Images from the rather vast military museum in the centre of Brussels. The aircraft hall is impressive, but some of the machines are run down and desperately need attention, and a good clean. Caravelle. Europe 422 Maurice Farman MF.11. Europe 423 Meteor and Spitfire. Europe 424 Spad XIII. Europe 425 Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter. Europe 426 Ju 52/3mg3e. Europe 427 C-119. Europe 428 RAF RE.8.

Just pulled this from the stash. Success rate has been a bit hit & miss in past blitzbuilds. Plan to build it in two 12hr session starting Saturday, finishing Sunday whilst following the; One Day Cricket final at Lords (Go Hampshire) The Giro The Monaco GP Indy 500 Super League Magic Weekend (Go Rhinos) Decision taken to complete as the Belgian option as it only has three main colours (Dark Green and Dark Brown over Aluminium) as opposed to the RAF option that uses 5.
Built for a recent club competition, this is the 1/72 Revell F-16 finished off using Daco decals. I've had the decals in the stash for more years than I care to remember, but I'm pleased to report that they worked well enough to sneak this into third place. Standard walkaround shots : Thanks for looking. Mike
Seen on July 21st, 2016, at their Beauvechain homebase, ready for the National Day flypast, some Belgian Air Component SIAI SF.260M/D Marchettis. Following a decision attributed to the - now just retired - Belgian Defence Chief of Staff, Air Force General G. Van Caelenberge, all the SF.260D (ST-40 to ST-48) are to receive a grey livery. These trainers are also operated by the HQ & Staff pilots for their flying hours. Wagging tongues report that they prefer to fly in grey than in yellow birds as they're fighters not student pilots. The yellow SF.260M Marchetti (ST01 to ST-36) are mainly dedicated to the basic flying training mission while the red ones are those from the Red Devils display team (https://www.facebook.com/Red-Devils-Belgium-162829870444088/).

The 1st Wing emblem is a Wolf head. V.P.
