Yeah, should've called this place the 'Noobie Bar'.

We could have had great big neon noobies on the roof with noobie cage dancers and all sorts. Instead we get lumbered with this sedate 'don't call other members ***-hat or we'll send you home' debating chamber with no beer and a babes thread hi-jacked by two sad old bozo's who should know better spouting off about 17th century attitudes to copulation. I tells ya, I'm gonna do something about this. You see if I don't.

It's funny - I posted before about it - ladies like the Lysander.

Last one I got was the Russkie Spit. Looking out for the stripey bottomed Canberra, that's going to throw my strictly WWII policy out of the window, but it brings back memories of seeing them fly overhead when I was very young.

All pie in the sky at the moment until my latest plan to take over the world bears fruit.

May your plan for hegemony bear fruit beyond your wildest dreams!

If it is of any help, buy Yamana (Dow: AUY) and hold for a year. Then we can buy Corgi and order them to make every Whirlwind made in 1:16 scale with authentic Peregrine sound, and pieces of Fw 190s fly by when you press the Oerlikon button!

Are you referring to the '56 Suez Canberra or the target tow one?---I bought the '56---couldn't resist---display it by a photo of Eisenhower.... I also could not resist the white V-bomber set + a ca. 1965 B-52H which I hold while watching Strangelove.

The RNAS Yeovilton one with the black and yellow striped undersides. I can vividly remember them flying in pairs over my junior school playing fields in the early 70's - so low and slow I felt I could jump up and touch them. Even then they looked quaint and old fashioned to me - happy memories of a more innocent time I guess, I'll get my hands on it one fine day.

One of my former girlfriends, all, naturally, heavily exposed to my "leetle aeroplane perversion," developed a heavy crush on the black P-61, and strenuously urged me to build one for her---to no avail. Had it been a Mosquito, that would have been another matter. She later worked in the aero industry and thanked me for making her an old hand with the 'planes.

I built the Revell B-57 as a whippersnapper, but longed for the real thing.

What I remember from youth, and gone now except at hothouse air shows, was the ripping, tearing, snarling sound of WWII radials. The odd DC-3 or C-47 flying over etc. Once a Navy blimp went right over a friend's house so low we could read the stencils on its generous belly. Turned me into a lifelong zep/blimp person instantly! The racket was positively unbelievable---sounded like the universe was being cut to pieces! The sneaky bugger came out of nowhere---suddenly it was right overhead, just above tree level. Nap of the earth blimp tactics---the Cold War created strange anomalies!

I know what you mean about noise - we used to have a Vulcan flying over Porland every year for 'Navy Days' as a finale, it would fly low over the harbour and turn to starboard over the docks, then open the bomb doors before flying directly over my house. The noise was so loud it blotted out all other senses, it was the roar of some enraged prehistoric beast that rumbled around the area long after the aircraft had flown over.

A funny one (I swear it's true) happened last year. I was engaged in luring a female work colleague out for the evening - she decided to tell me she was a rabid collector of doll's houses and associated paraphanalia, that I would compete with her obsession, but if I accepted it there might be a chance to become more than work colleagues...funny says I, for I too have a collecting bug that would compete for your affections and confessed to my Corgi addiction.

She seemed intrigued that I could understand her dilema and the conversation turned to how she could spot a fake whatever piece of doll's furniture at 50 yards. I countered with telling her I was so sad I could tell an old aeroplane by the noise it made, before I even saw it. With that an aeroplane flew over the building.

"O.k. smartarse," she said, "what's that then?"

"Easy!" I replied, "That's a Merlin. No other engine makes a noise like that. Probably a Spitfire, could be a Hurricane, but not many of them flying nowadays."

Then it hit me. A bloody Merlin! A Spit overhead isn't something you see everday in this neck of the woods. Oh the choice I had to make. "Look..." I said nervously, eyeing the fine creature up and down as the merlin noise circled around outside.

"Get out and look at it, you silly bugger!" she laughed, "I'll still be here when you get back."

As it turned out, it was a P-51 that had decided to buzz Weymouth beach for no apparent reason, I didn't get a good look at it, but got a nice profile and underside as it banked away and shrank into the distance. P-51D for sure.

We still see each other now and again, if she spots me first she'll make an aeroplane noise to attract my attention.

A couple days ago a female for whom I have considerable regard urged me to buy that monster BISMARCK kit. That settled the matter, she was completely crazy. My kind of woman exactly. A former girlfriend once condescended to learn how to play a board wargame with me. She had never played one in her life. She knew nothing about operational technique (except, perhaps, what she picked up from watching me in action with my opponents).

The wench proceeded to dispatch me relentlessly like the Carthaginians did to the Romans at Cannae. I was gormstruck, jaw hanging like a poleaxed steer. Without a word of help from me she maneuvered like Napoleon crushing the Habsburgs before Vienna in 1805, enveloping me, scattering my forces, thrashing me without so much as an "eek" of delight. I had met Schlieffen in Knickers. "That wasn't hard" she said.

That sounds just like my ex-girlfriend, lol. She used to thrash me in the game called 'Mastermind', often while she was reading a book at the same time. Effortless humiliation. It drove me mad, especially as I was the intellegent one out of the two of us! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Of course the elemental dread to males is that for "them" what we grind away at arduously trying to master, like IL-2, might be surpassing easy, even a throwaway, to them. Which means we are cosmically inferior to them in all things but self-regard! If most women were as self-reverent as the dullest, stupidest males, they would have us in cages in a week! The key to the survival of males has been the meekness of so many women!

ARRRRHAHAHAHA

wait you were being serious, let me laugh even harder

ARRRRRRRRRRHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

I don't mean to be a pig but mens IQs are an average 5 points higher. Women are good at some things, men others. In the middle classes, I see more self-reverent women about now than men. Head strong, cocky *******s like me are a dying breed.

Headstrong independent women are great, but I hate this idea going round that obviously because they have more leverage in relationships etc, that they're the superior sex. And that men are doomed to failure. Not the case...this is how you have been conditioned by modern society, just a poor excuse to be lazy or not rock the boat. Be a rebel.
