Thanks, guys! :bow:


I dunno... it looks kinda big to me. ;)

This from the guy who motorises 1/144!? :unsure: ..... Yeah, I can see where you might think that. ;) I, on the other hand, think the opposite, as I usually build in 1/48. ;D

Props on the fins as a RW solution to tail sitting?

Thanks, Brad! :thumbsup:


I was wondering when someone was going to pick up on that. ;)

Very well done! 

How about taking a try at a B26?

The Martin one or the Douglas one?  ;D
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! :)

Would it be too much to say both?

Thank you, guys! :thumbsup:


Strangely, I ordered an Airfix 1/72 B-26B Marauder last night but, no, I won't be doing this to that. It will be joining my collection of 1/72 twin-engined bombers to be build RW, 'coz I have a thing for twin-engined bombers but not quite the budget or space for them in 1/48.

A flat-top Hampden could look good.
As could a P1Y1 Ginga.

Alternatively, a bubble top He.111.

Finally done (with the exception of a few touch-ups, which can wait).

Here she is, far from perfect but good enough for me:























Had trouble getting any depth to the focus on my photo's which, as you can see, I didn't overcome. Excuse the mess on the desk but this is the best focussed shot of the day:




Thanks everybody, for following along & your words of support. I hope "Jana" brings a smile to your faces & triggers ideas in your minds.


Cheers! :cheers:

No mames!!   I think it turned out WAY rad. She looks downright ANGRY and ready to mess some people up. The shark mouth is always a favorite touch.
