Do the CH-37 with a pair of swept-exhaust 700 series Hercules ala the Bristol Freighter, or what the hell,
backdate it and use the forward exhaust collector Hercules from a Beaufighter.  ;D

Just recieved from the Big H via the man in the red van with the red trolley.

2 X Mikro Mir Blackburn Beverleys.

Looks good.
Only two transparencies, cockpit glazing and the nose position, all the rest are given as transfers. However there is a sheet of masks for the transparencies.
A small P/E fret, which as I have not read the instruction sheet, I have absolutely no idea what they are for!
Four colour schemes, one brown bomber and three, distinctly different N/M aircraft.
Interior detail looks OK, especially for this scale. Mine are likely to be fully closed up so I am not bothered about that.

2 parcels today.

From Jays in NZ - two 1/72 Heller DH Vampires.  Bagged with no decals.  Sold like that as "Vampire Lite" until they get thru own decal sheets designed.  One will be Soviet, the other may get a piston engine.

From BNA Model World - Assorted resin & Photo etch detail stuff for 1/35 armour and a 1/72 Italeri Macchi C.202.  This will be a paint whiff for the BoB GB.  I can report that like the Italeri C 205 the Port wing of the 202 is 1.5mm longer than the Starboard.
Fred

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.

.....and even longer wings!  ;D ;) :lol:

I am NOT going to build this, but my thoughts tend towards this:
Longer, yes.
A larger wing, yes.
Six engines, either six RR Tynes or Four Tynes and two auxiliary Vipers in pods.
This would have to be RAF, Brown Bomber.

Staying with the standard airframe.
Four RR Tynes but how about five blade props like the Sea Fury had.
Who would operate it, my thoughts tend towards RAAF in SEA camouflage.

I say again, I am NOT going to build any of these ideas.

Better off with a Heller Mistral - the russians wanted the Nene engined Vampires - and the longer wingtips of the Vampire 1/3.

Finally got my sticky mitts on a Scalextric 1/32 Ford Falcon XB.

It will be modified into a static Pursuit Special, in basic black of course.

As a bonus, I didn't realise they come with an interior and full driver figure. Easy to mod into Mr Rockatansky in his leathers...

One very happy modeller!  ;D  :thumbsup:

Cheers
