O, the Lightning looks fantastic, great work on the weathering, you must be really happy with it.
The Bplus (or is it a D minus?) is coming along well – nice work with the extra details.
BadLanguage, The Orion module looks amazing – that was a totally new one on me and I had to go and check it out, you have done a great job there.
Cliff that is some serious detail in the cockpit there
Gary, the Marauder looks like it is going to cause you some headaches – that is a serious short shot there.
Steve, I like the sound of your new 1/1 house – who manufactured the kit, and how big was the box it came in?
Mach1, racing along with the Falcon there, that is huge progress.

Here is my entry for the GB, a cross over with the just started Between the Wars GB. Go and have a look and see what you have in the stash!!

Rareplane's 1/72 Lockheed Vega as 'Winnie Mae' with Drawdecal decals. Vacforms are always fun, so let's see how it goes!

You're a braver man than me Piers with that vac. I've seen some unbeleavable builds come out of vac-u-form kits though.

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Mach71: Ohhhhhh she looks great! Love all the munitions you've loaded her up with! 

Piers: Never had the guts to build a vac-form kit and you don't see that many these days. Looking forward to seeing how you do this.

Thanks Gamera! This bird was begging for the biggest load it could get. I'm almost done with paint and decals and should have her wrapped up this weekend.

GAF: Looking forward to the B-26. I like your solution for the short-shot tail.

Piers> A classic aircraft, but I would never try a vac-u-form kit.  Good luck!

Mach> Look forward to see what you do with the F-16.  Gonna be good!

As for me, I've been kinda lazy about doing anything to the B-26.  What work I'm doing is trying to finish up another project for another GB.  When I get back to the B-26, I'll probably do something entirely different and save the repair for another day.

This bird is done! I don't normally work this fast, but every now and then I start a kit and it's off to the races.

Markings are from the 1997 Tiger Meet (according to Hasegawa's instruction sheet).

How about the first one for the gallery. Thanks for hosting this GB Modelcrazy.

A fine looking F-16!  Amazing how much they can lift into the air!

I peeled the masks off and finally got the paint overruns cleaned up. Glossed her last weekend and hopefully I'll get to decals tomorrow!

I got you up Mach. Thanks for joining, she's a beauty! Looks like it's going out to look for and cause some trouble. I like those Hase 16s.

The 38 is looking great Clif Yes
