Put a Face to your Name Mk.II


Recommended Posts

The old thread that has been running for ages seems to have done a runner, so I'm starting a new one for people to post up pics of their delightful faces so that we can laugh at welcome them properly to the forum, or go "Oh my goodness, the poor chap!" to existing members.  If anyone finds the original thread, do please let us know. :hmmm:  Thanks to @Parabat for drawing this to our attention.  maybe he broke it? :shrug:

 

I should really start the thread with a mugshot of me, but as I've never been one to enjoy being photographed I don't have many shots of me in the last 10 years that I don't wince at, so I'll spare you from having to look at me. ^_^

 

Who's going to be first?

Oh go on then, may as well bite the bullet!

 

Couple of years ago, first visit to RAF Hendon with an American friend of mine who's aviation mad and happens to live in Oshkosh :worthy:

 

I'm on the left

You’ve been warned ... 

Arggghhhhhh!!!! :o

 

Do you mind, I've just had lunch.

 

I'm sure there must be something in the rules to prevent this sort of thing?

You're turn @Gorby 

I read that as "you've turned Gorby", and for a moment I was wondering "from what, into what?" :hmmm:

Against my better judgement, but you asked for it....

Taken a couple of months ago, on holiday in Scotland, by a passing American (they get everywhere don't they). I hope you don't need to be told which one is Mrs Gorby.

Not many people know I'm an ancient Roman soldier, most people think I'm just ancient.

I'm sure I read somewhere that they'd stopped doing that now.  So if that's true, no :(

Telegrams ceased in 1982-ish but her Maj still sends a congrats message

Hobbyist in his natural environment, the relatively clean and tidy working area should be taken with a pinch of salt however...this is one messy modeller!
