Well Sandy just like your good self , forever fiddling and refurbishing , [well cant get down the bloody lake till I get me wheels back so what the hell .

Decided to remove the Sea Venom from the aft Lift and place a heavily modified Buccaneer in its place .....sure its not totally to scale as I cant get the correct scale models anyway [ the ship is 1/96 ] as the Aircraft are 1/72 .....but hey it looks better to me and its my model

hope you think its close enough mate

Very good Ivor.....very very good mate.

Nice to see the nose cone swung back and the Chief Stoker's ears (air brakes) swung out to limit the length of the cab overall. It sits in the lift well quite nicely irrespective of the scale clash.

Hope you're up and about very soon, at least before the winter sets in.

Sandy.

I remember 'slapping in a Preference Draft Chit' to drive it!. Didn't get it of course, but the month before I left the Mob, I got a phone call from FAA PR section at Lee (Same people as the model) asking if I would like to work there, in the art dept. Someone in high places had seen some of my paintings.
I very nearly accepted, but it was too near my leaving date, and I had made all sorts of arrangements for civvi street, and I was wearing my civvi head by then. One of those 'what if' situations.

Jim

A great what if Jim ....could have served you well , but like many Great people who contribute a great deal to this Hobby they are blind to their own contribution and feel embarrassed at confronting it .

One recent great light has been dimmed and is in danger of going out ....and is a loss to us all

He knows who he is and like your good self .....his departure will be a great loss

'Ere Ivor ......... Chief Stokers never die ...... they just fade away.

I'm still with you guys, just sorting the Watch and Station Bill for 2014. And I'm only just as far as sorting out a Blue Card for Scurs ......

(NB): Blue Card .... special duties, not falling into any of the recognised duty watches.

The Atlantic ocean was the lifeline between Britain and America, as well as millions of tons of raw materials, GIs were also transported over in all manor of hastily converted liners.  Protecting the troops from marauding u-boats and German surface ships was of paramount importance to the allied fleets.  Although USS New York spent a good deal of the war in the Atlantic, she also participated in the Torch landings off North Africa and took part in the Pacific campaign, seeing action at both Iwo Jima and Okinowa.

Half Price! - 50.00
Captain Charles Vane was born in 1680, and was an English pirate who preyed upon English and French shipping.  Vane began piracy in 1716 and lasted 3 years. Vane captured a Barbados sloop and then a large 12-gun brigantine, which he renamed the Ranger.   Vane was among the pirate captains who operated out of the Bohama at the notorious base at New Providence after the colony had been abandoned by the British.  His pirate attacks made Captain Charles Vane well known to the Royal Navy and in February of 1718 Vincent Pearse, commander of HMS Phoenix cornered Vane on his ship the Lark.  Vane  had heard of the recent royal pardons that had been offered to pirates in exchange for a guarantee they would quit plundering, so Vane claimed he had actually been en route to surrender to Pearse and accepted the pardon on the spot,  Charle Vane gained his freedom but as soon as he was free of Pearse he ignored the pardon and resumed his pirate ways.  Charles Vane was again captured and in 1721 was executed by hanging at Gallows Point, Port Royal, Jamaica on March 29th 1721.

Half Price! - 25.00

 Designed by the great Ernst Heinkel, the diminutive D.1 was an essential stop-gap that provided the Austro-Hungarian pilots with a front line fighter until they were able to re-equip with Albatros scouts in the Summer of 1917. This little aircraft performed well and was generally held in high regard by its pilots, although it did have some shortcomings, namely that forward vision was extremely limited and the Schwarzloses gun was completely concealed in the overwing pod that made it inaccessible in the air. Most unusual of all was its interplane strut arrangement, designed to reduce drag, which gave it the nicknames Starstrutter or Spider. These examples are shown passing above the German cruiser Derfflinger.

 Following the success of several French imports to Highbury, Arsene Wenger again turned to his home country in search of another midfield maestro.  Robert Pires was duly signed from Marseille in July 2000 in a 6 million deal.  Robert Pires has adjusted quickly to the English game.  Pires and his love affair with English football comes from the intensity of the game teamed with the passion from the Highbury fans.  On describing the fans' reaction when he scores, he said, <i>It's an unbelievablesensation to be standing on the pitch when the whole crowd erupts.</i>  For a man who played in a European championship final, and who won the World Cup, these words must sound sweet to the Highbury faithful.  Robert Pires received the recognition his talent deserved on winning the Football Writer's Player of the Year Award in the 2001/02 season.
