  1. Try looking online for images from the Wasa museum - it's superb and only one of Stockholm's many fantastic museums. There's a large scale model of Wasa at the museum as launched, so it shows the original painting (as near as can be figured out), and there are colour reproductions of many of the statues.




    and yes, looking at the real thing you can see she was doomed from the start, far too narrow in the beam.

    Has anybody done a Sud-Est SE.200 Amphitrite? Swastikas will help it sell (sadly). 1/144 might be a better scale though.

    Thanks John W. 

    Well guys here's the pilot, with what I thought was a small dog which turns out to be (after looking closely at the box) a grey and white cat!



    I'll sort out some staged photo's tomorrow with plane and pilot.


    I think the dog flew the plane? (curse you Red Baron!)

    How about turning the high-tail "V" upside down too? You might get an Angel Interceptor to dock onto it and refuel that way. So that's one Victor, three Angel Interceptors, one Thunderbird Two, bespoke Captain Scarlet decals..............it's adding up!


    🎵 Cap-tain Scar-let, dun, dun, dun, du dudda dum........🎶


    Turn the tail into a true V-tail, it will look great. Might be a bit small though - extend the roots, or how about slap on another pair of Conways a la TU-22?

  5. Hopefully it's not too late but the kit turrets are too shallow, they need to be made higher. Gluing a sheet of plastic card to the roof does the trick nicely. AOTS Belfast shows their proportions correctly.

    TBH there's lots of other minor issues and the WEM PE isn't 100% right either, watch out for the rear superstructure ladders and check AOTS. But its a great fun build.
