Those are all very well done, Scran!

I especially like the prop blurs on that Beau!

Just finished:

The Fairey Delta 2 or FD2 (internal designation Type V within Fairey) was a British supersonic research aircraft produced by the Fairey Aviation Company in response to a specification from the Ministry of Supply for a specialised aircraft for conducting investigations into flight and control at transonic and supersonic speeds. Key features of the type include the adoption of a delta wing and a droop-nose. On 6 October 1954, the Delta 2 conducted its maiden flight, flown by Fairey test pilot Peter Twiss; a total of two aircraft would be produced. The Delta 2 was the final aircraft to be produced by Fairey as an independent manufacturer.

The Fairey Delta 2 is the first jet aircraft to exceed 1000 mph in level flight,[2] flying faster than the sun moves across the sky. On 10 March 1956, it set a new world speed record of 1,132 mph during a test flight. The Delta 2 held the absolute World Air Speed Record for over a year. It continued to be used for test flights, and was allocated to the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE) in 1958.

The kit was second-hand and had no transparencies, so the front cockpit is from a spitfire, modified to fit - not perfect but close.

The original decals fell apart so these are theoretical markings.

Enjoy

Looks every bit the credible test bed, Scran!

I especially like your work on the canopy. It's a bonus saving a kit like that.

Well done!

Beautiful job!!  If this is the old Frog kit (remolded under other names), I'm quite impressed because, IIRC, it didn't come with much in the way of transparencies when new.

Yes the VERY old Frog kit.

Side and top transparencies were created by taping over on the outside and using transparency glue (which drys clear)>

I had several vacform Spit canopies - was a matter of trial, cut, trial etc. till it looked reasonable

Beautiful work, all of it.  I will agree with Brian regarding that X-29; it is especially sweat.
