|Thread: MEW 300 IS HERE !|
My copy of MEW300 arrived in S.W France this morning
|Thread: Coronavirus death stats|
At 76 y.o I wish ! but unfortunately that combination would involve two sets of guesswork. With the 'flu virus ( another coronavirus ) the virologists already have to make an educated guess each year as to which mutations the coming winter's 'flu virus vaccine should address, most years their guess is well-targeted, other years not so much so.
|Thread: Standards of Electrical Wiring|
Back in the mid-seventies I was a frequent visitor to Tehran for installation and maint of message switching equipt.
reminiscent of the wiring shown above was the cabling atop telephone poles at the Haj terminal outside the old downtown airport in Jeddah.

|Thread: Interest in pictures of models|
Ahh, yes. Thank you Michael for the link and for your contributions to that thread, I did appreciate the research and craftsmanship shewn but had forgotten how disappointed I was at the abrupt ending.
One of the most interesting construction series I have seen for years followed the construction of a bridge model.
|Thread: Another car|
If we were playing Top Trumps (as was ) you take it over my old Corvette C3 454cu.in (7.4L ) !
Mine, sold in 1978 before buzzing off to Saudi Arabia for 7yrs with nowhere to store it, was reliable except for a replacement fuel pump. The bonnet developed a crack, extending through the semi-circular reinforcing tube which I repaired (bodged) by enlarging the crack, whittling a flat on a length of broom-handle, inserting the broom-handle all the way into one part anointed with Brentford's best f/glass resin and finagling the part back into the other side of the crack and levelling the repair with f/glass resin.
|Thread: Look out, here comes a woodturner|

I thought for one moment there Brian, that you were going to say that looking up Metric sizes was a right pain in the neck......
One of those rare occasions when the 'smiley' on closer inspection actually matches the comment !
