I look forward to the MiG-26, saves faffing around with conversion sets to make that particular version.

The Mig-25 is just a re-boxing of the ICM kit, which may possibly be already out, the advantage of the Revell boxing should be the quality of the decals and stencils.

They are playing it a bit safe this year.

Very understandable given they need to settle down as the "New" company before perhaps getting a little more adventurous ?

The An 225 for december is a platinum edition swith electronics/lights but it is being released later in the year a lot cheaper without the 'lecky bits.

Are you sure? I checked the Revell website and the instruction manual for the kit, neither say anything about electrics being included.

Well, there's a big chunk of my money guaranteed to be missing.  Like I'm not going to get this... I have the Ruslan already, it's just natural.



Here's the dumbest question ever, because I recently heard it a different way on a TV show, but how is "Revell" pronounced? Like "bevel" or like "Chevelle?"

I will continue to rhyme it with "bevel" notwithstanding any information to the contrary because I'm English. We may mispronounce other people's languages, but at least we mispronounce them definitively: where discrepancies are apparent, it's always the native speaker who's got it wrong. :thumbsup:

Absolutely!  That's why 'San Juan' will always be "San Joo-an'.  :)  And that valley in CA will always be, to me, "San Joe-ah-quin'.  :)

We do it the other way round in England.

My office used to be in Cirencester, pronounced in England as 'sirensester', but our American office guys, trying to second guess our crazy language, always called it 'Sirenster'.  ;D ;)

I love hearing at Americans say "Worcestershire". ;D

In Australia (& I'm pretty sure in the UK) that is pronounced "Wooster-sheer", while most Americans seem to pronounce it "War-sester-shire".

Meh, it amuses me in some strange way. I don't know why.


Actually, here in Adelaide we have two places not even other Australians get right;

Gepps Cross - is not pronounced with the hard "G" but, rather, the soft "J' sound = Jepps Cross

Thebarton - is not The  Barton, it starts with the "th" sound at the beginning of "thing" = Theb-ar-ton

Oh, I forgot! All the names starting with the local Aboriginal "Para" (river/stream/creek) are pronounced as in "parachute", not Pah-ra.


Interesting thing that Terry Pratchett once noted in one of the Disc World books, we have near/in Adelaide a "Little Para River", "North Para River" & South Para River", so in translation "Little River River", "North River River" & "South River River".

I recall from a British TV show once that there is a place in England that's name is derived from 3 forms (Celtic, Saxon, English) of the word "ford" (as in a place where it is safe to cross a river).

Anyone care to guess how Wildboarclough in the Peak District is supposed to be pronounced?  :wacko:


I must have been in my late teens/early 20s before I twigged that Arkansas, which is obviously pronounced 'ar-kan-sass' (because it's related to Kansas in some way, right?), was the same place that Americans were talking about when they said 'Ark-an-saw'... :rolleyes:

There's also Torpenhow not far from Carlisle that translates  as HILL  HILL  HILL.  Tor  Pen  How in the same way Celtic   Early  celtic and Norse.......................and it's pronounced Trapenna

"Wilber- Claw"? ?   Would be my guess.   "Arkansas" is funny.. I used to ridicule the name until I learned that it has something to do with French so it made more sense all of a sudden.  ;D Been there many times, some parts are really nice!

We have it BAD here in Oklahoma. There are TONS of names of places around here that are American Indian... lots of places named for Natives; everything from shops, stores, road names, actual rezzes, towns and cities, you name it and you can always tell when a new news reporter from out of state moves in.

The Australian place names that often trip up our cousins are the ones derived from Indigenous place names.  Perhaps the best example I know of is "Wagga-Wagga", in New South Wales.  No, it isn't pronounced as it is spelt, it is pronounced "Wogga- Wogga".   In many Indigenous languages, when you repeat the word your emphasising it.  In this case it is a "place of many crows".   In my mispent youth, I was on bus from Adelaide to Canberra and sitting behind an older, American couple.  As we approached Wagga-Wagga,  I heard this voice saying, "Oh, look, darling, we're coming to Wagga-Wagga."  It broke me up.   Downunder we tend to shorten words and Wagga-Wagga is generally known simply as "Wogga" to the natives.   ;D
