The Holy Grail for me would be a 48th Buccaneer S2 & Spey Phantom,I call them the "Dream Team".As regards other aircraft ,I would like to see the Vampire trainer scaled up to 48th scale ,as Airfix are doing with the Tiger Moth.

In the warship line I think a 350th kit of HMS Cavalier destroyer would be a good bet,the real thing is preserved in Chatham Dockyard,and it would form a basis for many other late WW2 RN destroyer classes.

I can but dream.

I`ve a soft spot for the old "Meat-Box".I`ve built two of the F-8 marks ,and now I just finished the FR9 variant.It is a good kit ,but IMO not as good the Hunter kit,as it needed a bit of fettling in parts. Hopefully in the near future I will build a T7 variant ,I`m just waiting for the conversion set to arrive from the US.

 Thanks for looking

I don`t normally build biplanes ,but I had to build the Walrus when it was released.

I chose an aircraft embarked on the County class cruiser HMS Cornwall,I hope soon to start building that ship ,when the kit becomes available.The rigging was made from stretched sprue ,and I enjoyed building it,it is a good kit.

Hi Phil, great to see you here, I remember your work from 'another place', always a pleasure to view such quality modelling.

Thanks for the welcome.If it is "another place" i`m thinking about ,I haven`t contributed on there since 2012!

Hello there! Im Phil ,and I build models.I`ve been building kits since 1955 ,my first kit was a Revell Douglas Skyrocket.My main interests are 350th scale warships ,and 48th scale aircraft.I do some commision work for the warships ,and I scratch build vessels that are not available in kit form,which is very satisifing.

 I`m looking forward to contributing to this forum.

 Regards Phil

Thanks for that David .I believe that Aerocraft is a spinoff from Alleycat,anyway I shall buy a couple of these sets when they became available.I already have a decal sheet for T-7`s ,all RAF aircraft, 32 options in all ,the trouble is choosing which ones  to build!

Nice looking builds.

A trainer is going to need a fair bit of conversion given the different spine and forward fuselage.

I have heard that a firm called "Aerograph Models" are going to make a conversion set for a Hunter T7 .It will be made for the Airfix Hunter kit,which should make it a bit easier  to do it.
