Delta Bede is looking good Brad F.

If you can make it across to next years Expo there's a bed here for you.

 :thumbsup: cheers, will keep that in mind.

After spending much more on kits than I intended I had better start putting some of them together soon, struggling to come up with a plan for any of them yet though, several will be put aside for use in my fictional aviation business but the other fodder kits I haven't got a clue...  :-\

Was going to put a CA-13 together for the out of retirement GB as it fit's into my own what if storyline but all my building equipment is in chaos at the moment due to moving house, may yet have time to get it together for the GB but I don't want to rush it so probably won't get to making a start before the GB is over...

Got a desk to use and I have found all my tools, paint's and brushes etc... So I may make a start on a Boomerang, still not certain how to paint it up yet and only have a partial hodge podge back story. Basically it will be a support attack aircraft for ground defences of the aircraft company's own diamond mine (thought that would be a good way for the company to fund it's projects and infrastructure) but during the period of the CA-13's being used there was not much if any air opposition, and I'm yet to decide where the mine would be so camouflage is a unknown at this stage... :unsure:

Sounds like a plan Brad F. :thumbsup:
Put it somewhere with predominantly red dirt and you could use something like this.

Neat Heinkel :mellow: :thumbsup: and I was thinking along those line's for camo.

Good suggestion but Australia has too few potential 'enemy' forces, B.A.E. (Boomerang Aviation Enterprises, no affiliation with the other B.A.E  :rolleyes: ) will be based somewhere in Aus but the diamond mine will be elsewhere in the world, maybe Africa... :unsure:

Absolutely.  Post war africa has heaps of potential - secret nazi bases, soviet interference, Wakanda, The deep woods of Bangalla...

Soviet interference... Hmmm that works in well, the aircraft the mercenary air force encounter at some point are of Russian origin...  :mellow:

And secret Nazi bases also works in well, explains where B.A.E acquired German machinery.  :mellow: :thumbsup:

Have not been doing any building at all for a long time now, spirit is willing etc... But yeah... Spending most of my time preventing our now 10 month old (wow time flies!) from getting up to too much mischief. Have been purchasing second hand r/c models rather frequently though, count is now 6 helicopter's (4 of them work, the other 2 have become parts donors for the working ones) and 2 tailsitting VTOL's, flying those have kept me sane and gotten the little one interested in flying things, now she looks at bird's and any full size aircraft that come near.  :lol: :mellow:

Although I have just picked up a very cheap 1/800 aircraft carrier I doubt I'll have time to build it for the GB so I think I'll stick to the original reason I purchased it and that's to use the aircraft as 1/72 or 1/48  r/c planes... Also just won some eBay bids on a special hobby yak-17 and Focke Wulf p.II, can't think of a naval use for either of those.

Anything can be navalised by painting it blue, scribing fold lines on the wings and adding a hook.
