What ever else would we think you meant?  ;)
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! :)

And time for two more Rhodesian's.


Mirage IIIE in Rhodesian service. Rigged for ground pounding.
This one is based on a claim made by a news paper in a neighbouring country that the local Airforce had shot down a "Rhodesian Mirage" during one of the RhAF's many cross border air strikes. Apparently the reply from Sailbury was "If only! Just think what we could do if we did have the Mirage"
Revell kit with a mix of decals from various sources.


Vautour IIB RRAF165 of 5sqn RRhAF as it alooked when it arrived in country on delivery from the factory in 1959.
What if the Rhodeasin's bought French rather than UK hardware? Prehaps the Vautour in place of the Canbera?
This idea was surgested by TSRjoe after he saw the pics of the Flamant, and a few more French types will possibly follow this one in due course.
The model is the Azur kit built OOB. with decals robbed from various sources. I can remember watching this kit coming off the moulding machine when I visited the MPM factory many moons ago. Ive finaly got around to building one!

Both builds finished in the run up to the Scots Nationals. Photos taken at that show last weekend.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Awesome!!!  Those look good.

And, I don't know who Dianne Abbot is. I guess that's probably a good thing.  ;D ;D

A British member of parliment.

She's a thick leftie do-gooder with a fat arse and a superiority complex.  I recall the clueless bint arguing policy with some social worker on Newsnight - she was right, living in her Westminster bubble, whereas the social worker, who'd worked on the streets and knew the conditions, was wrong.  I detest the woman with a passion, even more so now I learn of her support for the IRA in the 1980s.

I do like the Vautour Martin  :thumbsup:

Makes me want to get one of mine out and build it  ;D I've had this half idea in my brain ever since they came out of what would have happened if the Brits and French had come to an agreement and the Canberra had been used by both airforces when altitude was required and the Vatour by both in more low level roles ? Never got around to finalising it for some reason ?

It does look good.
I also have one in the stash.  It might become South/Latin American.
