    Hi H Yes Kinetic. Will be part of a large diorama with all the British equipment used both in the in the air & on the ground in the Falklands. Plus Argentinian aircraft used. Finished late last year a similar one with all the aircraft & vehicles used in Afghanistan. 15 all British pieces plus an Afghan house. Laurie

    Hi Richard indebted for your information. The aircraft will be part of a diorama for both British & Argentinian during the conflict. Do you know if the Etendard colours were changed form the French to Argentinian during the conflict ? Again many thanks for your info. Laurie
  9. Building the SUE. Some info required. Obviously carried the Exocet just one . ? Port or starboard & which pylon ? Presumably carried fuel pods both sides ?? Did it carry any other weapons or aids ? Advice mostly keenly accepted with thanks. Plus any other info on this aircraft used in the Falklands conflict (war). Laurie
  10. Dedication to duty Tom. Darned fine effort on those roundels. Always a great satisfaction with DIY. Plus I see you got it,satisfaction, hey "Premier Cru". Laurie
  11. No not I either. His book Enemy Coastline Ahead mentions in his introductory passages Monkstone Beach Tenby Wales. I did believe he lived there as it was a strange place to be if he lived in London. Laurie
  12. Very nice Tom. Good progress when you get to this point. Except I find it nerve racking when you get so far down the line. Please do not let things go wrong. Apologies tom my pessimism. If I may say so a very unusual tail Tom for a Lancaster. Not seen one like that before. Is this an unknown MK. Laurie

    How about a "What makes you happy" thread?

    Ha ha. Decided to renovate bathroom. Going well in fact happy. Sunday about 6:00pm tired. Thought just cut this floor board out to get cracking Monday on the plumbing. Jig saw out. Strange why is the blade going a blackish colour. Yells from the ground floor hot water is pouring through the ceiling. Ruined varnished table ceiling tiles came down & carpet ruined. I had cut straight through the heating pipe. Panic running about with pails & towels. A lot of shouting. More panic until i found how to switch off the heating water top up. Good man Happy. Got table renovated, ceiling tiles replaced & new carpet better than the old one under the insurance could not believe it. So eventually happy
  14. Some do both Ced. For me I like to have full control over effects to produce them myself. Pre sahding I would not have that freedom. Also gives me the ability to experiment. Not a criticism of any method just putting matters from my point of view. Every man (& women) to their own. Laurie Nice progress on the Lancaster.
