Another Lightning

 Decided to build my 4th English Electric Lightning this one for a friend. Have never made a flying model before, so something new. The aircraft will be of XS904 BQ which is based at Bruntingthorpe. Will be using silver leaf for the underside. Progress is going well so far.

Flight Sim

My old flight sim joystick has been playing up for a while and getting a bit old for modern sims, so have just bought myself a new Joystick and will collect tomorrow from Argos. Will report back on how good it is later.

All set up and working, amazing bit of kit for the money and what a difference it has made to my flight sim experience, very smooth. I have only pre-programmed a few buttons and this has made a huge difference from having to use keyboard presses.

Have decided to keep the throttle and joystick together and build a sliding shelf under my desk to place it on, but highly recommended.

Bruntingthorpe Cold War Jets days for 2018


Snow

Well we had a week of snow and ice which now seems a distant memory, nights are getting lighter too, so will get out and tidy up the garden in a week or two. Looking forward to getting back out on my bike as it has been ages now.
