  1. As an ex-chalkie, I also found it accurate!
  2. That might have made an ideal tank engine. I believe all sides in WWII used petrol engines in their tanks, the main exception being the impressive Soviet T-34, which had a Diesel engine. That must have reduced the fire risk and improved range.
  3. I haven’t followed this thread very closely (there’s a limit to how much bad news I can take) so don’t know if the following has already been posted. This is the most accurate and concise summary of Australia’s Electric Vehicle policy: https://thedriven.io/2021/04/28/honest-government-ad-takes-aim-at-ev-misinformation/
  4. One of the historic moments that made me proud to be Australian was when Malcolm Fraser ordered our navy to rescue thousands of boat people fleeing Vietnam. Decades later, a much more vicious enemy and a totally different Prime Minister. Afghans who helped our troops are in grave fear of their lives and what is our government doing to help them? Dragging its feet while the Taliban torture and behead anyone who helped westerners. These evil bastards have also ordered that all girls over 15 have to marry Taliban fighters. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-16/taliban-mili
  5. Old, but gold: "Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl." The priest asks, "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?" "Yes, Father, it is." "And who was the girl you were with?" "I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation." "Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?" "I cannot say." "Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?" "I'll never tell." "Was it Nina Capelli?" "I'm sorry, but I cannot name her." "Was it Cathy Piriano?" "My lips are sealed." "Was it Rosa DiAn
  6. I remember a perfect cartoon to illustrate that… I can’t find it, but was amazed and at how many have been drawn on this universal theme: Just google too many supervisors cartoon
  7. How long is a piece of string? As long as you’re enjoying the journey, it’s worth it. Just recovering the wings isn’t a major job (I’ve done it twice, learning heaps along the way. At most it should take maybe a month or two. Obtaining the materials and learning the technique is a project that would keep you off the street and out of trouble… The good news is that newer materials and paint is mobs easier to use than the older stuff. You will need a largish workshop because Jodel wings are one-piece. My D9 wing is 7m long. I bought my Jodel project because th
  8. Thanks Spacey. You’re not the first to tell me about Jodels for sale, but the one I have is enough to keep my busy!
  9. Crikey, a discussion about aeroplanes on the off topic forum!
  10. From your contact with OME, is he traveling okey?
  11. OT can I please add to your post? Many of us find Ian’s two forums a welcome outlet and break from the isolation we suffer (due to distance, social situation, or the pandemic). Life has not always been kind, so some of us can be excused for being a tad sensitive at times. Robust and potentially damaging attacks are the last thing we want to see here. I’m aware of several members whose time on these forums was brief, perhaps because they felt their contributions were not welcome or their ideas shared. I hope that when I’ve challenged others, it has not done too much damage.
  12. So that’s where all the bodies are buried.
