  1. A couple of years ago, I managed to crack the windscreen of an Italeri Sikorsky H-19 helicopter whilst polishing it. I rang the importer to see if it would be possible for me to buy a replacement part. After being passed around the houses, I was eventually passed to a young lady who promptly told me that as it was not currently in production, there were no spares. She then suggested that I look for another kit to purchase and use the windscreen from that one!!!!!!! I said that by doing that, surely I would be left in the same position of having a kit with a missing part. I'm afraid that didn't sink in and the conversation ended.
  2. I began to watch this programme, but I soon lost interest when the narrator repeatedly referred the trainee pilot's flying test as a driving test! I realise that they must have to pitch these programmes to the lowest common denominator of public knowledge, but surely to goodness, the average "Joe Public" can tell the difference between an aeroplane and a car. Why not just call it what it is, a flying test. I just hope that this series doesn't detract from what these trainee pilots have achieved so far in their careers, by dumbing it down to soap opera standards. Good luck to them all, but please, please, please ITV, stop dumbing things down. Rant over.
  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues Paul, but seriously, if medication offers any form of relief, I'd give it a go if I were in your shoes. I hope things turn around for you soon.

    What's your day-job?

    It's a small world. I've got a copy of your RAF Pilot sitting on my window sill. I found it a couple of years ago on a well known auction site beginning with "E".
  5. Ah, that well known Rod Stewart song......... "The first cut is the deepest"
  6. It did, all over its middle and back
  7. Eeeeh, when I were a lad, I used to dream of modelling to "A Grade" standards. Seeing this feat of model engineering progress, I realise that my efforts are way down there in "F Grade", or possibly "Ungraded". But I'm more than happy to be able to watch this progress whilst I sit here sharpening my crayons............. Teacher says that if I'm a good boy next week, I can even have some paper. All joking aside Peter, this is both a pleasure to watch and an inspiration. Keep up the good work.
  8. That's a fine looking Whirlwind. I don't think that the venerable old Airfix kit has ever looked so good.

    Maths quiz

    How true.
  10. To the best of my knowledge, this scheme has never been produced in 1/72 scale. I've looked everywhere for it. Xtradecal did it in 1/32 scale, but for some reason, they didn't do it in any other scale.
  11. Mary had a little lamb, Her Father blamed the Shepherd.
  12. They're all gorgeous with that wonderful puppy smell times 3. I don't think that I could trust myself........... I'd come home with all three!!!!
  13. No sympathy whatsoever. She deserves everything she gets when she gets to Court.
  14. I remember the Tucano painted in that scheme, but it was definitely a Spitfire over the castle. As I said earlier, the picture was in the magazine a good few years ago now, besides which, the 2017 time frame that you refer to would be way out as I had stopped buying both titles in 2012 and gave away all the volumes in 2013. As you have already suggested, I'll try the publishers to see what they can unearth. I'll also check with the BBMF as they may be able to help. Thanks again for your time.
