    Whats that got to do with 50026 Indimitable [-X . So annoying when threads get hijacked by something totally irrelevant. Why not start a new one :-k

    Maybe it was 50026 but since it changes each day you'll get that days image so your comment is a little out of order

    This may come as an immense surprise to you, but the picture of the day for Monday 20th April may be ever so slightly different to the one posted on Friday 17th. This is because (and this is the complex bit) it changes every day.

    Possibly just new rings/liners not bedded in yet? Should clear up with a bit of use.

    Agreed, what gets me, is why is 50035 Ark Royal getting all the headlines instead. Just because it is in insipid Lard Haul livery. A couple of days with a paint brush deserves bigger praise, than an eighteen year complete rebuild. CRAZY...
