A fantastic year's output SP ! Every one of them is built to a standard of finish I can only dream of achieving. The Skyraider is particularly fetching and the NMF on the F105 and Hustler is exemplary. I take my hat off to an excellent modeller mate! And an excellent year's output.

If it wasn't for the fact that you are thousands of miles away I'd be knocking on your door to ask to come in and see how it's done.

PS. As a CBK enthusiast I love the Hurricane photographed with the classic header card!

A nice years output. The esci harrier looks to be a reasonable base kit for a build in that scale.

A most impressive set of builds - no special favourites, but the Hustler is exceptional.

A really great set of builds there, David and it's hard to pick a favourite but if you pushed me it would have to be that Airfix Skyraider - that is one of the nicest builds of that old classic that I've seen, right down to the characteristic ripples in the fuselage sides which show a great eye for detail.

I can only dream of your excellent output, beautiful work, the Hustler and the Spad are stand outs 8-) 8-) 8-)

Thanks, chaps!
For someone who is still a bit scared of NMF, the Hustler and Thunderchief are among my favourites (though not strictly NMF!), plus the Comet and the little 109.

Cheers,

David
