    Possible Scam

    Several weeks ago I recieved a letter from my GP asking me to book a jab.This I did through the surgery,so a date was confimed.About a 2 weeks later I had a text message,from GPSurgery,asking me to fill in a short questionnaire by following the link provided in the message,or on my computer.Attempted both methods which failed.Rang up my GP,they stated they knew nothing about this,they have had several people concerned about the message,but they have informed people to just ignore it.Over the past 3 weeks there has been 2 more text messages received which I deleted and ignored.Just now I have had another message stating this is my last chance to fill in questionnaire.The link is floreydotaccurzdotcom/vkqgsyztu.Have not put actual link as it appears,subbed . with the word dot.Anyone know anything about this? Dave.
  3. Just found a really interesting YouTube channel called 'PLASMO',a scale modelling channel,there are many interesting builds of various subjects,but he completes a detailed build of a Fujimi 1/700th Yamato,most informative.Sorry,can't do links,technodinosaur. Dave.
  4. Hi Jeff,its got the 2 turrets,so prob the final 'kamikaze' version. Dave,still landlocked in body and soul,but fancied a ship model.
  5. I have the Tamiya 1/700th scale Yamato and have noticed that the gun turrets,eg:parts C12,C14 etc that affix to the main bridge assembly are devoid of any barrels.Are they machine gun turrets and the barrels are too small to mould? TIA.........Landlubber Dave.
  6. Just received this book,very good it is too.Another book you might consider is 'Ship models from kits' by David Griffith from Seaforth Publishing,another fascinating guide into the building of small scale ships.

    Quick question...

    Humbrol 74 Matt Linen was the replacement colour for CDL HB16.You could also try Matt 71 Satin Oak. HTH.......Dave.
  8. There is an interesting article on the ww1aircraftmodels.com web site.In the Aircraft Information/Questions section,under 'WingNutWings FE 2b,another problem',there are some good photos of the control line/cable system used and the pulleys etc. Dave.
  9. Its the same situation around here being close to the midlands motorway network and a very large distribution centre that is growing all the time,and further projects in the pipeline.What gets me is the price of properties and how the hell do people afford these properties.There is an old farm house up for grabs at the moment near where I live, probably about an acre of land as its not been a farmhouse for many years,development building around it.Nice 4 bed house,next to main road with good access to motorways,rail and bus depots within 10 mins walking,close to all amenties.£900,000.!!!10% deposit and nearly £3,500 pm mortgage.Who can afford these places,probably a developer will buy it and build about 20 houses on the plot. Dave.
  10. Aprils issues of SAMI and MA in WHSmiths Hinckley,bought them yesterday. Do you know what happened to the issues that were collected from the printers but not sent out or received by subscribers? Dave.
  11. First aircraft I ever flew in,Brize Norton to Hannover,September 1971. Dave.
  12. In the Harry Woodman book,'Early Aircraft Armament-The Aeroplane and the Gun up to 1918',there is a description and drawings of the mount designed by Eteve.These are on page 81.The images can be viewed on www.worldhistory.biz HTH........Dave.
  13. There's going to be a forthcoming article by Mike Kelsey for next year on the use of a AW FK3 6219 in Cross & Cockade International.This machine was captured from British forces in Macedonia and used by the Bulgarian forces until lost in action.
  14. About 3 years ago,our cat had a very bad case of constipation.Took her to the vets to remedy the issue.A shot of something was squirted directly into her nether region,and the vet said I had probably 20 minutes to get her home and into the garden before the inevitable happened.No worries,only lived a 5 minute drive from the vets.Bundled her into cat basket and placed it on the passenger seat.As soon as I pulled out of the vets car park,there was a low growling coming from the cat basket,and then the most awful pungent smell pervaded the inner car space.Even with the window open the stench was terrible.My wife said I was a lurid green colour by the time I got home.
