Perhaps even two sheds (with apologies, as always, to Monty Python). I'll be impressed when he builds some 1:1 scale models to go along with the pilots (I'm difficult to impress, although I do like that Belgian F-104).

 

Regards,

 

Jason

Nor would I, that's just creepy.  Especially the grin on that one nearest the bed - sends shivers down my spine.

If I had to sleep in that bedroom, I really would want to make sure that F16 driver was a dummy, that look on his his face is seriously disconcerting. I wonder if he spent an earlier career modelling leather goods?. Model cabinets are stuff with really nice looking stuff though.

Looks like he needs a larger cabinet... and if things get a little crazy possibly a bigger bed!!! 

 

Agree, the models looks fabulous and really do need more display space to show them off. Someone has also mentioned it above, however all the manikins have a kind of female look about them - perhaps he is secretly working on that ‘other’ gender? 

 

Cheers.. Dave 

 

p.s - Forgot to mention, your mates mad as hell.

You mean a hangar........... room for expansion!

I'm guessing second hand female mannequins are easier to acquire than male................... or some other reason!

Nice models.

Perhaps he should swap out the Belgian F-16 pilot with the F-8 pilot, then it would at least be in keeping with this, Major Karen Vandenbroucke, Belgian Air Force.

Please help....

 

I have just spent 10 minutes on Hannants website searching for "understanding wife". Looking for one, preferably in 1:1 scale.....

 

Even using the advanced search function, it still comes up with "There are no results for this search. Please search again".

 

Does anyone know another stockist?
