Hello Dears This is not really a WiP since both the 2 ladies has been started 2 years ago ! The Rhino has appeared in some other threads and she is about to enter the paint booth ! Now this kit has a story behind it ! A friend of mine offer that Phantom as a thanking gift ! I was on patrol with my van on a highway, I still was in the access and saw a motorcycle speeding away. A few yards further I saw a car stopped on the left lane (We are on the continent !!) Then I saw the biker a good 50 yards ahead of the car, lying on the ground but did'nt see the motorcycle ! Cursing a lot, I call on the Ambulance and Highway patrol, as we are trained for urgent help, I go to see if I can help the biker. Lord, His leg was in such a poor state, but he looked almost good. But with the integral helmet I did'nt recognize him, My van was placed in protection, I looked at the wound, reporting it to the ambulance by the cell phone The biker then wake up, or retake conscience, and call me by my name… That's a schock Believe me !! It was my friend, I refused to get the helmet out, not knowing if he have a wound to the head… And I stay beside him until he was transported in the ambulance. After his recovery, he asked casually about my next buy of kit and I received it ! The only weird thing is that he told me that, When he opened his eyes, feeling that someone was taking care of him, I looked to him like an angel !!! Me ??? An angel ?? With my face ?? Incredible and … Yes… Weird ! Don't you worry about Thierry, he was still Walking with crutch when he did buy another bike !! Oh and we found the bike a good 100 yards ahead of the crash point, jammed Under the barriers !! Now back to the model ! I included a complete Aires interior, it has been deemed impossible by a French model magazine, So... I did it, but it's not easy a task, Believe me ! But it look far better ! Be carefull ! Aires gave us 2 types of interior, one can do a B or J Phantom The Wheel well must be re-created And of course !! It will be a Jolly Rogers one ! I must confess that I have in my stash each and any aircraft flown by the 'Blackburn's irregulars" So this one will not be too surprising ??? Huh ??? Load of job and the doc are precious, especially for the Air intakes Who was talking about that plaster looking Tamiya white paint ??? Ok, I'll be back soon, I go to prepare the meal, pretty simple today !! some Cordon bleu with belgian fries ! HP saus for me !! Have a great modelling time ! Sincerely. CC
