  1. The Hachette 1/18th scale Spitfire looks mouth watering in the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain year, What a cost to complete it though.:o

      120 in total but it's 100 to actually finish the model.

      So 100 issues, at ca. £9.99 each. Ouch!

       

      That's probably related to the unnecessary gimmicks 'incredible functions' that they've added.

      Considering that makes you 95, I think you have

      every right to look confused!

      My Spit will not fire beyond the Exe I'm sorry to disappoint you and I am unable to comment upon my fellow Westcountry amigos.

      Is Guilford anywhere near Stockleigh English ?

      I'm quite fond of Guildford (bloody nice Thai restaurant there the last few times I've been) so this will be an extra incentive to return.

      Ah, so the news has now gone public - great stuff and a good initiative by Chris so I hope it will be a great success.  As good as the D6XX i saw running ona layout at the Basingstoke show today (only trouble was that it was blue and had headcode boxes but that apart it looked very nice indeed and ran beautifully).

  6. Flushable wet wipes. Whatever next.....

      I want to know who's flushing all this fat down the toilet. I've never seen a block of lard bobbing in a toilet bowl.

  7. Bachmann must be praised for their latest GWR green, possibly the best shade done so far on a GWR rtr model.

      All of the above. There are too many things that are allegedly 'Iconic' or 'Legendary' and certainly too many people. Mind you, I'm sometimes guilty of referring to London Transport 1938 tube stock as 'Iconic'.

      If the shop assistants in Greggs couldn't pick up the 'sausage' rolls 'because they didn't have the right tongs', then they could have asked me and I'd have picked them up for the punters, in exchange for a nice pasty. And if they didn't have a nice pasty, as Mr Stationmaster clearly implies, then they can give me a gift voucher for Philps in Camborne instead.
