Expect much nicer pics when the weather isn't so rubbish. I didn't even get any snow!

That's great! It is Tim's old one isn't it? Good that it stays within the club. How about your old one - what's happening with that?

That is one of the most appealing valvers that I've seen. Must be the colour, as the body kit looks more understated than usual.

What is that place though? Looks like a good HQ for the revolution :wink:

Not sure yet. Really need to get it running and sell it, but I've just been offered a very nice Delorto Carb'd engine as a trade for my AX... That'd get the bugger started :lol:

I know it'll fly through another MoT, so really just need to get it running. I'm sure Phil would be up for buying it :wink:

Oh, that's my work car park. I see what you mean though, especially with all the Land Rovers in there :lol:

What camera are you using? And what's the lens used for the nose-to-nose shot with the water tower (?) in the b/g?

It's a Rioch CX3 compact camera. It's got quite an impressively wide angle lens on it. I regularly use a Cannon Eos 300d SLR and TBH the pics this thing take aren't far off, and it's a lot more convenient for general snaps.

I only went to take some pics of the AXs inner wings for the AXOC boys... :lol:
