  1. Whilst it might appear that I've become bogged down with trainers and Hawkers I find myself drawn back to a couple of Sixties machines of raw Avon power. For all the interest youthful Perdu took in Spitfires, Saviours of the Galaxy I've not been too attracted to Supermarine's Jet Power types so the Swift and the Scimitar are far below my radar horizon, so far they don't even have faint echoes. But I do love the awe-inspiring roar of the mighty Avon so this little pocket of my endeavours is providing space for fantasy and fiction. A while back, quite a while back I did build this But to be honest I didn't want to. No, no I don't mean I didn't want a Vixen, I didn't want an F.A.W.2. I wanted a F.A.W.1, sporting Firestreaks. Lovely jubbly. Anyway whilst building the F.A.W.2 I got hold of a second Frog kit in its guise as an Eastern Express moulding. Here's the very box of it. Now I know there are several, er shall we say deficiencies with the Frog version but it does not matter. This is what I have in my hands, needs building to begin a stash clearing exercise and it looks vaguely possible to amend the F.A.W.2 conversions given a stonking great razor saw and the faithful SIHRSC. And plasticard and Milliput. And reference to Tony's @The Baronmegabuild sketches and inspired leadership. Really can't go wrong can we? So a beginning, not quite a start. Top of the centre section: Those boom mounted tanks have to go Later. What's the inside like? Crivens, they're deep huh? Where to begin? Try to trap the shape. Those valleys are full of directional changes doh! Brace thyself lass. Another thing to consider, the kit canopy is also less than optimal. Unless there should be a stonking gurt air bubble in the clear bit. Yukkkky, see boys it isn't only Airfix that can 'compromise' clear parts. Now I have broken the ice consider this: Two becomes one 🎵 🎶 Also. Two Avons, check? Frog based kit, check? Extra unexpected difficulty? Check Pavla cockpit and a thing to shove down a hole to give depth. Well we'll see. Ciao baby.
