  1. !!!!!!!! Don't let the admiral see that!!
  2. And how many times has that been said 🤭? It's not up to us, cats just happen.
  3. These are my go-to guys for taps in the UK (including LH/RH taps and dies). https://www.tracytools.com/
  4. Bob, didn't seem right to use the LIKE button. Glad you were on the 'next' plane that day.
  5. Name of country concerned withheld to protect the guilty: In the 1970's I hitched a ride on a military C-130 from North Africa to the US. We stopped at Gander and stayed the night. I strapped into the flight engineer seat in the cockpit (I am not a FE, won the seat at poker the night before). The flight crew had never seen snow first hand before and I watched and listened as they discussed how to take off on an icy runway AFTER we started to taxi. I wasn't ready for what happened next: they turned to face me and asked for my opinion. My predicament was solved in the next few seconds when the runway came in sight and of course it was completely clean and dry as it always is at Gander. No more was said of the matter and the takeoff and flight were perfectly normal. The only casualty was my nerves.
  6. Yes, and thank you for asking. It made me realise I had copy & pasted the wrong price! 🙄 Silly me, I will edit the post above: correct price is £50 including UK delivery.
  7. Ahhh... According to my father, who grew up working in a blacksmith shop, there is a big difference between 'fiddling ' and 'fettelling ': fettelling is adjusting (maybe drastically) and fiddling is working without a plan or purpose. Ask me how I came to need this explained to me 🤐
  8. Hello all, I have too many projects, so after some serious thought I am letting go of a few. Le Rochefort Yacht de Port - 1787. All plans (1/36) and text including the English language supplement. £50 including delivery to mainland UK. If you are anywhere else, no problem but we will have to work out the postage and packing costs. I can do some pictures if needed. I'd like to see this go to a good home with an MSW contact rather than Fleabay so let me know. EDIT: PRICE CORRECTED
  9. Hello all, I have too many projects, so after some serious thought I am letting go of a few. First up: Both volumes of The Naiad Frigate by Edward Tosti, with all plans and DVDs. VGC £90 including delivery to mainland UK. If you are anywhere else, no problem but we will have to work out the postage and packing costs. I can do some pictures if needed. I'd like to see this go to a good home with an MSW contact rather than Fleabay so let me know.
  10. Hello Len, A warm welcome to MSW from chilly Sussex. I look forward to seeing a build log for the tug, several people here have a soft spot for working boats. Regards, Bruce
