Re: Rebuilding my FSX

I may have read that in the booklet. Mrs A's unit has 2 slots, which must both be filled with a matching pair. I recently upp...

Rebuilding my FSX

Re: Victory Boulevard, Ashburton

I was just amazed at how many houses are packed in like Sardines. No room to swing a bat. 8) Indeed, Den, That's why the Aussies are no good at cricket - nowhere to practice. Some places are worse than Ashburton; Werribee, in the left hand picture, no room to put a ladder up to maintain gutters bet...

Paul,
You're the recipient of your Observer's badge! :thumbsup:

Brian,
You nearly earned yours by saying that you love the street names in the area, but your report omitted that this was the reason for my interest. :doh:

Chris,
It's just not cricket, old boy! :lol:

Re: Victory Boulevard, Ashburton

Anybody else had this happen?

I was going through some old receipts recently, and noticed the above address of the business. It was an unexpectedly interesting visit for me when we picked up the goods. You can either check out Google maps, or hit this link, to see why: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Victory+Blvd,+Ashburton+VI...

Re: Auster Kingsland

Hi Brian, and thanks for posting! :thumbsup: That's an exclusive jigsaw! According to my reading, that's the one and only "Kingsland" variation of the J1. It's fitted with a Continental 0-200-A, and has a slightly smaller cockpit; maybe because the engine takes up more space? It experienced at least...
