28mm Victorian Sci-Fi Scout Aeronef HMS "Angry" and pilots from.....

.....Ironclad Miniatures and Copplestone Castings.

A 28mm mostly resin model from Ironclad Miniatures, she has a Royal Navy crew from Copplestone Castings painted around here somewhere as well, the pilots are from Copplestone as well, this is a small part of the latest period showing the British government has a long reach and a member of the foreign office to place anywhere there's a hint of trouble or a sniff of someone else's resources!

A nice kit all the same.........

  15. That's a nice looking bit of kit Fran. Well yes, they do have a bit of a long reach, but not as long as it used to be:)

    Hey, I'm mucking about in Germany right now (LAF) and am getting ready to post some Celts in an Ancients Challenge they have going on. We may owe those feckers money, but there's an O'Leary on the ground she's going to wreak a little havoc while she's there. I may even open up a hub and call it "Southern LAF".

    1. It'll take two hours to get from my hub to the real LAF, but the ride will be cheap and so will the stewardesses:)

  17. Ahhh Space 1899 that takes me back. I kind of wish I had a use for such things. But I am trying to keep my projects under control. I shall have to live vicariously through yours. Nicely done mate, really good.

  27. What popped into my head was that I'd like to see a little Doctor Who mini next to it.

    We were at Barnes yesterday and they had little mini Doctor Who dolls. Though I don't think dolls is the correct word.

    Anyway, good to see you posting.

  28. Is it maybe just inclining towards steampunk?

  29. Very smart Fran. I have often looked at these and keep telling myself, one day I'll get round to scratch building one!

  32. Very nice Fran. Almost...almost tempting enough to make me splurge on VSF

  33. Are you sure you're not a rivet counter?
    Lovely work Fran. :)

  34. You can feel the comfort with the noise cancellation technology that wipes out the disturbing
    surrounding noises. The Galaxy S has a great 5 MP camera with a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels.
    It will show you a list of Active Applications and you can press End to
    shut them down individually or press End All to close everything.
