It is good, but then so are some of the Peruvian schemes.






It must be the altitude and the coca leaves.
Spot the common denominator?
Where did that Canberra come from?
I have a 2 seat SU-22 and now I have a scheme for it.

And finally, they have a unique take on infiltrating SpecOps troops...

The Boy is here again so no modelling today.  Instead we made scabbards for two of his swords.
We used cardboard box and parcel tape.  I wrote the swords names on in Mystic Runes and The Boy decorated them with drawings.  When shown to Mrs z and Nurse Smeets (who were digging the garden at the time) they enquired what sort of runes - Viking, Celtic, Elvish...
Internet Runes I replied...
Night's Edge is on the right.  Butter Sword is on the left.

You know don't you that there are people who would pay good money for that experience.

Nice work. The Peruvian schemes are nice and varied, but that blue scheme is still the best !

The Butter Sword is one of Finn's swords from the cartoon Adventure Time.
Adventure Time (set in the future after the "mushroom war") is supposed to be a kids show but when I watch it with The Boy I see a lot of subtle drug references.  Maybe it's just me.

When I get to building my Maritime Hind i'm thinking about the scheme from the 3rd one down but with the colours switched to the RoC Blue/Blue/Green shades.

Yes, if a helicopter was used instead I'd be one of them. ;D

I've always liked the idea after seeing the bounty hunters ship in The Chronicles of Riddick for the first time.

You'd have to suck everything in and raise legs and arms if the landing gear won't come down, even scarier!! :blink: :blink:

Finished a couple of cars today.  Just in time for the Ballarat NNL on Sunday. Both 1/24~1/25 obviously.

Hammonds Boliva FJ40 for the Top Gear challenge theme build.
This is based on the Italeri armed pick up.


Shadow Boxer dragster.
This is an AMT Hippy Hemi Chassis with a much modified 'AMT '51 Chevy body.


Proper pics after the show.

Terrific work on 'Shadow Boxer'!  :thumbsup: :bow:
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! :)

Thanks guys, glad you like them.
I just spent a few hours packing for tomorrow's show.  The cars were easy as I have packing them down pat - plastic storage boxes which are divided into 4 plus bubble wrap.  What took the time was building a travel box for the current Sky Pirates force - Henfield, FW-190 & N1K1.  And then gluing a new Lewis Gun onto the nose gunner of the Henfield as one had gone missing.

Whilst all that was going on I seem to have accidentally won an Airfix Bloodhound on Evil-Bay.  I feel a manned missile might be in my future...

So, Civ/Mil it GB.
Ignoring the civilianising of the Caproni and Cat D9 i'm already doing I have the following ideas;
1/24 Mitsubishi Delica Technical (although their current extremely irritating advertising campaign has put me right off Mitsubishi).
1/72 Revell FW200 cargo plane (possibly with 5 engines - or maybe with 3)
1/72 Mystery Inc. C119
1/35 AAV7 camper van
1/72 RAF Rescue Boat as either a cabin cruiser or a 1/25 race boat.
I'm sure i'll come up with a few more before the GB starts but i'm tending towards civilianising rather than militarising...
