    Covid Jab

    Thats how the PCR antigen tests work, looking for fragments of virus DNA. The thing I was talking about was an antibody blood test, which looks for antibodies produced in response to coronavirus. Thought the point of the vaccinations was to train the immune system into producing antibodies, but then I'm no medic.

    oh, I dont know about mediocre, the missus's 1.8 was nippy enough 20 years ago

    No, these are the ones where you stab your finger and drop blood on a plastic testing kit (not Airfix ! )

    Covid Jab

    Well here's an interesting one... just did one of those REACT2 covid antibody blood tests , would have thought that after 2 jabs it would have shown something, but nada...... edit : apparently the antibodies being looked for are different from the ones generated in response to vaccination. So no conclusions to be drawn yet.

    Covid Jab

    got my 2nd jab earlier this week, some 3 weeks earlier than I was expecting. No different to first time round - sore arm for 48 hrs then back to normal .Or so the 5G broadcast in my arm tells me
  6. Toadily understand......

    Covid Jab

    Meanwhile my 40-something sister in the Highlands cant even get a first jab. GPs saying theres no stock and no idea when more available, or if it will be hospital doing it. But heard from someone working in NHS Scotland whats actually going on is the GP practices are squabbling with each other over who does the work and who gets paid for it....
  8. Thanks, it was a refreshing change to have something turn out like its picture on the box !

    Never used Ebay, probably never will. Buying outlets now down to the letters A & H, after a certain secondhand kit seller shot itself in the foot with an inadvertant 100% profit margin disclosure. And shows, if they come back - but I suspect they'll be rather sparse affairs compared to days of old.

    Mel Bromley RIP

    Very sad to hear of his passing. He always had interesting kits on sale at the shows.
  11. .... but would you really WANT them to ?
  12. an extra shelf of (future) doom ....
  13. Todays mild regret is that we in England dont get to sample the latest in Scottish cuisine..... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-56955873

  15. I also wondered about radio aerial masts, but likewise havent happened across any pictures showing such a thing. edit : and then 10 minutes later found this : https://images.app.goo.gl/M4Go6idtpVrxzFGKA So they did exist on some airframes.
  16. Now its coming together, the deficiencies in the instructions are becoming apparent : 1) at no point does it tell you there is a machinegun to mount in the rear transparency 2) no markings on transparency for rear diagonal struts But here's what it looks like. No, I've no idea what the horns sticking out of the upper wings are supposed to be, but they're too carefully moulded to be ejector pin marks..
  17. ^^ This ^^ Saying the magic word "GDPR" gets IT departments falling over in a mad scramble to sort it out as there are serious consequences. I'd also give YOUR company's CFO both barrels for trying to save a quick buck by outsourcing to the lowest bidder... you just dont get the same level of service. End of.
  18. What have they done now - minimum 20 char passwords ?
  19. Drove to the out of town retail park, took one look at the thronging undistanced hordes and drove straight back home without stopping....
  20. Some decals from Hannants. But just before I could get to the checkout an Anigrand F-108 jumped in the basket....
  21. F-108 Rapier. Been hankering after that one for a while, and had a gift voucher that needed to be used. If only I'd given in to the urge 3 years ago I could have saved £10 !
  22. ok, one trip to Hannants website later and there are some extra decals on the way. Somehow an Anigrand resin kit jumped in the basket just as I reached the checkout....
  23. I just KNEW there was a good reason I avoided WW2 subjects as a general rule.... started putting the decals on and THERE'S NO TAIL DECAL. Because its a *€*/%#$@ European boxing with no swastikas allowed !!!
  24. Apparently today is the first International Gerry Anderson Day. Now to find somewhere to watch Thunderbirds/Stringray/Captain Scarlett with no strings attached....
