|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!

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.
As well he should as that's where his brand of fascism appears to gain most acceptance. Frankly, we really don't need his racist opinions up here. After all, we've got bigotry to keep us busy.
I agree in the principal of a protest vote but don't feel UKIP are deserving of it. Their racist xenophobia reflects poorly on a country with a proud tradition of tolerance and acceptance and shames us all. We once stood alone against fascism, now we appear to want to embrace it with open arms.
"It is a sad reflection on how badly this country has been run for far too long."
How very true. I was listening to Jim Sillars talk recently and, irrespective of your political view, he was one of the old school politicians who could sway you with their passion and depth of commitment. Both parties had them. Heseltine, Whitelaw, Michael Foot etc. You might not agree with them, but, by God, they were great orators. I don't think anyone believes a word the present lot say.

A huge swing to UKIP sadly, I expect. Except here in Scotland where the MEP's will be divided up between Labour and the SNP. Thankfully, UKIP don't stand a chance north of the border.
|Thread: Spektrum Dx6i for sale|
If I hadn't recently bought one, I'd be interested at that price. Seems like a reasonable deal to me.
I might be particularly stupid, but I don't think you've actually said how much you want for it.
|Thread: TV of yesteryear|
Can anyone remember if it was Grandstand or World of Sport that used to feature a motorsport event that I remember as being a cross between trials and rallycross. It usually featured the Army v (possibly) London Car Club. The idea of the event was for the driver to choose a route from A to B across what looked like a gravel quarry. The Army were in the likes of Land Rovers or Saladin APC's while the Car Club were in proper trials cars. Usually, there was a shorter but difficult route or a longer easier one.
This was back in B&W days, by the way.

That's cool. But now I want to see how he lands it.
