    Back from our cruise round the Caribbean.

    If you can take the floatplane trip in Ketchican it is fantastic. Don't buy it on the ship it will cost you twice as much as on the dockside. When we went I wa s about to book it when my wife saw a driver getting a bit irate, apparently his booking was late and the Beaver was leaving. Cost me$100 dollars{the previous booking had paid for their flight] only problem was he was dropping some fishermen 30 minutes up country did we mind the extra journey? Not at all said I,well you woundn't like to upset the locals would you?
  2. Hi Folks This had lurked on the shelf of doom for a while,I had to wait a long time for the replacement canopy to arrive. Nice kit to build ,no problems were encountered. Model finished using one of the kit options,no FTS number given on them so I'm in the dark as far as the unit is concerned. Painted with Xtracolor HSS. Cheers Ian

  4. This aircraft was in the dump at Jeddah old International Airport in the early 80s along with another half a dozen Sabres The dump also had Vampires,Harvards,DC3s,DC4s,B26s and a Short Sealand plus a few other aircraft. Nicely built and finished model,the paint by then was bleached almost white which threw me a bit when walking around them. Most of the photo's of this dump were taken during the Gulf War,to have a camera. when working on the airfield would have earned a few days in the local nick.

    What ever happened to decent sound recordings on films and TV?it's all mumble, mumble,mumble these days accompanied by music which is overpowering. I always knew that celebrities? couldn't speak without a script, now it seems they can't speak at all.

    You forgot Tunnocks caramel logs Marty. Our local Bargain Madness sells them so I don't need to buy a dozen packets on my visits over the wall

    The Google message did not apply to you, it referred to the one above your statement where PhoenixII said ' to our cousins in the US etc Google is not your friend'. Obviously your post and mine were sent at the same time. Your level of sarcasm would maybe get you a warning if you were not a moderator and I take exception to it. I agree with the rules and would echo bentwaters statement that I did not set out to cause any trouble but to merely have a bit of fun with likeminded people. I totally accept the rules that are applied and the work involved in moderating the site but to apply your sarcasm is out of order. In short check your facts by PM before making statements

    I agree totally with the above comments,noticeable on one of GregBs comments further back the word quote 'arris'could this not be construed as a swear word
  12. you mean the wet, dank side don't you. By the way you're barred from Halifax.
  13. High Folks The fourth of my bargain Spitfires. This time finished as an aircraft of 613[City of Manchester]Sqdn. As usual finished with Compucolour and Xtracolor pants and decals by Xtradecal. Cheers Ian
