Not only a fridge but electric cookers, some even like frogs with their goggle eyed lights shining more light into the sky than down the road.

Bloke I was talking to last night recently bid on a very early 80 inch wheelbase land rover in non running condition. It was a provincial auction of belongings from a deceased estate. Been in a (dry) barn since 1960. Needed total restoration, but supposedly from the first 6 months production. With 30 seconds to go he was winning with a bid of £4500. He lost, the final bit was £17500!

An old Bullnose jag and a Landie superb.

Though I feel I want to get my hands on an old MK1 Ford Escort and turn it into the rally car I had many years ago. Good fun or a Lotus Cortina MK1 or M2 would be fine.

Thanks DC. The photos are fantastic, must be very costly to restore a Spitfire but the attention to detail is superb.
I do like old machinery, modern cars etc are just appliances to me like fridges! If I had to chose one old car (of course an impossible question) it would be a Jaguar........but not an E type, an X120 roadster, probably in BRD or Red.

For anyone interested in the Spitfire Personal Plane Services at Booker have a page on their website with a gallery of 32 photos on their restoration of a Mk1A.

The page has instructions on how to access and navigate:

https://www.personalplaneservices.co.uk/galleries/spitfire1

There are some good photos showing the wing construction.

And for good measure Alex Henshaw talks in admiration of the Spitfire:

Despite remaining a civilian test pilot throughout the war his contribution to the war effort was immense. If you are interested in the subject and have not read his books Sigh for a Merlin and The Flight of the Mew Gull are both well worth a read.

Vulcan did a fly past of Bournemouth airship in 2015 on its penultimate day of flight. A thing if beauty and a simply fantastic air show to head along to.
Sound of a spitfire is wondrous - great vid on YouTube of one buzzing Alain deCadanet by surprise his reaction being very funny.

MrJV
I was at Duxford a couple of months back for a classic car auction, and while I was there a 2 seater Spitfire took off. There are a couple of 2 seaters around I think, and I believe both were post war conversions - there was no such thing as a 'training' version of the Spitfire in WW2, you just learned your stuff, strapped yourself in and took off to confront the hun!
Anyway, the point of this is that I looked up the cost of such an experience and while you can spend £5k if you wish, half hour flights are much more reasonable - if you can call £2.5 k reasonable. I have already promised myself such a flight if HUR delivers the goods.
Ps most later Spitfire marks used the bigger RR Griffon engine, rather than the Merlin. A fair proportion of Griffon engine aircraft are amongst those flying in the UK. You can tell because they have a significantly longer nose.

Spitfire and Concorde Mr JimV! Two of the most beautiful ‘things’ ever made. Both made a fair noise too. Concorde came to Leuchars in 1984 to drop a few chaps off to play golf one evening. 50,000 turned up to watch and she put on a show. When leaving it was twilight and she lined up on the runway (08 if memory serves). She sat at the end of the runway with her tail facing the crowds and lit up the reheat one Snecma Olympus engine at a time.... the noise and smell of burnt kerosene still fills my ears and nostrils. That’s enough from me.

wellwell / Beautiful planes in 2015 which was 75 years of the RAF they had a collection of 17 flying Spitfires at Biggin Hill and as it was not far from where I live it was a fantastic site , there is a heritage Spitfire hanger now where you can go up in a Spitfire , it flies about all day long in the 3 seasons of the year and service in the winter costs about £5k for 20 to 30 minutes to be a passenger .
heres a clip on those Spitfires at Biggin Hill it put the hairs up at the back of your neck when you see them all coming over together and the noise of all those engines .

I have similar memories with Airfix. My older brother (now a fine art lecturer) was awesome. Me? Same as escargot - glue everywhere except where needed. I used to set fire to my end product and watch as the fire engulfed the crew....a bit worrying on reflection.

I used to live close to RAF Leuchars. Love planes and my dad was a CFS instructor so we’d go to the air show every year. Aside from the Phantoms my overriding memory was the time we stood at the barrier in front of a Spitfire when they started the merlin up somewhat unexpectedly. Absolutely amazing. Of course they powered the Lancaster which I was fortunate enough to get inside once.

Nice OT. Glad to hear it wasnt just me who was crap at airfix! Much prefered lego anyway 😊. fairly sure lego and bike engines lead me to engineering

"Whether we believe it or not we are so lucky to be able to invest here and leave relatively simple lives without major hinderances. Enjoy."

Well said that man.

Saw the Lancs together at Clacton Air show. Spoke to some of the support crew who were buzzing with pride and couldn't tell us enough about their trip. Fabulous 15 minutes.
Will we ever see them flying with the East Kirby Lanc, soon to fly I hope.
Lived near Newquay and after WW2 12 Lancs came over low in formation. 48 Merlins, wow. Yes, I can remember, who wouldn't

shedful / lot of the old war stories are interesting to read and talk about , a bloke over the road where I lived when I was a boy and went to the same school as his sons was a Major Alan Beckett was the inventor on the roadway which was called the Whale on the Mulberry harbour also the anchor which stopped the Mulberry harbour moving in bad weather also would move up and down with the tide , the beauty of his invention would let a tank or lorry fully laden with supplies use the Whale this was Mulberry B , which was used by the British this was his invention ,Mulberry A which was used by the Americans was a disaster because it has built different and could only take foot soldiers and jeeps also was no good in bad weather , then the house I live now both my neighbours who have long gone both help build the Mulberry harbour , but I have always been proud of knowing Alan Beckett even as a boy his name is mentioned on Wikipedia Mulberry harbour ,

I remember 17 years back at Kemble Airfield in the old Nissan style hts there were drawing of RAF pilots and crew along with funny rhymes and jokes lot of them about Hitler etc and swatiskas for the germans, I hope the drawings on the wall are saved as it was a nice bit of history to see.

My mums brother was in the Desert Rats, him and his 2 mates volunteered for the paras as they got 2 weeks at home before intensive training - they ended up at Arnhem, I saw a photo of them in a trench looking over at what you would call a B road to the german positions. Him and his mates went back every year.

He never spoke about anything to do with the war until just before he passed away.

A nice quiet man, lets hope for peace.

Yes, it flew over my cottage, not far from the old WWII airfield at Headcorn, last summer.
