Does it really matter where he took the photos?? the main thing is he got them and to be fair if these had been mine I would have been extremely happy with them!

Re: Re-launched Aviation News magazine with FREE Fighters Po

That's fair enough and now looking at it from that point of view it makes sense. I wasn't in any way trying to put a negative vibe on it as that's not my style. Sorry if it came across that way and thank you for explaining it the way you have. Now looking back and reading what I wrote I really shoul...

Re: Re-launched Aviation News magazine with FREE Fighters Po

A few of those aren't even in service yet..... hardly fighters of the world. Its like going back to the sixties and having a poster of bombers of the world and sticking a TSR2 on it lol.

Re: Tremblers F3 pair......... 1-144 scale!

They are Dragon kits, I got these on order and I also have the 56 squadron F3s too, they are great for the size and as you can see there is a lot of detail.

Re: 3 Days At Mildenhall Inc The Cobra Ball Departing

Thanks for clearing that up, I had to ask at some point as I was on Google Earth looking at Offutt AFB and there is a Cobra Ball on the apron and you can see it clear as anything. Thanks again :biggrin:

I agree the panels on that weren't beaten with mallets, rather beaten with the ugly stick. Nice build :clap:

As much as I can't stand the F-14 I think this is great. i love miniature sized aircraft and this one awesome, I have loads of 1/300 scale aircraft to paint I'm just trying to find the time and patience to get some done. Well done :clap:

Re: F14 Tomcats GB Tophatters 80th Updated 8th July 2011

The level of detail in this model so far is just too much for my brain to take in! All I am going to say is you must have some real patience to work with photo etch, that stuff is a real nightmare, at least it was for me when trying to apply to my TSR2. I hope this is going behind a nice, safe, soli...
