Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

Selection of stalls seem to get worse year on year, very few seemed to have an aviation focus. Completely agree with this. There was a time when every other stall in a show would sell model kits but as far as I could see there was one this year! More and more stalls selling crap like the one that w...

Re: Challenge coins at the show

I bought patches from the Navy Merlin, German Lynx and Orion. I did buy a coin from the Navy Merlin too (although it's quite small in size) and a nice D-Day commemorative coin from the Red Arrows trailer so challenge coins were out there but not as many as I would have liked as I collect them myself...

Wanted: Fairford B-52 Deployment Goodies

If anyone is popping to Fairford I have heard that the crews are selling t-shirts and patches. I was wondering if someone might be able to pick me up something or if anyone has any spares? I'd obviously pay for postage costs!
Thanks

Re: Travelodge LHR Central

I've stayed at that Travelodge. The approach is right over the hotel but the rooms must have triple glazing or something because you can't hear a thing inside, maybe just a distant rumble!

Re: Kempsford Camping

We were in the top field at the top hedge by the fire / water point. Not the one in the very corner squashed in by the fence but next to it with the green tent and blue car. Definitely a pitch with marker pegs either side of us. Not sure why the water kept going off though!

Australian AF - Squadron Print and small RIAT patch (the larger PVC ones had sold out already!) Ukrainian AF - mug, RIAT patch, challenge coin,...

Re: RIAT 2018 Arrivals

Wind 040/03kts forecasting 050/05kts. From what was posted before I’d have a guess that we’ll be on 27. Anyone know any different? Looks like it'll be right on the edge again. If the gusts reach what they did yesterday I imagine 09 but we'll see. I am at East and it is very busy. People being warne...

Hi Rob
These tickets are now sold sorry but yes you're right, they're only valid at the yellow entrance.

Thanks for the interest though,

Re: RIAT 2017 (Discussion & Participation Thread)

Could this Ukrainian talk be anything to do with the post Tom made about the aviation gods shining down and something coming together for RIAT 2017 a few weeks ago or did we conclude that was non aircraft related?

I'm glad it's not just me who has noticed this.

I'm one of those that likes to use artists oil paints for my panel lines. Seems to work ok for me and looks realistic enough!

Re: 1/144 GB: Revell Boeing 787 - now complete

It's a nice looking model but you're right, the decals don't quite look right. I built this kit and used BA decals. I can't remember what make they were but they were from Hannants and they look the part. I had the opposite problem though, I painted the blue a bit too high up the fuselage so it does...
