    VF-103 F-4Js at Nellis

    Lovely set of pictures with weathering to suit everyone. Aircraft 202 looks absolutely stunning in the sunlight. Peter

    Revell 1/48 F-86D Sabre Dog

    Beautiful finish, very impressed. One of those "why didn't I think of that" models. Cheers
  4. Yep! does it for me, very nice indeed. It will be interesting to see any loadout you may put on her. Peter
  5. Wow! What more can you say? This is the second Wee Fergie i've seen today, they just keep getting better. Peter

    Ferguson Petit Gris - Heller 1/24

    Most impressive in fact it''s stunning! I wish that I had half the skill to get anywhere near the finish displayed on both these models. Sometimes I have to admit that i'm looking at something special. Peter
  7. Hello Jamie This is so different I will just have to watch. Never thought that i'd have any interest in a grey funnel line ship, but there ya go! Peter

    What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    Merlin engined Spitfire passed over Dunning, Perthshire 16:45 ish. Going east, possibly to Scone or Dundee but could be anywhere. Not a scooby where it came from other than the west. First one i've ever seen, out of an airshow environment. Peter

    Too many 1/72 Hobbyboss F-14 Tomcats

    Tony The fact that they are 72nd makes them more impressive to me. I didn't take in the size of the paints etc to give me the scale. As I said.....just wasn't observant, in the jungle i'd be dinner. I stick to 72nd for space reasons as well. I wholeheartedly agree regarding bog standard squadron aircraft, (not just F-14s) there just aren't enough. No doubt the manufacturers will have sussed that CAG aircraft etc catch the eye and sell more. I don't know if it is the same story with British aircraft and squadrons, others will know that answer.I suppose that we should be pleased with the choice of kit manufacturers that are available. Though I do like a wee grumble! Cheers, Peter

    Too many 1/72 Hobbyboss F-14 Tomcats

    Tony 24 pages later it has finally dawned on me that these Tomcats are 72nd. Always just assumed they were 48th, observant or what? Have to go back to the start and re-read it all, in a different light. Peter

    Lovely scheme, well executed, you can be justifiably proud of that one. Peter

    Welcome to the Jungle – RA-5C Vigilante - completed

    Though not my scale, I will definitely be following this one. The mid sixties experimental jungle schemes for USN aircraft has always held a bit of fascination for me. Good luck with the build, not something to be taken lightly I would imagine. The size alone, makes it daunting to me. Peter
  15. If I had a hat, I'd take it off to you. What a lovely rendition of such an iconic aircraft. Well it's iconic IMHO, you can be justifiably proud of that model. Peter
