In their quasi-English instructions period Tamiya frequently used the word 'vis' and no-one had a CLUE what it meant. Luckily one of my fellow students when I was doing my HND was Japanese and he told me it meant 'screw' or 'bolt', which helped make sense eventually.

Vis is also the French word for screw...

Ahah, I didn't know that, thanks Harro.  :thumbsup:
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! :)
