Remember, no more work until 00.01 Wednesday 1st November 2017!

No problem.  I've got plenty else to keep me busy.
Thanks!

....and Airfix have timed their Walrus to perfection...and in the RIGHT scale :wacko: (bloody nitpickers!!).

What! They've released a 1/72 version?

Are pixel works OK for this GB (without plastic/resin/balsa build)?

I would imagine so Tophe. but I'll consult with my fellow mods for a ruling. Watch this space.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Unanimous "Yes", Tophe - & anyone else who wants to do any form of art, digital or otherwise.

I have it in mind to turn a fairly horrible Kora Be-4 into a Porco-Rosso support plane, however I'm making no guarantees that I'll find the time...

The model has horrible clear parts and the engine is a bit too 1940s for PR with it's long-chord NACA cowling, so the idea is to back-date it a bit with an open cockpit, small windscreens and an exposed engine. I did buy a resin M-62 with this is mind, but it looks lost on the huge engine nacelle. Hmm...

I am planning the forced marriage of a Duck and a Firefly which will be christened either Direfly or Firef**k depending on how many threatening messages I get from the mods...

I'll hunt you down and kill you if you don't call it a Firef**k.

Please explain your thinking on this before we can make a judgement.
