Very nice, too!

There's me wondering what to do (tidy up my cave and sort out the stash, or actually start to build something), then there's you with these very nice models, COMPLETED!

Well done, happy New Year!  Thanks for sharing, too.

Astounded Tony- five already and there are still Turkey left overs in the fridge. I'm still working on two that didn't get finished in 2020.  Do you rate the Arma Hurricanes?

Cheers bud.....  yeah proper scale,.... but my eyes are struggling with these little ones these days and I always notice some errors when they appear twice the size blown up on the computer screen! I have magic Elves working on a production lin in the cellar,.... I thought that was common knowledge??!!😉

Thanks Colin,..... yeah Turkey Curry and toasties have just used up the last of ours! 

I ate the Arma Hurricane kits very highly indeed mate,..... the slid back canopy is a little thick, but otherwise they are excellent,.... the best Hurri`s in this scale and I believe that more variants are on the way,.... Mk.IIa, Mk.IId etc amongst other surpries??

I built two BAe Hawks for a GB and they took me weeks - and that's your festive period batch?  Yikes.  That sort of rate extrapolates to about 250 models for 2021, I shall watch with bated breath.

I`m not intending on working the production Elves flat out all year,.. I`ll be giving them breaks along the way.
