HI Chris, Yes it is a Gazzelle and the idea was to convert the Monogram 1/32 scale Blue Thunder which is a kit currently available from Ki tech. This model was of the Blue Thunder which in its self was a conversion of a Gazzelle. I was intending on converting the kit back but in reality there would be very little of the doner kit left when completed so iof you allow a major conversion then I am in!!

Go for it Tigger. The rules are pretty much constrained to must have participated in a Tigermeet. When isn't an issue,nor does it matter if its a scratchbuild.

What a fantastic project...will love to see you craftmanship hit this one up.

I'd definitely be bringing the other Tigermeet builds as well...great idea.

Cheers Matty
PS I tweaked your title so you'd fit in.. :D

O.K Guys back o track now. I am still working on the Fisher Sea Fury but have started to plan the Gazelle out. Here is the donor kit. Still available from KI Tech, this was released years ago as a Monogram model . It is kind of ironic that I am going to convert a model of a conversion back to the orignal aircraft it was converted from! B)

These kits are readily available from Ebay. I bought this one from Hong Kong for about Ģ10 including the postage.

This is the kit contents.
Posted Image
This is the engine area which I will probaby use as a basis for detailing.
Posted Image
Here is the tail which is the other part of the kit which I will use.

Finally here is the G-91 I will have a go at too. :)
