    The windows were open and the wind blew them over so they had their lights knocked out too.

    Looks like the aftermath of a Sat'day neet Nazi Party Maidenführerin Ingrid would prefer to forget - say no more...

    Sigh. Disappointed. I thought it was about Looper in heels.

    Loops, I don't know if you'll do better than this guy. He got the moves right. Kudos to him!



    P. S. I've got a colleague whose hobby is collecting & assembling those robot Gundam toys. He's got some of them displayed on his desk.

    There's a method to his madness, look at the pic again and you'll see the bird on the back of the Harley is giving a reach-around

    Is this some weird silence of the lambs type Nazi frenzy?

    I never thought of the Silence of the Lambs angle with the moths Joe. I might run with that one if you don't mind.

    Meanwhile on the island benchtop...

    Nevah in the field of kitchen conflict has such a smorgasbord of spitfires been unleashed in the name of freedom and democracy

    Mk I star of the Battle of Britain leading the honours

    One for Looper-img_20211206_224629ls-jpg


    The Mark IX on the left was reputedly the best and pilot's favourite

    A rare Mk XII with Griffon engine on the right

    The 2 blade propeller behind the Mk I was K5054 the Mk 0 Spitfire prototype which was the only spitfire that RJ Mitchell ever saw in flight before he passed away in 1937

    Their finest hour parade would also not be complete without a workmanlike Hurricane hero bringing up the rear

    Beautiful detailing on the Mk XII

    Possibly the most iconic aeroplane in the history of aviation is the Spitfire with the Vulcan bomber a close second then followed by the A380.

    I've owned several spitfire models over the years and spent weeks with my eldest making a paper mache Vulcan for a school project that won.
    As for the A380, it was luxury air travel at its finest and my most enjoyable flight out of hundreds of different flights.
    Apart from that mile high session with an Aussie bird on Lauda Air.Oh and that session in Aeroflot club class over Angola. What happens in the air stays in the air.

    Then again this is all open to peeps personal preference and history...

    An icon indeed, at the timeless pinnacle of design aesthetic in aeronautics, like the E-type in motoring.

    More weathering wizardry on this more workmanlike Wildcat

    Every rivet picked out, even through the decals, making them look painted on, which is a pro-build hallmark

    One for Looper-img_20211210_222117s-jpg

    Would be even better if I had not dropped the canopy on the floor before hoovering the kitchen

    Time to pick through the bag of assorted fluff

    Eh wot?!

    Flew on one once and said never again.

    Didn't listen.

    Flew on one twice, said never again.

    Listened.




    From seeing all Looper's pics I'm tempted to ask me mum if she's still got me Airfix collection of about 3. The F117 was beaut. To think, must have bought it 1/3 of a century ago, and still looks completely modern.

    Really? I liked the A380, the few times I've flown it. Much quieter, and no problem with the seats etc. Would even pay a wee bit more for the privilege.
