were there. I was on that unit at the time and we just sent the tankers to Lajes AB and other locations, but kept some for the static. Anyhow building work starts next March
  11. RAF Fairford to become operational once more!

    All the married quarters are currently occupied by RAF families so they should be ok. The gym has recently been overhauled l ( I did hear it had nearly a million dollars spent on it). The bank, BX and shops will need to be rebuilt as they were torn down some years ago.
  12. It has just been announced in the US FY18 defence budget that the Mildenhall RC135s are to be based at Fairford. The base will have $45 million spent on the infrastructure to bring it up to speed. As someone who lives a few miles down the road I am one happy chappy
  13. Fokker D.VII (Early) - 1:32 Wingnut Wings

    Fantastic review. And in case you didnt know, Wingnut Wings now have Sprue I of every one of their Fokker DVII kits for sale as an accessory. So now you can built ANY variation (bar the Austrian built ones) of this aircraft using this kit as a basis
  14. Tanmodel announce a 1/48th Buccaneer.

    Splayed leg guards. Well done Tanmodels. I think the blast shield needs adjustment. As it is at present there is not enough room for the navigator to squeeze into as he enters his office. I think the problem is that the screen is a little bit too big. Easily fixed
  15. Tanmodel announce a 1/48th Buccaneer.

    Tanmodels really are listening to us. Tanmodels, if you are reading this, don't forget the leg guards on the rear seat were splayed open when the Martel TV unit was fitted to just between the navigators' legs
