    To be fair, the one on the left is an Airfix 1:72, the one on the right an Airfix 1:144.

    I heard recently that they cannot get a Merlin helicopter in a T45 hangar anymore because it's jam packed full with London buses, Olympic sized swimming pools, football pitches, Nelson's Column & a partridge (in a pear tree) ;)

  5. This was the diagram we used to use at T45 Filton to illustrate the difference in size

  6. Er sonar, that's a 23 under the 45 not a 22 (batch 1)
  7. I presume those are outriggers on the back of the boat. Good idea for decent game fishing.

    I wonder why they reduced the number of dhobey lines and why the small boat doesn't have any socks hanging from them?
  8. Bear in mind that the Greenhalgh is Broadsword which was / is a batch 1 22, T23s are very slightly bigger in all respects so it's pretty relevant when comparing size.
  9. Typo?
  10. What's an 'n' between friends! :)
  11. Well spotted!
    a) I'm a sundodger
    b) I said in post #5 that was the vu foil / Power Point used at Filton and Scabbywood to show the size difference!

    Anyhow, as in a).......... great target!!
