Its like a Sea Harier and a Cranberry got drunk one night and stumbled back to the bedroom.....

Looks suitably British :thumbsup:

Great model!  Love the idea, Canberra on a carrier, it fit on CVA-01 nicely. :thumbsup:

I just had a religious experience.  :bow: :thumbsup: :cheers:

The absinth tends to have that effect.... :wacko:
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.
