Why am I always the first one to post something in this kind of section...?


You're the fastest builder Thomas, simples.  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

"AH-1 Super Cobra MACRO MACHINE" - U.S. Marines

This is a simple scheme swap. I built the Italeri kit OOB and just painted it differently. What makes this one kind of neat,however, is that I "flipped the script." Instead of modelling something larger, I modelled something smaller. In this case, it's an old Micro-Machines toy helicopter. It was one of my favorites as a child because I thought the paint was neat.

Vectored Thrust C-130, by Sandiego89

United States Marine Corps VC-130H at Cherry Point, North Carolina 1978

"Sweet 6" pictured at her home base of Cherry Point.  The VC-130's had been primary used to support AV-8A operations at austere bases, much like her RAF counterparts supporting Gr1 and Gr3 operations in Germany. "Sweet 6" was to later gain her place in history during operation Eagle Claw to rescue the American Hostages from the embassy compound in Teheran, Iran. 

The kit: 1/72 Airfix.  Self casted resin Pegasus engines (x4).
