Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Seems Lego can charge £600 for a fantasy biscuit from space. It was the talk of the workshop for weeks so why not a Bluebird? Makes perfect sense to me... :lol:

Re: Rebuild

Yes, I think Mr Whoppit should now be considered retired.

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Also these aircraft were kept outside fo extended periods on fast response - so I'm not worried just yet. I knew someone who worked on Concorde - they lived outside too - but after the grounding following the Paris accident they had a hell of a job to get them working properly again because the ext...

Re: Rebuild

Hi Vernon. The original sponsons were scrapped at the end of 1967 so far as we can ascertain so our were entirely new build. We painted then blue from the off because there was never any question that they were new and not a green repair on top of something original. Some videos for you. https://www...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Don't forget the inevitable arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators and their aiders and abetters; also the fact that it would be hard to carry out speaking engagements from a prison cell. 'Just goes to show, that when the British put their minds to it they can jolly well overcome all obstacles ...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Went to Coniston today and made my first presentation in four years, for the SRC. It started out as a bit of a favour for some good mates then I got into writing my Powerpoint last night and today I had a great time presenting and larking about for about two hours with a great bunch of familiar face...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Just imagine the uproar if a jet bomber that is supposed to be grounded were to take off without authority from an airport close to several large centres of population before heading towards an active RAF base. Maybe better to fall victim to electrolysis than to take a missile up a jetpipe and end ...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Really sad that it should end up like that... :( :( It's terribly sad but they'll just sit there and do nothing. Just imagine the uproar if they actually did choose a quiet news day to sneak in there, fire up the old girl and blast her to Conninsby to formally donate her to the BBMF. The story woul...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

They should hop in it early one morning and fly it to Conningsby and give it to the BBMF. That'd be fun on a quiet news day then the RAF would have to decide what to do with it.

Re: Space, The Final Frontier

Trump's purpose is to find alien life forms out there so he can impose a ban on them travelling to the USA... Now there's irony for you... doesn't he preside over all the hopeless cases and romantics who couldn't make a go of it in their native land and so sailed dreamily for the New World to displ...
