Top Stuff!  Like the Fokker VII.  Revell 1/48 Spirit of St Louis going cheap in the local Modelzone - resisted the temptation so far to get one and turn it into a 1/72 trimotor.  Guess it would look a lot like the Fokker.
Also cool Skyvans!  ;D ;D
PS what's the parasol beastie in what looks like Airfix Gladiato decals behind the second dalek?

Some great stuff guys.  The Gigant is certainly a looker & Terry's Daleks are 'unique' to say the least!  That operational SeaVark is something sweet too.

Yet more proof that our English cousins are some outstanding modellers! I always love seeing show pics. Almost makes me feel like I was there. Thanks a bunch for posting these, Glorious SIG Leader!

Nice showing dudes.  My fav besides the  :dalek: is Martin's C-97.  Never would have thought of that in a million years but looks SOOOO right! :thumbsup:

Hey Martin, you got any Huntsmen conversions left?  I fancy one in USAF markings.
