Some older build photos
« on: September 04, 2011, 02:37:27 pm »
Ive been digging through some of my older photos tonight, so I thought id post a few up.
Most are mine, some are from other people I know who are not normally whiffers.
Some of the pics are  very low rez, this because when they were taken my digi cam was a first generation Sony Mavica.


yes its the old Unicraft 109TL conversion. This one must be approaching 13 years old now, and is still in my collection.


A bit more recent this time. 2006. A rebuilt captured Lysander I serving as a spy dropper with KG200. The engine is a giveaway to what mods where done to it.


2006 again, this time a what do you do with a 2nd hand kit with water damaged decals?.............


This one is as old as the Me 109TL. And was one of the first full resin kits I built. It is of course the Planet models Lippisch P.11.


This one dates to 2005. Airfix boomerang serving with the RAAF in the western desert. Everything is as per the kit bar the paint job.


A manga models Miles M20 again from 2005. This one is currently sitting in the SIG display at the Midland air Museum.

ok now a few from some of the lads of IPMS Coventry & Warwickshire

A monster kit bash from Pete R, He also does 1/1 scale wartime softskins  :wacko:



Another one from Pete, all ill say is there is an LRDG truck and a bren gun carrier in there some ware.


Known only as the thing...........it started life as a 1/24th scale harrier :unsure:


What to do with a Cylon raider, when your a armor modeller? Dave C is to blame for this one.  ;D



I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

The Soviet 'monster truck'! and the Cylon Raider bash are my favourites.

Thanks for posting Martin.  :thumbsup:

What was the Soviet monster truck hull based on?  The 109TL really freaked me out as I have a Romanian one also. 
The Leng Plateau is lovely this time of year

Those are great, thanks for sharing them with us! I have to do that to a harrier!  :wacko:

The Cylon Raider made me laugh, given how many blatently obvious tank bits were on the original... ;D

Those are all great!  :thumbsup:
