Re: A Belgian Pioneer

No-one can say the SIG just turns out Spitfires and F-16s - The originality you all bring absolutely inspires me, I wonder how many of our members read The Aviation Historian!! - marvellous work !

And of course Telford.
As things stand (June ) we have NOT got a table at Stoke - they have quite rightly given previous attendees preference albeit we are on the list if any cancellations / spaces become available

Re: Big 'Blackjack'

I have to say that's a crackin' job - It's a lovely model but a bit quirky, I had to wrestle a bit to get the wing-fold 'widgets' capable of being mounted either way so I could swing the wings back. I did the Ukranian markings on mine just for a change

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 !
