Re: Topic of the week #104 - the Transall

A few uninspiring photos of an aeroplane that was never particularly inspiring to me either. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53720474817_09a9b55663_o.jpg EGXJ_2001-07-28_5084_2001388_05 by Derek N.Ferguson , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53720474837_cc288edbf3_o.jpg EGCD_1999_06_...

South and West Museum Trip

A few snaps from an enjoyable few days touring around some museums, most of which I'd never been to before. Firstly Solent Sky in Southampton. A lovely collection with a very warm welcome. As at most museums, photography is tricky but some great exhibits. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53671488...

A pair of 1/144 HS Tridents

Firstly the X-scale Trident 1, finished in the BEA markings of G-ARPA. Not a bad kit but some details are a little too small for 1/144 scale, certainly for 60 year old eyes and fingers! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53585354909_09ed130cd8_o.jpg z20240312_125727 by Derek N.Ferguson , on Flickr ...
