    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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Wonder how much it would fetch if the packet was unopened with contents?
  12. The weathering and dirt effects on the tracks are truly magnificent. This is going to be one heck of a gorgeous model when finished. you've got just over 3 weeks if it's to be ready for Cosford model show.
  13. I have a spare set of the clear parts from the Trumpeter Wyvern S4 that you could have, just send me a pm with your name and address and I'll will get them in the post to you over the weekend.
  14. Gimme shelter , you are truly a lover of models or a model lover you decide.
