    R, @RWG686 don't suppose you panned right with photo ten did you? Think it may be a Moravia? light twin similar to the Miles Gemini, if so, any chance of a photo being posted? Paul

    'Ere......I've only just woken up....thank you very much! As for the hat.....well, I mean........ Come down here....complaining about our inability to read a map....then has the temerity to blame the sat-nav....I don't know..........top of the access road, turn RIGHT, left at the first roundabout, follow road to huge roundabout turn right................et, voila!.........M62! When you get to the M6.....(clue) BIG green signs with M6 on 'em .....turn right and perambulate in a northerly direction, 'nother clue, Sun coming through Steve's window......when the number on said BIG Green sign no longer says M6 but has changed to read A74, we can all breath a sigh of relief......England is, once again, SAFE!!! Cor, what is it with Crabs and maps.......at least Devon's safe.......

    Ahh, you needed money to pay off the Sharks, there were no Shark nets where the Catalinas were moored......Uncle got chucked out of the side blister, think it might be classed as 'forces humour'....... WHO said anything about help?!!!
  12. R, @RWG686 are you fickle or what? What gives with a D-M helicopter when you have a range of F-K designs to go at?!! Also stop picking on Che @Che Guava not his fault he can't draw at the moment.......he may only be at the crayon stage............sorry, my mistake, though you'd put psychotherapist......

    R, @RWG686 that would be Tamiya for the XF55. Paint finish I think would be fairly matt. Got to remember it was dope over Irish linen, if there were any gloss it would be patchy. W.W.I Roundel Blue, from what little I've found out was similar to the Interwar Blue. With the W.W.II Roundel, carbon black was added in larger quantities making it darker and duller. Hope this helps, Paul
