interesting to say the least

Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Hmmm...
Air deliverable Port-a-Potty.
I can see the markings now.

And, of course, the line up at the latest airshow.  Give you a chance to still take pics of aircraft while you are in that line.

Morning Gang,

Unicraft has released it's 'Super Shturmovik', namely the Il-20.

http://www.geocities.com/unicraftmodels/on...n/il20/il20.htm

Some serious metal there.

Haven't seen the Il-20, but I picked up the even uglier Tu-91 Boot at Telford, along with the LPL Flying Submarine (pic below).

The engraved detail is better than on some earlier Unicraft kits that I've built, but the surface of the resin is relatively rough on the LPL and full of pinholes on the Tu-91, so a lot of filling and sanding is going to be needed. Still, no-one else does these subjects and I've got some nice results with his kits in the past - - -

G'day Gang,

Igor has a new kit in production that's straight up our alley.  I know most will poo-poo the kit, but it's certainly a unique little beast.  I'm just baffled at how the pilot got squeezed in.

Ditto - with a rocket engine in the back it would have been cosy!!!  Kind of a smaller companion to the Zeppelin 'Rammer':

waddaya mean poo-poo? Scale that thing up and it'd make an awesome Luft '46  heavy bomber design!

G'day Gang,

A couple more from Igor at Unicraft...

http://www.geocities.com/unicraftmodels/germ/he1073/he1073.htm
http://www.geocities.com/unicraftmodels/germ/go-rammer/go-rammer.htm

Funny thing is about the P.1073/8 though, whilst I agree she's high-altitude (just look at the wings), it's carrying 'Englandblitz' markings from the Nachtjagergeschwadern rather than any Aufklarungs unit markings???

Regards,

Mav
