Well I'll not only be building outside my usual period but also outside my usual scale  :blink: If it doesn't have wings then I'm in deep dooh-dah  :rolleyes:

I have a long planned Big Job which will fit perfectly into this GB.  Plus a plentiful supply of smaller soviets to keep me busy.

Can't wait.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

There were all kinds of unlikely/impossible stunts by the Harriers: the writers clearly hadn't looked too deeply into what they can and can't do (or just didn't care). ;D


I looked at that pic somewhat askance too but came to the conclusion he's actually VIFFing sideways to the right in the pic, and it's actually a great piece of deflection shooting.                                                           Yeah, right!  ;D

I think I have a couple of ideas percolating...including one from the "Never Retired" theme build that I never got off the ground.

Gonna keep it really simple, maybe something with Skyhawks and/or Skywarriors. Just adore Heinemann designs and haven't built any for years. RAF wraparound camo is a definite although a possible Swedish a/c with splinter is tempting.

I too thought our intreped GR.3 pilot had a serious case of target fixation...... :o

I'm in for the Cold War build- poor prop job sits in her box with no way knowing the task which awaits her.  More thoughts in the head but will not get my hopes up, I'm lucky if I can crank one off the bench.

They were: I think they changed the title from Holocaust Squadron to Harrier Squadron for the second series.

Hmmm, browsed through the project list and kit stash, and came up with four serious contenders (1 USAF, 3 Soviet things), all of them involve major surgery...  ;D

Although it might be piston-engined.

Will the engines still be vertically superimposed?

Now that's going to make for some 'interesting' propeller arrangements...........  :unsure:
