They look good and like the Lightning.

I keep hoping FineMolds will release a Tie Bomber. And an A-Wing and a B-Wing and a 72nd Snowspeeder but who knows.

Wow ! You've been a busy boy ! Love the Harrier....I gotta get off my duff and get one of those. Just looks so neat. Mean, or something....

The chopper looks great too ! Very subtle. I was going to ask if it was real, but then I figured it out.

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

Size (of the stash) matters.

Time to take a look at one of the oldies in my collection................built around 2002-2003



One of the first models I did using acrylic paints. And to date the only non sci fi AMT kit ive built. despite having a load of em in the stash.

This one is still around, in very deep storage some ware up in the loft.

She looks good like that ! Definitely more interesting than an all-metal example.

Don't know, sometimes they look good in nmf.

Taken at Commiesfest in 2012, not mine.

Martin,
Love the camo on your version, very B-52ish.

Are you thinking of taking your B-49 to the Cosford Show by any chance Martin?

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! :)

That B-35 does look good, I've got plans to add guns to the turrets too.  I've read somewhere that the tail cone behind the gunner's position was supposed to have a group of four .5's there, B-52 style ---

That's mentioned in the intructions, at least in the AMT version anyway, but they don't give you the guns on the sprues!

I thought I had read it somewhere Kit --- I've got the AMT boxing, times two ---  :mellow:  one will be an RAF Grand Slam carrier
