A converted Hs 123 for sale; paint scheme in four upper colors is interesting, too:

Haha, did almost the same thing, although I also cut the headrest and upper fuselage down and made it Italian..

I've seen the pics on FlickR and thought it looked familiar, but could not pinpoint why...

It's just two years... I had a kit in this state of building for about 15 years until inspiration struck again and I eventually finished it. Nothing to worry about...  ;)

Not yet.  ;D

I started an RCAF Tiger Scheme CF-104, '833', the very first 'all over' Tiger scheme, back in  1970, but didn't finish it till 1997, 26 years, one job, three houses and two wives later.  ;D ;) :lol:

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! :)

Russian attack on British Railways  ;D
A little known of early cold war years:
A spetznaz unit landed secretly on the british coast for sabotage and attacked a freight train:

Note the classic british style loco and coal wagon.  :rolleyes:

Wonderful, considering that's a German WWII soldier on the footplate  :rolleyes:

Similar things used to happen regularly on my model railway layout.
I discovered that if you cut the bases from the 1/72 Airfix soldiers you could dramatically reduce the risk of derailment when you ran them over.

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

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.
