Re: Newark Air Museum Events 2021

Another recommendation from me, attended a couple of events a few years back and ended up selling everything I took.

I'll be back this time looking to spend the money though, hoping there's a fair few kits on sale.

Mike.

Revell released a 1/48 Ch53 recently, not sure if you could make that in to one?

Re: Log 7-9th June

Noticed today ZZ416 departed to Hawarden as Vulcan 46, the crew look to have returned in ZZ418 calling Vulcan 48.

Was hoping we'd have a full complement of Shadows now but we're at 5.

Will try confirm whether it's an R1 or R1+ model, I think it's still a 1.

Re: Log June 1st - 4th

FF,

The callsign was indeed Zulu Zulu 417, just spotted my typo.

Thanks for the info re the parking bays, I did wonder!

Hopefully one/some of the R1+ move this week.

Re: RAF Jets in 1/48

Thanks for your list Binbrook!! I did enjoy building the Canberra's, will keep a look out for a B2/B(I)8. The Jet provost is on the to do list after seeing some good examples on here, and the Chipmunk does look tempting despite not being a jet. I'd forgotten about the TSR2!! Although I hate painting...
