Re: Avro,s finest

What a line-up - The AModel Lancaster is no easy starting point - I was going to suggest the labours of Hercules but that might be a pun too far ! For what it's worth it was the Czechmaster Shackletons that sold me on the merits of 1/144 all those years ago. The last two Lincolns were sacrificed on ...

Re: USAF Heavy Lifters

What David said - cracking job - is the load a 144Sqdn Thor missile ?

Roden are hard work sometimes but there's a good model in there as you so ably demonstrate, beautiful !

Re: MiGs in Ethiopia - Eduard MiG-21/Academy MiG-23

Nice job Tim

That diorama perfectly encapsulates how far the hobby has come - the Eduard MiG is light years from the old (crown?)tooling - maybe thirty years old? (anybody know the exact lineage?)
