    Canberra TT18 question

    The interiors of both the flaps an undercarriage bays were indeed white, if my memory serves me right.
  2. Would that be Mum licking a hanky and ... oh, the Lanc! Love what you’ve done so far, Johnny!
  3. Two Ian’s on the front row? Too confusing, I’ll slink over to the bar! Looking forward to another CC build!
  4. Is that Johnny Wilkinson on the left stick? Looking forward to this build, quite partial to Wimpies!
  5. Must remember to not drink and search for tools, spent 2 hours looking for a six inch half cut who’s round.
  6. I’m in, looking forward to this!

    Dornier Do 18-D *Finished*

    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
  8. 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!
  9. 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!

    The Gentlemanly Pursuit

    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!

    Dornier Do 18-D *Finished*

    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!

    Sven Hassel, that brings back some memories!

    Airfix Canberra B(I).6

    Yep, she certainly could sit on her “haunches” if 3 or 5 tank was filled before 1 and 2!
  14. Top picture, outboard and inboard pylons only used on GR Tornado, 3rd pic, again GR only, refuelling probe, stowed and deployed versions and finally pic 4 shoulder and centreline pylons, GR specific again. The fuel tank looks like a 1500L but is the other a buddy buddy refuelling pod. Looks like you will have a lot of spares for your next Tornado build, Nikkita!
