    Spitfire: The documentary

    Hi Jeff and Carl, Hopefully this link will work: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spitfire-DVD/dp/B07D544FP7/ref=tmm_dvd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1531923296&sr=8-1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spitfire-Blu-ray/dp/B07DFRKHTP/ref=tmm_blu_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1531923296&sr=8-1 They are UK links but hope this helps, Cheers Adrian

    Spitfire: The documentary

    Saw it last night in Bristol. I'd agree with Shoggz above, really excellent documentary and very moving in parts. The closing aerobatic sequence was beautifully filmed. The documentary stitches original film, parts of 'the first of the few' and modern footage but has no CGI (for me thats a good thing). The film does use various marks of surviving Spitfires to tell the story throughout the second world war. By far the best film I've seen at a cinema in a long while. It will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in September (pre-order placed 5 minutes after getting home from the cinema).

    RAF at 100

    Saw it during lunch hour at work and thought it was excellent. Not quite as lucky as my son who got to go with Air Cadets to see it live and to have lunch at Horseguards parade. Group build for RAF 100 is an excellent idea. May even persuade me to get out my Hobby Boss Spitfire.

    Yeovilton Airday 2018

    Thanks all, the Cessna is an amphibian with main wheels that retract into the bottom of the float, lovely aeroplane and absolutely immaculate. One of the highlights of the day. Maru, yes the RCAF had both the Hornet Special scheme and a standard line aircraft alongside a C130 in the statics. Can't wait for RIAT, 4 days of aeroplanes (and sunburn).

    Yeovilton Airday 2018

    Hi Maru, ask and you shall receive, a couple of sneaky ones from Weston as well, the Whirlwind just looks such a happy helicopter and did really good work when in service. I remember them well from RAF Chivenor including seeing one jump started at our local school when one popped in for a visit and it's battery went flat. Hope you enjoy, Cheers Adrian

    G43's Choose Your Own Adventure Build Log!

    I've always liked contrasting models (late v early Spitfire, Mosquito v HE219) so a good contrast would be the sheer bulk and power of the Lightningbolt v the delicate appearance of the Zero. Whatever you build, hope you enjoy.

    G43's Choose Your Own Adventure Build Log!

    Fork tailed devil all the way, built the revell one in my distant youth and loved it.

    1/32 or 1/35 WWII Refuelling Trucks

    If you want something modern and 'in the field' accurate armour do a UBRE re-fuelling set that can be used with either a Stalwart, Bedford MK or a Foden 8x8. All thats needed now is the 1/32 Harrier GR1/3 to go with them.

    Painting a real F-16

    Hopefully shall see this beautiful aeroplane at Yeovilton airshow in 4 weeks time. Alongside the equally impressive Canadian Hornet it is shaping up to be a special day. Congratulations on a very special scheme, you should be very proud.

    EBay Pricing on Auctions

    In my early and naive days of ebay I once bid more of an item than I could have got it for by going straight to the vendors online shop. Can't blame the vendor as I should have engaged brain but the enthusiasm of a bidding war got the better or me. Now, I put in my maximum bid and walk away. Sometimes I have got a bargain, mostly I've been outbid. Either way, I've never paid more than I think the item is worth. I have set up my email account so anything from ebay goes into it's own folder so I'm not tempted by 'you've been outbid' messages.

    Machloop Cad East

    A great day out and a brilliant bunch of very knowledgeable people at Cad East who assisted and helped myself and my Son to make the day really enjoyable. The aeroplanes were cool too. Credit to the MC-130j crew from RAF Mildenhall (call sign Strix ) who made 3 passes, 2 with the ramp open and the guys sitting on the back, coolest job in the world.
