lets have a whip round

I think we could do with this in our mess. We'll need a whip round to rasie a few quid, but we could sell some of Dezey's 'French films. What say you chaps?

We could just wait till I ram a Stuka as the result is usually similar. Besides my er speciality films are not as easy to come by as people think.

£150,000! I'm still trying to save money to buy the Control stick and that only costs £700. Razz

Maybe the readers of the Belfast Telegraph could buy it for us, thats how they got the real version of my spit. Laughing

Hmm..

'The fuselage' ... 'Experts believe it would cost about £1.8m to fully restore the plane.'

So, judging by the picture - when they say 'restore' they mean get an engine, get a prop, get a cowling, get a tail, get horizontal stabilizers, get a rudder, get elevators, get a radiator, get wings, get ailerons, get wheels, get guns, get various tubes and wires, get paint, get rivets, etc, etc...

Also known as, building a whole new bloody Spitfire! Rolling Eyes

Though I'm not sure I much like the idea of flying a crate that the last chap bought it in - seems a bit spooky!
