  1. Excellent little 504N, JW! I've always wanted to do a Greek one - I believe they were still in service at the beginning of the Second World War also. What some people may not know is that a few 504s were impressed into RAF service during the Second World War. Your 16th model?! I won't even say how many I've completed so far this year... Regards, Jason
  2. I don't know about the accuracy of the old Frog kit, but she certainly looks the part - good job, Pat! Regards, Jason
  3. Och, Ewan McTeagle, what a genius! And his masterpiece, the grand 'What's 20 quid to the Bank of Bloody Midland?'. Step aside Robert Burns! Back to the Barracuda - I remember building this kit many aeons years ago. Nice to see someone else having a go at her. I've always liked the Barracuda, either because of or despite her rather 'interesting' looks I've never been able to decide. Best of luck getting her to the finish line, Pat! Regards, Jason

    The Su-57 are arriving

    Probably so, Sarge. It's actually rather silly to get into arguments over aircraft. I should leave my arguments for my books, where I'm always right and I always get the last word! Best Regards, Jason

    Excuse me, you'll have to explain this. What exactly are you trying to say? Are you saying my post is laughable? Or not? If so, then please collect your thoughts and tell me why it is so. Thank you. Best Regards, Jason

    I seem to have hit a bit of a nerve here. Good. Jason

    What this basically means is that the Russians get to keep the money they would have wasted on the Su-57, to spend it on more worthwhile projects, whilst the U.S. is continuing to bleed money out of all orifices trying to make the F-35 into at least a minimally reliable and effective combat aircraft. Of course the U.S. is selling it to other countries, such as the UK, but how much of that is of the 'making an offer they can't refuse' is hard to tell. And with the current American administration, such efforts may not now be so successful, as the U.S. becomes a less that reliable ally. Regards, Jason
  10. Lovely builds; I especially like the Vietnam version! Regards, Jason

    HK Lancaster ?.

    Time to start saving up. Regards, Jason
  12. In fact I'd love to see it in 1/32nd scale, but I asked on their Facebook page if they were thinking about doing it in the real One True Scale (1/72nd scale for you 1/48th scale heathens!), and it sounds like they are. As I said, in whatever scale, it's always nice to see WWII Soviet aeroplanes. Now how about a new-mould Il-4 in 1/72nd scale... Regards, Jason
  13. Very nice! Great to see this - always brilliant to see Soviet GPW aircraft in any scale. However, I'll have to put in my plea for them to also downscale this to the One True Scale. Regards, Jason

    Nice Foxbat! Those unusual roundels rather set it off. Regards, Jason

    A very understanding wife !!

    Perhaps even two sheds (with apologies, as always, to Monty Python). I'll be impressed when he builds some 1:1 scale models to go along with the pilots (I'm difficult to impress, although I do like that Belgian F-104). Regards, Jason
