Yeah, the views even on boring back roads out there are awesome.  Hardly need to go to the parks.

Cool shots of the A-6 and F-11!

The RAF Centenary Group Build / Re: Boeing 747 for the RAF .....
« Last post by Knightflyer on Today at 06:52:30 am »

Well 'Empire' is definitely where I'm heading, but an Empire where using a Boeing is still 'buying British' ..... think something similar to 'The Two Georges'


 :thumbsup:


I prefer to seal the edges of the tape with a light coating of a clear varnish applied with a brush,

Yup. I use this method at times as well. The key words are "light coating". Guess how I know ?  :rolleyes:

Unfortunately for me the terms "heavy-handed" and "applied by Knightflyer" tend to be  synonymous - Guess how I know!  :rolleyes: :banghead:

I think the RAF tended to have themes at various times, viz the WWII bombers tended to be named after towns or cities. But then they got sidetracked with the V bombers, even though the Canberra followed the city theme.

Some manufacturers had themes too, Hawker's winds of course, but others seemed to be random.

This being WHiffWorld you can make up your own theme, and alliteration is always a good start.  :thumbsup:

The young of today have almost universally adopted the American single-fingered salute.   :banghead:

Absolutely no sense  of class/style, and it is all over the planet.  :banghead: :banghead:

Whenever my kids give me their single-fingered salute I reply with my two fingered one and state, "I've got twice as any fingers as you!" With a laugh.  They scowl and slink away, knowing they've been bettered.  ;)

Must admit on the rare occasions nowadays that I need it I tend to use the other common hand gesture  ;)
