Seems likely.

The 833a filament chokes were my last Russian bargain. :)

I found an Ebay vendor in Holland when looking for caos for the upgraded 833a HT power supply. One day I'll get enough enthusiasm to re-start the build.

I have no idea what you MEAN, OOPSspeel check.

What does'little mix' mean to you that is contentious?

Not contentious, surprised, that's all! Didn't have you down as a Little Mixer...

Derivative slang: Little Mix had a song, "Down and dirty", one line of which was "Put your hands up".

Yeh. Tenuous. Whatever...I'll go back to sleep now...

I'm sat in my mum's front room in Croft, about 5 miles from Warrington.
We can clearly hear the bass from Creamfields, which is about 7 miles away !

I guess a few of us here went through a phase of buying Airfix kits from the local Woolworths, making them up and hanging them from the bedroom ceiling? I actually carried on making models until my early 30s but stopped as work pressures increased and my audio hobby took over my available time, however, I've never completely lost the interest and of late I've developed a hankering to get back into model making.

So, I've taken the plunge and bought a kit to build a 1:48 Seafire FR47, the very last of the Spitfire line.

https://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/ ... tt/00.shtm

It's basically an Airfix kit but with resin extras for a detailed cockpit interior and a miniature Rolls Royce Griffon engine, so it'll be quite a challenge. Here's a made up version of the basic Airfix kit

I love the lines of the later Spitfire variants, they combine the classic elegance with a slightly more aggresive look. The Seafire will be the first in a theme of Fleet Air Arm aircraft.

Only downside is that the cost is beginning to mount up - it seems an airbrush is an essential part of model making nowadays.
