Nice work, Tophe!

Here are some final photos of the FB.5 replica, I'm finishing work on the 1/48 version of WA201 and have started on the 1/72 RCN one. Good fun!

Yes, thanks for sharing this fun (and aesthetical deep emotion) with us!

Superb build Zac. I'd like to see more aircraft from the Curtiss-Fairey drawing boards.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Well TBG, the only ones I'll be doing are Kittiwakes, so get used to much of the same!  ;)

Nope, you're out of luck! The FB.5 was it, there are a couple of Mk.I/FB.1 and a few Mk.II/FB.2s in my future though.

That is the best and most potent looking P-40 I have ever seen!  (though it hardly looks like one anymore)  Congrats!

Oh my now that really finished up a treat, Your Lordship!

I don't think I've ever seen that famous Royal Navy scheme rendered more faithfully!

This beauty sure is easy on the eyes and then some!

Nicely done, Old Bean!
