    Never liked the 2 seat Spits but they still sound great. Remember that episode with the challenges against their German counterparts, was very funny in parts (especially the overemphasising of the war etc)...

    Matt: Me too, I miss those programs from the time when I could still watch the BBC. :)
    And the bubble canopy may look wrong, but DAMN I'd like to go for a ride in that one! :lol:

    Gnomey: I don't think I've ever seen that episode, gotta see what I can find online at YouTube. Have you got an episode title or something that'll help?

    I love the sounds of Merlins in general. ;) :lol:

    Edit: And of course they had to use the main theme from "Battle of Britain" - pure joy for a soundtrack geek like me. :thumbleft: :thumbright:
