    The Prime Minister will be making his speech tomorrow Sunday 09/05/2020 laying out a plan of getting back to some sort of normality. Rumours say if there is no second outbreak then all the rules will be relaxed by October. Bearing in mind a lot of our fellow modellers are in the "at risk " category it maybe a case of you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. So Telford may go ahead but will people go ? It maybe prudent to cancel this year because they might not have the numbers to make it viable, Roll on 2021
  2. If you wanted to mount a winch, it is the same one that is fitted to a Sea King, also they are standard fit on a 7 Squadron Chinook.
  3. This might help, it is a mesh cover
  4. Truly magnificent diorama, beautiful weathering on the aircraft, superb scratch building on the runway lights, once again you take Civil Aircraft modelling to a whole new level. A possible Telford winner.
  5. Definitely on at the usual venue Kings International College Watchetts Drive Camberley Surrey GU15 2PQ The club members will be busy Friday evening setting up for the following day.

    Farnborough Air Show

    Get Hampshire reported "Declining popularity, attendances and a move to place a "renewed focus on engaging young people" have been cited as the reasons behind a move to end the biennial event.The airshow had to respond to heavy criticism last year as its Facebook page was bombarded with negative comments. Visitors were unimpressed with the cost of the tickets, food and drink, as well as the flying display and organisation of the event." Having attended last year it was pretty poor and quoting 5 hours of flying which was the same aircraft flying three times in the 5 hours was pretty poor. I thought the writing was on the wall an unfortunately have been proved right.

    VC10 XX914 Help

    Thanks Dave, I had a feeling that it was a case of using the Airfix Kit for the correct length or multiple cuts on the Roden kit. .

    VC10 XX914 Help

    HI all VC 10 experts I want to build the Royal Aircraft Establishment RAE Vickers VC10 1101 XX914 in 1/144th scale but I am unsure which model kit to base it on . I know it was originally G-ATDJ and in April 1973 G-ATDJ was ferried to Filton where it was repainted in the RAE colours. The question is does anyone know if the model to use with the 26 Decals is old Airfix VC 10 or can a Roden one be used and if so which one and does it need to be shortened ? Appreciate any advice
