The Olympus was in contention with the JT8D for the original Viggen, the Swedes chose the latter for availability and commonality reasons.  And within a decade regretted it when the Indian deal was scuppered by the US State Department.

I found a box of vacforms the other month. Still trying to figure why I bought most of them especially that Vickers Windsor  :o


I've got one of them too, it's a big aeroplane crammed into a very small box!  :o

I've got a Sanger kit of it too, but there's some parts missing. When I wrote to Sanger asking if I could get them, the answer I got was a bit weird. I was told that they didn't have the moulds for the parts that were missing, kinda explains why they weren't in it doesn't it ----

Well just purchased my fifth Revell BK-117 helicopter (that trip to Germany has a lot to answer for!) which means I now have two kits that I don't have planned (real-world) ADAC schemes for. I'm thinking of putting one towards a RAF Centenary GB build - thoughts being that back in 1996 this helicopter was chosen for the Defence Helicopter Flying School instead of the Griffin.

Also ended up (partially to reduce overall postage cost per item) with ANOTHER 1:450 Revell Boeing 747 - this may well be the Hemp one!  :o ;D

And yesterday I got the Revell F4U Corsair - it'll be a OOB build - I just LOVE :wub: that FAA scheme  ;D

Because your ambitions are far from simple, Kit, & you're too much of an engineer to do a half-baked job. :thumbsup:


Yes, you could be right there.  ;D

Yup it's all down to the ancient, and often missunderstood, art of indexing.

Main painting has been started.  :thumbsup:

Progress has been a little slow, combination of the extreme heat of late (extreme for UK  ;D) and the fact that this old world of ours has been getting me down a bit  :-\ Coming out of that a bit now, so hopefully progress will be made over the next few days.

Meanwhile started looking at the bits for build No 2. It's a complete resin kit and the first task is to figure out up/down and port/starboard for some of the parts  :unsure:
