I belive that the DH Viper is one from one of our own........ Kitbasher.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Some nice stuff hiding on ARC (and that doesn't include the What If GB).


Columbian Hellhound (now that's completely different)


This is the new Airfix 1/48th kit in 617 markings.

Didn't see an Alvis thread so will put this one here.



Still thinking of getting one of these to scaleorama to a 72nd manned version, just a cockpit and stabilizers and could be good to go.

Found this in John Smallbrugge's gallery from IPMS Fraser Valley Con 2009:

That Craptor just looks Sexy.  The camo is so bloody sweet.  I guess given the right paint, even that ugly bird can look decent.  *whistle*

The Super Deuce is just insane - I LOVE IT.  Dorsal spine, CFT's, Canards, and is that what, an IRST under the nose?

I've been combing through the ARC galleries, and I located the following, the AMT/Ertl Valkyrie whiffed into an RB-70C.


 
That's in my 'To Do' stash, but in SEA Cam...
