Busman's Holiday?

I'm currently building a few large and complex projects.

The Javelin from Airfix is without doubt a terrific kit.  The detail of the parts is excellent and it's a model that many builders have been keenly awaiting.   I'm also well on with a 1/24 Airfix Mosquito, which has  been one step forward and two back, and now needs a new undercarriage in metal to support it.

 Getting both of these to the stage you see in the photos has taken plenty of time.   In between, to keep me going, I like to relax with something a little faster-moving.  Enter.....another Airfix kit.  They're doing well these days aren't they?  This little Vampire is quite toothsome - nice detail, good fit, lovely decals, started and finished in under a week.

Now I'm ready to move the bigger builds along.  Metal Mosquito legs have arrived, Javelin is almost complete.  There's a lot to be said for the busman's holiday.
