Rather than do separate threads for each, just do the one. B17 will be added at some stage, and possibly a short stirling.

first up. wellington 'R' for Robert. had to get this obviously!!

These are outstandingly done. I can only imagine the bravery and fortitude it took to fly in one of these things over occupied Europe. The neverending threat of flak and Luftwaffe attack must have been intense. Those that served in WW2 were really a great generation of men and women.

What do we have now I wonder? A generation of whiners and complainers who are always outraged about something or someone. They insist feelings outweigh facts and demand something for nothing. These hipsters have no idea what was sacrificed so that they can behave like petulant children throwing their toys from the pram when told, no.


If we ever have another Hitler and have to rely on this generation . . . We are well and truly screwed.

What an amazing array of models displayed here. How did I miss this? Spectacular as ever. The detailing on some is second to none. Always envious of the quality of your models. Great share.

As for DBs comments. Spot on!

Got this off a guy on ebay called MARTYN THOMAS. I won the  LANCASTER above from him last year. so I asked If he had a B-17 and he said he had and was doing next! so we agreed price of £60 with light weathering.  he only lived 20 odd miles from me, so I collected Friday after work. he has been modeling for 55 years and this is the FIRST B-17 he had one. and what a SUPERB job he has done.  pics don't do it justice guys. Enjoy!!!
