Yeah, the views even on boring back roads out there are awesome.  Hardly need to go to the parks.

After driving through about 200 miles of " Look at that ! " we laughed our butts off when we saw this sign. It was the follow on to a sign we saw at a trail head " Difficulty level : Difficult ". Interesting level ?   :thumbsup:

Here's an Instagram account from a Singapore-based modeller/cosplayer who does some really excellent Star Wars stuff:

Came to my attention because Massimo on Twitter posted these pics of explosion dios made with cotton wool and LEDs:

Hm, I've got kits for both of those, but do I have the shelf space?

Probably not...........

Is there a kit for the X-15A-3 (stretched delta-winged version)?


There was a conversion kit for it, but I'm darned if I can remember who did it now. I've got the Special Hobby A-2 version which I planned to use as the basis for the A-3.

According to the Boeing document D6-58322 707 Airplane Characteristics for Airport Planning,
on the 720B the tail span was increased from 39 8 to 43 4.

The RAF Centenary Group Build / Re: 23 Sqdn. DH Venom T5

Now came the difficult bit.......  :banghead:

Fitting the Sea Venom wings onto the combined Vampire nose and Venom engine took LOTS of accurate measuring, sawing and filing, and it's still not good enough as it is. The FROG styrene is so thick that it won't fit over the Airfix intake ducts, and if I did this again I'd leave the duct moulding out altogether, it's not as if you can see it anyway. I decided not to cut away the Rareplane engine's wing roots as it'd have left a big gap with nothing to glue the FROG wings to. Instead I cut away the inboard edge of the FROG wings, thus negating the 'pliers and file' work I did on the uptilted inboard trailing edge.

You can see the difference between the modified port wing compared to the standard starboard wing below. You can also see the minimal PSR I needed on the fuselage. Not a lot of it but a right pain to sand, that's for sure!



After it's glued together I'll need to sand off lots of the upper surface of the FROG wings to match the lovely Airfix intakes, but there's plenty of material there to do that.

Just about done with the major PSR work on the fuselage and port wing, the rear end is all sanded smooth and I've glued the under-nose gondola in place and PSR'd it to death by now. I also added a backwards facing seat for the loadmaster after filing away much of the floor re-inforcement. (That seat is the one single item I used from the Skycrane kit.  ;D) I've glued the nose landing gear doors in place and PSR'd them as well, as the Noratlas nose wheel will be a tad further aft.

In addition I've also PSR'd the Twin Otter wing trailing edges that'll be used for the 'crane's tailplane as it has many indentations and double slotted flaps, whereas I'll only need an 'elevator'.

T38 or the F5 used them in that time period.
