    In a parallel universe I am deeply involved in Free Flight Scale, this fall I placed four events, one that I had not expected was a traveling memorial for Walt Mooney, a founder of one of our events back in the 60's.

    They certainly will not get bested in a dog fight, and nor will Dave's by the look of them.

    Finally got my Sopwith Dolphin Complete. My daughter keeps wanting to play with it. Gives new meaning to "So Long and Thanks for the Fish!" Sorry for some of the flash glare. Use a gloss coat on this one and it wasn't happy with the flash.

    Thanks Wayne, the man was way ahead of his time, we're only just catching up with microlights.

    Florian those are really well built Pups, youve certainly cracked how to get a good glued joint on the struts, I've tended to reinforce my joints and get a big blob of epoxy glue which looks unsightly but is strong - so far Very nice.

    Florian, excellent work on the Pups.

    Dave, excellent work on the Pups - most lifelike The Lanc is fantastic by the way. Congrats on the competition redults.

    Ken, good job on the figures.

    Matt, liking what you are doing with the X-Wing stuff for BSG. Given me food for thought on how to re-purpose all my X-Wng models that I don’t use any more.

    Sorry it's not very aerodynamic but this is what's been keeping me away from WW1 planes, and it might give our American cousins a bit of a smile. I've been painting some of the inhabitants for my New Mexico town of Little Whiskey.

    I like the CDL colour you used on both your models.

    John, I would have expected a Pirate scene with all your RRRs lately - but your Wild West looks great.
