Re: Fairford RIAT 2002 - the unloved one

Excellent set of images from my first RIAT. If memory serves wasn't this the year the Italian G.222 suffered a nose wheel collapse on landing after its display slot?

Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk.I

Finished this last week, and the first of my Battle of Britain 80th theme. Typical Tamiya kit, mistakes of my own doing.

Re: Cats!

My rescue Cat Kassie. She was a rescue, as she was the runt of her litter no one wanted her, so I took her in. She's small for her age, she is 10 this year https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49534097856_3b7cecd4b9_b.jpg 74643690_3109837372421741_602379917862109184_n by Darren Greenwood , on Flickr

Re: Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton MR.Mk.3 WR971

You're most welcome John, I hope you found the second article interesting? All cross-referenced with his log books. As you can tell the Shackleton holds a special place in my heart, so will be a few builds of the Shackleton to come at later dates. I've made a start, but not much to show yet.

Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton MR.Mk.3 WR971

Here's a link to the review of the kit with history of the MR.3 also https://dazjg1971.blogspot.com/2019/10/ ... -avro.html

And my article about the aircraft crewed by my late Grandfather, which includes some details on why I'm depicting this particular MR.3 https://myaviationandgeneralpictures.bl ... -late.html

I'll post images as I progress with the build.

RIAT happened when the KC-135s were based there, so can't see why it can't continue at RAF Fairford.

Re: Temora, Australia June 8th showcase.

Nice set.

The difference between a Mk.VIII and Mk.XVI Spitifire is the Mk.VIII had a retractable tail wheel.
