Neat thing about the Thud is that the car parked behind it makes you realise how big it is.

I hadn't noticed it but now you mention it, it is on the large size. Pass as a medium sized family home over here  ;D

Mind you they could all just be models and someone's screwed the scales up ?  ;) :angel:

The current garage I have is 30ft x 36ft and has a 10ft high roll up door----  ;D

My first car I bought when I came to Canada was a 1970 Chrysler Newport, it's overall measurements were bigger than our old living room/dining room which took up the back half of our old house in England. The front half was the kitchen/small washroom/hallway, upstairs was three bedrooms and the bathroom and that included the stairway from the ground floor.

If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

Cheers guys. It was truly an honour to pay my respects to those who died for us. It was also great to see other people there.

Driving across the country again, but this time in a pickup truck. A little easier to be a tourist that way. Couldn't resist popping in here. I knew it was closed, but I walked around the back to see her and the gate was open !

Fancy anyone just leaving a Vulcan lying around like that, I'm surprised you didn't hook up the conveniently attached tow-bar and haul her away!  ;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! :)
