 They don't know there's a much nicer alternative from Airfix.


Well there was anyway, not any more sad to say.  :banghead:

It took me ages to find a 'matched pair' PR9 and B(I)8 recently, and then only thanks to Richard from the Coventry club.
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! :)

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

 :o Guys, no need to argue... some think Hase's prices a bit too high and others disagree but prices won't change.
IMHO, even though i find their prices steep, i also think that a lot of them really are the best/only options available so, in the end, i guess quality and choice end up justifying prices.
We all know that if you're not in Japan, prices will always be higher and will vary depending on where you're buying and on how greedy are the middlemen distributing them but, it's always up to us to decide if it's worth what's being asked for it, isn't it so?
To each his own...

Changing the subject, i haven't done any modelling at all for a few days, the heat's got me jumping around into pools... :wacko:

Awesome! Good to hear after all the stressful malarkey and heat at work!! 

Man you have balls of steel. I wouldn't even ramp off a 2X4 stacked on a cinder block.

Thanks, bro! :thumbsup:
Re balls of steel, i wish i had them, specially when my feet slipped off the pedals on landings... :o ;D
I believe anyone can do it if they start at a young age so i think you'd be as crazy as the rest of us if you'd done it since your teens like i did. :thumbsup:
Jumping is something i love to do, the feeling is just pure freedom, i don't do it more often as i used to cause i have too many responsibilities and i cant risk being seriously hurt anymore...  but that's life, i guess... :banghead:

It's hell getting old.  :rolleyes: ;D  But... you are smart enough to realize when to dial it back.

One time I was riding my bike and.... we had a piece of wood stacked on a block.  ;D ;D ;D   Speaking of foot slipping off pedal.... I can relate.... ! .. I hit the stupid ramp and pretty much flew off the bike.... my foot came off the left pedal. I recovered, though..... so.. my brother tells me it looks like I just did some BADASS stunt, like when you fly through the air and kick the bike to one side then get back on it...    meanwhile all I can think is I'm not doing this any more.  ;D   I didn't plan all that! It may have looked cool but scared the crap out of me.. I don't want no more of that action.  :unsure: ;D

 ;D The first scare is always eye-opening to the danger.

Well, finally got something done, finished the F-35's nozzle and glued the stabs and tails in place.

NOW we're talking. It's starting to look like a proper aeroplane!!! 

Coincidentally, I saw some documentary or report thing on youtube a couple hours ago about the F-35.... man... this thing ripped the whole idea and program all to hell. It was NOT favorable to the Lightning II.  It was a legit report type thing.. not some youtube nutter or anything like that...but man, they didn't give a solid minute to the "opposition."  The entire thing was 100% comprised of detractors and naysayers. While there may be truth in there, it's hard to take, as a whole, a piece of reporting that doesn't give equal, or ANY, time to the other half of the debate. Next time I fire up the youtube I'll try to find it again and let you know what it's called. Curious what you might think about it.

What's the name? Is it the Fith Estate? There are a few early ones that were really putting it down... :banghead:

I'll check it out today. Not sure if it even had the proper name associated with it. I see a lot of documentaries on there with a name other than what it was released as.

Well, fact is it's over budget and late but i believe it will end up being the machine it's supposed to be.
I like the design anyway so even if its not that great, i'll still like it. :thumbsup:

An over budget gov't program... what else is new!!!!   ;D ;D ;D

I was just a bit taken aback by the report. I mean....  they didn't really try to get the other side of the story. One sided affair.

Just thought it interesting..  Now on with the show!!! Still looking for one of my own... still no luck but the hunt is half the fun.  :mellow: :mellow: :mellow:
