    Zero Wheel Well colour?

    Have to second @Toryu's recommendation; I just got this recently. Just dipping into it reveals a wealth of information about this iconic aircraft.
  2. It has been a great and magical ride. Thanks! Joe

    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    @MrT,I can't disagree about the ants; the first time my stepdaughter watched the movie with me; she burst out in laughter when the ants appeared. I just grinned. But, considering that special effects still had to be physical/real; it was a good effort. You are correct about how they still build up the story. Did you notice that the scientist and his daughter arrive in New Mexico in a B-25?

    When the Wehrmacht and US Army Fought the SS

    Both JohnT and upnorth are correct about the film having been made; I remember going to see went it was released back in 1963! It was also shown on television here in the USA a couple of times; but, I haven't seen it in several decades. upnorth's remarks about the film could be correct. I had heard of the incident that prompted this thread; but, no real details. I agree that a film about this battle is overdue; and a remake of the the rescue of the Lippizzaner horses. Incidentally, there is a farm within 10-15 miles of me where they are raised, trained, and shown. It's located in Lake County, Illinois. Joe

    Blenheim IV's glas"chin" turett

    @dogsbody, Chris, I just read your post, and checked my kit; they are there. I believe that part D7 is the "base" for the single gun fairing. Joe

    On CD: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" the expanded version(yeah, I'm a sucker for this sort of thing) On Blu-ray: "M-Is 1-4", and two classics: "Forbidden Planet" and "Them!" At the market: for the benefit of @Darby, bread, as some do demand details, sliced whole wheat, for the making of sandwiches. Also bought some sliced roast beef to put on the aforementioned bread. I plan to also combine them with a slice of extra sharp cheddar cheese and, wait for it, a condiment as well. Catsup or mustard for those interested. Also, a bag of onion bagels, for breakfast, a small frozen pizza, a bag of packaged salad, some small bags of salted peanuts(for snacking), a bag of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese, a bag of "baby' carrots, to have with the salad, a bottle of calcium supplement(I have had both arms broken in falls in the last decade; I figured that was nature's way of telling me I needed more calcium in my diet.), and a bag of croutons(cheese and garlic) to top my salads.

    "A Christmas Carol(Alastair Sim version)" "McQ" Both on Blu-ray, I have never seen Mr. Sim's version; my understanding is that it is considered to be the best adaptation of Mr. Dickens' classic book. I have the George C. Scott-David Warner version of the mid-80s; it is quite close to the book as well. I look forward to seeing how they fare against and with each other.
