    Speaking as a Blue Badge holder who has regularly had run ins with non disabled drivers blatantly using the reserved parking spaces, I say that it serves him right. I'd call it Good Karma. Let's hope that when he bought his £1.4m phallic symbol he had enough change to insure it to cover the cost of the other poor innocent driver whose Christmas has probably just been ruined. Rant over.
  2. They're excellent Neil. 10% of your soldering skills and I'd be a very happy bunny.

    And we lose another one

    RIP Sir. Thank you for your service .
  4. Don't worry about the quantity Neil, the quality of your workmanship more than compensates. Those undercarriage sub assemblies are a works of art in themselves.
  5. Great work so far. The interior looks fantastic.

    Anybody else 'obsessed' with one particular aircraft ??

    I must admit to being torn between three different aeroplanes, so I'd like to share my obsession if I'm allowed. Firstly, the Spitfire in all its marks and guises. It's such a beautiful and iconic aeroplane. I've been gradually working my way through building all the different marks in 1/48th scale, the only large quantity of 1/48th kits I have kept in my stash since releasing the rest into the wild during the Great Downscale of 2016. Secondly, the Lancaster. Just the word Lancaster summons up very strong emotions within me of the price paid by the 55,573 members of Bomber Command who were sadly lost on operations in WW2. Every year, my wife and I take a few trips down to Lincolnshire and stay at the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa, which was the one time Officers Mess for 617 Squadron. Joanne is mesmerised by the atmosphere of the place and loves to relax in the Squadron bar and take in the artefacts on display, so there's never an argument whenever I suggest going. We then toddle off to East Kirkby to see Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre and "Just Jane", the only other lady that I'm allowed to get close to. We like to go there for the 1940's Hangar Dances and the night time Lancaster taxi events. Whenever I hear those four Merlin start, it brings tears to my eyes. It's always a very moving event and if you haven't experienced one, I'd thoroughly recommend it. And last but not least, the De Havilland Dragon Rapide. Why? It's just simply a beautiful and extremely elegant old aeroplane from a bygone era.
  8. Following this one with great interest.
  9. That's a fine looking Spitfire. Did you make the propeller yourself?
  10. Amazing work as usual Peter. Each sub assembly is a fine scale model in its own right. Fantastic work.

    DH60 Gypsy Moth...

    Just simply gorgeous. Do you have an insight into the actual colour scheme for this John?

    DH60 Gypsy Moth...

    That's a lovely little diorama John with a nice back story, a beautiful Gypsy Moth and a gorgeous colour scheme. Thank you for sharing it.

    That's a great story John and very much appreciated.

    Calling all Springboks!

    Great site Mike, thanks for the link.
  15. That looks great Steve and very attractive in her dark blue colour scheme and Pacific theatre markings. Your subtle weathering technique really brings it to life.
