Well thanks, I'm suitably flarttered  ;D but the only thing Whiffish about it is the colour scheme, it's a RW build of the USN's 'standard' P6M trolly.

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

It might not be painted, yet, but I nominate PR19_Kit's Martin Monterey MR1 Beaching Trolley as one of the most spectacular pieces of intricate support structure (I've) ever seen.



More here: http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,43912.msg778402.html#new

Kit's Martin Monterey beaching trolley. A thing of magnificence, and worthy of a nomination in its own right.  I suppose it counts as a "miscellaneous item". I eagerly await the chance to nominate the aircraft too, assuming one or other of the rest of you don't get in before me.






The trolley was nominated even before it was finished by yours truly. I guess we can add "Alternate Colour Scheme" to the "Most Spectacular Piece of Intricate Support Structure". :thumbsup:

Kit 95% or more of my Wif's are simply a change of colour scheme, nationality or a putting projects into service.

Ah yes, I hadn't thought of that until you pointed it out, sorry.

strobez'd probably walk away with that on sheer volume of builds alone (a bit like a Ghibli Dizzy). ;)

I was reading your comment on Brad's blog and looking at the pic thinking: "Has this been nominated yet?"  :thumbsup:
