First past the post, with the Bristol Olympus engine testbed, converted from the Airfix 1/48 B(2) kit.

Don't know what the maximum is for photos in the gallery, but it's usually five, so I'll go with that...

Airfix PR9 much easier to build than the Xtrakit version, although less refined in detail.

Hello,

Here's another coda - the Italeri B-57G Canberra, which I have found to be a creditably accurate kit, despite its age. In fact, there would seem to be fewer errors than the current Airfix 1:48 item. This is only the second build I've seen where the HF aerial has been included. The aftermarket parts were: Aeroclub Escapac seats, Xtradecal decals, augmented by those from the kit, Cobra Resins cockpit (suitably modified, I eventually found a way of sending him cash for the item), Eduard general detail set and Spectre Resins M36 bombs. The aircraft represented is that of the 13th BS, 8th TFW towards the end (hence the weathering) of its stay at RTAFB Ubon.
