Rad you can use the icon at the top of the posts that looks like a globe to link directly to Photobucket or other similar photo hosting sites.

Next time we are at the same show I'll bring my notebook and show you how.

No-one has that option any more Terry, the pics took up too much space on the server and we've been uisng the alternative method that Chris mentions for a long time now.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I haven't really thought about it much but I guess I'm something of a Reform Luddite, myself. ;)

And I have never thought that "change for change's sake" is a good thing, change should profit (personally, culturally, socially, economically) the many & enhance existence, not diminish it.

Exactly!  :thumbsup:

So many people, 'business' people especially, seem to think that continous change is a good thing, if only because '....it keeps the staff on their toes'. In reality it tees's people off no end, costs a small fortune, THEIR fortune if they thought about it properly, and results in hours, days, weeks and months of waisted time.

As one of us on here said a little while ago, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Higher officialdom seems to think "If it ain't broke, fix it until it is then blame the original design for the failure".  :banghead:

Decals on the Buzzard III....it's Irish Air Corps.
It'll be flat varnished in about 25 minutes after I've played a bit with a silver pencil. Then add wheels and prop with new engine front.
The base is ready. :thumbsup:
