    Nice one Bruce! Should be an impressively large model when done mate.
    Yep, looks like a good selection so far, and a heck of a lot of choices over such an extended time period. Keep 'em coming!!

    Nice choice Bruce, I'll be eyeing this one with interest as I have a Tamiya 1:32 Tomcat sitting in the stash..

    Nice choice Bruce. I have recently got the Tomcat fever and been collecting and building as many as I can find (1/144 scale). I look forward to seeing what a real modeler can do with on in 1/48. I even think I have a "Be-Deviler" in 1/144.
