Bottom and 2 sides completed. Now, either I am not looking very hard (which is a distinct possibility), or it ain't there: a good top-down drawing of the fuselage showing CLEARLY the opening for the cockpit and gunner's compartments. In a convertable scale. I know that there was a passage for the gunner to the cockpit - wasn't the rear gunner isolated? I have the Squadron book and the Datafile. By the way, the girl at the local copy shop balked when I wanted to photocopy several sets of the drawings to use in the construction, because of the copyright on them! I wonder if the owner of the shop read the whole 'Jastagate' debacle? I assured her that it was all O.K. and that my copying them was for personal use. Nice to know that there are still folks who stand up for the right!

The 'history' spans several hundred years and 4 generations of Blackadders and Baldricks - the final generation being in the Great War. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Blackadder series. Rowan Atkinson does a completely different character than Mr. Bean(especially in that PATHETIC made-for-US-consumption film), and though the cast stays much the same, there are great guest appearances from Tom Baker, Robbie Coltraine, Brian Blessed, Miranda Richardson, and Rik Mayall - to name a few. Hugh Laurie is great as the Prince Regent in the 3rd series (speaking of twits). And the WWI episodes ('Chocks out, wheels up, the last one in the air's a homo') are brilliant!

I'll se eif I can get over to Stratford. I have to stay an extra day after the music convention ends. To fly home on Monday would mean a $900 round trip ticket. Flying Tuesday only costs $400!! So even with an extra night at the hotel and an extra day of expenses my company still saves money. And If I must I suppose I can find something do do for a day on my own away from the office and the kids with expense money burning a whole in my pocket ;-) MVJ ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 7 Feb 2001 10:59:04 -0400 From: Mark Vaughan-Jackson To: wwi@pease1.sr.unh.edu Subject: Re: British accents - Pals and not-Pals/ was: OT tank horror story Message-ID: >We have a Britt working in my outfit and he has learned that an afectated >upper class accent can really pull the locals chains.

I had two great great uncles (or cousins or soemthing) from Newfoundland killed at Beaumont Hamel within a minute or two of each other. . .while their own uncle watched on.

I enjoyed the entire series but the most amusing and thought provoking was the WWI final series. The final episode of them all yelling like madmen (foolish fops, craven Blackadders, baldricks and all) going over the top and into a hail of bullets and then fading out to the battlefields as they look today is an image that remains burned into my brain. of course the other reason I love the series is Rowan Atkinson is the only man I know how can make me laugh simply by the way he says words like "Bob" "Nipple" and "Bottom" And of course "Baldrick, run at my fist very, very fast."
