And here's my 'stealth' Canberra. (Not the best photo, but you get the idea.)

A search on HyperScale seems to indicate my first posted model here was in May, 2012, in the One Kit GB. Featured was the 1986 Hurricane Mk.I.

Original photos are long since purged from Photobucket. New shots of the same model.

Adios, Larry.

I guess, technically, my first submission would have been my 1/8th scale scratch built radio control Hellcat.  But my first plastic submission, and in fact my first plastic model in about 25 years, was the Matchbox Hawker Tempest II.  The Tempest is now complete with Pakistani markings so I guess I should get some updated photos!

That CAC was too nice to let go. Beautiful!

Thanks to our friends at Photobucket, this is the oldest one that I could access.  The first was the Airfix LVT.




Best regards,

So, after not being around here for over a year, I poke my head in and find out it's been ten(10) !!! years since we started this?

Someone suggested celebrating the ten year anniversary by posting the old post from ten years ago.....

This was my very first post in the "Airfix forum":

" September 16th, 2008, 12:38 am #1

I was house sitting my girlfriends house for a few days while she was away on business. I'm not much for TV so I desided to build a model. She had black, white and blue acrylic paint only. A nasty paintbrush like one gets in a cheap water color set and some Zap super glue I had stashed a few months ago. I found this kit for $ 4.00 in a crushed moldy box at Dave's Hobby Shop near Oceanside, LI. Decals seemed to have survived so home I went. Was assembled and painted in about 3 hours. A sparkling kitchen floor and a familer smell told me a bottle of Future was around somewhere. A coat of that, some very hot water and thinned Elmers glue got the decals to stay flat.

Everything was done with just what I had on hand, like we used to build models before we all had to have airbrushes and 200 different colors.

Or, ... like when we were seven..."

So I have no shots from the old shoot but the model is still in the display case, here re-shot with my smart phone.....

That’s absolutely brilliant improvisation! Very nicely finished.

Adios, Larry.

My first submission was a Bf 109E in 1/24 scale. It was December 9th, 2011. This was the finished model:



Greetings to all,

Not sure how you dredged that up Bjorn, but yup that was it.  Fun to see all the cool old builds here.
Best regards,
