Just realised I'd not looked in here for some time, but of course, now that my 1/48 F6 has turned up, the build is over before I was reminded to look in. Anyhow, a superb set of builds, and I'm pleased to see that between Ratch and I we've got the Binbrook display pair too :wink:

Love it.  A serious looking aircraft.

Nice brace there Ratch, definately think the gold U/C on the 92 Sqd C/O's craft makes it stand out.

As the Lightning production line is still rumbling on here at the ATF, here's my first contribution.
Lightning F6 XS903, No. 5 Squadron RAF Binbrook, UK, 1984

Brush painted as still too nervous to use airbrush, OOB whith initial release decals. Now where's XR769 gone? (please don't say the bottom of the North Sea)

I have been able to eventually finish off the second Lightning for this group build so here is :
Airfix 1/48 English Electric Lightning F6 (09178)
XR769 No. 11 Squadron, RAF, Binbrook, U.K. 1986
2012#13

Image
This was also built from the initial release kit using one of the decal options supplied, the advantage of doing one camouflaged and one low viz is that I now have virtually a complete set of decals for the spares folder. XR769 is unfortunate in that it was the 74th and last Lightning to be lost in 34 years of frontline RAF service when it suffered and engine fire over the North Sea on the 11th April 1988. The pilot, Flt Lt Dick Coleman, an exchange pilot from the Royal Australian Air Force, safely ejected. The full incident is covered in Ian Black’s excellent book “Last of the Lightnings” Sutton Publishing, ISBN 0 7509 3073 X. As you can will be able to tell I really like this kit, just leaves me with 2 F6’s and a F1 in the stash for future delectation.
