Thank you!

I finally was able to get a fairly decent photo of me with my 1/48 Airfix Gloster Javelin kit Best of Show award for February. Even managed to include the 1/48 Airfix Lightning that won it for me. And if you look closely you will see a couple of 1/72 Javelins (and a Sea Vixen) from years gone by. I was truly surprised and humbled by this award, and thank all that made it possible. I’ve always been intriqued by delta winged aircraft, and the 1/48 Airfix Javelin has been on my wish list for some time. I’m looking forward to building this kit, and believe I will use the kit decals, and do it as the aircraft from 64 Squadron (as shown on the box art), with the distinctive blue Scarab beetle squadron marking, flanked by red and blue “trellis” design, on the fin.

Best regards, and thank you!

  16. Many thanks to all of you, for your kind thoughts and congratulations.
    I am really looking forward to building the Airfix Javelin, but I have to be honest, and say that I am kind of slow, and I hope you will be patient!
    I will get there, and with any luck (which I always use when I can find it), the results will be worth the wait! Thank you, and stay tuned!
