Hello: 

I couldn't figure out how to upload a photo so I'll just say hi. When I'm not working on a model I'm an acquisitions editor in publishing (I created the Stackpole Military History Series). I'm also an author (mostly fantasy).

 

Cheers,

Welcome aboard! :hi:

 

Posting photos is possible via an upload service where you store the image. When you are writing a new post there is a box at the lower right where you can set the link for the image.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

When Vera came over in 2014 she did indeed met up with Thumper but after, Vera was 'station' at the former airfield at Kirmington (166 Squadron) better known as Humberside International. Both aircraft flew together on a number of occasions and I was lucky enough to have been able to get to the many locations around Lincolnshire when they did including the occasion when they flew around Lincoln Cathedral with that other AVRO Icon, the Vulcan bomber.

How I would love to weather a 1:1 Lancaster with my own choice of squadron marking etc.

I personally think that NX611 'Just Jane' should change her ID on a more frequent basis to represent a few more aircraft  . . .

 

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome

best regards

Ian

I just saw a student play a gig. He did a fine job. As did the rest of the band. There is still a live scene for original music here in Sydney. Hopefully it will reclaim a somewhat normal niche.

 

I feel lucky to be able to play at all compared to so many other places. I hope soon we can all view it in our rear view mirrors.

The wife insists on buying pyjamas for Christmas Eve presents. Every year. I've got cupboards bursting with bloody Christmas themed pyjamas, but she won't stop.

 

Unfortunately, I'm the camel toothed old bloke on the right. My son is doing his best elf impression.

 

I can't wait to see what the next Christmas brings......

I managed twice,  Shuttleworth and Gransden.  Wonderful sight and sound.

Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum was doing that for a few years. They would change the nose art and codes on the port side (that's predominantly where nose art was done during wartime) to represent other significant RCAF Lancasters.

 

First was "Ropey", VR-R of 419 Squadron in 2014:

In 2015 they did "X-Terminator", VR-X from 419 Squadron:

And the last one was in 2016, "Lady Orchid" WL-O from 434 Squadron:

Hopefully they will continue the tradition once things open up again safely.
