Another great creation Ralph. I love your building style which along with the brick-built windscreen give it a real nostalgic classic Lego feel. I don't mean to say it's old-fashioned! Great creative use of parts too.

Do you keep your models built? That'd make quite an impressive display.

Thank you. In my book, a 'classic LEGO feel' is a good thing, so I appreciate your comment. I do keep most of my models together. I have been taking apart a few things in the last (mostly things I built years ago and that look a bit pedestrian compared to my newer stuff), but I've got about 40 aircraft and helicopter models.

I don't have the space I'd need to put them all on display at home. In may 2008 I gather all the aircraft and helicopter models that I had at the time.

The collection has grown a lot since then. I've also taken stuff to public displays. Here's a picture of part of my display at the Great Western LEGO show in Swindon (UK) in October 2008:

It is great to see them all together. I've recently found a new job and will be moving in the next few months. One priority in house-hunting will be havinga decent-sized room where I can put up some more shelves, so that I don't have to keep my models stored away in boxes.  

Cheers,
Ralph

This is truley an amazing Moc of the SH-14D Lynx you made Ralph!
There is so many details all over. That you managed to create the folding rotors is just brilliant to mention one thing.
Nicly built figs to go with it as well.
Going to your Flickr account again made me ones again be caught up there for a long timeto see the rest of your work.

What is your approach to keeping bricks in stock. When you are finished with your model do you order the replacement bricks so you can keep building without depleting your stock?

Great models BTW; do you have a Flickr or Brickshelf gallery(ies)?

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I was away from home for a few days.

Rather than replacing bricks I've used I tend to buy parts/ sets in advance with future projects in mind. The pictures I posted link to my flickr account (and it's in my signature). I also have an account on brickshelf. but I haven't updated it in months.
