Re: Last front page update from me.

Hi Dave, just to add my bit, a big well done mate, you have turned the web site into an exciting and interesting place to visit, there were many moans and groans when the original Forum was replaced but what a difference now!

Re: Tony Nijhuis Vampire Build

Hi Guys, little tip that may be of use to you, instead of putting lead in the front, use batteries which can power your lights, if you are putting them on, you can also get different sized gel-cell which are a good source of weight, then you are making use of the dead weight.

HTH, Vince.

Re: P38 pilot Charles E Moran.

Hi Mike, might be nice if you could post a photo of this fantastic piece of kit you have bought. I also have quite a few old pilots goggles and RAF goggles, your very lucky that you have a name on them, a great start to what could be an interesting story. Please keep us up to date with this one.
