If he had an eye patch, people might mistake him for Snake Pliskin and comment about how they thought he was taller...

Really. Well that is $h!t. Do you reckon that has happened to everyones account (better check a few of my posts) I've been thinking of changing from photobucket for a while now as the amount of ads etc on it make it so slow to use.

Yeah this is across the board.  A few Etsy type earners have been knocked for six because of it, they don't earn enough to pay the fee's and after years of building a market Photobucket has decided to turn its users into income...

I suspect that an alternate hosting site will pop up and hopefully Photobucket will relent before losing it all because of their greed.

Engine at the front makes it more vulnerable.  Better install some sort of reactive or ablative armor.  Unless that is the sections already on the front.  In which case; Good choice including reactive/ablative armor to protect the engine at the front.

It's a choose your own comment adventure story!  Who remembers those books?

Turn to thread page 7

Not that I disagree about the vulnerability factor, but in all fairness, the venerable M113 had its engine block up front, so its hardly ground breaking location for a rear access APC design...

Although the under-fuselage mounted exhaust pipes would probably require significant amounts of maintenance after any rough terrain work, and would be better with some sort of snorkel attachment for water crossing...

I really like this one though, but always did love the Panther tank...

I really like this one... Reminds me of the classic Airfix Forward Command Post that I always wanted as a kid;

Nice. had to follow the link here from Facebook before I realised the picture shown was of the miniatures and not the original artwork!

Of course. Now we are expecting the Genestealer Limo and a recreation of every FF Cover!

Man, I wish this board had the 'Like' button, because this is pure brilliance! :applause:

In response I also instinctively looked for a like button to this. 

I love the idea...

When did Sky 1 do series 2.  Saw series one, but only seem to see adverts for the stuff on Atlantic which is bugger all help for someone on Virgin.

OK... I have a theory.

John Hurts character in 50th special.... its the Dr....

various theories floating around... but I think its THE Doctor in ALL his regenerations combined.

If you look at the outfit its an amalgamation of lots of previous outfits.

What else do you think?

Could be...  I have another one for you...  She saw all the doctors regenerations, as did we...  Apart from McGann.  What if Hurt is playing a much older 8th  doctor?

I'd back this one as long as they were completely un-armed... not tooled up adventurers.

Not completely unarmed.  A handheld sign or two and a Golden Cleric.

"Down with this sort of thing."

As a helicopter techy, I am looking at the design and thinking "why have a fenistron when there doesn't appear to be any reason to counter a torque reaction generated by a rotor?"

I can see that it would be good for Yaw control but it would also be highly inefficient to have a fenistron rotating constantly with neutral pitch on the blades. It would also be ridiculous to keep stopping and starting it because it would not have an instant control effect...

Pick up last nights Graham Norton on iPlayer... Their clip was of the Bubbleship in a Dogfight.  Spangly indeed.  And mercifully early in the show.

Tis quite interesting looking.  Hope it doesn't end up being another Prometheus

I am more worried that its another Battlefield Earth... :whistle:  Certainly hope this isn't based on the Theme Park ride.

But looks a bit spangly and I will be putting on my LoveFilm list, so will get to see it in2-3 years...

(PPPS They do still look like novelty sex toys)

Probably a good thing RTD has dropped out of the picture, that might have ended up in the script.

It went on too long and I got bored of it. Then there was the time shifting and alternative universes and that was it...

As a Trekkie.

This.  Pushing too much out too quickly over the run of TNG, DS9 and Voyager over 14 years non-stop overlapping 3 decades...  I think they just ran out of steam and the audience became bored of the same old stuff getting recycled...

The villain of the piece there was Michael Grade who was on record as wanting rid of Doctor Who ASAP.  Ironic considering the marvellous cult TV his dad brought us over on 1970's ITV land...

Will they be broadcasting a normal v ersion for those of us that dont want to watch it in 3D and assume that access to said cinema screenings will not be covered under our licence fee.

its only about Ten this weekend.  I guess we will hear more.  Seeing as how both had previously denied being asked and on the same weekend additional denials came from Barroman and Agyeman...

Personally my wish list is for Eccleston and McGann with a side serving of McCoy in a multi-doctor arc.

But thats only because Tom Baker is a bit too old to reprise (and make up for the 5 doctors when he didn't want to show up)...

Libertee's Miscellaneous Musings II / Re: Things that make you happy

Help.  The radiator is now fixed in the third bedroom.  Not only does this mean that this can now be decorated as my second daughters own room before her 1st birthday, which is good.  However now I have now lost the space required for my desk and shelffor hobby space.  Tried to go mobile with a smaller setup but cannot find anywhere with good enough light for me to work after the kids bedtime.

Can anyone suggest an alternative to make me happy again?

Doctor Who / Re: Spoiler about the new series.

What new series? Don't they mean the last half of last year's five episode "half season" wich was supposed to resume sometime ebfore Christmas but got replaced by some chavvy nonsense instead?

Was never coming back before Xmas...  The Christmas special with new companion elements should have made that very clear.  TBH I am more concerned about when it restarts as I dont get back from China until next week.  so as long as its not this Saturday then I am good to go.

That would have made a very short lotr. The fellowship set off and promptly get burnt to a cinders by a giant dragon.


Apparently all dragons come equipped with a vulnerable underbelly and can be downed by a single arrow.

Dont be so silly.  That would require a million to one chance of success. :whistle:
