Tengah Scramble

My usual take on two `Tigers` on a practice scramble circa 1970 from RAF Tengah. Airfix 1/72 kits. First picture was my inspiration for the build. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7864/46199651695_b6ef8d63e4_c.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7831/33309538058_6ee40e5c7c_c.jpg https://farm8.staticfli...

Falklands Fox Two

Final build for display at the upcoming 50th Harrier event at NAM in April. Again another rehash of a diorama subject I did a couple of years ago, minus the Argentine Skyhawk. It`s the `not perfect but good enough for this type of build` Hase 1/48 kit, base from Coastal Kits and cheap frame from Evi...

Falkland Ejection

Built for the upcoming 50th Harrier Event at NAM, some may remember I made the same in-flight dio a few years back, albeit a little cruder. Hopefully I`ve improved it a tad in this reincarnation. For those new, the story goes like this. Squadron Leader Bob Iveson left HMS Hermes as part of of a stri...

Re: `Repeat Please`

Nice but why are the ME 109's in RAF markings ,thought the clip was all Hurricans ?? Only 3 Hurricanes were airworthy at the time of production so some Buchons were painted in RAF colours and used as background `extras` to make up numbers. Note the 3 aircraft in the background of this screen grab.....

Re: Red Top Lightning

Thanks chaps. Yep, 1/48 scale and a very old but wonderful kit in my view. The rod is indeed acrylic, this one being either 6 or 8 mil. Easy enough to find on eBay as is the wooden plinth. Both cost approx. £4 each IIRC but the £8 addition to the build is better then the headache of making it yourse...

Re: International Aviation Academy Norwich

Just a quick update in that the display of the major types to operate out of Horsham St Faith/Norwich Airport has now been more or less completed with just a 1/72 Hunter to add. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1931/45582261552_c6d63170e8_c.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1976/43815130040_a9bf5cfd5...

Re: Wattisham July 1992 Phantom finale.

Great shots and thanks for posting, although as Weazel69 states, this was mainly for 56`s stand down Phantom Phinale event, hence the 56 Lightning, 56 F.3. and lack of 74 participants.

74 were still operational with the Phantom for another 3 months after this and had their own Phinale.
