Good day and evening at Arundel yesterday. Weather was quite nice but the cricket ended early because of a bad accident on the field. Two Surrey players collided whilst both running to take a high ball. Both were watching the ball and didn't see each other. The resulting crash was rather ugly and both were knocked out. They were on the ground for about an hour and we ended up with 3 ambulances on the field. One player had multiple facial cuts and blood loss whilst the other broke his jaw in 3 places. Once they had been taken to hospital the game was abandoned as the Surrey players didn't want to play on having see their team mates so badly hurt. The crowd fully understood and there was not a murmur of dissent rather just a round of applause as the ambulances left.

Still meant we made the Red Lion in time for the football, then had a curry an finally made the Black Rabbit about a mile up stream from Arundel. That was and interesting walk back to town at the end of the evening.  :cheers:

That incident made the Beeb News this morning. I was expecting to see some vid of ambulances etc. and I was going to play 'Spot Chris', but it didn't happen.  ;D

Blimey! Might have to start watching some games. I thought the worst thing to happen during a match was some spilt tea....then again, didn't an Australian die recently from a blow to the head?

Watched the LeMans....I thought nothing could look better than a Porsche 917 but those 919s are gorgeous.

WHAT?  :o

Apart from the head on view I reckon every one of the current LMP1 cars are as ugly as sin! Bring back Group C I say.

Yes.  Phil Hughes in November last year.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Yes tragic and just shows cricket has the capacity to be a dangerous game. Mind you it always amuses every body in the ground (players, umpires, crowd) when a batsman gets hit in the goolies  :blink: Even his partner normally struggles to stop smirking when he commiserates ! I suppose everyone is going thank goodness it wasn't me  :rolleyes:

That happened to me twice in the same over when I played cricket at school. The bowler didn't manage it a third time, but that might have had something to do with the fact that I'd walked down the pitch and smacked him one with my bat! For some reason the umpire sent me off..........  :wacko:

Every sport where there are objects whirling around is dangerous ! Or any human movement really...when one considers that the human skull and it's defence mechanisms are only good for somat like 15 km/h. And then folk wonder why head injuries ( namely concussion ) are so prominent in sport these days.

As an aside, you should have seen the injuries at hockey games, at all levels of competition, to spectators, before the netting was installed around the ice surface !

You mean they played it without nets ?  :blink: :banghead:

Anyway I got the I-16 matted today plus some more work on the Invader and Do 17. The I-16 is almost there. Hopefully more tomorrow then a break for a couple of days

Yes, up until some young girl got beaned in the head and killed  --- then they came up with nets around the end zones.

Flipping Ada, never knew that. I'd just assumed nets were so obvious that they'd always been there

More progress on all 4 current progress.

The Do 17 can now have her wings fitted as the interior is finished, admittedly after a minor hiatus. I ignored my own advice and jumped a stage and fitted the wing spars. his meant that I couldn't get the final cockpit part in  :banghead: Still liquid poly applied to the join meant I could get the front one out, part in and spar put back. However when it comes to the interior of this kit do what I say not what I do  :banghead: :follow the construction stages.

The interior is very busy and very crowded but shows you just how awkward to moving around in the real thing must have been, especially when under attack. It goes together very well though, as long as you follow the instructions  ;D ;D

All this talk makes me want to build a German twin....Maybe even a Do-17 ;-) And I'll see if I can heed your advice !

I now have what actually looks like a Do 17 on the bench  :thumbsup:

All the sub assemblies started to come together yesterday and most are just a push fit and 2 didn't even need glue. Had one moment when I couldn't get the exhaust assembly to fit to the wing mount. It fitted perfectly once I turned it upside down  :banghead: I was not looking at the assembly diagram properly  ;D
