  1. I’m just coming to the end of building it’s stablemate, the A6E. It’s the same kit with different decals (which are really nice) & an additional weapons sprue. It’s gone together really well out of the box & the folding wings are great with minimal filler. Those decals look sharp.
  2. My eldest daughter & her boyfriend have moved to the Cambridge area, both are pretty keen plane spotting types having been ATC cadets and enjoyed that and been lucky enough to go to various airshows and RAF bases with the ATC. The house is about 20 - 30 minutes drive from both Lakenheath and Mildenhall and now that they are settled I was invited down to have a look at the spotting opportunities. We chose Mildenhall and I was a bit late getting there as my 3 hour drive turned into a 4 and a bit hour drive but we found ourselves at the western end of the runway in the Nook campsite as reccomended by various people. It was a cold day, quite overcast and got pretty dark by half past four and apart from two other lads we were the only ones there. For a first visit it was a great success and really enjoyable and we learnt a few things, next time we ae going to try Lakenheath on a Thursday morning and then head over to Mildenhall for the afternoon. Thanks to the Nook campsite for the location and the facilities! A photo or two, some of these were taken at the extreme "long" end of the lens so are a little fuzzy.
