  1. MASERATI 250F Scratch Build

    Great stuff as usual Frank. That last shot certainly looks like a 250F.

    Whats pink and wrinkly and hangs out your undies. Your Granny.
  3. That is really nice! Always had a soft spot for the Viscount, spannered on the 800's that NZNAC had, and its the only aircraft type that I actually enjoyed being a passenger in! When I see a model of that standard it reminds me why I build big ugly armoured vehicles where the mistakes can be passed off as weathering or wear and tear.

    Looking good. Like your supply of raw materials., - I am not the only one with a pile of old bits of metal and electronic components that might come in handy one day! Admire your patience. That spring shackle would have kept you quiet for a bit.....and you have to do it all over. Keep the updates coming. Regards Dave

    Jokes about white sugar are rare. But jokes about brown sugar, demerara.

    I was all alone, lying in the bath. Imagine my surprise when I felt a tap on my shoulder.
  7. MASERATI 250F Scratch Build

    Nice work. Will be following this, the 250F is my favourite Formula 1 car. Might be teaching granny to suck eggs here but the Lancia is shorter because it was built to have a low polar moment, that is all the mass was within the wheelbase, whereas the 250F is of the more 'traditional' high polar moment with the mass distributed along the entire length of the car and overhanging the axles. The D50 proved very tricky for the drivers of the time to cope with as the low polar moment made the handling very twitchy. When Ferrari took over the Lancia race team he 'evolved' the D50 by moving the fuel load to aft of the axle, making it the same as its contemporaries, and easier to drive.
  8. Postimg all ok again (also introducing ‘premium’ service).

    I have used Imgur for years - in fact ever since Photobucket did their big 'improvement' about six or seven years ago. So far it is free, offers more bandwidth than PB and is easy to use. Of course they could start charging at any time, but so could any provider.

    Don't know if this is a wind up but I just received a text saying I'd won £250 cash or two tickets to an Elvis tribute night. It tells me to press 1 for the money or 2 for the show.
  11. Monarch ceases trading

    My memory is not what it was but back in my Autair/Courtline days I worked next door to Monarch. At that time they seemed the poor relations, Court and Britannia had modern fleets while Monarch soldiered on with 'purchased at scrap value' Brittanias. Seem to recall they had risen out of the ashes of Eagle. I may have it wrong but they structured the business as two entities, Monarch Airlines and Airline Engineering with each entity being the creditor of the other in the case of trouble. Seemed a good idea given the dodgy nature of package tour operations at that time - the most 'modern' company - Courtline - folded first !

    Apparently there are some vegans who consider butchers shops to be gross. I think fruit and vege shops are grocer.

    My wife is furious. Someone stole a pair of her knickers off the clothesline. She's not too bothered about the knickers, but she would like the 12 clothes pegs back.
