    Soldering Basics (Updated)

    A more compacted form of the original thread. Aplogies to those who left kind comments now edited but I've decide to trim as a consequence of the thread starting to wander: ------------------------------------------------- For those feeling timid about stepping foot into the world of...

    Steve Begg Interview

    David Sisson has posted his recent interview with Steve Begg on his site. Well worth a read. Bigger photos though please David. :)

    Highlighting Forum Rules

    Unfortunately, from time to time, it becomes necessary to remind members of the forum rules. This is presumably because certain lines have been crossed or close to being crossed in various threads. While all the rules should be adhered to, it's not always obvious where the problem is. So that...

    Soldering Basics.

    For those feeling timid about stepping foot into the world of soldering, it's much easier than you probably suspect. This is a basic introduction to encourage people to have a go. What is soldering? It's the joining of two pieces of metal or alloy with another lower temperature melting alloy...

    Database Error

    Anyone else getting this irritatingly frequently? I sometimes have to click on a particular link three or four times or go via a roundabout route to get to where I want to go. I even got it just now trying to post this thread here in "Commander's Office". System glitch?

    40th Anniversary Press Conference

    A talk by seven of the surviving Apollo astronauts just over an hour long. I think it should at least be recognised as a national celebration/holiday and it's not even my country.

    Apollo 11 Crew Reunited.

    I've even stood on that very spot. That'll be hallowed ground next time I go.

    Happy 40th Launch Day.

    Yep, this day exactly forty years ago, at 9.31am EDT, three men sitting on top of a mighty Saturn V set off on Man's greatest adventure.

    "Commissioner Simmonds Office".

    Simply a proposal that a new section be created next to the "Troubled Spririt" maybe where all political discussion goes. That includes any item involving a politician or ex politician or political issues like global warming. If it can be arranged that access to view and post has to be granted...

    Dambusters Are Go

    Just came upon this article a few months old. I know this Peter Jackson film has been talked about a lot but this is the first solid news I've seen of it happening. A good way of getting around the 'N' word too (although some PC knob will still claim offence). Stephen Fry writing the script...

    Eagle 3 Photos and the Hovercraft Charity

    Since everyone is keen to see photos of Eagle 3 before they die, I'm going to kill two birds with one stone. Below is a taster of some photos that I'm going to donate to the Hovercraft Museum to kick start this year's fundraising. These photos were taken in 1995 when I had the rarely seen model...

    Offline for a couple of days.

    I'm off on a trip this weekend up t'north so don't panic if anyone has PM'd me and not got a reply yet. If you don't hear before I go, you will when I get back. Have fun.

    More Laser Tank Door

    Starting a new thread with this as the other discussion is likely to get lost on what started as an eBay thread. Here is a revised replica Laser Tank door. A couple of details yet to be added and the blocks surrounding the door need to be sanded down a little further but overall, I feel this...

    Mike Admason Joe 90 F-116

    Congratulations to Mike making it into the most recent issue of Fine Scale Modeler magazine with this gallery entry. Very cool.

    'Quantum Of Solace' Theme Released

    .... and it's dreadful. A bit too close to (c)rap for my tastes.

    New "Quantum Of Solace" trailer.

    Sadly they couldn't resist the new Indiana Jones style tricksy (and obvious) CGI stunts and camera moves falling through the roof but otherwise the film shows some promise.

    Ripmax Boat Fittings

    Finally I've managed to find my Ripmax catalogue from 1976. It's been a bit of a trip down memory lane looking through it as I can't believe it's over thirty years old. Anyway, more importantly, here's a scan of the page covering Ripmax's range of boat fittings, plastered fairly liberally over...

    Wall-E (spoilers included)

    Just came back from watching this tonight and have to confess to being completely underwhelmed. Some of the production design is superb and more amazingly, some of the vistas of Earth, considering it's for a computer cartoon, were better and more visually convincing than some of the stuff in the...
