A thread for completed builds

Hi chaps!
Pop your completed builds in here so they're all in one nice convenient place, and I'll get the voting happening by the weekend!
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

The Saunders Roe Pelican MR.2.  Developed for the anti-submarine mission.  The Pelican was Saunders Roe's last big success.  It was flown by the RAF, RCAF, RAAF and the West German Marineflieger.  First flown in 1954, Pelicans were still flying missions through the Cold War and finally in the mid-80's, the last Australian Pelicans were retired. As well as their anti-sub missions the Pelicans were involved in numerous search and rescue operations.  They also flew fisheries patrol and on numerous occasions flew emergency disaster relief missions where their freedom from fixed runways allowed them direct access to many coastal area.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

The Alpha Attack Jet was offered in competition to the Italian AMX and British Hawk 200 as a lightweight fighter attack a/c.  There were some sales particularly to African and Middle East customers.  One such user was the Algerian AF.  The Alpha Attack Jet was a single seat variant of the Alphajet.  It had new LERX added to the wing roots and the rear cockpit was replaced with additional electronics and fuel. An additional weapons station was added above the wing for lightweight A-A missiles such as Sidewinders and Magic.

Lebanese Air Force Typhoon

When the deal fell through for second-hand Fulcrums to the Lebanese Air Force the Defense Minister Elias el-Murr pleaded to the UK for aid (hoping to purchase the BAe Hawk jet trainer).

Imagine his surprise when he was offered the Typhoon instead.  :thumbsup:

Builders notes:
The colour scheme is supposed to duplicate the one used on the Hunter, but the tints came out different (approximation with Tamaiya colours). To me it looks more like som older Italian paint job.

Don't really have a backstory.....other than to say the craft is from the future....it operates from a desert planet. It is highly manoeuvrable. The main wings attached to the engines pivot allowing rapid manoeuvres....it is heavily armed....this led to the forces facing it calling it the Sand Viper....after a reptile that inhabited earth....small and deadly....!!!
