Hey spitfire1677

Some very nice builds there.  The 109 is particularly nice, is it the 1/24th scale kit?  Nice to see a Nighthawk with her weapons deployed as well.

Some great builds here, I'm not that familiar with all of them so can you possibly attach names to them?

diddyman I have ammended my post slightly and hopefully that should answer all your questions, but if not let me know.

Arpie it just seemed a shame not to have the LGB's deployed! And the Me109 is 1:24 I built it about 8 years ago and was my first taste of airbrushing.

Topgun thanks for the kind words. :D

Chris

Great builds there mate :thumb:

Do I spy a little yellowing on the Beaufighter decals there mate??  :wink:

Nice FFR too, what about some antennas on those side arms mate :wink:

You must have right good mate to help you out with the Orange for your Sea King too eh  :rotfl:

Excellent builds mate, well done! :thumb:

Mr Munkster,
                   1.  You know the reason for the silvering of the decals on both Beaufighters! I need not say any more  :twisted:

                   2.  Antennas on my FFR...you will find out in due course that I dont do Communicating!  :D

                   3.  Yeah some mug lent me his brand new Tamiya orange, cheers for that by the way! 8-)

Thanks for your kind words,

Regards

Chris

P.S don't red pen this! lol  :D

Hi all,
       I was recently looking at someone's profile...sorry I can't remember who's, and seen they had done a "what if" Red Arrows scheme on a Harrier GR3 which looked rather smart.  So it got me thinking and after a look through the stash I found my Airfix Eurofighter Typhoon and thorght that would make a good "what if" Red Arrow.

Airfix Eurofighter Typhoon 1:72 with decals by Xtradecal set X72085.
