Peter,

Yes, I've seen that photo before ... fascinating little scene, and well executed. My idea though is to create a much larger scene ... the focal point, an SU-27 Flanker being taxied across the grass in preparation for take-off; and in the background, various other aircraft (Hawker Hurricane, A6M Zero, Apache helicopter, P51 Mustang, F14 Tomcat, NA Sabre, P40 Warhawk , etc ...) waiting for their turn to thrill the crowd.

Well that is the plan ... just when I get round to actually doing it is another matter, as I've got so many projects on the go!

Here is my Trumpeter 1/144 scale North American USAF F-86F-30 Sabre. The markings are the 335th Fighter Intercept Squadron, Korea, 1953. The pilot figure is from OzMods. Guess I need a MiG-15 to go with it.







It's not perfect, but I like how it came out.

Hi all, I've been a poor attendant lately but I felt I need to feel I am still building. Ok I admit this is from last May but still, I've built at least two 1/144s in 2018. This one won a 1st prize in the National Competition last year. Unfortunately I didn't take photos of the sistership which is Hans Phillip's bird of the same era. Kit is Sweet's F from Barbarossa box. Happy New Year everyone.



...hmmm, pitot tube looks invisible, but it is there.

Ooops, seems like there is a problem with photo links. Ok, let's try this way.

Ha, I just found this thread; didn't know it was here... Nice job on the 109 Jolly.

I've started work on a P-51 that will be done up as Bob Hoover's 'Ole Yeller. I'll be sure to post in here when I get some progress done.

Gentlemen:
It has obviously been quite a while since I last posted. But I do manage to keep an eye out on the posts, and the 1/144th scale "toys" and decals !

I don't know if anyone has announced it ... but Caracal Decals has announced some Great 1/144th decals for us "Wee Builders". They will be doing the RAF C-130's with the special tail colors ... plus at least one sheet, possibly more , for the C-17's. Perhaps our time in the cycle has returned !

These sheets can be seen on the ARC forum under Caracal Decals ... these sheets are definitely getting me cranked up again !

So what do you all think ?

I recently picked up the Academy P-47D Thunderbolt; I'd like to get a set of those Platz decals.

Hi All,

Just finished this P-51D as Bob Hoover's 'Ole Yeller.' Decals are from Draw Decals and I thought they were excellent! I'm still struggling with masking canopies; getting closer, but still not where I'd like to be.

I really need to stop by more often. Thanks guys, Cool looking Mustang Joe, is that the Platz kiT?. Old warriors in civillian colours always fascinate me.
Wow! Platz reboxed their P-47D bubletop kit... There is a world of difference Between that and Academy Jimb. I've fiished one up as Eaglston's Jug a while ago. Outstanding kit. It is nice to see it is around again.
