A Gangster ready to depart The second weekend in September has to be the best of the year. I haven’t enjoyed myself so much for a long time, and the flying was great too! Although I'm rarely able to get to events such as this, I think that all clubs should try to host a Splash-in, and encourage members to attend events in their area. Just south of Inverness, Loch Insh is a long way north, but the scenery is truly spectacular, so it's well worth taking a few days extra holiday just to enjoy the countryside. Loch Garten and its Ospreys are just a few miles away, Loch Ness and Fort William and Ben Nevis are an easy tour, and the trip up the A9 from Perth is delightful and well worth the effort.

Poised and waiting for the first flight! A link to Dual Ace Pt. 1 is at the foot of this article - Ed. The cockpit of the Seagull Dual Ace (Madonna with the big red spinners, as I call her) is quite big and airy, and seats two crew and six passengers. That is probably more than most Modellers have on their shelves, and is quite expensive to kit out.

Poised and waiting for the first flight! Santa came two weeks early to Orkney – we are after all under the direct reindeer flight path from Iceland to Shetland to Edinburgh to Paris – so perhaps that was no surprise. A big box arrived from Inwoods and inside was an ARTF model. There could only be one name for this dame, as soon as I tore off the protective wrapping and feasted my eyes on the labels it just had to be – The Fallen Madonna with the two big Vroom–Vrooms. Those two big red spinners were real eye–catchers.
