    Modelling? I guess I'm a bit interested in that...

  1. Here's a good site referring to the Austrian Airlines fleet of A321s https://airlinesfleet.com/austrian-airlines-fleet-airbus-a321-details-and-pictures/
  2. I'm wondering when Mike is going to change the name of the site?! A truly international bunch of modellers now, so from me and good to read about your interests! A 1/72 C-5, AN124, AN225 and a B747??? Where do you keep them?
  3. Ciao Beppe! I often visit Sicily as I work for easyJet, but I don't normally stay longer than 35 minutes! You'll love it here, some great modellers and a real 'family' feel minus the arguments.
  4. Welcome Paul! Is Sheffield not in Scotland then? Having been bought up in Kent, I thought everywhere north of Luton was Scotland... Anyway, my daughter is at Glasgow Uni, so I count myself as kind of Scottish!
  5. Salut Xav et bienvenue! I've been living in France since 2012 and I'm over in 38
  6. Hello and welcome from me too! Yeah, right! I used to say that too, but secretly just kept modelling as it was 'uncool' and turned the ladies away. I now admit to modelling in an open and honest manner and use my natural wit and charm to deter females. Seems to be working so far! Led Zep fan by any chance?
  7. Brilliant! Cheers Rob. I’ll search through the stash tomorrow for something suitable from Her Majesty’s Royal Navy.
  8. HI @rob85 I thought that I had said I’m in, can’t remember, but I appear to have lots of time on my hands now so as all days are blurring into one and weekends and weekdays are all the same... So, is it too late to join the party? If I hadn’t said I would be here already?

    At last!! This is what I foresaw when stashing all those WnW kits!! on a more serious note, schools in France are closing, I’m going to have to stay home to look after my son. What a fantastic opportunity to have some creative time together!!
  10. Hi Pete, I’ve just caught up with this thread again and was so shocked to read that you’ve been under fire yourself. Wishing you a very rapid recovery and look forward to seeing more of your H.M.S. Hood soon.
  11. I think I've found what I'll do for this GB. Special Hobby's 1/32 Morane Saulnier Type N 'RFC Service' From Wikipedia: The Morane-Saulnier N, also known as the Morane-Saulnier Type N, was a French monoplane fighter aircraft of the First World War. Designed and manufactured by Morane-Saulnier, the Type N entered service in April 1915 with the Aéronautique Militaire designated as the MoS-5 C1. It also equipped four squadrons of the Royal Flying Corps, in which it was nicknamed the Bullet, and was operated in limited numbers by the 19th Squadron of the Imperial Russian Air Force. I've always liked the look of this little monoplane and so this one will definitely be on the bench! I'm thinking of doing a Tamiya 1/20 Ligier JS.11 as well...
  12. Just caught up with this one. Absolutely beautiful model of a beautiful aircraft!
  13. @Wez I'm in! Subject to be chosen, but I'm sure there's something French in the stash! I'll be back soon with more details, but thanks for the invite!
  14. Current airline pilot here.... but not a current modeller! Many reasons for the sudden turns after take-off. The standard departure? Traffic? Weather? Vectors? So many variables in the lateral as well as in the vertical dimensions. What caught my eye was the 'circling' at 5000ft for five minutes. How did you you know the aircraft's altitude and how did you know there was was very little traffic around?
