Even a Blackburn Blackburn?  :-\
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! :)

Sure.  Just park them at the edge of the field and you'll never know they're there. :wacko:

By Don Williams‎ found on the "DesTROYer's Models" page.

"Trans Am Van almost done and dusted just debating whether or not to put Pontiac badge shape side windows on the sides or not .........."



He says he ain't done yet so I waited around for an update but this was 25 July and nothing since so I figured I'd go ahead and post what he has now.

By Kyaw Swar found on the "Tamiya Model Magazine" page.

"Bronco 1/72 from Academy. It's an old kit. I stuck whatever decals that I can save. So if you are looking for accuracy you won't find any here. If you guys are looking to build one, I'd recommend going for kitty hawk 1/32 kit."

Panel van is excellent.

Why are the locomotives called U-Boats?

That van IS good, yes.  :thumbsup:

General Electric's road switcher locos were entitled their 'Universal Series', the first one being the U25B produced in 1959. Since then the railfans have always called GE road switchers 'U Boats'.

They're universal because they can be built to suit a number of different track gauges, and even loading gauges, and still use the same underframes and prime movers etc.

The BR 219 (even though operated by GDR and later FRG railroad, these were designed and manufactured in Bulgaria) received their "U-Boot" nickname because of the round side windows, adding a certain maritime flavor, and the fact that it "frequently dived away from service into maintenance". In its early days, 50% of the locomotives were in the workshops at any one time!
