I always hope for the best.

Hope to have a few new models for our stand this year along with a couple of refurbished whiffs.

Wiffed EE Lightning and Lockheed Starfighter for certain.

Looking forward to this one.

Erm, I'm meant to coming to Coventry, but I'm in Northants and most of my models are at home in Lydney, 120 miles away.............. :(

I could have the KMD-11 done by then, and even my 1 Week Build Defender too (if the paint dries fast enough..........)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Well I'm looking forward to seeing you Kit as its been a while, with or without the KMD-11, but fingers crossed you both can make it!

Nice show today, great to see some familiar faces. Thank you to those who picked up stuff from me, as always much appreciated.

That FR tandem Hunter conversion looks the BUSINESS Colin.

I don't have a Hunter handy to me at the moment to try a test fit, but if it goes on like all your other stuff it should be a breeze.  :thumbsup:

These two interesting, and different 'twins' were on a stand behind us at Coventry.

The catamaran carrier was particularly well done.



The builder came to chat to us later, but only wanted to talk about his models............

I think I've seen that carrier before ? The twin Lancaster is quite interesting with only one fuselage having a mid-upper turret and then the 6 bladed props. Any reason for them ? Apologies if it had different engines but I can't quite make it out.
Decals my @r$e!

I asked him about the 6 bladers on the Lanc, but he only wanted to talk about his 1/48 TSR2 with 1/72 Vulcan wings.

So, a bit in love with his own cleverness. :rolleyes:

Shows he's never been to this site! ;)
