Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Thanks fellas, very much appreciated,

Joe, I've also heard the name Vengeance bandied around and personally I think that would have suited it perfectly.. the ultimate V weapon!.
Look forward to chatting to you and Chris about the subject soon...

Must crack on with the Avro 776 now...

Thanks again all,

Andy

Well, I can only say how pleased I am to see my scribbles and drawings brought to life. Well done!

It's a lovely model and the poffler does suit the anti-flash white.

As ever, there is a pint (or other suitable drink, as my mineralogy lecturer used to say) for first-builders and hopefully catch up with you at Telford.

Thanks

Chris

Thanks Chris, look forward to it.. :cheers:

Hopefully some more variants will be built next year, particularly the 'Red Barrel interceptor'. though I'm sorely tempted to have a go at a 1/72nd Anigrand resin and Cammett AEW3 conversion just to see what can be done!,

Cheers now,

Andy

Whenever I see G.M.'s name, it is obvious that whatever is inside the link is of highest quality.
