Thread for the land down under !! Vengeance and Wirraway And Boomerang !!


Recommended Posts

Well Gents !!

I know !! I know !! But this one is also induced by Roger !!

Let's start by this !!

Even if don't come from Brussels...

6ft tall Okay almost right..

Full of muscles, Well I was ...

This thread is a bit different from the other as it's not dedicated to an aircraft, but to an Air Force...

Guess which one ???:rofl2::rofl2:

Even if I have some others Aussies in some other thread....

I'm now answering my friend @Dunny

 

Moons ago, I commit this one...

 

WP_20170626_23_49_09_Pro

and her next island cousin...

WP_20171102_10_18_35_Pro

Let's have a look at these ones...

Far less sexy than a spitfire... Bent wing too but not as harmonious than a Corsair...

Enter the modelling nightmare...

IMG_20201011_215731

Sprue shots...

IMG_20201011_215829 IMG_20201011_215926

The fuselage is not correct and hard to repair, so I bought this !!

IMG_20201011_220031 IMG_20201011_220049

Here are the differents paint scheme...

IMG_20201011_220525

And I will do this one...

IMG_20201011_220531

I surely suffer rfom a rare and accute form of masochism...

Second AZ kit... :wall: and I add a resin fuselage to it !! :fool::fool:

Mad as Hell !!

 

But why choosing such an easy road ???

Let's add this one...

IMG_20201011_220253 IMG_20201011_220326 IMG_20201011_220349 IMG_20201011_220623

And I will receive some help from this...

IMG_20201011_234851

In fact, I was on to start a Boomerang... And I was almost sure that I had one in my stash...

But No !! Incredible, sad but true !!

So, I now search for a Boomerang to add her on this thread plus some other ones... Who know !!

 

Well Gents !! Feel free to post pics of these 2 beast if you have some...

Note that this thread is open bantering range !!

Wish me good luck, I think that I'll need a lot of it !!

Welcome Chris !! You know the way !!

Take a seat, have a beer, a cigar or whatever !!

First time I heard this song, I burst in laugh... Then my Australian friend in Paris sang this tune every time he was ... Well you know...

Pointing me and repeating "I say language... Not sandwich !!"

Let's say that I'm now over 50...

I was about to post my today's work but it did'nt work...

I'll do another test..

Well let's try again !!

IMG_20201013_210040

And now it work... This interweb wizzardry always amaze me....

So, I said that the AZ kit is plain wrong, one can see it in looking at the pics..

Here above, it's clear...

IMG_20201013_210059

I will now show you a glitch with Oz mods  fuselages...

IMG_20201013_210247

Wasp waist for the Vengeance ??? That's not normal...

But the adjustment look good...

The most eagle eyed amonst you surely see that  the fuselages are crescent shaped...

I told you so... This build will be really funny ...🥵🥵

IMG_20201013_211946

It look far better that way... then nothing that a good vigorous gluing with clamps (a lot of) can fix up

The above sentence is clearly sarcastic...

And the beast is now in full pregnancy....

IMG_20201013_212112

I must say that I don't really care about these bomb bay doors since, there is another set...

The Oz mod kit is very complete...

IMG_20201013_212321

But mine has suffered from wrapping...

The cockpit floot has been rectified too, I saw a bit, the introduce a tiny shim in the cut

IMG_20201013_223232

Because, I did'nt wanted to deteriorate the crisp details of the bomb bay...

And this part is too thick to be reshaped in hot vapor !! (try to have cold vapor you stupid CC!!)

Now the details of the cockpit are quite good !!

IMG_20201013_210123

I also worked on my Corsairs since I must finish a Corsair this year !!

Take care Gents and happy modelling !!

Sincerely.

The only one in existence.

Supposedly the most significant aircraft in the collection, an opinion I don't share.

Well, I thank you beforehand Steve !!

As far as she's the last one of her breed, her value is pretty high...

Now, sadly, she has not a twin boom tail !!! :whistle:

That's a blatant lack of taste indeed !! :rofl2:

 

Well Gents !!

Last part of the leg, smuggling the Boomerang home....

Another job for the foxy CC....

As Shakespeare said ‘oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive’  ( nothing to do with Macbeth btw)

 

I just wait till SWMBO is out put it in the stash and use the oh I’ve had that for ages ruse :) 

 

Although these days I just discuss future purchases ahead of time, strangely enough I don’t seem to buy half as many kits, but thankfully the stash is large enough to sustain me for many years.

 

Now I need to negotiate the purchase of a Panther.

Dear God, I never realised you could get it in 75cl bottles. Looks hazardous: let's do it!

I've only been to Belgium once (a few days in Bruges) but managed to try a few of the beers. Loved them all!

After wandering around on the cobblestones one fairly hot day, I ordered a beer at a little cafe - when it arrived, it was in a glass so large that I wondered if I'd be able to lift it! Still, with a powerful thirst built up and a nation's reputation to uphold, I managed to deal with that and ordered a second. Lovely stuff!

Brilliant post and most welcome.  Hands across the ocean.  On the war memorial in our Cheshire Town is one chap who took off but didn't come back from a Vengeance mission in Burma so look forward to seeing the finished kit!!
