  1. Yesterday I got a shock when I looked at the price of the Airfix 1/12 scale Bentley. £99.95.😱 Is that not extracting the urine for a kit first produced in 1971? I see its also on evilbay for £235 plus £12 postage...totally nuts.
  2. I believe there is a cure available now. Soak them inside a pussers sock, strain then eat the sock. Probably tastes better

    The Free French memorial above Gourock.
  4. I've just gone and broken two of my modelling rules. I've never seen this aircraft and the model is in 1/48 scale. Blame @Gorby. He's probably forgotten about the chat nearly 18 months ago though. Ian from Scott's models tried to charge me storage for the kit as he's had it so long. @phoenix54 did you guess correctly?
  5. I was about to stick the canopy on when I remembered the gun sight. One duly made and since stuck in.
  6. First coats of black, white and aluminium. Note the masking tape in the wheel well which I missed during the removal bit.

    Having been alerted by @Lost Cosmonauts to the presence of a Norwegian submarine, I popped down to Innellan pier to catch her. Not the best of conditions and my plan to get her further up the estuary was scuppered by rain. Ula class boat ,one of six operated by the Royal Norwegian Navy. She was off Cumbrae when I first saw her and it made me realise the task the the Sunderlands and Catalinas must have had. I had difficulty spotting her in nine square miles of water. and here she is two miles away so a big crop to the photo

    ZH850 has been in and out of Prestwick over the past few days so may be that one. QE is rumoured to be coming into Hunterston before she goes east. I have my doubts though. Hopefully I'm wrong.
  11. No. https://www.mapsl.co.uk/spitfire-mk1
  12. We need something to show the scale. For all we know it could be 1/720000000000000000000000000000000000000 scale. Will it be able to survive in Coventry ? Does it work like a Goa'uld implant?
