Re: 48 Hour Photo Competition - 111

It might lack a bit in quality but makes up for it in rarity.

Re: proof that elephants are more intelligent than ivory collectors

From the very same article.
Elephants without tusks were left alone by hunters, leading to an increased likelihood they would breed and pass on the tuskless trait to their offspring.

Kinetic 1/48 F-16AM D-Day Anniversary

This is the Kinetic F-16AM in 1/48 scale. Not the easiest kit as there are lots of options and I think there are more parts left over than I actually used. Finished in Hataka red range acrylics and with the excellent Syhart decal sheet depicting FA-57 as it appeared at Fairford in 2019. The artwork ...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Five of your best

I've always liked this one. It was taken at Farnborough in 1998 and was largely down to luck. I was on my way from our vantage point to get something to eat and as always I took my camera and snapped this as the Concorde came into land. I've been lucky enough to have it published as well. https://li...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

This should be an open goal for the Opposition but where are they? They should on the TV and radio calling for Johnson to resign immediately. Johnson's incompetence is criminal and he should be held to account. Instead he's f888ed off on holiday. Again. Utterly despicable POS that he is.
