Yes.  Some kids can generate sound of a frequency that just drills right through one's skull.

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

There's a trailer currently running on the Beeb where a certain actress screams with a voice that should be banned under the Geneva Convention  :angry:

She's in the only t.v. soap that my old mum was addicted to and when it was on I had to leave the room and I've not done that for any other programme on the box.

Bianca in Eastenders?  I'd rather slit my wrists than watch it, even if I did have a telly.

That's the one and when the trailer comes on I mute the t.v.

Right then, thatís enough Klingon stuff and bl**dy Eastenders nonsense.

Up in Manchester again for a few days, modelling stuff with me (again) to help pass the time when mum has her daytime naps!  In and around the builds for the prototypes GB Iíve done a little more on a FROG Barracuda and thereís a Matchbox Hellcat to progress too.

Not much chance of modelling at the mo. Since binning work I have spent more time in Manchester supporting ailing mum than being at home.  Needs must, can't not do that sort of thing, can you, especially if things are only going in one direction.  Basically have been home 3 days in the last four weeks.  Like I say, needs must and am not complaining.

On a lighter note, lots of de Havilland stuff in the new edition of Aeroplane magazine.  There's also a profile of one of my favourite jets, the SAAB Viggen.

Nice photo spread of airliners at Croydon Airport in the 1930s.  Pretty certain I spotted NARSES2 in the background of one of them.

Well done, looking after your mum.   Been there, done that, got the mental scars.

Yup well done with your mum mate, you only get the one. I unfortunately had to see mine through when I was in my mid 40's. Had to balance work and mum, but lucky enough work were extremely understanding and then I suddenly discovered I had a far larger family then I thought. Complicated but  :thumbsup:

Nah, not me. ;D Might of been my dad though. He quite often used to reminisce about going down and peering over the fence at them. Family didn't live that far away from the airport at all.
