    I have just got my sticky mitts on the new ICM He 111 H-20, add a V 1 and that's what I will be building, roll on July 2020.

    EE Lightning F6 - 1/72 Revell

    How many legs did she have to start with? But yes, a lot of NHS staff fit that profile, back to a teapot, short and stout.

    I know what you mean by this, perhaps she should make a case to be back paid her benefits whilst she was out of the country.

    Phantom FG1

    David, the Hypersonic slotted and unslotted tailplanes are really nice and more accurate than the Hasegawa offerings. Bob

    You would need a large orifice for this banned bomb. It's a live 950 Lb thermonuclear weapon prepped for a Tornado aircraft

    EE Lightning F6 - 1/72 Revell

    I remember my doctor saying I needed to lose weight, the look on my face must have said it all, as she then said "we all need to lose some weight". Pot and kettle came to mind. I think he's saying it looks "Ruffff"

    There's a lot of it about, I resemble that remark.

    This is where "we" are not seeing the big picture, all the environmentalists are exempt from producing greenhouse gases by putting a "nuclear power no thanks" or "ban the bomb" sticker on their mode of transport/backpack, no matter what they do it's not them, it's "us".

    Every time some environmental crusader is flying over some ice field in a helicopter, saying how much global warming is melting the ice. I shout "Well that's not helping is it?"

    Phew, I was starting to think it was just me that was arguing back, Sir David and others kept blaming "ME" never once giving me credit for being as environmentally responsible as I can be.

    F6F-3 Hellcat. Eduard 1/48

    That is a coincidence, I was looking on the Eduard site last weekend and I clicked on a bunny club edition of the Hellcat that includes Vraciu's markings, but a reality check made me take it out of the basket as I do have the Eduard and old Otaki kits already in the stash.

    King Tiger - Wheels Camo or Not

    Checked some more books today, on KT's most photos show a pale washed out finish to the wheels, probably mud and dust, whether there is a camouflage finish underneath who knows? A colour photo of a KT captured during the Battle of the Bulge (turret number 332) and taken to the USA, supposedly in original paint finish, it shows the wheels painted in solid olive or rotbraun colours. Another book on the Sturmtiger shows the wheels camouflaged in the same 3 colour camouflage as the rest of the vehicle, unfortunately no unit or location details are included, but it shows its German crew members loading ammo onboard so it is not a preserved machine.
