That looks wonderful. I hadn't been following as it was not my scale but that was a mistake & now I've read this right through, a real treat, with some great modelling on display. :)

These scratch-built Rb-04 FBMs are an impressive model in their own right

Well as Col noted above, these RB04s have been a bit of a labour but I'm pleased with the result. They deserve their own post. Well along with the funky green sidewinders

Not quite 'from the box' but what is in the box is enough to make a good model without a load of resin.

Thanks to the Mods and for all the other helpful comments along the way. Its been great to have the input from the Nordic Britmodellers to help with the fine details.

Especially thanks to Tricky Rich for building this last year and giving me the inspiration to get on and build it.

Wow, fantastic!

Funky green Sidewinders you say?

:D

 

look at your really funky green plane first ;)

 

those are BLIND training rounds... what about the RB04s? Are they live rounds, I suppose?

well done Colin a superb job, and as you can now see really worth the effort! :thumbsup:

 

They are certainly a scene stealer in any group of models.

 

I'm glad you enjoyed the build (and that I inspired you to have a go), it was great to follow and I have a feeling you really enjoyed the experience as well. Again, well done mate! :thumbsup:
