    By to the A380

    Airbus is shutting down production. I've flown on it several times, it is quite an experience. The ones in service will be around for years to come but production of new ones will be ending. https://ca.yahoo.com/finance/news/death-superjumbo-jet-airbus-killing-a380-092404748.html

    Guess what? Another Lanc

    Yes looking great, I suspect Canadian built Mk X cockpit and nav area's were all black and British built Lanc's we not.

    USS Hornet Cv8

    I couldn't open the link saying I am not in the area which is weird Here is another short video. It's in amazing shape. Barely any rust or paint deterioration. Even the tractor tug looks just a few years old.
  4. Not plane related but plane inspired. I thought this was pretty interesting

    'Grace' type two-seat Spitfire in 1:32

    Hornet vs. Super Hornet?

    The only area that gave me a little grief on this kit were the intakes. The need a lot of Dremel work to make fit

    Takom 1/35 V2 Rocket

    Just in a quirky build mood and pulling out odd ball stuff. This one is very simple but fun to build. I'll do it up in the classic black and white test unit we are used to seeing. It's quite a large model, I was suprized.
  11. Thanks Here is the V2 build
  12. My kit just arrived yesterday and plan on starting it today. This will be my focus build for the GB but I do intend on doing the He-111 also. I am doing her as Phantom of the Ruhr More to come. Cheers

    Plane Savers

    Some of you may enjoy this. Mikey from Buffalo Airways has started his own YouTube episode outlining their efforts to restore a D-Day vet DC-3 to fly on the 75th anniversary of D-day. Pretty cool I thought. These clips are only 3-4 days old, filmed in Red Deer which is about an hours drive north of us here in Calgary.

    Hornet is flying into the sunset...

    Really? No need to be so sharp, I am sure not well liked or received here and certainly not friendly. "I am saying" no need for sayin.... "I said" in a condescending, manner Please be nice and be polite here. You were not clear at all on your original post yet your response to the only two who responded is pretty snotty.

    Lockheed Martin F-16CJ Blk 50 1/32

    Very well done

    first and last built..

    Same, I've been building since I was about 5 years old. I don't have a clue what was my first build was or if it was even a airplane. Back then if it stuck together with glue I built it but I was a huge 18 wheeler fan back then so I built a lot of those. until I was about 10 I do recall and old 1/25 AMT bulldozer kit from back then and just bought another last month for the stash as a nostalgia thing.

    They are only retiring their last operational C models. Not the E/F https://theaviationist.com/2019/01/29/u-s-navys-last-operational-f-a-18c-hornet-to-be-retired-on-feb-1-2019/

    They turned out well Ray

    HK Lancaster no. 3 to the GB

    I'm going with black. I know P-OS is green but I think many were black from the spar forward to aid in glare prevention and spare the crew from night blindness.

    Yet another HK Lancaster

    Nice start!
