    Well guys my first model since the skin problem {all dried now - but not totally cleared} The F-14 Tomcat which is one of my dear wife's favourites - i promised her i would build this for an Easter present {a tad late due to the problem} Well, she likes it, and that makes me happy The model is a free download from here :
    http://www.saturn.dti.ne.jp/~eastern/pcraft/index.html It doesn't come with a undercarriage { i scratch built that } but even without it, she makes a really nice bird to look at. I hope you like her too - Coming soon.... Gary Pilsworth's lovely Mossy :thumb: PS sorry about the LOW quality pictures - but hey.. hard times = NO fix it YET !!! :cry:

    The 'Cat look splendid Peter! The u-cart is a great addition and she looks ready to be catapulted off the deck. The wheels look a bit "Pilsworth-ish" though....hmmmm ;)

    Great job!

    uhu02 has a wonderful model of Discovery from 2001, a space odyssey. I noted a centrifuge in the crew module during his early production design. Wouldn't it be great to see a modification (like he did with the time machine remake) that would detail the crew compartment ball section!
