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.

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.

 Kentucky - born Steve Cauthen was just 12 years old when his father Tex finally agreed to help the single-minded young man realise a burning ambition to become a jockey provided he didnt let success make him big-headed.  No parental proviso was ever more faithfully fulfilled.  In the year of his seventeenth birthday the kid rode 487 winners of 6 million dollars, including the U.S. Triple Crown on Affirmed.  He went on to captivate British hearts two years later.  By 1984 he was champion. But better was to come. No wonder the fairytale ingredients of 1985 have fired the imagination and talent of Peter Deighan to such compelling effect.

 It is August 1944, barely two months since the Allies landed their first troops on the beaches of Normandy. After the failed Operation Lüttich (codename given to a German counterattack during the Battle of Normandy, which took place around the American positions near Mortain from 7 August to 13 August, 1944 ) The German Panzer Divisions were in full retreat, The British and American Generals believed it to be critical to halt them before they cauld regroup. Caught in the Gap at Falaise, the battle was to be decisive. Flying throughout a continuous onslaught, rocket-firing Typhoons kept up their attacks on the trapped armoured divisions from dawn to dusk. The effect was devastating: at the end of the ten day battle the 100,000 strong German force was decimated. The battle of the Falaise Pocket marked the closing phase of the Battle of Normandy with a decisive German defeat. It is believed that between 80,000 to 100,000 German troops were caught in the encirclement of which 10,000 to 15,000 were killed, 45,000 to 50,000 taken prisoner, and around 20,000 escaped . Shown here are German Tiger I tanks under continues attack by Royal Aoir Force Typhoons.
