LR003852 Cargo Net for Freelander 2

I’ve been after this cargo net for ages. It’s a very useful net that serves a couple of functions: – I wasn’t willing to pay the £60+ that is generally demanded for LR003852. I think the price these things retail at is a bit unreasonable and £30 is closer to the mark.

Dambusters’ 70th Anniversary Flypast

Here at GLR towers we love aircraft! When the chance to see the BBMF Spitfire & Lancaster at Derwent reservoir presented itself, we couldn’t resist! The occasion was the 70th anniversary of ‘Operation Chastise‘. As usual we spent quite a while planning (dithering) on how we would mount our campaign. An early start was in order so we decided such a… Read more »
