  1. That is a very smart Meteor and a smashing build of a relatively unknown aircraft.
  2. Alconbury is more industrial and housing estates now, it is sub-ordinate to Molesworth and while some of the infrastructure still remains it would take a massive investment to re activate.
  3. That is the bane of our lives at the moment, one minute it is fully open, then without warning temp traffic lights pop up(long waits) then shut altogether. On a plus side, you can see the new road from Whalebone Lane and the earth embankments either side are overflowing with poppies, looks amazing, I can only imagine that is what Flanders fields looked like.
  4. Glad you was working Bank Holiday because I was drinking your freshly delivered nectar... Just had a catch up, I kept dropping by to see if there was any movement and when I miss a week or two you pop up.. Love that paint scheme, it would look great against a deeps space background. Nice work as usual Pete.
  5. Thanks for the post Rob, sent a quick message.
  6. Looking good, you need to ' check six' your lad is behind you.....
  7. Welsh Models have just released the above kit, it is resin and white metal but no doubt up to Densil's usual high quality. While not everyones scale it is as far as I know the only full Avro Lincoln kit that is not Vac and decades old(and rare). Half tempted myself...
  8. Cracking job and some fine scratchbuilding. That must have been the easiest kill for the Sea Fury, that is also a great story.
  9. Wicked! One of my favourite American planes and one you have captured perfectly....clean, low and fast.
  10. That is superb and the jigs must have taken some work in themselves. Great internal work, fine painting and top notch scratchbuilding.
  11. Nice hairy stick work, buy him more kits as he aint alf good.
  12. I have signed up to the above group build and I want to break down the fence that is 'aircraft' and build something different. I know little of the Bulgarian military so could I ask the honorable members for their help in suggesting any models of Bulgarian military figures that are available since them joining Nato. Many thanks Gary.

  14. That 3rd to last picture is interesting Gary as it shows PA474 without her Mid Upper turret suggesting that she may yet not fully converted back to her previous bomber role. She left the Royal Collage of Aeronautics at Cranfield around 1965/66 and was transferred to storage but she was very heavily modified by men in white smocks so would need much time and effort to get her back to original condition as we enjoy her today.

  15. Fantastic paint work and nice to see a Corsair in different clothes. I am aware of the 'Football War' but not the details.
  16. Very tidy indeed and a Whirlwind it most certainly is.
  17. Glad you cleared that up, I had no idea.
  18. Not my normal playground but this is one party any self respecting modeller should not miss, NATO group build, lordy! the list is endless. I may even go for a military figure but I think I will give wingy things a miss this time around just to add a little variety. Count me in please. Now for the fun bit......tell me, tell me, which flag do I get?
  19. And he is off again, where he takes us nobody knows but the ride will be fun. I am curious what you will do with all 4 of those booms?
  20. Love an Auster so following this. There is some nice work going on here and not to be missed.
  21. I like the look of that, a Raptor not in grey.... Not familiar with the fit issues but good perseverance in knocking it into shape.
  22. Brilliant and I love how you move things around, your attention to detail is second to none.
  23. There is just about every mechanical vehicle ever made represented in one very tidy spaceship, even down to a canteen spoon.. That looks superb Pete and the colour is bang on the money, looking sharp in the sunlight and all those greeblies really bring it to life. Great build.
