Lighting MK 9
« on: July 02, 2018, 08:55:47 pm »
Yes, it's the classic RAF interceptor. Soon to become a new and improved version.

Starting with the somewhat basic Hasegawa 1/72 Lightning Mk6.



We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

Improved in which direction? Aesthetics? ;D ;)

No, that's almost impossible, a Lightning is pretty nigh perfect.  ;D

Says Kit, a hard-over Englishman,  ;D ;D ;D
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! :)

Thick spine, like was done to MiG-21 - and some more antennas and bumps?
