Re: Swallows!

an even darker note the Barnes Wallis pub near Howden has also gone for good. It was a great local aviation landmark as it stood next a railway crossing on one of the long straight bits of track that made it a regular and irresistible target for young (ok, and old)pilots unable to resist rolling in ...

Little Cars

Paul is normally a mandatory stop at the shows - airbrushes, tools accessories and the indispensable GS Hypo cement.

Has a great mail order service in the mean time. ... 2153-p.asp

Re: Blackburn Aircraft

hi David Good to see you back..................gosh they really knew how to make aeroplanes at Blackburn didn't they? I will have to confess that I've never heard of the Sprat - nor for that matter the Vendace - must pay more attention. Have you heard that the last remaining Beverley has been sold (...

Show update

With the exception of Telford it looks like most shows, certainly in the earlier part of the are cancelled, or the rather more positive approach 'postponed' until Next year (Cosford and Milton Keynes have taken this route). However Spalding have confirmed September and booked the venue so there are ...

Re: Clyde Puffer

Malcolm that's a cracking job - dearly though I like aeroplanes it is good to see something so original and full of character - I'm intrigued by using Halfords primer for the hull plating - that's often overdone in our scale, given the interest any chance of a more detailed build description for the...

Re: Panther, Ambush in the Ardennes (Arrowhead)

Nice one Tim - white metal is coming on isn't it? Re the scene - I recently picked up the full DVD box set of 'Band of Brothers' in a charity shop for three quid.
