    Landing gear doors or gear doors for short, and the wheel wells are called landing gear bays.

    I'm far from a specialist when building a model is concerned. Out of the 30 or so aircraft I have started builds on, I have finished three. The rest were "destroyed" in the process. 8v) Even vehicles have suffered the same fate, but double the number of attempts.

    However, I know good work when I see it and you do do good work. 8v) Keep it up!

    Hi @ all..............

    Dear dwgannon,

    what`s the meaning of "Phoo Ba" ?? I remember the film "soldier james ryan", there it was an item for the german word - furchtbar - in english it´s - awful - ...........I´m right ?? :wink: :wink: :wink:

    best FLU

    P.S.: I enjoy this english speaking forum, because I have not so many chance to improve my english.............if you all out there do not understand me please correct me ......:oops: :) :grin:

    In the 60s, there was a weekly half hour cartoon on US television called the Flintstones. They were a stone-age family. Fred, the main character of the family, and his neighbor Barney, were members of the Loyal Order of the Water Buffalo, a "men's only" club. The president of the club was called the Grand Poobah.

    The blue cap on my avatar's head, and on my former photo avatar is the symbol of the Grand Poobah. 8v) I guess it has something to do with the Flintstone card models I produce.

    Meet The Flintstones

    Yabbadabbadoo!

    I remember very well Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty, Bam-bam, Dino and the other characters. "The Flintstones" was one of my favourite TV shows back in the 60s when I was in my early teens and TV was black & white.

    How about when Fred gets a giant spare rib delivered at the Drive-in that flips his car over, or when he tries to take Dino 'the dog' out in the evening but the smart little dinosaur locks him out and he yells "WIIIILMA!" and bangs furiously at the door to get in.
    We rolled with laughter every time!

    Bengt :grin: :grin: :grin:

    Funny how this really is a small world! The Flintstones............. I would have never thought that folks around the world would understand Yabba Dabba Doo!:grin:

    fluthecrank.......... your English is way better than the anything German that would accidentally come out of my mouth. The one thing that we lack over here in the states is understanding/speaking a second language. Some of us took one in High School but most of us could not even spit out a complete sentence now. You just keep showing us your fantastic work, and believe me, if you are not understood somebody will ask!:grin:
