When I started making 1/48 scale kits I started with a Canberra PR.9 and painted her in grey / green camo. A Hunter and Lightning followed, also in grey/green. This theme developed until I had a Tornado, Jaguar, Harrier, Hawk and a Phantom. That only left a Buccaneer todo but they were difficult to get hold of and expensive. Then I realised that Italeri did a Hercules - wrap around grey/green it had to be! I couldn’t do the trainers in camo, so red and white for a second Hawk, Jet Provost and a scratch built Dominie. Then this year produced the new Chipmunk kit which quickly got added. Leaving just the Buccaneer to do which I finished a few weeks back. Now I can’t think of any further regular kits of RAF aircraft from this period with the exception of the Tarangus Bulldog. I could do with a Jet Provost T5 but that’s about it. I could, with unlimited funds that I don’t have, get a 3D printed Vulcan, Victor and Andover. But that’s not likely. I do, however, have a Sanger a form Shackelton to build. The quality of them is, er, variable! I was learning along the way! Some have bits of after market, most are out of the box. Some have lights and two have motorised props. Anyway, this is how they look I couldn’t leave the non-grey/green ones out though. So added in a Tornado F3, couple of grey Phantoms, a grey Jaguar and a green Harrier GR.5 So there we have it. I still have another FGR2 to build, plus the Shack. And must get a Bulldog. But that’s my 80s RAF
