Hello from the Moray Firth

Good day people, after many years away from building  (planes and boats) a Bluenose kit from Artesiana is tempting me to part with some cash and I am curious as to the quality of the kits.  The last kit was a Billing Cutty Sark but it met an untimely end in a house move before I could complete the rigging.

Hello, Sabre,

You're a bit north of me, perhaps 450 miles from darkest Essex (GB), and I'm a very new member, too. I have a Billings

Bluenose waiting in the cupboard for me to finish Thermopylae which deserves better craftsmanship than I have given it so far - - - I've reached the point where it should be dismantled right back to the point where the cackhandedness started or continue in the hope I can cover up the clumsiness. I'm veering towards dismantling; I don't think I can live with the shame of

dishonest work.

I'd like to see your Bluenose progress.

Aye, 

Tumbleweed

Many moons ago I went to my first air show at Lossie and if memory serves me well it was towards the end of RNAS Lossiemouth days.   I can remember watching a Lightning taking off and going almost vertical within a couple of seconds of leaving the runway and later in the day possibly a Vulcan thundering skywards too.  Talking of Vulcans I remember seeing about six of them flying in a straight line way up at what could have been their cruising altitude and that would have been mid to late seventies flying over Inverness on a fine summer evening.
