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.

 Almost every major invasion that took place in Europe in World War II began with para drops, and in almost every case the C-47 was the aircraft that delivered these elite fighting troops. Few C-47 pilots had more combat experience than Sid Harwell, seen flying his Dakota in this typical action scene, dropping airborne troops into occupied Europe soon after D-Day. No matter what resistance he encountered, the good C-47 pilot put his aircraft right over the Dropping Zone, every time.

 Under the watchful eye of his more experienced tutor a trainee pilot gets his first taste of the Spitfire Mk.IIa, airborne from Tangmere early in 1941.  the nearest aircraft is P7856 (YT-C) which enjoyed a long career, surviving until 1945.

 Set in a spectacular mountain scene, Nicolas Trudgians print records the last days of air combat as World War II drew to a close.

Commanding JV-44, General Galland countered the threat by employing Fw190 Dora 9s to fly top cover. Nicolas Trudgians painting depicts the colourful Fw190 of Hptm Waldermar Wubke of JV-44 as he prepared to scramble Red Three at Ainring airfield in may 1945. <br><br><b>Published 2000.<br><br>Signed by two Luftwaffe Knights Cross holders who flew the Fw190D-9 operationally during World War II.</b>
