  1. Australia's 1929 Federal election sees Labor form a majority government with 46 out of 75 seats. Radical Left elements of the party push for close ties with the Soviet Union. As a result Australia ends up licence building Polikarpov I-15 & I-16 fighters for the newly renamed Australian People's Air Force. If that counts I'm in! DennisTheBear
  2. I seem to remember that the toilet (no Elsan in this British aeronautical marvel) was finished in tasteful fashion but can't rember if it was lime green grushed velvet or a delicate pink died shag pile. DennisTheBear
  3. A sad state of affsirs for historical modellers that is. DennisTheBear
  4. In the hope of having an exiting scratchbuild if I have to be in lockdown again I went searching the pages of BM for the discussion on the (perhaps fortunately) umatched Farely Fruitbat. To my dismay it appears that that riveting discussion across many pages full of facinating and fulsom information has been consigned to the theatre of memory. I stand bereft. Sigh! DennisTheBear
  5. Welcome to BM from Brisbane (that would be way, way, waaaayyyy to your southwest). You'll find that everyone on here is supportive and helpful and will willingly offer you ideas on how to spend even more money on our wonderful hobby. DennisTheBear
  6. 2 x Heller 1/72 Douglas DC-6B. More for my growing 1/72 civvie stash. DennisTheBear
  7. It was the Esci kit iirc. Looking forward to this as I have 5 Daks in the stash. Will it be the military version or will you whack on some airline decals? DennisTheBear
  8. Beautiful work there @Einar! Wonder if anyone makes a kit of this in 1/72? DennisTheBear
  9. "Small Wars, Far Away Places" by Michael Burleigh. DennisTheBear
  10. reservations at Mann's Chinese DennisTheBear
  11. Nice! Obviously that place has seen better days. DennisTheBear
