    Diesel cars

    An aside question regarding speedometers. In my Tiguan I have an electronic dash ..speedo and rev-counter are all part of a "tv screen". in front of the steering wheel. Is the speed read out more accurate than the "normal" dial types found in most vehicles? Cheers Dick

    Diesel cars

    Please don't forget the EGR valve …… cost me over £700 when it went loopy on my 2 litre diesel Golf plus ; at around the 60,000 mile mark. Ouch !! Then told by my garage to use Shell "V-power" that put the running costs into orbit. On the 2 litre petrol (4WD) Tiguan I'm getting 30-40 to the gallon, still works out cheaper. Dick

    Diesel cars

    Went from a Golf plus, 2 litre diesel to a 2 litre Tiguan mk. 2 petrol. Best move I have ever made. Learnt the hard way with the diesel. Did not like short runs at all. The Tiguan ……… 4 months after purchase there is still a big, big grin on my face every time I get in it. Dick
  7. Skeeter and Sycamore helicopters flying south by the white cliffs of Dover at about 1.30 pm. Also the 2 seat Spitfire from Biggin Hill just before this. A very rewarding walk from Langdon cliffs to the South Foreland light house. Dick
  8. Would it be possible with the correct canopy going into new boxes to indicate on the box that the contents have been corrected / modified so that the purchaser will know which boxing he/she is purchasing. Thanks Dick

    I will seek and find you. I shall take you to bed, and have my way with you. I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan. I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop. I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you. And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days. All my love, The Flu P.S. Now, stop thinking about sex, all you senior citizens, and go get your flu shot!

    How I Nearly Became A Doctor ........................ When I was young I decided I wanted to be a doctor, so I took the entrance exam to go to Medical School . One of the questions asked was to rearrange the letters “PNEIS" into the name of an important human body part which is most useful when erect. Those who answered "spine" are doctors today. The rest of us are sending jokes on Britmodeller.

    Spitfire Mk.24 cockpit colours

    And to put another spanner in the works.......................... Modellers data file no. 5. Griffon powered Spitfire/seafire. Page 103 & 104 shows a mk 19 with black cockpit. Me thinks it was repainted later in it's life. Any way back to the can of worms..... Dick

    Short Jokes II The Sequel

    A Australian Army N.C.O. was about to start the morning briefing to all of his staff. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the N.C.O. decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before, and therefore he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question; "How much of the act of sex is "work," and how much is "pure pleasure"? A Captain chimed in with a 75-25% in favour of 'work'. A Lieutenant said it was probably about 50-50%. A Warrant-Officer responded with a 25-75% in favour of 'pleasure', depending upon his state of inebriation at the time. There being no consensus, the N.C.O. turned to the Newfie Private who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion? Without any hesitation, the young Newfie responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure, Sir." The N.C.O.. a little surprised and as you might guess, said "And why is that soldier" ? "Well, Sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them, Sir". The room fell silent. God Bless the Newfie.
