    Hi all

    Just registered.
    Very interesting forum and knowledge
    base (just from reading through some of the posts).

    I am from Auckland New Zealand, and found out about
    this by reading a post on a New Zealand forum and
    thought I would join up (sorry Barf i'm not trying to stalk you).

    My interests are Military aviation (though I do like on occasion
    to build AFVs/Ships)

    My builds are various scales ranging from 1/24 - 1/154 scale

    I am currently trying to finish off an RNZAF 488 Squadron
    Brewster 330E Buffalo as flown in 1941 by F/O Noel Sharp,
    Kallang Singapore.
    Couple of photos

    And currently building a Short Sunderland Mk III,RAF 270 Squadron West Africa circa 1944,
    as flown by a RNZAF 490 Squadron veteran

    Look forward to posting more

    Regards

    Hi Alan, and welcome from England. The Buffalo looks good, and I'm interested in the Sunderland - looks to be 1/72nd scale from the photos?

    Hi Gents, Thanks for the welcome.

    Airframes- re the Sunderland, it's the Airfix one, I'm just adding to it to fix the
    inaccurate items (as far as posibble) and add an interior

    Regards

    Alan

    Thanks Alan, thought it might be that kit. Brings back memories from the '60's ! I quite fancy doing a Sunderland myself, although I prefe 1/48th scale, but even in 1/72nd it would need a fairly large base to display it 'on water'. Look forward to seeing some more pics - interior looks good so far.

    G'day Alan from the Great White North. Looks like you've got some nice projects on the go there and you should fit right into this place.
