And thats just his Canadian aircraft! :worship:

Geez, it would take me a lifetime to build that many models, how the heck do you do it and still maintain a high build quality Shawn?

Charlie, why do you keep showing that god awful 32nd scale Hornet. It's not like you won anything with it, so why keep showing it? :cheers::woot.gif:

Cool in such a small size. That scheme is the GB prize that I'm offering up for this one - in 1/32.

Funny thing no one remembers the unofficial 1991 scheme which is the one I've depicted A/C 188769. The 1992 Official scheme which Leading Edge depicted is the one most remember The officially sanctioned A/C 188764.

Both Just really Cool birds.

:whistle:

Very good point - I got mine mixed up. I had seen both schemes, but somehow I keep getting the two confused, given they look very similar, and the tail numbers are nearly the same.

Here's a whiffer I did a loooooong time ago, turned an old B-66 into a Canadian exec jet. Perhaps I'll post more, and a back story, for Silly Week:

Hey all

I'm somewhat of a lurker on this forum but I'm psyched to contribute in this one GB. I don't have many Canadian aircraft, which is kinda sad given I live here.

1/72 Hasegawa Mustang IV 442 Squadron RCAF (OOB)

2c12.jpg

1/72 Tamiya Robert Hampton Gray's Corsair 1841 Squadron, Royal Navy.

1f3.jpg

1/72 MPM Welly III 402 Allouette Squadron RCAF (this was a weekend build... so quality wasn't the best.... that and this aircraft was heavily sooted.)

Richard, Those aircraft look very nice, I really like the Mustang. I've been wanting to do one of those in 1/48 or 1/32 some day. A late friend of my father's flew with 425 Alouette Squadron during the war, he could have very much flown on tha pericular Wellington.

Alright,

I'm seriously thinking of jumping in on this one. Got the Revell P-3 kit + some Eduard photoetch, with plenty of updating planned. My big concern is availability of complete decals that are up to date.

My insipration:

Welcome to the GB, Id love to see that Aurora built. Check out www.CanMilAir.com, they do all kinds of custom decals for Canadian MIlitary aircraft, you could have a set done for a specific airferame even. There is also a discount available for GB entrants, send me a PM to find out how.

FlightDecs was also supposed to release a set of 1/72 decals for the CP-140. Check them out at www.flightdecs.ca

Now you tell me!

I just received "shipped" notice on my Argus decals. And by the time I get to doing a 407 Sqn Aurora, the GB'll be over.

But no matter - the decals aren't terribly priced anyways! :)

I've sent a few inquiring emails to Flightdecs with no response. Is CanMilAir able to do a full, up to date sheet with all the stencils?

Yes they do, 229, 230 and *231 are the ones I might use one day if I ever find a 1/72 Argus.

(*most likely) Bill also as sheet 494 which is decals to represent the windows for the Argus.

I don't have a PM from you in my inbox, so...

I look forward to getting the decals. I also ordered the window set, since I'm using a vacform kit as a basis. Not much fun. But it /is/ giving me practice on seamwork! Will probably start working on the MAD boom today.

I'm sure CanMilAir will have it, but are there any other sources for 1/144 or 1/72 decals for a 407 Sqn lightning-stripe Aurora? The other day I found the 407 Sqn patch I got when I was a Cadet (it has a white lightning-stripe Aurora on it), so I'd like to do one of those eventually.

I have a decal set for a lightning-stripe Neptune (Arrow Graphics, 1/72). But I'm rather uncertain what to do. Apart from the Argus (1/144) and a Hungarian MiG-21PF I did as a memorial (1/48), I build in 1/72 - hence why I got the Neptune decals in that scale. But with the Argus underway in 1/144, I was thinking that perhaps I should do all the big Canadian ASW planes (Argus, Aurora, Neptune, Tracker) in 1/144. But... is there a 1/144 Neptune besides the Aeroclub kit? How hard is that to find? Or a Tracker in 1/144? I doubt severely I'll find a Britannia in 1/72 to kitbash... I've seen only a vacform kit that went for 86 quid on ebay... so I dunno what to do!
