|Thread: Flying models made from 'cancelled' British aircraft of the past.|
Or, indeed, P99 which looks.......interesting???
Boulton Paul P100?
|Thread: commonwealth games|
I have my doubts, Colin. I'm not in favour of a 'yes' vote and feel Scotland should remain part of the UK but I think the games have shown many Scots that we're quite capable of organising things ourselves. The lack of public support from the Government was staggering. Particularly in comparison to that shown by Cameron and Johnson at the time of the Olympics. Perhaps that's because the games were held in a Labour controlled area. I appreciate that the Commonwealth Games are not on the same scale as the Olympics but a bit more support from the powers that be might have had the effect you hope for.
I very much doubt it. The money spent in Scotland and how it is used is decided by the Scottish government and not Westminster (Not always to the approval of all Scots).
I agree that the North of England suffers badly at the hands of central government. Scotland has been given a lot in attempts to reduce the demand for independence, perhaps the north should demand the same. As it is, you'll never get a fair share in comparison to the money that gets spent in the South East.
Ok. Don't rub it in. I'm all too painfully aware that Scottish rugby is plumbing the depths at the moment.
Bit like Geodies and Scousers, then?
Couldn't agree more, John. I was at the boxing finals last night when England practically swept the board (the Scott Fitzgerald fight was fantastic) and the reception they got was great and well deserved.
Wait 'till the next Calcutta cup match, though then it'll be back to normal
|Thread: Westland Whirlwind Laser Kit|
Certainly a model I'd be interested in, cost dependent. I guess, however and given the number of sheets, it wouldn't be cheap.
|Thread: commonwealth games|
Strangely, I feel it's the other way round. We get an over abundance of English related content, particularly if it's weather related. I suppose, however, the same could be said of any part of the UK. Too much emphasis on Scotland or too much on London and the South East, it's bound to get someones back up.
No need to get shirty about it. I didn't mention anything about national stereotypes. My comment was slightly tongue in cheek. Even RCM&E made a joke about 'sucking in stomachs' in this months issue. Lighten up.
Something wrong with Scotland, Andrew?
At the risk of offending, I would have to say that the majority of aeromodelers could do with a bit of sport in their lives. Participation, not viewing. Overweight and out of condition doesn't even come close.
I, for one, am really enjoying the Games. Went to the rugby 7's at the weekend and it was sensational. Going to the boxing this weekend. Can't wait!
|Thread: DH Dragon Rapide|
That's way too nice to be modeled in foam.

|Thread: Phil Noel ME262 Traplet plan MW3666|
I'd be interested in your thoughts on the Traplet CNC pack too. I bought the PN Sea Vixen plan and instantly filed it in the 'let's look at that another day' file when I saw the complexity and number of the parts. Going with a CNC pack would be an obvious choice for me too.
|Thread: Fathers day|
So sorry to hear that, Chris. You have my deepest sympathies. This is one of these rare but sad moments when I can truly say I know exactly how you feel.
Does nobody find it slightly ironic that the page we're posting on has a banner headline reading 'We've got Fathers Day sorted....' yet everyone moans about the commercialism of it?
As someone who lost his 24 year old daughter to illness last year, this is the first time I've had a Fathers day without a card.prezzie or message from her. Yes, it is a commercial event and yes, people make money out of it but to all you moaners, please don't take it for granted. Appreciate what you've got while you have it.
|Thread: Free Glue Grab Weekend|
Yes please. Me too.
|Thread: Well, did you?|
If, by this, you are referring to myself and the one or two others that have expressed opinions on our perceptions of UKIP policies, you should, perhaps note that we were commenting on a political party and NOT those who choose to support it. You, along with everyone else on this forum, are entitled to their own opinion and if you choose to support UKIP, that's up to you. However, the use of phases like 'bile spouted by certain correspondents' and 'usual suspects' probably says more about UKIP supporters than I ever could.
