  1. I've been in two minds about starting a thread for this GB but an event earlier today has inspired me to go ahead. Please bear with me for a moment if you want to know the background to my choice, otherwise I'll cut a story short and (spoiler alert!) say look to the end of the next paragraph. A vague relative passed away recently in unfortunate circumstances and my cousin phone this evening to let me know. During the conversation we were reminiscing about days passed and the stories once told that are all too often lost as another generation fades away. One such tale that came to my mind was one told to me by my grandmother; in 1939 my grandfather was ground-crew with 602 squadron and used to working on the Gloster Gauntlets when their first Spitfires were taken on charge. The sight and sound of these wonderful new machines clearly had an impact upon everyone during those worrying days for he wrote a letter home to my grandmother on the subject in which he said, "We're in with a chance lass". Thus I made sure the moment Airfix' new 48th scale Spitfire I kit with it's 602 Sqn. decal option hit the shelf of my local model shop it didn't sit there long. As with some many other Britmodellers I've a few ongoing projects scattered across my workbench at the moment that were supposed be cleared before starting anything new so there may be a short delay before progress occurs on this one.
