  1. 62 missions in Catalinas! I know that they wete long missions. A fitting tribute to an inspiring figure, and a nice memorial for those left. DennisTheBear
  2. Alas I don't have this in my stash but I widh I did. Beautifil rendititin of this ungainly looking aeroplane! DennisTheBear
  3. Welcome Rob! Why not go exclusively 1/72, like intetwar US Navy? 1/72 aircraft, 1/72 USS Langley...ohhh that might be a bit big.. No matter what you model you'll find someone here who can help! DennisTheBear
  4. Noice! Gives me hope that mine will turn out as nicely. DennisTheBear
  5. Just found a news story on a reel of colour film found in a QANTAS facility. Shows the Empire flying boats along with refuelling, infrastructure, and other interesting aspects in the late 1930s. Thought I'd post the link to the news story if it hasn't been done already. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-15/qantas-celebrates-centenary-with-bygone-era-flying-boat-film/12881604 DennisTheBear
  6. The half Spitfire might be beyond restoration but not beyond use, me thinks. Salvage any parts that can be used in future restoration even if it involves individual panels that can be cut out. Just like the real thing! DennisTheBear
  7. Welcome aboard from (usually) sunny North Queensland, home of too hot to do it today. BM rocks in the model world! DennisTheBear
  8. Need to be signed in to see the Flickr page.
  9. Looking very nice! It'll look outstanding in Cuban livery. DennisTheBear
  10. Richard Turner's book is called (IIRC) 'Mustang Pilot' and is s good read. I have markings for his P-51B and P-51D-5 albeit in 1/72. Hope I can make mine look even half as goof as yours. DennisTheBear
  11. Gives me hope for the one in my stash (in a 1975 box). When I finally get to spend some at home I might even get it started. DennisTheBear
  12. Your usual superb quality @Fuad! I kniw when I finally get one of these it will look like a toy next to your expert example. DennisTheBear
  13. Oh niiicccee! Well built and nicely finished! DennisTheBear
