  1. Hello all; I actually started this one well before the Spitfire I just put up, but I had to hold it while materials arrived through the Christmas break (which is when I built the Spitfire...). I had to learn a few scratch building skills on this one, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out, though there's some bits and pieces I'd do differently next time. Here's the RFI which is quite detailed - and wordy, you have been warned The aircraft modelled is an RAAF Huey, callsign "Bushranger 72". The RAAF converted their own Hueys to gunships after finding the American version unsuitable for RAAF operations. This airframe still exists, now housed in the Australian War Memorial. It was involved in several critical actions between 1969 and 1971. The son of one of SAS troops extracted in one of these actions, with the aid of the Bushrangers contacted me through my website and asked if I "built Hueys". He went on to explain that he wanted one to give to his dad. This model was built for that purpose. I'll put together the who story for the site, but in the mean time here's the photos. Cheers; Mark.
  2. AMP 1/48 Bristol Sycamore RAAF This is the recently released AMP 1/48 Bristol Sycamore built as an early Australian bird during operations in Woomera. Well this is somewhat of a record for me – a relatively new kit, built almost OOB including kit decals and finished in less than 5 years! Generally the AMP kit is nicely detailed with options for various versions. The kit includes a small etched fret with finer details. A comment, the plastic is very brittle and some of the smaller parts were broken and subsequently replaced with wire and plastic card. AMP is to be commended for providing a nice rendition of an important subject and it makes an interesting addition to the collection. Overall an enjoyable build with my only comment being to take your time and dry fit and dry fit some more. The glazing nose structure requires careful assembly and I used 5 minute epoxy and tape to get a reasonable fit. Cheers and regards, PJ
