  1. Depends on how you define "classic" insurance companies have their own ideas for sure and I've been on the receiving end of their "decisions" In any case I define mine as "modern" classics, 1990 Daihatsu Charade GTti which I'm working on at the moment, an exhaust valve disintegrated and have decided to go over the whole car rather than just fixing the fault, next a 1992 Saab 900 T16s, still going but leaks everything except brake fluid and needs a mid life update due when the Charade is done and finally a 1998 Mazda 323f V6, beautiful engine from a manufacturer that doesn't believe in rust proofing from the factory lol.. I'll go for another when funds allow but do I go older? Don't know, there's so many amazing Japanese stuff from the 80's/early 90's

  3. I would assume that it won't get as far as Revell as it could be seen modelling is a more "grown up" pastime for want of a better word and efforts of the Peace Society would fall on deaf ears Bell isn't an exclusively military manufacturer either,
  4. Made this too when young, Matchbox at it's best, not to mention it's great box art, not only have you done it well you took me back many years when young and care free when the only problems I had was when and how I'd get my next Matchbox from the local papershop so thanks Steve
  5. Well best of luck with it, would be interesting if you log your journey with plenty of pics
  6. For the time being Hannants is closed to the public, hopefully be different when you make your Trek Being up there it'd be rude not to have a visit to Flixton near Bungay/Beccles, not an airfield but a good afternoons browsing https://www.aviationmuseum.net/

    RIP Florian Schneider.

    My first album I bought was Kraftwerk, 2nd hand mind, but still the 1st...... Makes you think that others are getting older too, Jean Michel Jarre is 71, even Mike Oldfield is 66, they were all so young when I 1st got into them, but then, so was I

    Lock Down.

    It is good, probably helped by much less traffic, I'd bike to work much more than I usually do but the reason I don't is due to the poor driving by many many people and when I do it's when I start at 4am and on the way home I purposely choose the longer quieter route... I have this sad feeling that once it all blows over then cycling will still be as dangerous

    Regarding the people who either don't care or think it won't happen to them, maybe in time (short as possible!!) they'll become social outcasts in the same vein of drink-drivers many years ago, this would make the police's task in this matter so much easier

    Lock Down.

    I'm not absolving the supermarkets at all, I was purely stating the fact they don't have the capacity to keep that level of sales up and keep the shelves stocked, you're the one who said supermarkets "simply not stepping up" and this is how I interpreted it, I only work for them not make decisions so there's no reason to reply to my comment in this manner

    There was no way any supermarket could cope with the demand a couple of weeks ago, way more busy than any Christmas which is difficult enough with many months of planning for labour, warehouse space, transport and stock, but with like even a months notice, no chance, all they could do was send out what they have and increase orders, get agencies/owner operators and hope to get the overtime in Now it's all calmed down, other way in fact, too much on some things, we've now got 100's of toilet rolls lol

    Oh and forgot to mention with being urged to use contactless from 1st of April the limit is going from £30 to £45 Also had a big delivery of toilet rolls today, didn't last that long mind but the biggest amount in over 2 weeks, things are in hand pasta wise so hopefully the tide has turned stock wise, no doubt the low customer numbers has given the supermarkets a breather

    Really quietened down at the supermarket I'm at now, went round at 4.30 and counted 10 customers, though it was bedlam when opening so be aware, the next step is as said similar to 1 out, 1 in and will be reminded on the way in to keep apart from each other and from staff... Perspex panels will be put up in same vein as bank screens around manned checkouts and people are being urged to use contactless and if you do use cash go through self scan, checkouts including self scan will be one working one not to create space and if there's queues it's too bad, it's about safety not speed now. I'll admit it, I'm frightened of what some of the public are like, been in this business 32 years and have seen how animal like some are, seeing more reports of spitting or making out they've contracted the virus not to mention the idiots who have either got symptoms or even have the virus and still go out

    There's the practicality side to it, unfortunately it'd be very hard to close the shop for the NHS (or anyone else) and then re-open again for the public, from being there in person from the grief we've already had from the public it'd be almost a riot situation...though in my shop it's from 7.30am. Having said that we are in a position to help out when we know who the person is in the same way with vulnerable people, we use our discretion and judgement over this....
