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

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.

No doubt some smart arse will comment about the crew in position whilst going up/ or down and no covers fitted to the intakes but one step at a time eh ...

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

On the 11th August 1942, Flight Lieutenant Geoffrey Wellum DFC, having just taken off from the deck of HMS Furious, leads his section of gathering Spitfires on the long journey to Malta. They are much-needed reinforcements for the beleaguered island, now in the twenty-sixth month of its siege. To enable each of the 38 Spitfires dispatched from Furious to reach Malta, over three hours flying time away, they carry maximum fuel together with a centre-line over-load tank. Even their ammunition is removed to save weight. Escorting Furious to her aft is the Cruiser HMS Manchester together with Destroyers Brave and Lithe. To their port side is the Ohio tanker laden with fuel during what became an epic voyage. In the distance HMS Eagle succumbs to an Axis torpedo attack. The success of Operation Pedestal was absolutely critical for the survival of Malta, bringing desperately needed fuel, food and ammunition to the Island. Losses were heavy but the courage and determination by all involved prevailed: five of the fourteen merchant ships, including the Ohio, made it through and the island was saved.

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.

AVIATION PRINTS

Some Current Half Price Offers

Lancaster CF-X (LM384) of 625 Squadron.  On the Leipzig raid on the evening of 19th/20th February 1944 approx 47 Lancasters were shot down or failed to return, that is over 300 airmen.  Lancaster CF-X (LM384) was taking part in the bombing raids that were a build up to the D-Day landings of June 1944.  Leipzig was seen as a high value target due to its oil and synthetic fuel production.  The Lancaster took off from Kelstern in Lincolnshire just before midnight.  Unfortunately LM384 did not come back as was the case with many others - the aircraft was lost and crashed just outside the tiny village of Bledeln in Germany.  The Pastor of the village, Herr Duncker, kept a diary throughout the war and has an account of the plane crash and the subsequent burial of the crew.  All of the crew died in the crash except one - bomb aimer George Paterson who was interned in Stalag 357 Kopernikus.  The rest of the crew were given a Christian burial and stayed there until the end of the war, when the war graves commission disinterred the crew and reburied them in the Hannover war cemetery.

Midway - The Setting Sun by Ivan Berryman.
Half Price! - £55.00
 Undoubtedly one of the truly great Aces of the First World War, William Billy Bishop became celebrated for his technique of actively seeking out the enemy and bringing the fight to him, rather than the more usual practice of patrolling in search of enemy activity. An example of this was his single-handed attack on a German airfield in June 1917 when he destroyed not only a number of aircraft on the ground, but then successfully despatched another seven Albatross scouts that took off to engage him. For this action, he was awarded the Victoria Cross in August 1917 and his final tally when the war ended was 72 confirmed victories. He is depicted here in his Nieuport Scout B1566 in combat with a Pfalz D.III.
