A gentle bit of kit bashing here.
the british clone of the F-16. or should that read the project cloned by the yanks to get the F-16?

take one Italeri F-16, a few spare bits (froma trashed Revell F-16) a few bits of plastic card and mix well.

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

QuoteI'm doing some Hawker Furies which should appear in Tony's forthcoming book, although they flew, so I don't think they count somehow. And they're merely conversions.

I am doing some work on a Genie equipped Lightning, but that's Project Cancelled - does that count? What about the (ahem) cloned TSR2s, given that i created the moulds, albeit from an existing, discontinued (at that time) kit? Do they count?

Ah - I've a Hawker P.1087 (navalised P1081) on the go, again just a conversion, and that IS in the secret projects series. Plus, Lazlo has done a P.1083, so I think we're getting there.

Plus you have a Blackburn P141 lined up as well !!!!! ;)

I know you and Gary have/had some on the go i was just wondering who else fancied having a bash apart from us lot. I expect Nigel may have a couple of new ones to show soon (hint, hint) to follow on from the Tempest.

Aircav was thinking of some projects but not sure where they are upto with the MPA binge he's going through at the moment. Although the B-36 idea seems to be next big thing.

Thanks Martin for this wonderful model  :wub:
Captain, Ollie told me that Quebec people describe the P-38 not as twin-boom but as twin-tail, like the Me 110 maybe. For our twin-boomers, I now use the words "twin-tail-booms". OK ?

Very nice Martin.  Looks very sleek :)

Looks rather like a YF-17 to me. Though sleeker.
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

Looking good :)   In some ways it looks kinda like a mix between the F-35 and F-16.
Man, we should have cloned twenties. Jackson wouldn't have given a poo-poo.

Personally I'd love to have a go at doing one, but my kit bashing skilss are ot up to the task as yet.  A bit cra[[y really, as I know which one's I'd want to do. - The H.S P1214 'X-wing' , the P1216 and the P1205-11.
Ah well, one day maybe.... :(  :(  :(  :(

Dear Captain,
I am not sure the Quebec "twin-tail" words are wrong. There are many levels linking "twin-fin" to "twin-boom", the middle being maybe the Yak-141.
I know you are proud to be what you are, and I respect this state of mind, good for personal comfort, but maybe you could celebrate yourself without "spiting" on the others, nothing is simple, and there are so many ways... ;)
