Thank you Haddock and Zak - yes not only is it proper modelling but its enjoyable.
So another missile a AS4 Kitchen - again no tube so filled the nose of the brass tube with a rod of aluminium so I could grind it down to a point.

Now for an older and larger missile -- a AS3 Kangeroo.  Both ends of the body tapered and wings added.

Back from Norwich and just for a change found a model shop and bought a Lavochkin LA-5FN World War 2 fighter.
This should show the difference in size of the WW2 fighters against the new missiles, on display in the museum.

Well Msea,
We might even make an aircraft modeller out of you yet...!
Nice work in a small aircraft scale.
A high level of detail, and ingenuity in this build, well done.
Cheers,
Bigkev

This should keep you happy Kevin - the Russian Museum has put up a Brid and Wold poster on the wire.

Tail fins added to the AS3 Kangaroo.
The nose section is converted from the top of a toothpaste tube - throw nothing away you never know what it will come in for in the future - hohoho

Trial layout with planes and missiles - now to do some more work on the fence and surrounding area.

After reading about Kubinka the Russian tank museum - and how they did not like model types climbing all over the exhibitions, thought this was a good sign to put up on the fence. Now who in our little lot would annoy the Russians the most - I am saying NOTHING.

Nope, it doesn't do it for me.
Eastern Bloc countries are not generally that that polite and considerate.
What about, 'Come close and you will be shot' a simple more obvious warning to us modellers!...

What about having something similar for 'Our Show'???

Cheers,
