Really nice portfolio - especially like the "Canadian" stuff. Nice to see a bit "out of the ordinary" projects. Best regards from Denmark Morten

Thanks for your kind words everyone, I really appreciate it. Bob ps - more to come, here's what I'm working on now... Another Real Model LAVIII C&C version (Miloslav, I'm working on an in-box review right now for Armorama), a 1/32 Special Hobby X-15A2, a Canadian Leopard C2 and a 2A6M, an IDF Centurion Shot 'Kal, a 1/32 scale Apollo 8 (see my posting on the modelgeek site about talking to Jim Lovell himsel!!!), and Lion Roar's Nebelwerfer 42. cheers all....

Bob, what is the story with the bottled water attached to the aerial? Sorry, if the answer is really obvious...

Hi Matthew They are empty water bottles attached upside down to the antennas so the crews can put chemical light sticks in them for night operations. You just bend the antenna down, unscrew the cap, pop in a chem-light and you're set. When the light dims, you just pop off the cap, the old light stick drops out and you stuff in a new chem-light. It's makes it easy to change colours too if you have to. cheers Bob
