  1. Episode 2 James May's Big Trouble in Model Britain Episode 2 of 2 The concluding episode of the series, introduced and narrated by model train enthusiast James May, follows Hornby’s new management team in a desperate attempt to save the company. In this episode Ken, head of audio development, is sent on a top-secret mission to capture the sound of a steam locomotive for its potential use in a brand new model. Simon Kohler, Hornby’s number two, tries to rejuvenate the tired Scalextric brand name with a flashy new advert, but there is a problem: with the company strapped for cash, the budget is miniscule and it will have to be made entirely with in-house staff. Meanwhile, the company takes on its first female product designer, Caitlin Williams. Fresh out of university, Caitlin is put on the Scalextric design team and we go behind the scenes to see what it takes to produce her first car. In the climactic finale, we see Simon take on two of his biggest rivals as Hornby’s 2019 range includes two products that have the competitors fuming, leading to a dramatic showdown.
  2. Do you not think they would throw it open to more than one to build, simply to cover their bases?
  3. I enjoyed it too, it makes the release of the Hellcat a savvy move, most US modellers will want to buy US aircraft rather than the likes of Spits or Mossies or Typhoons, stuff some of them may never heard of, but a 1/24th Hellcat has to be a winner over the pond amongst the general model builders, and that drives sales. I cannot fathom out how anyone thought it was a clever idea to destroy the tooling for their past kits, that is like cutting ones own legs off at the knees.

  6. It looks like they took the top off an F-16, the arse end off an F-18, glued all of it to the top of a boat, then sawed the boats nose off to let the air in.
  7. The flypast https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-47323045
  8. The “Mi Amigo” flypast, led by a sole F-15 is tomorrow (22nd Feb) at 8.45am. The aircraft expected to take part in this historic event include F-15’s, Typhoons, Ospreys and a Dakota but will be dependent on the weather. The aircraft have been marked with the names of the Mi Amigo crew. The BBC will be broadcasting live from the park from 6am to 9.15am on Friday, and visitors are encouraged to arrive at the park anytime from 7.15am. A memorial service will take place from 8am, with a Bugler playing one verse of Amazing Grace. There will be a reading from St John’s Gospel by a Royal British Legion and a bugler will play the Last Post and Reveille, followed by the flypast at 8.45am. The best viewing area will be in the large field close to the Endcliffe Park café, where a big screen will be set up to relay events to the crowd.
