Sixteen builds that I didn’t do articles on for one reason or another. If you’re real good, guess the scales.

My favourites are the F 101 Voodoo Lynx squadron, CF 104 Starfighter and the CF 105 Arrow. The latter is in my opinion the best interceptor the West never had during the Cold War. All the featured models are great!!! Well done!!!

Glad you like ’em. Only four have kit decals, and most are modified in some way to produce an accurate Canadian version. The Labrador, Sea King and Tracker needed the most work.
John Healy said on January 17, 2016
Great job on all! I love Canadian Starfighters.
I have four 1/72 CF 104 Gs, all Hasegawa. The one pictures has after market decals from Wintervalley.
Thanks John !!

All very nice work, Phil….especially the headline photo (and I count 32 Maple leafs from what the pics show….did I win?). lol
The Labrador (CH 113) needed a fair amount of scratch building.
The base is a Fujimi KV-107. There are 39 maple leafs visible, if you include the wee ones. Thanks !!

What are the decals on this CH113 Phil? I have one to do myself.
Phil Steele said on May 26, 2016
The decals are an combination of a set from Leading Edge, and those supplied with kit.

A fine collection there Phil.
Thank you for posting .
Thanks Simon !!

Phil, I’m guessing 1/72, at least for the Caribou, Aurora, Stoof, Neptune and the CH46(?), and the 707 and the C-130, plus the H-19 and 34.
The rest could be 48th. Not up on my Canadian designations as I should be.
1/48 for the Voodoo, 1/144 for the 707 (CC 137 Husky) The rest are 1/72. The tandem is a CH 113 Labrador.
Thanks Bernard !!

You’ve been busy, Phil, but I can’t see any reason for not posting any of these. I’ve got an excuse – I often can’t even access iModeler, and, when I can, I can’t post anything! Grr, it’s called the Great Chinese Firewall!
Most of them have a few “blems” that I wasn’t happy with. I intend to revisit them and then do new photo sessions at some point.
Thanks George !!
Paul Wilsford said on January 18, 2016
A real nice collection, Phil. I enjoyed it.
Thanks Paul !! Glad you like ’em.
Greg Kittinger said on January 19, 2016
Beautiful collection – and agree with those above that encourage you to post them individually so we can see more of each!
I wouldn’t have gotten the scales, but I’m pretty certain I detect a certain nationalistic theme going on here…
Phil Steele said on January 19, 2016
Yes–just a bit. Thanks Greg !!
Richard Mcstay said on January 26, 2016
There all great models Phil ! I’m guessing you are from Canada?
The Hercules is my favourite, great colours.
Phil Steele said on January 26, 2016
Thanks Richard !! And yes, I am a Canadian. Canada’s Hercs were repainted in 1982. Aircraft # 130330 was the original (and only CC 130 H) to receive this 3 tone grey wraparound scheme. The model was airbrushed free hand. The paint on the actual aircraft had a harder demarcation between the colors. It was destroyed along with 130331 in 1985 after a mid air collision, so it’s a commemorative build as well. The decals are an after market set from the old Canadian produced Trident Products line.
A lovely collection Phil, and as they have said to me, more pic’s.
I’ll TRY–thanks Allan !!

Quite a collection, Phil! I realise I’m a latecomer here, but you DO need to post more of these individually. I’ve seen the F-101 write-up so keep up the good work! The CH-47 is stunningly beautiful!
Phil Steele said on April 23, 2017
I lose. I only found 37 Maple Leaves! LoL! A beautiful collection of aircraft from our (us in the US) nearest friends & allies.
This “collection” is so nice I had to comment twice!
By the way, what kind of music do you play? I’m guessing from the picture you posted and your reference to Marshall amps, you do mostly hard rock. Am I close? No matter … keep rockin’! And posting your model work, too!
Not bad. I built ’em so I know where they all are.
Rock, Rock “n” Roll, Blues, etc.
