On the subject of aircraft. Have you considered the De Havilland Dragon Rapide? Relatively small, and a biplane!

It was on my list, and I may make it one day when I have the skills, but I don't think I can do justice to it yet.

Looking at the piled cargo….i say you can never have enough!

Lots of cargo….boxes / barrels / containers / machine parts on pallets etc are a great way of filling up a yard / dockside / warehouse and best still, provide lots of interesting cover, never mind great objectives for theft, searches and the like…..make MORE!

Also have you considered the baby Lockheed Electra, the Beechcraft Model 18?

I just picked up one from ICM 1/48 No.48186 C18S Magic By Moonlight Airshow Aircraft or C18s American Passenger Aircraft

Only problem is that everyone will assume it's a Lockheed Electra...

A few more details:



I've always liked old style British signs, and a certain amount of on-line searching revealed a catalogue of old designs as a PDF that could be cut and pasted and printed out on paper. That’s me using technology, that is.

After that it was back to the usual. The printouts were mounted on thin card and the edges hidden using marker pens, which worked pretty well; I’ll have to remember that. The poles were wooden dowels, while the bases are card on steel washers to avoid Horizontal Sign Syndrome.

The red parts should really be a hollow frame but I think some artistic licence can be allowed…

Right and then you can up nerd them and inform that's not the case, just perfect. Even better if they tell you that you modelled the nose and windows wrong :D

Good point; the potential for out-nerding people had not occurred to me.

Mind you, making a freelance model and then convincing people it's real has comedy potential...

A bit of life intervening tomorrow; off for an interview and day working at a potential new employer. Hopefully this will yield the potential pay rise for model making items...

And when they out-nerd you, it is always polite to respond: "You are correct.  Have a cookie."

So with another police car, there had to be another bigger, better Gangster car. If the previous getaway car was for the lower order thugs to escape from their nefarious crimes, this one is for the upper class of mob society.




It’ll probably still end up being chased by the local police at some point, but at least it will do it in style…

It's a DiAgostini 1:43 ZIS 101A Limousine. Hopefully clicking on this will take you to an Ebay version:
