Now THERE'S a neat idea!

I have a few Airfix Comet 4Bs in The Loft, and a resin Comet 1. Doing that to one of the 4Bs would make a good Comet 0.5.....  ;D

Wings done ready to attach...



but that will have to be tonight as I've put Kristal Klear into the window frames. It's going off quickly but not quick enough before I'm off to work.

Very much so. Looks so right as well. Are you sure they weren't flying people to the French races from Croydon in the late 40's ?

Looks good Bungle! :wub:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
