Re: None Aircraft - My other builds.

Great to see, those ships are really well done and nicely mounted too. The finish on the Black Pearl is ace, did you use a wash of some kind?

Used to enjoy the old Airfix 1/600 kits but haven't done one for ages, I should give it another go.

Re: My stuff

Thanks for the info, I wondered if that was the Revell Mosquito but then thought "Can't be, it's too good". :D Well done mate. That Spit is very convincing, never built that kit but looks like I'll have to buy one... Yes please to your other stuff, I'm pretty sure most of us "dabble" in non-aircraft...

How long has MH415 been in the UK? I thought she was Down-under.

Re: Blackburn Beverley anyone?

It's good that someone came up with the cash to enable '259 to dodge the scrapper, at least for a few more years. I wish them all the best with the plan, an aircraft this large that's been outdoors for decades is bound to present challenges when it comes to dismantling and roading. It is a bit of a ...

Re: A trawl through the archives part 4 (god not more crap)

Great shots, that Role Demo Tonka steals it for me. Thanks for putting them up.

The "DH9a" shot is a corker too, although in fact it's the Collection's SE5a.

Good selection, that Dak pair shot illustrates the conditions pretty accurately for anyone who wasn't there.

I was surprised to see the smoke system on the Buchon, does anyone know how long it's been fitted?

There appears to be some sunshine and shadowing in some of your pictures, I accuse you of blatant use of Photoshop good Sir! :D

In all seriousness, you've managed to get a decent set of pics that make the conditions look half decent (which they weren't!), well done mate.

Great update Blue, good to see some Meteor fettling going on in other places. That's a very extensive job they appear to be doing on WS760, working outdoors too. It must give you great comfort to know you're not the only sufferer of Meteor-itis, is being with other sufferers a good form of therapy??...

We've just returned from a very cold, windy and sometimes wet show. Full marks to the pilots for putting up such a good display in such challenging conditions, the Stampe team in particular had some very strong gusts and rain to contend with.

Re: Aero Legends 80th Anniversary Battle of Britain Airshow

As far as I'm aware, the Lanc had a few parts late back from winter servicing so it was June before she made her first flight of the year.

Unless there's been another problem since..?

Yes. I think you are right. Must dig out my old photos. I have quite a bit of the '92 show on video somewhere. That show as the last flight of Phantom II FGR.1 XV582 'Black Mike', now at Cosford, if memory serves. She was at Cosford, but has moved on to St.Athan more recently. https://www.swam.onli...

Re: Covid casualties - British Airways B.747s at Kemble

In a perfect world, one or more 747's would end up in museums over here, and I don't just mean aviation museums. The 747 has affected global travel massively, to the point that you could say it has played a role in shaping modern national identities. Rather like the Model T Ford, it has helped shape...

Re: RAF Leuchars 1992: Phantoms, Flankers and Other Types

Phabulous shots, lots of interesting types too. Love the Phantom take-off shots with the gear retracting, brilliant. I saw those Russian types at Farnborough the same weekend, that Su24 scheme was a bit unusual. I saw a fairly recent pic of this aircraft on the web not long ago and it's still flying...
