  1. Allan, from a rather poor plastic kit you made the most of it, nice NMF indeed

  2. Great build Allan. The aluminium lacquer finish is very realistic.

  3. Another great finish Allan, nice to follow in the GB.

  4. Great result after all that hard work, definitely liked.

  5. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Very nice and clean work Allan.

  6. By only seeing the headline pic, I knew it would be your work, Allan!
    Congratulations on another excellent model. It was nice to follow your build thread!

  7. A nice golden (silver) oldie, Allan.
    That Vampire looks great in silver.

  8. It was a joy to follow this great heavy breather conversion Allan! Great result from an old kit.

  9. A real beauty , Allan!

  10. You made it to the finish line and your Vampire looks terrific.
    You gotta love those old Grand Canyon panel lines! Looking forward to your next batch.

  11. Allan,
    I knew right away this was one of your builds. As usual the canopy is spotless... 🙂
    I have been watching your multiple builds in the De-Havilland group. This one turned out exceptionally nice.
    I also pressed the "liked" button. Well done my friend.

  12. Very smooth metallic finish on your Vampire, Allan. I am sure it looks like a small jewel on you shelf. The Vampire has such nice lines. It is interesting how much British aeronautical engineers were dedicated to twin boom jets with the Vampire, Venom, Sea Venom and Sea Vixen series.

  13. Looks great as always, and those air intakes give the Vamp an even more ominous demeanor!

  14. That is a cool little plane. Nicely done!
