Another build from the Simmons household. A little esoteric this time but back to my usual of 1/72 aircraft. I present the Revell Horten 229. I had a little fun with this one, adding some random(ish) structural members, blanking off the jet pipes to prevent seeing through to the wheel bays, and rounding off with a totally fictitious camouflage scheme along with unit markings from the spare decals box.
It's nice little kit of a quirky subject. Now can I justify a Zoukei Mura kit of the same subject?
Matchbox 1/700 HMS Kelly. This is Poppy's final build for her Duke of Edinburgh award skill and her second entry for the club theme this year - a bit of a curve ball but you'll understand if you read the blurb. She found the number of really fiddly parts a challenge! It turned out nice though.
This is the Secter Fiat G50 in 1/48th scale. Quite an old kit, but the fit was quite good and detail of some parts like the undercarriage and propeller were really nice but the engine and cockpit are a bit bare. I dressed these up with a resin engine which I wired up and added push rods, and parts of an old etched fret from Airwaves, plus some scratch building. The wheel wells are far too shallow for the wheels so I deepened them. This was an aircraft serving in Libya in 1942 so will join my “Desert” builds when we get to display again.
