Yessir Stirling X I think. I'd have to go find it again. I have a story I need to write before I post the pics. I've been putting it off and putting it off. I take writing seriously. Too seriously. Every time I start I over think it, think it's goofy, edit, add / delete details and then quit.

Like everything else I should just do it and get over myself.... :banghead:

I love the US CF-100 in SEA camo.  Someone here did a profile of that I have it saved, picked up the kit and got the replacement interior from Obsureco.  Just need the bomb load and then get in a SEA painting mode.

I used to be the same way when writing books. Do it, read it, re-do it, edit, re-write. Then I just wrote it out, editede for spelling and sentence construction then sent it to my test subjects to read. Now I have a small but happy group of readers that are egging me to get the first book published. Working on book two.

Close Tophe, but not quite...it's a little more French than that  :thumbsup:
Noratlas? And as the Noratlas is said to be an illegal Packet copy, and the Flying Boxcar is a Packet derivative, all stays in the family. Twin-boom cargos forever... thanks!

A suggestion, as I have seen that the Voodoo is the Matchbox kit with the retrofitted box camera nose: why not hang a pair of big HOBOS or Paveway GBU under it, making the camera a 2nd generation sensor turret (A.k.a. Pave Moon 2.0?)

Check the parts box for a couple of Phantom inner pylons. Attach them in front of the main gear and you'll have a good place for the Mavericks.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

As alluded to in my regular blog, here's a few pics of my conundrum. I do believe that a large home is conducive to clutter.   :banghead: As is borederline ADD and whatever else goes on inside ones head. A busy life with diversified hobbies probably doesn't help....

Here's my little table where I do most of my work. As you can see, stuff everywhere. Kits recently purchased, spares for the GB, never ending Harriers, bits to support the eventual dio and photo shoot....



Turn to the right and through a door and were into the junk side of the basement, utility room / hockey room. Here is my main book shelf, and old curio cabinet and my Grandfather's Hurricane. Plus other assorted junk.



And a look to the left and this is what you see....clutter !

On the floor in front of the book we have a nitro RC car in need of help, as well as a forlorn 500cc 2-stroke v-4 engine. More clutter and junk !



Looking at half builts, old motocross boots for sale, stacks of half builts and what not....



Choppers and Harriers and.... :banghead:

An old light table from work doubles as a mess collector. My RCAF Strike Wing box o' half builts.



Look up and there's a wood shelf an Uncle made at school doubling as a tank farm

Shelf o' stuff. This is where I was hoping to keep the builds I wanted to keep. Halfway there I guess. It's semi organized and somewhat clean !



Above that we have the diecast collection and the 'who, me ? ' look



The other corner

Now, if we turn around and head the other way, looking from the curio cabinet we see the hockey room, or Dyte Hall as we call it. The boy does all of his stick drills here, and when it's cleaned up he can have three or four friends and a goalie going at it. I bet a million slapshots have been taken here



Looking to the right of the bag we see them entrance to the cave



Looking East
