Hi Cameron, welcome to the site, great stuff lovely builds, you should be proud of them as should your Dad :)
If you need anything just shout we're here to help, maybe eventually if we get enough of our own junior modellers we could do a group build just for you guys (just an idea, something to keep your interest up).

After two whole years, i have managed to get the forum working :)
The diorama is now just the plane and is done, and my current project is a diorama of a Nieuport 11 and Hannover C111a passing head on.

Welcome aboard Cameron. Sounds like you've set yourself a bit of a benchmark with the Zero. We'll look forward to seeing your postings in the future and good luck with your diorama and the crappy kit competition.

Weaving a silk purse from a sow's ear sounds like an idea for a future KM online fun-build competition eh Gary? We all probably have a the odd junkyard kits in our stashes that take up valuable space.

FYI guys, if you don't see your post it's because the junior section is moderated, all posts here have to be approved by a mod, no need to repost if you don't see yours appear.

Welcome Cameron. Congratulations on the Zero and good to see you doing research for the ME 163 and entering oddball comps like "crappy kit"
Old crappy kits can be challenging, great learning experiences and lots of fun
Look forward to seeing your builds on here

Back after a long hiatius from the site, decided i'd come back with some pictures of my latest project and a pic of my best model ever, my current project is a Fujimi F7U-5p Cutlass photo reconnaissance aircraft, and is the US navy's worst Aircraft, the photo recon version only had around 3 examples made, as the camera equipment added some more "unique flying characteristics" to the cutlass, the other kit is an Academy p51 D in 1/72 and is built in the scheme of Bob Hoovers yellow pace aircraft from the Reno air races, the aircraft has been converted to a post WWII aircraft with out machine guns, jump seat and VHF radio set on the tail, sorry if the pictures aren't the best i took them with my I-Pad.

Absolutely, what I was getting at is how good it was of Wellington to put on so many junior classes and for there to be the call for it. Great to see.
