Not so much building this week. But I have managed to finaly finish two 72nd scale builds that got posponed while I worked on the 1/144th MPA's

Both new tool Airfix lightnings. And both have been subject to resin conversions.


Who makes the conversion set to backdate the Lightening to the short tank version Martin?

optical illusion Robert.

It looked like it had a ""big"" wing    ;D

Very nice job on both though   :thumbsup:

All of your planes look great but the first shot of the Viscount had me asking "Is R2D2 peeking out through the top"?
"Just which planet are you from again"?

Sword do them all (I think) as complete kits now though.
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! :)

I dont normaly do WIP photos. But what the hell!  ;D

Im back to Phantoms for the next pair of builds.

 Both kits are from Fujimi. The over all extra dark sea grey bird is an FG-1, the cammo and yellow bands bird is an early FGR-2 kit.

Now to show their undersides (and biggest clue to what im doing with them......................First the FG-1


and now the FGR-2


Yes! Target tugs!
each will be gaining the target kite/drouge unit that comes in one of the Hasegawa weapon sets.

Oh that's a good one: I've never yet seen those target sets actually used! :thumbsup:

My thoughts exactly.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

The target tug Tooms are finished.

First the senior service with the FG/TT-1. Serving with the FRADU and operating out of RNAS Yeovilton. hence the tail code letters.




And now thw RAF FGR/TT-2. Serving with 100 squadron alongside their Canberra's in the early 1970's.






Group shots.

Jeepers, those targets are HUGE! We're they carried on outriggers from the drop tanks? It looks s strange way of doing things.

Super modelling as usual OGL, we'll soon be able to have a SIG display purely of Frightenings and 'Tooms.  ;D
