  1. 1/144th TSR2 with Skybolt

    Gorgeous work!
  2. It looks like a Mustang, and the wheel wells don't have the fake rear wall.
  3. Airfix 2018

    Paul Allen's Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum is in Everett, which is near Seattle...finally the 1/24 Po-2 we've all been waiting for!
  4. The Territorial Air Force, a short-lived Kiwi version of the Air National Guard, operated them from about 1950-55. We were meant to get 320 or so for The War but ended up with only three dozen which equipped four "Citizen Soldier" squadrons.
  5. 1/48 HobbyBoss MiG-31B/BM Foxhound

    I need to get some Soviet/Russian Cockpit Blue and that looks fantastic. Hopefully I can find something in New Zealand!
  6. it's CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    On Facebook Airfix confirmed to me and another bloke the news when we asked about the ETA of the Advent Calendar: "Not this year I'm afraid Gents, you may have some festive treat for you throughout December so keep your eyes peeled."
  7. 1/48 scratch built JU-287

    Very cool! The Ju287 is such a weird machine...but, at the same time, so cool! I can't imagine having the guts to try it in 1/48 so bravo!
  8. 'Greif' by name, Greif by nature!

    I don't understand these apologetic posts from modellers who have just become parents. My wife's well aware I'll be back at the bench in no time once we have a little one! I'm sorry to see your return is accompanied by yellow and flaky decals, JB. Hopefully you can find a simple, easy solution as I've really enjoyed your build.
  9. That first photo of the inner skin and bulkhead all painted, I honestly thought for a moment it was metal/alloy. Brilliant work!!!
  10. Fantastic, Ced! It's so nice to see that MiniCed isn't just sat ramrod-straight like a typical 1/72 pilot, and I love your work with the pilot's boom mic! Inspired!
  11. 1/48 Yak-52: Amodel or ARK Models?

    Hi all, I’d like to build a Yak-52 in 1/48 as flown in the Vietnam People’s Air Force for training. It looks like both the Amodel and ARK Models kits are currently available and reasonably priced, but which should I go for? I have a bit of experience so am not afraid to build an Amodel kit, but I’d like to know whether the ARK kit has any advantages rather than jump in with the Amodel and regret my decision. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Also if by some amazing fluke you have any cockpit photos of Vietnamese Yaks I’d love to see them!
  12. After searching through photos on Airliners.net I began to realise that! I like it a lot, very believable! Bravo.
  13. I always thought the Su34 was a cool machine - who doesn't love a strike fighter with a galley? - but in that scheme it looks awesome! I had no idea the Poles had Flankers in such a scheme. I'm off to look at photos - I'm jealous you have the opportunity to see them in person. Thank you for sharing, spiton, this has brightened my morning.
  14. As it's sometimes mistaken for one, how much of a Beaver kit do you think you could use for the Broussard? I've often wondered. At least the boxy fuselage would make for a simpler scratchbuild (says he of little experience).
