  1. Nice! I've often thought about a whiffer with a nose intake and over-under turbojets similar in arrangement to the EE Lightning.

    AW101 Merlin HM2

    That's a top result! You've managed to pick up the subtle variation in greys you were after. It certainly looks the part. Never seen a Merlin up close, but the Royal Australian Navy and USN choppers I've seen on various ships definitely have that same look. 'Aftermarket' equipment scabbed on too. They must take a hammering from salt and weather.

    Heller 1/72 P-39Q

    Oh that's nice! I'm a fan of some of those Heller kits. My first kit back into the modelling world after a long hiatus, was a Heller Super Etendard.

    Finished: OOB 1/72 TA-7C

    Top result! HobbyBoss kit I'm guessing? I have a soft spot for the twin-tub Corsair.
  5. You're correct, the Airfix kit is indeed a nice kit, and you've achieved a top result with your model. The 1960s/70s/80s jets are probably my favourite subject.
  6. Phabulous result!

    Gannet AEW

    Nice Gannet! I like the AEW variant. The blue and red roundel on that colour scheme looks really good. The radars themselves have quite a history - Avenger/Skyraider/Gannet or something! How's the Sword kit?

    ICM 1:48 P-51A Mustang

    Top result! There's no real right or wrong when it comes to paint. I'm guessing planes in wartime were faded and repainted or just touched up here and there, as and when the opportunity arose when in the out in the field. And as for weathering, it's anyone's guess!

    Airfix 1/72 Short Stirling

    Top result. It actually goes to show you don't need to spend money on the latest kit and all sorts of aftermarket stuff to get a cracking model of a classic aeroplane! Bonza!

    Original Seaking mk1

    Top result! Space has always dictated that if I did a chopper, I'd need to fold the rotors. This is very inspiring indeed...
  11. Top result! How sturdy is it? I've often considered using card models for background terrain on the wargaming board, as well as aircraft, but they need to be somewhat durable...

    Airfix F14 Tomcat 1/72

    Brilliant! Gotta love a good result from an unloved kit.
  13. That's a really good looking Phantom
