Happy Christmas & Happy New Year to everyone on Britmodeller!

I'm issuing no apologies for not appearing very often on Britmodeller, I keep getting asked to do build threads, but I just get more carried away with the modelling and forget to take the progress pics! So I just get wheeled out at xmas like some tatty decoration!

More Nato Tiger Meet subjects from me! Also I was inspired by an article in some military aviation mag on the Columbian Air Force Kfir's so I ordered the new TC12 conversion set from John of Scaleworx. Something you don't see very often & I think they look pretty cool in that dark grey.

 

AMK/Scaleworx 1/72 Kfir C7 converted to a Columbian AF TC.12 with the Scaleworx resin conversion set. Thanks John if your looking!

As a spotter I was annoyed that I didn't get round to seeing this when it visited Mildenhall in 2018, so I had to try & find a decal sheet for it. And found this Wolfpak sheet.

Also it fit in with a "D-Day specials" modern fighters theme. I had intended to do one of the Lakenheath F-15 Heritage jets but was too late in the year to finish it.

Italeri 1/72 A-10C 107FS Red Devils 100th D-Day Special - Wolfpak decals from Fantasy Printshop. They have loads of really interesting subjects that can't be found elsewhere. I also scratch built a new telescopic ladder for it out of brass tube.

One final edit as I have only just completed this Airfix 1/72 Vampire T.11 as a Swiss Air Force T.55 MFS 88 Emmen 1990 Last Of The Vampires using decals from the Xtradecal sheet.

special/anniversary schemes are often demanding, congrats, lovely work :clap:

Cheers mate, I suppose they can be. A few more are planned including a retirement Mirage IV & a D-Day F-15E.

Thanks for your comment, much appreciated!

Excellent work Martin with some good photography. Fortunately, we can see them through the year at the club meets and not wait 'till the end of the year.

All the best for 2020.
