Re-thinking on these projects ... I have an idea for a joint project, obviously open to discussion ...
... this year is the 3 year we are setting HIS at the Battle for Malta Hangar, and though annually we pool a donation to the Aviation Museum I feel yet we have not given something as a club trademark! I think the Museum cries out to have a decent diorama of Ta Qali airfield as it really was during WW2, many viewers, including myself do not really have a clue how was Ta Qali airfield or remember Ta Qali as an RAF airfield, so why not design a diorama, including aircraft, afvs, AA, supply trucks, crew, groundwork etc etc ... I know during VE day the club has done a similar project in 1/72, which unfortunetly ended up at the War rooms and probably is at a very dire straits and Louise has also donated his dios but but still there is room for a 'full' setup ... so why not re-built a new one, fully detailed, maybe more detailed, accurate and to be homed at the MAM hangar?
I think we deserve to give back something in return, not only to the Museum but also to visitors ... x'tahsbu?
With a little effort everyone can do his little bit then tie evrything together in a grand display ... obviously it is not a project that can be done in a month, so we plan ahead and start and maybe unveil it next year during HIS2011!
