Eagle looks great!  :thumbsup: :mellow:

Has me thinking of other possible RAAF anniversary style paint jobs on what the RAAF has actually used/is using...
White tailed PC-9 (or PC-21 or Hawk) like a Wirraway
C-130 or Caribou like a Dakota
F/A-18 in the 'Grey Nurse' Spitfire scheme...

Thanks Brad F.

An F-35 in a white tail Boomerang or Kittyhawk scheme would be good.  Unfortunately there doesn't seem to have been an RAAF P40 with both a white tail AND a sharks mouth.

Somebody should remedy that then...  ;)

Coincidentally I have two P40s in the stash...

Uncle duty this weekend so not much done other than a bit more camo on the Royce and some Lego building.  Mrs z built a chopper and I built a SAM and shot it down.

You should have gone in for the 'Lego Masters' thing, then...  ;D

Well, that was what inspired her.

We've been watching Lego Masters.  The competitors have some serious Lego mojo.  As an Engineer by training I was particularly impressed with the bridge building challenge.
Maybe we could come up with a Whiff Masters competition...

I either forget that it's on or I have no reception when it is, as a result I have only watched the last 30 min or so of the first two episodes  :angry:

We've got the third episode this week, so no-one's left yet.

But from what's been on already, there are some seriously talented people out there playing with bricks...

This week is the Finals here.
Brad F, if you can stream it then all the episodes are on ABC iView.

You will Brad C.  They will surely make a US version and (like happened to Ninja Warrior) it'll be bigger and louder and have more razzamatazz.

Should you know anyone criminal enough to illegally download tv shows then they might find that if they search for Lego Masters AU then they will find episodes can be bit torrented.
Allegedly.
