    Possibly a Hampden? Surely you mean certainly! That's almost certainly going to happen as I;'ve just invested in several Special Hobby;/MPM Boston/Havoc's.

    I take it the Old Trout does not go on BM and read your posts?

    Now that is an extraordinarily good idea! I would even consider getting a smartphone to be able to use an app like that! Anyway, the large box did arrive today, but luckily also delivered were two packages for SWMBO, so an ugly incident was averted

    Indeed, we grow older but no wiser. I really should know by now that alcohol and Ebay do not make a good combination.

    Whilst full of euphoria and alcohol after England's victory over Sweden I unwisely went on Ebay and the following morning found I had won a Trumpeter BMPT-2 and a Meng Models T-72B1. Didn't cost ;me a great deal as I had a Paypal balance, but still, it was a lesson to be learned, They are due to arrive tomorrow, so I really need to get SWMBO out of the way, otherwise

    1/35 scale "Holy Grail" of Jeep Collectors

    Great idea and superbly executed!

    Yeah, those cardboard insoles don't really do the job, do they?

    I think I can match that. My daughter recently did the family tree and it appears I am related to Sir John Colborne, who commanded the 52nd Foot in the Peninsular War and at Waterloo. Apparently he is my second cousin, six times removed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Colborne,_1st_Baron_Seaton The family has rather slipped down the social scale since then

    Might be as well keeping that to yourself if you ever find yourself in France, Darby, I don't think the French have ever considered Napoleon as having lost. As Stuart Cloete remarks in his autobiography, the French will never admit to having lost, they have always been betrayed!

    Just received a Meng Models T-10M Heavy Tank from Creative Models' weekly special. I had one before, sold it on and regretted doing so almost immediately! This one's going nowhere!

    Anyone heard of intarsia

    When I saw it I thought it was where Yorkshiremen got piles.

    She's mad!

    Was the pilot charged for leaving the scene of an accident? I'm like DuncanB, I laughed when I really know it wasn't funny.
  13. Thanks Heather, nice to know my memory wasn't deceiving me (for once)!
  14. Do you mean the roughly triangular windows in the rear fuselage? If I remember correctly, these are for the Mk III and I'm sure I saw the appropriate blanking plates in a sprue shot somewhere. Could well mean a Mk III will be along sometime? Looking forward to getting th;is one, hopefully my LMS will get stocks soon!

    Hitch? You're alive, I saw ;you! What a wonderful film! Anyway, just received an Airfix Phantom (my second), to be built with folded wings, Also acquired a Meng Models BMPT slightly started from Ebay. The previous owner made a very good job of the suspension. I wouldn't normally buy a started model, but got this at a very good price
