    Hey Wildcat, yes still around, made some brief visits over the past couple of weeks, but been busy. Didnt get to some of those models, spent much of the time finishing a 1/48 Tiger I, changing to individual 'click' together track links certainly took up some time!! but the end result was worth it ...what do you think?

    I know it doesn't have wings, but....

    Wow Wayne!
    Fantastic stuff, enjoy the expo:)
    Unfortunately I won't there this year:( Exams are next week and I really can't afford any time away. Although the study probably won't help :(

    Wayne, Looking forward to your finished Kate. I thoroughly enjoyed looking through your finished pics of the Pearl Harbor Val that you built a while back.

    Great stuff then and now...keep us up to date!

    Hi Guys, back from the Expo and have lots of pics to come.

    Wildcat, your right, need to get into something Aussie will give it some serious consideration, certainly have some subjects to do...and the Tiger got second place behind a another cat.. a Panther!

    Originally from Temora. You will thoroughly enjoy the Temora Aviation Museum. Their latest acquisition for restoration to flying standard is a Sabre jet. Enjoy!

    They've started restoration.."will be a few years"..but judging by their previous efforts,it will certainly happen.

    Returned from Temora today. Viewed the Sabre restoration. They expect the CAC Sabre Mk.32, which at one point in time, or still is, the RAAF's Historic Flight Sabre A94-983 to fly "May 2008". Surprised to learn that the Museum has 5 other Sabre airframes. Included in their stockpile are American F86Fs and Canadian Orenda powered Sabres. I was told told that once the Mk.32 is up and flying it will be returned to the RAAF at Point Cook, as they own it. The idea is to provide the Museum's Engineers with experience to carry out a cannibalised
    restoration from the remaining airframes. No original Sidewinders, but accurate replicas made from PVC piping!.
