« on: November 21, 2019, 05:21:12 AM »
Hello all,

Just started watching the old ĎWingsí drama series from the BBC in the 70ís. All the episodes are on you tube.

Iíve only just watched the first one but already some nice flying sequences in an Avro 504 and a Box Kite!

Worth a watch!

I assume this is on in background while you are building kits.
In Progress: 1/32 Albatross DV (Richthofen); 1/32 Morane Saulnier Type N; 1/32 Sopwith Pup

Guy,
    Thanks much for the link. I watched most of Episode 1 last night, very well done and my kind of movie! This series should keep me entertained for a good long while.
Cheers,
Lance

Thanks for turning me on to this.

But could someone please explain to me what "wind up" means?

   I've got only the final episode left to watch, enjoyed the Series a lot. I'll leave the definition of "wind up" to the more graphic resources of our British Members, it's only fair and appropriate!
Cheers, and Thanks for the Link Guy,
Lance

Getting the wind up means being scared!  ???
