  1. Richard: That is one lovely Mustang!!!! I just wish that I could finish my Big Mustang in Dennis Bradley's markings BA*U.
  2. Richard: Sorry to be so long in responding about the Mustang kit but computer problems and health situation have caused the delay. Apparently the guy that I had bought the kit from had started painting and test fitting bits and cutting sprue. The box has fallen apart and is in no shape to ship. It is really an ugly mess! Regards Barney
  3. Hi Richard. I have a 1/24 scale Mustang in the stash and it is yours if you want to do another. Very nice work by the way! Regards Barney
  4. Hin Bill: I have over 50 photos of the one here in Vancouver..formerly Race 80...if you need any detail shots. Barney
  5. Once again the Master Plastic Manipulator has produced a winner! The winters at Rivers, Manitoba...-40*F with a 40 knot wind..would freeze the balls off a brass monkey. The last statement has a true story behind it Barney
  6. Bill: Send me your email address and I will forward a pic of 714 taken in 1954 Barney barneydhc82@hotmail.com
  7. Bill: in a word....BEAUTIFUL! Barney
  8. Another wine Billr! I flew Army 713 a few years ago and another out of Saskatoon storage for the Air Cadet glider program Barney
  9. Welcome back Richard! You"ve done a beautiful job on the Mustang. My modelling days are over as I seemed to have P...d-off Mother Nature and now all I can do is watch the progress of others. I.ve got another of the original Airfix kits if you need. Barney
  10. Looks good Bill! A friend, Col. John McGreggor flew the L-9 n the CDN Army and after he retired, bought "713" and had it restored to original configuration. Regards Barney
  11. Beautiful piece of work. Harry would love it Barney
  12. Harry Hardy, the pilot of Pulverizer IV would love to see this one. A few years ago I built the 1;48 version and Harry signed the underside of the wing. Barney
  13. Just think what you could do with a 1:32 scale C-47/DC-3: cabin lights, cockpit lights nav lights landing lights, anti collision lights...geared electric motors buried in the P&W crankcases....All in fibreop[tics and mini LEDs. Did it all in my 1;48 Monogram DC-3 as RCAF 1000, VIP Transport from 412 Sqn. Would love to build this LSP Racer but eyes and hands have failed to co-operate Barnys
  14. Beautiful work Brian. This is quite similar but more detailed than my AirShow Models Extra 300 and 300L ..particularly that Lycoming 540. Being a wrench twister from away back,..the tube structure and the pitch and mixture controls are really oversized...But all of it looks great! I'm not building models any more due to loss of vision but I still enjoy trying to see work like yours. Barney
  15. The photo on the left will have to suffice as I have no way of posting a current photo . It sure would be nice to be young again! Barny

  17. gottaloveaTigerMoth.Greatbuild! Barney
  18. I've been following this thread with interest. In 1979 I was privileged to be asked to test fly a totally rebuilt Gypsy Moth , Dh60M.I have photos but no way pf showing them as Photobucket is holding them for ransom Barney
  19. Nice work Peter. I used the same wing spar method on my 1:48 scale CC-130E then used the brass spar as part of the electrical system. Worked out perfectly Barney http://www.barneysairforce.com
