Alan Rush 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
Gareth Windsor 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
Alan Rush 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
John E Great stuff, Gareth! I like the pic of the Swordfish on the Merlin. hehe
25. July 2015 at 00:33:52
Kerry COX 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
Spanjaard great collection!, yes, the pilot is giving all his attention to the controller, no doubt :D
29. June 2018 at 07:03:26
Dave Flitton Nice collection
29. June 2018 at 17:15:17

playtime 222 Excellent. Must get one on those pieces of ground equipment too - it's what my Dad worked on.
16. September at 16:38:51
Gareth Windsor Those Houchin ran forever. Great bits of ground equipment. They were slowly replaced through the 90's. Used them for maintenance and to start the Sea Kings. Where did your Dad work @playtime 222 ?
23. September at 03:06:59
Gareth Windsor Gloss coat on the seat to help "lock" the PE in place and give me a nice surface to do a little weathering.
23. September at 03:08:24
playtime 222 BZN amongst many, many other places 60s, 70s, 80s. Ground equipment was his thing.
23. September at 06:15:24
Spanjaard It took me ages to place all those transfers in my black bunny Phantom, some were not really a success for some reason, but you can say it is part of the weathering process :P
23. September at 08:57:05
Clifford Keesler Awesome looking seat.
23. September at 23:09:22
Gareth Windsor First seat is all together with only a few "Oh SHIT, where did that go!?" moments. I have gloss coated the seat to help lock the photo etch on and give me a nice surface to use oil paints to weather it. I was told on another forum that pilot and maintainers spilt coffee and trod all over them.
25. September at 14:46:01
Bryn Crandell The seat is amazing. At first I thought I was looking at the real thing. Then thought to myself that is one hell of a brush they use. Lots of fiddly PE bits. Worth it!

10. September at 17:18:18

Joerg R. It seems, they have some of the Ex-Auburn exhibits, thx for sharing
29. August at 09:14:48
Gareth Windsor Some of the tanks/verhicles; like the Cheiftan, are privately owned. Most of the armour is theirs though. They have a working Jagdpanzer turning up soon.

11. August 2018 at 16:05:17
Gareth Windsor Thanks all. I got the "wow, cool" from my son which made it all worth while. Once again I look back at how I was making models a few years ago and how they look now. It has a lot to do with members here. Inspiration, advice and encouragement.

Gareth Windsor 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.
16. July at 03:58:55
Łukasz Gliński Have fun on this side of the pond! Your Lynx deserves a gallery of finished build on some single-coloured background
16. July at 13:00:25
Gareth Windsor 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.
16. July at 16:34:28
Gareth Windsor Ok, so you were right Łukasz, the colour comes out a little better with the plain background

6. May at 17:56:09
Gareth Windsor 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
6. May at 18:24:44
Bryn Crandell Nicely done. Sometimes these little kits are the perfect pick me up. Kind of like a good scotch whiskey.

Choppa Nutta 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.
great fun :)

And don't worry Holly, I won't say a word :D

27. November 2015 at 03:34:52
Gareth Windsor 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
Clifford Keesler 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.
16. March at 18:26:52
Gareth Windsor 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.
16. March at 19:33:25
