  1. My first album came first, I was getting a record player for Christmas, so mum took me into a music shop to choose a record to play on it. I didn't have a great knowledge of music at the time so I went with something I had heard a couple of songs on, Shakin' Stevens Greatest Hits... My first single was a bit of a plan B for me. Me and my mate had gone down town to Woolies to buy the Northern Ireland 1986 World Cup song, but they had sold out! I thought I'd rather buy something else rather than return home empty handed, I chose Madonna's Who's That Girl. I don't know why, I wasn't even a big fan of Madonna!

  3. Is there not a time limit on what can be termed as "retro"? The 747 in Landor is beautiful, but seriously, Landor "retro"? Is last season's football shirt retro?

    737 Max

    It's the replacement for Nimrod the RAF are getting.

    This won't have any bearing on the Poseidon will it?
  6. 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.

    Boxers? I thought you'd wear an underkilt or something....
  8. Does this indicate that the 1/24th scale has, and will for the foreseeable future, become the "WWII Fighter only" Scale? (old Harriers aside).
  9. Can you imagine the size of the interior photo-etch for the TARDIS?
  10. They've done the Harrier GR1 & 3, as well as the FRS1 Sea Harrier in 1/24, so why not one of the plastic wing versions? OR Why not bring out a helicopter in 1/24? I'm thinking a nice Scout or Wasp... OR 1/48 F-35B Lightning?? Eh? Eh? OR The Puma has been crying out to be released in 1/48. They've done most of the rest, well, Merlin and Lynx anyway.... In fact, they haven't done most of the rest... We'll end up with a Spitfire, wait and see.
  11. True. Although I'd have played it safe for the first go and given it all the run up she needed, but then, I'm just the careful sort
  12. Did anyone notice when it was landing that it seemed to have the weapons door open? Could it be for airflow purposes when in the hover, or just showing off her bays? Also, on take off, why not have a longer run up? The roll seems very short, and the whole deck was available....
  13. I'm in. Concerning AlleyCat, experience shows that you have to be patient, but the wait is worth it.
  14. Definitely not 1935, for two reasons I can see. Firstly you can clearly see on a couple of occasions the waste land on High Street from the Blitz. Also, around 2:40 you can clearly see Stirling bombers parked around Shorts. Could be from different films, but a lot of it I'd say is during the latter stages of the war, or just after.
  15. Very flippin' little even though it's the airshow today!!!! Deep breaths......

    AV-8B to GR. 5?

    AV-8B to GR. 5?

    If memory serves me right, Heritage Aviation did two different conversions for the Monogram AV-8B, one for a GR5 and another for one of the two-seat trainers. I don't know how easy they'll be to find today though. I myself have a Monogram AV-8B that I wanted to turn into a GR9. Luckily for me some kind soul on here cast me some resin duplicates of the bit's I need. Worth asking. Hope you find what you need.
  18. I love the way you rest your cutting board on a bed of pasta. I must try that....
