Wellllllll...

It's been 30 years since I did my last plastic model plane... all up I'd have built over 50. Best looking two were both 1:32 scale Pony and 109G. Most enjoyable models to build were actually an Airfix 1:72 B24 and Short Stirling.

I also did quite a bit of wooden modelling over the years. Did very detailed King Tiger, Sherman Firefly and JS3. Did solid wood Sunderland, Catalina and B29 at scary big scale.

The advantage of a Dad who let me loose with power tools at a *very* early age :) -- plus the realities of our 'weekend' house where for the first few years there was no water, sewerage or power... then when it did come on we were too far out of town for any tradesmen to bother coming -- so we did all out own electrical, plumbing, carpentry and concreting stuff, with me under age 10 for most of it :) [and power-wise.. remember Australia has 240V!] -- so with the modelling I think Dad thought if I could build concrete steps, solder plumbing pipe, help paint a tin roof etc he could let me go with a drill and a power saw :D

MB, Kraken's skin is for Warbirds. You can DL custom skins for most flight sims, including Targetware, IL-2, and CFS. Here's a link to a bluenoser skin for CFS on our sister site:

http://352ndfg.com/IL2/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=58

Here are some links to another DL:

Looks like it is for CFS but it doesn't say for sure. Let me know if you need more.

Embee,

A few more models and you can recreate that photo of all the squadrons scrambling into position on Bodney airfield! Very cool!!! I envy your collection.
