Rare as hen's teeth these days. well found.  :thumbsup:

That's the same conversion as I used for my Hunter T12, along with a few others as well.
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! :)

Oh I know its rare Kit, which is why without a spare or clone I am not going to touch it.

No need to talk to OGL as TSRJoe says he can help me out with the P1101.

Would that fellow not far from Prestwick also happen to be the same one that has had in the past some trainer canopies for TSR2?

Could be, could be.  ;)

And if he hasn't any canopies for the P.1101, I still have the resin positive mould he sent with my canopies.....

As it happens the Maintrack P.1101 conversion kit came with a positive mould, I just don't have any material or confidence to produce a spare or two

Last night I managed to get hold of a currant Kerbal Space Program Demo, I am now one happy camper as I CAN be a rocket scientist  ;D

Ok, seriously, I have enjoyed videos by various people, mainly Scott Manley, about things they have done and how to do things using this game that getting a usable and up to date version is really good even if I have to start from scratch and work my way through everything one build at a time.

It's not sapping my Mojo, the fact that I have to paint the cockpits is doing that. KSP is merely a distraction and a lot of fun to play. You can get to make explosions as well  ;D

Another distraction arrived today.

Say hello to the newest addition to the family, my grand niece Lucie



According to her dad both she and her mum are doing fine. I expect to see them both around the end of the week.

She weighed in at 10lb 31/2oz and my niece is not the tallest of women, my girlfriend is now having to knit to a bigger size than she expected  :blink:

Some things have been moving fast. Early Tuesday evening I got a phone call asking if I might be interested in a job which as far as I can see sends me half way to Holland from where I am. Anyway, after a few phone calls back and forth I have an interview tomorrow afternoon  :blink: very short period of time from knowing about the job. Well that's not exactly true, I have seen the job advertised but felt I was not the person to do the job, however without going to the company I would not find out.
Going to travel the long route to this company, in Dalgety Bay, which entails travelling north over the Forth Road bridge so I can see how they are getting on with the countries two new Aircraft carriers.
