Can you fill us in on the history of the type?  It looks like a Hunter with funny wig tips & nose.

Sales of Airfix kits plummeted in the 1980s, and GCSEs had to be made easier as a result - James May

Nev, its the Hawker P1083 which (I think) was a supersonic development of the Hunter with new wings.  I lengthened the nose to accommodate radar for blue jay missiles.  Wooksta probably has more info about it to hand.

Looks like a 'big wing' Hunter ! Pretty cool !

And the Brewery is being closed ? What ? Maybe it's true, all this talk I hear of the UK selling out......are they owned ( as is all brewing ) by Interbrew ? The Nazi's of beer ?

Man, what a tavesty......are they moving the brewery ? Or are they going to brew it cheaper in the third world ?

Who's next, Bass ?

CANADA KICKS arse !!!!
