    lol - well that hadn't actually occurred to me, Phil, but probably would be great for destroyed objectives. They are part of a set of generic blast craters off eBay.

    They are nice craters, Chris. They look like some of the potholes around NE Ohio

    Caudron G3 - which I have had in the "To do" box for so long I cannot remember who the designer was - apologies. I think it was one from Decapod.
    Paints all Vallejo - Mainly a mix of Golden Brown and Golden Yellow with a touch of white added (more so for the G4 below); Other colours used - Red Leather, Sky Blue, Red, Medium Sea Grey and Oily Steel.
    Decals: numbers and British roundels (G100 below) by Miscmini and French roundels by Skelton.

    Caudron G4 - Apologies, again designer unknown. No pilot so probably Decapod?

    Sharp eyes amongst you may spot a blemish on the upper plane of the Caudron G3, just above where the pilot would sit. I'm afraid, in my enthusiasm to drill a hole through the base of the fuselage, to act as a seat for the ball bearing, I drilled right through the cockpit and hit the wing. For around five seconds of panic, trying to find the off button, the poor little Caudron G3 was wizzing around in circles faster that it could ever have done in real life Decided to keep the blemish as a reminder to try and avoid such a catastrophe again

    Mike, I like that you go the extra mile to display your models 'flying' over a village or landscape. I wouldn't have any trouble spotting that G3 on the table.

    Done in honour of Tim's enormous number of victories during Origins this year. Although I was tempted to put him in a flying boat after an earlier comment he posted.

    Tim, if only I had found an appropriate good photo of Steffi, I would have used that amazing model, but sadly I don't have one. Next time perhaps.

    Have to say, I was also tempted to put myself in a Camel and place it in a position about to collide, but thought better of it
