Special Hobby 1/32 Bristol M-1C

It's been a while but after a few months of a break from modelling, I thought I'd build this one. Special Hobby Bristol M-1C in 1/32 scale, which is about the perfect scale for aeroplanes of this size.

48 Hour photo comp: Into the white

It's becoming tricky to pick something new but I'll try this. I know it's not massively original but I don't think it's been done before. Simply aircraft that are predominantly white. Three pics please. Some examples. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50770268703_9c3fef9c18_o.jpg zD600_03_DSC_0444...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

Where should we draw the blame line then? Brezhnev for invading in 1979, the USA in the 1980s for arming the mujahideen to fight the Russians?. Let's face it, Afghanistan has been a basket-case for decades/centuries. The West's actions in the last few years have not helped but I don't think the blam...

In the years since the Taliban were forced out, lots of good work was attempted in trying make Afghanistan a...

The problem is that for some, the comments are based on many years' experience in a professional capacity.

From a Wedgetail fleet of three, the RAF will be lucky to have one available at any one time.
