Very nice Skua and Defiant gentlemen.  Thanks for sharing your builds.  I hope to get back into "solid" mode a bit in the new year.  Building a peanut scale flying model at the moment. 
Merry Christmas.

Thank you Paul and Mark.

The second Defiant is done. It belongs to No 2 Squadron RAF. Defiant F Mk I, N1572/KO-I, Clifton, September 1940. That makes a total of thirty 1/72 WWII ID Plus models in my collection.

Gordon will your Roc be completed by year end?
Pete will your Defiant be completed by year end?

 Update on the Roc.

 Painting,decals and turret done.
 Knocking up a spinner, propeller and a radio mast.
 At this pace it will be finished by the 31st (my time).

 Blackburn  Roc Finished.
 Turret is "relocatable " not rotatable and guns are fixed at that angle.
  Propeller from "black" plastic ice cream container. Spinner from an already rounded bamboo chopstick.
  Home made decals for both the Skua and the ROC
 Painted as L3084.
 Used as a trials aircraft and as a floatplane too( there's something for the future).
 It was last seen as an engine test rig in August 1945.

 Can I suggest that the Helldiver be kept on the list if a quicky build is done in the future.


 Enjoyed it .

 Some pictures

  Cheers

  Gordon

The only other Roc I found was in the Eugene Hartl Collection. These photos were posted to the original site. Was that the one you found?
