I'm going outside to mow the lawn (mostly dirt)...

...but your post is important to me. Please leave an answer, and I'll get back to you, once the dust settles.

Shutting 'er down for the evening, Open House if correct.

Have a good day Graeme and hope you win the fight with your lawn - Cheers.

It's not a big lawn. Just wiping the dust off the monitor...

Yes mate! You have it and control is yours.

Hi irishair!

I haven't altered any of the photos apart from "darkening" them and yes, there is a Kate look about a couple of them. But they are all the same type and they are from Nakajima - but no Kates.

Looks Japanese Ki-77 - nope. American XF-12 - nope.

Looks French then, Sud-Est S.E.1010?
