Yes, I am planning to do some more but so are quite a few other more talented skinners so I think you'll be spoiled for choice !

Nice paintjob!

 

Spinners I'm 99% sure they're still down there although they should be replaced by Typhoons in the next couple of years if not sooner.

 

Vaguely reminds me of the story when Portillo became Defence Secretary*.

 

Portillo to RAF "Where's you're number one tip top up for it squadron"**

 

RAF No. 1 "RAF Mount Pleasant the Falklands"

 

Portillo "and what's your number one tasking?"

 

RAF "Air defence of the UK"

 

Portillo "Bit inconvenient from down there isn't it?"

 

* For out younger readers this would have been under a Conservative government around the time people were playing with this new fangled thing called the internet and dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

 

** This may not be an exact transcript of the conversation...

Dave yeah I was down there in 97 and I got a joyride in Charity...

 

The place is like Scotland but with more sheep and less people.

 

Within 20 minutes of being there I had had all weather conditions known to man and a few more applicable to small planets near Betelgeuse... Its a great place if your into wildlife and walking apart from that its cold damn cold and thats in Summer. Height of summer we had a barbie on the helipad went to work and the next morning had to dig ourselfs out it had snowed so bad....

 

Eurofighters will be replacing the Tornado's next year I think...

 

And to the lovely Syrinx these skins are damn good.... along with your 5 111 and 56 squadron's... thanks for leaving the soot marks on the fin where its supposed to be....

 

And are you going to be nice and do a Saudi skin one :wink: ???
