Looking forward to this one but I'm sure you posted a GB suggestion for a 'crane' build. There's a great scene with a crane at the end of this film - had you thought of it and changed your mind?

Thanks Dave, I did suggest the crane and also the floatplane for the G.B.

I will just be doing the aircraft.

Thanks boys.

I reckon 'Murphy's War' to be on a par with any film Peter O'Toole ever made...including L. of Arabia!

But let's not get into discussing films eh?!!!

I should have realised, mention water and Ron won't be far away. He's like a Labrador, you can't keep him away from the stuff.............
