  1. Without wanting to add any more spanners to your marvellous work, Sir, but are you going to tackle the badly misshapen tailplanes the kit provides us with? Apparently they're too long and too rounded at the tips.

    Over visiting my sister in upstate New York, she told me of a nice air museum just outside Albany pronounced "Skin neck titty"

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    Everything except the "cats" bit. Comedians under 40... That's reminded me of a major grump I have. Years ago I had the pleasure of visiting a comedy night in Manchester. I laughed only once, and that was more a single "Ha." The reason? I counted only four subjects that were covered that entire evening by the four "comedians". These were:- Genitalia Sex The Royal Family Cursing That was it. I find any routine about the above to be very lazy. If a "comedian" has to resort to any of the above, then they are really struggling. At least the likes of Billy Connolly used real life for example...

    Oh I hear you on this, I was watching the footie a few days ago, one of the internationals, Switzerland vs Belgium I think. Now I know Co-Commentators aren't usually Shakespeares but when you hear him come out with the line "That defending was sloppy as." I cringed. He sounded like a oldish bloke too. Sloppy as. No explanation as to what it was as sloppy as, no, he just left it hanging there, keeping millions of viewers up and down the country on the edge of their seats waiting to find out. We never did. Followed the next day, on the news this time a reporter, talking about the feeling at Number 10 concerning Brexit or something, that "feelings have been pumped up to ten." Sorry, what? Do you mean tensions have risen to a high level? Concerns have been greatly raised? What the actual eff does pumped up to ten mean, and why is a major news network employing these people as reporters?? And breathe.....

    But you've reminded me of a big grump me and Mrs Hovis has... Aldi! There's Aldi in England, Scotland, Wales, and the Republic of Ireland, but not one shop in Northern Ireland!!! What's that all about? No wonder we had the Troubles..!

    There's no such thing as the Coca-Cola truck...
  13. Does this indicate that the 1/24th scale has, and will for the foreseeable future, become the "WWII Fighter only" Scale? (old Harriers aside).

    A very British experiment, Marshall MA4.

    Amazing stuff!
