  1. Not sure if anyone else has answered, but that is the 14 cylinder engine, 2x banks of 7 cylinders, if it was the 9 cylinder t would have one bank of 9.

    Telford 2018

    Attended on the Sunday, arrived in Telford about 9:30, parked in the shopping centre, £1 all-day parking. Got into the TIC with no problems, 20 mins queuing then about 5 to get into the show when the gates opened, paying on the day. The organisation was excellent, as a former serviceman I found the two-minute silence was impeccable and the playing of both the Last Post and Reveille wonderful and very moving. This was my first show and hopefully I will be back. Thank you to the organisers, volunteers and venue staff.
  3. Had the pleasure of seeing her last Sunday but was a bit overawed by the amount of, and quality of models on display in the whole show and especially the VC recipients on the BC table, I had read this thread before I went and was glad to have seen her in the flesh?. Next time I go to a show I shall have to have a plan instead of walking around aimlessly, drooling, similar to when I visited the Hannant’s shop in Lowestoft. Ian
  4. The interiors of both the flaps an undercarriage bays were indeed white, if my memory serves me right.
  5. Would that be Mum licking a hanky and ... oh, the Lanc! Love what you’ve done so far, Johnny!
  6. Two Ian’s on the front row? Too confusing, I’ll slink over to the bar! Looking forward to another CC build!
  7. Is that Johnny Wilkinson on the left stick? Looking forward to this build, quite partial to Wimpies!
  8. Must remember to not drink and search for tools, spent 2 hours looking for a six inch half cut who’s round.
  9. Just spent half hour catching up after the outage which, for me at least seemed like 3 or 4 days. Now going to spend sometime looking for some dungarees like Annette’s but in a slightly rotund (circus big top) size! Posted the above but forgot the reason I came on, Tony she looks awesome, been watching this build from early days and am gobsmacked at your enhancements (to the Dornier, @CedB) I wish you all good health and happiness for the New Year! Ian
  10. So does the Observer not navigate? Henry the Observer just doesn’t sound right. Can just see the scene, Christopher Columbus, where are we, then, what, oh sorry, I’m just here to observe! . Merry Christmas, Crisp, thank you and all the other BMers for the entertainment this year and look forward to seeing some more outstanding modelling next year!
  11. Mr Airfix must be happy as yet another one with a 111P in the stash. Will take a seat if you don’t mind! Merry Christmas all and health and happiness for next year!
  12. I like your attitude towards stash reduction, my stash reduction measure foundered during the seasonal Aldi Airfix sale when a dozen “paint mules” fell in to the trolley! Fortunately, SWMBO was at work so I was able to get them home and stashed before return of said lovely lady!
  13. During the 80’s, when the Deutschmark was around 2.80 to the £, allegedly, so I was later informed, you could use a shilling (5p) in place of a DM1 coin in both NAAFI vending machines and some off-base call boxes. Of course, I deplore the use of such deception and if it ever occurred then it was a genuine error!
