You must feel the Zen in PSR...


All I feel is the pain, and the dust!
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! :)

^ As one of my sports teachers said:"Where there's pain, there's life!"  ;)

Thinking about it now, that's way deeper than I gave it credit for back then.  ;D

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Stumbled upon this, err, colorful (but not unsexy) ebay offering - from Germany, but, strangely, posted in UK:

Obviously camouflaged for an estuarine tidal delta region with grey-white sand & mangroves.

So, either a very limited operating area; or operating on a completely different planet; or in a different space-time continuumumum.

I never knew Matchbox did a 1/72 Avro Vulcan kit, or is it the Airfix kit?

Not so much a What If as a What The FFFF?



I'm almost tempted to buy this just to get it into our world. Next time you fly on a four-engined 757 and the pilot cuts the power and does a dead-stick landing at 200+mph, you'll know which model somebody bought him as a kid...
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

I like "SPECIFICATIONS COLOURS AND CONTENTS MAY VARY FROM ILLUSTRATIONS". Given the state of the artwork, you'd probably open it up to find that it's a British Racing Green Ferrari submersible T-72 tank...

Shame that the (noble) lady seller doesn't include a photo of the content. Maybe we could raise funds to buy it, just to see..... :banghead:
