  1. I have one on pre-order and I'm undecided whether to do it as a VF-1, VF-111 or VF-124 jet. Although all the different blocks confuse me. I know the difference between the undernose pods, TF-30 as opposed to F-110 engines, and ECM bumps. But other than that I'm confused. 

  2. So this Lanc was one of 400 built at Armstrong-Whitworth at Baginton in Coventry. She is seen in the markings when she was on strength with 424 (Tiger) Sqdn RCAF from January-October 1945, which was based at Skipton-on-Swale as part of 6 Group Bomber Command. NG347 was scrapped in May 1947. Having Canadian heritage I had to do a Canadian operated one.

    And seen here with my recently completed Lanc B.Mk.II to give an indication of size.
