  1. Hi all, here is the third installment of 'pictures edited in lock down', this time from the amazing National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola which I was lucky enough to visit during November 2018. Sadly the tour of the storage area wasn't available that day as the volunteer who drives the buggy was unwell, which meand I'll just have to go again I took loads of shots which are all here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/65364952@N06/albums/72157703428076121/page1 SabreLiner by tony_inkster, on Flickr B-25 Mitchell by tony_inkster, on Flickr SeaKing by tony_inkster, on Flickr A-4 Skyhawk (Blue Angels) by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-14 Tomcat by tony_inkster, on Flickr Bearcat by tony_inkster, on Flickr Douglas SBD Dauntless by tony_inkster, on Flickr AF-2S Guardian by tony_inkster, on Flickr RF-8 Crusader by tony_inkster, on Flickr S-3 Viking 'Navy One' by tony_inkster, on Flickr CH-53 Sea Stallion by tony_inkster, on Flickr F7U Cutlass (2) by tony_inkster, on Flickr F3H Demon by tony_inkster, on Flickr TV-2 T-33 Shooting Star by tony_inkster, on Flickr A-1 Skyraider by tony_inkster, on Flickr F11F Tiger by tony_inkster, on Flickr Photo Banshee by tony_inkster, on Flickr F2H Banshee by tony_inkster, on Flickr Prowler by tony_inkster, on Flickr
  2. Vought F7U-1 Cutlass NAS Patuxent River & USS Midway, 1951 ‘Aurora’ is one of those names that have a mystical, nostalgic feel. It seems like the remaining Aurora kits are stocked in unknown dusty attics across the world. Imagine then my excitement when I came across one on sale for fiver on a stand at the Northolt Families day last year. What to do with it now? Shall I see what I can get on e-bay, put it in my own attic for a few more years....or maybe just built it !!! Yeah – just built it. This is what you get in the box: A few gigantic rivets and a pilot’s head in the cockpit was standard fare in the late 50s / early 60s. I was tempted to just put it together as-is, but the thought of getting decals to go down over those rivets made me decide to sand them all off. Control surface demarcations were raised, of course, so they had to be scribed back in. I had originally thought of leaving Jo Pilot in the cockpit, but the canopy shape was just so horribly wrong that I decided to mould a new one and along with that would be opening up the cockpit. I only put some very basic details and an approximate seat in there. There are all kinds of short cuts and dodgy shapes overall, but I thought I would leave it to keep something of the old Aurora character. That included the solid wheel wells and the original kit undercarriage, incredibly basic though it is (though eventually I did replace the torque links). Decals were the next issue. The kit ones were very, very yellowed. I liked the chosen scheme though, and found this photo of it: I found some replacement decals from Techmod, and they went on well. The small Bureau Number decal in front of the air intake was from the kit decal sheet to retain a link to the original! I wouldn’t want to do one of these again for a while, but it’s nice to have such a nostalgic model in the collection.
