Hoping for a better 2012!

Quick start to the year with this Airfix Lysander.



And things really slowed down with this Academy B-17F - converted to a YB-40.

but well worth the effort.

Next the Airfix Vertol

for the CBK boxart display


Then a Hasegawa A-6E Intruder in desert camo


Next something that's not an aircraft - but would be a welcome sight for downed aircrews! Yes the Airfix rescue launch


Followed by my rendition of the recently restored MeteorT7 - courtesy of Xtrakit


and my Airfix B26 Marauder - with weathered stripes


Nearly there with this post war TBM3 Avenger by Airfix.


And right down to the wire with this Academy TBF-1 Avenger.



Also, I repainted this Academy Corsair:


With leftover Airfix decals for a Goodwood aircraft

Some great work there, nice conversion on the 17.

I saw that meteor earlier this year when it came to RAF Odiham to get its paint job. Unfortuantly i didn't see it leave so haven't seen it in its finalcolours. I did get some nice piccies of it pre paint though.

Not really what I'd call a conversion - more a different scheme.

The father of one of my colleagues worked on the restoration - and asked me to make it for him.

Ha - you're thinking of that William Tell bloke with his crossbow.

For my recurve you need to think more King Harold.
