    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
  3. 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.
  4. This might help, it is a mesh cover
  5. 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.
  6. IPMS Farnborough will be attending, we're really looking forward to it.
  7. Very nice Eric look forward to seeing it down the club and on tour
  8. Good luck with the build, look forward to seeing it completed as all your Thunderbird builds are a delight to see and truly awesome. You set the benchmark that we all aspire to.

    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
  11. http://www.airhistory.org.uk/dh/_DH98 prodn list.txt Shows that it was attached/ part of 68 SQN MM679 NFXIX 68 Missing on anti-flying bomb patrol 25.7.44 . This is about the crash https://blitzwalkers.blogspot.com/2017/01/ http://aircrewremembered.com/kemp-frederick-john.html
  12. This link might help https://fcafa.com/2013/03/28/mosquitos/ Squadron Codes are WM History of MM679 https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=15814
  13. The information I have dug out is that F-101A-5-MC Voodoo/53-2428 was converted to JF-101A. originally based at Special Weapons Center, at Kirtland AFB, NM. 2/15/1963: Struck off charge at Edwards AFB, CA.
