The Big Airfix TSR.2!

After the 1/72nd scale TSR.2 hit the streets it was only a matter of time before Airfix released a bigger scale 1/48th version.

And here's one of the first samples built up: It's big and White and TSR-2 Shaped... -

Must say it looks even more impressive built up :o)

Tigers off to Asia!

TigersNews in the Hull Daily Mail and BBC Online, that after the stunning start to the season, Tigers to play in the Asia Trophy. Apparently because of Hull's position of 6th in the league on 4th November they've been invited along with 2 other Premier League teams to participate in the Premier League Asia Trophy next year.

Happy days :o)

Geo, Geo, Geo!

TigersGeovanni Wins PFA Fans Player Of The Month for October. Along with Phil Brown's Manager of The Month for September, and his Goal of The Month at Arsenal in September on Match of The Day, The Tigers are certainly enjoying their spot in the top league of football.

Just to think, 10 years ago this month, Hull City was at rock bottom, relegation out of the football league a real possibility. And, today, they're gunning for a place in Europe. Long may it continue :D

Terminal 5 Arrggghhhh

Just got back from the trip to Rome, and experienced for the second time now the joys of arriving back at Heathrow and coming through Terminal 5 :o(

Don't get me wrong, Terminal 5 is a massive improvement on the way out. The lounges, the terminal, all modern, loaded with facilities, a really relaxing journey as you prepare to leave Heathrow. But coming back? I'd actually say it's worse than the old Terminal 1 and 4. And tonight we had an outside stand, in the rain, followed by a 40 minute wait to cross the taxiway. Which, the bus driver told us, was more the norm now, than the exception.

Worse thing is, if it's like this now, what will it be like when all the flights have been transferred over?
