  1. I would even build this Panther if there was a kit.
  2. Even less of an excuse since it's based down in deepest Notland.
  3. The strut from the coaming to the top of the windscreen will be an interesting task. I won't be doing too much inside as I'm not opening the canopy.
  4. Jumping to conclusions again. We chat regularly on my Tumblr Origami Groupchat. She tells me that she wishes they did more Spitfires and she may take up the hobby. Does that sound believable?
  5. No matter..some lovely shots of SAS Landrovers here anyway: https://forums.kitmaker.net/t/where-was-the-land-rover-pink-panther-actually-deployed/7045/11
  6. The old and new at Prestwick this afternoon. The KC-135R is the 'Boss bird' ,58-0100, from the 100 ARW at RAF Mildenhall. It first entered service in 1959 as a KC-135A.

Note the absence of a military serial so I can't possibly build that ..I've already finished one civvy this month. Fortunately G-BEPV was formerly E-31 of the Royal Netherlands Air Force and even more fortunately, it then went to the Royal Netherlands Navy until it was retired in the early seventies. I'll be doing it in these markings. This is 'BEPV as it is preserved but the markings are near enough correct and it has the
  13. Later...much later. Need to restore my Whirlwind first.
  14. Point of order M'Lud. My learned friend makes that statement but I have absolutely no memory of such a promise.
