Well you've certainly taken something on here!  :o

What are you going to do with the pair of MB.5's you've pruned?


That's a very valid question, and it seems some parts of them will be heading west to Canada.

I did think of adding an ex-Sea Fury Centaurus to one to see what it looked like.  ;)

A Matchbox one from their Tempest II is a far better fit.  Ask me how I know... ;D


I haven't seen an M'box Tempest II for AGES. That's the one with the Indian Air Force 'Wheel' roundel, isn't it?

And if you want a Centaurus from it Kit ------  ;)  But as I'm adding a Sabre VIII meant for one of my Sabre Hawker Fury's, I'd say the Sea Fury would work fine (and ask me how I know  ;) )

Actually, looking at it in the cruel light of day, it still needs some more attention, but at least it proved that the concept is viable.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

After a few traumatic months I started to look at this one again, mainly because I'll be doing some vacform work for another project before much longer.

I ought to get back on the Welkin III, it's a fascinating looking device, and it'll have HUGE wings!  ;D
