  1. Hi James Another option might be to look for promotional images from various NATO exercises or deployments, for instance the Baltic Air Policing mission.
  2. The consequences of testing the depth of mud with both feet at the same time. In some ways the scene has a slight post-apocalyptic feel to it ...
  3. It's always easier to suggest that someone else tries to do it rather than doing it yourself (unintended pun) - could you source some plastic pipe from your local DIY or plumber's supplier and scratch build a larger scale missile. Using some dimensions taken from the web, a 1/48 scale Polaris A3 would have a diameter of 28.5 mm and an overall length of 205 mm; the corresponding dimensions for a 1/32 scale missile are 42.8 mm and 308 mm.
  4. Looks very effective and utilitarian, it would probably make a very potent ground attack/close support platform.

    Face palm

    That would be the Rivet Joint which was subsequently abbreviated to "Rivet", at least it merited a mention: the Phenom and Texans completed their flypast without comment - poor Huw was probably busy looking through his notes trying to work out what they were,
  6. Definitely looking like a proper aircraft now - have you thought ahead to what colour scheme you are going to finish it in Rob ? Isn't that one of the normal tests to check whether your build is on its way to being completed ?
  7. No doubt it's mother would still love it. Curious whether it would have been as effective an operational platform as the Sentry if the "boffins" had been able to resolve its development issues.
  8. Will confess to sometimes feeling bossed around by the domestic beagles when I was younger (all three of them) but not intimidated
  9. Robert Griffin's Kagero book on the Chieftain is a very useful and well written reference. If I could offer a second slightly "left of field" suggestion: Chieftains by Bob Forrest-Webb, although it's a work of fiction it tells the story of a Soviet attack on Europe, primarily through the eyes of a Chieftain Tank crew.
  10. An excellent replica of a "little ship" at work which is full of character and lifelike details; it could easily hold its own against a similar kit built model of a Capital Ship in any display cabinet. Looking forward to following your next build.
  11. 1/72nd scale modelling at its best and a finished kit to be proud of. I think the one detail which competes the scene is the very credible load of inert/training munitions which you would probably expect to see the aircraft carrying during routine training operations.
  12. The Kinetic kits are a good choice for first generation Harriers, another option may be the Hasegawa Harrier GR Mk. 7/9 or AV-8B kits - Revell also produced a reboxed version of the RAF Harrier. Hope this helps.
  13. Sad news, a very talented composer and musician. Another favourite, this time with long time collaborator Jon Anderson
