I told you before, Terry... this makes no sense! Unless maybe you connect to the web via a public computer whose IP has been banned, otherwise it's probably a cache-related fault on the server's side. Have you thought of writing a PM to overscan? Besides being this here site's founder and administrator, he is also one of the admins there (never saw him post anything there, but I believe he visits from time to time). Ask him to help solve the problem and I'm sure he'll be glad to oblige.

If no one has any objections, I shall do so shortly. You will have to give me a chance to take some more pictures, as my camera batteries gave up after I managed to take two pictures of the finished model, all from one angle.

If there is a general feeling that it would be better to not dilute this thread with model related items, I could start a thread over in the modelling section of this forum, though I'm not sure who here can actually view that section.

Yes, my inability to join another website group/forum is off-topic. Why haven't I had any suggestions to add to the Airbus list?

I guess that's because it's perfect as it is!!! LOL
Good job, Terry.

Thanks a lot, Duncan! I personally don't believe these pictures were really off-topic here since it was not an imaginary design on your part, merely an interpolation of a real design in airline delivery. Pretty much like a company-produced "artist's concept", in a way.

Regarding the A350-1000, it looks there's going to be a further 45 seat stretch of the design, with 411 seats rather than 366.

Apparently this new stretch version has the official designation A350-8000: https://ca.news.yahoo.com/airbus-touts-400-seat-a350-8000-jetliner-025157878--finance.html
