    At Salute2012 by youngest lad bought the Bicorne Minitures figure of William Waller with his pocketmoney.
    Ths one.
    Bicorne Miniatures - Sir William Waller (Parliament), mounted

    He's just painted it today, I sat by him giving guidance but this is all his own work.
    Not bad for a 7 year old & his first figure.
    (the blond hair may not be historically accurate but he has blonde hair himself.)

    edit: i do admit I superglued figure to horse but that was for safety reasons.

    Blimey.
    I can still paint much worse figures than that...
    In fact, compare to post #1 here - I was older when I daubed that by some years.

    I told him he'd soon be better than me.
    His reply, 'I already am.'

    That is really good! (in fact excellent for a 7 year old) put some of this on it The Army Painter | SHOP and you could sell it on eBay as war game standard:)

    Doubt it, they came out in the 1960s.
    I spend quite abit of time in them in late 80s.
    Sometimes they were the most welcome sight in the world.

    Seems crazy now that a 6 cylinder 3.5 Litre petrol engine only produced about 72/73 HP. Do we use the same HP rating system today as late/post war?

    Handley Page HP.52 Hampden as crewed by Sergeant John Hannah, VC, the youngest ever recipient of the VC for aerial operations at only 18 years of age, Hannah was the wireless operator/air gunner in an 83 Squadron Hampden attacking German barges in Belgium on the night of 15th September, 1940. Returning over Antwerp, the aircraft was badly hit by flak which started a major fire in the aircraft's fuselage; so severe was the blaze that the navigator and rear gunner baled out. Hannah, instead of doing likewise, stayed to fight the flames with 2 fire extinguishers and then with his bare hands and even his flight log book. He suffered terrible burns but eventually put out the fire, allowing the pilot the opportunity to return the crippled Hampden back to British soil where it landed safely.http://www.flickr.com/photos/80691910@N06/
