    Modern RAF Roundel colours

    Your very welcome. As to looking too closely, make sure I've not got me windows on, can't see much close up without them, I'll wax lyrical! Paul

Nice to see the Ninja training paying off.........you taking lessons off @samuraiwarrior ????

    Modern RAF Roundel colours

    Hi Anil, if the tin of xtracolour is marked as 110 = BS381 110, that's the current colour for Roundel Blue. Wartime colours were darker. May be an idea to cut away the blue sections and mask the white and use X30.

    Agree with @azureglo , Anil, was it you I saw drift past the North Riding tables about 12:10 on Saturday? or were you just playing at ??!!!! We had a little get together at 12:00 on Saturday, met @Gorby, @Head in the clouds., @3DStewart, @tank152 @Mr.T and a few others, plus met @bentwaters81tfw and @Julien also the Guys from Cross and Cockade on Saturday night at the pub! Great meeting you all, nice to put faces to the names, Tim, your Sea Fury and the Fw. 190 are great, many thanks for the loan, Frank, the same applies to your AVRO 707, though I got kidnapped on Sunday to go have a look see! As for the 'queue' on Saturday morning, unless your going to 'camp out' Friday night (NOT advisable!), there will ALWAYS be a queue. The member's queue was moving through very quickly, and was a trickle by 9:20, the people paying for entry, the bulk of that queue was sorted by 10:30, hats off to the Guy's from IPMS Farnborough, ALL of you did a great job. I appreciate that you can "Please all of the people, some of the time, Some of the people, all of the time but NEVER all of the people all of the time." Moans aside, I hope everyone had a great show, and increased their respective amount's of loft insulation?!!! Sad to see @Albacore posting about someone with sticky fingers. I trust that @Albacore coverered the cost of the tables AND the cost of the lost kits. Worth reminding everyone, a 'small' trader is just that, they may even have a 'day job' to pay the bills, 'cos selling at shows ain't making anybody a millionaire..... If you get a discount accept with good grace AND say thank you, it's NOT an excuse to go into barter mode because that money comes out of the traders bottom line, a loss the size and amount of @Albacore could be the difference between the trader continuing OR, possibly, calling it a day, worth thinking about.........

  8. I'll bet Airfix would have preferred to have had the kit there with the traders too. Sadly, once loaded and at sea it's in the lap of the Gods. Similar to the TSR2 initial release, at least this one will be available for Christmas.

    You are forgiven my Son. Your penance* is:- Three hail Airfix and a down with Corgi.... *intended in levity

    @Scimitar refuse to sign until you've checked the item. Used to be they couldn't leave without one, don't know if that still applies?

    @fatfingers worry ye not! C Class Mercs aren't fitted with a normal handbrake. To keep the centre area clear you get a forth pedal close to the transmission tunnel. Depress, brake on, to take the brake off you get a little pull handle, bottom right on the dash. Been driving it for three years and still not used to it!
