...... and an Italeri Piasecki H-21 gunship (no idea but zenrat industries have no choppers yet).


Ooooh, BAGS if Whiffability there! Turboshafts? MUCH bigger rotors? Ramp at the back now the socking great radial isn't in the middle any more?

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I like the idea of radial engines.  Two to be precise, in pods like on a CH-37.
But we'll see.

Define cold ?

Well, it could be warmer......roll shirt sleeves down

A bit chilly.....need a sweater

cold...where's my fleece

very cold...I'm sure I had a scarf somewhere

downright perishing......ice floes forming in your beer

rrrrridiculous....sling more logs in the woodburner and stay indoors

Absolute Zero......Geordie lasses in the Bigg Market on a Saturday night start wearing cardigans.

It's all relative guys.  Frikkin cold = 10C.  That's almost in single figures!

Sorry, but no, I refuse to.  I hate being cold.  It makes me depressed.  Why people get excited about winter I have no idea.

Saturday I found in a charity shop, a 1/72nd scale Hasegawa Mig-25, and an airfix shorts skyvan. got both for 3 quid each. Already have both in the stash so, the skyvan could get made longer, with bigger wings and engines too, The Mig, could be a real world project, but for the cartel, and be a very fast wild weasel version carrying KH-31 missiles, instead of the 4 R-40's. Camo paint scheme s per my Mig-31 Strike hound.

I just received a Special Hobby 1/72 FMA IA-58A Pucara "Falkland War" after finding it online for quite cheap. It will be built RW as I've always had a soft spot for the FAA Pucaras in their wartime camo and, of course, it's the 35th anniversary this year. Ages ago I had the Airfix boxing but sold it as it was too daunting: I feel up to it now.
