Hirohito's Revenge

Proof that, with enough power, even a brick can fly.

Don't know any ramp rat who enjoys the sounds of that thing taxying in, because if it needs fuel it's an exercise in frustration. Too much in one tip-tank and the other goes so high you can't reach it, so you have to go from one to the other repeatedly.

Apart from my personal feelings, born of experience, nice job!

You'd think after awhile they'd rig up an arm or something with padding on it to keep from scuffing the paint and attach it to a truck and just park it by one wing so the arm could hold it down.  :o ;D

Maybe the next one will get folding wings - folding down for easy fuelling...

"V-FRED"  ;)

Maybe there's a Vegemite Emergency Distribution chopper waiting to be made?

A vegebomber?
Maybe a cargo plane modelled in flight with crewmen rolling drums of the stuff out the ramp?

Thanks folks.

Nice one mate  :thumbsup:

However shouldn't "checks" read "cheques" ?  ;)

Yes.  Wikipedia's fault as it's just a straight cut & paste.  My responsibility for not chequeing the spelling.   ;D



The authorities have agreed to take that in mitigation at any subsequent hearing  :angel:

I think you'll find that "I was only quoting Wikipedia" was ruled an inadmissible defense at Nuremberg in 1945.

Having tasted Vegemite once, surely a weaponised version is banned under some convention or another ?

I'm now wondering if they make a jar small enough to use with a 1/72 model?

Sorry, but I did have an Aussie girl friend when Croydon, especially the Blacksmiths, was the Earls Court overspill and I she loved it  :o Lets just say it came between us on the odd occasion  :angel:

Crikey! Vegemite is awesome.  ;D

I had it once - it was actually on the menu in a small delicatessen in south Maine, of all places.  Whilst it was 'good' (better than 'OK', not as good as 'fantastic'), I found myself wishing it were Marmite.  No insult intended - I know they're chemically similar, from the same basic origins, and all that.  I just has me preferences, as my dad says.  :) 

A barrel - Imperial, of course -  of Vegemite/Marmite ... now, that's an idea!  The Mother of all 'mites ...

And my mind has just jumped to a very weird place - a place with a quick-response rescue vehicle loaded with brandy & other essential spirits, champers & fine vintages, chocolates, cheeses, all the 'mites (I understand there are at least 4 varieties), and other durable edibles (nothing that could spoil, like shrimp/salmon/seafood, or fruit).  It'd have to have an amazing suspension - the booze is heavy stuff, and doesn't want shaking about - so a large van-like vehicle with Rolls Royce-like suspension - Ooh!  a conversion of a Roller into a delivery van!  Custom-coachwork, of course - need a premium company for that. 

Hmmm - can one buy a model of a vintage Rolls Royce?

Sadly, this is not a model I am capable of making.  For whatever reason I cannot do civilian vehicles, I always muck them up and have to morph them into military ones.  Still - anyone can take this idea and give it a run.  :)

I'm the same: love Marmite (though I rarely have it nowadays: too much salt) but when I've tried Vegemite I've found it has a more explicitly yeasty/pastey flavour that I'm not keen on. All a matter of what you're used to, I suppose.

You could do a classic warbird sponsored by Marmite, but it would have to be something that people either love or hate*  ;D  F-4 Phantom? A-10 Warthog? F-104 Starfighter?



*For non-Brits/Aussies: Marmite's advertising has long embraced the idea that people either love it or hate it with very few being neutral about it.

You forgot the Jaffa Cakes.....  ;D

This may work better than the Roller van, it's featured in this month's Classic and Sports Car magazine, and it's owned by Lord Bamford, him of JCB fame.



I don't know about 'vintage', but I have a 1/24 kit of a 1960s RR Silver Cloud. One day I'm going to put a GMC 6-71 blower through the hood and big mags on the back with a Ford beam front axle too.  ;D ;)

One can only hope... does it show that I prefer Marmite myself?

I'm surprised that RR haven't taken Lord Bamford to task yet... "Now look here, Old Boy - it's just not the done thing, you know."

Rolls Royce now isn't the same Rolls Royce company as it was when the Shadow was built though.

The 'Pick Up', which is what it says on the tailgate  ;D, was originally converted by someone in Arkansas is the USA, and then imported back here some years later when Lord Bamford saw it and liked the idea, then had it properly fettled by Clark & Carter in true UK 'bespoke body' fashion.

Actually, having thought a bit more about it, isn't Vegemite in it's base state weaponised anyway?

Surprised there's been this many posts on the flavour of marmite and yet nobody has brought up the official snack of this web site:

There are a surprising number of Rolls Royce and Bently utes.

This one was, IIRC, used to carry sails for the owners ocean going yachts and was on display at the Birdwood Motor Museum in South Australia (well worth a visit).














However, IMO this tops the lot of them - a Royce Sedan Delivery.
