    Douglas CC-129

    My build for this GB will be a Douglas CC-129. CC-129 was the designation given by the Royal Canadian Air Force. The kit is from Airfix, the Dakota Mk.IV boxing. Decals are from Xtradecal sheet X72207, representing CC-129 No 927, which is now preserved and on display in the Alberta Aviation Museum. Let's look at the sprues. Look at all that wonderful Airfixy goodness!

    Looking forward to seeing this come together.

    I tried to get The Stash organised on a spreadsheet but it didn't work out. Besides, I like being surprised by what's in there...

    Plain Jane Hawk

    I'm a little freaked out that the subject of my build is more than forty years old!!!

    More Jet Provosts

    Indeed it is! Both colour schemes in the kit match the schemes in the old Matchbox Strikemaster kit, which makes them very appealing. Luckily I have a couple more of this kit in The Stash.

    That is my plan. It's going to need some nifty scheduling on my Excel spreadsheet. Yes... I am that sad!!!

    Well, my build threads are up. I'm trying to keep my natural impulses in check, especially after my psychotic break in the Grumman GB. Most of my builds are in the classic RAF training scheme, so I'm a bit concerned that The Stash has thrown up some alternatives for that scheme: Airfix Bulldog Airfix Tucano AZ Model Chipmunk Airfix Gnat Xtrakit Hunter T.7 Revell Hunter F.6 S&M Models Canberra T4 My other build in this GB is a T-2C Buckeye in the USN training scheme. Other kits in The Stash which could be built in this scheme include: Wolfpack T-45 Goshawk Sword T2V Seastar Sword FJ-3 Fury Fujimi TA-4J Skyhawk And then I see that @rafalbert is building an Alpha Jet. I've always wanted to build one of those! And I have one in The Stash. I'm just gonna stop looking at The Stash. It's not doing me any good...

    More Jet Provosts

    Here's where things could start getting out of hand. As I am building a plain jane Hawk elsewhere in this GB, I thought it might be nice to build another aircraft in the classic RAF training scheme. The Airfix 1/72 Jet Provost 3 is a lovely little kit which I have built previously as an Venezuelan aircraft. It would look great in the RAF scheme. So I dived into The Stash to find the kit I knew I had. At that point I entered dangerous waters... Before I found the Airfix JP3, I found a Sword Strikemaster... which can easily be built as a Jet Provost 5. I have no self control...

    T-2C Buckeye

    My second build for this GB is the 1/72 Wolfpak T-2C Buckeye. I'm very taken with the USN training scheme, having just completed a F9F-8T Cougar wearing the scheme in the recent Grumman GB. So I thought I'd have another crack at it. Unfortunately the aircraft provided on the kit decal sheet are all 21st century examples, so I'll be using Two Bobs decal sheet 72-088 to build an aircraft from 1980.

    Plain Jane Hawk

    My first build for this GB is an Airfix 1/72 Hawker Siddeley Hawk T.1. It's definitely a Hawker Siddeley Hawk, as XX164 was the third production Hawk, built in 1976 before the formation of British Aerospace. The first Hawks delivered to the RAF were painted in the training scheme which I always thought was quite plain, hence the title of this thread. Since then I've come to appreciate the scheme more in part because I've found that it's actually quite difficult to paint satisfactorily due to the chance of the red bleeding into the white areas. This model will use decals from Xtradecal sheet X72166 to represent Hawk T.1 XX164 of the Central Flying School, based at RAF Valley in 1977.

    'cos, like... y'know... no-one's interested in trainers!!! There are some really interesting projects in this GB.

    Miles Master Magna Models

    Watching this one! I have the MkII version from Magna in The Stash, so I'm very interested in this one.

    Deeds Not Words Revisited

    I usually go a little overboard with nose ballast as I'm always scared to get a tailsitter. The instructions recommend 20g. I've used 40...

    It would have helped if I'd mentioned that, wouldn't it? This one. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X48191
