  1. I will share my programming tip to get the week 3 books up. It's pretty sophisticated, even if I do say so myself. Open the week 2 page: https://ospreypublishing.com/blog/Free_eBooks_week_2/ Then go to the address bar & change the 2 to a 3. Press enter.
  2. It's not so much backing them up - I use Google Drive for that as well - it's the thought of killing thousands of threads by making the photos disappear. The time required to go back through each thread & replace with a new host is too much. PB killed thousands of threads this way. I agree PB is easy to use, it has amongst the best interface if you ask me. But.....
  3. Oh, that's just beautiful. And the SBU-1 Corsair Command Aircraft looks like is a must have. But - I havent been paying attention - I go to the site to buy and: There's a 1/32 de Havilland Dragon Rapide in development!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? With 2 engines!! TAKE MY MONEY. TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. My offer still stands...... I hear of many, many people who can't order for various reasons.
  5. She may be making another speech before too long..... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52192604
  6. Ta da!! https://ospreypublishing.com/blog/Free_eBooks_week_3/
  7. I find 90% of airbrush problems are caused by insufficiently - or incorrectly - thinned paint. A paint you have to thin works out cheaper in the long run, as thinner is cheaper than paint.
  8. Again, a "which car is best" discussion is asking for trouble, purely because there is no correct answer. But people try anyway.....
  9. Photobucket?! Were you not around for the "great Photobucket photos blackmail scheme"? Basically, Photobucket said pay us £300 now, or you lose your photos & your links to Photobucket pics will for ever be destroyed. And no, it wasn't April 1st. I will NEVER trust them again.
  10. Hopefully, Osprey's IT department have not been waylaid by the bloody virus.
  11. That's deeply insulting. However, as I'm practicing making balloon animals, whilst tumbling drying my multi-coloured wig & waiting for my face make-up to dry, in between sorting my collection of size 21 shoes, I'll not take any action this time. This time.
  12. The F-111 seemed to be a bit of an unlucky aircraft, especially for a twin-engined aeroplane. For instance, an early F-111 developed a serious problem that was not fixable. Crew correctly decided to eject, and the capsule ejected perfectly away from the aircraft. Unfortunately, the parachutes failed to deploy because - and this is really what happened - they were still in their shrink-wrapped delivery plastic bags, and hadn't even been connected to the aircraft. Another was testing Phoenix missiles. Pre-flight inspection noted that they might hang when ejected from the aircraft. Flight crews fixed the problem after hours of work, and undertook multiple tests. Aircraft took off & deployed a Phoenix missile against a target drone. The 13ft long missile hung, but still tried to accelerate to its mach 5 speed. With a 27 second burn time, the aircraft was seen heading out to the Atlantic at speed and, despite searches, the body of one of the pilots was never found. In another instance, 2 F-111's collided. Again, the crews ejected, but the jet engine - from one of the ejected crew capsule - managed to burn through the others parachute & destroy it. The other capsule failed to deploy parachutes at all - all four aboard died. The first three F-111 losses in Vietnam were caused by structural failure at speed. Another F-111 was brought down at low altitude due to a bird strike through the windscreen - the cockpit did not have laminated windows in the spec. Unfortunately, not the luckiest aeroplane.
  13. The best 1/6 scale, female, semi-nude, high heeled, tattooed ice-hockey model I've ever seen. (Although her legs are way over scale, like Barbie on steroids)
