  1. As I was always taught, leave to brew, then add the milk. Never, never add the milk first, especially when at my grandparents house... That was a hanging offence (and just for the first offence as well) Taught me well did my old Grandma. But then again, can't stand the stuff. Coffee all the way for me (decaff only though - I have an intolerance to caffeine!)
  2. Another report was the fact that the MV-22 was a lot heavier than conventional helicopters and could sink into the lawn of the Whitehouse.... Which would not be a good look in front of the worlds press!
  3. @WarthogMKL What's happening in regards to the Jan & Feb issues that were due to be sent out this week?
  4. Or use One Drive that come with Windows 10 (if using that). That can also be used as a hosting service - All the pictures I've posted recently are using MS One Drive. (I believe that there are instructions in the link explaining how to use one drive as a hosting service)
  5. Just got one of these - easy to put together, and looks like it will be one of those tools that will be invaluable... Just in time for the latest build Airfix FR14 Civilian Racers!
  6. Email has now arrived from the courier to advise that they have the parcel from Hornby and delivery is due tomorrow, 10/02/2021. Sadly due to the time that it arrived, I am unable now to ring and give any special instructions, which is what I was told to do by Hornby... Sorry but this is what you are supposed to do BEFORE it gets to the delivery company, this needs to be added to the address label generated by the company that packs the goods, and generates the delivery label, not the courier company! As you can surmise I am not very impressed with Hornby Customer Services with this at all.
  7. Instead of being posted first class - they now go second class? Or instead of using an external company to do the posting for them, they now do it in house? (wife works for a charity and they use mailing companies for all their appeals - all designed in house, but printed and sent out from an external company) I subscribe to Airfix Magazine and there was nothing in that this month about any changes to the subscription service, and that's published by Key Publishing as well, so don't know if it is just limited to Flypast or not.
  8. Just been on the website - looked at the workbench blogs and the one for the Canadair Sabre is still not showing the pictures in the blog! Still only getting place holder notes for the pictures that should be there...
  9. The New Airfix website and ordering process is my grump (also posted in the Airfix Website thread) Don't try ordering if you need to have any specific delivery instructions! They have removed the text box from the order screen that allowed you to enter any delivery instructions on the order screen. I have some quite specific instructions, and due to this tried emailing to follow up an order. Received an automated reply advising that there is a 7 working day delay to responding to all emails! Orders are processed in 5 working days. So I thought I'd ring them to sort it o
  10. Don't try ordering if you need to have any specific delivery instructions!

Orders are processed in 5 working days. So I thought I'd ring them to sort it out! Well that was about as useful as chocolate fireguard! Hornby Hobbies cannot add any delivery in
  11. Have you considered that it was an autocorrect error or accidental spelling and not an intentional error regarding the implementation of the post Brexit rules. These things do happen, even to companies such as Hannants. Not the sort of thing that would be picked in in a spell check or grammar check before being posted. In addition, whilst they may be existing rules, most British companies have never used these rules as prior to 01/01/2021 they would have used the same rules as the rest of the EU, as you well know. It will take time to get used to the new paperwork requirements. Wh
  12. @Bullbasket That is certainly an image to get me laughing! Spag Bol is definitely not the easiest of meals to eat - If I do have it, which is not very often anymore due to an intolerance of anything from the Allium family of plants . I tend to have plain pasta - Penne, Fusilli, Farfalle - or what I can get that is available as Gluten Free.
  13. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-55881753 BBC reporting that sadly Captain Sir Tom Moore has sadly passed away due to complications arising as a result of him contracting coronovirus!
  14. I've just downloaded the programme from BBC Iplayer. As it's from BBC Alba, it's in Gallic (with English subtitles!)
