Re: Perimeter Fencing

Many thanks for your suggestions. I have got a couple of deck chairs which I might put out in the area with some wooden crates and refreshments. I am imagining Biggles and the others relaxing and watching the aircraft.

Perimeter Fencing

I want to make a small corner of an airfield for my 1930s Biggles, Algy and Ginger to stand in. Something like the area where they are sitting at Cramlington after the rescue in Black Peril. I am not sure what sort of fencing they would have round the perimeter of an airfield in the 1930s. Would it ...

Re: Biggles Book of Treasure Hunting

I think WEJ was very interested in Treasure Hunting and old stories about pirate treasures because they are mentioned in quite a few of the books. Hunting for treasure certainly makes a good starting point for flying out to remote areas to begin an adventure. Flies West is of course Treasure Island ...

Re: A Biggles movie revival?

I think any adaptation of the Biggles books should keep the character the same. Biggles had many attributes which made him a hero and without those attributes he would just not be Biggles. I have long maintained that scriptwriters should either stick quite closely to the books or start from scratch ...

Re: Ginger Fans

Ginger is just the same in the early Air Police books but he changes in the later books and loses a lot of his charm. Ginger is my favourite character and I too love him in the inter war books, the WW2 books and the early Air Police books. I love the way he tries to protect Biggles and always thinks...

Re: VV's Air Police Sunderland

Good luck with that VV. Mr. Frecks finds red a very difficult colour to use. We use Humbrol paints for our models and they vary a great deal - some are very thin and some are so thick you can hardly use them. I am looking forward to seeing your model finished - it looks great so far.

Re: How on earth does Biggles keep fit?

I think a lot of people live longer than their parents now as life expectancy has improved over the generations. Some seropis illnesses seem to strike normally healthy people and people who overeat and take very little exercise can feel quite healthy. I do not think there is any sure way of staying ...

The Red Fox editions are the easiest to find as they are still in print. They are mostly inter war and WW2.

Re: How on earth does Biggles keep fit?

Mr. Frecks is 71 and he is certainly slowing down quite dramatically now. Some people seem really old at 70 and others are fit and active at 80. I think Biggles would have kept his youthful figure and strong constitution until he was quite old.

Re: The spammers

I belong to a Dolls House Group on Facebook where they actually check your application before you are allowed to join. They call it a Closed Group and it is run quite strictly although that does not stop some people being critical of the model making.
