Re: Boeing 747 - RAF - Take Two! ..... The Big Hemp One :-)

Well I'm in no way a 'chop-and-change' whiffer but that idea is weirdly appealing. It's a shame I don't have any more 1/450 scale 747s!  ;D (and won't have ....ever!!)

Neither am I until I started on my Whirlwind V and I don't know how many times I've uttered the emboldened part of that sentence  ;D

Boeing Seattle C.Mk.1

So here we at last, with thanks to Dizzy for the original one-liner inspiration and to Kit for the excellent decals - any poorness in the final outcome is due to the modeller and not the material supplied! ;D









Probably spent more time than is healthy painting a Bear's bottom!

That turned out pretty darn well, even though I so myself.   :thumbsup: :thumbsup: ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

That's looking odd and sexy at the same time. I wonder how this would look (even photoshopped) on a real life airfield?  :thumbsup:

Makes me wonder about a "hemped" entry of "something else" for the GB, too.

Hard to tell how small it is from the pics.

If it helps to repeat an earlier post - the model comes out at 157 mm (just over 6 inches long) which I think is about a third of the length of a 1/144 scale 747 ? (if I got my maths right?)

It's a very near match for the 1/72nd Fiat Finch!  ;D
