    Hello Mike, Yes, I did enjoy your AV-8B entry. great model and excellent photography. Also the figurines look superb. Regards, Orion.
  5. Hello Min, Great job, especially on this rather small scale. Besides that, "MARINES"always good. Regards, Orion.
  6. Dear Readers, Available in the better bookshop or on line. In search for the British Task Force, the former Colossus Class carrier HMS Venerable was ordered out into the South Atlantic. This whole operation has been put down in writing. Interesting text, pictures and drawings. Also for the modeler. All for a very reasonable price. Author; Mariano Sciaroni. Regards, Orion. / The Netherlands.
  7. Hello Pat, Impressive model. The color scheme has a lot to do with this. Sharp in construction and finish. Regards, Orion
  8. Hello David, If you can make a nice model from Frog. I must consider you a master modeler. The model looks great. Was the model also from that time area (1963) Regards, Orion
  9. Hello Fuad, Excellent modelling in this scale. Regards, Orion.
  10. Hello Calun, The model is outstanding. Together with the story from the pilot, it all comes to live. I also visited your blog with all the models over the years. All very nice to have a deeper look at. Photography is also very professional. (By all your models). I appreciated all the time and effort in this article. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  11. Hello Bert, Always interesting to see aircraft of the Japanese Naval Air Arm on this website. Is this the same kind of type they used on their large subs? Thanks for sharing this model with us. Regards, Orion.
  12. Hello Alan, Excellent replica of the original one. As for the load out, I agree fully with you. Is is a hobby. Regards, Orion/The Netherlands.
  13. Hello Neil, Thanks for sharing this very remarkable AC with us. You did a marvelous job on this little gem. What a superb finish. Just recently finished the article referring to this type of aircraft during the war in Malta. Together with the Swordfish they were the first line of defense and strike capability from the RN. With the numerous defense cuts (in Europe) the ones on static display could be called on again. There is almost no hardware left over. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands

    Sea Vixen FAW.2

    Hi Quintilian, Britmodeller is the right place to find out all the do's and dont's. Go to search and ask for the Sea Vixen FAW2. You will be amazed what there is on offer. WIPS (Work in Progress) and many completed models by some of the best modelers around. Keep us informed by WIP reports on this site. Lots of succes. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
