  1. Haha, I always keep an eye out for other foci, so I guess we've not been nearby each other... As of course I always drive WITH due care and attention...
  2. How's it going with it anyway?? Gotta say, I don't think I've seen you around at all.. Haven't spotted your work st either!
  3. Especially lucky really, I mean who'd have thought he had the same teeth marks on his backside as your malligator and knobbled knees... Persuasive people out there I'd say...
  4. Things I Don't Like

    It's not really a "I don't like" it's more an "I don't get it" kind of post... Valentines day.... I mean don't get me wrong, I understand it, I just don't see why people would spend 364 days doing whatever then that ONE day being a hopeless (normally) romantic... I have thought about what to do this year as it'll be our first as a married couple and really it seems a bit odd when you delve deeply: Hotel stay? Yeh ok, in a building full of other couples getting it on.. Just a bit sort of, odd.. Restaurant? Again, special treatment on this romantic night by the staff...who are specially treating everyone else as well... Small pressie, flowers and a picnic on the moors (in the car if weather is bad)! I'm just glad wifey is a similar mind set..
  5. Things I Do Like

    Rediscovering bands I used to listen to and have just got out of listening too.... Reef!
  6. Things I Don't Like

    I believe that some drivers need their airbags removing and being replaced with a boxing glove on a spring, everytime they do someone stupid it should burst out!
  7. Things I Don't Like

    I was awake then too! Then up at 7:30 this morning.. Zzzz
  8. Hahah, my cousin is also a pilot out in Dubai, he flys for a commercial airline out there...  They're the sort of people you'd think might know, but as you said, they're more interested in intact aircraft...
  9. ummm, Sort of but also not.... I'd like to use the wing as the surface, the underneath will be infilled, and as for bending it..... might struggle with that   Of course, alternative is to buy some aluminium sheets and make the frame out of wood and bend and screw the aluminium onto it..
  10. Appreciate that guys, I've done the usual web searches, but actually knowing someone who knows someone is always better.
  11. Would appreciate it Ian :)   Thank you
  12. Haha... birdman outfit......not really, it's for a desk and for a side surface... potentially... Well... One room which I could fill is about 4m long, however the only issue with this (regarding aircraft parts) is the longer they are the deeper they become... therefore as a surface I might find that half the room is gone at one end.. The other is a gap of about 2m max.  
  13. Hey guys, Quite random, but then we're all from many different walks of life, so I might as well try and ask... I am after a plane wing (or horizontal stabiliser) as a project and I'm wondering if anyone: Has one? Knows someone who has one? Knows someone who knows someone who has one? etc..... As I said, quite random and I am doing a lot of looking about everywhere and with my own means, but asking here can't hurt...Perhaps someone knows a person that works at a plane breakers or something?!?!?   Thanks in advance! 
  14. Things I Do Like

    Haha, I think certain things are ok to procrastinate about (within reason), the weather is awful, it's cold wet and windy, so perhaps not optimum shed building conditions, but I find when people procrastinate about things that are hindered ONLY by sheer laziness, it grinds my gears - especially when I am currently having a holier than thou moment!
  15. Things I Do Like

    I like that sort of moment in life where instead of procrastinating or mulling something over, you just get off your rear end and do it. I actually cannot stand me and other people when we're in that "oh can someone else do it. moanmoanmoan" mood.
