Crop those lil things are looking great for their size!! Impossible to rig? Maybe but I think the worst thingwould be finding something small enough in diameter to not look like sewer pipes between the struts lol.

OK, finally done with fifteen 1/400 L'Arsenal Swordfish in two different camo schemes. No rigging.  There are torpedoes under some and external fuel tanks for all.

L'Arsenal 1/400 Swordfish 1 of 2

L'Arsenal Swordfish 2 of 2

 

 

Construction wasn't easy (times 15) and many a Stringbag was sent to the maintenance depot to deal with collapsed struts. As to be expected, by the tenth or so Swordfish I got better at construction but let's just say I'm not planning on repeating this endeavor any time soon.

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

Mac -- nice scene. I especially like the guy with his head  in the cowling.  Adding figures doing something makes the modeling work so much more evocative.

Funny thing, my wife was out drinking with Captain Bondoman, and he was whining about getting out his 1/400 "Lusty"...

She wasn't impressed and took away his beer.

 

Arrgh!

And one of these days in the coming year I'll finish up the Shar I entered into this GB and perhaps start another one of the many FAA subjects that I have in my stash...

Well well well...  Seems there are still a few scurvy types still in action.  I'll have to dig something out of the stash for this if I'm not hung for going AWOL first.

John, as you know doubt remember the subject alternates between FAA and RAF, and since no one can remember by now where we are either one is fine.  I'm doing a Tamiya Lancaster.  When we get enough guys having fun we can get back into that rotation, eh?
