  1. This is my rendition of the Welsh Models' Boeing P-8A Poseidon. I always thought of the 737, which the Poseidon is based on, as a small airliner, but this thing is huge. Because it is so large they made the fuselage vacu-form while the rest of is is resin. Even so it is still pretty heavy. With the exception of the landing gear all the resin was excellent with nice detail. It was a lot of work with a lot of sanding, but I think it came out pretty well. A few notes. They give you 3 options for the cockpit. There is a vacu-formed transparency that contains all the window and the fuselage has indentation for where the can go that you can open up. They also give you a decal for the windows. You can either cut out the individual windows and place them in the openings, You can cut the large transparency in half and glue each half to each fuselage half. Or you can fill in the openings and use the decal. They actually include a decent interior, so I chose the second of these and glued the transparency halves into the fuselage halves and detailed the interior. Unfortunately even though I carefully glued the halves in after closing up the fuselage one side of windows popped out, or I should say in and disappeared into somewhere in the interior. I did a lot of soul searching and looking at what you could actually see of the interior I decided to close up the opening and use the decal. The only other issue was the main gear. I seem to recall reading a review that said the gear was white medal, but in my kit they were resin and crudely cast at that. And they are just not up the the task of supporting the weight. I should have replaced the main strut with brass rod, but instead I spent a lot of time repairing them. At some point they will probably collapse and then I will replace them. The decals are printed in Australia and they are excellent. Very thin but strong enough not to tear easily. They did have a tendency to wrinkle and fold, but were easily straightened and snuggled down and the film disappeared with only minimal solvent. But enough of me and on to the pictures. Next up is a Skunkmodels' RQ-9 Reaper. Enjoy

  4. Norway have decided to replace it's aging 6 P-3 Orion's with 4 P-8 Poseidon. They have signed an intensional deal worth 11 billion NOK. About time they did this. The Orion is a workhorse, but age is showing. Cheers Ørjan
