  1. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Good grief, is Russia in response patenting some sort of disposable rocket interceptor that fires one salvo of rockets at the incoming B-17... I mean, B-1 formation and which then rams its target whilst the pilot parachute... I mean, ejects?
  2. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Minor bit of F-35 news, the first nine F-35s for the UK are due to arrive here in mid-July.
  3. Robotech by Titan Comics

    Attack on Veritech?
  4. Retro Gaming

    This will probably mean more on my side of the pond, but former Sinclair industrial designer Rick Dickinson has died. He designed the case for the classic, rubber-keyed ZX Spectrum home computer (for the UK, the NES of its day). The Spectrum was the right computer at the right time at the right price, but its Dikcinsons design that made it an icon here.

    I don't know why they don't just flat out state that what they basically want is a FFR-41MR Mave "Yukikaze"...
  6. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Good grief, that looks like someone had some "Ring Raiders" toys as a kid...!
  7. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    British Airways, and I flew out from Airstrip One... sorry, I mean, Heathrow Terminal 5.

    Okay, thanks for the replies about the wing issues!
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Hi, apologies if this has been asked before but I''ve just picked up a VF-1J Max and Millia pair and I've had trouble getting the wings to stay inserted on their mounting points; is this a known issue with these toys or do I need to try inserting the wing a bit more firmly?
  10. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I've just got back from one of my trips to Japan and was rather interested to see that the airliner I got back was a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which felt rather new. I was in economy, but one impression I got was there seemed to be more vertical "space" overhead than I've felt before in other airliners. Mind you, this might be just because the plane I flew out on was so old I think it still had Frank Whittles signature inscribed on the engines...
  11. Hawk the Slayer sequel

    At this stage, its almost obligatory for a British person of a certain age to use the following quote: "GET OUT!" [1] [1] A reference to the TV show "Spaced", where "Hawk the Slayer" featured as a minor plot point. The series is perhaps best known for if not making Simon Pegg famous, at least pointing him out as someone to watch in future.
  12. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Well, an entirely domestically developed F-3 is. Sounds like they're going to reach out to US firms for possible co-development. Not strictly aircraft related, but the wreck of the USS Lexington has been found: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-43296489 Not completely certain, but does on of those images show the infamous 1.1 inch AA gun?
  13. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Reportedly, Russia has deployed up to four Su-57s to Syria. Why is a bit of an open question, as by most accounts they're some way from being operational and its possible they might give away more to interested parties than they take from the experience...
  14. Ace Combat 7

    I did indeed mean a space combat game. I'm aware of "Battlefront II" and the starfighter combat is quite good fun (if only I could stop ramming asteroids) but it'd be nice to have the kind of truly epic space dogfights and batsh*t crazy story "Ace Combat" is known for... "Sir! Its the Rebel Fleet! And... and... " "And what Lieutenant?!" "They... appear to be singing, sir!".
  15. Ace Combat 7

    That or "Star Wars"...
