    Things to do in England when you're Ed[ward]

    When you say trim that a bit, I would think a lot. Each of those could easily take a full day, depending on how deep you want go into the exhibits at museums, or browse shops. Talking of shops, I see Parabellum there; if that's the Birmingham shop, it's only open Thursday Friday and Saturday, 11 am to 1730. I live quite close to it, and have been there! It's packed, but small.

    What music are you playing ? Part IV

    Interesting. On one listen only, I wouldn't say amazing, but certainly interesting. The couple of clips you put up from P205 were quite good, too.

    I only remember it was a viva, not the type.

    What music are you playing ? Part IV

    I know this is beginning to seem like name dropping, but another artiste I saw performig live, this time just after It's a Heartache came out as a single. She was on a double bill at the Old Halesownians Rugby Club summer ball in 1979 or 1980, when she shared the bill with the Steve Gibbons Band. I have to say she surprised a lot of people, putting on a pretty good performance. Oh, happy days!,

    Glad to see it's not just me that stil goes to seee Who's left".Always quality ! Egi Vandor; Good Lord, Another fan! I saw these at University back in the early '70's, an unusual band at the time with a woman playing organ. There were very few women in "rock" at the time, Julie Driscoll - another band seen at University and Sonja Kristina of Curved Air are the only ones I can remember now, so seeing Virginia Scott on stage with Beggar's Opera was a bit of a surprise! I wonder how you came to know about Beggar's Opera?

    Spot of the Day Part 2

    A fw years ago We saw a lurid pink something stretched limo here, used as a wedding car, can't remember now if it was a hummer. But something a little more personal - (I wasn't taken to my wedding in a stretch limo, a yellow 4.2 hard top E type) - I saw a yellow vauxhall viva today between Kidderminster and Stourport. I learnt to drive in a viva - in 1972.

    Thanks for the compliment! I look forward to seeing Austerlitz - and Napoleon.

    You are too modest. Thanks for talking the time to photograph and sort these, they are of some great examples of modelling. I especially liked the desert airfield diorama, someone has put heart and soul into that.

    Sounds like a quick scratch job then if I wanted to!

    FV 432 - Telford Payback

    I've got a couple of these in the stash and I noticed that the box art shows a warning light, a rotating orange light - but it doesn't appear on the sprues as far as I can see. Was this a standard road fitment, and hence an optional scratch buld item?
  13. I must thank you kind sir, but I’m sure that’s a function of the design rather than the maker! I think you’d be delighted by them, as I was.
