Here is This is my Christmas/Covid effort. Decided to do a civilian airliner theme, apart from the fact some Handley Page 00/400's were converted to airliners, thats as far as my use of refrences went.....the rest was poetic licence and a typical 1920's colour scheme!  Was tempted to paint "Covidair" on the fuselage.....Top pic is the HP "airborne" in my office!

Revell 1/72 Junkers Ju88A-1 of the Battle of Britain. Built from the box, only addition aerial wires. Okay kit, but the nose area is very over engineered.

This is the Airfix Boeing Clipper.  A lovely little kit that doesn't get the credit it deserves.

Thanks to Paul for starting this thread.

 

I thought I would share this one with you. 

Since asking for the Beaufort some years ago, I have become so impatient waiting for the Airfix release. So much so that I decided to have a go at the Special Hobby version. Well ! What a surprise I got. 

I had some big problems with the instructions. If you look closely, you will see that the instrument panel is way too far back based on the fact that I thought the pilot’s seat should be back against the canopy/fuselage joint. There were other issues as well, but suffice to say, can’t wait for the Airfix version.

Markings are tor 5 OTU, if you’re interested. Although there is a reference to say its 3 OTU. Plus, not sure I got the correct letter sizes.

 

Otherwise, I wouldn’t mind trying another one, but again, I am guessing the Airfix version would be a little easier to complete.
