Looking really neat and tidy Gareth.
Most impressed I am. !

Thanks Kerry. Feel like I'm getting my mojo back. I think I'll pull the Phantom back out after this.
25. June at 16:26:11
Mr Mojo can be such a fickle guy at times mate.
I recently had a big conversation with him myself.
Cheers, and the Phantom is something I would love to see.

She's pretty much done. I might put some arming cables on the torpedos and parachute cap cord when I get back from my visit to the UK.

Have fun on this side of the pond! Your Lynx deserves a gallery of finished build on some single-coloured background

Thanks Łukasz, I keep meaning to buy a simple light box on eBay. You're right, the pictures don't show the blue finish properly.

Ok, so you were right Łukasz, the colour comes out a little better with the plain background

What a attention grabber Gareth! Terrific little dio! Love it!

Love it! fun and quirky

Thanks all. I'd lost my mojo after the last house move. The bench is far from set up properly, but I'd been itching to try making water on a base for a while. I found the wooden base in a craft shop for $1.50 and thought "oooooo, I know what I can do with that!" Think I will get on and finish my 1:48 phantom soon

Nicely done. Sometimes these little kits are the perfect pick me up. Kind of like a good scotch whiskey.

That simulator sounds like awesome fun !
I thought the services offered cheap PPL's to those serving though
Being at the controls of a flying machine is such a different experience to being a passenger etc.
And don't worry Holly, I won't say a word

Yes, the real aircraft are just big model kits, except they get broken regularly.
27. November 2015 at 03:34:52
Latest pictures....... my son's goalie helmet. Lost the modeling mojo a little, but not the creativity. Good practice with the airbrush.
16. March at 12:52:29
That is a beautiful paint job on the Helmet. Hope you get your MOJO back. From the pictures it sure looks like you had an exciting career. I still love it when a Heilo. flies over the house.

Thanks Clifford. I do miss working on the helicopters. I watch them fly over quite regularly with my job on the rooftops in Toronto and remember the smell, the sound and the feeling of being in, under and around operating helicopters.

A little more work on the intake. Creating the "soft V" inside with some plastic card and a piece of pen.

Nice collection. You mentioned service in the Navy and I detect a certain bias toward naval aviation.
Nice tip of the hat to the Canadian Armed Forces with the Hawk you have finished.
27. February 2014 at 02:59:49
Thanks Alan. Yes, I have quite the collection of Fleet Air Arm models waiting for my attention. I'm 23 years in the Royal Navy and still going. As for the Canadian connection, the wife is from Toronto.
28. February 2014 at 20:22:08
OK. I live in Courtice, just east of Toronto, next to Oshawa. I worked for a time in Scarborough as well. I grew up in Windsor, Ontario and after a few other places have settled here with my family.
I am collecting some kits to mark as Canadian vehicles, especially for the Ontario Regiment, which is based in Oshawa. I volunteer at the Regiment museum and wanted to finish some kits for their time in Italy in WWII.
28. February 2014 at 22:25:28
Great stuff, Gareth! I like the pic of the Swordfish on the Merlin. hehe
25. July 2015 at 00:33:52
What a pleasant surprise to find when logging back in after a few days away.
An awesome collection of aircraft Gareth.
Especially the Swordfish. !
But where did you get that launch controller from. ???
28. June 2018 at 02:40:38
great collection!, yes, the pilot is giving all his attention to the controller, no doubt

I some how missed your last comment Kerry. Thanks. Once again modellers like yourself are inspiring and help me up my game. I can hardly believe the improvements in my own work since joining this website.
2. October 2017 at 11:53:52
Gareth. The same applied to me too mate. The information and support one can obtain being part of SM is awesome.
I know, like you, all my modelling has become more worth while as it is out in the world stage now, and that has got to make us a tad more attentive to what we see, and, Do. hehehehe
Thank you too for your comment mate.
2. October 2017 at 12:05:18
Couldn't agree more Kerry and Gareth. You see/learn something new pretty much every day. And then you can get the nitty gritty as well from the masters themselves!! Most places charge for that sort of access.

I have managed to drop this model as well as all the other models in the large box I had put them in for the big house move last week. All seems repairable thankfully. On a bright note I watched a great model making video on YouTube about taking photos. I down loaded Snapseed and quite happy with what you can do just on your smart phone.

excellent result and great b/w pictures
