This page contains a diary of the changes and additions
to this site.
2/11/03: Minor update to Links Page. Minor updates to the homepage.
26/10/03: Submitted the site to 30+ search engines and web directories
10/10/03: We've moved to a new home! Full site re-write to follow........
24/8/03: OK, a few more changes. I'm modifying the layout
New Home Page Layout with "Feature" Page links
- no 'News' on home page any more.
'News' now has it's own seperate page and link.
Added dimensional specs to both the Sioux and Kiowa pages
22/8/03: Sorry about the slow update, but it's a major!
I've just completed a total re-write. I have removed the frames, as I
suddenly realised what a pain they are for everyone. I've also tried to
rearrange things so that the site is a bit more friendly to 1024x768 (and
above) users. 800x600 is still pretty ugly, but it's about as good as
I can get it in a picture rich environment :). Please let me know what
you think of the changes.
12/8/03: Added a links page. Have a look at some of the
sites that I visit on a regular basis.
10/8/03: Great news! Thanks to John Conway of www.vhpamuseum.org,
and Bill Brooks I have been given permission to display some of their
Have a look at the OH-58A Kiowa Page to see
a pic of the actual slick that inspired the noseart on my Kiowa, and a
pic of an OH-6A Loach from the same unit. Added a Guestbook.
Still to do: Finish the specs for the Kiowa and Sioux
pages . Both machines are in pieces at the moment!
8/8/03: I'm currently working on finishing the OH-58A
page with flying pictures. I have three new pages under construction -
the Piccolo OH-13 Sioux Scout page, New Zealand Piccolo Warbirds page,
and a humorus photo series called "A funny thing happend...".
I hope to have these finished this weekend.
10/7/03: Two updates in two months - WOW! :). Ok the bad
news is that the Piccornet Cobra is dead. It
gave its all in a valiant attempt to track down a radio glitch, and is
now just a pile of ripped card and foam-board. The GOOD news is that the
Piccornet has again risen phoenix-like from the ashes. This time in the
guise of an OH-58A Kiowa Scout from the Vietnam
war era. You can see and read all about on the new Piccornet
OH-58A Kiowa page
25/5/03: Well it's been over a year(!) so time for a small
update. The Piccornet has become an AH1-S Cobra Gunship! I've added a
new page here with a couple
of Pics and specs of the heli in its latest guise...
09/05/02: I just realised I have made this
site in 1280x1024 and it looked real bad in lower resolutions.I've
now made some changes to font sizes etc. to try and get a resonable 'look'
in 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024. Please let me know if it looks OK
09/05/02: Cleaned up the Pics section a
bit and started on the consturction section
30/4/02: Added a few more photos and added
28/4/02: Threw this together very quickly
so that I could get the pictures of the Piccornet on-line.
