Greatings from Australia !

We won't talk about cricket... [-X I heard on the radio there are some games at the moment between both our countries, with some dramas...and to be honest, I don't understand a darn thing about this game, maybe because I don't have a drop of Britsh Empire blood into ma veins? thinking about it, this might be the sport to follow for modelers, as nothing hardly happen on the field, the modeler won't miss a thing while gluing some plastic...

Just finished the Mach 2 Delta E Explorer 33 rocket, 1/48 scale, so 55cm high.
My first rocket and pretty happy with it, looks good in the display case too !
Not much to say about the assembly, it is short run but the parts are simple and there are not much of them, so just a bit a care is required.
Decals are laser printed, so a coat of decal film on it is required before use.
The 1/72 Soyuz looks good too, 72cm high, to make it is one thing, but where to store it once finished?

Yeah, let's not talk about the cricket ...

Nice to see something different, rockets do require a lot of tall display space :shock:

Hi Dean,
Sure it is something different. I was wondering if somebody in South Africa is producing a model of the rocket you were using some time ago now, for launching "weather satellites", I saw the one at the Zwartkop Museum.

I doubt it, but will make for a nice scratch-build project ...
