  1. Okay folks. This is going to be a combined WIP with my good friend and neighbour Shoey. Shoey's grandfather Ron Gibson (Papa) flew the MkIIc in Burma with 11 Squadron. Ron served with distinction in Burma flying his "Buccaneer" Hurribomber all year round (even through the monsoon season) and survived the conflict earning a D.F.C. R.H. Gibson D.F.C. now lives quietly in Adelaide South Australia....a very much loved and admired member of his family. For this build I am making a Revell 1:72 Burma Hurricane (I actually had one in the stash before knowing the story) with modified markings to depict exactly Ron's aircraft. Shoey is going to add something different. Being an RC enthusiast he is going to finish a full flying version of his grandfathers aircraft again with modified markings. The basic plane is built but together we're going for some extra authenticity with some of the paint finishes, weathering and panel lines So that's it. It's a two for one deal (one small static plastic one and one huge composite flying version).......and we both hope to do Ron justice with our efforts. More to come soon..... I think I have model envy already Ha Ha!

  5. Hi May I first introduce myself. My name is Jason. I was told many a story of my Grandad who was killed in action during the late end of WW2 while serving for the Royal Navy that I became transfixed with the thought of doing the same when I grew up. During my childhood I learnt to swim, first under water then on the surface and I loved the feeling of the freedom of being beneath the surface, so a submariner I would become. During my early teens I joined the Sea Cadets as an introduction and hoped to join the regular service upon leaving school. But this was stopped as I failed the medical upon application following a motorbike accident, which I suffered a blood clot to the brain and was told although treated and cured I would not be able to deep dive.. Since then I have lead a full and fruitful life on the work front from working for others to owning my own company's. But in spare time the Navy was never far from my mind so I built model ships and submarine kits. Later to become more radio controlled rather than static. I have followed the Astute Submarine project for a number of years and always thought I would love to build a Radio Control Model version of Astute but could not as one did not exist. In 2012 I sold my last company and dedicated my time to create a Radio Control Model version of Astute and upon completion by using a mold I have made mass produce the model and sell to the general public, and calling the Company Astute Models. I do not have a website as yet as still in the building stage, your more than welcome to leave comments and follow on here or on any of my social media sites. https://www.youtube.com/user/Asutemodels Look forward to comments and sharing with you updates as they happen. Jason
