|Thread: Full size aircraft displays|
My son's had a ride in one of those (a Typhoon, that is).
And, yes, he was sick.
Boy, was I jealous.
Not the being sick part obviously.
|Thread: Rugby World Cup 2019.|
Don, you're quite correct. I'd be happy to see any Nh team bring the cup home and, yes, even England.
Martin, apologies. You're correct too. I should have said runners up medals. Still think the attitude was wrong though as was the teams 'stunt' before the AB game and rightly fined for it. However, please don't assume I'm an 'average punter'. I doubt you know anything about my involvement with the game as I don't know anything about yours.
The day rugby players start acting like petulant, overpaid footballers is the day I give up being involved with the game.
Not into digs? "not as if the rest of our Countries set much of an example of late is it ?"
Pot, kettle, black etc.
Next time I won't bother supporting England.
And, no. I haven't
I also feel it was a bit disrespectful to refuse/take off losers medals. Not a good example to kids looking up to their heroes.
Token Scotsman here.
Bit disappointed that England lost if only for the desire to see the cup come to the NH for a change.
However, I feel England continue to suffer from a problem I feel they've had for a long time and that is the inability to execute a plan B when things start to go wrong. If the game plan works, they're amongst the best in the world but when things start to go awry there seems to some sort of mental blockage (the Calcutta cup comes to mind). Having said that, when your scrum is so comprehensively dominated, it's always going to be an uphill struggle.
Just a pity they couldn't save their best game for last.
Sadly, it looks to be all over for our Celtic cousins (just as the AB's score another try).
Or not, just ruled forward.
Hope England have more than just one good game in them.
As a Scotsman, this is really hard to say.....but best of luck to England next weekend.
However, if you do win, PLEASE don't bang on about it for the next 12 years.
|Thread: Stash clear out|
I will, Ray. They will be going on Ebay shortly if there's no interest here.
Thanks Chris. Much appreciated.
Darn. Must have missed the time limit.
Any mods online that can help??
Errr... can someone remind me how to edit posts please?
Given the amount of junk mail I get I doubt it would make much difference but I guess you're right. I'll edit. Ty.
Having a clear out of kits I know I will now never get around to building, sadly.
All are boxed in original packaging and are complete with all plans, parts, mouldings and decals where appropriate.
First up are 2 blasts from the past, a Balsacraft Bristol Blenheim and Spitfire Mk IX. The Benheim is in as new condition as is the contents of the Spitfire box although the box itself is a bit faded and bashed.
£150.00 each plus postage ovno.
Secondly, a Ben Buckle Super 60, Again all complete and as new in original packaging. This is an early 3 channel kit for 4 or 2 stroke engines but I guess could be easily converted to electric.
£70.00 ovno plus postage.
Lastly is a real rarity. A Micro Mould version of the David Boddington Tinker. I believe this was the subject of a mass build some 6 years ago and I know an updated version is still available from DB at around £120.00. This is a complete kit and contains all the original accessories including wheels, bent wire u/c, screws, wire push rods and linkages. This is described as a 2-3 channel version 09-15 engines but, again, I'm fairly sure could be converted to electric power fairly easily.
£100.00 ovno plus postage.
Photos of all kits can be sent to interested parties but, as stated, the contents are all in excellent as new condition although some of the boxes are showing their age.
I'm open to sensible offers but 'will you take £10.00' chancers will just be ignored.
I'd rather see these go to someone who will build and fly them than lie around in my man cave.
I can be PMd on here if you have any questions.

|Thread: Six Nations 2019|
Try getting rid of 'no arms' Farrell for a start.
|Thread: Gatwick drone incident|
Anger got the better of me.
Liz Kershaw on Sky News. 'Ban all drones from UK skys!'
And I was told to grow up when I suggested media over reaction??
No need to be offensive. I only used the Daily Mail as an example of the likely tabloid exaggeration that's bound to be in most of the papers tomorrow. I think it's inevitable that a great deal of assumptions will be made, most of it provided by 'experts' that probably don't know one side of a drone from the other.
Expect Daily Mail rhetoric to go into overdrive.
'Enemies of the State' perhaps?
|Thread: Drones fight back|
Where's my body double??
|Thread: Traplet statement|
It is worth noting that the statement issued give no indication which 'products and services' will be offered. Like everyone else, I hope that the plans and parts are part of these products and services.
However, although I appreciate the view that some may not wish to deal with or purchase form the new company for whatever reason, that approach will only lead to the further devaluation of the plans and part service. If the market for plans and parts declines, how long will the service be available.
Whilst it may stick in the craw of some I would guess that this new service (if it comes to pass) will inevitably go the same way as Traplet if the modelling community doesn't support it.
