|Thread: Where do you get your Lead from ?|
Yes it's about time you finished your Veronica plenty of new builds on the go on the AMBO Facebook group.
All the best Ray
|Thread: Flying with Spectacles|
If you mostly use a laptop on the desk Varifocals will be fine as you are naturally looking down, but if you use a big monitor at the correct height ie looking straight ahead like I do, and as Shaun mentioned they are no good irrespective of how expensive they are as you will be using the distance part of the lens.
Just a thought, Varifocals are great for everyday, driving, flying, modelling etc, but I'm on the screen all day for work and cheaper readers are better ! as with Varifocals you will find yourself tipping your head back and looking down your nose to focus on the screen
|Thread: TEam Minimax|
What a fabulous model, such an interesting tail, and the color scheme is one of my favourites, You have hit the spot with this one

|Thread: would you volunteer ?|
While waiting for a take off slot on an Easyjet 737 flight from Gatwick to Dublin as we weren't going any where for 30 minutes slid up to the cockpit to chat to the crew, they were only to happy to have somebody else to chat with and they gave me the left hand seat to sit in I think only the APU was running !
I think a controlled crash would be achievable but slowing her down from 450 knots would be the issue without stalling !! There are an awful lot of dials & switches
When my daughters were young flying to the Med 35 years ago you had to visit the flight deck it was the done thing .
|Thread: BMFA 2021 Membership ????|
Thanks for your response, I am fully aware of all the options available, I guess I'm only playing Devil's advocate for the old postal renewal system, as I'm guessing quite a few of our older members wouldn't have computer access ?
I know a lot of folk re-join out of habit and tradition (and for the insurance etc)
Had a lovely email from the BMFA saying my membership has now expired, as I am waiting for the postal renewal form to arrive to pay by cheque, the postal system must be in meltdown ?? nothing arrived yet !
I work on a computer all day so the last thing I would do is use the technology to renew
The postal renewal forms are in the post so all is well.
Is it just me ? or should I have received the BMFA/CAA postal membership renewal form by now ??
I'm itching to pay some money
