In the left lower corner: The revell Seamaster 1/136 that was never completed and fell off the table during the original build. Fuselage got cracked at two places and was left in the "wrecks" box for a very long time. It had its engines removed somewhere during it's time in the "Wrecks box" but now it's time had come to get out of the box and got build as a proper 1/72 model. With the single Buccaneer engine on it's back and butterfly tail (from 1/96 Victor) it'll be the
SNCASE SE. 2560.

On the left top: is the 1/72 Airfix Viking to be converted to a British carrier based AEW plane (hence Viking AEW4).

Top right: The Revell Seavixen is to be converted to a Carrier Onboard Delivery plane in the same era as the Viking AEW4 and the Phantom FG1. Just need to reconfigure the entire fuselage... That's why the plastic tube and balsa wood is needed.

Mid right: I got this 1/48 Revell stealth fighter as an partially build model. Some is painted and will be removed during the build. It'll have a central float and outriggers from an Heller CL 415. Wings will be lengthened and in the end it'll be an two seater four engined sea-borne stealth attacker/bomber.

On the lower right is a collection of parts from different sources (Napier Lion resin engine, Tiger moth wings and tailplanes, the central float and outriggers could be from a Vought Kingfisher, not sure..) and is planned to be a British Savoia like seaplane.
