I've had a look for my thread, it seems I didn't post one here. It must be on The Airfix Tribute Forum site then. The kit has a major problem with the wing and the engine nacelles, my thread was mostly about how I went about fixing it before PhotoBucket did it's ransom demand. All the photos have disappeared from the thread and I don't go there anymore because of the tapatalk sh!t that is there.

It makes me so greatly relieved that I discovered the friendly, supportive community that is Whiffworld.    I do occasionally frequent other forums (or should that be forae,  or even fora: it's 53 years since I did O level Latin, and one forgets these things) but I always return from the backbiting, bitching, browbeating and sundry other unpleasantness to the tranquillity of this site.

Thank you  all  for your efforts in keeping Whiffworld a calm environment where the only dangers are wild anachronisms, untameable imaginations and the occasional soaring paradox.    Give yourselves a pat on the back!!!

Well said!  :thumbsup:

The very fact that we, by definition, 'think outside the model box' to use current phraseology, makes us so more tolerant of others wild ideas I reckon.

And so we should! How can you expect someone else to be appreciative of your insanely insidious idea if you're not appreciative of his crazily counter-intuitive concept? :unsure:

Was in bed shortly after, but that's early compared to the last week, when it's been more like 0400hrs (I'm on leave, so no day shifts). However, I'm a night-owl & find I do my best work after everyone else is in bed.

Such a peaceful time of night. I'm the same, really. If it weren't for work I'd keep my winter time schedule all year.

Once I got out of my partying years I've always been in bed early, around 10:00pm and up and about early, 6:00am now, but 4:00am  when I was working. Into the office early and get some work done before the phones started ringing, staff started arriving and I had to do some managing  :-X Saturday nights are different, but that's it now.

Not really a whif, just close formation - but I thought Tophe might like it. :)

Like it? He'll LOVE it!  :wub:

Apart from the twin 30 mms of course.
