At the last second I decided to whiff it. The FF stands for FastFreight, and was one of the first jet cargo aircraft in the world my warped universe. Base kit is the Airfix Comet 4 B, which has been languishing as a real world build for over 20 years. Too late to do an interior, so I may not have the swing-tail fully open. Port side cargo door will not be opened, just an engraved outline.

Thanks. Now, wouldn't it look even cooler in RCAF Transport colours? If I can find another kit I just may do that.  ;D

If it aint broke ,,fix it until it is .
Over kill is often very understated .
I know the voices in my head ain't real but they do come up with some great ideas.
Theres few of lifes problems that can't be solved with the proper application of a high explosive projectile .

Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

I built this Airfix Comet Racer a fair few years ago now. Takes you back to when plastic kits were still in their infancy  ;D

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

I remember that one, it looks REALLY good in the Camotint scheme too!  :thumbsup:

Managed to add some interior, just so that the opening doesn't look bare. Still some paint touch-up to do. Random unreadable spare stencil on rear pressure bulkhead. Door leads to storage area.
