    Mmmmmmm....! ;)

    RS625 'NE-D' flew with 143 Squadron Banff Strike Wing ffrom 7 November 1944, operating off the Nowegian coast in an anti-shipping role. 143 shared in the destruction of U804, U1065, U251 and U2359 in addition to many other successes.

    Revell's 1/72 U-boat - a monster of a kit that I'm slowly piecing together myself - it's over 3 feet long.

    Martin that picture reminded me of a question I had about the Mosquito. On the inboard top of the wings they have the red X on each side. I assume they mean not to walk there but why there and not the rest of the wings ?

    Used to wonder that myself TA until I had a good close look at examples at the Mossie Museum.

    The area you're referring to is over the twin radiators : these are really packed into the wing between engine and cockpit and are covered only by a thin sheet of ply. Being quite a nice flat area it would be a tempting place to stand.....

    Mahross - it's going, well - slow, I can post a picture of it in the box [​IMG] ... and I already have a shelf up on the wall to put it on, so I HAVE to finish it. I know what you mean - I saw the huge box in the shop and had to get it. I'm finishing up the main hull and the sanding - there's a lot of sanding. Overall, a kit I highly recommend - not a difficult kit at all, just haven't had the time lately. :(

    Who won the argument, the ones fleeing from the East Front, or the guys fleeing from the West Front? They are trying to cross the one-lane bridge in two directions, but everyone seems pretty relaxed about that! :D
