  1. Does this help any? https://imgur.com/DLyZMYC https://imgur.com/a/YZB3f2r Bah! How do you insert images directly? Pic should give dimensions to the winch in Defiants etc. Sorry
  2. I was in Mansfield on Thursday (30th Aug) when I heard jet noise. As you sometimes get in streets, the noise seem to come from different directions all at once. I did the usual rubber necking and think I saw a glimpse of Hunter receding into the distance . Did I see right? I haven't seen one airborne since the Shoreham display. Hawk maybe?
  3. A discount for ex-service? I didn't know that! Where does it say? Not that it matters much, I'm already a member.
  4. I suppose with eight more in the same colour, we'd have the "Red Barrows" Someone on the Daily Fail likened the overall red to a dildo. Now, I wonder what shade? BS? RAL? Fed. Stan.?
  5. This is the report from TNA, AIR27/1672/34, Record of service. Spot the wrong registration! https://imgur.com/CawhH5j
  6. Ah Ha! N1480 is not listed in my book. Duly amended. TY
  7. Hunter WT680 is an F.1, so a little conversion work might be necessary. Small bore exhaust and no dogteeth on the wing leading edges will be needed for a true replica.
  8. Glad to see some of it still about. It was reported in "Lincolnshire at War" the 1970's book. The authorities had it blown up then as "a danger to shipping" apparently. I get the feeling that it's quite a way out, and it's not an area to go wandering about if the tide turns.
  9. I've just had a quick shufti in Billl Chorley's "Bomber Command Losses" both the Squadron one for 1942 and the OTU book, but have nothing that matches up. Do you have more details regarding the date/location please? It is definitely Polish though! The exploits of 13 Sqn Blenheims for Aug 42 are recorded at TNA in AIR27/181/23 (summary) and AIR27/181/23 (record) it has listed the following Blenheim IV's: Z6089 Z581? V5380 Z5882 Z6??? N3545 Z63?? Z5882 N3612 Numbers are incomplete as I did not download the pages, just viewed the degraded image. (It's FREE while Covid lasts!) V5380 was lost with P/O Woodland & crew. Alas, none of the codes were recorded.

  11. Now, I never actually stole any, but I always thought it was a product that could come in handy one day. I made a mental note to put a roll aside JIC, along with a can of MEK to glue it down with. I did come across a can before demob and I still have it though the contents have long since evaporated away. Stupendous plastic cement while it lasted!
  12. I thought it was some kind of rubbery rain erosion proof coating- like blade tape on Wessexs. But then again, something similar wasn't used on Phantoms.

    I used to be able to, then lost my mojo somehow. I fail completely on some other forums.
