As promised.

I'll be deep cleaning my Shed next week so I thought, for posterity, I'd record the event by assembling all my inventory in the garden for a photo call

I'll post a picture next week but thought I'd get the ball rolling.

It'd be great to see what you all have hidden away.

Thread: Anyone still using a balsa stripper?

Still use a Slec.

Found a great alternative use for it to slice strips of 8mm insulation for my Campervan floor. Had to make lots of various sizes to fill the gaps in the ribbed floor.20200214_115831.jpg

Neither number 2 as he's likely to unravel when the going gets tough.

Definitely not Pingu, we know he can't fly....😁

If you get an email from the government saying that you can't eat tinned spiced pork or ham because it contains covid 19 ignore it. It's just spam! 😉

Ate into my plastic stash and built myself an allotment weather vane.

1/32 Revell. A 48 hour build.

A fantastic thermal indicator.20200406_143122.jpg

As I said to my daughter, just living through a bit of history.

Does a charger/discharger perform a similar function.

No, looking at the medium term forecasts for this end of the country. I suspect I have begun to chit my spuds a tad early.

Bang on Cliff, they were erected to deter, stop or damage any enemy aircraft from using it as a landing site. Not sure how plausible it was for the Germans to land there but as you know Dartmoor played a big role in WW2 and a lot of D Day prep went on there, there aren't many flat places in and around Dartmoor that weren't already in use by the Allies so maybe it was a sound precaution.

There was a temporary airfield near the Okehampton Range Camp long since farmed over.

Some way off, odd thing is I've stood there numerous times.

Next time you're up there, assuming you don't already know, have a guess at the purpose of the random vertical wooden stakes sticking up at various places on the plateau of Hamel Down.

There is also an interesting memorial to a WWII crash site at the northern end of Hamel Down.

I've been wracking my brains trying to work out the location. I've ruled out the North Moor so will hazard a guess at somewhere around the Buckfastleigh area.

Thread: Sloping at Ivinghoe in 1963

Watched it again and I may have spotted Les Moulster, he may have been the one sitting down with a flag .

I was wrong about the fence I think. I forgot that you had to over the stile if you walked from the Beacon to Gallows Hill.

24/12/2019 23:12:00


What a find, I remember Les Moulster from the Ivinghoe Soaring Association in the 80s I think.

I might be wrong but the very first pilot shown flying looked suspiciously like the famous Mike Ellins.

Could young Sean Bannister be there as well.

Have to say that was one of the best videos I've seen all year, noteworthy was the requirement to have insurance and the scale of the event.

That fence was definitely not there during my time up there.

Just brilliant.
