GAF Jindivik Mk 203B

Another Jindivik? Yep. This one was photographed at the South Australian Aviation Museum in Port Adelaide, a short ride by train from Adelaide city centre. From a distance they look much the same but once you are up close you […]

Jindivik towed target

The Jindivik drone could be fitted with a number of pods, wing extensions, flares and towed targets. The photos are showing the target that is displayed with the JIndivik at the Classic Jets Fighter Museum at Parafield, South Australia. Included […]

GAF Jindivik Mk 303A

Vought F-4U Corsair replica (VMF-124 Black Sheep) at Parafield Pt 2

MiniArt´s MB 170 in 1/35 populated by Tamiya´s chooks. Paint from Vallejo´s Model Air range, weathered with oils. Fiddly model, lots of small parts.
