    Can you believe this???

    Probably loading ammo into the drum, then feeding it into the gun and loading it ready for a sortie I’m not sure if it’s the same as the A-10 but you can see the gun turning as the ammo is fed into the drum. Traditionally if the gun rotates the pin fires..I’m not sure how you make that safe other than making sure no live rounds are in the gun while it’s turning??

    1/32 Marauder

    So the word on the street was that 3D printing used a material that when combined with the heat of the process makes the finished product not long lasting..is that true? Or is there a trick to get a long lasting model?

    Its definitely there when the aircraft is flying..wings have obvious oil canning when there's flying pressure over the wing surface (also what an ungodly racket!)

    https://www.urbanghostsmedia.com/2016/06/avro-lancaster-replica-dam-busters-remake/ this is is a bit of the back story..Weta Workshops and Peter Jackson went to MOTAT in Auckland to try use their Lanc to take detailed measurments from but MOTAT weren’t keen to have the Weta people crawling all over her. So apparently a Canadian group with a Lanc let them go ahead and got some generous $$ for their troubles. (Of course Weta and Wingnut are pretty much hand in hand)

    Boeing /Saab T-X for the win

    The T-50 was the nicest looking..the USAF has made a habit of taking the ugly sister to the dance lately

    A-4M "The Little Scooter"

    Nice..where did you get that helmet? That’s cool! Although I’d need a British one from the 90’s

    ‘scuse my ignorance but does this model have the Allison or Merlin?

    I miss the RAF Nimrod

    They need to park the jets on deck in greater numbers from time to time when the pilots take on the engineers in the ships basketball game

    Prototype Boeing 777 Comes to Pima!

    Man I know of one operator in the South Pacific that would give an arm and a leg to swap out the Rollers for the GEs on its 787s

    Brazilian AF-1

    Hey Anthony, is this what the RNZAF used on the maverick rail on the Skyhawks or just the sidewinder (ie will I need 1 or 2?)
