I feel your pain... :blink: i think most of us have a long list of ideas/future builds in mind... i'm in the same situation, so much i wanna do, but time's short... Nonetheless, there's always another one in mind... :banghead:

I do jot down my ideas when they come to me but I have to admit they are in two different parts of the notebook. One is for those I seriously mean to have a crack at and the other is for those that if I'm honest I've no chance of doing or are merely momentary flights of fancy. The only problem is that if I recognise them as such why do I write them down ?  :blink:

I think it's always good to save all ideas, even the ones you deem too far out, maybe after a few months, you'll look back on them and decide to have go, who knows?  :thumbsup:

Getting sidetracked from my F-111 builds by a couple of TSR 2's

Not sure if this is a bad thing  :blink:

Starting to look forward to next year and the Cold War GB. Yummy, my preferred time frame  :wub:

So saying that what will I build?

I have several options available, some harder to finish in time than others. For example I have a couple of Airfix Vulcan's set aside with planned builds that would fit into the theme. I also have several TSR2's which I have planned build for. There is also a Tu-142 that I plan to build, a Swift F7 and P.1154's that are un started. I could also build an F-111 and a six gun Lightning too, perhaps a Hunter or Canberra instead. So many to chose from and this is by no means a complete list of what I could build so the choice or choices could take some time for me to reach.  :rolleyes:

So here is a teaser of what has been distracting me from my F-111 builds which should have priority.

The word "Strike" refers to which aircraft I am building as I have a second TSR2 on the go at the same time. This lets me know what bits to attach what to.

Finally starting to get somewhere after roughly a month of not doing much and doing lots that I have not listed here.

Recently I have been putting paint and decals on a model that has not been recorded here which I hope will be a nice change when I show it later this month.

Wheels have been received for one of my F-111 builds so I will have to get a move on with at least one of those and of couse the Cold War GB has started so I better get my finger out and get started with at least one or two builds for that!

Here is a little something that I have been finishing off over the festive season.



Details and better and more pictures once I have finished it which should be sometime over the weekend as I have a few other builds on the go at the moment as well.

You will find out in a couple of days NARSES2  ;D

Back story is already written and I have already decided to print it out to go with the model when on display at shows.  :rolleyes:

Having fun with the Cold War Group Build, unfortunately I keep getting ideas of what to pull from the stash to build, could easily start twelve or so models, the thing would be how many would I get finished in time?

You could sub-contract a few of them out to Dizzy maybe?  ;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! :)
