    100_0873_640x480.JPG Hello All! This is my first photo post so take pity on my modelling, computer and photographic skills. I am not used to showing my work to others (not knowing any other modellers) but what the hell, jump in with both feet.

    Thank you very much one and all. Orion, the Tamiya Wildcat is the easiest to assemble and most accurate of the 1/48th kits. That having been said, Hobby Boss is not to far behind and they do have all makes available. I have just started the process of converting a Hobby Boss F4F-3 into a FAA Martlet Mk. I. Once I get past scratchbuilding a new cowl and rescribing the wings it should be a slide.

    High praise indeed! Thank you kind sir, but I have to admit it is one of my favorite planes. I always root for the underdog.

    Thank you all again. I shall post more as I finish them. Not really sure if it is right to post models I did before joining the forum. Cool or not?
