There were more angles to photograph than when they were parked in a straight line, and it wasn’t quite...

Re: Hornby: A Model World

There was a piece on BBC Breakfast earlier in the week about a revival of scale model making, due to pandemic and how it was helping people with mental health issues, and they were at the Airfix factory showing off the new 1/24th scale Spitfire.

There was no Farnborough air show in 1989 so why would a Tigershark be in the UK?.
