Re: Fat Albert and friends at Cambridge 7th July 2020

Interesting pics, good to see and thanks for posting. Would love to catch the Angel's C-130 in the air. Hopefully they'll be some test flying, bit of a heads up, and I'll be free- Fat Albert fat chance of all that coming together but fingers crossed!

Syerston 30.06.20

Hi All Popped over to Syerston this morning for the first Reds display of the morning- nice to have a 10 min drive to do some photography! Conditions were fairly unkind, but hopefully worth a peek from a little visited location. Plaque to victims of the Vulcan crash that happened at a display here- ...

Donna Nook 24.06.20

Hi all, Just a couple from Donna Nook today, AAC AH-64 conducting flare trials. Quality is pretty wretched due to the distance and extreme distortion and haze- I've pulled out what I can. Thought it might be worth a quick look, as I haven't seen this covered. Thanks for looking!... https://live.stat...

Re: Coningsby 23.06.20

Nice set. Thanks for posting. :thumb: I can understand the significance of the 12 Sqn fin badge, but a full colour fox head, alone, would be so much better. Agreed. Not a big fan of the shield type markings they seem so keen on. Don’t want to complain though- still so much better than a plain grey ...

Coningsby 23.06.20

Hi all, Headed over to Coningsby for a couple of hours this afternoon with the sole intention of getting a decent pic of one of the newly marked up 12sq Typhoons. Managed to bag one in good light, which was pleasing- Spit and Hurri were a nice bonus whilst waiting. The MTO scheme on the Spit actuall...

MOre Eagles from the (Middle) East 27.05.20

Hi all, Slogen has made an excellent job of covering the nose art, so just a few from me, hopefully worth a look. Tad over exposed and such, but in my defence I haven't had much practice recently... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49944511341_7dec9daebf_b.jpg IMG_4517 by Richard Taylor , on Flic...

RAF Mustang I - Lockdown Project 6

Hi all, Next in the increasingly lengthy line of lockdown builds- Italeri's Mustang I in 1:72 with II(AC) Sqn markings from an Xtradecals sheet. Nice to build something where everything, by and large, kinda fitted together! Went together pretty quick and looks alright by my standards. The next one m...

RAF Boston 'Beer is Best' Lockdown(?) Project 5.

Hi All Lockdown continues (in a fashion) and so does the 1/72 production line. Another US built type in RAF roundels. This time 88sqn RAF Douglas Boston, it's the Special Hobby Kit. Looked corking in the box, but assembly was challenging. The clear parts in particular- if I was told they were intend...
