Here's a shot of a variety of models a completed around 10 years ago and I thought they looked kind of  neat even though the model work was not as good as it is today.

I recently completed this CF-18 Millenium bird in 1/72 scale using Hasegawa model with Leading Edge decals. The T-33 from Hasegawa with Leading Edge decals. The T-33 is in 414 Squadron colours based up the road ( Nanaimo) from me at 19 Wing Comox.

The CF-18 and T-33 are now permanently displayed at the CFB Comox Air Force Museum. 

I'm in the process of building models of every aircraft that has operated from Comox since the 1952 to present day.  All of these models will be on display at the museum. As of today I have displayed a CF-100, Aurora, Voodoo, Expeditor, Labrador, T-33, Tracker, CF-18 Millenium . I still have a long way to go and the museum wants an Argus model badly......so I'm thinking of trying to a major conversion.
