  1. Fantastic builds , particularly love the Royal Navy Tiger Moth.
  2. I have just comeback from Cyprus. On entry have to have a Covid flight pass as proof of double vaccination otherwise 300Euro fine. You have to wear a mask at all times on public transport,quite strict on this. Most shop's and restaurants require proof of double vaccination before entry allowed. Easy to download the double vaccination certificate to your mobile as wallpaper. Don't have to wear a mask outside but if large gathering's present I wear mine as added protection. Apologies Scimitar F1.
  3. The nickname for the green flying suit's "Grow bag's" because of the front zip and sweaty smell.
  4. Jim, very interesting observation. I have gone through all my 8 Group pictures of Mosquito B.XVI's and there seem's to be no logical variation in the inlet size to various production serial's. The deeper inlet would have allowed better cooling so maybe it was a modification added towards the later part of the war ?
  5. Aldersieg. Have you tried the Newark Air Museum ? they found the remains of a Westland Wallace K6035 on RAF Cranwell North airfield in 1961 and it was restored for Hendon RAF Museum. Both Newark and Hendon Museum's and Skysport Engineeering archive's may be able to help.
  6. I stopped subscribing to FSM about 2 years ago. The subject's did not interest me far too many jets and FW190/Me109 builds. In the past had some good article's like converting a 1/72 GMC truck 6x6 into a bomb loader ,sadly now few and far between. Aeroplane Monthly is excellent although Flypast should be renamed Spitfire International ! but i suppose Spitfire's sell, but there are other aircraft . Airfix World i subscribe too well balanced subjects something for everybody. I was an avid SAMI fan but not in recent years, MAM was great in its early day's. I have all the early SAM's great articles's Wish Neil Robinson and Ernie Lee would re-incarnate PAM Plastic Aircraft Modeller.
  7. Superb, thank you for posting.
  8. Somewhere I have a Alan Hall Halton conversion in an Airfix magazine from the 60's. Will try to find for you. my apologies its to convert the Airfix Halifax B.3 to an earlier Mk.2 variant Airfix Mag Dec 1967.
  9. Has anybody a good photograph of the rear glider towing hook please ? When attaching the aero-tow rope from the rear we lifted the elevators to signal to the pilot to open the release to attach the rope then gently lower the elevators after the rope was attached. Due to prop wash and engine noise it was the only way apart from using a handheld radio.
  10. Thanks to all the team for organising the show,very enjoyable and nice to chat after a long Covid lockdown.
  11. Special Hobby 1/72 Gloster Meteor NF.14. I measured the fuselage length and it is correct 49 ft 11inches in 1/72 scale.
  12. The Bomb bay is for a TT.35 if Airfix had done their homework right this kit could have been exceptional.
  13. I have had both jabs and have a card recording this, I may need to get a seperate Covid passport , how do you obtain one ? All very confusing, but pleased Telford is on. PS. Thanks for the replies just read the IPMS Info sheet and it's on there. Why oh why didn't the NHS encrypt the little vaccination card they give you ? this would have prevented fraud and honest people having to get a seperate Covid passport.
  14. From what little record's, I can ascertain that only a couple of 692 Squadron Mosquito aircraft had four bladed propellor's.
