  1. Nice one Tim. That's the first Harrow I've seen in that scheme. It certainly looks a sinister beastie with the sharkmouth markings.
  2. I do like a good vacform and this certainly hits the spot. It's a lovely looking aeroplane and you've done a fantastic job with this one Bjorn. There's something very appealing about Swedish aircraft and this is no exception. Thank you for sharing it.
  3. What a superb little model.
  4. I think a lot of it is down to the intent. If we buy the latest Airfixagawa 1/48 Scruggs Wundaplane in a Blue Stripe box just because they've released it, that is collecting. Conversely we may buy it with the sole intention of building it and proudly displaying it on our shelves or in our cabinets. However, therein lies another quandary, if, as many of us may do, we keep our built kits, could this be construed as collecting? 'Tis a very fine line that we tread in this weird but wonderful hobby. On the plus side though, it keeps us off the streets.
  5. I can honestly say, with my hand on my heart, that every kit I buy is bought with the clear intention to build it. Sadly my purchasing prowess far outweighs building performance. But let's be honest with ourselves here, if you've got one kit on the bench in the process of being built and another still in the box on the shelf waiting to be built, it is the basis of a collection. The numbers are immaterial, whether they are counted in single figures or in hundreds, the basis is still there. If we've bought it to keep, it becomes a collection, ergo, we've become collectors. Mind you it's taken me many years to admit to this!!!!
  6. A superb model and a fine tribute to ANZAC day. I must admit that these Wingnut Wings kits are very tempting.
  7. That's a great story there Tony. Sqd Ldr Lerew seems to be a bit of a character, only shorts and no parachute? What a man. The Wirraway is coming on very nicely indeed.
  8. This is one shell of a job, but you seem to be off to a cracking start. This is a definite bookmark.
  9. Nice little potted history and a really nicely finished model.
  10. That's a great looking Hellcat and nicely restrained weathering.
  11. Lovely Spitfire Ian. I like the rest of your collection as well.
  12. Not something you see everyday, but a lovely looking aeroplane nonetheless.
  13. A stunning model and stunning photography.
  14. That, my friend, is a thing of sheer beauty. It's one of the best models I've seen on this site. It is immaculate in every sense and every area of the model is perfectly finished. My only's not mine Thank you for letting us share it with you.
  15. That is a first rate model by any standards. It's beautifully painted and thoughtfully weathered. It's certainly a gorgeous looking jet.
