And the winner is……. the Nord 2501 Noratlas
Well first of all let me just thank everyone who took part in this little venture, I only did it for fun and I think it was just that so thanks again to all the boys who voted.
You might be interested to know that it was actually a tie with four votes for the Noratlas and four votes for the EE Lightning so I made the final choice and as there are plenty of Lightning’s and (correct me if I’m wrong ) no Noratlas’s here on iModeler that’s the one I went for.in second place was the Seafire with three votes which didn’t surprise me and the P26 Peashooter which did surprise me, the Vospers were popular getting one for the Airfix ,one for the Revell and one unspecified so three overall, another surprise was that the Spitfire 22/24 and the Skyhawk attracted no votes at all -C’mon guys who doesn’t love a scooter ?
Anyhow there it is I will be starting the Noratlas once I’ve tidied up the man cave ,I tend to get everything put in it’s place and all the flat surfaces in there wiped over with a damp cloth to shift the dust from the last project and then start in a nice tidy environment ready to mess it all up again.
You may be able to see in the last pic that the decal sheet is well and truly fooked but I wasn’t worried because I always intended to build an Israeli version using the decal sheet from Isradecal however it seems that that sheet in 1/72 is discontinued and is only available in 1/48 so if anyone can help with either that decal option or any other please let me know ,paint and decals are a long way off but I will get there eventually also any information on colour schemes Israeli or otherwise would be a help.
