So do I, plus 2 more Trackers, a Catalina, several bombers & a couple of ships that could be shoe-horned into the GB. :D

My issue, right now, is TIME & the lack thereof. :icon_crap:

Keeping an eye on the GB is one thing, finding time to build for it is a completely different kettle of fish! However, I shall keep trying to find some space! ;)

Looking at (not committed) Revell B-2 ATB for maritime patrol.   Could be combat or SAR type.   Have concept basics figured.
Point is to avoid overly complex mods so is buildable within time window.   Be traveling, can't start until mid May.

Just had a look at my Catalina.

1994 boxing (per ScaleMates) of the 1964 Airfix mould, manufactured by Heller in France, under the Humbrol umbrella. :-\

Bucket loads of flash & warped ... Oh, man, is it warped! :o


Still, it's the most likely candidate for this build, followed by my (original 1978 boxing) Hasegawa 1/72 Viking S-3A (the Italeri 1/48 S-A/B is going to require more time & effort than I can spare).

The Finnish Border Guard is looking for a replacement for the Dornier. I believe it will be something larger.

Started this a few years back and currently dabbling with it again (so a tad too far along for an entry here)

Unfortunately, I have to agree, Ray, it would have been great to see it in the GB. 8) :icon_crap:

Certainly can, Greg! I was hoping someone would look at UAV patrol aircraft/vessels.

I just remembered I have an ancient Bison kit in the stash. (The Soviet aircraft, not a Buffalo.) Itís mostly assembled but needs repair work and itís never been painted. Probably to far along but could be interesting. Iíve been wondering what to do with it for a long time.
