  1. The refueler is a Leyland Hippo, with a cut down cab, must be a special aircon version for the (dry) tropics.
  2. Well done, I like the way you mixed the ammo boxes up, just like the real thing.
  3. They look pretty good to me, tidy construction and nice brushwork.
  4. 'The box art immediately made me think it would be the newer A-4B/Q kit. I just can't fathom why they'd use the A4D kit, nor why anyone would suggest it when the new kit exists!'. Its not that far fetched as it was used for the original Top Gun box set, for the original Top Gun movie. Either way it's only 'about' rightish. And the Airfix reply, apart from the contextual variety, whats with the 'off of'?, surely not a very English use of english.
  5. They did an original TOP GUN set the first time round, that had the elderly A-4. Surely that mould has been put in the boneyard.
  6. Great seeing these posts, the ones were you show your fathers work in progress, would put most full size assembly lines to shame. And they all look to be competent builds too.
  7. I think the old (60's) vintage Revell F-111/TFX had the option of the long wing. Its a bit gimmicky but can build into a nice model, and at least some of its incarnations had RAAF markings, sort of. They can often be picked up for budget money.
  8. Great weathering, just down to the chromate.
  9. Due to the lack of flights to/from NZ (a drop of approx 70%) , freight costs are currently 3-4 times pre-covid. I'm sure this wouldn't have helped the WNW situation.
  10. One thing with the wealthy investors, they rarely use/loose their own money. So if the taxpayer funding dries up, maybe that's where this rumour comes from.
  11. Those low slung wings make it look like a JU52/DC3/Wellington hybrid.
  12. SAFE was a New Zealand airline/engineering provider. I recall the Freighters trundling through the sky, very distinctive rumble.
  13. Never built a Phantom. Have owned a few, and may still have one...somewhere, but never built.
  14. Well done, the first thing i noticed was your slat work.
