  1. I was chatting to @general melchett the other day and the subject of the old Inpact kits based on the film "Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines" came up. The film follows the adventures of a number of competitors in the 1910 London to Paris air race. The race is fictional but is closely based on the 1910 Daily Mail London to Manchester race. Our beloved General became quite nostalgic and misty eyed as he recalled how, as a newly commissioned General, in early middle age, he followed every aspect of the race. He even recalled how Baldrick, carried away by events, entered the race, strapped a pair of wings made from the feathers of the oozlem bird to his elbows (or was it his rear end? You can never be sure with Baldrick.), swallowed several cans of curried baked beans, along with ten pints of his Old Scrotum beer and took of for Manchester. What happened next is a bit confused but it would seem that there were a series of loud and very smelly explosions, Baldrick shot up in the air, disappeared up his own backside, much in the manner of the aforementioned bird and was next seen climbing out of the sewage farm adjacent to Brooklands. By all accounts he smelt better for his unscheduled dunking. Doubtless the General who was present at the time, can provide us with a more detailed explanation as to what occurred. The upshot of all this was that I ended up tracking down a Pyro boxing of the Inpact Boxkite, along with some Gaspatch spoked wheels and a Small Stuff engine. I built this kit about twenty or so years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it and it will be interesting to see what I can do with it all these years later. It is good job that I quite like doing rigging! I think the first jobs will be to lose the overdone fabric effect on the flying surfaces and to fill a number of ejector pin marks that are very prominent. It will then be time to start drilling dozens of tiny holes to take the actual rigging. More of which later. I'm not too sure how much I will get done before the weekend as I have a very full on few days with MVS duties but I am very much looking forward to this build. Thanks for looking. Martian
