Other than repairing the damage from the move, I have just a 1/48 scale Cessna 310D on the go. The wooden collection did much better than the plastic one.

The 310 fuselage is rough sanded and the tail feathers await some final minor sanding and priming. The wings, engine nacelle and tip tanks are still in block form.

Will be starting  three - 1/72 Halifax Mk III. Two will be for gifts. They won't be finished before Christmas but so be it. C'est la vie. Also  have a 1/40 mosquito with the fuselage rough cut, so I'll probably work on it in parallel with the Halifax's.

I don't have a Halifax and will eventually make one someday. For now I will forward to your building two off them.

Photos of Ken N's excellent Comet have been added to the SMM Annual Album and the Group Build Index posts.

My F104 is nearing completion, the mahogany is looking good with the water soluble varnish, (cedar loses it's red and becomes pink with this finish) The pitot tube  and tip tanks are next. This is a gift for a friend who flew them in Germany and the U.S. He also received an F4 Phantom as he flew them in Vietnam. Now, I could finish my Liberator, Tracker, ,or U 2. Or start the Boeing Vertol helicopter....choices, choices! 

Everything will be on hold as we leave for Mexico Wed (just for a week) and knives are best left at home.

Pete's F-104 has been added to the Cook Up Index but I think there was another F-104 built but I don't find anything in the gallery. If anyone knows where it is please let me know.

27 models constructed to date with hopefully a few additions before year's end. I ask everyone to check to see if I missed any 2016 models in the yearbook.

Hi Lou:

You may wish to add the Spitfire and P-51D Mustang toys.  Pictures are posted under my building board. Both are 1/32 scale. One minor correction - The DH-88 Comet is also 1/32 scale.

  Wishing everyone the compliments of the Season and all the very best for the New Year.

  The XFT-1 should be finished by the end of the year.

  The plan for next year is to finish the Flycatcher, CH-1 and the CA-15. ( been saying that for a few years)

  I also plan to do something from WW1, an early post WW1 airliner and an early (?) jet or two. I will have a go at molding a canopy as well.

 I have a lot of the Aeromodeller drawings by G.A Cox. The H P Heyford which I've taken up to 1/48 gets perused a fair bit.

 Well that's the plan any way.


 Again all the best to everyone and catch up in the New Year.

 Cheers

 Gordon

Lou, I did an F104 a few years ago. I used basswood (that one stays in my collection)  I think it looks better than the mahogany one.
