Could only be a Vauxhall with those bonnet flutes.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Good job.

I'm pretty sure I used to have a Matchbox die-cast Models of Yesteryear RAF Crossely tender.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Nice! :thumbsup:

Well, the Camels are small, too, so the Vauxhall is in the same weight range. ;)  ;D

Very nice. WW1 vehicles are something I have seriously neglected.

I must admit I never paid any attention to the cars and trucks mentioned in Biggles books.

Cheers all. Yes, WW1 trucks and the like rarely get a look-in.

Yes, they definitely made one. Those MOYY were good quality. Sadly no Crossley to be found in 1/72. Hopefully Roden delivers one day.

Or ACE models.  They've done some esoteric 1/72 stuff like the Humber Woody Station Wagon and the Stolly.

Hello model peeps, a pair of recent completions for you.

Hannover CL.IIIa (Airfix) shot down by Henry Watkins (aka The Professor) after its gunmer had the Audacity to smash his altimeter  ;D














Then an Albatros D.V, the Blue Devil, shot down by Biggles in the story of the same name.

Lovely bit of work vandal ;D
The Hannover looks great mate ..superb decal work and that blue is super smooth on the Albatros  :thumbsup:
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 .

Mossie

Lovely work! :thumbsup:

Hope the Prof got the guy in the blue one to fix his altimeter. ;D
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.

Super smart, the pair of them, and I don't usually 'get' biplanes.  :thumbsup:
