Dave and Jim were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as aircraft mechanics in Melbourne, Australia.
One day the airport was fogged in and they were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do.
Dave said, 'Man, I wish we had something to drink!'
Jim says, 'Me too. Y'know, I've heard you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz.
You wanna try it?'
So they pour themselves a couple of glasses of high octane booze and get completely smashed.
The next morning Dave wakes up and is surprised at how good he feels.
In fact he feels GREAT! NO hangover! NO bad side effects.
Then the phone rings. It's Jim.
Jim says, 'Hey, how do you feel this morning?'
Dave says, 'I feel great, how about you?'
Jim says, 'I feel great, too. You don't have a hangover?'
Dave says, 'No that jet fuel is great stuff -- no hangover, nothing. We ought to do this more often..'
' Yeah, well there's just one thing.'
'What's that?'
'Have you broken wind yet?'
Well, DON'T - cause I'm in New Zealand'

Thread: Ebay sellers...

Last year there were three of four Chinese sellers offering brand new engines atgive away prices. Several people including me paid up. WE did get our money back but it was a scam as we suspected.

This looks very like the scams from last years.

As far as I am concerned semi scale is a scale model that is reconisable but may have been stretched in places For example, Jezebel is scale but the wing has been stretched to give more wing area,

Then Sport Scale is much more accurate but with slight simplification in some areas.

Cartoon scale is something like a Magnatilla with the outlines corrected to a recogniseable shape.

Miss Lizzy was not ever meant to be scale and the nearest one could come would be "Inspired by"

In about 1965 or 67 I think, I bought a SInclair micro radio kit. I tried to phone them but the number was wrong and I kept getting 999. I gave up in the end. Never did get it working

Or possibly my quotes re "Don't confuse me with the facts" or "I don't recognise the facts."

These were intended to refer to the average politician and not Gonzo so I hope he didn't take them the wrong way

We all get a bit up tight at times about things but the best thing is to let it roll of your back like water off a ducks back.

If someone has upset you tell them, maybe there was a miss understanding somewhere.

Me? I have been jumped on several times over the years, sometimes justifiably, sometimes not but I just accept it and keep going.

Hi Moweerrman.

That looks very smart indeed.

Slec have a range of pilots. I like the sportsman ones but you do have to join them and paint them. They also have some pianted pilots.

There is an old saying. "I have made up my mind. Don't try and confuse me with the facts!!!"

You may also have heard a very common phrase these days. "I don't recognise the (insert Figures, facts etc as appropriate"

Hi Chris.

Just started a new build, the first for about 6 months. and I have been using those mini squeeze bottles from Banggood that you reccomended.

I am really pleased with them, They save so much glue compared with the standard Aliphatic bottle and I don't get glue everywhere

Great idea Thanks!

The Federal Appeals COurt has just ruled that the FAA registration scheme is illegal


Thread: Do you think some sort of registration system would protect the hobby from rogue flyers?

Just been advised that the FAA has been told that their registration rules for drones and model aircraft cannot be used.


THis was overgturned by the Fedral Appeals Court

My first calculator cost me £11 in the late 70s, just a very basic one which had a strange input sequence called "Reverse Polish logic" IT saved me hours of work on scaling a set of drawings

ON Poundland.

I made the mistake of buying a set of their batteries. I used them in a camera.

They went flat after taking five (5) photos.
