Current "Themes-of-Interest"

Postby tor lives » Tue Feb 23, 2021 1:58 pm

Because I don't already have enough model projects on the go :roll: , (and/or hanging from the curtain rail of doom :D ), I am setting out on yet another new modelling "theme of interest".
This one is titled "Infamous aircraft" and focuses on aircraft that have established a certain notoriety or infamy for whatever reason.
The first four contenders in this new model theme are:
1/ 1:144 Boeing 777-200, 9M-MRO - the missing Malaysian Airlines MH370 aircraft.
2/ 1:144 McDonnell Douglas DC-10 30, ZK-NZP - the Air New Zealand jet that crashed into Mt Erebus.
3/ 1:144 Airbus A300B2, F-BVGG - the Air France jet that was at the center of the Entebbe hijack and consequent successful rescue mission conducted by Israeli special forces, (this one is being stolen from the A/CAM Group Build that everyone quickly lost interest in :roll: ).
4/ 1:144 Concorde, F-BTSC - the Air France jet that crashed in Paris and, in so doing, effectively ended the era of commercial SST travel.
So....what's your modelling themes-of-interest ?

Mine is civil aircraft, with aircraft I have personally flown or at least have a chance of flying being a small niche within that.
Of course, I actually have to build something occasionally...
Pretending to do it TAC style with the big boys since 1987
Also, we don't need no steenkin' VLATs!

So after reading Paul's above list, I just now sat down and listed all my aero-modelling themes......oh boy :?
- Qantas Group
- TAA/Australian Airlines Group
- Ansett Group
- Virgin Group
- Airlines of the South Pacific
- Airline Deregulation in Australia
- Big Jet/Big Prop Movie Stars
- Anzac Airpower, (incorporating RAAF, RAN, AAAC, RNZAF)
- Military/Government Airliners
- Tankers (Air-to-Air Refuelling)
- Air Racers
- Aerobatic Teams
- The Prototypes
- Angels of Mercy: Emergency Services Aircraft
- Infamous Aircraft

Think I just worked out why I have a significantly overpopulated "curtain rail of doom", and nothing ever gets finished :? .
