  1. It's not a visual meme, but a viral joke I spotted: Putin dies and goes to hell, but after a while, he is given a day off for good behavior. So he goes to Moscow, enters a bar, orders a drink, and asks the bartender: -Is Crimea ours? -Yes, it is. -And the Donbas? -Also ours. -And Kyiv? -We got that too. Satisfied, Putin drinks, and asks: -Thanks, how much do I owe you? -5 euros.
  2. Yes, I have seen the same images of destruction too, But there was a second Antonov-225 under construction before Putin's stupid special operational mistake. A clone 225 could be part of a Ukraine resurgence. There also the odd support groups like this Lego https://www.brickmania.com/an-225-mriya-strategic-airlift-cargo-aircraft/?mc_cid=6d65613b42&mc_eid=f747a183e1 as well as: https://www.brickmania.com/ghost-of-kyiv-mig-29-fulcrum-ukrainian-twin-engine-jet-fighter/ and https://www.brickmania.com/bayraktar-tb2-ukrainian-unmanned-aerial-combat-vehicle/ not to mention the minifig lego legions with: https://www.brickbanter.com/post/citizenbrick-sells-out-of-president-zelensky-minifigures
  3. The only problem in getting up early to make tea for your wife, is leaving your warm patch up for grabs.
  4. Ernie, glad to hear you are ok, sorry that I cannot help with any cold weather advice here from Sydney, although its not all hot and sunny for us this year. It's a "La Nina" wet year, one that's getting yearly more frequent ( almost Monsoon like ). Just like to add that seeing all LSM's site models in build stages is so inspiring. Regards Ernie, and all with LSM from Australia.
  5. Yes, I found Gladwell's narration ( and writing ) really informative and diverse, covering details in length like the Norden bombsight and various operations in Europe and Japan.
  6. Just saw your post of the 1:35 DKM TYpe VIII-C U-Boat! All we need now is a boxed model of a 1/32 scale Sunderland flying boat, for something like scenes created by modeller Lee Won-hui https://imodeler.com/2017/11/1350-u-boat-viic-the-beginning-of-the-end/ Regards Iain
  7. I've been listening more than reading these days. my most recent narrated book in My current distraction are the memoirs of Maj. Gen. Charles W. Sweeney. The last military officer to command an atomic mission. Oh and the previous AudioBook was Bomber Mafia, Written and narrated by: Malcolm Gladwell
  8. Found these on a Facebook group Short Sunderland "Flying Porcupine" Apologies if you already have these as reference, Regards Iain
  9. All the best from Australia Harv, get well soon
  10. Some recent SR-71 postings from Hyperscale Australia http://hyperscale.com/2021/galleries/sr71arevell48dw_1.htm
  11. On an update.. has anyone seen this long and detailed B-52H walk around video? https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/42703/this-is-the-most-incredible-tour-of-a-b-52-stratofortress-we-have-ever-seen Has anyone built ( or received ) that 1/48 scale B-52, or has there ever been a 1/32 version!!
  12. Heat exchange, without any diplomatic acceptance.
  13. I like the choice of Doom Bar for a beer, although growing up in Cornwall is probably a factor here. Fantastic work watching this build. Regards Iain
  14. Pity most are in resin, but then, we are now getting more used to wearing ppe masks and hazmat suits.
