Kudos, with Lesser Kudus thrown in!

Great Idea and great work there Dave. :)
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

That's excellent!  :wub: (and very credible too).

How the Javelin should have looked! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
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.

Looks good.  You've really captured the look of the early British jets.  Great model.  :thumbsup:

Thanks chaps, very generous comments.  For those not familiar with the AW52, that was essentially my inspiration, there's a shot of it on page 1 of this thread.
