  1. Judging by the complaints from contributors, it was not by choice, I'm sure.......
  2. Welcome Dominic. As John alludes to, your father was a much loved man in the business and my sincere condolences to you and your family.
  3. 2/3rds of the way through Taranto, the latest by David Hobbs. Not just about that raid, this is a comprehensive look at the FAA's war in the Med from 1940 to 1944. I do like Hobbs; he's always been very readable without getting florid or dramatic.
  4. Welcome, Garry, from a fellow ex-Farehamite!
  5. And if anyone had listened, you might have an answer by now.....
  6. Cheers, Chris! Yes, most Classic Airframes are underrated - they are often very good builds given some care and attention.
  7. That turned out very nicely, Ralph!
  8. Wow, a terrific set of builds, Alan! Though where do you have the space to display them all?!
  9. Thanks, Ray! It's hard for me to pick a favourite - how do you choose the best child? - but I'm partial to the little Cushman.
  10. Hanriot H.28: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanriot_HD.14#/media/File:Hanriot_H.28.jpg
  11. It's Polish - SP was the inter-war codes for Poland from 1929.
  12. A couple from me. First, the new Airfix kit as G-AMSV, Air Atlantique, 85: ...and the Italeri kit as a Swissair machine, circa 1947: The pair together:
  13. It was indeed 1985. Here's a shot of her at HMS Daedalus that year. I took my brother on his very first aeroplane flight, for his birthday. And I finally built a model of her in 2019 using the TwoSix Decals but using the new Airfix kit:
  14. Cheer, Julian! I've added mine, should anyone care to stop by for quick look and some eggnog.
  15. OK, I'll go first then.... 11 completions this year, about average fro me. I'll run them in chronological order. Fuel tanker and Cushman trike from the Airfix 1/72 USAAF Bomber Support Set, done as post-war civvie vehicles: Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8: Classic Airframes 1/48 Grumman Widgeon: Airfix 1/48 Spitfire XVIII (converted from the XIV kit): Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Vb: Airfix 1/72 MBB Bo105: Airfix 1/72 Lynx HAS.2: Airfix 1/72 Lynx AH.1: Revell 1/72 F-4EJ, the very basic 1965 kit! SBS Resin 1/72 Farman F.190: Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito NF.XIX, converted from the NF.XIII kit: A pleasing year, I was pretty happy with most of these completions. We'll see what 2022 brings, but I have a number of interesting builds planned. Let's see what transpires!
  16. All it means is that the type in question had less than 192 units built before June 1940 - it could also mean that a total of 5 were built by January 1920... As we've learned from their last game, be careful about being too literal!
  17. By not letting the cars between Max and Carlos unlap, Masi cost the chance for Carlos to try to pass Max and Lewis. Not likely, but we'll never know now.
  18. What would Charlie Whiting have done? I can't help thinking it would never had come to this. Masi is not up to the job, to my mind. Poor Charlie - all his legacy gone in a season.
  19. Airliner Modellers: "Airliners are NEVER dirty" Air France: "Hold my vin:"
