Glad you like the few models guys and gals :wink: I've posted up other built models before but that
was ages ago so will be lost in my one thousand and so posts :facepalm:

Love the EK diorama too, I have an old timer friend who lives on the"aerodrome"at EK. Jon.

Are you serious about paying me to build the Dambuster ? Which is your best bike ?? I do build for chaps!

The Just Jane diorama was built for someone who works at EK and was on display for a while
but the model has gone into his own home for safe keeping and the 1/48th Just Jane will
eventually reside in the museum under a display case.

It wasn't meant as a joke...I've had the unmade Tamiya Dambuster for many years, a relative was on the raid, which is why my cycle club has a Dambuster's Raid Ride from Woodhall Spa every May.

I used to be a member of the IPMS, but have not made kits for many years now.

Which is my best bike? What is your thinking behind the question (most valuable? Most sentimental value?)...I can then answer it.

Jon.

You must be very proud of that.
We try to get to the museum at least once a year so will look out for your model. They really are fantastic and I wish I had that level of skill and patience. :D

Hello Jon, I knew you wasn't messing about, just thought i'd be funny but some may not take it that way
what condition are the decals? though I have loads of spares of tamiya decals seeing as I've made over
20 of the things, some mine and some gone to good homes, If you are interested in me making the model
please feel free to PM me to ask for a quote, no pressure though.

Ask TGR about how committed I am in making a beautiful looking model ! He should know :lol:
