In the recent Poole Vikings Model Show I actually had an aircraft model completed and ready to enter in the show’s competition. That’s a rare event in itself. I was very happy to win Gold, and also to be awarded the Peter Horne Memorial Trophy, for the best in show aircraft model made by a Poole Vikings member. Wow, I’m really honoured, that’s great. The model represents the movie star MiG-9 now preserved at Monino in Russia. It’s made from the 1/72 scale Aviastend vacform kit from the Ukraine. I have actually seen and photographed the real aircraft, during one of my wonderful visits to Russia.
