  1. So that's 14 days until the Tree has to go up and 17 days until it can come down!
  2. I've used the Aires Cockpit set on six different models and had no issues with fit, can't say anything about accurancy though, certainly with my modelling anyway. Sure. they're not drop in replacements and I've used them on both the Airfix Spitfire 22/24 & Seafire 46/47 and quite incorrectly, on the Airfix Spitfire PR19, Aeroclubs' Spitfire 18 & 21, whilst I'm currently building the Airfix 22 & 24 and have used the Aires set on both, the only real issue I've had, is the fitting of the instrument panel. I will also admit that I don't use all the resin supplied modifing to suit! I've also used the Engine set on 3 and that has on occasion been awkward but again probably down to my hamfistedness. I also would avoid the cowling top, on at least one build, it was too small and I had to narrow the front fuselage, so that the the two met but strangely, the propeller fitted OK! I've used the Quickboost Exhausts but have also used the kits own exhausts with just as much success so only buy if you suffer from 'Must Have Everything' syndrome!, whilst the Barracudacast bits are simply to be recommended! I've read that many people dislike Aires sets but can honestly say that those I have used, haven't presented any major issues, though I haven't used the Aires Phantom or Tornado exhausts yet
  3. Yes, getting my emails is not a problem as they can be picked up via my iPhone and Mac but it's just that Outlook is my preferred email platform! Still not working, guess I'll try Virgin direct and see if they have any answers!
  4. Thanks Steve, I'll give it a ago and see what happens
  5. For some reason, my W.10 PC has decided that it doesn't wish to Send/Receive emails and has decided to do this without any imput from its owner (me). I'm using Office 365 and my email address (lanc dot supplies at virginmedia dot com), which I've being doing on this computer since I purchased it a year ago but I've been unable to Send/Receive any message since 28/11/19. When using the Send/Receive button, the system goes through it process the gives a report which says Task 'lancdotsuppliesatvirginmediadotcom - Sending' reported error (0x8004010F) : The operations failed. An object cannot be found.' Task 'Synchronizing subscribed folders for lancdotsuppliesatvirginmediadotcom.' reported error 0x800CCC0E) ; 'Outlook cannot synchronise subscribed folders for ancdotsuppliesatvirginmediadotcom. Error cannot connect to the server. I've tried to using Quick Repair and the Online Repair without any luck, as far as I can tell, the software is all up to date and have no issue with the Word and Excel programmes within office. Further and confusingly, I can use the Mail facilty on my iPhone and Mac, using the same address, without any problems! Being a total numbity, can anyone offer any advise on how to solve the problem and may even accept using a sledgehammer as advise Thanks, Confused, baffled and No Hair Left of Irthlingborough
  6. Another UK Law - No person shall, in the course of a business, import into England, potatoes which he knows, or has reasonable cause to suspect, are from Poland.
  7. In London, under section 54 of the Metropolitan Police Act 1839, it is a crime to walk home from B&Q, if you’ve just bought a ladder or a plank of wood but it’s OK to carry your shopping along the pavement – as long as you’re heading towards your car. Maximum fine? £500
  8. I've got a Hercules in the stash ready to convert into a C.4 with extended fuselage, using the Wingman conversion set, so I'm going to be watching with interest Great history as well plus some interesting pictures for reference
  9. Lets get politcal then, the Palace of Westminster is built on the site of William the Conqueror's first palace.
  10. Same here, I have every issue from the start 'til the current day, with the exception of the Jay Laverty years! My pet hate, especially when the accompanying text points out some minute detail which is all but invisible or has even missing due to having been cropped out in the image editting process, really, really, REALLY grates! Plus, why do we need a clean paint brush pretending to paint or an airbrush hoovering above the model, in the pictures? I'm sure most of us, by now, know what a paint brush or airbrush look like!
  11. I'd love to listen but unfortunately it means listening to Jeremy Vine himself! Not to be recommended at anytime...
  12. I have a few crowns and half crowns but aren't that rare and also have some George III pennies but most are extremely worn. I'll have to dig them out and take some photos!
  13. The more I see of these Dragon Apollo builds, the more I want to have ago myself. If only I didn't already have nearly 500 other kits in the stash...
  14. Born in 1960 and during the late Sixties/early Seventies, I lived in Cippenham near Slough and a friend and I would regularly cycle across country to Windsor and it become our playground and can remember swimming in the Thames as well, without any issues! On top of this, my sister being 7 years older than me, left home in 1972 to become a nurse in London and having moved from Cippenham to Aylesbury by this time, I would regularly take a train from Aylesbury to Marylebone, drop down to Baker Street round to Manor House and then take a bus to Stamford Hill to spend the weekend with her. The only time I was accompanied was if I was given a lift back to Manor House or my parents visited for Sunday lunch and I went home with them! These days, my daughter won't let her eldest son catch a bus or cycle 7 miles, which can be achieved without using main roads, to school
