SODs Spad ...(SOD is Stephen O'Donnell, right back for Partick Thistle F.C.) I found the colour scheme whilst researching No.1 "Thistle" Sqn aircraft. This one is from No.5 "Comet" Sqn....but it has plenty of red & yellow on it!

Excellent stuff - the shop dio is particularly interesting. That's how I often remember model shop windows in the 70's!

Wow, love your diorama of the gift shop! Wish I could remember enough of the shop window when I first bought a model... :sad:
Great work on the others, and that Cougar seat with pilot looks very much like the 'pilot' from the Alien movies... :-D

Cheers!

Viking warrior, converted from the Airfix English Pikeman. The eyeguard is a shoulder epaulette from a War of Independence infantryman, and his pigtails are made with cords from the infantrymans flag
