I spent some times to create a landing light cover….

Aaaaaand ???

WP_20190512_23_19_20_Pro

I did'nt put it on its place at the right time….

Now that will be funnier with the guns, rocket and U/C doors ….

Yesterday was the historic rally !! I get to my colleague's house situated on the track !!

It was fun ! TR-7, A-110, A full load od Escort, Ascona and Manta !!

We have had some ammos with us !!

Hello Dears,

Let's bring this thread to its completion !!

Now that the firefly join the Seafire, let's get back to this one !!

WP_20190619_22_36_49_Pro

The corsair is a huge fighter, but the Barracuda is a torpedo bomber...

That will be a big one huh !!

WP_20190619_20_51_37_Pro

There will be some work on this one too !!

Now wich one will join the Corsair MkII first ??

Barracuda ? or Gannet Hellcat ??

See you later friends !! 

Have a great modelling time !!

My Dad was an electrician of Seafires & Barracudas.  Was also trained on Corsairs.  April '45..

wow !! Now that's a background !!

Trained on Corsairs in April '45 ? so He was readied for the BPF ??

Having your kit judged by someone who has worked on the real thing !! 

It should a kind of stress, is'nt it ??

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

The compass was too low, so I carefully get it out !

WP_20190713_22_24_15_Pro

The seat is starting to look the part !

WP_20190713_22_30_36_Pro

Hello Dears,

Well, Corsair and Hellcat are done... Even if these 2 brutes did'nt deserve the name of perfect Ladies...

To me the one with the bent wings is ...

It's about time to finish the Tungsten serie...

I lost my mojo a bit when I saw that the Barracuda was so empty...

Then the Brengun transkit did'nt help for that matter !

Well, I start the ribbing !!

IMG_20200614_001600

Still, I mish mashed this kit...

There will be an Accurate miniature bomb under the SH Barrcuda !

IMG_20200614_002550

Aaaand eduard bomb hung under an ICM Mustang...

My good Lady is fascinated by the sundown... And take some great piccies...

Here's an example...

Have a great modelling sunday !!

And good father day to all the father among you all !!

Sincerely.
