19th? Pretty good, only 6 more to go to get REALLY serious.  ;D ;)
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! :)

Thank you all Gents, both from Mrs SP and myself  :thumbsup:
 :o  6 more Kit, id be utterly disingenuous if I said we plan for that few  :thumbsup:   I cant , and wont say that every minute has been perfect, but the perfect is far more important, and worth anything else  :wub:

but a wonderful day  ;D

well there's a surprise

finished the Challenger 2  ive definitely been spoiled by Tamiya build quality, it didn't fight as much as the conquer, but it didn't feel as much fun as the Chieftain.

Open day at the cemetery? That sounds just... wrong.  :-X :wacko:

I know what you mean but there are quite a few now unused Victorian cemeteries in London that have organised tours for tourists, Highgate and Karl Marx's grave for one.

If you ever get the chance take the tour of West Norwood Cemetery, organised by the Friends of WNC. It has catacombs with coffins underground and some amazing stonework (Weeping Angels galore!).
Lots of famous Victorians buried there such as Doulton (pottery), Greathead (tunnel digger), Bessemer (steel), Alcock (cricketer), Tate (sugar and art), Reuter (news)

I know West Norwood Cemetery quite well, or did so, as it's only a few miles away and was very handy for the bus garage when taking a certain young lady home and waiting for a 2b  :angel:

Beckenham has organised tours as well Nick. I just find them depressing even given my love of history. Just so shabby, or appear to me to be anyway. There are quite a few large Victorian cemeteries around here, one was even built with it's own dedicated railway line down from Central London  :-X

so the TSR-2 anti satellite  bird has been repaired, after taking a tumble and losing one drop tank and both tail planes
and im reassembling Mrs SPs 28mm scale stage coach, which suffered a similar problem  :thumbsup:  that one is superglued up well and setting, ill have to add a couple of passengers back into the body of the coach later   <_<

thank you Narses..
to be honest I rather agree with that statement, it in no way feels like that long  :thumbsup:   so I figure we both must be doing something right
