Good work Paul.

Love the GT500 and the Cobra,Debs'll be in the market for a new keyboard and screen when she's finished salivating

over that DERA "Snoopy" Met.Flight Albert(she used to fly it)and the red and white Aeroflight Jav looks good too.

Is the Jav Airfix 1/48th based or 1/72nd?.

That Mossie looks familiar,not someone's that run's this show is it?

Just as I thought,he's snook it in there !!!!xD

Hmmm,that Jav could be the Plastyk kit then,they do one in Aeroflight's colours.

The real one at Dux.looked an absolute doozy until they repainted it and covered all of Aeroflight's markings:|

Thanks mate 

Welcome and that.

Tell you what though,that "Berlin Brigade" cammo'd F/A.18 makes my eyes go funny.

Did the Yank Navy really paint 'em like that or is it a whiffer?

The shine on that Cobra and '500 Snake are fantastic.

They did mate digital camo. Look up some of the 2012 CONA navy schemes they did some real beauties

God's teeth!!!!

I pity the poor soul who had to fly that,no wonder his visor's down.

It makes you wonder if the SHar didn't go out of service because it knew what might be coming at it's next major.............

Yep, the Plastyk has Frog origins (the parts are interchangeable), but it's been greatly tidied up and has engraved panel lines. I have one lurking in the stash somewhere. I think the original Frog tooling was pretty much destroyed (like the Sea Vixen) by people operating injection moulding plant who didn't actually know what they were doing.
