  1. You could of had a full size starfighter in Germany in the 70's, all you had to do was purchase a patch of land and sooner or later one would drop in.
  2. The likes of the P47 is already out there so why would they produce a kit where they have competition, surely market sIzes need to be a consideration, I am surprised the Tiff did so well in the USA as its not exactly a well known type over there... Mk14 Spit would be my choice as there are no large Griffon Spits about and they are sadly lacking in any scale.. But for the US market perhaps an A1 SkyraIder, though the thought of a Grumman Duck would tickle my fancy.
  3. It's not them paying it, it is the parents Myself, I would as in all of these cases have a law where anyone causing damage like this would when they reach working age have a percentage of their wages ( and that would include benefits ) deducted at source by a court order until full reparation had been fulfilled to whom ever it be, the aggrieved or the insurance company that has paid out. Maybe then they will realise that their actions have long reaching consequences that they will be unable to sweep behind them.

  5. Sentencing has been handed down, rather lackluster too https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-49397838
  6. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-47705912 What3words How clever is that, it uses three words to pinpoint your exact location down to a 3 metre box, so if you are lost, arranging to meet someone, or have a crash etc, it can tell the emergency services exactly where you are with three words.
  7. Just thought I would mention the sacru as you were worried about doing it, see https://www.shapeways.com/product/VPKD5ZZEF/westland-wessex-sacru-cargo-hook-1-32?optionId=64938906&li=marketplace
  8. You see even the disadvantages in being in hospital has its advantages.... Get sorted soon mate.
  9. https://www.pprune.org/rotorheads/80602-anyone-flown-wessex-9.html the Falklands ones here also appear to have the asbestos wrap on the exhausts that we had on a couple of cabs in NI.
  10. Just seen this , superb, one thing for future reference, the door armour also had an external plate below the lower windscrens. the complete fit was two plates mounted internally in the nose door to protect the fuel computers and some plates under the bottom of the pilots seat, and SLR was often carried in clips mounted in the cabin below the pilots seats, and an SMG ( Stirling) could be carried in brackets mounted on the left hand pilots forward door post. So long ago and another time in my life...... Best completed model of the Walter I have seen in a long time.

  13. After the losses incurred by members on here, it is nice to see something coming out of the rubble and loss https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/offbeat/in-a-tiny-california-town-ravaged-by-fire-a-muralist-finds-a-calling-—-and-notoriety/ar-AADbWhL
