  1. I see that the Forum has twins born on this day, although the labour does seem to have been a bit protracted...

    I want one to be barely visible in an engine shed, will it be possible to just buy the front half?

    Availability of a double pack, of what are likely to be quite popular identities, need not preclude individual availability of either - as Airfix did with the Dogfight Doubles, etc. Anyway, whatever suits the producer will suit me.

    Same here - possibly worthwhile doing as a double pack..?
  5. That's what they mean by "rock and roll" - ballasting and then checking for wheel clearances...
  6. The old A-3 Skywarrior was the heaviest carrier aircraft in general service, I believe - 82,000lb against an F-14's 74,000lb - - but this will take some beating 121,000lbs by the time they had practised a bit. -
  7. This is the most fantastic thing - go back a few years in your mind and imagine how remote the possibility of an RTR weedkiller train would have seemed.
  8. A lot of dodgy things came out of Mullingar... ...some of them only got as far as Portlaoise.

  11. Ballast - for extra stability...
  12. The shirts barely covered the money-belts at DEMU...

  14. A friend of mine opened a hand grenade shop. All was well for the first few hours, as everybody who bought one paid with cash. But then a bloke wanted to pay with a card, so he asked him for the PIN...

    DEMU 2019.

    Well, we missed this bit of excitement - https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/burton/live-sainsburys-evacuated-after-reports-2950723? - Sainsbury's is just across the road from the exhibition venue. The cops said - "At 5.30pm we were called to reports of a piece of unexploded ordinance in Robian Way, Swadlincote. What was believed to be a small World War 2 bomb had been found by a member of the public and a 100 metre cordon was put in place. This resulted in a number of premises being evacuated as a precaution. After consulting the Explosive Ordinance Division from Chetwynd Barracks, Chilwell, the device was found not to be live. The cordon was lifted at 8.20pm and all premises were re-opened to the public. We would like to pass our thanks to members of the public for the patience whilst this situation was resolved." From that statement, the venue would have been outside the cordon, the discovery was about 200 metres away.
