Hi all this is my first post on the forum proper, if you've seen my fist post saying hello you'll know I quite like Canberra's but that's not my only passion. I also have a big interest in Meteorological research Aircraft and R&D types in general.

 

This is my most resent it's a NOAA WP.2D Orion built using the Revell boxing of the old but rather good Hasegawa kit. I did all the mod's myself using milliput and other bit's and bob's, the markings are home made too, on the PC. I hope you like it. :)

Nice Orion build! That 130 looks too much like a mosquito for my taste, tho...:D

Interesting choice of subject matter - nice to see something different, and you do them justice!

Thanks again chaps, I'm glad you're liking them, Mosquito! Bob, you're right, it doesn't half ting if you prick yourself! I know from experience :) Now I know I said I wouldn't post any more photo's but while we're on a role I thought I'd stick these two in for your perusal.

 

The first one is the 1/72 scale Matchbox twin Otter as flown by NASA I'll be building the NOAA one at some point. As with all the others all home made markings and Mod's

Hi VonL

 

Yes it's another one of my home made mod's I can't remember now what I used exactly, but it was a drop tank from a 1/48 scale kit, Hunter or F.18? the ball for the camera turret was a chrome bead from a craft shop, I needed something with a mirror finish and the indispensable milliput! I just masked of a circle painted every thing black then added a grey coloured spot in the centre.
