  1. Turns out to be fake in part, the 'Brass' had not arrived when this was going on. There was some creative editing by our National broadcaster (ABC) that got them in hot water over this report.
  2. Wow, that detail is microscopic Si, it looks so awesome!
  3. 1/72 Welsh Models P-8A Poseidon in the markings of A47-007 of 11SQN, RAAF complete. The build consisted of scratch building the weapons bay, weapons mounting points on the wings and pylons, many of the ESM and AMS lumps and antennas. I also added various vent blow in doors and the sonobuoy tubes. I reshaped a lot of the kit supplied parts as well.

I also recall they were doing an A320 but not much word on that recently. BTW I have my -800 as well. Need to get a lot of other bench stuff out of the way before I even think about starting it.
