  1. Very nice Martin! I still got my second one to build and can’t decide whether to do XR679 in camouflage or grey. Decisions, decisions! Cheers Richard

    SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    I joined the queue at 10.15 and finally got in to the hall at 11.20. Queued all the way from the top car park to find only three tables selling tickets, each manned by two people who didn’t seem to have any sense of urgency. There was room for at least two more tables, why there weren’t only IPMS (UK) know Having finally got in, I thought the show was great, definitely better than last year, the only disappointment was the lack of a new model announcement from Airfix. However, it was great to see completed examples of the F-4K and the Mitchell and the first sprues for the Wellington - all three are definitely on my Christmas/New Year list. Richard
  6. I stand corrected! It was a very long time ago I heard/read it. Richard

    Gloster Meteor F Mk.3 - EE235 - 616th Sqn - 1945

    Very nice indeed! Richard
  8. If I remember correctly, the Britannia cockpit windows didn’t meet FAA requirements. As Canadair were hoping to sell CL-44s to US carriers, they did a deal with Convair and bought the design of the CV880/990 cockpit windows. Richard

    Airfix 2018

    The Red Baron definitely flew the Dr.1, but I’m pretty sure Snoopy (aka The World War 1 Flying Ace) ‘flew’ a Sopwith Camel. Richard

    A First from Me (I know, late to the party, as ever)

    Very smart. I hope when mine (eventually) comes out of the box I can get it looking as good as that. Richard

    Feeling the Water

    I would love to see a new build 206. As I already have a "Regal Beagle" and a "Kitstarter" from Airfix waiting patiently in the stash for me, that's 1/72 covered. However a new one in 1/48 - count me in! But I agree with Wallyinoz, the 206S2 offers more choices, albeit all civil. Richard
  13. You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game. Sorry, couldn't resist. I'll get me coat now. Richard

    Jet 2 livery

    My 738 decals arrived this morning, only 2 days after I paid for them. Like Dave Swindell, I am very impressed with the quality of the decals and the service provided by Richard. I'm very much looking forward to getting started. Richard
