I managed to finish 15 models this year; not bad considering! Here's a selection, in no particular order:

Academy Hunter converted to GA.11 using Aeroclub and PJ parts:

Nice work - I particularly like the first Hunter and the Canberra. :thumbsup:

Re the 19 Squadron Hawk - I know the current 19 Squadron has Hawks but is that the real livery or just an homage to the 19 Squadron Spitfires?

Cheers, everyone! I enjoyed all the builds; the fast, the slow and the tall (Buccaneer...)!

Timbo, 19 Squadron repainted this Hawk for this year to commemorate the introduction of the Spitfire back in 1938. There's a thread around here somewhere with pictures of the real thing.

Hang seen most of these builds live and in person I will say that the Chinook and the Airfix Cranberry are stunners!! The Nimblob is superb as well!!
