I can't say I've ever seen a pic of a Land Venom carrying rockets, and almost all of the RAF NF2s and 3s were allocated to night fighter squadrons, so it'd seem unlikely. The FAA, having a limited carrying capacity aboard its carriers, tended to go for more 'universal' types AFAIK.

It'd have been an FAWGA 6, as the '5' no. was used by the trainer.........  ;) ;D

Of course it was ....silly me! ;D (my thoughts are to have a 'Sea Venom Mk.22' used by the RAF in my 'Sudan Crisis' scenario as a dual purpose air defence/ground attack aircraft  <_<)

That's a tiddler, but it still looks good. Of course I'm so used to my monster 777-900 that almost ANYTHING looks a tiddler to me now.  ;D

My Oh My Oh My.
That site is seriously bad/good for the imagination.
I have seen a couple of his illustrations before, and there are a few models aropund that must have been inspired by his work.
It has certainly got my mind churning.  :wub:

PLEASE don't put your 'ROYAL AIR FORCE' titles slap down the centre of the fuselage as the three RAF EC-135 Rivet Joints had when they first arrived, that looked TERRIBLE!  :banghead:

Noted - I've just has a look at some pics. I'm aiming for something similar to what was on the VC10s etc when they were in grey and white

I'd forgotten - but back in 2013 I'd done this  ;D Now that lettering looks a bit too small now!  :o

Saturday 21st July 2018

Well the week didn't go the way I had planned it. I've been trying to help my girlfriend with her depression.
 Beer and whiffing don't go together as I have managed to combine a 1/144 Revell Airbus A380 with the wings and engines of a Revell 1/72 HP Victor K.2.
I glued the two halves of the Victor engines together and slotted the A380 on top. Due to the width of the fuselage it covers the two inner jet exhaust pipes. These act as anchor points when stiffening the fuselage.
It reminds me of a HP airliner project. Just need to find the T-tail and undercarriage. There are gaps to fill. Deciding a paint scheme would be similar to the  Revell 1/144 Boeing 747 with a HP Victor wing. I'm going to use the in-flight refueling pods from the 1/144 IL-76 Midas.

I repainted the Martin Marina AEW.1 in Beige Green. It's similar to that of the Fairey Firefly of No.810 Squadron which flew sorties from the Royal Navy''s carrier HMS Theseus.

I found parts for an Airfix Shorts Stirling so I added the front section of a Wellington.

Upper colour's are done, just need to do the lower surfaces now. I'm not being daft it's just that they are the darkest. Hopefull transfers on early next week and she should be finished by the end of the week.

Started to clean up the bits for my second planned build and looked at the parts for my third. Found out that because of the way the Italeri Spitfire V is moulded I won't need to do as much cutting as I initially thought  :thumbsup:
