  1. 10 years as a Britmodeller member today :yahoo:. My performance is surprisingly low, though, less than 1,5 posts a day :giggle:. Thank you all for great companionship! Regards, V-P

  2. My heart is still with the brave Ukrainians, but I wanted to restore my old profile pic!

  3. Oh dear, I just counted I have 4 proposals in the GB Bunfight and 5 more in the GB Chat... When will I learn to :shutup:? Silly me :headbang: 

  4. A very happy Independence day to you, my beloved ūüíĖ¬†Finland ūüáęūüáģ.¬†103 years in your clock now, still you never looked and felt better than today. ūü•≥

      Congratulations V-P, I'm sure you will be raising a glass or 2 to celebrate.  :cheers:

      Cheers Pat

      Thanks Pat, I think I'll now raise the third on behalf of You :thumbsup:

  5. Happy Birthday my dear Finland @ 102 years today :yahoo:

      Congratulations you look much younger ūüėČ

  6. A postal¬†workers strike, most likely lasting at least two weeks, began today and truly messes things up for Finnish modellers. I have a lot of stuff on its way but don¬īt know when I¬īll get in this case...¬†

      Hi V-P

      Sorry to hear that, however it might be an opportunity to do some finishing in the KUTA GB.

      Cheers Pat

      Haha, thanks Pat, there¬īs also a trio of Kittyhawks and a Camaro to be finished during the next two weeks, first, to prevent them becoming KUTA subjects¬†:rofl:¬†.

  7. Air Show weekend! Do :bounce: I :bounce: need :bounce:to :bounce: say :bounce: more :bounce: about :bounce: how :bounce: I :bounce: feel :bounce: ? 

  8. Coming to London on a four day trip including Hammers vs. Spurs on saturday, Hendon and Hannants on sunday :yahoo:. V-P

  9. Welcome 2018! The first thing to do this new year will be to restore my status as a plastic modeller vs. a model railroader, which took the better part of me and my spare time in the latter half of 2017. How to do that? I think tackling a pair of Bf 109:s in some GB:s will take care of it :thumbsup:

    Happy New Year everyone!

      Happy New Year VP! We're still more than two hours away from 2018 here in Portugal.

      Actually... We're still 5 minutes short of midnight in Finland too, I just wrote my resolution a bit early!

  10. Happy 99th Independence Day, Finland! Let's celebrate!

      Happy Independence Day! :yahoo:

  11. What a month! Our daughter moved out (read: me fixing the new apartment prior to, then making The Move, fixing a lot of things¬†after the move, then at home moving her younger¬†brother to the vacated room, fixing the room vacated by him TO BE MY HOBBYROOM :D¬†(and a guestroom too, but a hobbyroom is a hobbyroom). Not¬†to mention¬† the hassle caused by the car accident,¬†with fortunately¬†only¬†material damage, that forced me to seek and buy a replacement car for my wife (not her fault, btw).¬†Add several day-long work trips and you get quite a busy schedule. So finally last night I found an hour to advance my vic of Mediterranean Spitfires - Life¬īs Good again B)¬†V-P




  12. Why are we reading announcements of new MiG and Su kits almost every day - and even Klimov- engined Kittyhawk trainer conversions- but no Yak-9:s? Is the industry blind, stupid or both?

      I absolutely agree (especially in 1/72), and I've been annoying people here and elsewhere for years, decades even, by saying exactly the same thing!

    2. Darby


      It's usually yet another Spit, 109, P51 etc

      So strange. In the R/C world there are a number of kits and plans for the 9 yet in plastic land it is an almost glaring omission. I wonder why ?

  13. It¬īs -20 degrees centigrade. If it gets any colder I¬īll have to start using long underpants...

    1. Brad


      That's cold enough to freeze your balls off your billiards table!

      One of my co-workers came to work in a T-shirt last monday, just back from -18 Slovakia. Keep warm.
