on the bench:

-all kinds of things.


OUTSTANDING!  Thanks for sharing with us!



Nice one Nils  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I like the Airbus A400M photos and now that it's flying, what's the news about it ?? Since I didn't re-new my Combat Aircraft subscription I've lost touch with what's going on.

Nils.....some great pics there  :thumbsup: thanks for sharing....some interesting colour schemes as well...the Apache looks....different....saw both the smart cars at Biggin Hill.....I'm sure I read somewhere that it was possible to get the transfers/stickers or whatever they are for your own car ...a limited amount available...not 100% possitive 'bout this though.... 


Captain Canada

Nice work, Nils ! Love that shot of the A400, and the lumpy Blackhawk. Thanks !

CANADA KICKS arse !!!!

Long Live the Commonwealth !!!
Vive les Canadiens !
Where's my beer ?



You must have gone on Saturday, CAVU the whole day! I went on Sunday and it wasn't good, low level clag for most of the day and only cleared up a bit right at the end.

The BoB Smart cars got LOTS of attention. Note the Messersmart has bullet holes where the Spitsmart doesn't....  -_-

I'll post some of my pics in a day or so, but in the meanwhile......
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

Mmm, there seems to be something wrong with that picture.  Can't quite figure it out though.... ;)

It's like that old Sesame Street song, "Guess which one is not like the others..."

Super stuff Nils.  :thumbsup:

I'll have to get myself down to RIAT again soon. Haven't been the last 3 years.


I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
