  1. Ooooh, it looks great Simon. I agree that the standard wing tips look better, but the 'completionist' in me is glad to see an extended tip version built!
  2. It's looking good Simon! How do you like the KP kit so far?

    Laven's First P-38E in 1/72 #76

    Phew, I forgot what a beast this kit is. Well done Ed, it looks like a P-38!
  4. Fantastic collection Tony!
  5. Glad to see you back building Ben, your new employer should be paying you for this WIP.
  6. Congratulations on the job Ben, that's fantastic! Oh, and the Lynx looks great!

    Beautifully done!

    Catching Pictures in the Air

    Yes, waiting impatiently for the unmasking! Oh Tony, some advice that you obviously don't need: Vallejo Metal Color sprays fine over Alclad, and I used it to do some subtle post shading on High Speed silver Spitfires a while back.

    Laven's First P-38E in 1/72 #76

    Looking forward to this latest addition to your enviable 'Laven' collection Ed. I'm so glad to see that there is a resin replacement cockpit available, and it seems to fit! That was really the biggest thing putting me off building another RS P-38, so maybe there will be another in my future now. Great work so far, Ed!

    Red Bird (1/72 Academy IL-2 single-seater)

    Hey, that's some great work PC! The Il-2 is definitely iconic and you've captured it perfectly. Glad the fam is still giving you all kinds of heck, that's their job. Winston is a lucky guy, a hedgehog to pet, and that library to look forward to.

    Air Defense and Its Evaluation

    Hi Martin! Unfortunately, this one is still in a box, that is in a crate, that is in a storage facility somewhere in southern New Mexico. As soon as I get settled somewhere, this will be priority one! John @canberra kid will be best at answering this question. Apparently, the Italeri fuselage is a good length, but the rear portion is oddly shaped, and the wing leading edge is too far back. But even Canberra Kid has been willing to build one out-of-box, (and it looks great!), as well as a more intense effort in correcting the Italeri kit's flaws.

    A masterclass Tony, I've got the last few pages bookmarked for future reference. 'Argent Boxcar' could be an excellent band name, or the codename of an obscure '60's covert operation.

    Too many 1/72 Hobbyboss F-14 Tomcats

    Another amazing result Tony, this is definitely the definitive Tomcat (and Felix) thread!
  14. Well deserved Tony, what a wonderful collection!
