Among others (all 1:72)...

A D.H. Mosquito night fighter, Egyptian use around 1950, based on a NF.30 but with radials.

A late Spitfire (F.24?) in RoC use - inspired by CGI designs from Darth Panda in the CGI section.

AĆ©ronavale A-4B

Revamped Etendard in Indonesian Navy use

...and some more!  ;D

The plan is not to make a plan as anything I ever commit to the web seems doomed never to happen.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I've been having some sneaky ideas regarding Buchons and Spanish Heinkels.  Just need some conversion bits.

The first task is to finish some of the in-progress ones before I start anything new. Though I have a Gerry Anderson tribute idea I'd like to do soon.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

Getting back into model ships after a 10+ year hiatus. The first project......an upgraded Forrestal class carrier. New superstructure, radar systems, weapons systems....oh the possibilities!!!!

Gondor

I hope to finish several builds for Telford this year and maybe a couple of other builds as well for various other groups and to make a start on a big conversion for the Project Cancelled SIG

But then I build at a glacial pace so I may only get one build finished altogether!

The Wooksta!

I've just got the flying surfaces on the Griffon engined Avro Lanchester* and it's looking really impressive.  Finishing that, plus a few more of the Lancasters that have been hanging about unfinished for some time, is now priority.

*Two more are planned - one with Griffons (in post war markings with the Central Bomber Establishment or the Central Flying School), t'other with Bristol Centaurus - and the fuselages largely assembled.  Just need some more resin so I can cast the new nose sections plus the bomb bay fairings.  The Lanchester carried a scaled up version of Grand Slam, codenamed Housekeeper and a little known variant codenamed Nursemaid.  I'm also thinking about a variant of the Miles 52, sans u/c and with a warhead in place of the cockpit, as a stand off bomb.  Need a cheap Condor V-2 for that.

As soon as I make a plan the whole thing falls apart. I will do my best and blame it all on life, the universe and everything.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

It's on the bench! Looks brutal, not a Mossie, rather a Bumblebee...

Beyond that, a T-58Sh is starting to form, and one or two more submission for the Asiarama GB, e. g. a Koolhoven fighter, developed and built in UK exile after the Netherlands were occupied, and the transferred to the Pacific theatre.

I've QUIT some pretty nice hobbies and sports, right after I started taking them seriously...

 Well, for starters - this magnificent beastie!!;


Using the 1/48 Italeri SR-71. Actually, out of sheer laziness, I'll be doing it as a sort of improved - SR-71!! I can't be bothered shortening the tail end or adding the ventral fin!!
Griffon engined Hawker Hurricane V - cross kitting the Airfix 1/72 Spitfire 22 with the Hurricane II. At least in the smaller scale it won't be a disaster if it all goes horribly wrong!
Griffon engined Hawker Tempest
Sukhoi SU-19 - Improved version of SU-17 Fitter. With enlarged nose radome & side intakes above the wing roots. Using the Kopro 1/48 kit. This will be part of my personal alternative Cold War collection & feature RAF markings
Turbofan powered Airbus A-400 - I just happen to have the CFM-56 engines left over from the Heller E3 kit!!
Antonov/Airbus A-450 - upgraded/modified Antonov  AN-124 with T-tail & R R Trent engines
Hopefully get around to the BAC/Tupolev BT-30 long range interceptor -based on TSR-2. Also part of my alternative Cold War collection.  I want this one in N M finish & BIG RED STARS!! &lt;_&lt; extended wings, twin tails & MASSES of whizz bangs! &lt;_&lt;
Also, as I'll have the engines left over from the A-400, I'm going to see if it's feasible to fit a pair of these to a C-130. Mind you, the props are HUGE!! Ground clearance might be a bit of an issue here!
Single engine BAC Lightning using fuselage of Revell 1/48 Sukhoi SU-7 with cockpit/wings/undercarriage of the Airfix Lightning
Figuring out how to fit R R Merlin 85 engines to the Revell JU-290 transport in order to produce the post war production variant, the Avro Edinburgh!
Of course, these are all good intentions & we all know what the road to hell is paved with!!

Finish my Shipping Projects

redo an early  Car ferry project from my teenage years into a Dutch Style  Landing Ship HQ . Probably keep the superstructure and give her a new hull.

redo a Narvik style destroyer from same period with scale weaponry rather than the current ones which probably scale out at 8-12 inch.

plus  including but not limited to

French style Battleship
LSD
Landing Ship Stern Chute
German WW1cruiser Bari style
Premuda style Destroyer leader
Japanese Destroyer in Italian navy Audace Style as mini submarine carrier.
WW2 Flower class sloop as AA auxilary
D Class AA cruiser
Black Swan Class Sloop
Captain class Destroyer Escort

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! :)
