Re: Yellow Aircraft Spitfire Mk FR xiv

Stunning!
I'm not sure, but I think it was stored at Biggin for a while (just up the road for me). I often see the Spits flying over this time of year, but would love to see (and hear) later mk fly over the garden. Truly a beautiful build.

Re: Fun stuff goes here.

I was in the restaurant yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my farts with the beat of the music. After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my coffee, and noticed that everybody was staring at me.... Then I...

Re: It is a truth universal...

Number plates of 7 digits can identify every car, van, bus etc. that has ever been on UK roads. I thought last year's number was hard enough to hide on my scale jobs, as it has to be accessible without the use of tools.

Perhaps I'll try banner towing with my new registration number!

Re: Kalt 22 cc anyone recommend a Sport biplane for this?

Jabbawock, https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/ja ... cba1185463

I've built 2 larger ones (giant jabbawock). Great fun. The larger ones had zenoah 38 power, but a 22 would be great in the original size.
