    Thanks for the update, all those rivets explain the lack of update pictures!

    Australian Avalon Airshow 2019

    Temora usually has big show, lots of Warbirds and the RAAF usually send something. I think Wings over Illawarra is a similar show. There is also sometimes a show in Darwin during exercise Pitch Blake, lots of modern military hardware there. That's the ones I know and I have never been to any of them. I had tickets to an Airshow at Amberley on September 2001, not surprisingly that didn't go ahead.

    You make it look so easy.

    Australian Avalon Airshow 2019

    Thanks for posting. I wasn't able to make it this year, so it's nice to see what I missed.
  5. I hate Vellejo paint, I could never get it to spray right and the consistency was always off. The paint would either be too thick or splatter everywhere. Funnily enough my dad swears by them.

    3D printed King Air

    I for one love the king air, especially in RAAF colours. One question, do you get surface detail like panels lines?

    A380 end of production

    Surely the low cost aviation market could fit them out with 800 seats and fly Brits to a sunny destination.

    Revell 1/48 Tornado GR.4

    I am 3/4 finished one that I brought from trademe about a year ago. Until recently there was still another from the same seller. Maybe it will pop up again. All the other model sites I buy from list it as sold out.

    Sweet. We await patiently.

    Kinetic CF188 1/48

    The older I get the more I realise taking the time to dry fit is the key to a nice model. However I still tend to rush to glue things together. You Sir have the patience of a saint.

    Any updates on this?

    Revell 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet

    Based on my experience with the Revell Tornado, this will be null and void when none of those broken down parts fit properly and you have to sand off half the detail.

    Favorite Air Museums?

    PIMA for sure and not just for the museum, I saw 5 A-10's in formation that day, F-16's, Apache's and a EC-130H. Udvar Hazy center because of the rare German WWII stuff. It's also nice to be able to look down from the walkway and see the topsides of some of the aircraft. Having never seen an F-14 fly, this view really gave me an appreciation of the shape and size of the beast. I also recommend the outdoor museum at Palmdale, CA, because where else can you see an A-12 and a SR-71 side by side? There is also the worlds only B-52F on display. I was there on a Sunday and the guide who opened up the museum was super nice guy, we bonded over our experiences with hard drinking Australians (he served in Vietnam on the same base as Australian Canberra crews).
